Her life has long been the subject of gossip and rumours—about her rocky marriage to Bobby Brown, her alleged drug abuse and massive weight loss—in the tabloid press. But now the troubled diva is battling back. “Whatchulookinat,” the first single from her new album, takes a swipe at the media. “You’re telling lies on me,” she sings over a mid-tempo groove, “trying to dirty up Whitney’s name.” It’s a limp counter-attack. And news that she’s recorded a version of the Debby Boone ballad “You Light Up My Life” doesn’t bode any better. Sad, really.
