[Watch] Whitney Houston’s Self-Reflective Comments About Michael Jackson’s Death

Back in 2009, Oprah Winfrey did an exclusive interview with Whitney Houston. At the time, Michael Jackson had already died and Whitney discussed how painful Michael’s loss had been to her. Calling his death tragic, Whitney explained:

“I thought, ‘This can’t be true. This can’t be true.’ I knew he was on painkillers at one time. I didn’t know how far and how deep it was. I was getting scared… I was looking at myself going, ‘No, I don’t want this to be like this. This can’t happen. Not both of us. Mike and I were very close… No one I have ever met [was] quite like that young man… And to have it in like that saddens me.”
