the last book I ever read (A Little Devil in America: Notes in Praise of Black Performance, excerpt four)

from A Little Devil in America: In Praise of Black Performance by Hanif Abdurraqib:

I tell you this to tell you that I might come to you at a time when you are eager for the night to erase the memory of a conversation, friends. And I will tell you what I know, and what I know is that Whitney Houston could not dance. I have made my peace with this and I beg of you to do the same. You may not know that Whitney Houston could not dance, but I am telling you that she could not dance to save her life.
