Houston Cleans Up After Secret Trip To Los Angeles

Troubled soul star WHITNEY HOUSTON has turned her back on drugs and is now aiming to literally clean up her messy life, according to the singer's best friend CHERELLE. The former R+B star has revealed she and Houston recently took up an invitation from the diva's friends DENZEL WASHINGTON and MEL GIBSON to hide out in Los Angeles, visiting churches in disguise. Cherelle tells urban magazine Sister 2 Sister the trip afforded Houston the chance to go "straight detox" after confessing she had drug abuse problems, and the quality time allowed her longtime friend to talk some sense into her. Cherelle admits Houston was upset by recent tabloid claims about her drug habit made by sister-in-law TINA BROWN, that were accompanied by photographs of the singer's reported squalid drug den. Houston's pal claims some of the allegations Brown made were true, but the picture was nothing more than a shot of a messy bathroom. Cherelle says, "I told Nippy (Houston's nickname), I was being honest with her: 'Some of the things (Tina) did say in there (article) were true - not true in a drug form, but yes, you are sloppy! Yes, you are messy - not only in the bathroom, but period.'" Cherelle goes on to explain that Houston's inability to keep a tidy home comes from years of having aides to fetch and carry everything for her. She adds, "She was just 18-years-old when she had a hit record... It's out of habit, her dropping stuff down. Now I'm like, 'You're 43-years-old, n**ger. Pick that up! I'm not picking up behind you.'"

Until she gets rid of that ignorant, down low ape she runs with, things will never change. Brown is a total scumbag, and the perfect example of what people perceive as the criminal element in music.Until she is rid of Brown, nothing will change.news://alt.music.michael-jacksonhttp://groups.google.com/group/alt.music.michael-jackson?hl=enhttp://www.childrenhatemj.nethttp://www.fluttergirl.com/michaeljackson/http://www.imagedump.com/index.cgi?pick=get&tp=426184

Whitney,You are going to be just fine. Everyone goes thru trials, but you are a C.O.G.(Child of God)this to shall pass. You are my faaaaaaaaaaavorite singer in the world. I tell people you are my God mother, I even named my car after you. When I found out you were sick, I cried as if I actually knew you personally. My family and friends know not to say anything negative about you around me, I get very defensive. You are human and you have problems just like us all. The only difference you are well known and your pockets are fa$$er. I know you are going to come back and show these upcoming artist how its really done. Don't give up! Inspite of the negative articles written or how the media tries to degrade your image, you are still #1 and you have a gift from God that no one can match! Keep praying and believing in God. With God, your close friends, family and fans "WE" will get you thru this. He still reigns, he is not done with you yet. I know in my heart we have not heard the last of "NIPPY"!

Just another example of why blacks shouldn't have too much money. They have no morals, and will trash the money on drugs, booze and sex.
