Tia and I have 5th row tickets for New Edition on Sunday and I have not been this excited about a concert since...well...El DeBarge, who was supposed to open and is no longer opening. But I don't even want to talk about that right now. Moving on.
I don't think I can really express how important New Edition is to me or how important they are to music, particularly R&B. I am so sad that kids today don't have music and entertainers like this to go grow up with. Today's music is so awful! They are the last R&B male group of their caliber. One can argue that Boyz II Men can outsing New Edition but in no way can they out PERFORM New Edition. Ronnie Devoe, the greatest boy band dancer of all time, is killin' them alone.
I have been freaking out all week. I literally have cried watching Youtube clips. And Ralph Tresvant is singlehandedly the smoothest dude walking. Also know that his shag in the above video is giving me everything I need for my life right now.
There will be tears. There will be high pitched screaming. There will be heart palpitations. Basically, I will be causing a scene. It's just that simple. And you can forget about live tweeting. I will just be trying to get my breathing in order. I cannot wait!!!
