According to ITVNews the somewhat erratic former superstar and object of Osama’s lust Whitney Houston “is convinced that the 21-year-old [X-Factor TV talent show winner Leona] will be an international superstar and has even offered to mentor her.”
Sister, you need Whitney Houston as a mentor like you need Michael Jackson as a babysitter.
Leona Lewis is, to me, the whistle that only dogs here. Pretty girl, admirable voice, but she’s just not special and has no star quality at all. Let the backlash begin already, because I’m sick of hearing how she’s “the next Mariah”. We didn’t need the first one.
Ugh. According to the x-factor page, “she looked terrific and when it was good it was great.”
Er, yeah, right. Musicianship is the art of masking your performance screw-ups and rating appearance a poor third.
Oh yeah, this was x-factor, wasn’t it?
