I’ve never even considered comparing Ciara to Keri Hilson. Besides the fact that they each rep the “A”, there’s really no comparison in my opinion.
Ciara obviously agrees with me. When asked recently if she feels that Keri jacked her swag, CiCi pretty much said don’t even go there!
There’s a very, very strong difference between myself and Keri. So I’m not even in that space to go there. I’m way past that mentally and creatively . . . It’s best that I give my fans what they want.
It would be crazy to say I haven’t heard that question before, but mentally I’m not even there . . .
I honestly don’t feel like my spot has ever been taken. If you place Rihanna and Beyoncé aside of each other, you would be able to see clearly that there’s a difference . . . I’m just pushing to be the best in my own world.
When Ne-Yo Was 17… he was just as fabulous as he is today!
Ne-yo (born Shaffer C. Smith) was just a regular old teen at a performing arts school. Originally from Arkansas, Ne-Yo grew up in a single parent home Las Vegas, Nevada.
His mother moved the family to Vegas after she and his dad spit up and while he was growing up, it was there he discovered his love for and interest in music. Ne-Yo began writing songs at an early age but he also had a passion for doodling:
“I went to a performing-arts high school. I wasn’t even there for music….I was there for visual design and drawing and painting and stuff like that.”
Ne-Yo and friends…
