Whitney Houston: Drunk on X Factor?

by at . Comments

Whitney Houston's increasingly bizarre behavior continued Sunday as the star's comeback tour brought her to Simon Cowell's UK reality show X Factor.

Thankfully for all involved, the incident wasn't X-rated. But it was close. Whitney Houston did experience a wardrobe malfunction as her dress nearly fell off.

Really. "I sang myself out of my clothes," Houston joked afterward.

X Factor viewers almost - so close! - got to see Whitney Houston nude.

Hey, dresses fall off. Just ask Lindsay Lohan. These things happen sometimes.

But like her Good Morning America debacle, it was Whitney Houston's lackluster performance all around that was even more puzzling to X Factor fans.

Is this woman drunk, or just cashing paychecks and phoning these shows in? If so, her new song's title, "Million Dollar Bill," is appropriate, if ironic.

You tell us. Check out Whitney "performing" on X Factor below ...

She barely sang at all, there was a track with lots of vocals on it. In her early days all she had to do was stand on the stage looking beautiful and belt out a song, no backup dancers, no choreography. Now she had all these dancers to distract the viewers from the fact that every 30 seconds or so she'd belt out "oh oh oh" and the rest of the time it was the track. A very lazy performance, and she did seem out of it at the end. But damn, she was about 46 when this was taped and she was still gorgeous. Now that she's gone, and we've all read a lot about her life, you can view footage like this with a more knowing eye. It's very sad.

Some might say she kind of looks pretty drunk etc but I think she's just a bit brain damaged that's all. Then again she could just be both. That interview section at the end is pretty telling. She's not 100% responsive and/or bright in her demeanor. At least she's not stoned which is amazing for her.

Whitney's dress was too long for her to perform in, and I did see that she did toke the back part aloose herself. Her voice is not as good as it used to be but she still sings well. I feel that maybe she could have been tired from all the performing she did but in reality her looks was like she was high.

She does look a little typsey. Plus she stumbled in her words when she was about 20 seconds into the song and her eyes were squinting.
She is a rock star all stars have ups and downs and they shouldnt have been made fun of at all like all stars we should stand by them and understand there problems or what ever happened to her!

After reading more hurtful comments about whitney, i know that some ppl r goin 2 hell 4 sure. The important thing 2 remember is that her fans will always outnumber her haters!!!! I feel 4 whitney so much. She didn't even have 2 do a comeback after all the trauma shes been tru, but she did and then 2 be critisized 4 her every move is just ridiculous. I don't want ppl to hate her just cos of 1 performance. Please stop. ALL WHITNEY HATERS OF THE WORLD I WANT U 2 REMEMBER:
To judge a person is very easy thing to do but one day you'll be judged,so be careful! I judge ppl too but I regret it unless its someone really bad who deserves it.
What I'm really trying to say, is... God, please give Whitney the strength 2 pull thru, pls shield her from hurtful comments and keep her strong. p.s If all haters DONT STOP, I will hunt you down AND FEED U TO YOUR DOGS!!!

And as to nick griffin and john: SHUT THE HELL UP! think about the many celebs who have been on drugs and think about the few who have bothered to get off their ass and not sit home feeling sorry 4 themselves but to come back. sure whitney isnt as good as she was b4. how can u expect her 2 be? evry artist like beyonce, pink, shakira, mya, brandy, alicia keys, cristina, britney and even MARIAH CAREY have all considered whitney 2 be an idol. no female singer has come close 2 wat she has achieved.
so maybe if she doesn't grow wings and friggin fly on stage, she doesn't hav 2 cos her presence says it all. and she wasnt even drunk so wtf! as 4 the short man, well he wasnt exactly a saint if u KNO WAT I MEAN!

I'm a huge Whitney fan!!! i'm not gonna be naive and say that this performance was one of her best. but u have 2 consider her age, what she haS been thru and what an icon she is!!! u can't expect a woman approaching 50 to still sing the same she did when she was 20. this isjust like mj, after thriller,bad and dangerous, evry1 was saying"oh, he's lost it" and cos of the court case and evrything ppl were turning against him yet he pulled thru and his fans stood by him. why can't we do the same 4 whitney?!
