Rather than embarking on a proper comeback, Whitney Houston appears to be settling for continuing status as a washed up spectacle. Houston’s opportunity to make up for the 3 cancelled shows scheduled at London’s O2 Arena were dashed recently when a weak performance caused a hundreds of fans to literally walk out of the concert. Here’s just a portion of the tragedy:
This painfully haggard presentation caused one former fan to say, “I think we should be offered our money back. It was a shambolic performance.” Concert-goers who opted to stick and stay throughout the entire show told sources that the one-time diva needed 3 attempts to get through her signature ballot, “I Will Always Love You.”
Whitney’s excuse for her failed performance involved blaming the arena’s air-conditioning system as well we the following statement to the disappointed crowd:
“She don’t want to come, my soprano friend. Sometimes the old girl sings, but not tonight. I want to do it, but she doesn’t want to. She’s getting a little… temperamental, even.”
It may be too late to advise Houston to quit while she’s ahead, but it sure doesn’t hurt to try. She’s clearly not equipped for a comeback but at the very least she should try to preserve whatever dignity she has left.
