Brandy Norwood: 'Nobody Can Play Whitney Like Me'

Former child star Brandy has it kept it on the down low these days, but the actress-singer pops up in this clip from TrueExclusives to tell the world her dream gig -- playing Whitney Houston in a biopic. Showing the kind of sassitude that would behoove her if she were cast as the "I Will Always Love You" diva, Brandy dishes on why she'd beat out all the other ladies.

"My dream role would be to play Whitney Houston. Of course she would have to sing all the songs. But I would love to play Ms. Whitney. I have her personality down pat, her 'isms' down pat. Like no offense ladies -- it's a lot of talented ladies there -- but nobody can play Whitney like me. Yes!"

The comment got us thinking: Which star would you like to see playing Whitney Houston in an imaginary biopic? Thirty-two-year-old Brandy might seem like an unlikely choice against the Jennifer Hudsons and Beyonces out there, but the two go further back than you might think. Brandy appeared with Houston in the 1997 Disney film adaption of the "Cinderella" musical, with Brandy as the titular star. See a clip from the movie below.
