Y'all, that email you guys are sending around claiming Ne-Yo came out to an ESSENCE reporter is a hoax that's been circulating since 2006. Please Google if you need verification. We have enough undercover fags running around the industry without incorrectly labeling Ne-Yo as one. Until someone comes up with proof that he is gay, I say let that man live!

By the way, Ne-Yo has a girlfriend who is very devoted to him. She's one of his back up dancers and she is very nice. If you go to my galleries and look in the Ne-Yo/Compound album you will see them all over each other. Remember, if you don't see it on CNN, it isn't news!

  • MsAmour22

    Whateva. He's talented as hell but gay as a $3 bill.

  • MRSJONESK

    Okay, I love me some Ne-Yo!! I don't believe the hype anyway. I agree, let the man be goodness!

    Welcome back! Now that that is out of the way

    I know you are not referring to the same back up dancer that was giving him a blow job on those side kick pics (hey ne-yo!!)

    but i'm sayin'...lol we turning jump offs into wifey's now

  • MRSJONESK

    I don't care if he's gay or not. Just keep making music that's good and soulful. I love to watch him dance in his videos. The only reason I listen to Plies song is because of Ne-Yo singing the hook.

  • MsAmour22

    HOW U DOIN' Ne-Yo...A'right

  • MRSJONESK

    Hey Necole,
    Keep up the good work girl. I like reading your site. I'm a SR fan to the core girl!

  • LovelyLady

    ^^ banned IN 4,3,2,1 LLS

  • MRSJONESK

    Yeah they are turning jump offs into wifey's look at LisaRaye.

  • http://www.myspace.com/iyonah iyonah

    Lol @ ^^^

    I enjoyNeyo as an artist, his personal life is his business - girlfriend or not he def has some suspect occurences. It doesn't change that his music is thorough.

  • http://www.myspace.com/iyonah iyonah

    And YES .. finally some new post!

  • karaz

    LMAO. Sandra you're up to your usual shenanigans! You know good and well that Neyo's lip gloss is POPPING!

  • mizzdallas

    Yeah thats an old rumor!! next post please!!!

  • wiggy2272003

    Glad you are up and running

    CNN Headline

    Businesses across the country reported an unprecedented productive workweek but for some unexplained reason the Fridays numbers returned to normal.

  • http://WWW.MYSPACE.COM/BDSTCHK2006 BLACKBARBIE404

    I GOT THAT EMAIL AS WELL AND DID A GOOGLE SEARCH. I FOUND OUT THAT IT'S NOT THE EDITOR OF ESSENCE MAGAZINE. THEY NEVER HAD AN EMPLOYEE WITH THAT NAME.

    GAY OR NOT, KEEP MAKING GOOD MUSIC!

    __________________________________________________________

    LOL...you didn't know?!!!

    Sandy...I highly doubt CNN would announce Ne-yo's orientation (for that matter, anyone's sexual orientation!) on their show. Ne-yo still suspect in my eyes, and have been since he came out. Sorry. Lubs his music though!

  • kitty4shigady

    see necole took the words right out of my mouth about the back up dancer. I think neyo may go both ways.

  • BostonGirl20002

    Please leave NE-Yo alone. I know there are plenty of DL borthers out there sadly enough but please leave the few that are not alone. For GOD sakes leave it alone.....Until we here that man say that he is let's just be happy with our original thoughts that he is not.

  • bloggergirlz

    neyo is guy (or VERY suspect), i don't care, i love his music and he can keep hitting whomever he wants to if it helps w/ his creativity...yall know that girl is a beard...

  • SlimA

    Sandra,
    How much is Ne-Yo paying you to tell this lie? Tell the truth and stay in Chuuurch. However, I love him as an artist no matter what his preference is.

  • Kymystry

    We've been feening for a Meal and Auntie threw us a Cracker instead .. and it's Not even a Ritz Cracker ..

    Come ON Auntie ... give us something to sink our teeth into ... lol

  • kwallace577

    yeah i wanna talk about kwame and his million $$ fine. the wife, the mistress, his mama carolyn. anything but ne-yo who used to be an all out queen.

  • LovelyLady

    LMFAO @ Kym

  • bklynchick

    Welcome back sandra!!! I missed you!!

    Ne-yo has gay tendencies but I think he is straight. Love his music though.

  • http://www.myspace.com/iyonah iyonah

    Kym you a trip talking about a cracker not even Ritz ... lol ... that wasfunny

  • DivaMama

    I feel you, Kym, but I guess we have to start somewhere!

    Maybe he's just extremely metro but straight?

    (suppressing giggles from my own lie)

  • Sharonda

    I'm convinced...

  • katgirl33

    Hey I heard about that.....somebody told me he got two songs on his new album, where he is referring to guys instead of girls (as men singers usually do).....

    I have to admit that I haven't listened to the songs yet (apparently it's on You Tube or something) that were sent to me....I might check them out.....

  • Amulet

    Whatever.

    If you look gay, your ass is gay!

  • goat76

    Too many fine women in the world for a nigga to want another nigga..........Killyoself

  • goat76

    and P.S. I love Glazed Doughnuts

    She can be just a beard!! He looks so fruity!!

  • Kymystry

    goat ..I feel the same way ... too many women .. shrugs

    who am I to say .. i like .. no I love Dyck .. and I just feel like it's a waste of dyck ... shrugs again

  • http://myspace.com/tamarlese Peachiz

    WOW, I'm guilty of spreading this one, I really beleived it this time. I guess he not"how u doin" after all. Sorry Neyo.

  • Amulet

    This is a serious problem. They tell women to watch for signs. We will take a lesson from Terry McMillan with Jonathan Plummer. All this gossip can be avoided.
    Lesson learned. Ne-Yae is gay, and it's okay.

  • candycane

    THANK YOU LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A post.
    Yeah Wendy Williams said that the other day. Glad to hear it.

  • DivaMama

    I'm sorry, but I looked at the album and they look like they had an arrangement:

    Ne-Yo - Stand close to me so that they can think that we are a couple

    Beard - We look so fake!

    Ne-Yo - Shut up, here comes the photographer. Look entertained! Then we can head outside and take some pictures of you blowing me off and let them "leak."

    Was this event before or after the sidekick pictures?

  • bloggergirlz

    @ divamama: LMBAO! that's sort of how i envisioned it as well...

  • Amulet

    He got a girlfriend, well her boyfriend got a boyfriend.

  • goat76

    Neyo.......Girl drink that wine, so you can put the fire that's in your mouth, out!!!!!!!!!

  • teecee

    i hadnt heard all that, but i could care less.
    i dont know whose on a mission to make this ugly little fem midget a homo, but if thats you mission go head.

    I don't think I'll ever get all of the fascination with the "who is gay/who is not gay" game

    All advertisement is good advertisement.

  • Amulet

    If you ashame of something, then don't do it. It's facinating to others when people don't accept themselves. When you don't accept yourself, you leave room for people to attack you.

    It's even more liberating to be honest, not caring if people like you or not, but that you like/love yourself.

  • kitty4shigady

    Okay off subject... Sandra can you tell us if usjer and tameka or seperating and if she is pregnant again. I heard that last week but I just ignored it but now I am hearing it again. Can you tell us if that is true or not??? I remeber you was the first person who posted the pics of them on the beach 9 when usher had man boobs) and how they was creeping.

  • kitty4shigady

    Excuse the typos But I am at work and yall know how it goes when you trying not to get caught surfing the net lol

  • http://myspace.com/tamarlese Peachiz

    Or maybe he does this everytime an album about to drop for rrecord sales(the level some ppl will go to) i remember reading the article it stated, in Essence Oct 08' issue..

  • http://www.myspace.com/hune916 HunE916

    They probably think he's gay because she got them man hands and hairy arms!

  • http://myspace.com/sfh50millionpounds mj

    Thank you Sandra! I have been telling my friends this is a rumor. No way is he Gay.

  • licia

    i am surprised that sandra doesn't think he's gay because she thinks every man in the world is gay . lmao

    i honestly could care less if he is or he isn't . he could sing me to sleep anytime. just sing . lol

  • Mzsuave

    Nite Nite yall *yawns & waves*

  • trish

    Sandra........... now u know u need to stop this tom foolery! As a fellow lesbanon i can tell you that that brutha is family.. have you seen his old school pics with his bubble gum lipgloss with the lip labre? he has some serious dsl's

  • karaz

    Mj, if u believe that this boy who probably shits glitter isn't gay,then I have a piece of beachfront prooperty in atlanta to sell you. Its decently priced too.

  • renegro

    did essence mag get hacked? its alot of that going on. or was that just one comment made after the post written in away that would think was coming from some kind of legit interview

  • vipatlstyle

    If you really want to know if he indeed mess around with boys then ask his mommy! So what if he has a girlfriend that doesn't mean anything. However this gay sh*t is getting old. I'm going to sleep now!

    JMO,
    VIPATLSTYLE

  • coaretained

    I'm going to read the rest of the comments later ( @ work.. s/b working lol) but I have to say READ HIDING IN HIP HOP.... this is the ONE character of his that I can figure out. I don't have the book on me, so I can't give you his "name" but I am 110% he's talking about him.. even in Terrence Deans interviews he calls him out.. not by name.. but by accomplishments. I still like his music though.. don't care who he sleeps with as long as he's honest with himself.

  • purepisces

    Not to take away from him...he's talented as hell, writes and sings, and has shown he can cut a rug...it's already been said...we don't believe you. YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE. While he has cleaned up the physical image...no more arched eyebrows, chin piercing and tongue ring...AND got a "girlfriend," I'm just not buying it. SORRY SHAFFER!! Still think you're dope though!!
