There Is A Doc Being Made About Whitney Houston’s Life…and Death

Woah, this is gonna be CRAZY!

The first ever estate-authorized documentary on Whitney Houston is in the works, with Kevin Macdonald at the helm set to direct.

Sure, it could be a pandering, soft-focus look at the singer’s life, but it could also be awesome and I’m choosing to believe it’s going to be awesome, what with the “unprecedented” levels of access he has to Whitney’s closest family and friends, alongside hours and hours of never before seen video from the singer’s life at every point.

Macdonald has already won an Oscar for his powerful terrorism documentary One Day In September, said of his motivation centering on Whitney in the project:

“The story that is never told about Whitney is just how brilliant she was as an artist; by many measures she had the greatest voice of the last 50 years. She changed the way pop music was sung — bringing it back full circle to its blues and gospel roots. She was also completely unique in being a black pop star who sold in countries where black artists don’t traditionally sell.”

Macdonald included more thoughts on what we should expect in the film:

“We have access to never-before-seen footage of Whitney that charts her whole life from her beginnings singing in her Church’s gospel choir to the day of her tragic death at the age of 48, and three decades of her music including exclusive demo recordings, rare performances and audio archive. Although we won’t shy away from the darker parts of Whitney’s life — her descent into addiction — I want audiences to walk out of the cinema and feel positive about Whitney and her music. I want to reveal a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew; and a woman those new to her life and music will never forget.”

No date has been set yet for a release, but obvi, it’s going to be a huge deal. I just hope it’s done right!

Bobbi Kristina Dies At 22

The World Premiere of SPARKLE in Hollywood

Sad news, y’all.

Yesterday, Bobbi Kristina Brown died at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia surrounded by her family.  As we reported, she spent a long time on life support while Bobby Brown mysteriously talked about her getting better, and then not. And then some more god talk, and now, this. She was 22.

“She is finally at peace in the arms of God,” the Houston family said in statement to ET. “We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

It’s been almost six months since Whitney Houston’s daughter was found unresponsive in her bathtub, and was then taken to North Fulton Hospital and eventually placed in a medically induced coma at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital. Two months before this tragic news, Bobbi was moved to a rehabilitation center, where she remained until June 24, when she was moved to the hospice center.

“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate,” Pat Houston told ET in a statement that day. “We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”

A very tragic end to a very short life.

Bobbi Kristina Brown Surrounded By Pictures Of Whitney Houston In Hospice

Bobbi Kristina Brown Surrounded By Pictures Of Whitney Houston In Hospice

In a new development surrounding the tragedy that is Bobbi Kristina Brown’s situation, we’ve learned that in her final days, she is surrounded by music and pictures of her late mother Whitney Houston.

A source close to the situation said, “After the decision was made to take her off life support, Bobbi Kristina was moved to the facility so she could pass on peacefully. The family wanted Bobbi Kristina to be comfortable.”

The source went on to say, “She was dressed in her favorite pajamas, and surrounded by framed photographs of her and her mother. The lights in her room were dimmed, and scented candles were lit.”

The inside added, “Whitney’s songs that were her favorites, including ‘Greatest Love of All,’ ‘I Will Always Love You’ and ‘Didn’t We Almost Have It All,’ played softly.”

So sad. We hope that she is resting comfortably as she goes through the final stages of her life.
