Here’s the email that has been circulating around the net this weekend about Go-Go. Supposedly he is coming out of the closet in the October 2006 issue of Essence. I’ll believe it when I read it for myself.
Singer Ne-yo Announces He Is Gay
Essence Magazine August 23,2006
The newly famed singer/songwriter has came out of the closet and announced that he is gay. The multi-platinum recording artist sat down for the October issue of Essence Magazine last week and announced the shocking news stating, “Yes, I am gay, and I have always been.” After several internet rumors have been circulating around the internet. He also said, “You now this world we live in is full of judgement, resulting in one of the reasons why it took me so long to come out of the closet.” Earlier this month, a man by the name of Derrick Johnson claimed that he had an intimate relationship with the singer during there teen years in high school. He also said that for months the singer and Def Jam has been trying to pay him to keep quiet over the ordeal. Worrying that it would destroy his image. Ne-yo responds saying, that the relationship did occur and he is no longer ashamed of saying that he was deeply in love. Reciting “That situation was what inspired me to write the song Unfaithful. But no one knew it was actually about myself, and our relationship.” He told Essence that he doesn’t care anymore, he was tired of living a lie and is ready to come clean. Quoting, “the music industry can either except me for who I am, or desert me.” The full interview with the magazine is expected to hit stands mid-October.
You guys are straight falling in line with the 50 Cent over-exposure blacklash. I didn’t hear anybody complain about that beat when eskay posted that mixtape. Check out track 6 on Big Mike’s This is Why I’m Hot.
I don’t like 50 now because he does a shitty job of singing instead of rapping. First album classic. Seriously, tracks 9 through 16 on Massacre were classic. The rest was like a prophecy of shit. First verse on Game’s “Hate It or Love It” was classic. Everything else since mediocre at best, but mostly crappy.
Then he comes with a decent song over a Fergie/Will.I.Am beat and you guys call it the worse thing ever without giving it a chance. Man, that “Paper Chaser” and “Misdemeanor” were crap. His “put em up” on Banks song was annoying. But this song is decent. Not great. Not bad. Decent. Which is an improvement for $0.50. I’m just recognizing what is real.
