Whitney Houston: Continuing To Disappoint Fans Overseas As Speculation Over Weight Gain Ensues

Comments (784)



There's little chance that Whitney Houston's European fans will always love her after her current world tour wraps.

As many news outlets have reported, what was supposed to be a comeback tour for 'The Bodyguard' actress has turned into a mess of sorts with fans walking out of her concerts in droves.

As previously reported, the six-time Grammy Award-winner has suffered from various health problems over the past few weeks and has postponed four dates on her European 'Nothing But Love' tour.

Now comes news that hundreds of her Denmark fans walked of her concert last week.

Though she sounded composed and strong on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' last September, Houston's performances as of late in Birmingham, England and London were off-key and pitchy and featured the 'Didn't We Almost Have It All' singer -- who, during the early 1990s was internationally known as 'The Voice' -- struggling to actually get the words out. Instead, some of her legendary verses are now talked out instead of belted in the mezzo-soprano tone that her fans have come to expect.

On June 4 in Denmark, the 46 year-old former chart-topper reportedly appeared sweaty and bloated onstage. Music critics from the country's major newspaper, the Copenhagen Post said she "looked and sounded like a person who doesn't have many years left to live." They rated the 'I Will Always Love You' singer's performance at a zero.

Yesterday, NBC's 'Today Show' included a medley of sound clips of her recent shows in their recent story about the Denmark show and Houston clearly does not sound like herself. SEE 'TODAY SHOW' VIDEO BELOW.

It is reported that she was so bad that a few hundred people walked out of the concert and when it ended only half of her audience remained. Those that left reportedly said "she talked too much" during the performance.

There were recent rumors of a drug relapse, and even an unexpected pregnancy (she officially divorced Bobby Brown last year), but no denials and confirmations have come from her camp just yet.

Houston has cited allergies and air condition problems as reasons for her missed shows and respiratory infections. It's unclear if she was sick during the Denmark show, but one thing is for sure, she's not living up to her fans expectations.
