Whitney Houston

Flight Crew Threatens ...

Fasten Your Seatbelt, Or Else

Whitney Houston
isn't on drugs anymore ... she's just crazy -- and yesterday she almost got kicked off a Delta Airlines flight ... because she refused to buckle her seatbelt.

Multiple sources tell us ... Whitney boarded a flight in Atlanta Wednesday afternoon ... and when she settled into her seat, a crew member asked her to buckle up.

We're told Whitney refused and "got diva" on the crew member ... until another crew member came over and warned Houston that if she didn't buckle up, she would have to get off the plane.

Whitney eventually allowed one of the crew members to grab the buckle and fasten it for the singer -- and the plane was then cleared for takeoff.

Sources close to the singer tell us ... Whitney "overreacted a little bit after missing an earlier flight but she's still 100% sober and was on the way to Detroit for her first day of shooting a new movie."

It's not right, but it's OK ...

She's back on the sauce. Keep watching. She squandered what was arguably one of the most promising singing career for a stint with the pimp and the pipe. She is a shadow of her former self. Drugs do that.

I lost respect for Houston a few years ago when she had a hit with her cover of a song which had been written and made a hit previously by Dolly Parton: "I Will Always Love You." Dolly happened to be in NY where Whitney was appearing live at a theatre for several weeks. She called Whitney and offered to come to the theatre and do a duet of the song. This is often done by singers and both get good publicity from the event. Notice all the record albums of duets (the latest is Tony Bennett and several singers). Whitney totally "dissed" Dolly. She implied that Dolly was a has been who was just trying to horn on Whitney's publicity, etc. Dolly was good about it and played it down.
If Whitney didn't want to do the duet she could have just said "Thanks, but maybe some other time" or something like that. Whatever you think of Dolly, she did not deserve to be "dissed" like that.

Oh heck man. She'll never finish the movie. (Laughing). Her brains are fried so bad she is totally out of it. She still wants to be a Diva but has lost all touch with reality due to her drug abuse.

This spoiled brat,"has been" singer is just looking for publicity. Perhaps she thinks people will drag her albums out of their basementsaa and play them again.....not

Should've booted the crackhead off the plane and inconvinence everyone on the COMMERCIAL airline so next time she'll hop on her own or someone else's private jet.

Who does she think she is? Certainly not a star of any sort. She hasn't performed in ages and no matter what amount of makeup she uses, she still looks stoned. That was rude of her to try to play superstar and delay many people who were traveling with her, what a b----!

If these people can't behave like human beings, why don't they buy their own plane?? Oh, that's right, she isn't a star anymore after flushing her career down the toliet. Yo, Whitney, grow the hell up, sober up and shut up. You're a horrible example for your kid.

She can go back and try acting because she can NOT sing anymore. Don't believe me go to youtube. She use to be the most powerful singer on the planet. Drugs (cocaine) has ruined her voice.
