so when i watched “the new edition story”,
i felt there was a nostalgia to it.
it took us through the various stages of their lives.
it flowed nicely.
“the bobby brown story” tho?…
it felt like a jumbled entertaining mess.
i don’t think they had enough budget for bobby’s movie.
bobby brown is the wolf you know you should avoid,
but he keeps you curious as to how he’ll ruin your life.
so i’ve been waiting for this movie since it was announced.
i had hope it would come off like how new edition did.
i didn’t know much about bobby,
besides his scandals,
but biopics tend to show us a different side.
what we do know and things we didn’t.
well the whole movie started off weird to me.
after his grandmother’s funeral,
he witnessed one of his childhood friends getting murdered in-front of him.
tatiana ali did good for her limited screen time.
it quickly transitioned after he was kicked off a new edition tour.
it showed him having to start over,
be a deadbeat dad,
and find a new manager so he could be a solo act.
my biggest issue is there was really no background into his childhood.
he had loving supportive parents,
so what made him go wild?
it went straight to his debut album and rebranding.
the movie revealed a lot.
here are a few thoughts i had:
– mehki phifer has gained a lot of wait.
it looked like he was sweating to simply talk
– lax alonso did as well
– from the old pics i had to look up,
babyface and la reid did look like that
– even in a suit,
i can see tank’s healthy arms
– where was the drug use?
bobby brown allegedly was on heavy drugs during his teen years.
he allegedly suffered from a mental illness as well.
that’s one of the alleged reasons why new edition was beefing with him.
this is why “new edition story: bobby” and “bobby brown story: bobby” make no sense
– where was the gumby haircut part?
or was this past this?
– he had way too many kids
did he not know protection?
his image was “fuck you stupid” and he did just that.
– that foursome sex scene with those groupies,
while home wolf wrote the lyrics.
he had his pants down to his ankles and everything
– he was banging janet jackson (or was she banging him?)
slamming her up against the wall and the dirty talk >>>>>
he was really into her,
but she was allegedly okay with them being a secret.
he revealed it may have been because he was allegedly dark skinned and married.
i know janet may have been pissed over that raunchy sex scene.
he was literally fuckin’ her brains out (or was she doing that to him?)
bobby was sexy in his younger days tho.
janet hit a whole marriage from the world.
i wouldn’t be shocked if this was true

– didn’t know there was a law that artists couldn’t simulate sex on stage.
wasn’t madonna sexual in her tours?
bobby was arrested in atlanta (of all places) for dry humping everything and everyone
– didn’t know whitney was booed like that,
especially at the “soul train awards” of all things.
i found out black folks didn’t like her because they thought her music was too pop
– whoever played heather locklear looked like katy perry
– bobby was either trying to insinuate robin was in love with whitney or the help.
robin is very loyal because she hasn’t spilled the beans yet.
– in the movie,
the drugs came after whitney.
what’s the truth because i’ve heard other wise…
– alicia was friends with bobby and whitney.
she’s the vixen he’s married to now.
– i don’t know if i like the actress who is playing whitney.
– i don’t know if i like the actor they used to play kevin costner either
– whitney had a miscarriage while filming this scene on “the bodyguard”:
– bobby and whitney were very toxic for each other.
it seemed more about sex with them.
i wonder if that would have still been the case if they didn’t get together?
imagine if he ended up with janet…
i think it’s a movie to watch,
even if you are left scratching your head at the going ons.
i mean everyone is talking about it today.
it’s coming from bobby brown’s side of things.
you don’t know if he “forgot” most of his own fault.
woody mcclain is doing a good job bringing him to life.
from the sex scenes to the cocky attitude…
i’m ready for the final installment tonight.
you can live tweet with me on ( x twitter).
What are your thoughts about the movie?
spill tea if you feel the urge.
lowkey: i never listened to a bobby brown record,
but i just listened to “don’t be cruel”.
i’m into it.
chris brown is bobby brown.
that is the heir to that throne.
