Whitney Houston’s mother is speaking out for the first time since her daughter’s death in February. Cissy Houston shared her love, grief, and anger with Newark’s My9 TV at New Hope Baptist Church, the same place where her daughter’s funeral was held just weeks earlier.
“I’m OK. I have my moments. I’m not there yet,” said the grieving mother. “I don’t think I’m any more courageous than anyone else. I haven’t gotten angry yet. I don’t like getting angry.”
The 78-year-old singer doesn’t blame herself or anyone for the demons Whitney battled in life. “I know I did the best I could. I don’t blame myself, I know I did the best I could for everything.”
Following the various snippets that have already surfaced, Monica’s New Life is now streaming online in full!

We don’t yet have the backstory — pun very much intended — but Monday afternoon (April 2), Chris Brown tweeted an Instragram photo of five bare-bottomed ladies proudly displaying the words “Breezy #1″ across their cheeks. The hashtag, naturally enough, is #IAMKING.
The image raises many questions. Does Brown’s post amount to harmless bragging, or is this yet another example of the controversial singer and convicted abuser degrading women? Granted, these female superfans willingly dropped trou to show their fondness for the R&B star, but did they figure he’d post the NSFW snap for all 9,295,733 of his followers to see?
Also, who did the writing? Was it Brown himself? The penmanship is quite impressive, given the curved surfaces and amount of giddy dumb-girl jumping that undoubtedly accompanied the inking. Hats off to the person with the Sharpie. Pants back on, everyone else.
