Diamada Galás attacks Clive Davis on Facebook
The avant-garde composer accused Davis of exploiting Whitney Houston, both during her drug-addled late career and after her death.
Avant-garde composer and vocalist Diamada Galás severely criticized Whitney Houston’s former mentor in a Facebook note for allegedly exploiting Houston’s death.
The vicious, inflammatory note states that Clive Davis, “Will be able to package her in frills and sell it big time – even during the nadir of record sales.”
A titan in the music industry, Davis is the Chief Creative Officer of Sony Music Entertainment and is credited with bringing Houston to prominence. Davis has already received criticism from Houston’s family and others for continuing a pre-Grammy party in the same hotel as Houston’s death—even after learning of the news.
The note has received over 400 likes and has been shared nearly 200 times since it was posted on Monday.
The note didn’t stop there. Galás also accused Davis of taking advantage of Houston’s documented drug problems during her career:
“Mr. Davis thought nothing of keeping her up onstage while she received humiliating reviews.”
A spokesperson for Davis launched right back with a statement. “While Ms. Galás is entitled to her uninformed opinion,” the statement said. “Her Facebook post is wholly inaccurate and offensive.”
We have a feeling that the statement won’t have the same viral potential as Galás’ accusations.
