About a "Girl" Who Refused to Just Shut up and Take Orders

You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

Whitney Houston: Resumes European Tour Despite Stage Mishaps

Comments (38)


Last week, Whitney Houston's much-anticipated European tour stalled due to an alleged relapsed drug addiction. After addressing the rumors and blaming the cancellations on a "respiratory infection," the 'I Will Always Love You' diva finally kicked off the European leg of her world tour last night in Birmingham, England.

Though Houston graced the U.K. audience with classics from her illustrious catalog of hits, fans grew a bit apprehensive once she left her set for a lengthy wardrobe change.
People magazine reported the 15,000 fans in attendance began to boo the songstress despite the fact that her brother, Gary Houston, attempted to entertain them with a not so enlightening solo performance of Whitney's hit 'I'm Every Women.'

Not one to displease her admirers, Houston returned to the stage 15 minutes later.

Fans noted that she had trouble hitting certain high notes and often appeared winded. She went onto apologize for the unexpected interval.

"Thank you for being understanding, letting me dry off and change my clothes," she said. "I heard you get mad ... but I understand, I'm here now," which prompted her to later ask the arena staff, "If there is any [air-conditioning] in the house, please turn it off. I just got over a really bad cold. ... Please make it quick!"

After last week's reported hospitalization, Houston told People magazine that she is now "feeling great" and "ready to move on and continue my world tour," calling the drug abuse rumors "ridiculous" and stating, "At this point, I just don't respond. I don't even read it."

She plans to reschedule four of her earlier shows.

Whitney Houston's 'Nothing But Love World Tour' continues through June 17.
