After the bitch-slap of Whitney Houston craziness from earlier this week, it seems only fair that we should hear from her former other half, King of R&B Bobby Brown. And hear from him we have! Bobby’s still yapping about Osama Bin Laden‘s supposed jealousy and wish to kill him, despite the fact that the story’s been circulating for over a year and that it refers to events that took place 11 years ago. Whatever. Attention is attention even if it’s from a terrorist. Eleven years ago.
“I figure if Bin Laden wants me, and everybody is looking for him, it probably won’t happen. But if he wants to try and find me for something so stupid, he can do what he wants. I have to leave it in the hands of my higher power. Come on, if anybody [else was] threatened by Al Qaeda, they’d take it seriously.“
Isn’t it comforting to know that even if they aren’t together, Whitney and Bobby’s craziness is still potent, almost complementary? Even though we know how very far apart they are, it helps to think they might be wishing on the same bright star. It’s like that ’80s animated film An American Tale, except with more hootin’ and hollerin’ and drugs instead of mice.
