Just so we’re clear (in case I send my resume over), alright.
We saw when our friends at TerMiteZ bombrush you to get your take on the Bobbi Kristina and we noticed you wanted to make it very clear that while you’ve interviewed Whitney Houston, you weren’t “friends.”
On February 2-several tweets-while we kinda went in (on whomever could have possibly been friends with Bobbi Kristina’s mom Whitney) we (I) didn’t have you in mind.
I’m a writer and pop culture journalist-I’m not “friends” with any of the celebs I write about either-no matter if, or how friendly.
I get it.
But I do see where people (who aren’t journalists, or have not gone to school for it etc) can think that journalists or talk show hosts are considered “friends” after a great, chummy interview (or great blog/write up).
Now…Everybody “gets it.”
Right y’all? Y’all get it?
