Brown: It was all Whitney's fault

There have been some self-serving autobiographies, but Bobby Brown's book is so full of self-service it's like a restaurant with a buffet bar, a salad cart, and a help-yourself desert trolley that also expects you to bus your own table:

In a new book, Brown, best known now for his frequent run-ins with the law rather than his onetime Grammy-winning music career, writes that Houston fueled his appetite for drugs and used him to tidy up her image.

Well, if that was the plan, that worked really well, didn't it?

Brown insists that he never used cocaine before he got together with Whitney, and that Whitney used him to try and dampen down stories that she was gay. Yes, even his tell-all book makes him sound like a Family Dollar Ike Turner.

According to E!, Brown also tells stories against himself:
According to the tome's blurb copy, it notes he dated Janet Jackson and Madonna, "sle[pt] with thousands of women," and nearly died from a drug overdose. For boy-band completists, it promises to reveal "the real reason he left New Edition." And for fans of author and music-video star Karrine "Superhead" Steffans, it offers this critique: "Yes, I've spent several nights at her house," Brown writes. "But she was only good for what her nickname stood for."

It does sound as if every segment is going to end "needless to say, I had the last laugh."

Whereas Whitney could say, "Needles to say... I took drugs."

What, she helped improve GCSE results at his failing Comprehensive?
