The First ‘Bobby Brown Story’ Teaser Drops + Folks Are Pissed At Kanye For Paying $85K To Use Whitney Houston’s Drug Bathroom Photo
"The Bobby Brown Story" just got its first teaser treatment. And they’re going there. Check it inside, plus the Whitney Houston pic that has everybody mad at Kanye West (again).
Woody McClain s reprising his role as the King of R&B, Bobby Brown, in the upcoming "Bobby Brown Story." He killed that ish in The New Edition Story, so it’s only right BET tapped him again for the solo project about Bobby’s life.
Yup, they’re showing all the drug and alcohol problems, and more based on the recent still released from the biopic.
Gabrielle Dennis is playing the late Whitney Houston, and Bobby himself was on set with Woody to make sure everything was on point as possible.
Are you ready for R&B’s original bad boy’s story? We for damn sure are. It premieres this September on BET.
Speaking of Bobby and Whitney, Pusha T’s brand new album that just dropped at midnight has everybody hating Kanye all over again.
Daytona is a fire project, and everybody’s ranting and raving about it. But what has plenty of people pissed is the cover art, and apparently it was all Ye’s idea.
Kanye executive produced Pusha’s album, and when the veteran rapper told Angie Martinez in a recent interview that his original album art was scrapped by ‘Ye just days before this release.
“He changed my artwork last night at 1 a.m. He wasn’t feeling it,” he revealed.
The current one ‘Ye put in place ruffled some fans’ feathers.
I finally got my album art… #DAYTONA 5/25
The cover art is a pic of Whitney Houston’s drug infested bathroom, allegedly taken without her knowledge or consent in 2006.
Kanye reportedly paid $ 85K to the copyright holder to license it for Pusha’s cover, despite Whitney supposedly trying hard before her death to halt the publication of the photos in the National Enquirer.
Folks are saying it’s exploitative, especially since Kanye himself has admitted to being addicted to opiods.
The point was attention. A last minute Kanye West decision isn’t something I’m seeking much substance in.

It’s not genius it reeks hey I need a gimmick. If you got talent you wouldn’t create controversy. Is Kris Kardashian managing Pusha T because this is her type of calling card?

There are literally 85,000 better things he could have done with that money. Not that I listen to Pusha T’s music, but if I did, I’d stop. Kanye West Paid $ 85,000 to Use Photo of Whitney Houston’s Drug-Covered Bathroom on Pusha T Album: Report https://t.co/NYwv1Vf2Ya via @TheRoot

See black people, if we taking a stand against Kanye, you gotta follow through. Now y’all running to buy Pusha T’s album, produced by who? Kanye West. Not to mention the disrespect of Whitney Houston on that album cover. I guess that was all fake outrage from y’all, per usual.

Kanye West is threatened by powerful successful women. He always targets them in his work. Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Whitney Houston.

Others say folks are overreacting, and says Pusha himself raps about cocaine use often.
Well, at least Diddy is here for the album, for the music. And folks everywhere are giving it rave reviews:
A letter from one of my idols… @diddy (peep the stationary) #DAYTONA
Kanye’s pretty proud of himself too. As expected:
Daytona is the first project out of Wyoming. I’m really proud of what we put together. We’ve spent a year and a half digging for samples and writing. I really appreciate the overwhelmingly positive response that we’ve been receiving.
