Wow! Whitney Houston kinda lost her shit. I wasn't sure she would ever get it back together. I have a special spot for women and gay men (like Mariah Carey and Bil Browning) who come undone and then rise from the ashes like a phoenix.

It's Not Right but It's Okay coverMy mom loved and continues to play old school 80's Whitney. There was no limit to how many times her and I could dance around our living room to "I want to dance." The first drag queen I dated captured my heart thanks to a moving rendition of "It's not right, but it's okay." He had me at "take care of my own babies." I played that song and that album for years as I was getting ready to go gay clubbing.

In anticipation of her first post-Bobby album, the single "Like I Never Left" has been leaked to the internet and is available after the jump. By the way, it features Akon.

I am convinced. If this song is indicative of the forthcoming album, I think she may be okay.

What do you think? Like it? Love it? Think it could be better? Do you think it will be a hit?

I actually really like it, but then Whitney could sing the phone book and I'd listen. I've always had a soft spot for her and her craziness.

I hope she really gets it together and stages a big comeback.

The video is no longer available. :(

Bummer. I wanted to hear that. I'm a rocker, but I like Whitney. Hope she still has that great voice.
