CNikky and our partners EURweb caught up with SWV, Estelle, Tony Rock, Jimmy Jam and Goapele at the 2012 Soul Train Awards. The stars talked to Cherise Nicole about how they felt about the evenings Lifetime Achievement Award receipients, New Edition. Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky , Mike, Ralph and Johnny were not only honored during the awards show, but they also performed a few of our favorite hits. Bobby, who has been through a lot this past year (rehab and the loss of Whitney Houston) was the most emotional during the acceptance speech. He shed some tears while thanking his fans for supporting him through everything. Who is his #1 Fan? Well, It seems as though Taj from SWV is competing for that title…
When asked about Bobby she said:
” I still got a crush on Bobby Brown, I’m gon’ crush on him for life, my husband understands!”
“In his hay day, he was off the chain, I’m a dedicated fan. Just because he changed I’m not gonna stop loving him. I don’t look the same either. I ain’t even gonna front. I’m still cute, but honey I can’t walk around with them half tops on either!”
Tony Rock spoke about performing as the 7th member of New Edition saying:
“I’m not guaranteeing that I won’t rush the stage tonight when they perform. I might pull a Kanye and rush the stage.”
