Whitney Houston‘s daughter has emotional tell all with Oprah Winfrey: She has come to me but I dare not listen to her music yet….
Despite the negative effects that a high profile career in the entertainment industry can wreak on an entertainer, as Bobbi Kristina Brown can personally attest to, the 19 year old Sunday evening in an emotional interview with Oprah Winfrey told the talk show host that she nevertheless wants to pursue a career as an actress or singer, just like her mother, Whitney Houston.
Offered Bobbi Kristina: ‘I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me “I’m right here I’ve got you” I can always feel her with me. She passes through me all the time.’
With respect to those who have been overtly critical of her mother since her death, Bobbi Kristina offered the following:
‘All that negativity it’s garbage – that’s not my mother that’s not who she is. In reality I know who she was, her family know who she was, you know who she was.’
What though is bizarre is the claim that Bobbi had no sense of her mother’s fame/iconic status until she had passed away, which perhaps says more about how she was exposed to her mother in a state of redress, vulnerability that so few of us ever got to see.
Could this then have been the lull that allowed Bobbi Kristina to also experiment with narcotics and delve into self abandon and disillusion, the very thing said to have cost her mother’s life…?
‘I just saw her as mom. When I realised that my mom was a worldwide icon was when we did gone on tour and then the funeral and everything.’
How bittersweet life can be…
