Brandy’s mother, Sonja Norwood, has a lot on her mind this morning — and she’s airing it all out on social media.

On Monday afternoon, Brandy shared a sweet message about her admiration for the late Whitney Houston. Brandy, who was very close with Houston, suggested via Instagram that “everybody wanted what we had/have and I am blessed enough to have been your friend, #FairyGodDaughter and make history with you as my #FairyGodMother.”

The singer went on to call the legendary singer “my angel” before writing, “I wish that you were here in the physical to witness so much of my courage that you stayed on me about– but I know you are watching and I know what you expect me to do. Our bond is unmatched.”

The message was liked by thousands of Brandy’s social media followers, but there is one mega-fan who took the post and turned into a shade.

Sonja responded to the post in the comment section of a video shared by Brandy of her singing at the Soul Train Awards. The message read: “No, Whitney wasn’t everyone’s Godmother, I was there and I know.”


Instantly, folks began to speculate that Sonja was firing shots at Monica Brown, whom also suggested Houston was her fairy godmother in OWN’s recent episode of Where Are They Now.

You also might remember, Brandy and Monica have had years of drama, and it looks like that hasn’t changed.

Brandy, by the way, was not the only Norwood sibling to have a close relationship with the late singer. Her brother, Ray J, who recently married Princess Love, had an on-again, off-again romantic relationship with Houston before her untimely passing on February 11, 2012.

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.
