Since megastar Beyonce released her megahit Irreplacable, Ne-Yo has made known his feelings concerning the song. In a recent interview with UK radio station Choice FM, the “Beautiful Monster” singer said:
“One song that I gave away and didn’t want to is Beyoncé’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 on the grand scheme of things However, a man singing it comes across a little bit misogynistic, a little bit mean.”
However, shortly after his quotes hit the Internet, Ne-Yo took to his Twitter to clarify his statement, claiming that he was misquoted. See what he said below:
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.
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. 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. (Source)
Is this a case of “foot-in-the-mouth” or was Ne-Yo really misquoted? The world may never know…
