Whitney Houston and Madonna

While Madonna may have shaded Janet, leave it to the late, great Whitney to keep it classy and sassy. After Madonna teamed up with Babyface, Nippy reminded MTV in 1996, "Before Madonna, it was Face and I. OK? Do I have to say anymore." Nonetheless, the two always had mutual respect for each other. After Whitney passed, Madonna said, "I just remember being extremely envious of her and also touched by her innocence.”
