Bobby Brown Calls Memoir “Every Little Step” Therapeutic
“I just had to get it out,” Brown said. “It was therapeutic for me to release everything that I was holding on my heart, holding in my head … if I didn’t let it out, then God knows what would happen.” the Grammy award winning singer shared on Good Morning America.
Bobby Brown’s book Every Little Step is out now and has ruffled quite a few feathers, most notably the mother of his late ex-wife Whitney Houston in response to his interview with ABC New’s Robin Roberts. Cissy Houston issued a statement:
“Whether I would’ve chosen Bobby for my daughter’s husband or not is not important because the choice was not mine to make. She loved him, and I believe him when he says he loved her. I only wish he had loved and respected her enough to make some of the negative statements about her and Krissy [their deceased daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown] while Whitney was alive and able to respond from her perspective.”
In response to her statement Brown stated:
“We’re both mourning in the same way. When you read my book, you’ll notice that my book is not about Whitney or my daughter. My book is about my 47 years on this earth, and that’s all. New Edition, my marriage, my kids — all of my kids.I wish her the best, just like I hope she wishes me,” he said.
According to the singer, he has not been in touch with Cissy for sometime. But for everyone else that may have something to say he shared:
“There’s going to be some people that don’t understand, and there’s also going to be some people that’s anticipating the book,” Brown said. “It was very important for me … I’m moving onto a better space and a better place in my life, and I think I couldn’t have wrote this 10 years ago. Right now was the perfect time for me.”
