Published Dec 02, 2008R&B crooner Ne-Yo must really be sick of writing everyone love songs, as he's announced that he'll be working with shock rock sensation Marilyn Manson. According to an interview with EW.com, Ne-Yo mentioned a hypothetical collaboration with Manson in previous interviews, which spurred Manson's people to contact him.
"In a few interviews, I talked about taking pride in my diversity - being able to work with a Mary J. Blige, then a Michael Bolton, and then a Marilyn Manson," he told EW at the American Music Awards. "[Manson's] people heard about that, and were like, 'Put your money where your mouth is,' so now we're in the process of getting those sessions together."
There is no official word on when the sessions will take place or what will come out of him, but the real question is will Ne-Yo be donning the white make-up or fake boobs? "You won't see me adopting his style," he told The Daily Star. "I don't think you'll ever see me in make-up."
