"She was my absolute favorite singer growing up, and I used to be made fun of for that. In 1987, an 11-year-old boy was supposed to have pictures of cars or baseball players on his bedroom wall...not a huge poster of Whitney Houston.
Last summer while I was writing songs for my next record, I kept hearing about all these young boys who were getting pushed around, like I had been, for liking things 'boys weren't supposed to like,' but I was also hearing that some of those boys decided life wasn't worth living anymore.
I wanted to write a song to tell those kids about the woman who helped me through my tough time as a fruity little dude... about the woman who sang me through those crap junior high school years...a song about the music that made me feel happier, fuller, better. And, as I wrote it, I dreamt of getting to play it for her one day.
I never in a million years thought we would get the news we got yesterday. I just can't believe it. It's so heartbreakingly tragic that someone so iconic and inspiring to so many, was also so tortured.
We wrote and recorded this song last year to honor Whitney. I hope now it can serve as my own tribute to her memory."
Are you ready??? Stay tuned.. And don’t respond with questions! Just be patient!!
She added a similar post on Facebook, and tagged it #ForeverWhitney, #Music
If she wants me to be ready, don't ask me to be patient.
They have been asking us to be patient for months .
That post was not necessary, brought nothing substantial and this "don't respond with questions!" part is funny as hell, as it was obvious people would be asking questions after reading such enigmatic post.
