Ne-Yo Says He Doesn’t Like New MJ Album

     Ne-Yo made some headlines recently when he was asked about Michael Jackson's new "Michael" album. According to, Ne-Yo made it known that he does not approve of the new album, explaining why he will not support it.

"I haven't heard it yet," Ne-Yo told New York paparazzi. "I'm not really trying to hear that. Nah. I'm gonna stick to my old Mike. He was definitely a perfectionist. Mind you, if Michael was still alive, I don't think that album would be out yet. I don't think it would be out yet." (TMZ)

     Other artists like the Black Eyed Peas' frontman, have publicly criticized the album.

"Whoever put it out and is profiting off of it, I want to see how cold they are," he says, "to say that what [Michael] contributed during his life wasn't enough. He just wasn't any ordinary artist. He was a hands-on person. To me it's disrespectful. There's no honoring…Michael Jackson songs are finished when Michael says they're finished. Maybe if I never worked with him I wouldn't have this perspective. He was very particular about how he wanted his vocals, the reverb he used…he was that hands-on." (Entertainment Weekly)
