Whitney Houston Gets Down & Dirty

What do you want for yourself at this point?
Really, it has nothing to do with business whatsoever. It's my family. To raise children, to raise decent human beings. To keep my husband happy. To keep him strong. Things of that nature. They are very simple things.

Bobby and I were talking the other day. He cracks me up. He goes: "You think you're so fine now" – because I dropped the weight – "but you know what? Bam, I'm gonna pop you again." I said: "What! You got to be kidding, I just dropped a baby!" He said, "Nah, we're gonna have some more kids, honey." We were joking about it – we were talking about having more children.

There's nothing I want to do individually at the moment that I can think of. I'm a mother, and that's my concern for the most part right now. I'm gonna do a tour, I'm gonna do another movie – things I'm looking forward to, don't get me wrong. But it's not my first priority. It's not what I put my focus on. Right now that little girl is my focus, and that's it.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
