While on the Oprah show with her mom Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina,16, revealed that she would like to follow in her mother’s(and father’s) footsteps by becoming a singer.
“I know she hates it, but it’s the plan,” Bobbi Kristina said of wanting to become a singer. “It’s my plan. Mine. Yeah.”
Though she may not like the idea of her daughter wanting to pursue a career in singing, Whitney is more than happy to groom Bobbi Kristina’s talents.
“She writes creatively all the time. She writes. And she sings. She’s really starting to sing really well now,” Whitney said of her daughter. “I want her to take her time. I don’t want anybody to touch her. I want to groom her.”
It seems that Whitney and Bobbi Kristina are very protective of each other. In fact, it was Bobbi Kristina who finally convinced her mom to leave her tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown.
“she said, ‘Oh no, no, divorce him, just let him go. Let him go. I see how you are. You stay here with me. You love me. You take me to school. You do things with me. You don’t disappoint me. You don’t lie to me. You’re there for me. He tells me he’s coming, and he never comes. He tells me he’s going to give me things, he never brings them. You don’t deserve that, and neither do I,” Whitney spoke of her daughter’s encouraging words.
When asked how proud she is of her mother’s return from drugs and a turbulent marriage, Bobbi Kristina confessed, “Honestly, words can’t explain how proud I am of her, really. I’ve been there with her through everything and the whole divorce and talking and whatever, but you know, I stayed by her side. That’s like my best friend you know, that’s like my sister.”
