READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
As part of a live, hour-long tribute show dedicated entirely to the recent death of Whitney Houston, on Monday night Piers Morgan visited with several music insiders who spoke candidly about the late singer's life.
Amongst those joining Morgan was Jennifer Holliday, who revealed surprising insight into Houston's early days: "We were all around a lot of drugs," the grammy award winner told Morgan. "I hate to say that she had started before she had met Bobby Brown."
As Morgan pointed out, "it is a presumed assumption that the bad guy in all of this is Bobby Brown." But Holliday shared details from the legendary singer's rise to fame, all before her 1992 marriage to the R&B singer-songwriter:
"At that time, when Whitney had started and had become a star in the 80's, we were just around it all," admitted Holliday. "It had begun, we were around it."
