Celebrities complain about how they have no privacy because paparazzi, TMZ and everyone wants to know about their lives constantly. Some of them do have a right to whine, but others know damb well they enjoy the attention, especially when THEY bring it to themselves.
Yesterday, Ne-Yo the slack-jawed yokel (whose music I DO enjoy) posted a pic to his Instagram account announcing the breakup of him and his fiancée (and mother of his 2 kids), Monyetta.
Ok this is wack for a couple of reasons. Why is he announcing their breakup at all?!? Ne-Yo is not one of the celebs that a lotta folks check for on a regular basis. Folks don’t post outside of his house clocking his coming and going like they do for the Kanyes and Beyonces. So if he broke up with his lady, he coulda kept that private for a while, until like 8 months down the line when we’re all “Oh wait. We haven’t seen them together in a while. I guess they’re over.” So essentially, WE’ONT CURR! Except we kinda do because we’re talking about it. But that’s because I roast a lot.
Second of all, this note is so damb wack. It’s like the template “I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU” thing that folks say to each other during breakups but only about 15% mean it. Psht, I know when I’m through with someone, I don’t plan on always loving them. I’ONT LOVE THEM HOES!!! HA!
And did he have to use MS Paint to create this graphic? He found the fuzziest pic of them possible and then opened up Paint in Windows Millennium to create this picture with a note that a 12 year old coulda written.
BYE NE-YO! He coulda used one of the many apps out there to create something better than this. And he coulda written one that doesn’t sound like “Breaking Up 101” material.
If you gon write some sort of post-breakup love note, you better include some Pablo Neruda sweet poetry so I know it’s real. Shoo… he coulda kept it. I’m petty.
I think this was tactless but Monyetta’s prolly cool with it so I’m just throwing a fit on her behalf.
Anywho, ladies, Ne-Yo’s single! Don’t all line up at once!
So whatcha think bout this note? Would you appreciate a “we’re done but I still love you” public declaration from your ex? Tell a G.
P.S. FYI, if you ever date a writer, poet, musician or whatever, don’t expect them to write stuff about you all the time. Lower those expectations. You’re welcome for the heads up.
