The body of Whitney Houston arrived in New Jersey late last night via private plane as it was revealed that Whitney will be laid to rest in her childhood hometown of Newark. People Magazine says:
The late singer’s body was flown from Los Angeles via a plane owned by actor-producer Tyler Perry.
Security was tight at the Teterboro, N.J., airport, where a gold hearse left the airport heading to the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark. About 50 fans mourning the death of 48-year-old Houston [and] sung along to some of her greatest hits and lit candles in her memory.
Houston’s invitation-only funeral will take place Saturday at noon at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J.
Houston was born in Newark, where she began singing in church as a child in the choir.
Right after she died, I heard someone on the radio talking about the three divas up in heaven — Amy Winehouse, Etta James, and Whitney Houston — and they were waxing on and on about how they’d all be singing together and be best buds, then I thought to myself, wait… no, they wouldn’t. They’d fucking kill each other. Every last one of those bitches is crazy. Amy will just as soon beat you with her own beehive as look at you and you just know Whitney Houston’s stabbed somebody before, and Etta James — well, Etta James is old and black. I trust you’ve seen enough Tyler Perry movies to know how dangerous a combination that is.
