E! Online caught up with Brandy and Monica while the two are out promoting their newest single “It All Belongs To Me”. While Brandy decline to talk about Whitney Houston, Monica was open to talk about her memories.
The Type of Person Whitney Was:
She was a jokester and I don’t think people really understood the fact that she was hilarious. The other day she came in, and heard our song, and she walks up to me and she goes, ‘You killin’ that run at the end.’ You know she kept sayin’ it, and she was like, ‘And you know I know you stole that from me, right? You killin’ that run you stole from me.” I’m like “I didn’t steal it, I borrowed it in a respectful manner” and she just thought that was funny because every night in my shows I do a segment for her and always have. That was something she enjoyed; watching the YouTube’s and watching me kind of emulate her.
Whitney Sharing Her Stage:
That’s something that she often did. She always liked for me to come sing because she told me, ‘I’ve never met anybody that I saw myself in,’ And the fact that I was signed and discovered singing ‘The Greatest Love of All,’ you know…it’s just been a rough week overall. But I recognize that she and I both, outside of music, had a lot in common. And our love for God and our belief in Christ was one of those things and it’s kept me strong and kept me fighting for what it is she loved, and that is family first, music and the rest is second.
Whitney Advice to Her:
Allow my love to lead me. That was something that she would always say. Be okay with who I was. There are a lot of heart broken people but we should just keep her daughter in our prayers and be thankful that God allowed us the time we did have with her.
Not only did Monica share her memories of the icon, but she also paid tribute her during a show in Connecticut.
