Whitney Houston Is No Fan of Seatbelts

Whitney Houston.

It was supposed to be a good week for Whitney Houston, who hopped on a plane to Detroit yesterday to head to her first day of work shooting the new movie Sparkle, where she'll play mom to Jordin Sparks. Unfortunately, there was one sticking point: her seatbelt. TMZ reports that Houston was almost thrown off the Delta flight when she refused to buckle up before takeoff; the contretemps eventually came to an end when Houston allowed another crew member to pick up the belt and fasten it for her, which allowed them to buckle her in without her actually having to touch the mechanical instrument herself. Thinking outside the box! [TMZ]
