Whitney Houston’s legendary status was obvious, but it was something everyone was aware of already. But what the masses weren’t aware of was what was also intriguing about her.

A new film on the singer’s life will attempt to put that to answer all questions. The trailer for the documentary style film Whitney is a collection of recollections and private moments, carried along by her friends and family members, including Bobby Brown. Fans will say that Houston appeared to have it easy in the earliest parts of her career and into peak fame but that’s not how it was.

“People think it’s so easy and it’s not,” Houston says in one scene. Pressure came at her on all sides. Moments later, she moves on to a new topic. “Paula Abdul ain’t s**t,” she said. “That girl is singing off-key on the record.”

The clip answers questions asked of her friends and family about the most controversial times in Houston’s life.

Whitney is set to release on July 6 in the U.S., it will be the second documentary about Houston’s life, following Whitney: Can I Be Me, which premiered last year. The film is currently being played at the Cannes Film Festival.
