This is not a joke. But is sure sounds like one.
According to Kola Boof–a Sudanese woman and author who claims to be a former Osama Bin Laden sex slave–Bin Laden was obsessed with washed-up pop singer Whitney Houston and was willing to drop his “color rule” and make the Black American singer one of his wives.
Boof, who says Bin Laden raped and kept her prisoner in a Moroccan hotel, told the UK’s Daily Mail that Bin Laden even wanted to assassinate Houston’s husband, Bobby Brown.
Boof, whose book is excerpted in the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, writes:
Osama kept coming back to Whitney Houston. He asked if I knew her personally when I lived in America. I told him I didn’t.
He said that he had a paramount desire for Whitney Houston, and although he claimed music was evil he spoke of someday spending vast amounts of money to go to America and try to arrange a meeting with the superstar.
It didn’t seem impossible to me. He said he wanted to give Whitney Houston a mansion that he owned in a suburb of Khartoum. He explained to me that to possess Whitney he would be willing to break his colour rule and make her one of his wives. Whitney Houston’s name was the one that would be mention constantly.
How beautiful she was, what a nice smile she has, how truly Islamic she is but is just brainwashed by American culture and by her husband Bobby Brown, whom Osama talked about having killed, as if it were normal to have women’s husbands killed.
So much for Bin Laden’s phony religious fundamentalism. Boof says Bin Laden read Playboy and Star Magazine. See, guys, Islam ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. Even a man with like 11 wives still feels he needs Playboy. But while he reads it, our troops can’t have Playboy in Iraq because we wouldn’t want to offend “devout Muslims” like Bin Laden. We wonder if he’s still getting his subscriptions in the mountains and caves of Pak-ghanistan.
Fred Savage and Don Johnson watch out. Boof says Bin Laden’s favorite shows were “The Wonder Years,” “Miami Vice,” and “MacGyver.”
Question: Did Bin Laden’s Whitney Houston obsession withstand her and Bobby Brown’s horrid reality show? If it did, then we really do have questions about the terrorist-in-chief’s taste. (My review of that show here.)
Hey Bin Laden, you may have wanted to meet Whitney Houston. But someone else beat you to the punch (and he didn’t have a “color rule”). . .
