Brandy

Too Emotional to Sing

Whitney Houston Songs

3/3/2012 7:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0303_brandy_video_tmz
Brandy took the stage in Los Angeles last night, and while some in the house were expecting her to perform a few Whitney Houston songs, decided against it  ... saying it would have made her "an emotional wreck."

Performing at The Factory in Los Angeles, Brandy made her first appearance since Houston's passing and dedicated the song "Right Here (Departed)" in her honor.

Brandy and Whitney starred together back in a 1997 TV remake of "Cinderella," and her brother Ray J dated Whitney on and off for several years.

On her way back home on December 30, 2006, Norwood was involved in a fatal car accident at the Los Angeles freeway.[62] The accident claimed the life of 38-year-old Awatef Aboudihaj—the driver of the Toyota that was struck by Norwood's Range Rover—who succumbed to her injuries at the L.A. Holy Cross Hospital the next day.[62] Norwood was neither arrested, nor charged with vehicular manslaughter, due to "insufficient evidence."[62] Unauthorized law enforcement[citation needed] reported that Norwood was driving her car at 65 mph and did not notice that cars in front of her had slowed considerably. Her vehicle then slammed into the back of Aboudihaj's, causing the Toyota to strike another vehicle before sliding sideways and impacting the center divider. As the Toyota came to a stop, it was hit by another vehicle.[63] A well-placed source in the California Highway Patrol, however, later reported that Aboudihaj actually struck the car in front of her and then slammed on her brakes before Brandy made contact. The sudden stop caused Norwood to hit Aboudihaj's car.[64] As confirmed, toxicology reports showed that Aboudihaj had "slight traces" of marijuana in her system at the time of the crash.

Like she didn't know that by NOT doing the Songs it would create publicity for her. This Crap is all staged. Next thing you know is That RJ won't be able to do any more Porn Videos because he Can't perform.

Nothing like cashing in and pretending it's all about sympathy. She must be taking lessons from the Jacksons.

Brandy is just a self entitled murderer whose brother is probably partly responsible for Whitney's death. Just a bunch of ghetto animals.

Brandy is performing at really small venues now, like clubs. What has happened to her career? She used to be huge.
