In a rare act of mercy towards Western society, Osama bin Laden has hammered another nail into the coffin of Whitney Houston's musical career. According to the elusive terrorist leader's former lover, the Sudanese poet Kola Boof, he once described the former coke-sniffing songstress as his ideal pin-up.
"He would say how beautiful she is," says Boof in her autobiography, Diary of a Lost Girl, reported in Harper's Bazaar. "What a nice smile she has, how truly Islamic she is but is just brainwashed by American culture and her husband, Bobby Brown - whom Osama talked about having killed, as if it were normal to have women's husbands killed."
It's a cultural difference.
