{Tribute} ~ Reflections On The Life & Our Love For Whitney “Nippy” Houston ~

  Sunrise, August 9, 1963 { ~ Whitney “Nippy” Houston ~ } Sunset February 11, 2012

Hello MY friend! You were gone too soon and I miss you SO much. By far, you were the most humane like celebrity to me and us in your lifetime…

 

Your presence is still felt and oh how we miss the voice…

In a 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer Whitney is quoted as saying in 2012 she would be “Retired… Sitting, looking at my daughter grow up, become a great woman of God, grandchildren,”

In her younger years Whitney shared ”In grammar school some of the girls had problems with me. My face was too light. My hair was too long. It was the black-consciousness period, and I felt really bad. I finally faced the fact that it isn’t a crime not having friends. Being alone means you have fewer problems. When I decided to be a singer, my mother warned me I’d be alone a lot. Basically we all are. Loneliness comes with life.”

{ ~ A Young Whitney Houston ~ }

“I wanted to be a teacher. I love children, so I wanted to deal with children. Then I wanted to be a veterinarian. But by the age of 10 or 11, when I opened my mouth and said, ‘Oh God, what’s this?’ I kind of knew teaching and being a veterinarian were going to have to wait. What’s in your soul is in your soul.”

She would later grow to believe that the media was … They’re devils to me … and they’re out to eat my flesh.”  However no matter what she believed that the camera was her friend. How Lioness of her! Lol…

Here is her quote…

“From the beginning, the camera and I were great friends. I know the eye of the camera is on me — eye to eye. It loves me, and I love it.” And I have to admit the camera did LOVE Whitney and Whitney LOVED it back!
