Ne-Yo Denies “Regret” Statement


Ne-Yo has denied that he stated in a radio interview that he regretted giving Beyonce the hit song that he wrote for her, “Irreplaceable.” As previously reported, Ne-Yo was quoted as saying, “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.” He added, “However, a man singing it comes across a little bit misogynistic, a little bit mean.”

Ne-Yo took to Twitter to clear up the situation. He wrote, “Ok. What’s this I hear about me wishing I never gave Beyonce’ Irreplaceable? Y’all ACTUALLY believe I said that? SERIOUSLY? Wow. Aiight. Believing everything you read is just as bad as letting somebody run you. Stop letting these media haters and bloggers control y’all.”

He continued, “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. 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.”

He added, “Say what you will about me, I’ll sleep comfortably tonight regardless . . . But do not allow the ignorance of some let you question my gratitude to those who’ve helped me along the way.”
