Patrick Bateman on Whitney Houston

13 Feb

Of all the tributes I’ve heard since Whitney Houston’s death, not one has come close to Patrick Bateman’s eloquent summary of her first album in American Psycho, which you can see here.

Did you know that Whitney Houston’s debut LP, called simply Whitney Houston had four number one singles on it? Did you know that, Christie? It’s hard to choose a favourite among so many great tracks, but “The Greatest Love of All” is one of the best, most powerful songs ever written about self-preservation, dignity. Its universal message crosses all boundaries and instils one with the hope that it’s not too late to better ourselves. Since, Elizabeth, it’s impossible in this world we live in to empathize with others, we can always empathize with ourselves. It’s an important message, crucial really. And it’s beautifully stated on the album.”

Bateman listening to Whitney Houston no doubt...
