R&B singer/songwriter, Ne-Yo, recently visited Choice FM Radio where he mentioned that he regretted giving the chart topping song, “Irreplaceable” to Beyonce. He stated: “One song that I gave away and didn’t want to is Beyonce’s ‘Irreplaceable’. I honestly wrote that song for myself. But that song actually taught me a very interesting lesson – men and women don’t actually think that much differently in the grand scheme of things. However, a man singing it comes across a little bit misogynistic, a little bit mean.”
Ouch. After the news aired that Ne-Yo said this about the song, he took to his Twitter page to clear it up before he things got ugly. He tweeted on Thursday:
@NeYoCompound: Believing everything you read is just as bad as letting somebody run you. Stop letting these media haters and bloggers control y’all.
@NeYoCompound: You wanna know ’bout me? ASK ME. You wanna know if I said somethin’ ASK ME. C’mon y’all. I KNOW you’re smarter than that. Much love.
And continued to Tweet…
@NeYoCompound: All good. Beyonce’ is a friend of mine. I’m sure she knows I’d never dis her in regard to Irreplaceable or at all for that matter.
@NeYoCompound: Wonderful to know her fans have her back the way they do tho. Say what you will about me, I’ll sleep comfortably tonight regardless…
@NeYoCompound: ….But do not allow the ignorance of some let you question my gratitude to those who’ve helped me along the way.
