Just one day before Whitney Houston was found dead, Clive Davis said in a >>CNN interview<, that Jennifer Hudson was the next Whitney! Clive must have been smokin' meth, to say/think such nonsense.Guess he was serious, because Clive has put Jennifer Hudson and Rihanna on the shortlist of people to play Whitney in the forthcoming biopic. Is Jennifer the next Whitney? Watch Clive praise Jennifer Hudson here
Only two weeks after Whitney Houston’s passing, rumors are already circulating about a tell-all book to be penned by her ex-husband Bobby Brown and a biopic being put together by longtime mentor Clive Davis.
In fact, the U.K.’s Daily Mail thinks that Rihanna is the favorite to play Houston, with Jennifer Hudson, Vivica Fox, and Jordin Sparks also apparently on the short list.
All of those ideas remain simply rumors—and pretty flimsy ones as well; the names largely seem less like genuine casting news than an arbitrary collection of black actresses.
