It’s Whitney, Bitch [Updated]

whitney_houstonWHITNEY!

The NY Post is reporting that according to Whitney Houston’s mentor, Clive Davis, her new album will be released in March of 2009.  (That’s soon!) Although I don’t find this date anywhere on her website, it does appear as though her internet home has been spruced-up for something.  I’ve heard about her staging a comeback for a while but this is the first I’ve heard of anything concrete.  Surely whatever comes out of the studio will be better than this live garbage (from ’07, I believe):

Unrelated: there’s an entire section on Ms. Houston’s Wiki page titled, “Substances.Awesome.

Trivia: “I Will Always Love You” was arguably the biggest song to come out of The Bodyguard but it was actually everyone’s second choice.  Originally, they wanted Whitney to sing a cover of Jimmy Ruffin’s “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted” [Download] but when they learned that that song was going to be included in Fried Green Tomatoes, Whitney requested something else and Kevin Costner suggested “I Will Always Love You” instead.

Update: Whitney’s website is now reporting that the March date circulating in the press is “erroneous.”  Sigh.
