Lincoln and New Edition: Cool It Now, Please

May 31, 2005
If you remember the 1980s—and who doesn’t, other than Ozzy Osbourne—you’ll be grooving to the latest Lincoln sponsorship, this one with Eighties R&B group New Edition. When you hit the tour stop in your city supporting their new album, you'll see a two-minute video that has our guys checking out the new LT.

But for those of us who choose not to cool it now, or can't even name all the members of Bell Biv DeVoe (hint: there's three of 'em), it's a puzzling union. How many tickets are they selling? Wasn't the group's last Top Ten hit back in, um, high school? Ford's efforts with country music have sounded sweet (Alan Jackson, Toby Keith) but this one seems a little off key.

At least Ricky and the crew are still scoring record deals with Diddy. At last check, former New Editioner Bobby Brown was bailing out members of his entourage, supposedly for fighting at Atlanta's Justin's restaurant (ironically, owned by Diddy). And, in case you hadn't heard, he's married to Whitney Houston, who is rumored to be a bit of a diva.
