Pop superstar Whitney Houston has axed her July 2 outdoor concert in Berlin, blaming the bad weather for her decision. The singer was scheduled to perform with Natalie Cole and her aunt Dionne Warwick at the Waldbuene open-air arena, but organizer Tchibo - a German coffee house chain - has confirmed she's pulled out of the eagerly anticipated event. Spokeswoman Stefanie Von Carlsburg says, "We had hoped for 50,000 people to come and see them." Tour bosses have assured Whitney fans none of her other German dates - in Hamburg, Munich and Oberhausen - will be affected by the bad weather Germany's experiencing, because the gigs are all taking place at indoor venues. Berlin has suffered an abnormally rainy summer so far with temperatures dipping far below the national average for the time of year.

Whitney Houston will release her first album of original material since 2002 later this year, BMG Label Group chairman/CEO Clive Davis said Thursday.
Four songs have been completed for the as-yet-untitled project, and four more will be put to tape later this month, Davis said during Billboard's Music & Money Symposium at New York's St. Regis Hotel.
"We're on track for a holiday release," he said. "We're not going to compromise who she is to fit into today's hip-hop radio market. The public wants Whitney material."
Tracks earmarked for the album have been produced or written by Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am, producer/songwriter Sean Garrett and R&B singer Akon.
Houston, 44, has been dogged in recent years by drug and health issues -- including rehab stints in 2004 and 2005 -- a legal dispute with her father, John Houston, rumored financial problems and a troubled marriage to fellow singer Bobby Brown that ended in divorce.
Her last album, "Just Whitney," debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 in December 2002, and quickly slipped down the rankings. It was her first release since 1998's "My Love Is Your Love."

With a new album in the works, Whitney Houston is standing strong against allegations from ex-husband Bobby Brown, says Houston's aunt, soul singer Dionne Warrick.
"Whitney Houston is back!" Warrick told PEOPLE before taking the stage to perform some of her own songs at Muhammad Ali's Celebrity Fight Night XIV event in Phoenix on Friday night
"I'm thrilled that she's in the studio and working on her new album," Warwick, 67, said of her niece. "No doubt she's overcoming everything that has been put in front of her even this week."
Last week, Brown, 39, dished on their marriage – making allegations of her drug use – as he promoted his autobiography due out next month.
But rumors are nothing new to Houston, 44, who was working on her new album when she heard the news, according to music mogul Clive Davis.
"She was just in the studio this week working on a song called 'Nothing But Love' when she heard of all this mess in the papers," Davis says.
Davis adds: "I'm sure that this week has been traumatic but she's committed and looking forward to her new life."

As the 44-year-old diva with the legendary voice struggles to make her comeback, both of her exes have written scandalous things about her.
Her ex-husband Bobby Brown has come out with a tell-all autobiography, "Being Bobby Brown: The Whole Truth and Nothin' But," in which he details his and Houston's drug use and addresses the rumors of her bi-sexuality.
And now her much younger lover, Ray J, 27, has written a song dissing Brown and detailing his sex life with Houston.
In Ray J's "Boyfriend," off his just-released album, "All I Feel," which debuts this week, Ray J croons, "Is that your wife, is that your shorty, well I'm her boyfriend . . . I think the problem is you don't beat it right . . . Making love is cool, just pull her hair sometimes."
The feeling between Brown and Ray J seems to be mutual. While Ray J is more blatant in his diss, Brown tries to be subtler.
In his book, Brown writes:
"For those of you who want to know, I'm aware of the fact that Whitney had been seeing Ray J, a very young R&B artist who is most famous for being the little brother of Brandy, the multi-platinum singing artist and TV star.
"Their relationship doesn't bother me. She's open to see whoever she wants to see, just like I can see who I want to see. I know the age difference between her and the little guy is 20 years, but to each his own. The only concern I had was how our daughter felt about the age difference. As long as she's cool with it, it's fine by me."
At least Whitney hasn't starred in any sex tape. Ray J shot to national attention after he marketed a sex tape of him and ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian in flagrante.
After that video was released, with Kardashian's blessings (she also rose to fame on the wings of the tape), Ray J signed a deal with Vivid Entertainment to direct porn. When he started dating Houston, Ray J would take any opportunity to have a picture with the diva - and friends were concerned their love life would end up on the Internet, as well.

In addition to her vocal malfunction, Bobby B's ex clearly would have lost "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader," as she repeatedly shouted to the crowd, "I Love you, Trinidad!" She was actually in Tobago.

Whitney Houston made her stage comeback at a pre-Grammys party on Saturday (07.02.09).
The 45-year-old singer looked in good health as she performed in a figure-hugging animal print dress at the 2009 Grammy Salute to Industry Icons show, in honour of record industry boss Clive Davis.
Her return to the stage has been hailed a triumph, with Whitney - who has publicly battled addition to crack-cocaine and endured a bitter break-up from singer Bobby Brown - told the crowd "I got it! I got it!" before launching into her hits 'I'm Every Woman' and 'I Will Always Love You'.
Actor-and-singer Jamie Foxx praised Whitney's singing, saying: "We all crossed our fingers that her beautiful story would end happily. This is a new beginning."
The show also featured performances from Rod Stewart, Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson - who only recently returned to performing after the tragic murder of her mother, brother and nephew last year.
Whitney previously confessed to having substance abuse problems, telling US broadcaster Diane Sawyer: "I don't like to think of myself addicted. I had a bad habit which can be broken. I'm not going to tell you I'm somebody's junkie. My business is sex, drugs, rock and roll. Trust me. I partied my tail off."

Whitney Houston’s exclusive interview with chat show queen Oprah Winfrey was full of lies — because the star was desperate to drum up sales for her new album, it has been claimed.
The pop superstar spoke with Oprah about her lengthy battle with drug addiction but insiders have told American tabloid the National Enquirer that Whitney’s appearance on the talk show was just a big publicity stunt.
“It looked like Whitney had been coached before she went on camera,” a source said. “She talked in an odd whisper and was tripping over her own lies.”
“Whitney’s interview with Oprah was just a fraud,” said another source. “I think Whitney was lying through her teeth.”
Atlanta-based body language expert Patti Wood, author of Success Signals: Understanding Body Language, told the Enquirer that Whitney’s bizarre response when Oprah asked if she was now drug-free was a dead giveaway that the Queen of The Night hitmaker wasn’t being truthful.
After blurting out “Yes, ma’am,” Whitney “paused significantly and her voice became stilted” in response to the question, Wood observed.
“She blinked her eyes, which means she went into a retreat mode,” Wood said. “And she balled her hands into fists and brought them to her chest as if she were beating herself up.
“She knew what she was saying was not the truth.”

R&B star RAY J has hinted he could rekindle his romance with WHITNEY HOUSTON, explaining the pair "understand each other".
The stars shocked showbiz in 2007 when it was revealed they were secretly dating - an on/off relationship that is rumoured to have continued until this year (09).
The singers have gone their separate ways for now, while Houston, 46, masterminds her comeback and Ray J, 28, promotes the second season of his dating show For the Love of Ray J.
But the star - who famously shot a sex tape with socialite Kim Kardashian - insists they're still close.
He tells Us Weekly magazine, "We still hang out, we're friends."
And he hints their close bond means a romance is always on the cards: "We understand each other and always will."
