  • Whitney Houston says allergies, not drugs, behind tour date cancellations


    Those pesky dandelions!

    Responding to reports that she had relapsed into drug use, Whitney Houston came out Wednesday to say that it was allergies, not drug use, that landed her in a Paris hospital with an upper respiratory infection.

    “I’m feeling great,” she told People. “I’m just ready to move on and continue my world tour.”

    Houston said she is now out of the hospital and ready to launch her European tour after canceling its first four dates.

    “My health is terrific,” said Houson, 46. “But this is a time when I get a lot of allergies.”

    She said rumors that she was using drugs again – the singer has admitted to being addicted to cocaine for much of the 1990s and 2000s – were “ridiculous.”

    “At this point, I just don’t respond. I don’t even read it,” she told People of the drug use reports.

    (But wait, didn’t she just respond?)

    Houston’s tour is scheduled to resume on April 13 in Birmingham, England
