New Edtion – If It Isn’t Love

December 8, 2008

Has it really been that long since I’ve seen this video? ‘Cause I swear, watching it last night on VH1 Soul had me scratching my head at some of the stuff in it. And I’m sure I’m not the first, second, or even hundreth person to notice. It’s bad enough they got my boy Ralph Tresvant in some stirrup pants, but what was up with their dance during the chorus at 1:28?!?! I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but that looks like a girl group move, especially given the hand-to-hip placement!! Even more baffling, the scene at 2:15, where a shirtless Ralph dips his head into a basin of water, and snaps up out of that joint, splashing his homeboy behind him! Even the dainty Asian chick is looking at him like he’s crazy.

Maybe it’s just a testament to how much cocaine everyone was snorting back in the 80s, ’cause of lot of this stuff really came in under the radar for most of us. At least Prince made it easy for us.

  1. Shut up. You know that ni**a ain’t gay. It was somewhat homoerotic now that I look at it though. Until last night, I don’t remember the dipping the s-curl in the tub of water.
