In an interview talking about her "Nothing But Love" tour, Whitney Houston opted to share her insight about today's pop stars. And, she made it clear that she is not a fan of artists who put on "Halloween costumes" on their shows.

"There are some extremely gifted and talented young women and young men out there who don't have to really put on Halloween costumes, just be themselves," she gushed. "A little extravagance, a little flair, a little sexiness or a sultriness is cool, but some of them are very dark. ... To me, it's not becoming."

Whitney Houston will resume the tour in support of her comeback album "I Look to You" on April 8 at MEN Arena in Manchester. The last stop, meanwhile, will take place on May 29 at SAP Arena in Mannheim.

Detailed info about her upcoming concerts can be found on her MySpace.

God speed to you Whitney as you take on the next leg of your tour in Paris. I know you'll be fine. Just want you to know that your true fans love you unconditionally and feel so honored to have you in the game singing, dancing, smiling and just sending us "nothing but love". Stay Strong in Christ.

Great interview and I agree with everything that she said. It's ok to use costumes and special effects but when they take the spotlight over your talent and gifts, then it's a problem. It's so glad to have whitney back. She looks good, gained weight and is speaking so openly and genuinely, love that and her thoughts and thanks to her fans were touching. Saw clips of her last 2 shows in Australia and she sounded good. Stay strong Whitney. You are truly one of the greats. Icon!
