What’s an R&B dandy struggling to dodge gay rumors to do? If you’re Ne-Yo, you vent your frustrations online. In a heated 427-word blog entry called “A Message from the Gentleman,” which he posted today on his official website, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter who’s worked with everyone from Celine Dion to Rihanna blasts “the haters” for scrutinizing his sexuality. “One rule of being a gentleman is to keep your cool and composure at all cost, but right about now I gotta loosen up this tie and take off this expensive suit jacket and talk to the people for a minute,” he writes. “I’m NOT gay… And to anyone that INSISTS on thinking that any of these things are true……F— YOU.” His cheeky sign-off was even sassier: “Much love, and see you at the grammy’s. Check the suit…..it’s gonna be TROUBLE!!!” Oooh la la! Sounds fierce. Makes me wanna snap for the kids two times.
