    Ask him where did he get his passion of writing because he is one of the best songwriters from this generation.

    Don’t ask him how it was working with Rihanna because everyone asks him that and like every star, he loved it.

  20. X,Y,”and Z” July 13, 2010

    @Sam —

    What defines, connotes or-even ‘draws-the-boundaries-around’ — a “legitimate question?” If I had, put-to-you, to ask Neyo:

    Why did you finally decide to “join” Camp-Fenty? — Would THAT be a “legit question”?
    Did the fact that you, contributed to “Rated R,” have-any-to-do with said “joining Camp-Fenty” …? — Would THAT be “legit question?”
    So now that you’ve joined Camp-Fenty, could-you-ever-look-Chris in-the-face? — Would that be “legit question?”

    Why should I, as a black-male heterosexual, be concerned with-what-you — as an ambiguous, misguided, and-with-your-support-of/for-Rihanna/as-you’re-of-Camp Fenty, perceived as anti-Chris Brown/”anti-black male” — will-have-to-say, regarding love, relationships or the general condition/flight-of the Universe (as-we-know-it), as we’re hurled through time-and-space t’wards dimensions-unknown …??? <–Would that be a "legit question?"

    Do you think anyone takes your supposed "marriage/baby-father status" as-nothing-more –than-cover for your "self-hating (OF YOUR)black-penis sexuality?" — Would that be a "legit question?"

    Do-you-at-times, wish-you-could, as-dose-Tyler Perry : "Don the finest-in-Women's-Wear and "Window-Shop Buckhead's-finer Haute Couture-Haberdashery …??" <–Sam, "legit or not?"
    Do-YOU-think, as-most-find-suspicious: "The Dream" — his relationship with Christina Millian "was-ONLY-cover??" <–Sam … well? … "Legit or not?"

    Are you a "Top" or a "Bottom??" … If you were a "Top," would you have "thought twice" 'bout throwing-your-support behind Rihanna, and joining "Camp-Fenty," as-you-did? <–Sam; "Legit or not?"

    And finally, Neyo, do you often wonder why, your sexuality comes-into-question, as it most-often does? … Do you find yourself cheering-at/for, and/or talking-to, "the Media character," in Tyler Perry's movies? … Do-you-make-it 'without-fail', in-front-of-a-television, never-to-miss, not-even-one-episode-of Oprah? … Do-you-find-yourself implicitly/absolutely-agreeing-with-Rihanna "and-think-she", or-ANY-in-possession of-a-Uterus, unable-to-do ANY-wrong? … Neyo, if you've answered YES, to even one, of said-posed questions …. my-dude, you-is-GAY …!!!!! " … Top, Bottom or 'Versatile'; gay is gay!!"

    So Sam, whatcha think? "…Legit-or-no … ???"

    X,Y,"and Z" — OUT!!

  21. “Dj Y2k Malone” July 13, 2010

    who do he thinks deliver his songs better Rihanna or Beyonce?

  22. Last Boy on Earth July 13, 2010

    @x,y and z
    it takes one to know one and your obssession with Chris Brown doesn’t help either.. what happened to you? were you picked on the school when you were a kid? your parents died? your father r**** your mom? your father abused you? or did you really born this way? get a therapist, it will only help you because no one that is sane would say that you are normal

  23. TheBaddestBitch July 13, 2010

    Ok my turn:

    1) When did you realize that you had songwriting skills?

    2) Which artist you dream to duet with?

    3) How do you see yourself in ten years?

  24. Eddie whitfield July 13, 2010

    You’ve worked with many artist and have wrote some big hits? Who would you say is the most professional, likable, and persistent?

    You’ve wrote hits for both Beyonce and Rihanna? If Beyonce and Rihanna asked you to work on a whole album which one would you choose?

    What can we expect from this album? What was your inspiration for this album?

    How do you feel about artist who cross over? Do you feel that you are crossing over?

    Why do you think it is so hard for R&B artist to make a name for themselves in today’s industry?

  25. DJ Taj July 13, 2010

    As a fan of his newer “dance” orientated material such as “Closer” & “Beautiful Monster”… I would like to know it he himself is a big fan of dance music and if so, what dance artists/producers/remixers he’s a fan of?

  26. ADE July 13, 2010

    @VANNAENVAZION, Catfish? LMAO hilarious!

  27. ADE July 13, 2010

    @Eddie, damn those questions are the same ones I had in mind! Oh well you beat me to it lol 😀

  28. Luv-Lee July 13, 2010


    Please don’t ask Ne-Yo how was it working with Michael. That’s a typical question that everyone knows the answer to. Ask him more detailed questions about his admiration for Michael, please. Also, can you please ask Ne-Yo if he is a trained dancer, or does his ability just come naturallly. Thanks again TGJ!! I can’t wait for this interview!!! 😀

  29. stan July 13, 2010

    are you ever going to do r&b-oriented records again in the future?

  30. X,Y,”and Z” July 13, 2010

    @Last Boy On Earth —

    But why haven’t you ask the other 4(5, including mine) other post/bloggers “that-very-same-question?”

    So far, of the 26, I now-see-posted, 4 are questioning/need clarification-of/on Neyo’s sexuality and 3 others have some mention ’bout Chris Brown!

    And IT-WAS-Y’ALL “Camp-Fenty(ites),” who, only-months-ago, bragged-bout “Neyo being on Rihanna’s side!” … So you can F***-OFF!!!

    … Let me TRY to-get-my-head-around this: Your name is “Last Boy On Earth!” (Scrolling-up) I see that your question for Neyo is-in-regard-to Rihanna; no-surprise-there! But yet, you’ve sought to-single-me-out and-try-to “call-me-out …?”

    … Take your self-righteous, hypocritical ‘Rhianna-worship’ and stuff-it-up that “Eastern European-Sphincter” of yours!
    If Neyo didn’t want anyone to “NOW-question him,” he shouldn’t have shot-off HIS-mouth, as-he-did!!! His name wouldn’t be “well know on/by” or those “lingering rumors would-he-now, be-forced-to-explain” … nor evade!

    In-any-case, my questions for Sam, to ask Neyo, STILL STAND and I’ll-wait-to-see, if Sam “keeps-it-real ..!!!”

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT …!!!!

  31. S*** July 13, 2010

    Ask him why he gives all the good S*** to Rih & Bey But saves the RUBBISH for himself??

  32. Gary July 13, 2010

    How do you keep this good and classy boy image while still being frankly succesful ?


    Who is your favorite artist to work with

  33. Last Boy on Earth July 13, 2010

    @x,y and z
    why do you care about his sexuality? mind your own business and get a life and Portugal is southwest Europe, not eastern Europe and btw, you seem to know alot about gay men for a straight guy and as a bisexual man I don’t like to see Oprah, my father is straight and he likes to watch Oprah, if I were you I would be less American and would cut off those stereotypes, the stereotypes that the Americans give to people are dumb stupid and laughable

  34. Brandon July 13, 2010


    While your first two albums were strictly Rnb, your last two albums have had a much bigger pop sound. Would you still consider yourself an Rnb artist or are you going the ‘international’ route?

  35. Ms.Potter July 14, 2010

    @ Eddie

    That 2nd question was the exact question I was going to ask.


    Here’s My other question.

    What advice do you give to up and coming writers?

  36. X,Y,”and Z” July 14, 2010

    @Last Boy On Earth —

    Let me tell you something, those “rumors” bout Neyo been-there since day-1! This is “no new-mud, being slung or recent-hate!”

    And if Neyo didn’t want anyone to “talk ’bout him,” he shouldn’t have “jumped-on the ‘bash- Chris bandwagon,’ as-he-MOST-CERTAINLY-did, not-long-after, ‘Rated R’ being-released!” He should have mind HIS-OWN-business and KEPT HIS-OWN MOUTH-SHUT!
    So now, you know what? Since he “invited-himself-in,” he’ll NOW FELL THE HEAT! And if what I said offended your most-cultivated “Iberian sensibilities” , you’ll-do-well to surrender said “affections” at-the-door and shuffle-your-ass back-on-over-to Rihanna daily!

    … Let-me-say, but-again, IF NEYO DIDN’T “TAKE SIDES”, I WOULDN’T BE-HERE-NOW, posting “legitimate questions!”
    And-it-seems that you “of Camp-Fenty” should “bear some responsibility, yourselves!” It was y’all who bragged-and-boasted that Neyo, was-then, “down with Rihanna; thereby, rollin-with Camp-Fenty!” … And-y’all-know what-else? … I-AT-NO-TIME, heard Neyo make any-such: “Public-Declaration of Neutrality; Call For ‘Evenhandedness’; or even offer Olive-Branch held-in-hand-below, as White-Dove flew-above!”
    …If anything, Neyo “stoked the flames of hate,” with his much publicized “siding-with Rihanna!” But, as I’ve said, now-it-is-HE who MUST feel, what must now be “discomfort” and eventually, searing pain!

    … Stay tuned, I’ve got Neyo, Kelly Rowland, Kellis, “The White Rapper” and-still-your-much-beloved-Rihanna squarely-in-MY-crosshairs ….!!!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT…!!!

  37. IMISSDANITYKANE July 14, 2010

    What does he think of Rihanna as a talent…..honestly? Mainly her vocals?

  38. Mia Danielle July 14, 2010


    What advice does he have for singer/songwriters looking to break into the industry?

    How is this album different from his previous 3?

    Do you feel that R&B artists are selling out by making crossover or pop music?

    What rituals or traditions do you have when songwriting?

  39. Lyo July 15, 2010

    What’s your relationship with Brandy, were those songs you did with her meant for an album?
