Despite knowing her for several years, Ne-Yo says he still gets starstruck by Beyoncé.
Speaking with BANG Showbiz, he said:
”I absolutely still get starstruck. I just recently did some sessions with Beyonce. I’ve met her a million times but every time she steps into a room, it’s like, ‘Wow’. That’s what happens when you appreciate and respect an artist – being starstruck never goes away.”
And yes, the 30-year-old singer-songwriter was asked about her performance at this week’s presidential inauguration:
”I didn’t see the inauguration so I can’t comment on her performance, but I will say that people can be so judgmental on anything an artist does, so of course Beyoncé will be no exception to that rule. People are always going to be making comments, everybody is a damn expert at everything. You know what that woman is capable of, you know what she can do, so whether she’s singing live or lip synching, whatever the case may be, just enjoy the damn music and shut up.”
