Houston Has A Problem

by | 29th, March 2006

‘ANOTHER day dawns – and we are shocked and appalled by yet another tale of celebrity drug taking. “WHITNEY ON CRACK,” says the Sun’s front page. And there are “shocking pictures”.

Do you read me, Houston. Come in Houston

The paper says that the model turned singer is “destroying herself with crack cocaine”. The 42-year-old is living in a world of “squalor” and “degradation”.

Inside the paper, over a double-page spread, readers get to see inside Whitney’s bathroom. They see a spoon covered in cocaine (“SORDID”) and a pot full of rubbish, said to include crack-smoking paraphernalia. “PITIFUL,” says the Sun.

It’s all a far cry from the days when Whitney’s demands were just that she wanted danced with somebody. Today Whitney is “AT HER WHIT’S END”.

For those of you who have not seen Whitney for a while, and still have in your mind’s eye an image of an almond-eyed beauty with flawless coffee-toned skin and legs that go all the way to the top of her yellow ra-ra skirt, the Sun says her beauty has been “devastated” by drugs. And she smells. The Sun says Whitney has no truck with “personal hygiene”.

Note the dark circles beneath her listless eyes. Focus on the “deranged” look on her face. Pay special attention to the askew fright wig. Stare. And stare again.

It’s not cruel to stare. It’s just what Whitney’s sister-in-law Tina, sibling to Bobby Brown, and herself a former drug addict, wants us to do. It was she who took the shots of Whitney’s bathroom, shots that now appear in the Press.

Helpfully, Tina says Whitney is paranoid. The singer sees demons. She once made a hole in a bathroom wall to look through. Says Tina: “She breaks everything – mirrors, phones, cabinets, appliances.”

Tina also thinks it is important we know that Whitney has wet herself and put on a baby’s nappy.

And we would like to thank Tina for spouting so much tough love. In telling the world what a slovenly loser her sister-in-law is, she has surely set Whitney on the path to recovery…’
