New Edition struggles with new media

Johnny Gill claimed a record producer had leaked one of his new songs onto the internet. (He used to be in New Edition, but that's not important right now. Of course it's not important, it's 2011.)

She has responded by suing him for defamation.

Nut Gill reckons he's got the perfect defence - yeah, he said it, but it was on Twitter, so it doesn't count. He explained this to TMZ:

Gill told our photog he thinks people should say what they want on Twitter, because otherwise "the courtrooms would be filled with a bunch of Twitter people complaining about things people say every day ... It's freedom of speech."
"... and I'm pretty certain there was an amendment to the constitution which made Twitter even free-er-er than other free speech, right? It's the one that allows you to issue death threats through MySpace and organise riots using Facebook without comeback, yeah?"
