也不知道是哪來的馬路消息,說惠妮新簽了約!
然後新約的簽約金額高的嚇人,還氣壞一票天后級人物,
結果這烏龍新聞還被中國時報當做"新聞"來發!
中國時報錯誤引用請見此:天后降臨!

Whitney Houston's Comeback Continues
Thursday, September 27, 2007

Once more, from Wednesday, just in case anyone misunderstood. Contrary to tabloid reports, Whitney Houston does not have a new contract with Arista Records/Sony BMG. She always had a contract.

In 2001, L.A. Reid handed her a check for $20 million. She spent it. Her recordings didn’t earn out. So now, still under contract, she’s making a new album. She’s in New York working on what she started in Los Angeles a few months ago. All systems are go.

Arista, meanwhile, has rejiggered her financial arrangements. They did not give her $10 million, as reported elsewhere. But sources at the company tell me that Houston has been compensated recently, they’re looking out for her, and making sure she’s happy and in good shape. How will it all turn out? Your guess is as good as mine.

◎大概是講說惠妮的新專輯都是在紐約運作,然而唱…

Is Whitney Houston Back?
Posted Sep 25th 2007 12:36PM by TMZ Staff

Whitney Houston met with Clive Davis at Nobu in New York yesterday and looked good?!

The R&B diva was looking more "Waiting to Exhale" and a less the hot mess as she exited the restaurant with the music titan. TMZ asked when her new album was coming out, and the refreshed looking Houston responded, "We're working on it!" Hell to the yes! Now that she is divorced from Bobby Brown, completed a stay in rehab-and signed a $100 million dollar deal in September with Arista Records -the songstress is about to show Britney how a comeback is done!

真是一個令人興奮的好消息!

天后降臨!

"The Merv Griffin Show",天后首次降臨人間!

1983年,Clive老爹帶著Whitney一起跑通告,在這個當年頗具指標性的脫口秀節目"The Merv Griffin Show"中,Whitney的演唱令傳媒驚艷,天后就此誕生!

在節目中,Whitney演唱了Diana Ross阿姑在1978年的歌舞片The Wiz中的一曲"Home",充分展現獅后風範,大家一起來回顧一下吧!
Whitney Houston- Home


註:節目主持人Merv Griffin在今年8月12日辭世,享年82歲。

聽完惠媽的演唱,再來聽一下Diana Ross阿姑的原唱版...

Diana Ross - Home (The Wiz)


我的結論是,薑並不是老的辣,阿姑並沒有唱的比較好咧!
沒有冒犯之意,希望Diana Ross阿姑的歌迷不要生氣咧...

最近都沒啥Whitney的消息,
今天中國時報一個很不認真的記者,把2002年Whitney簽新約的消息當成"新"聞來發,還真是無言咧!
詳見下圖:


And I am telling you,I'm not going....

今天聽了原版,超暴力到心痛的!

先來看(聽)一下,這首歌有多悲...
And I am telling you,I'm not going....

(Lyrics by TOM EYEN/Music by HENRY KRIEGER)
From the Musical "Dreamgirls"

And I am telling you
I'm not going.
You're the best man I'll ever know.
There's no way I can ever go,
No, no, no, no way,
No, no, no, no way I'm livin' without you.
I'm not livin' without you.
I don't want to be free.
I'm stayin',
I'm stayin',
And you, and you, you're gonna love me.
Ooh, you're gonna love me.

And I am telling you
I'm not going,
Even though the rough times are showing.
There's just no way,
There's no way.
We're part of the same place.
We're part of the same time.
We both share the same blood.
We both have the same mind.
And time and time we have so much to share,
No, no, no,
No, no, no,
I'm not wakin' up tomorrow mornin'
And findin' that there's nobody there.
Darling, the…

Why Does It Hurt So Bad....

Why Does It Hurt So Bad,
Why do I feel so sad,
Thought I was over you,
But I keep crying...
心痛或心碎了,
那惱人情緒,要該如何宣洩...

來聽...
Whitney Houston-Why Does It Hurt So Bad

下面這場現場演出,應該算惠媽近幾年較具代表性的Live!

1996 MTV Movie Awards Live


Lyrics
Why does it hurt so bad
Why do I feel so sad
Thought I was over you
But I keep crying
When I don't love you
So why does it hurt so bad
I thought I had let you go
So why does it hurt me so
I gotta get you outta my head
It hurts so bad
Oh it hurts so bad baby

My life's been better
Since the day I left you boy
I must admit life's been kind to me
I went and did the things I said I would boy
I found someone who loves me for me
Haven't had much drama since the day that we split boy
My heart's never been more at ease
And when I think of all the things you put me through
Leaving you has been the best thing for me

So why does it hurt so bad
Why do I feel so sad
I thought I was over you
But I keep crying
When I don't love you
So why does it hurt so bad
Baby I thought I had let you go
So…

Shino加油!

當初那個單純只是愛唱歌的女孩,笑容已經不復見...
現在臉上及眼神中,有的只是憂鬱和不安...
酒駕的案子,求刑一年兩個月。
再多的後悔及愧對,喚不回那已造成的傷害!

應該很多我的朋友,都不能理解,為何我那麼排斥喝酒這件事!明明我就不是一個酒量差的人,但不管心情多差,多麼HIGH,對於喝酒,我總是敬謝不敏。

原因無他,我的父親曾是酒駕的肇事者,一個婦人的生命,在那次事故中被奪走,我家也因那件事故,付出了慘痛代價,一直到現在,那代價還持續著,負債沒減輕過,只有增加的份。

我一直無法理解所謂的應酬文化,也無法理解"一醉解千愁"有何道理,酒醒之後,該面對的問題依舊在,在被麻醉的片刻,憂愁或許會被遺忘,但該面對的一切,依舊在清醒的那刻,重現眼前。那又何必多此一舉,自誤然後誤人,一個逞強,會讓多少人心碎,會造成多少不可挽回的東西消失,沒有人有答案。

適量的道理,似乎在台灣社會是行不通的,為了表示盡興,一定要喝到去狂吐才算盡興,這是啥歪理,我真的不懂。

林曉培除了金錢的賠償,將來要面對的牢獄之災亦在所難免,但終身伴隨的良心譴責,想必才是她此生最大的功課。

Shino加油!
妳的歌聲相當程度的伴隨某些人的成長,也撫慰了某些人的心靈,期盼妳記取教訓,重新再站起來!

文末來首Shino第三張專輯中的單曲交叉線

交叉線
作詞:陳衍利 作曲:陳美威 編曲:張翰群

如果不再有任何交集 愛情只是沉溺
I Love You Baby 我不要你 困在我這裡
你勉強給我一個微笑 不敢看我眼睛
別說是難題 你真的不必這樣心虛

對自由貪戀 是你淪陷 眼看你上了癮 一切都來不及
才明白愛已熄滅剩下了灰 那又何必 又何必眷戀

我們只是交叉線 偶然 相遇 交會在命運的點
釋放過激情火燄在一瞬間 那一眼 太衝動看成永遠
我們只是交叉線 雖然 相遇 交會 卻慢慢走遠
既然是各自選擇世界兩邊
無所謂 無所謂 無所謂

Whitney attends Usher's wedding

September 2, 2007
R&B crooner Usher finally celebrated his marriage to pregnant bride Tameka Foster yesterday, with a celebrity-packed party at a luxury country resort near Atlanta.

The pair exchanged vows in front of 200 guests including Oprah Winfrey, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey, according to People magazine.

The late-afternoon ceremony was held inside a marble-arched ballroom on the grounds of the enormous 16th-century-style Chateau Elan Winery and Resort, an hour outside Atlanta.
