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!

ya konw as i am readin gall of you guys post i see that ya'll really non-reseptive to Ne-yo when most ot the songs that you sing are all songs that he have written and i bet they are your favorties too....this cat has been in the game since he was 17 and i bet ya'll didn't know that ....so all them songs ya'll singing yeah he wrote them and i am not talking just r&b..... ya'll just hating and i so agree with Johhny SoCal IN THE KNOW, DON"T KNOW CRAP!!!!!!!!....and he dosen't need to promote himslef at her expense cause he is well established for himself as a producer/songwriter ya'll just know him as the singer and nothing else so Ne-yo don't need to ride the coat tail of some dumb girl who can't even get her life straight to save her life!!!! I am not going to lie Britt "was" off the chain BACK THEN!!!!
Now she is off the wall!!!!

Steve - You are right about NeYo he does sound like he sings out of his nose! Although Akon is way worse. It sounds like he has a kazoo stuck up his nose!

sexy d22, i'm not knocking him at all for the hustle! NOT AT ALL. i have plenty of producer/songwriter friends and know how things work and how tough it is to get known. but dude isn't mainstream and wants to be is all i'm saying. and i'm not even knocking him for trying to get a lil publicity out of it. but he should point fingers where they should be pointed at THE LABEL, not the artist. anyone working at a record label knows how little power/input most artists have--KELLY CLARKSON ANYONE?

Ne-Yo has so much talent as a song writer. He does need Britney. He has integrity not to have dissed her. Anyone else would have trashed the has been. LOL

This is pretty simple:

If the label or singer did not pay for the songs they belong to the writer!

The key word in In the Know's comments is "worked." You said you knew of ne-yo when he was trying to make it. Oviously that was a while ago since you are still under the impression that Ne-yo is tryign to ride Britney's (no longer present) coat tails. Ne-yo wrote two of the biggest hits in the last year: Unfaithful for Rihanna and Irreplacable for Beyonce. He is not an up and coming writer. He is already there. The tables have turned since you were in the business. Jive was probably begging him to write something for her come back album.
