That's what we're learning from Kola Boof, the Sudanese poet and novelist whose new book "Diary of a Lost Girl" draws on her experiences as one of bid Laden's girlfriends. Actually she says she was bin Laden's sex slave for a while.
Now she says bin Laden obsessed on Whitney Houston. Boof says: "He said he had a paramount desire for 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." Boof added he couldn't stop talking about Whitney.
All of this news comes via my friends at Page Six of the New York Post. And it gets better.
Bin laden thought about having Whitney's husband Bobby Brown, well, rubbed out.
Boof also said some other things about bin Laden that reveal the terror mastermind to be nothing less than a complete racist. He didn't think much of black people, but then again, he doesn't think much of all of us who aren't strict adherents of his brand of Islam.
You believe all this?
I don't know what to think. I have no trouble imagining bin Laden as a complete nutjob.
But Boof could say anything she wanted about bin Laden. Who could challenge her?
I just think it's fascinating.
A couple months ago I heard the most popular recording artist in Iraq was Lionel Richie. Now I'm hearing bin Laden lusts for Whitney.
If you keep your eyes and ears open, you learn something new everyday.
