According to reports, Kola Boof, a Sudanese poet/novelist who alleges that Osama Bin Laden kept her
as a sex slave after raping her a decade ago, also claims in her autobiography Diary of a Lost Girl that Bin Laden
thought that Whitney Houston was the beautiful woman alive and wanted to make her one of his wives. Osama Bin Laden may not
have danced to "I Want to Dance With Somebody" but he did want to make Whitney Houston his wife, even if it meant whacking
The Celebrity Cafe reports that Kola Boof writes about the whole Whitney Houston obsession, "He told me Whitney
Houston was the beautiful woman he'd ever seen. The author goes on to say that "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." The book also claims that Osama Bin Laden
discussed having Bobby Brown killed so he could get closer to Whitney Houston like "it were a normal thing to have women's
The Daily Mail had some more excerpts from Kola Boof's Diary of a Lost Girl about the bizarre obsession
that Osama Bin Laden had with Whitney Houston, excerpts that will also appear in Harper's Bazaar, with the author
writing "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, who Osama talked about having killed, as if it were normal
to have women's husbands killed" Kola Boof also claims to have found copies of Star and Playboy magazine in Osama Bin Laden's briefcase.
And, in a story that could only get weirder, The Celebrity Cafe also reports that Kola Boof's book claims that Osama
Bin Laden was also a fan of The Wonder Years, Miami Vice, and MacGyver. Maybe there's a commentator spot
open on the next edition of I Love the 80s.
