MediaTakeOut.com has learned that Ne-Yo made an interesting statement in this month's issue of Essence Magazine. When asked what he thought about speculation that he may be a closeted homosexual - this is his response:
Honestly, when I first heard that there were rumors out there about me being gay I thought, Wow someone must really hate me.
There’s nothing wrong with being gay, but I just couldn’t understand why someone would make up lies like that. I remember speaking to Jay-Z about it and he was like, ‘Look, man you haven’t made it until someone says you’re gay.”
Okay, so because I can respect a woman’s shoe game, and not to mention that I’ve bought a few pairs of shoes in the past for the women in my life, that makes me gay? That’s hilarious.”
Let that man do his sexy love with the things he do.No really Ne-yo you need to stop that for real.
If he walk like a duck, form his lips like a duck in eery *** picture he take, shop for shoes like a duck..that mu'*** is a DUCK damnit!
I like Ne-yo a lot. It's something that I kinda get that vibe that he is kinda....ya know. But I try to look past it because he's really talented. I mean it doesn't matter if he was ***, doesn't affect his talent...but you know how the hip hop community is.
He is a certified ***!!!!
Neyo is ***..........he is jus those type of men that like taking care of themselves....and whoeva they wit too....and i don't see nothin wrong wit that
yall get yall stuff so late sometimes *** that was on [SPAM] like a weekago come mtop get on yall job yall my favorite site but yall r slower then eva............
Oo Ok that explains it all...but my feet are still lonely.. ne-yo.. can u buy me some shoes sweetheart
he look *** in all his pics idk ne-yo
idk i alwayz thought he was *** he got that vibe
neyo is *** dat boi wearin lip stick he *** dats all im gonna say he ***
BED STUY BROOKLYN'S FINEST MOVE OVER PAPOOSE
Maybe when he shops, he asks the sales clerk advice on what women are into, that could be what he means,it is just like shopping for perfume for your wife or girlfriend!
Don't we women do the same for our men when we shop?
But still....that vibe of his.....maybe he is BI
Sounds like a case of 'foot fetish' if you ask me!
Didn't ya'll see that episode of '*** in the City, when Charlotte met a guy who works at a shoe store and he was giving her free shoes as long as she let him play with her feet? That's why I'm going to New York.
Ne-yo ain't ***, he just love sucking toes after a woman gets done wearing them sexy, strappy stilletos. Fellas know, that they get on charge watching a woman cross their path with some pretty azz, smooth as silk legs, with some big thighs with a skirt or dress and then when they look at her feet, so working them heels with her toes painted (I does that).
Me and Ne-yo? We'd be the best shoe shopping buddies! I'd wear them shoes well cause I'm pretty and my feet!
I think it's *** to spend all of your time talking about who might be ***.
I Think He Is Indeed ***....He Look Like E.T...Lol
*** dude. I think he is a lot how u doin? IDK
FIrst off, i read that *** intereview, i didn't see anything in there talking about how he love shopping for womens shoes...so is MTO making *** up?............... i think so
Yeah, Jay told him that... then he left the room and Jay said "I tell all the suspect *** guys that".
He bought those shoes for his lady friends...she can wear em when she comes over his house...till then, he just breaking em in for her.
come on Neyo just admit you're ***! I love you and everything but just come out of the closet for crying out loud..I'll be a fan regardless but dude, stop hiding it..
THATS LIKE SAYING, I'M NOT HUNGRY, I JUST WANNA SNACK.... NE-YO IS BASICALLY SAYING I'M NOT *** BUT I WANNA GRAB DAT DUDE BUT OVER THERE....
HE IS SO NOT *** THATS JUST LIKE MEN GOIN BUY PADS FOR THEY LADY
WHO SHOULD CARE, DAMM GIVE HIM A BREAK..
I don't think he's ***.He just has a more feminine side.
Nothing wrong with that.
*** i can respect a man that can go shoe shopping for that special some1 in his life. Whats so *** about that???? I ain't mad @ ne-yo. stop hatin' on him!!!
you know people say the same thing about me but i always had a girl.....! i was the first of our class to hit the sexy girl ever to walk the halls of surrattsvills high school class of 2004 . so you know what i say ne-yo ***'em.....lol
MTO just because yall got some *** writers back there don't mean Neyo *** too. I hate when ppl wanna find some1 just like them plz stop.
I WOULD NEVER GO AND BUY A WOMAN SHOES. I'D GIVE HER THE MONEY TO BUY THEM BUT TO ACTUALLY PLAN TO GO BUY A WOMAN SHOES IS CRAZY!!!!!!!
Ne-Yo is my boy! He's a fantastic songwriter, performer and singer all in one...a triple threat if you will. But, whenever I see pics of him and he has that *** pucker to his lips looking like he thinking he "fierce"......it *** sure makes me wonder. It almost seems like he tries hard to NOT look ***...
Hey Ne-Yo...I like shoes....*crickets chirping*
Do your thing. Be who you are or some *** is going to black mail you.
So MTO ya'll misleading headline states that Neyo shops for women's shoes, and only then in the article he says he has shopped for women's shoes FOR THE WOMEN IN HIS LIFE! I swear MTO ya'll need to step up and stop with the lyin' a.z.z. headlines!
he need to shop his sister
a new face
neyo ur fruity
thats y people play ya
and yall females wonder why they got sooooooooo many DL NYGGAS out here, why cant a man be respected for what he says? The way i see it, yall thinkin he *** is just creatin more attention on him which is turning into dollas, so neyo and every other BLACK MAN yall drag thru the mud. THANK MTO, the *** staff are BIG fans
Whats wrong with a man who likes to shop for women people??.....I think its endering....
NEYO..........I LIKE SHOES !!!!
its not even about him buying the *** shoes..that's not *** whatsover. its all the little things Neyo does that is ***..he is just too *** feminine..sometimes you just gotta read between the lines..like i said i love Neyo regardless,he just needs to quit denying it
*** OR NOT I LOVE NEYO I THINK HE IS VERY TALENTED AND HE IS GONNA GO VERY FAR IN HIS CAREER SO STOP HATIN HATERZ LOVE YA NEYO OH YOU CAN BUY ME SHOES ANYTIME !!!!!!
....RIGHT...RIGHT....WAS HE JUMPING ON A COUCH SCREAMIN, " IM IN LOVE WITH KATIE HOLMES" TOO....I SMELL A DO DO CHASER......
i like shoes to honey call momma ok
MTO your title is SO misleading. Him saying that does not indicate that he's ***. A LOT of men love to see a woman with some nice shoes & will even buy her some. I have had a man buy shoes for me before and he was far from ***..Ya'll need to stop for real..Have other proof other than that. Please..
Idk Ne-yo...he always been questionable, he's cd was good though...jus keep playin off...i think he's bi
i don't have a problem wit a man buyin me shoes...as long as they cute we good to go!!!
*** as blade hunni!
Agree with Fine Ya AZZ. You are so right, we as a community are so quick to label a man ***/bi because he doesn't fit the mold or critera of a masculine black male.SMH And also agree with the statement with this epedimic of down low men it's because of the our closed minded pea size brains can't comprehend a mens softer side. What's funny is that the men you least suspect are *** are proably on the dl and one thing a dl brother is good at is misleading and disqusing his true idenity. You would rarely have any indication or suspicion that man has a double life unless you walked on him getting his *** rammed through or vice versa.
Oh man whats wrong with everyone?? He has a foot fetish. ***! I had a few ex's that LOVED buying me shoes (That didn't bother me any, I have a shoe/handbag thing goin' on). It's not the shoe itself... It's how the woman looks in it. That's the turn on to men like that. Get off Ne-yo, Leave that man alone.
NOW WE KNOW HE LOOK LIKE HE CAN TAKE A NICE D@#*** down his mouth with those sexy lips!!!!!!!
IS IT JUST ME OR DO I SMELL HATERS CUZ THAT'S ALL YOU GUYS ARE..IS HATERS
LEAVE HIM ALONE(HE'S NOT ***)
AND *MTO* YOU GUYS NEED TO STOP IT ON SOME REAL
CUZ SOME OF THE SH*T YOU GUYS PUT ON HEAR IS FAKE
UM...OKAY I GUESS. IT'S WHATEVER. I DON'T CARE IF YOU *** OR STRAIGHT NE-YO, JUST PLEASE KEEP PUMPING OUT THE HITS. *** THE REST OF THAT ***-ISH.
Add my music page and show ya girl some love ;)
yea iight and I put on a pair of panties this morning but im not *** lol
U A UGLY BIGG WHOP HEADED RICH *** ***
ok let me clear things up for a few of you. As a person who used to live in a city where there are ALOT of *** Men, especially *** BLACK MEN, there's a few things the rest of you just don't seem to get or understand. We have a disproportionate number of Black Males being raised by WOMEN! So of course they are going to know some things about what WOMEN LIKE. I have my share of *** males friends of all shapes, sizes, & colours & trust NE-YO IS NOT ***. I get REALLY tired of our brothas who actually CARE about how they dress, act, or present themselves being called ***, & TRUST NE-YO is smart because ANY lady he is with, he has NO trouble spoiling her or buying her gifts because he TAKES THE TIME to get to know her & has a GENUINE interest in what she likes. Oh & I agree, keep pumping out the hits because I love NE-YO & listen to at least 3 songs that he sings or that were written by him a day & with a iPod that TRULY has 10,000 songs in it, that's NOT an easy achievement!!!
@semisweet, that is true of where I used to live for sure, the dudes who were the most "straight-looking" were the ones that ALWAYS turned out to be *** ***-THUGS lol. You know... the running backs, linebackers, Defensive ends, TIGHT (lol pun intended) ends etc.
Okay, NeYo is *** but that has nothing to do with him liking women's shoes. Instead, it has to do with him sucking ***. Let's not get lost in the sauce. A man can like/buy women's shoes all day--nobody really cares about that. It's the taking it up the *** that people begin to question...
NeYo, you go gurl!!
Suck on it!!
"Maybee that decisonn was a misstakkkee.."
OK, I won't speculate on his orientation, but MTO you are jumping to conclusions and possibly taking his comment out of context.I mean come on, what man hasn't bought his girl a clothing article or even a pair of shoes???? Uhh, okay the shoes is pushin' it;)
*** *** Gaaaaay.
When I kissed him I tasted the rainbow.
Y'all need to leave NEYO alone! Who cares if he is ***? Does that take away from his talent?
I don't know about every1 else but I like a man who knows how to shop for his woman theres nothing *** about that. I would rather sometimes take an opinion from my man on what looks sexy on me than a woman.
For example is a man *** for being a hairstylist? no, even though there are *** men who do but I would rather have a man do my hair knowing that his opinion will be honest according to what looks good and what don't because sometimes you can't trust women in that department always and thats from experience.
Those lips hmmmm...
Ok, so either way he's either shopping to WEAR those shoes or he has a foot/shoe fetish? Sounds like he has a fetish... he a freak, tee hee!
he writes nice songs.He needs to come out the closet already.
Come on people you can't blame Neyo for being G.A.Y., because according to my ethernet cord his momma breast fed him from his fathers P.E.***.I.S. "This milk is not only good for your bones and teeth, but is very high in protein." So sucking D.I.C.***. is all he knows. Hahahaaaaa
Ok Neyo is not ***...I have a lil crush on him...he look like a freak...I would freak him and he dont have to buy me shoes cuz I luv my dunks!!!
NE-YO IS THAT DUD ONE OF THE BEST SONG WRITERS OF THE DAY....
THE CHEAPEST WAY TO TRAVEL
What does his sexual preference have to do with anything? People bought millions of Luther, Prince and Michael Jackson records knowing that they were all ***, bisexual or just plain ole' freaks. Get real black people, the bottom line is that in spite of your purported hatred of *** the reality is that 99.9% of you have at least one openly *** person in your family and several more closeted ones (male & female) that you don't know about. So get real and let the hatred go. We're not going anywhere!
I dont think he is ***, he just got a foot fetish or something like that.
I never thought he was ***, but then again I dont pay to much attention to people unless they're right in my face...and my hubby buys me shoes, if he sees a pair that he thinks are ugly, then he'll get them for me because we have opposite taste- what's cute to me aint cute to him (I guess thats how it should be)- LOL
LOL he prollie got a foot fetish!!
its ok to buy women shoes ne-yo, but do not accidently slip and fall into some dudes booty hole and it be on the net...cuz right now i'm on ur side...if u make me look bad...
He is not *** PEOPLE! ***....leave the brotha alone.
Who is he trying to convince? Himself?
he can buy me some shoes..***
he is not ***.. he got a kid right?
If I were a *** celeb, I'd refrain from answering any personal questions about my private life. It is no one's business and should remain that way. A lot of *** people want these celebs to come out of their closets to justify all of them. Oh, he's like me and is defending me. NOT. Get some self-esteem.
This was in bad taste of Essence.
I think he is sexy. I don't mind my man buying me shoes, and if he is *** who are we to judge.
IF I WAS NE-YO I WOULDNT HAVE EVEN SAID THAT CAUSE HE KNOW PPL IS GON' TAKE THAT COMMENT AND RUN W/ IT. I GUESS IT WOULD SOUND BETTA IF HE SAID HE TOOK HIS GIRL TO PICK OUT SOME SHOES. I CANT SEE MY DUDE IN A SHOE STORE "DO U GOT THIS IN A SIZE 8" LOL BUT I LOVE NE-YO, *** OR NOT
I Love his music regardless of the rumors
I CANT EVEN HATE ON THE MAN HE DOING BIGGER THINGS THAN ME, LOL
Until I can get an explanation for why his gat *** lips gotta always look so puckered up and ready to kiss azzzzz I REMAIN CONFUSED AS HECK DWL
I STILLL DONT SEE HOW HE IS ***.....
ALL HE SAID WAS HE RESPECT ARE SHOE GAME AND THAT HE HAS BOUGHT SHOES FOR [[HIS]] WOMEN IN THE PAST......
I LOVE NE-YO...HE'S TALENTED AND WRITES ALOT OF HITS FOR MANY PPL...
WAT DOES IT MATTER IF HE *** OR STRAIGHT....
HE STILLL DOIN IT BIG....
BIG UP^S TO NE-YO
WHO CARES OF HE IS *** OR *** - THE MAN OFFERS THE PUBLIC HIS MUSIC THATS ALL - THE REST IS *** WE DONT EVEN NEED TO BE WORRIED ABOUT !!!! SOME OF Y'ALL NEED TO GET A LIFE OF UR OWN AND STOP JUDING PEOPLE - HATERS !
Does buying Nikes or Rockports make him heterosexual?
ok if hes isn't *** and there are so many *** people in the industry, then really who is gonna come out and admit it...i'm sorry, i don't believe u neyo...love your music though...
ps what straight male would write a song with "you must not know bout me" in the hook...lol
Ne Yo aint ***, but his Boyfriend is!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey Ne-yo.....How You doin!!!!!!
Awwww yall made it seem like he was buyin for hisself....TRIPPIN lol
maybe he is confused......cause those lips are to big not to be doing something with em!!!
SMALL MINDED BLACK FOLKS!!!! LOL...IF HE IS SO WHAT!!!!!
Yall are ALL *** stupid see thats why i cant stand Media Takeout, you guys are always turning certain things into something that does not involve what it is about! I don't even know why i'm here... guess I'm defending Ne-Yo and like he said he aint tryna hear that ***, and thats old news (rumors) so keep HATIN' *** lo lifes naw j/*** but you guys try being nice for a while... i expect some of that *** from people who aint got a life and pick on people to make themselves feel better!
he is sooo sexy in that picture and no *** wyas son!!!
first i don't beilieve he said that second if he did he's *** 4 real
AS MUCH AS I DISLIKE NE-YO BUT COME ON MTO. THAT DON'T MEAN THE MAN IS *** FOR SHOPPING FOR A FEMALE. I DO BELIEVE HE GOT A LITTLE SUGAR IN HIS TANK THOUGH LMAO. CRYBABY AS BYTCH! DON'T LIKE IT, SUE ME!
NE-YO LOOK LIKE HE CAN SUCK A GOOD D*CK THOUGH. HE PROBABLY SUCKING JAY Z D*CK. HE ALWAYS RUNNING TELLING HIM EVERY *** THING. NE-YO MAN UP YOU PUNK!
YOU ARE A COMPLETE IDIOT! JUST BECAUSE A GUY HAVE A CHILD, THEY CAN STILL BE ***. YOU STUPID F*CK FACE!
He says he's not *** but what is his song Love Migrain abt he says something abt tell *** him that someone had a wife ??? what is that abt sounds to me like some *** *** and that is disappointing cuz i like ne-yo but something is fishy abt that.
