A sad and generally thoughtful account of the bright promise and tragic decline of pop goddess Whitney Houston, and the eerily similar fate of her daughter Bobbi Kristina.
Gossipy but not prurient, author Halperin is refreshingly direct in his examination of Houston's "longtime companion" relationship with Robyn Crawford and the correlation between their breakup--forced primarily by the homophobia of Whitney's parents, church, fans and the demands of the music industry--and Houston's emotional and physical disintegration culminating in her 2012 death by drowning.
As for daughter Bobbi Brown--sadly, she too was destined for self-destruction given the erratic, drug and alcohol-fueled irresponsibility of her parents.

hastily thrown together. The topic is very interesting but the author was unable to interview any close friends/relatives. A lot of the content is based on twitter tweets, clips from TV shows, etc. It was pointless for him to try to join scientology or attend narcotics anonymous meetings or discuss his writings about michael jackson.
