Over 5 years ago, we mourned the loss of inarguably the greatest singer of our time. Throughout her life, and even posthumously, there has been speculation, tabloids and many documentaries about Whitney Houston’s successes and struggles.
Now Showtime is releasing yet another piece of filth which is supposed to be a behind-the-scenes look at the tormented icon’s past. It allegedly includes personal videos as well as interviews detailing many things including her drug use and sexuality.
At what point will Whitney’s legacy stop being tarnished? Fame claimed her and her daughter’s lives. When will they both get to finally rest in peace?
“Can I Be Me” premieres August 25th at 9PM ET.
Directors Nick Broomfield and Rudi Dolezal weave never before seen video, candid interviews and behind the scenes performance footage into a raw and uncensored portrait of Whitney Houston, who died suddenly at age 48 after years of struggling with addiction. Exploring her far-reaching impact, the directors focus on Houston’s central dilemma: even though she had made millions of dollars and was recognized as having one of the greatest voices of all time, she still couldn’t do what she wanted, either professionally or in her personal life.
