I would've loved to have know what was going through her mind at this exact moment. I love the candids of her when she's getting ready to do a show
LMAO! I was thinking DAYUM I look good LOL or something funny like I hope that check cleared LMAO
When I saw that picture the other day I thought "she looks like she's got the world on her shoulders" prolly happy she looks good but prolly more worried about sounding good. :/ Poor Whitney.
I really think her vocal decline was a postive feedback with the drugs. I don't think she was escaping *just* her marriage with Bobby but all of it. Her vocal problems, the press etc etc. I think her vocal problems gave her more hell than we really think. She always played tough but that facade can be read through.
I agree 100%. When you listen to some half-singers who lyp sinc their way through life, even they say that losing their "gift" would be unbearable and the worst thing that could happen to them, not being able to do what they love. Now, imagine how that must feel for someone like Whitney. Let's get it straight, she did not lose her gift, far from it. But she did lose some of her range, clarity, etc., she did lose some aspects of that heavenly voice, she struggled, had nights she just couldn't get that perfect note out and I can't imagine how that must have felt. How does Whitney Houston feel when she has to calculate when singing, when she has to tone it down because she's not sure she'll be able to sing something the way she wants? I believe this troubled her immensely. And it really hurts my heart to think about it, all the bad press during the tour, I can't even imagine how she must have felt.
There's something about this photo that really shows that insecurity, if you ask me. It's a very contained little smile, and I believe there were numerous worries behind it. I felt that the moment I laid my eyes on it.
this picture makes me sad because she looks worried , I guess..
and I also love the candid photo's people now put up on the net
Honestly, I thought the same thing. She looks like she's carrying the weight of the world and just wants to take a big breathe and let out a huge sigh.
I have ALWAYS had that feeling. I know that bothered her more than anything in her last years. There is NOWAY it didn't bother her to the pits of her soul. To go from doing something so effortlessly, to struggling with it. I never felt she lost her voice, it just became very inconsistent and unreliable. And I think that was the root of her problems towards the end. I KNOW the NBL tour took a MAJOR toll on her! She really struggled towards the end. She started off good and there were nights where she shocked herself, but towards the end it just wasn't working for her at all. It was really hard for me to watch that tour. There were moments that I wished she just allowed herself to be human and just showed some emotion about it. She had moments where her face showed complete frustration, but I loved the moments when one of those awesome notes did come flying out of nowhere and you can see the joy in her and how she would look up for a quick second to the Lord!
I was so ready for the day her voice would come out soaring again. I always felt that she would shock us with it one day...but...
