For the first time in seven years, Oprah Winfrey will conduct an interview with Whitney Houston whose career plummeted following drug abuse and troubled marriage to Bobby Brown.
When "The Oprah Winfrey Show" returns on September 14 for the 24th season, it will tag along a big star as the first guest. The talk show fronted by Oprah Winfrey will welcome Whitney Houston to the famous couch for the first time in seven years.
In a press release on Wednesday, August 19, Oprah has called the appearance as "the most anticipated music interview of the decade." Whitney will talk about her life in the past ten years and the album, "I Look to You" which will arrive in U.S. stores on August 31.
Whitney Houston was a big name in the entertainment industry in the '80s and early '90s when she claimed Grammys and starred in the Oscar-nominated movie, "The Bodyguard". She made ugly headlines following a weight loss, drug use and rocky marriage to Bobby Brown in late '90s.
"I Look to You" will mark her rise from the black hole. "I'm a lot wiser now, certainly a lot older. Things mean a lot more to me," Whitney said of the album. "I have a 16-year-old daughter, which makes a lot of changes in a woman's life. I think the songs themselves will speak to you when you hear them. And you'll understand where I am and the changes I've gone through for the better."
