Whitney Houston’s interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on American TV screens last night. The singer revealed shocking details o her battle with drugs. In the candid tell-all, Whitney admits that she mixed cannabis with crack cocaine in the depths of her addiction.The singer admitted that her drug-addled life spiralled out of control after her appearance in 1992 movie The Bodyguard.

She revealed: ‘Before The Bodyguard it was very light. After The Bodyguard it started getting heavy. Cocaine. Marijuana.’ Whitney confessed that her and ex-hubby Bobby Brown would sit in silence for a week at a time, watching TV and smoking cannabis laced with cocaine.

She explained: ‘We were not doing pipe smoking. You roll it up and you smoke it in your weed. It’s almost like heroin cocaine speedballs but you level it off with marijuana, OK?’

The singer revealed how her marriage crumbled and Bobby Brown became abusive when the drug addiction took hold. ‘He spat on me and he had hate, such a hate in his eyes for me. I was angry. I was very hurt. I knew something was going to blow,’ revealed Whitney.

‘He pushed me against the wall. I went back and I took the phone and I hit him over the head with it. He fell down on the floor.’The pair split in 2006 and later divorced in 2007. Whitney revealed to Oprah that it’s thanks to her mother, Cissy, that her life is now back on track. She intervened by arriving at Whitney’s home with armed police and a court injunction, giving the singer an ultimatum: go back to rehab or leave your career behind forever.

Rihanna in NYC

Rihanna is set to blast ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in her new songs. The ‘Umbrella’ singer is yet to speak about her volatile relationship with the 20-year-old singer – who recently pleaded guilty to assaulting her and was sentenced to five years probation and six months community labour – for the first time in a track on her upcoming album.

Ne-Yo, who is working with the 21-year-old singer on the record, said: “Expect an edgier, almost angrier Rihanna on this one. Rihanna says some things on this album that you’ve never heard her say before.” It is thought Rihanna could be planning to sing about the assault, or about the violence which marred the relationship. Court papers have revealed the pair were involved in at least two other “domestic violence” incidents before the February altercation, during which Chris punched, kicked and choked Rihanna in his car.

In May, it was claimed Rihanna had been writing a song about killing a cheating partner at the time of the assault. It was called ‘Emergency Room’, and was about a women who dreams of exacting revenge by hospitalising her unfaithful partner.
