Description

Robyn knew Whitney was struggling with addictions and it seemed that made better headlines then the renowned career she had paving her own way in music. Crawford describes the dynamic that LGBT kids have experienced from the beginning of time: the two could be open about being inseparable best friends, but had to hide the physical side of their relationship. I do not feel that Robyn was trying to exploit her friendship with Whitney in any way; instead, I feel like she was trying to set the record straight and tell her truth as she knew it. The warping effect of denial isn’t easily shrugged off and there is an overwhelming sense, both in the book and in person, of someone running a gamut of internal barriers.

There was nothing Crawford could do but plead with her to stop and report her drug use to her mother. The personally identifying information you provide will not be sold, shared, or used for purposes other than to communicate with you about American Public Media programs. I always brought my Whitney cassette tape with me while I patiently waited my turn to be able to listen to it.There were Houston's first solo recordings, with the already-seasoned singer nailing the lead to "How Will I Know" in one take. Together during countless sold-out world tours, behind the scenes as hit after hit was recorded, through Whitney’s marriage and the birth of her daughter, the two navigated often challenging families, great loves, and painful losses, always supporting each other with laughter and friendship.

I think she finally decided so many years later to speak about her friendship with Whitney so the rest of the world could see the Whitney she knew.

Bobby knew that Whitney loved him, but he also knew she wasn't in love with him and only married him to shrug off the gay rumours. Crawford and Houston were teenagers when they met at a community centre in East Orange, New Jersey, the singer the younger by three years. Even though there were the rumors, lies, gossip and dysfunctional ways that were said and written about. Houston told Time magazine, wounding her friend with the offensive intimation that homosexuality was akin to bestiality.

People can grow up in many ways, and I think Robyn was only able to see the negative ways Whitney grew, because she was not the same teenager she met in East Orange, the same person she had all these amazing memories with. There are a handful of singers who, when you hear their voice for the first time give you a "wow" moment and a tingle that touches you deep.Crawford was there for Houston's meeting with Michael Jackson; the two women jumped on the Neverland trampoline and winced at a roomful of dolls that a housekeeper said were prone to walk around at night. They should live the rest of lives in shame because Whitney and Bobbi Kristina’s blood is on their hands. A Song for You ] is a story of becoming, of starting over and loving again, of healing in immeasurable ways that are both scarring yet beautiful.
