I haven't had my cup of espresso yet so I can't muster up the energy to respond to Ne-Yo's "advice" in this video. Even before I saw the singer I knew she would be dark skinned.

  • iscream

    Can't see video.


    That girl should've told his short arse. Even if I lose weight you still can't get your hairline back, you still can't shake those gay rumors (we all saw your pre famous photos), you still couldn't pull a half way decent looking woman if it wasn't for your money, you still can't grow....

    In other words we all have our flaws. Some can be changed and some we can live with.

    I don't have a PROBLEM with hat Ne-Yo said...he wasn't disrespectful...he broke it down and told "big girl" that it depends on the demographic she's going after...and he gave her some real honest info...

    And that more "cardio" you do...the easier you sing, breath, bend, go up stairs...etc.tip is ON POINT!!!

    i officially hate iscream forever with it still won't make your hairline right...in re to chimere ne-yo jankins.

    kona. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • mizzdallas

    Okay here is my 0.2 cents as Daisy would say....

    I want to go in hard on Neyo, but however there was some truth to what he was saying, ole girl can sing but she is overweight, if she wants to be an aspiring artist she really is going to have to loose weight seriously.
    Thats the only way she will probably get a record deal unless she choose to sing gospel and I'm not even going there...

  • shay1

    Well Jhud won her Oscar from the role she played with Bey, correct? Not before?? Boi Bye! Iscream ok....LOL! :-)

    i too wanted to go hard on ne-yo... but i must say when i was a size 5/6 i had alot less health issues than NOW that i am 12. i am a life long asthmatic and my doc has pretty much said that my hard breathing overweight azz did this to myself. and that my symptoms may allievate themselves with weight loss. nothing else has changed. still same city, still same house (so no new allergens). the only thing that changed? my weight. it may be hard to hear but oh well. it may save or better a life.

    I was just reading about that. The trains were requested to be phased out back in 2006 due to safety concerns. Once again the publics safety in jeopardy. They knew about New Orleans long before Katrina.

  • KayCeiSoul

    ISC - you made my morning with this there! LOL

    -> Even if I lose weight you still can’t get your hairline back <-

  • lexdiamonz

    Go-GO sit down and go ride a dingling leave that girl alone you fish face sucka

  • iscream

    Lmao sorry yall.

    & IMO big girls sing way better than skinny girls. I don't know why but they can Blow!

    & when Kelly Price was big so was her name. As she lost weight she lost her career. I'm just saying

  • KaraZ

    Umm he's not lying to this chick, she asked when you look at me what do you see, and he said I think you need to lose weight. And considering she's trying to enter the entertainment industry where looks matter more than talent, that's sound advice. Most consumers don't want too see the Michelin man's sister jumping around on stage performing, they want to see a svelte fantasy like women singing about fluff. If he was being mean spirited he would say fix your face too, because she's not all that cute.

  • KayCeiSoul

    ^^I feel you Isc.
    Neo has a lot of nerves. He is neither a dietician, nurse, nor doctor. Bastage.

    Granted, some people who are or have been overweight may have had some health issues; but Neo was saying this for IMAGE purposes, not for health reasons. He has a lot of nerves, but I guess he'd know about a target market - considering he caught his target market off those tight Lil' Richard Pennyman pants.

  • KayCeiSoul

    There are diferent audiences for different artists. She could very well gain a great following and make plenty money by just being a flat-footed singer. It depends on what her aspirations are.

    Everyone does not have the desire to be entertained by some half naked broad doing contortion tricks across a stage while a pre-recorded track is playing. That ain't music.

  • anti-PC

    I'm a slim girl and we seem to be out of style now.
    I am beginning to like Ne-Yo less and less.

    Many big girls are out there doing there thing right now. Tell that fugly dude to SHUT UP. Ne Yo looks like an --never mind-- yet people listen to him sing because he's talented.

    If the big girl is talented, TRUST people will listen to her.

  • http://twitter.com/joycejustice LadyJustice

    he was just being HONEST. if she didnt want the truth she shouldnt have asked. im sure she appreciated his comment

  • Kat

    i don't see where neyo said anything wrong. he told the truth. "shallow muthaf*ckas in the pop industry don't want to see no big girl...beyonce is barely making it, you won't believe how hard that girl works".....TRUTH! and like he said, if she plans on going the neo soul way, the weight is fine. she has a nice voice tho.

  • pointhimout

    i dont see what was wrong with what he said. he's being honest. pop and r/b you have to look a certain way because of the market ur selling to. neyo soul, they expect you to be tow back, right neyo? i see what he's saying. hahaha.

    beyonce's a natural big girl, quiet as it's kept. wth? maybe that explains the 5M a kid she'll get, per the prenup?

  • KayCeiSoul

    @point - Do tell?! There's a pre-nup that details 5M per kid?!?

  • iscream

    ^^^ there was a rumored pre nup ^^^

    & as long as people keep believing that you have to look a certain way to sell records stero types like that will stay alive. When I buy a record its based off of the sound of the music not the look of the artist. Christte Michelle & Jazmine Sullivan aren't skinny girls and they have great albums. C Error who is very thin.... well we know where her career is headed.

  • http://myspace.com/bettathaniwasb4 2bme

    he didn't say you're a fat bytch lose some weight..he kept it real and honest..the industry is based on looks not talent..even though jhud won the oscar.they still photoshopped her album cover to appeal to a broader audience..at least he told her the truth

  • Shauny

    I guess I'm in the minority here because I actually think he was keeping it 100 with her. He told different genres accept different types and if she wanted to go the pop way then she needed to shed a pounds because they don't accept bigger girls but if she wanted to go more Neo they she would be fine because they go more off talent than looks.

    Please tell me where he lied? He told her the honest truth. He even gave examples. TEAM NEYO on this one. I understood what he was telling her.

  • Daisy

    Well I am on team Shauny n Neyo on this one if she is trying to compete with B n Rih she has to lose some weight if she trying to hang with Chrisette, Jasmine and Jill she can stay a big girl even J hud lost a few lbs before she got prg.

  • Peachizz

    I was about to BLAST his closet hugginn azz but , then i listen to the girl , and I could be wrong but it seemed that he was kinda "set up", ... I will pass him this time. He called Beyonce "naturally a big girl"....

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    I am taking Neo's advise right now. : - )

  • leat

    so what would someone tell him when he wants to be in movies like Denzel....."look better" "stop wearing a DAMN hat" "get some work done on ur face" is he serious! i think he dissed Jill and Jennifer....message should be they are out there based solely on their talent if Beyonce puts on a few lbs no one is going to want hear her voice. Kelly Price has sold millions of records, angie stone, jill scott! if you can outsing Beyonce and out live the sabotage by her father it doesnt matter ur size! i hope this video gets out and he has to explain himself nationally! He sucks...hes been blacklisted in y ipod!

  • Daisy

    @Peach i agree and B has said so herself although I think she says curvy or thick. She has to work hard to look like she does and that is why when she is not on stage she gains some weight cause she loves that darn popeyes chicken..lol

  • pinkvirgo

    Ya'll may not like the way it was worded but it's the truth. What's funny is if she had a song and Sandra posted her on the red carpet how many of us would be hollering damn little mama need some spanx. lol

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    I concur with Ne-yo 100%. Ne-yo, what is up with my Artist Shima????? Have you forgotten about her.

  • http://organizekaos.blogspot.com JJSPLAYHOUSE

    Is he serious!I guess he is since they had to make him look "less gay" before they promoted him. What a joke. Talent gets you nowhere these days.
