New York Songwriter Plays Musical Blame Game With Whitney Houston And Bobby Brown

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A lot of people think Whitney Houston is nuts to stay with Bobby Brown but one New York songwriter thinks it’s the other way around.

Ethan Lipton has just released a new CD, Baby, I Feel The Same Way, that includes a song called “Whitney Houston,” that takes the side of Houston’s bad boy hubby.

Lyrics for the pro-Brown ballad include Bobby was a good boy/ Everybody knew his ma and pa/ Then ol’ Whitney done seduced him, now Bobby’s always running from the law.

Lipton has never seen Brown’s reality show, Being Bobby Brown, but he decided to write the song because, he points out, “in many relationships, one person gets used to being the victim.”

Plus, he admits he thought it would be funny to write a tune from the standpoint that “maybe it is all HER fault.”

Lipton doesn’t know if the couple has heard his musical commentary on their relationship but he hopes when they do, the song will inspire a mixture of suspicion, discomfort and, most of all, laughter.
