Bobby Brown DID attend Whitney's funeral in New Jersey on Saturday, but left beofre the ceremony began. He issued a statement saying, "My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continued to ask us and no one else to move." TMZ says that Bobby is leaving out one important detail: Whitney's family invited Bobby and TWO guests, but he showed up at the church with NINE people, and got mad when he was told they couldn't seat all of them.
Many spoke at Whitney's funeral, but the 15 minute long speak from Kevin Costner was absolutely touching and I know she would have loved to hear him say, "A lot of leading men could have played my part, a lot of guys could have filled that role, but you Whitney, I truly believe are the only one who could have played Rachel Marron. You weren't just pretty, you were as beautiful as a woman could be. People didn't just like you, they loved you." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wjh0N1EzPI&feature=related
Over the weekend, Nick Cannon announced he's quitting his radio show in New York.

Simon Cowell has an interesting idea that I'm surprised I haven't thought of: A face-off between all of the winners of the various singing competition shows. He Tweeted, "Maybe the winner of 'X Factor' this year should compete with winner of 'The Voice' and 'American Idol' in a super final. Just a thought. I'd be up for it."
