Powerhouse vocalist Whitney Houston is set to release a new album, following almost a decade of making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
If you were making a chick flick in the 90s, Whitney was your go-to girl for the soundtrack. But after making The Bodyguard a colossal success on the strength of her lung power alone, everything fell apart.
Drug allegations flew around, her marriage hit the skids and one disastrous interview on a US talk show produced this corker:
"Crack is cheap. I make too much money to ever smoke crack. Let's get that straight. Okay? We don't do crack. We don't do that. Crack is wack."
Whitney's new album is due out in August. Now if only someone would remix Whitney's 'crack is wack' rap, life would pretty much be perfect.
