Diddy talks about Whitney Houston: 'She was full of life...full of joy' -- VIDEO

Posted on

In the days since the passing of Whitney Houston, her friends and colleagues have opened up and shared about their time with the pop superstar.

During his visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Diddy recalled his memories of Houston (who will be laid to rest on Saturday) and how he wound up as a guest at her 1992 wedding to Bobby Brown.

“When I was growing up in the music industry, before I had success, I somehow got on her wedding invitation,” Diddy told DeGeneres, “So I was at her wedding but I didn’t really know her — but it was one of the hottest things in town for the music industry.”

“I didn’t crash the party,” he added, “I got my name on there, me plus one. I was just like, ‘Oh my God. I’m at Whitney Houston’s wedding.’ I was a big Bobby Brown fan.” After attending her nuptials, Diddy said he got closer to Houston over the years. “She was so full of life. So full of just joy.  She always made you feel that she noticed you and recognized you and spoke to you. She’ll definitely, truly be missed.”
