En Vogue, Back Together? Sure, Why Not.

Look, gang...it's a recession, and '90s divas need cash. (Please see Robin S.) This must explain why all four original members of En Vogue have reunited for a pile of money their 20th anniversary tour.

Hey, if New Kids On The Block, Take That, Boyzone, Blink 182 and Spice Girls can do it...

Trying to explain the timeline of these funky divas' departures from/rejoining with En Vogue would be an exercise in madness. And when you think about it, they only ever had that one good jam—"Don't Let Go (Love)," from the Set It Off soundtrack.

UPDATE: This just in—I've been reminded that "Give It Up Turn It Loose" was a total jam.

Also, wasn't "My Lovin' (Never Gonna Get It)" on the radio practially every five seconds from 1992 to about 2003?

You know, come to think of it, unless you broads are gonna get on stage and scissor for two hours, F you, En Vogue!!!

    F You Robbie for such a damning review of the original funky divas. Without these ladies there would have been no SWV, No Destiny's Child. None of these bitch ass ho's would have ever gotten anywhere without these ladies. Did you forget about "Whatta Man", "Giving Him Something He Can Feel", "Whatever," "Free Your Mind"!!!!! MTV VIDEO AWARD WINNER... Someone needs to brush up on their R&B skills. But yes, I would love to see them scissoring on stage.

    They were amazing when they played in the Bingo room at San Manuel Indian Casino.

    Julian, I must have freed my mind of all those illustrious achievements. I do, however, recall when two of them did Long Beach gay pride about three or four years ago. Where's THAT on your list, huh?

    Lady, yes, I thought the wonk-eyed one....no, not her, the other wonk-eyed one... did a great job passing around the macaroni when the hall ran out of bingo chips.

    and whatever lady,

    you was crying in the background at the bingo hall. you KNOW they were amazin.

    I must admit, it was indeed a rousing rendition of "Give It Up, Turn It Loose" they belted out...the sheer sonic sasstitude of which almost threatened to dislodge the Christmas lights that were Scotch-taped to the cieling tiles.

    But screw these broads...where's SWV!!? I heard one of them was on the recent season of Survivor. She needs to get her ass back in the studio with Coco and LeeLee and bust out the jamz!

    I can't support you in your hateration of girl groups, especially these funky divas!

    Granted, I was tired of their - what was it - 4th or 5th remake of Free Your Mind featuring white hip-hoppers from different European countriez, but they really do have some tight harmonies and can really really sing!!!

    They were in SF pride a couple years ago - 2 of them, and some other random chick from the ghettos of Oaklan! haha

    I do Love "Damn I Wanna Be Your Lover" by them, as well as Whatta Man, which was the opening song on a recent episode of Private Practice! What!!!

    Awww, whattabout Give It Up Turn It Loose, and No Fool No More and Too Gone Too Long and... Too Big Too Hard? ACTUALLY, the middle eight of Runaway Love, where Dawn takes it to the ceiling, that's a really good bit to have an orgasm to.

    he says demurely.

    oh yes.. they were on "don't forget the lyrics" the other day, a little older looking but damn, that new material better be damned good because they have a serious back catalog.

    Oh, you big meanie! :-p I really like EN VOGUE. They can all actually sing and that's a rare commodity these days. I've met Cindy -- she was friendly. I love me some Maxine though -- she's my favourite! :-)

    When one of them inevitably pulls a Geri and drops out before the tour, I hope they'll call Rhona (again) and offer her the slot...
