September 09, 2008. Essence Magazine
August 2008

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.

It looks like it's not true,

Essence Responds to Ne-Yo Gay Rumor
R&B singer Ne-Yo has had an interesting couple of weeks on the World Wide Web. First a picture of him and a young woman in the midst of a sex act surfaces, courtesy of his hacked-into Sidekick…as the story goes.

A rumor being e-mailed around this week, and attributed to “Barbra Stradoff, Essence Magazine” is that Ne-Yo is gay and finally coming out of the closet in the pages of the publication’s October issue. But according to the magazine, the rumor is 100 percent false.

“This story is not true. Ne-Yo isn't even in our October issue, and there's no one here by the name of Barbara Stradoff,” a rep for Essence told EUR.

The first clue that this story is bogus is the circulated e-mail itself. Here it is in all of its unedited glory:

“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.

January 26, 2008. MediaTakeOut.com has learned that Ne-Yo made an interesting statement in this month's issue of Essence Magazine. When asked what he thought about speculation that he may be a closeted homosexual - this is his response:
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.”

Alrighty then .... That clears EVERYTHING up...

Neyo Responds again, but this time more colorfully:

Quote :
One rule of being a gentleman is to keep your cool and composure at all cost, but right about now I gotta loosen up this tie and take off this expensive suit jacket and talk to the people for a minute. The haters especially.Pardon my french, but what the fuck is wrong with y’all!?! Are you so desperate for an R&B bad guy that you gotta find a way to create one in me??

Okay, the comment about light skinned babies…….an obvious joke, maybe not a good joke, but clearly a joke. Y’all REALLY took that serious!?! I understand that a hater’s job is to hate, clearly. But it’s when people start feeding in to what a hater is saying that something must be addressed.

The whole gay thing. For goodness sake it’s been 4 years!!!! Y’all still on that huh? The whole “boys” song, and the song “go over there”. See this is what happens when people steal. These songs were clearly written for women. Had you been patient, you would have heard them the way they were supposed to be heard, with the voice of the intended artist on em’. But noooo, someone gets a hold of these demos and suddenly everybody forgets that I write songs for women. Riiight.

I tell People Magazine that Young Jeezy’s crib is right next to mine and that once I saw him in there from across the way. I then make a JOKE about him maybe not wanting to walk around naked in his crib with the shades up cause the buildings are THAT close to each other, and that AIN’T something I care to see. Suddenly, everybody thinks I said I saw Young Jeezy in his crib naked when, NEVER ONCE did I say anything like that I mean come on people. Is this really what you’re gonna spend time on?? Will you not be satisfied until I truly become this asshole you so desperately want me to look like??

Here’s my stand on the whole thing:
I’m NOT gay, I’m NOT prejudice to anyone, I DID NOT get stomped out by Jim Jones or anyone else, I’m NOT engaged, I’M NOT STUPID. And to anyone that INSISTS on thinking that any of these things are true……FUCK YOU. To the haters….find some new material please!!! It’s 2009, our president is black!!! Time for change. To everyone else……I love you to death, thanx for all your support. WE PLATINUM ROUND HERE!!!!!

Much love, and see you at the grammy’s. Check the suit…..it’s gonna be TROUBLE!!!
