Trivia / Whitney Houston

  • Artist Existence Failure: There were plans to make a movie out of the sequel to Waiting to Exhale, and according to co-star Loretta Devine, the movie is still in the works, though it is unknown what they will do with Whitney Houston's character.
  • Development Hell: Subverted with My Love Is Your Love, which came eight years after I'm Your Baby Tonight, but because Houston had chosen to pursue recording for soundtracks. Likely played straight with the albums that followed, due to her vocal ability at the time.
  • Follow the Leader: Pick a popstar, any popstar. When you ask who their influences are, 90% of them will say "Whitney Houston".
