NEW YORK — After a long absence from music, Whitney Houston (Pictured left) is staging a much-hyped career comeback with an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
Houston will be Winfrey's first guest as the talk-show queen launches her 24th season on Sept. 14. According to her Web site, Oprah.com, Winfrey calls Houston's appearance "the most anticipated music interview of the decade."
The 46-year-old superstar hasn't done a major TV interview since 2002, when she addressed questions about her drug use from ABC's Diane Sawyer. (Where she infamously stated "Crack is whack"-Cool Black)
Houston is releasing her new album, "I Look to You," on Aug. 31.
She is one of the best-selling artists of all time, but her career stalled as she battled drugs and endured a troubled marriage to Bobby Brown.
