Clean as a whistle

[From Victoria Gotti's column in the New York Post] WITH Diane Sawyer's intimate chat with Whitney Houston about to hit the airwaves, there's much speculation of drug use and domestic distress. I can safely tell you, the enormously talented Ms. W has had some trouble in her life these past few months - but she's back! Physically, she's clean as a whistle. Her marriage is intact and she's thankful, this Thanksgiving holiday, for the health and well-being of hubby Bobby Brown and daughter Bobbi Kristina.

The Awards ceremony will air live in 164 countries to an audience potential of 1 billion viewers ! Go here to see photos of Whitney today in Barcelona! thanks Marie-Eve, Antonio, yahoo, MTV

Backstage at Barcelona
[from] : MTV has truly turned Barcelona into a star-studded city. While we're still two days away from the MTV Europe Music Awards 2002, the host city is already awash with the great and glamorous music stars of the world.

Having arrived at the Palau Sant Jordi early this morning, November 12, Bon Jovi are set to perform an impromptu acoustic gig for their Spanish fans this evening. The venue? A roundabout. A magic roundabout.

Meanwhile, our illustrious host P Diddy, in between sessions of eyeing up the Spanish talent, has been hard at work honing his presenting skills for the big night.

Royksopp and Wyclef Jean both breezed through their rehearsals, professionalism through and through, and comeback queen Whitney Houston will be flexing her vocal chords later on today as she takes to the stage to hone her performance. NL
