Ne-Yo

Puts Britney on Blast

8/29/2007 1:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This morning on On Air with Ryan Seacrest, R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo discussed what occurred in his failed working relationship with Britney Spears. Brit still works?

Ne-yo: Click to hear!
Ne-Yo explained that he wrote 6 to 8 songs intended for Spears, which she loved, but once she shaved her head and went into rehab, all contact was lost as Britz didn't return calls. In the meantime, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger listened to the songs and purchased two of them. That's what we call a "jack move," folks! Ne-Yo now claims Brit-Brit is a little upset -- because he sold Nicole songs intended for her. Ya snooze, ya lose y'all!

Ne-Yo remained a gentleman during the entire interview and didn't take a few golden opportunities to trash the pop wreck -- even suggesting that a comeback is possible if she can separate her private and professional lives. No kidding!

Good thing these songs will be sung by someone other than Brit. Everything she touches turns to "mold" these days anyway.

First and for most there was no breah of contract anywhere, In the know!!! Ne-Yo is basically saying that he is tired of the run a round with her and her people's. I mean the situation is like someone telling you that they want to buy your car and they are gun ho about it and then months later you still haven't heard from them and someone else comes along and give you a better offer....what you going to do say No!!! someone else is eyeing this car already. Remeber this is months that he was trying to get in contact with Brittany's people. Am i am sure that Ne-Yo has good lawyers and thats why he gave the songs away and Brittany better be luck that Ne-yo still put two songs that she really wanted aside for her. So in the know i am goin gto need for you to really understand the whole breachin of contracts thing okay!!! See you are thinking it was a verbal contract that was made but it wasn't ...Britt was intrested in the songs Ne-Yo wrote her and her people didn't say yes we are definetly taking the songs and it is really up to them.....if her people was so concerned about her "COMEBACK" they would have jump on the opportunity and got the songs before someelse did. Ya snooze ya loose!!!!! in the music industry you have to act fast!!!!!! and i agree with Krsytilin he didn't put her on blast...some on people know the difference.....he was just on his grown man things and just told the truth and how he felt...i am tried of people always taking things out od context and that is how the entertainment wolrd is they love conflict with between celebs cause it is ratings so, of course they are going to hype it up bigger and what it truely is.......how yall like them apples?????!!!!!

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT! AGAIN:

Singers purchase songs from writers just like they purchase beats from producers! No contracts are required for a writer to write songs or a producer to produce beats! You sound foolish! STOP IT SOUTH CAROLINA!
===
NE-YO writes songs for just about every major R&B and Pop singer in the biz! That's who he is!

hey, i bet ne-yo man heard about her recently reported stinky south and decided to pass. it had to be one of her bodyguards who she slept with who said it. it's kinda sad if it was that britney doesn't know it. creep is getting paid by her and some other party to snitch on her too.

in the know    

gee, you're right you ALL know more than me. nevermind that i worked in both jive's a&r and business affairs departments and have full knowledge of how the label works. ONE MORE TIME: LABELS BUY TRACKS FOR THEIR ARTISTS. if an artist and a producer/songwriter decide they'd like to work together or even talk about working together, they have to go through the label to make it official and for any exchange of material/monies to take place. and of course i know who ne-yo is. i remember him from back in the day when he was begging jive and other labels to listen to his stuff. nothing against the guy at all, but he clearly isn't in the mainstream yet and desperately wants to be.
