Bobby Brown Praises New Edition Story … Shades Lee Daniels!
It’s safe to say Bobby Brown is not a fan of Empire, or any of Lee Daniels’ work for that matter. HipHollywood caught up with Brown at the Paley Center for Media World Premiere Screening & Conversation of BET’s The New Edition Story, and the R&B crooner praised the film while also shading Daniels.
“The movie tells what New Edition is and you’re going to enjoy it because Lee Daniels is not a part of this. Chris Robinson did an excellent job,” said Brown with a huge grin.
We’re not sure why Brown has some disdain for Daniels’ work, but he’s not alone. In recent weeks, many have criticized Daniels for casting a white woman as the lead for his new girl group drama Star.
Meanwhile, Brown told us he has plans for his own film, but is OK if there are some things left out about him in the upcoming New Edition film. “My story is on the way, but for this story, let it be said that this is how I was. Then, when you see my story, you’ll hear some truths and non-truths.”
