|Ne-Yo spoke to Yesi Ortiz of Power 106 about fellow R&B star Frank Ocean’s coming out of the closet last week. Ne-Yo said that he believes that Ocean’s music should speak for itself and he supports people being who they are. He also added that he’s tired of gay rumors swirling about him.
“To each his own, if that’s how he rock, that’s how he rock, you know what I mean,” Ne-Yo said. “It don’t change the fact that his music is incredible. It don’t change the fact that he’s an incredible artist. He chose to put his personal life out there, and that’s him. I don’t fault people for who they are, if that’s really who you are, you know what I mean. If that’s really who you are then by all means do what you do. I’m not gonna judge you behind that. That’s not my place.”
“Call me ugly or something, let’s think of something else,” he added, addressing the gay rumors. ” This whole gay thing has been lingering for a little too long. Say I’m adopted, I’ll take the ninja turtle comments, I’ll take that. Let’s do something else.
