Bobby Brown Releases New Book "Every Little Step"
|Bobby Brown Releases New Book "Every Little Step"|
"I just had to get it out," Brown said. "It was therapeutic for me to release everything that I was holding on my heart, holding in my head ... if I didn't let it out, then God knows what would happen."
The 47-year-old New Edition frontman’s “Every Little Step” tell-all hits bookstores on Monday and it’s jam-packed with stories of sex and many more things.
According to Brown, it was his late wife Whitney Houston’s idea that he sow his wild oats before they tied the knot in 1992. Brown was only 23 at the time and says Houston wanted him to get all the “partying out of my system” before the wedding.
The Grammy-winning R&B singer appeared on "Good Morning America" to discuss the book. He said the reactions are what he "expected them to be."
"There's going to be some people that don't understand, and there's also going to be some people that's anticipating the book," Brown said. "It was very important for me ... I'm moving onto a better space and a better place in my life, and I think I couldn't have wrote this 10 years ago. Right now was the perfect time for me."
In response to Brown's recent interview with the mother of the late singer Whitney Houston, who was married to Brown — issued a statement:
"Whether I would've chosen Bobby for my daughter's husband or not is not important because the choice was not mine to make.
while Whitney was alive and able to respond from her perspective."
Brown responded, "That's a mother of a woman and a child. She feels the same way I feel, as far as we're missing two people in our lives that we dearly love, and that's her opinion. I mean, I have my opinion, and she has hers. There's no difference.
We're both mourning in the same way. When you read my book, you'll notice that my book is not about Whitney or my daughter. My book is about my 47 years on this earth, and that's all. New Edition, my marriage, my kids — all of my kids."
