These days, Whitney Houston sounds like Britney Spears and looks like Courtney Love.
We wish this singer the best, but watch her sing in Australia. She's an absolute mess.
But that's actually not true, publicist Kristen Foster somehow claims. She told E! News yesterday:
"Whitney is in great health and having a terrific time on her tour and with her fans. There were over 9,000 people at her show in Brisbane, and there were over 12,000 at Acer Arena last night in Sydney. Her fans were dancing and singing along with her and Whitney appreciates their support."
But with Whitney stopping mid-song to take water breaks, and actually having back-up singers hit the high notes on "I Will Always Love You," many concert-goers have been anything but supportive.
One audience member told Asiancorrespondent.com that Houston "couldn't entertain a dead rat," which may be our favorite quote of the decade.
The Sydney Morning Herald tried to offer Whitney a few props, citing her "incoherence," but saying those in attendance eventually "warmed to her."
Sadly, at this point in her once-incredible career, this passes for high praise for Houston.
