Exclusive: Ray J’s Take On The Whitney Houston Biopic

Published

Two years after her death, it’s still difficult for Ray J to speak about his good friend, Whitney Houston.

“That’s a real touchy subject,” Ray revealed when speaking to HipHollywood about the upcoming Lifetime biopic, Whitney. Ray says he hasn’t “really paid attention” to details surrounding the project, he’s hopeful it showcases the legendary singer “in the right light.”

During the last few years of her life, Houston and Ray were very close leading many to speculate that the two were an item. While the biopic won’t include Ray’s relationship with Nippy, Whitney, starring America’s Next Top Model alum YaYa (Decosta) Alafia, is expected to focus on her time turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown.

The Angela Bassett directed original movie is currently in production in Los Angeles and is set to premiere on Lifetime next year.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
