neyo 1024 Ne Yo Addresses The Gay Rumors (Again) & R. Kelly BeefNe-Yo recent sat down with Essence magazine to discuss a number of things including the gay rumors that he’s been dodging since debuting, as well as the recent drama with R. Kelly. Check out the extract below:

On The Gay Rumors

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.”

On R. Kelly ‘Beef':

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–.

    Sigh. Journalists and fans need to stop asking these guys if they are “gay” because anyone can learn to answer that question. Instead, they should ask “You get down?” or “You mess around?” or even “Are you attracted guys as well as women?” Then an artist will be forced to be honest or will show some genuine discomfort with the question so that an appropriate conclusion can be drawn. The way things are today, guys can sleep with other guys in addition to women and honestly say that they are not “gay”. Having said that, I wish Ne-Yo could be honest about his attraction to guys without having to suffer the consequences of an ignorant fan base. Maybe one day….

    I agree with you JNez. Plus, why didn’t he be direct and flat out say NO , if he indeed isn’t gay? Just like in the comments about R. Kelly, that’s being DIRECT. He basically said, I don’t have any beef with R. Kelly and he literally said “I don’t hate R. Kelly” (indicating directly that he doesn’t have beef with him, that he felt disrespected by him, but not hatred towards him.)

    As a celebrity there are certian things that you must be open and honest about and one of those things is your sexuality. How can celebrities expect us to invest into them, if they’re not being real with us and honest to themselves? Times are changing now, it’s actually okay to different, unconventional and one’s self. Ne-Yo needs to clear this issue up forreal with his next interview or public statement.

    It sound like Ne-yo is just upset that Kelz didn’t come talk to him in person.
    Get over it!!
    Kelz is a legend and could careless about neyo’s performace.

    I have seen neyo perform and all he does is stands there.

    Kelz gives a show!
