Whitney Houston

ROCKIN' OUT

to Madonna's Halftime Show

Just five days before her death, Whitney Houston was GETTIN' DOWN to Madonna's Super Bowl halftime show ... singing and dancing to the music like her old self ... and TMZ has the footage.

It all went down Feb. 5 at a bar inside the Regent Beverly Wilshire hotel ... where Whitney watched the entire game with close family and friends. For the record, we're told she didn't have one drink.

But she did let loose ... because when Madge busted out Vogue ... a super-excited Whitney sang along and even busted out some of the trademark Vogue dance moves.

Sources close to the actress tell us ... Whitney RAVED about  the performance and then reminisced about the days when she would battle Madonna on the music charts.

At least someone was a fan of the show ...

Truth    

HER ALLEGED BODYGUARD "UNCLE RAY" OR RAY WATSON. HE SPOKE AT THE HOME GOING LAST SATURDAY. I FOUND IT PERTURBED AND STRANGE THAT HIS "EXPRESSIONS" AT THE HOME GOING SERVICE WAS A TIMELINE LEADING TO HER DEATH. JUST SEEMED VERY STRANGE LIKE HE WAS TELLING EVERYONE HIS ALIBI... HE MENTIONS THE GOSPEL MUSIC STOPPING BUT HE HESITATED TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE WASHROOM CUZ WHITNEY MIGHT YELL AT HIM... WELL, ISNT THAT WHAT A BODYGUARD IS SUPPOSED TO DO - TO NOTICE WHEN SOMETHING IS OUT OF THE ORDINARY WITH THE CLIENT??? HE F*CKED THAT TASK - HIS CLIENT DIED!! WHY WOULD SHE STOP THE GOSPEL MUSIC IF SHE WAS TAKING A BATH?? DONT MOST PEEPS PLAY MUSIC WHILST THEY ARE SOAKING IN THE BATH - NOT TURN IT OFF... I FOUND THAT STRANGE. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A SIGNAL FOR MOST BODYGUARDS TO RECOGNIZE SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED AND RUSH IN THE BATHROOM TO SEE IF SHE WAS OK BUT HE DIDNT... SMH, LAME. #TRUTH!!

Anybody else notice Whitney's the only one dancing? Besides the fact that the show sucked, she's surrounded by handlers. No friends and no family. Lonely life with all the money in the world. (You were voguing too; don't lie)

Fuuny, all this about Whitney dancing. As much as I loved her singing was truly disappointed when I saw her in concert in Toronto a million years ago - no stage presence what so ever, no dance moves. I was completely shocked & surprised. Now, Tina Turner - that lady could move! RIP Whitney.

I am glad whitney had a good time, before she died. Alot of people die without ever doing anything in their lives. She got to travel and entertain millions of people. She gave herself to her fans musically. Alot of people die in the bathroom, bathtub, toilet and other places. Death comes, wherever you are. You can't pick and choose, when or where you die. I hope her toxicology are clean, then you haters can stop calling her a druggie or crackhead. She may have died of natural causes. Let the woman rest in peace.

Let's not try to reinvent history—Madonna's halftime show got rave reviews. People loved it. Not everyone, but it wasn't "mixed reviews" or something that "at least someone loved," it was a hit. Oh, brother for trying to claim otherwise.

Fortunately, most of the 114 million people who watched Madonna's performance at the Superbowl disagree with TMZ's assessment of her performance (oh and the haters too, but they don't count). Best performance at the superbowl EVER and the most watched EVER. Whitney had good taste!!
