Bobby Brown is ready to put them paws on Kanye West for exploiting Whitney Houston’s drug den/bathroom picture on Pusha T’s album cover. Bobby has taken time for his current RBRM tour to finally speak on Kayne West buying this photo:
Bobby said to Rolling Stone Magazine: Why would he post that on his album cover? That’s really disgusting that he would do that.” That’s in really bad taste. Something should happen to Kanye. He’s already crazy. I knew that when I first met him. Now he’s pushing the bar a little bit,” the former New Edition singer said, adding, “He needs somebody to slap him up or something. And I’m just the person to do it.”
Bobby and Whitney were married from 1992 to 2007. Whitney was found dead in the bathroom of her Beverly Hilton Hotel room in 2012 aged 48.
The G.O.O.D. Music boss Mr. West, dropped $85,000 for licensing rights to an image for the Daytona cover but Pusha T had said the original cover was going to be a completely different image. However, West, an executive producer on the album, made a last minute decision to change the artwork to the picture of Houston’s bathroom. West also agreed to take care of the $85,000 licensing fee for the photo. Pusha-T said West told him, “this is what people need to see to go along with that music.” Rolling Stone quotes.
BUT wait Bobby….why you not slapping your SISTER Tina who took the picture originally sold it to the tabloids?!?!
Yup…The photo was taken by Whitney’s sister in law, Bobby’s sister and sold to The National Enquire but Bobby didn’t mention NOT ONE WORD about THAT part…
In 2006, the National Enquirer featured the photo showing Houston’s bathroom filled with drug-covered spoons and drug paraphernalia on its cover, which had been taken secretly by Tina Brown in 2006 as the late singer struggled with drug addiction. Why did Tina betray Whitney like that? Well one reason might be according to the National Enquire story they quoted Tina Brown: “I did crack with Whitney,” a recovering addict herself.
It is understood West paid to license the photograph but it is not clear if he paid the Enquirer or Bobby Brown’s sister, Tina Brown.
I never thought I’d ever be taking Kenye’s side on anything, but Bobby you REALLY need to shut up and sit down bruh on this one. Check your sister and check yourself:
On Tuesday, the Houston estate issued a statement saying it was “extremely disappointed in Kanye’s choice” for the album artwork. “Even in Whitney’s death, we see that no one is exempt from the harsh realities of the world,” Houston’s estate added.
