Ok, well this is a BBD and BB tour and has no NE lead singers. You avn do SOME NE Songs but call the db concert what it is.

Ralph probably felt some kind of way after watching that movie.I hope he's doing well and can leet it go.

Ricky is a pretty good singer in his own right. "Something in your eyes" and "When can I see you smile" are classics.

Explain how this is going to be a good tour when BB sings like a garbage disposer, Ricky....

Ralph needs to drop the ego and get off the dope. He’s the only one who didn’t address his OBVIOUS drug problem in the movie.

Not sure if Bobby will be able to hang; but this tour will be cool. I've seen BBD several times. They're decent and can hold their own.

@ 11:19 True...I love NE.... BUT it's not New Edition without Ralph tho ( we need Johnny for 'Can you stand the rain')...this is a BBD featuring Bobby Brown tour ;)

He left out the part about the rumors floating around that ralph & Johnny now has all rights to the name New Edition that's why the group has a new name for this tour & Ralph isn't trying to work with them period. When NE got their star u could see the tension between them. Ralph never even promoted the movie or did any interviews with them when they were promoting it. It's some stuff going on behind the scenes & I don't think NE will be as one anytime soon.

1:03 PM Yep! That's the word om the curb. SN: I wonder if Bobby is working on his cardio?

I love all of my guys and hope they work this shit out. NE4Life

@9:29 BBD and Bobby have their own catalogs, they can perform a full concert without New Edition songs.

Ralph and Johnny are the bright ones in all of this. The other members have been living off of their hard work for years. Mike especially was involved in some under handed shit trying to replace Ralph with Johnny. This concert will be trash. Pay these talented singers their due and respect them period.

Leaving singing asisde...A group,organization or association cannot stsy together continuously without trust and respect no matter how talented they may be. One thing I am convinced of is this. Johnny Gill is a complete liar and loud ass theif. Im sure they will have another movie to tell the real and total truth one day. Let Brook that manager of theirs lead the story and all this bs that's goibg on now will be understandable. Johnny is the conniving snake in the group who throws the rocks and waits for Bobby and sometimes the others mess up and then behind the scenes throw them under the bus. He has been doing this since he was input to the group. And how did he get in? Right, because Bobby made him necessary because he could not stay focused and clean. His solo career was in the toilet and Bivins let him in. If Mike Ralph Ricky and Ronnie stop the bs and tell the fans the truth they will be abke to FREELY move on. A liar is the real root to ALL evil. Not money or fame. Its a liar and a theif. Its JG. Period.

@1:14 I hope so, lol. Ralph & Johnny isn't putting up with the bs any longer

@JROCK1 shut the fuck up! You don't even know what the fuck you're talking about. The sneaky snake in the grass is Michael Bivins from jump. That nigga has always been jealous of Ralph, and when he saw that Ralph and Johnny bonded, it sent him over the edge. He didn't acquire that wealth through playing Mr. Nice Guy. He's as cut throat as Sean Puffy Combs. I don't blame Ralph and Johnny for sitting this one out.

Let's talk about how BBD lost the rights to their own damn group name because they didn't show up for a gig they signed off on. The promoters sued their asses in court and won. They only had to pay a lil over 200,000.00. So if Mr. Bivins is fucking rich, how come he didn't fork over that chump change to keep the groups name?

A bunch of horrible business men if you ask me.

Years ago I saw NE in concert. Ralph didn't perform on the stop so Bobby sung lead on the old stuff. Johnny did the new stuff. Bobby was really good. Seen BBD in person so it'll be a good tour

really ralph was on drugs. he hid it well. as did ricky i was shocked when i saw the movie. i hope they can come together. they have been able to defeat the odds having a 30+ plus year career. some the folks around today won't be here in 2 years let alone decades later lol

@2:32pm first I must announce a Dick Rider Alert. Second Mike is definitely a "business man" making money with no talent whatsoever. His talent is making money off of others. Just ask Boyz II Men.

Let Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Taraji, Terrence, and whoever they want to announce that this concert is useless without Ralph and Johnny.

^^^ Taraji just got engaged so she won't be performing either

Preach 4:01 And Ralph and Johnny are saying game over. I don't blame RT or JG one bit!!

JROCK1 said...

@401 Im not disputing anything u say or calling u names. I know my truth and if u know yours then that is just another piece to this puzzle. Im sure there is no one answer. Bottom line this problem they have has nothing to do with talent. Its about respect and trust and obviously there is not much there.

^^^ JROCK you speak True Lies. Keep putting your puzzles together. This puzzle has been solved years ago. Stop caping for these devils.

JROCK1 said...

Nothing u said or can say can dispute what I know to be fact about JG. Everything else u say may be your expierience and may be true. That is not my debate. Im simply talking about my position about JG. Period.
