Look At Whitney Houston Looking To You

Here are some photos of Whitney Houston and various folks (above, David Foster, Diane Warren and Clive Davis, and below, Halle Berry and Stevie Wonder) at last week's L.A. listening party for her upcoming album I Look To You.

Unless you've been living under a rock, then you know I Look To You was bumped up from its original September 1 release date to August 31—incidentally, the same cutoff date for Grammy nominee consideration (wink, wink).

Whitney's (below with Jane Fonda) R. Kelly-produced title track from the album—hardly the best from I Look To You, in my opinion—is also being being offered as a free download from her official website.

I guess "I Look To You" has been named as the official first single. So why offer it for free? At any rate, you can check out my review of the the album and the L.A. listening event here.

Clive, babe—in case you or one of your 17 boy assistants is reading—please go with "Nothing But Love" or "Like I Never Left" as the next single!

    Such a daring, new group of writera and producers there. I wonder if Clive's staff thinks, "Could you please retire?" or if they love him?

    What the hell is Halle Berry wearing? A shift?

    Exciting! Well I think they are pretty certain that the album will sell, thus they don't need the reassurance of singles sales in giving it away for free. Besides, we're all pretty certain there will be an accompanying tour. That's where they'll make the money. I'm sure "I Look To You" will have some stellar remixes!

    I predict she won't be able to hold it together, the album and songz will flop, her ruined voice will "crack" and this will all turn out to be a glittery, embarrassing tragedy.

    You know, like her life.

    Have to agree with Creepy Little Sneaky. The single is beyond dismal - no hook, lazy vocals. If her voice was as glorious as it once was this would not have been released first. There will be no tour that is a promise - she is running on fumes.

    d'luv, i swear it's you. YOu always manage to bring out those hardcore fans who are insanely annoyed when anyone dares to question anything their chosen idol might be doing wrong. Whatever it is keep it up :)

    PS "get off her dick"?! Is there something I don't know!

    Remember when Leona Lewisgate, when D'Luv (accurately) predicted that post "Bleeding Love," she couldn't get arrested in the U.S., and the haterz (Hil Duff voice) flocked en masse to The 'Rig to spin tales of how Leona would be the greatest success story in world history?

    Whither La Lewis flopz, the withered, croaking broomstick-with-a-wig known as Whitney shall follow!

    I'm shocked that a place as family-oriented and classy as this could bring about division in music fans.

    [Rubs hands together, thinks It's all going according to my evil plan!]

    I would LOVE a Whitney comeback but the first single is not cutting it. She needed to blow the roof off radio with one of her trademark big ballads or a dance track and that song is neither.
