New Edition Reunion “Hell”

Jan. 31 [10:00 EST] — So how’s the New Edition reunion tour going?

“It’s been hell, absolute hell,” Johnny Gill told the Associated Press.

Gill joined the group when Bobby Brown left to pursue a successful solo career in 1986, but now both Brown and Gill are back in the fold along with Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, and Ralph Tresvant.

“When you have six different individuals, everybodys got their own way of doing things,” Gill reportedly said.

The newly reformed group performed at Monday nights American Music Awards, but Brown was conspicuously absent from the show.It was later said that Brown, who reportedly dropped his pants and stormed off stage at an Orlando show two nights before the AMAs, missed his flight to Los Angeles for the awards show.
