Brandy Gets Emotional After Hearing Whitney Houston’s New Song [Video]

Brandy

Brandy weighed in on pop culture topics ranging from Lady Gaga’s suicide song “Princess Die” and Ke$ha’s lip tattoo during her live appearance on HLN’s “Showbiz Tonight.” The R&B singer, who guest stars on a new episode of Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva,” was also asked why she enlisted Chris Brown for her single “Put It Down.”

“I just feel like everybody goes through things in their own life and it’s not my place to judge or anybody’s place to judge,” said Brandy. “I just know that Chris is a fantastic artist and he’s always been supportive of me as an artist and I just wanted to work with him because he’s great at what he does.”

When hearing her late mentor Whitney Houston’s final song “Celebrate” for the first time, her emotions got the best of her. “That’s my first time hearing the snippet of the new song,” said Brandy as tears rolled down her face. “It’s tough. This woman has meant everything to me. To know that she’s no longer with us in the physical is very tough and it’s been tough for me and I’m pretty sure everyone who’s been touched by her music.”

But she pressed on, apologizing for her outburst and answering the questions like a pro.

    I thought Lady Gaga was a good singer but she sounded really bad in that song they showed. And thank god Brandy is back on Drop Dead Diva!

    Brandy looked great and she is such a genuine person. So humble and so sweet.I’m glad to see her doing her thing. I look forward to her performance this Sunday at the BET Awards.

    Much respect to Brandy for gracefully dealing with this unprofessional interview. He barely even asks any questions that deal with her own work or creative output. The questions are completely irrelevant. And he knew she was going to react to the Whitney Houston video, so he can miss me with that “I didn’t mean to take you off guard” nonsense.

    @Nate, yea exactly. He went from Brandy’s new single to Lady Gaga’s song about suicide, to Keshas inner lip tattoo. Like does he make all of his interviews answer irrelevant questions?

    @Ron’Do, You gotta be in a sad place in your life! The only difference in Brandy and Monica with Whitney is the fact that Monic was sign to the same Label as Whitney! Brandy was Whitney favourite little girl along with Monica! Cut that childish shyt out OMG these blogs!

    @Ron’Do, She Liked Monica way more?

    Thats why she fucked Monica brother?

    Asked Monica to play Cinderella?

    wanted Monica to be on the Waiting to exhale soundtrack?

    I mean come on, Brandy is way more connected to whitney then Monica, Musically and personally everyone knows that,so SIT!!

    She’s such a sweet person. I can’t wait for the BET awards performance and the new album. Brandy is so good for having to put up with the interviewer asking the most irrelevant questions.

    She looks amazing in this interview. She’s also so well spoken and I personally don’t think she uses Whitney’s death to get attention. People just keep asking her about it and sometimes it hits a sour note; especially considering her past and how close she was with her idol. I can’t wait for the new album!
