Yesterday MediaTakeOut.com told you that R&B singer Ne-Yo broke down on stage like a little girl and started crying. So why did he cry – was it over Michael Jackson, or a family tragedy – NO!! Apparently he had a tummy ache.
Here’s Ne-Yo’s response to our story:
Basically, I have an issue with not knowing when to say enough is enough, so last night in Manchester, my body said it for me.
I got on stage energized and ready to go, even tho for the last 5 days I’ve been dealing with a sinus infection. I paid it no real mind, and kept on going, like I always do. My voice couldn’t take it. From the first song I knew something was wrong. I shoulda stopped there, but I come from a school where no matter what, the show must go on. It wasn’t until about 4 songs in that I came to the painful realization that my voice was done, literally nothing left, and that I would have to stop the show…
I’ve never had to stop a show, never dreamed I’d ever have to. So when I had to walk out on that stage and tell 12,000 of the people responsible for making me who I am that I could not perform for them, it literally broke my heart.
I cried harder than I have in a very long time with no shame whatsoever.
Who knew Ne-Yo as so sensitive … actually … we kinda suspected it …
Crying because of a stomach ache? What an idiot! Beyonce fell down a flight of stairs and managed to perform WITHOUT moaning or CRYING. Beyonce is more of a man than this fool.
Tears and emotions like THAT dont come from a grown *** MAN with *** SINUS issues
U'da been better off saying that U really miss MJ
Ok. So let me get this straigt.
Neyo is being talked about because he care about his fans? Because he was disappointed that he couldn't deliver on his word?
I'm sorry. Someone help me, but why is this so hard to understand?
i was sick last week, and i didn't cry. maybe he sick with somthin else
I guess I proud of him to admit, that his health is more important.
hey, in the industry you are pushed, he should of just gave a messed up show and answer to it later, than crying on stage and embarrassing himself
Neyo ia a great artist.....BUUUUT....you was not crying like that over no *** sickness!!!!! i think that lil fiancee of his is gettin tired of that bold azz head...HA!
fa g. got
hey, i get a lil emotional once a month. i guess his hormones got the best of him.
i ain't never cried while sick.
he's still ugly either way
Cry baby. Over a sinus infection??? No.
HELL TO THE NAWWWW...STOP LYING...I LOVE YOU NE-YO BUT 4REAL DUDE...YOU COULDA CAME BETTER THAN THAT. I WOULD'VE BELIEVED AN MJ STORY THAN THIS BS...
TELL THE TRUTH...IT'LL COME OUT SOON..
I KNEW IT, YA *** ASS!!! FIX YOUR BRA NEXT TIME, THAT MIGHT WORK.
MTO WHY YALL MESISNG WITH NEYO HE IS NOTHING BUT A GOOD STRAIGHT GUY WITH PROBLEMS..UNLIKE THIS OTHER ATTENTION *** LIKE KANYE AND DIDDY
Leave that man alone, He's Human!
VISIT MY MUSIC PAGE! ADD ME!
AND ON TWITTER HE SAID HE'S TIRED OF PEOPLE QUESTIONING HIS MANHOOD! IF YOU GONNA TELL IT THEN TELL IT ALL!!!!! 4u2.com
Neyo response Failed..guess his boyfriend dump him, ya that's the real reason.lol
That's not fair to people who pay their hard earned money to see him either. Those people should have got a full refund, real talk.
I don't understand why he couldn't go to the doctor or get some medication for his "sickness" if you are constantly having a sinus infection then you should have some type of medication for it. Is it us but we just realized that he only apologized to the people in Manchester and NOT to the ones he walked out on at the Mercy club in Norwich(cause he walked out on them,too)they paid more then the people did in Manchester. www.theyandm.com
MTO why didn't you post the whole thing you ***? He wasn't crying because he was sick. He was crying because he couldn't finish the show and felt like he was disappointing some of the most important people in his life, his fans. He also told MTO to GO TO HELL! Well done Ne-Yo!
Neyo it really doesnt matter WHY. There is NOOOO excuse u arE MAD ***!!!! u could have de that ish backstage whee no one was lookin.. since when do ppl cry like tht cuz they sick mmhhhmmm Neyo HOW YOU DOIN (wendy williams voice)
LEAVE NEYO ALONE EVERYBODY CRIES!!!!!
it dont matter tha explanation, neyo is a clown...wowww neyo!!! man up...i thought he lost a loved one or something..
I told y'all his big azz head was hurtin. Y'all know Neyo don't have headaches like regular people with normal size heads
neyo know *** well he frontin
the only kind of sick that would make be cry like that would be the news that i had AIDS
Yeah, MTO - now you got the real story behind his years - are you ashamed for saying he was crying like a "B"? I'm sure you're not, are you ever????
I'M STILL TRYING TO UNDERSTAND WHAT A SINUS INFECTION HAS TO DO WITH HIS VOICE......
I believe him and I love him no matter what
It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you
***/*** the haters..
LOL @ vanityrose...I feel u on that! But I have really bad sinuses & whn I gt a sinus infection my voice leaves completely fr up to 3 days so I understand where he's coming from...I mean, I don't cry but I get frustrated. Follow me...Twitter.com/SuperficiallyMe
I don't know about this one.but hey if he felt like crying let the man cry.I guess it would make him feel better
these stars are amazing, if he was so sick, *** he be resting up instead of immediately and directly-no publicist responding 2 internet gossip? And it was the ugly cry not just a trickle..bet his boytoy dumped him..rihanna, u will get good luv songs 4 the album now
Leave my Neyo alone.
Yeeeaahh! That's not the truth. But I'm sure the real reason will come out... Soon!
a[SPAM] thats sweet
Ok...do these people get their money back though? I would be hot...but it's understandable.
Check out my Youtube page!
ARE U *** SERIOUS? lmfao
I can understand that, he´s human.
That's NOT a reason for a person, especially a man to cry. This man is *** with no SHAME. And the way he cried too.
@ Moneyhungry: you got that right! Ne-yo must not had been too sick to read MTO and other internet gossip blogsites and tell us bloggers to go to hell after saying that he was too sick to perform in Manchester.I smell b.s too. I bet that Ne-yo's shrimp eyes will read this thread and may cuss us out.
never had to stop a show? sooo... what about the show where you walked out onto stage and said that u were a "business man" and the "business wasn't right" and so you left??? what happened then huh???? sick again????? no tears that time!!!
He a sensitive little ***! Lol I laughed good and hard off that *** all day yesterday! He a *** fruitcake! Men don't cry when they sick!
give the boy a *** break ...
Whatever He Says...
What! A sinus infection? Umph!!
Drink Ginger Ale...*** start movin! lol
awwww....my ***. id want my money back. entertainers have gone on stage & tore it up w/ more than bad sinus & a "tummy ache". he on some *** made ***.
Awww well if thats all it was then why yall make it sound like he was cryin for no reason? This shows Neyo really cares about his fans and what he does ima pray for u!
Leave my baby alone MTO!
Sinus infection??? LMAO!! If he says so....
That is sooooo ***! What a ***!
lol, this answer makes no sense, in fact it makes him look like a wuss. So he was crying because he couldn't continue to sing???? lol
I thought it would've been over Mike, at least it would make more sense, lol, well whatever. I don't believe this, lol
Kick a man while he's SICK
"Who knew Ne-Yo as so sensitive … actually … we kinda suspected it …"
MTO, STFU! Fred, uless you have female news posters, you are as *** you're trying to make NEYO out to be! You're the same person that posts"news stories" about how big Bow Wow's *** is, saying "WELL HELL-LO!!! Ladies GET IN HERE … " on male eye-candy posts, and talking about which females celebrities are "Fab Chicas".
Like I said before, me thinks yall protest too d@mn much. Yall are trying to call out and demean [assumed] heterosexual male celebrities in an attempt to convince yourselves that you're not ***.
Even if the man is 'in the closet' why the h3ll is it any of your business? Unless he's trying to date one of your females loved ones, stay out of his business.
WELL I RESPECT NE-YO AND KNOW HE IS A GENUINE INDIVIDUAL, HE ALWAYS GIVE A BOMB PERFORMANCE AND I AM NOT JUDGMENTAL TOWARDS WHY HE CRIED, HE IS HUMAN!
OH YEA MTO! A SINUS INFECTION IS NOT A "TUMMYACHE" U *** IDIOTS! GOT ***, DID ANY OF YALL *** ATTEND SCHOOL?
Boring Weekend.... Yawn
DONE READ IT AT [SPAM].COM
Ne-Yo's crying because he's going through an IDENTITY CRISIS--LIL' BOY doesn't know WHAT he wants to be--tranny, ***, hermaphrodite, androgynous or all of the above. His soul is hurting. Needs to come out of the closet and STAY OUT.
Boo hoo! Call the WHAAAmbulance!! =..(
Well he wasn't crying about being sick, he was crying for disappointing his fans.
theres me thinkin dat some1 died
see mto it was a reason he was crying , not just because he was a boitch as u claim .
awe how sweet
ITS OK NE-YO U STILL LOVED
Want some cheese with that whine?
he's a beyotch. thats what they do - cry over stomach aches.
DAMM, THE EXPLANATION SERVES NO PURPOSE.
Biotch or not, he's still one of the best performers today! You'll never see him coming on stage w/ his pants down by his ankles, and 3 to 10 unknown nikkaz singing back up!
I WOULD OF DONE THE SAME PLUS I HEARD SINUS INFECTIONS ARE NO JOKE...
OR I WOULD OF POSTPONED MY SHOW TIL IM BETTER...
He knows how the business industry operates! I love Ne-yo.
There is nothing wrong with a man crying. He could have made a better crying face though. LOL
The people calling him a biotch probably either date a woman beater or attract women beaters. Yall are dumb!
yeah oh ok
He didn't have to offer no explanation for his crying! I still see nothing wrong with a man crying, and the people who do and calls him a *** has major issues and must have some serious problems themselves...
I don't think he had a sinus ache; I think he had an *** ache! Or did he just get a phone call from his boyfriend saying that he's no longer attracted to his booty?
Ok Ne-Yo there is a WAY to do things. I am not going to look at you as less than a man but c'mon sweetie!! Who cries because they are sick. I understand that you don't want to disappoint your fans but you didn't have to CRY... ESPECIALLY ON STAGE IN FRONT OF THE WORLD!!! You could have simply made an announcement with a sincere apology that you were too sick to complete the show. NO TEARS NECESSARY!! Follow it up with an arrangement for the people to see your next show and then get on stage and KILL IT on the next one!! Again.. NO TEARS NECESSARY!!
Amen, FloridaEvans!! LMAO; You should take it on the road!
TUMMY ACHE OR PERIOD CRAMPS ? U CHOOSE
this topic is so rude and demeaning, but i guess you can't expect more from a blog site. NE-YO IS AN AMAZING LIVE PERFORMER. when it comes to singing and dancing he is THE BEST OF THE NEXT GENERATION. he hits his notes PERFECTLY and is a joy to watch. now with that much dedication put into his work i'm sure he was heartbroken that he dissapointed his fans.
For the last time I will say that doesn't make him any less of a man but a passionate performer that I would gladly give my money to.
JUST ANOTHER *** WHO NEEDS TO COME OUT
*** NE-YO, YOU COULDN'T HAVE THOUGHT OF ANOTHER LIE BETTER THAN THAT ONE.
Aint no shame in his game lol gone head then neyo *** them *** that got some to say bout u cryin lol wit cho talented azz
I really love. Neyo's music so what ever he's going through. I hope he gets through it and keep making good music ,and brush off the haters. No one knows what celebs go through behind closed doors. So no one should pass judgement on him hang in there rooting for you.
WHATEVER! THAT NICCA WAS CRYIN' B/C ONE OF HIS DOWN LOW JUMP OFFS DUMPED HIM...GTFOOH NEYO
WE KNOW WHAT'S UP!!!
aww, poor guy, I still would have wanted a refund
NE-YO IS MOST DEFIANTELY ONE OF THE VERY BEST ALL AROUND TODAY. i SAW HIM IN CONCERT AND HE WAS BEYOND ALL MY EXPECTATIONS AND MORE. THE MAN IS A TRIPLE THREAT..SERIOUS SINGER, SERIOUS DANCER AND SERIOUS WRITER. WHO FREAKIN CARES THAT HE SHOWED UNEXPLAINED EMOTIONS..WHATEVER THE REASON MAY BE...DOES IS REALLY TOUCH THE GENIUS OF HIS WORK AND HIS DEDICATION AS A PERFECTIONIST. HOW IS IT THAT CRYING MAKE YOU ***???AND A BIGGER MESSAGE EVEN IF HE WAS *** HOW IS IT BEING *** MEAN YOU ARE WEAK. HE IS A MAN...*** OR NOT HE IS A MAN...HE IS HUMAN LOOK AT THE WORK NOT THE EMOTION STOP THE BASHING PLS.
I THINK HE WAS READY TO COME OUTTA DA CLOSET BUT WORRIED WHAT HIS FANS WOULD SAY AND FREAKED OUT AND STARTED TO CRY. NEYO WE LOVE YOU ANY WAY DONT WORRY DONT SAY ANYTHING WE GET THE PICTURE
It almost sounds like he's true to his trade, but it really sounds like a fake excuse too. I mean what black rich man cries on stagae because his sinus infection was bothering him. That's weak just say what's on yo' mind bro~ but all the crying what up? really?
Still love NeYo and I will still support his music.
GO SEE A DOCTOR NICCA!!!
I thought his granny had died. Sinus infection? what would he do if he had a baby? negro please..grow up....we all have pain
NEYO IS A *** QUEEN AND WHY HE BOTHERS TO HIDE IT I DONT KNOW EVERYBODY KNOWS
we all knew he was sugary sweet anyway so whatz the big deal...
I always thought that Ne-Yo was ***. It is soooo obvious!! I don't care who he dates, marries, whatever! I would bet a million dollars on that one. I also know that he has to hide it for some reason, the entertainment industry does not take to well with R & B male singers being openly ***. As to why he is crying, that is another story!! I have had major sinus infections, so I know how they can be, but I would have just cancelled the show instead of trying to perform.
Okay he cried...So??? What's the big deal?? Had it been a woman then it wouldn't make such a big deal. Society (especially the black community) makes us think if a man cries then he's weak. Well, it doesn't make him weak..it makes him human.
Not sure if this is the real reason he was crying or not. If so then that's great that he cares about his fans so much. But whatever the reason he was crying for doesn't matter. He cried! Big deal. Get over it!!
shows he is dedicated 2 his fans dats cool but neyo man up im sure ur fans understand when ur body cant take it, u can reschedule ur show no worries but was he really cryin cuz of that hmmm
Yeah right! His boyfriend must of left him
You are to be commended on your honesty... it is like these entertainers are possessed by their trade dude take a break you don't have to be a work a holic your health is more important. Keep ya head up Neyo hope ya feel better
I knew it!! i BEEN said he was ***!!
I luv neyo he could cry on my shoulder anyday......
So what - contrary to the BS myth out here, men do cry, too.
Musta been cramping or something. Whatever, take it like a man.
