Bobbi Kristina Brown
A tremendous amount of press and pressure has been geared towards 18-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown, to look, sing and act like her mom, the late Whitney Houston, in an issue that has increased since the singer's early passing this month at the age of 48. However, you can't expect her to be her mother.

Bobbi Kristina looks a lot like her dad, R&B singer, Bobby Brown and is her own person, but some, especially industry experts, who are watching to see what will unfold, don't see it that way and are trying to make her Houston's replacement. Houston is gone and to place such immense pressure on a teenager, to fill a celebrity void her mom left behind, is unreasonable.

It would be a mistake for Brown to allow herself to be swayed by the pressure and attempt to be just like her mom. It's simply too much to take on, especially while recovering from the same drug and alcohol addiction that consumed her mother's life.
