Whitney Houston's brother introduced her to drugs

Jan 29 2013, 11:25am CST | by

Whitney Houston's brother has revealed he introduced her to drugs.

Michael Houston has admitted he started experimenting with cocaine and crack cocaine in the 80s and his younger sister followed his lead.

During an intense appearance on 'Oprah's Next Chapter' with his mother Cissy, Michael was quizzed by Oprah Winfrey about his and Whitney's substance abuse.

Quoting a passage from Cissy's tell-all book 'Remembering Whitney', Oprah enquired: "Your mother writes in her book that you were doing drugs with your sister. You mother writes, 'I was shocked and confused, I didn't understand it then and I still don't.' How does it feel to hear your mother say that?"

Michael replied: "It's painful, I feel responsible for it, I let it go so far. We were together most of the time, with her following behind me. I taught her to drive, we played together, everything you do together growing up. And then when you get into drugs you do that together to and it just got of hand, you know? This drug (cocaine) is rough."

Although Michael didn't excuse his actions he did claim cocaine was a fashionable thing to do in the 80s when it came into prominence in the US.

He said: "You gotta understand at the time ... the 80s ... it was acceptable."

It has long been believed that Whitney's ex-husband Bobby Brown played a big part in her downward spiral into drug addiction, but Cissy's claims and Michael's admission suggest she had tried drugs before meeting Bobby in 1989.

The 'I Will Always Love You' hitmaker died in February 2012 as a result of accidental drowning and the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use".

Whitney had an amount of cocaine in her system at the time of her passing.

11 Million Adele Fans Can't Be Wrong

Oct 4 2014 9:16pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

In the sales tracking week that ends Sunday night, Adele's 21 will top the 11 million mark in U.S. sales. That news is at once not really surprising (the album has been a blockbuster since it was released in 2011) and utterly astounding (in an era when albums are hard-pressed to sell 2 or 3 million copies, how on earth has an album gotten to 11 million?)There was little reason to think that 21 would become a blockbuster when it was released in February 2011. Adele’s previous album, 19 ...

Cute or Ew: Chanel’s Feminist Fashion Show

Sep 30 2014 4:49pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

Once upon a time, a runway show was all about the clothes: Models strutted down a catwalk, fashion editors took notes, and 15 minutes later everyone was out the door. Now, however, a fashion show is a complete spectacle with themes, props, pyrotechnics, world-famous DJs, massive stagings, and of course, as many big name celebrities hogging up the seats as possible. Case in point: the Chanel presentation at Paris Fashion Week. The show featured Gisele, Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevin ...

Whoa, Lady Gaga Got Bearable!

Sep 29 2014 5:30pm CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

Lady Gaga, for all her obnoxiousness, is a seriously talented lady. She has such a beautiful voice, and it's been a shame that she's been using it all these years to sing songs like "Poker Face" and "Applause." It's so lovely that she took the time to make Cheek to Cheek, her new jazz album with Tony Bennett, and even if she did do it to revamp her image after her last album didn't do as well as expected ...
