Semi-protected edit request on 22 December 2017[edit]

Please change the documentary title - "Whitney: Can I Be Me" to "Untitled Whitney Houston Documentary". The description of the documentary film refers to a film which has not been released and doesn't have an official title yet (the film will be released in 2018).

Please change "and the production team, Altitude," to ", the production team, Lightbox, and the distribution team, Altitude". Lightbox is the production company and Altitude is a distributor of the film.

Please change "The biopic will be released theatrically on June 11, 2017." to "The biopic will be released in 2018". The film has not been released yet and the date is not known. LightboxMedia (talk) 16:47, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. You also appear to have a WP:COI with this article. Upsidedown Keyboard (talk) 14:45, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

Please delete the whole "Film" section and change it to: "A documentary film on Whitney Houston's life and death, entitled Whitney: Can I Be Me, was released in 2017. It was co-produced and co-directed by Nick Broomfield."

This change is requested as at the moment, the description refers to The Untitled Whitney Houston documentary, a different which has not released yet and is directed by Kevin Macdonald. 85.118.2.11 (talk) 15:45, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Deterioration of voice[edit]

SunCrow, I appreciate you adding information on this. As seen at Talk:Mariah Carey/Archive 12#Being neutral: Voice section etc., where Petergriffin9901, SNUGGUMS, IndianBio, Calvin999 (₳aron), Escape Orbit and myself commented, there was talk of adding such material here and at the Mariah Carey article. That stated, you should typically stay away from citing the Daily Mail (especially for WP:BLPs) since the Wikipedia community has repeatedly found it unreliable and has banned it for WP:BLPs. Yes, Houston is now deceased, but still.

Also pinging Tenebrae in case he wants to weigh in and is not watching the article. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 18:46, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

That's a tough one. Daily Mail items relying on anonymous sources and on the paper's own gossipy claims are clearly unusable. In this case, the writer is quoting the vocal coach directly in an interview the writer conducted. So I think it may be usable. However, we already have quotes from the vocal coach from ABC News and Inside Edition, so I'm not sure why we need '"Daily Mail as well.
One additional note: The New York Post cite has to be removed. All it's doing is referencing ABC News. Since the ABC News cite is there, the Post cite is completely superfluous. --Tenebrae (talk) 19:02, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
