NeYo's Tears Explained

Time for some damage control!

After bailing on TWO performances in the UK, singer NeYo is speaking out to try and sort the matter out.

The R&B star burst into tears after abruptly ending a performance in Manchester last week, leaving fans baffled.

Turns out NeYo's teardrops were the result of a broken heart!

As well as a sinus infection.

He writes:

I'm currently on tour in the UK. This tour began right after a 4 month stint in Prague shooting a world war 2 movie. We're in a different city in a different part of the UK every night, moving non stop. Since my first album, roughly 5 years ago, I've taken 1 vacation, and even that was about 2 years ago.

Basically, I have an issue with not knowing when to say enough is enough, so last night in Manchester, my body said it for me.

I got on stage energized and ready to go, even tho for the last 5 days I've been dealing with a sinus infection. I paid it no real mind, and kept on going, like I always do. My voice couldn't take it. From the first song I knew something was wrong. I shoulda stopped there, but I come from a school where no matter what, the show must go on. It wasn't until about 4 songs in that I came to the painful realization that my voice was done, literally nothing left, and that I would have to stop the show.

Now let me explain something to you:

When I say this music, that stage, my fans, THIS is my life, I'm not saying it cause it sounds good in a sound bite. THIS IS MY LIFE!! Not much else matters to me, honestly.

My music, my family and the people that appreciate my music…..the fans. THAT'S ABOUT IT!!

I've never had to stop a show, never dreamed I'd ever have to. So when I had to walk out on that stage and tell 12,000 of the people responsible for making me who I am that I could not perform for them, it literally broke my heart.

I cried harder than I have in a very long time with no shame whatsoever.

To anyone out there that would like to question my manhood because of this I'll say this to you:

If the one thing you cared about more than anything else in the world was threatened or even taken from you, if you knew that the people you cared for the most you had to disappoint and it was your fault… and this didn't spark some kind of emotional outbreak within you…then with no shame I'll say you are truly a stronger man than I.

To the people of Manchester, know that I love you and I thank you for being so understanding and supportive. And I promise you that you will receive the show deserved.

Thanks to the fans for the love and concern.

And to the bloggers….go to hell.

Sincerely, Ne*Yo!!

Awwww, how sweet.

See you in hell, princess!

    Peretzel, u'r a bitch…an honest to god BITCH! i think that his statement was truly heartfelt….unlike ur dramatic lil video blogs that u force upon….i hope the guy feels better and gets a vay-cay…he really does seem like he tries to give his all to his music…



  4. 4

    Awwww poor Ne-Yo.
    But seriously, i would hate it if i was one of the fans in the crowd at Manchester when he bailed. I'd be so so devastated.
    He still seems like a bit of a tool to me though, and i'm a fan of his music..



  5. 5

    I can understand his situation, but honestly I just don't believe that story. It had to have been something else.



  6. 6

    NeYo > Bloggers that help ruin chances for a truly equal United States



  7. 7

    Very sweet letter to the fans. What someone should do in that situation is to have a meet and greet with everyone who came so no fan would leave disappointed. He was probably feeling too bad to do that tho,

    You know that whenever someone says: "To the bloggers, go to hell" or "Fuck the bloggers", they really mean "Fuck Perez". I don't understand how he can love being hated so much.



  23. 23

    "…and this didn't spark some kind of emotional outbreak within you…then with no shame I'll say you are truly a stronger man than I…."

    Translation: I love butt sex.



  24. 24

    bit of a drama queen



  25. 25

    Come on Neyo! I kickboxed Friday night with a pinched nerve in my back…suck it up and deal with your damn sinus infection…get some veramyst and stfu!



  26. 26

    lol….i like yr sign off…”see you in hell princess”….im glad you've finally accepted the fact that you will be spending eternity in hell for being a sodomite..



  27. 27

    awww :)
    hard worker :P P
    i looove him

  28. kaz says – reply to this

    Laury,…you're right. As much as I support Perez by clicking on his website to see the trainwrecks, I wish I could read his site without giving him more power….which is why I go through stages where I'm so pissed I just refuse to read it. Then something happens and I go back…because Perez is pretty fast in his postings. I am concerned for you Perez, I know you enjoy your freedom of speech, but do you really enjoy all the spite aimed your way? Don't EVEN tell me you don't care, I know you do!



  29. 29

    Don't know NeYo at all, but that was a nice response from the heart.

    Hope he gets well soon.



  30. 30

    Aww.. I'd be upset if I was there… But he sounds honest.



  31. 31

    He still hasn't adressed the fact he bailed on the other gig the other day!!

    NE YO SORT IT OUT AND SAY SORRY FOR LEAVING THAT ONE TOO!



  32. 32

    WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER GIG U LEFT NE YO, TRUST ME YOUR 'FANS' HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN ABOUT THAT!!!!



  33. 33

    Oh ne-yo, does that also explain why you didnt show up to not one but TWO shows that you were to perform in Trinidad and Tobago? Even though i believe that you may be under a lot of pressure but the professional thing to do would be to cancel the show BEFORE thousands of ppl showed up to see you. Not go on stage and cry. But i hope you're ok, get some rest and let's hope that ppl will not be wary of coming to one of your shows again.



  34. 34

    Perez- you are soo funny lately hahahha omg:)
    (you def must be getting some action)



  35. 35

    Hahaha, good for Neyo. Perez you're pathetic and Neyo had a good reason to cry unlike you and you're attention seeking ways. Nobody cares.



  36. 36

    NEYO….you are AMAZING and everybody knows it…EVERYBODY. You crying just made you even MORE likeable…your REAL…that IS your MAGIC. But give yourself a break….you NEED and DESERVE it.
    Love, a fan.



  37. 37

    Cry me a river.



  38. 38

    Bitch you're getting ready to get punched in the face again.



  39. 39

  43. 43

    Wow, I believe him.



  44. 44

    He broke up with a guy—that's what happened. He cannot expain that right now.



  45. 45

    Aww cry me a river. What a fucking drama queen. Some people have real problems, doucheface.



  46. 46

  47. 47

    I just recently had a sinus infection.. they SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sooo bad!!!! so i get what he means.. i love NE-YO..lol ;P

  48. cessy says – reply to this


    48

    HAHAHA go to hell perez!!!



  49. 49

    now he is the victim? what about those who paid their tickets to see him :(



  50. 50

    I was at the Manchester concert and we weren't devestated that he left, yeah we were upset but because we've been reassured that we'll get to see him again, it's all good.
    2 concerts for the price of 1 :D



  51. 51

    what the hell is wrong with you perez. god he was just being honest to his fans, this just makes us love him more and love you MUCH LESS!



  52. 52

    If it really was NeYo's life, the bloggers would be part of it. Telling part of your life to go to hell, just because you don't like what that part of your life is telling you, is pretty dumb. Also, "this is my life" is pretty cliche. Saying it, then defending it, is generally held to indicate fakeness. Oh, I was crying because my voice gave out, and I had a sinus infection. I guess he didn't have a dead relative to blame it on. No offense, but he had no problem performing before. The body gets used to routine.



  53. 53

    Is that Queen Latifah?



  54. 54

    I thought he was dating another industry male.



  55. 55

    Ne*Yo I love you! :) hes so sweet. everyone needs to give him a break.
    perez you should be ashamed. your rude to ppl who do things that everyone else does JUST BECAUse thEYRE FAMOUS! big freakin deal. theyre still human. gossip about more useful things or JUST BE NICE TO PEOPLE. god! you jerk



  56. 56

    NEYO IS THE SHIT AND WILL ALWAYS BE! GET WELL SOON BABY! FUCK YOU PEREZ! ASSHOLE.



  57. 57

    What a liar and io quote ” kept on going, like I always do” What about when he walked off mid performance a few weeks back in that club.
