Being the daughter of a famous musician who was a trend setting legend, Virginia Watson understands Bobbi Kristina’s pain and what she has to deal with. Watson would love to sit and talk to young Bobbi about her experiences and what she had to personally deal with in sorting the emotional turmoil and the business entanglements of her late father.
Virginia told EURweb:“I just want to tell Bobbi Kristina that I understand because I’ve been there.”
Virginia also confessed to EURweb that she has been told numerous times that she reminds people of Whitney Houston:
“I can’t tell you how long people have told me I look like Ms. Houston.”
Virginia continues with gracious curiosity: “It has occurred often and the comparisons have been with me since Whitney’s debut.”
The talented and spirited Virginia takes it in stride, and she has worked to carve out a career for herself outside of the shadows of her father’s fame or her resemblance to the late Whitney Houston. Miss Watson has just returned to Los Angeles from making her off Broadway debut in “The Ladies Rack” at the Manhattan Repertory Theater. Virginia has been featured on “NCIS-LA,” “Desperate Housewives,” “The Parkers,” “NYPD Blue” and more. Currently, she is in pre-production for a documentary on the life and music of her father Johnny Guitar Watson with a working title “The Real Gangster of Love… His Life and his Music.”
Occupied with a full slate, Virginia Watson is still praying that her life can inspire not only Bobbi Kristina but the lives of so many other young celebrity children who have lost their parents.
Johnny Guitar Watson was a legendary guitarist and soul recording artist who scored with hits like “Superman Lover,” “Ain’t That A Bitch, “Gangster of Love” and “Ta Ta You Baby.” His career spanned from 1963 until his death on May 17, 1996 when he collapsed on stage from a heart attack in Yokohama, Japan.
