Angela Bassett: Whitney Houston Was More Than an Icon

Angela Bassett and Queen Latifah attend the 2015 Winter Television Critics Association press tour at the Langham Hotel on Thursday (January 8) in Pasadena, Calif.

The ladies were joined by Amanda Peet, Jack Black, Pablo Schreiber, and Tim Robbins.

“We forget that she was a woman, a mother, a sister, a friend. We forget that.,” Angela said during the panel about directing Lifetime’s Whitney about Whitney Houston. “We see her as an icon. And I think we as a public, we consumed her talent, we would want to know everything about her life. But she was sensitive, she would say, ‘I just want to be normal, I just want to, you know, can I just have a normal day? Can I just be a person? Can you just see me as a person and not as a commodity?”
