New Kids on the Block, New Edition

It remains to be seen whether New Edition and New Kids on the Block teaming up will be a super group or more of a stupor group. But whatever happens, it's all gravy to a suddenly philosophical Bobby Brown, who now sees getting kicked out of New Edition years ago as a good thing when viewed in the rearview mirror:

"It was only them kicking me out the group that made me like, 'Yo, if I don't succeed, I ain't going to be [nothing] back home.' But these Brothers did the best thing for me that could ever possibly be done. Teach me a lesson," Brown tells Jet magazine in this week's, um, new edition.

So far, there's no guarantee Bobby will be part of the New/New amalgamation, but New Edition sources say they'll definitely have a sixth mic ready. Because, y'know, it's his prerogative.
