Last night marked the end epicness that was BET’s ‘The New Edition Story.’ Aside from being thoroughly entertaining, the Chris Robinson-directed series revealed a lot of little known facts about the group. Like Bobby Brown‘s Gumby haircut started off as a mistake and Ricky Bell used to have an addiction problem.
Beyond surface level, the biopic also revealed much about life and true friendship. Here are my top 3 takeaways, plus a bonus insert of one of my favorite New Edition tracks.
#1 You can still be struggling when everybody else thinks you’ve made it
#2 You can fight, cuss each other out and try to kill them, but real friends are forever
#3 Always read the contract before you sign!
