....I swear everyone on this site must be under the age of 12 if you all are just hearing that Whitney Houston was indeed a ***.
The fact that Whitney was a closeted *** is only news to the young and/or the uninformed.
And did her sexual orientation play an integral part in her unhappiness, and ultimate demise?---Without question.
However, the shame lies not in her sexual preference---the shame lies with the people that would not allow her to be who she really was---businesses partnerships, but mostly certain family members---keep in mind Whitney's strict religious, gospel, black upbringing.
Also keep in mind that Whitney's rise to fame came in the 1980s-- you kids are too young or were still swimming around in your father's testicles to know, but back then was not like today in how now females kissing females is considered hot.
Back in the day girls getting it on with other girls was definitely not considered hot, especially when the girl in question comes from a tight-knit religious family background, and now happens to be worth millions of dollars---this was the kind of thing that could end careers, not to mention the embarrassment it would incur upon the family
Ultimately, the whole truth about how Whitney really lived, and how and why she really died, will be disclosed. And I believe that the truth should come out because it will save the lives of many of those who are currently living the same lie that Whitney herself was forced to live.
Put yourselves in Whitney's shoes for a moment, and think of life and how it would be for you if you could not be who you really are, or be with whom you really wanted to be.
Would you be happy???
Could you live or even want to continue to live???...Artofwar
