Respect The Shoe Game

Ne-Yo Talib Kweli

Ne-Yo recently had a chat with Essence magazine and discussed gay rumors and R. Kelly beef:

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.”

I don’t hate R. Kelly. There won’t be no diss records—we don’t do that in R&B. Seriously, I looked up to R. Kelly as an artist, and still do, but I don’t have respect for him as a man. I was happy to join the tour. I’m a man, so I don’t disrespect other men. I would still be open to talk to him. But his not coming to me directly was blatant disrespect, because he didn’t even view me as someone important enough to show respect to by talking to me man-to-man. If you have issues with me, then be man enough to come to me personally, but instead he had his people do it and then they said it wasn’t him but that the promoters asked me to be removed from the tour and that’s b—sh–.

    Jay-z said you ain’t famous until someone calls you gay?! For Real? That’s how it works now? SMDH!!!

  • justmoi

    I don’t believe that Neyo is gay, never have. I kinda agree with what Jay said to him also, ‘cos whenever some blows up all of a sudden their sexuality is called into question.

  • Nikki

    Dude is homo…

  • Kellz

    Neyo isn’t gay. He’s just sweet. LOL! Just playin’. I think he’s very talented. With fame comes rumors. That’s life.

  • http://yahoo.com Southern Belle 225

    Neyo, we all know you sweet as sugar so please stop! “How you doin”!

  • My Words My Truth

    Dude next to him is lettin it be known that he has hit NEYO… He just right there for support like—(in the voice of michael jackson)– Tell em Neyo.. Tell em we aint gay—

  • Cage

    Lol @ Nikki… I dont know the kid… He do LOOK faggotty on the reg but can’t judge a book by its cover nowadays… Lil Wayne was caught kissin baby on multiple occasions…. Hmmm… Anyways I respect the female “shoe game” also simply cause I dont mess with hoodrats (anymore)… Raggedy footwear is a dead giveaway.

  • My Words My Truth

    He got that Steve Harvey smile goin on!! lol

  • gap & gucci

    i don’t think he’s gay

  • Psychology

    If you know too much about women’s shoes does that make you gay?…..wait let me check……yup, gay. Most guys don’t even know alot about their own dress shoes, let alone a women’s shoe! HaHa

    R.Kelly is a child molester and I will never support him. I CAN’T BELIEVE BLACK PEOPLE ARE STILL SUPPORTING A MAN WHO IS ACCUSED OF RAPING A CHILD! THAT COULD’VE BEEN YOUR OWN CHILD…..I’M DONE!!!

    Black tabloid media is so paranoid about the down low phenom that they are calling everyone gay with no proof. I’d have to agree with my boy Jay on this one.

  • Ttime

    Black men DO know about clothes and fashion, and that alone, does not make him gay.

    I think it is a good thing when a man has fashion sense and dresses well as long as that is not how he defines himself. As long as fashion sense remains in it’s proper place and doesn’t make the person materialistic or feminine, then I believe that it is fine.

  • YUP...I'm blessed

    Neyo…i don’t care if you are gay or not. just keep putting out good music.period.
