WATCH: Trailer For Lifetime’s Whitney Houston Biopic

I believe every one of us gays has our fairy god divas, and mine is certainly Whitney Houston. So I’m more than a little excited that the trailer for Lifetime’s upcoming Whitney biopic was just released.

It looks better than some of Lifetime’s recent biopic offerings (ahem, Liz & Dick), and it seems to cover all the bases: Whitney’s rise to fame, her marriage to Bobby, and—as much as I hate typing it—the drug addiction that eventually brought her down.

The film is directed by the fabulous Angela Bassett—a former costar of Whitney’s on Waiting to Exhale. It stars Yaya DaCosta as Whitney and Arlen Escarpeta as Bobby Brown. Whitney’s vocals in the film were recorded by Deborah Cox.

Buzzfeed has the full trailer on lock and key.  You can see it here.
