Watch the trailer for a new revealing Whitney Houston documentary

The highly-anticipated documentary directed by Kevin Macdonald will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday and features insights from the music world's biggest players and her inner circle of family and friends.

Bobby Brown and record industry titans Clive Davis and L.A. Reid also make appearances in the trailer further demonstrating how much access Macdonald received.

"He wanted to be on the stage".

Finally, Brown and Houston's mother, Cissy, appear to get emotional while discussing the late pop icon. "He wanted to be in the forefront, and eventually she stepped down to lift him up", says another witness to Whitney and Bobby's strained relationship.

In a never-before-seen clip of Houston, the entertainer throws serious shade at choreographer-turned-singer Paula Abdul.

Ramazan moon sighted in Pakistan; first fast of 2018 on Thursday
The holy month traditionally begins with a new moon sighting, marking the start of the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. The PMD on May 4 had issued a handout stating that there are fair chances for the moon to be sighted on May 16 evening.


"Paula Abdul ain't shit", she says in the decades-old footage.

"There were times when I looked up to God and I'd go, 'Why is this happening to me?'" Houston says in one scene, reflecting on her rise to celebrity and its downfalls.

And, of course, Houston's own voice - specifically, her memorable 1991 performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl XXV - is showcased in the trailer. And she said to me, "I just don't understand what happened, she was the most lovely girl, ' and this was someone who knew her really well".

Miramax and Roadside Attractions have revealed the new full trailer for Whitney, the documentary about legendary chart-topping singer and actress Whitney Houston (The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale).

The Whitney Houston documentary, Whitney, won't hit screens until July 6, but judging from the hot-off-the-press trailer, it will be worth the wait.
