Video: What's Wrong With Whitney Houston? She Bombs In Australia

By Robert Paul Reyes

Former fans of Whitney Houston "stormed out" of her first Australian show in twelve years, says AFP, after the singer`s wheezing made it difficult to hit high notes (also, she reportedly interrupted a version of "I Will Always Love You" just before the climax to towel herself down and take a drink of water). Explains one delightfully irate attendee: "She couldn`t entertain a dead rat, to be honest." The YouTube evidence seems to back him up on that.

Whitney Houston was one of my favorite singers of the 80`s & 90`s, in spite of the fact that she wasted her exceptional voice singing bland pop songs instead of Gospel or R & B.

Houston couldn`t survive the lethal combination of Bobby Brown & crack, and she`s just a shell of her former self. I was pulling for Whitney to make a triumphant comeback, but if this video proves that crack will always take its toll.

One disgusted Aussie complained that Whitney couldn`t entertain a dead rat, I would argue that a dead rat would be more entertaining that Whitney Houston.

I`m thrilled that Whitney finally gave up crack, let`s hope to God she gives up performing. Whitney is washed up! Give it up girlfriend!
