Whitney Houston biopic: Bobbi Kristina wants to play mom in biopic

While there are no immediate plans for a Whitney Houston biopic, that hasn’t stopped celebrities from expressing interest in playing the iconic singer.

Last month, Rihanna said she would be honored to play Houston in response to rumors about her role in any potential movie about the recently deceased singer. Jennifer Hudson, Vivica A. Fox and Meagan Good have also been mentioned as potential leads.

Now comes Houston’s 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, who feels she would be the perfect person to play her mother, according to TMZ.

Bobbi said no one knew her better. TMZ’s sources also said Bobbi said if Easy E’s son could play his father in a movie, she could play her mother.

The famed singer died in February. A coroner ruled that she drowned in her hotel bathtub and that cocaine was found in her body.
