Whitney Houston: 2009 Grammys Red Carpet

February 8th, 2009 // 18 Comments

When she first sang about The Greatest Love of All so many years ago, Whitney Houston had no idea she was describing the overwhelming feeling of affection I have for the goofiest of all divas.

In a strapless, blue and white gown and long, sparkly earrings, Whitney looked more like her old-school glamorous self than she ever has. Sassy Whit even flashed a little thigh to the audience and an electrifying smile to reassure the Grammy audience that her comeback is in full force.

I know I’m gushing, but at this point, I’m just so happy she’s not just grabbing the first thing she gets a hold of from the wig box on the way out the house.

    America dont know what it has but it is blessed with a woman. A woman that has touched so many souls, so many she could not count them all. A woman who showed that if there was another level of music, that it could be reached. A woman who’s voice harmonized poeple after battle. A woman who sing the star-sprangled banner from the heart that it no longer is just the American natinal anthem but that it is a global anthem. I sit in South Africa and say that America doesn’t know what it has. Love this woman and help her in her battles. Be glad you were in her lifetime and thank god with the little that he gave through her so we could know what heaven would be like one day. Whitney Houston is mighty.

    I dont know what grammy award show everyone was watching but from what I could see whitney was on cloud nine if you know what i mean. Dont get me wrong, she is a great inspiration to many, but please Black people, can we show up to a function sober? Home girl was on it!

    Just wondering when will we as a people stop putting one another down, lets be thankful to God that Whitney is still here, and furthermore; let’s face it she is and will all ways be the best of the best so get over it, and take out sometime to give credit where credit is do that’s all I have to say, Whitney my sister keep on doing what you have been blessed to do and remember when God bless you can’t NO MAN Curse you, be bless.

    Girl you look fabulous, peace, xo

    Whitney Houston was high at the Grammys. No doubt in my mind….
    Must have been the Clive Davis pre-grammy party that got to her.
    She could hardly keep her eyes open and barely got thru her assignment.

    No way has she kicked her habit….

    America don’t know what it has but it is blessed with Whitney Houston. A Diva that has touched so many people’s souls.Whitney and Jennifer Hudson duet was awesome. After successful trips to rehab, Houston divorced Brown and gained custody of their only daughter in 2006. Her seventh studio album is scheduled for release sometime in 2009.when she sang Jennifer Hudson number
    ”spotlight” in Mezzo-Soprano and Soft -Alto the audience were delighted and begged for more.Houston rose to international fame in the mid-1980s and her crossover success opened doors for many other African American musicians to find success in pop music, good luck mizz houston

    Granted Whitney is a great singer but that does not make her a saint. She has one great gift but nothing else. She is just another substance abuser out there like thousands of others. Just because she has a great voice, money and fame I guess we are suppose to give her a free pass. I think this is pathetic.

  11. joy

    Yes she looked beautiful but omg… I thought I was the only one who caught it …. that she was stoned. She kept slurring her words and I could tell she was not sober. What ever she was on was heavy.I thought she stopped using, and she is still addicted. Its really sad to see such a beautiful woman use her life and talent in such a destructive way.

  12. Deanna

    She was totally on something or drunk

  13. Penyra

    What a load of Douchebags trying to make even the slightest glitch into a massive scandal….What a bunch of Drama Queens, Whitney do your thing girl…these Assholes need a life. PERIOD.

  14. mojo

    if you ever known anyone that had a cocaine habbit for an extended period of time know that they are not the same after, there is permanent damage. but that dosent mean you give them a life sentence as a right off, alot of americans seem to hate anyone who ever had a substance problome and seem to think that they should go away somewhere disappear, well, she is back because she can still perform, she is like Ozzy, cant understand a word he says, but when he gets on stage he’s on it, and whitney is way better perfomer than Ozzy right now, so why the double standard eh?

  15. jaquan

    she is her own worst enemy. Lets keep it real people she’s done!! A TOTAL WASTE.

    “please black people can you show up for a function sober” the person that posted that comment must have been on the same garbage Whitney ws on the night of the awrads.YOUR COMMENT WAS IGNORANCE AT IT’S BEST

    Whitney may have a problem that she’s trying to deal with – however, that does not make us any better than her for we all have our own problems in different ways. Before we could start pointing a finger on her, lets look at ourselves and try and make our lives better. Look for the good in people and dwell on it y’all!
    Whitney – you have an amazing voice! Go light the World!

    I think she is such a beautiful woman, She’s as fine as a crisp $ 1000.00 bil. I wish I can meet her and have a talk with her. She can sing for me as long as she wants to. I’m in love with the way she look. Bobby was a fool to continue to go to jail and be a dam jerk off. Now she has a baby she can now train just like she want. Train him , Baby, Train him like you should. Make him your boy- toy of a man . You can and I know you will School him Right.
