Ne-Yo has a concern that he has been living with. He is worried that women are being called derogatory names on records nowadays, and he also has what would seem like an intervention, an antidote of some sort, for the menace that is misogyny. While he had blames for men who use derogatory terms for women in their music, he also was quick to point out that women actually help male artists fan the flame to their misogynistic tendencies by engaging with their content.
The singer seemed to be letting the little concern off his chest yesterday when he sat down for a conversation with The Cruz Show Podcast.
“Music has gotten super misogynistic, which I don’t understand,” complained the singer. “And, mind you, I can only blame most men halfway for that because, as a woman, if a man sings the word ‘b*tch’ to you and you smile at him, he’s probably gon’ do it again and again and again. And the more misogynistic the lyrics get, the more y’all accept it, the more that’s gonna happen. That’s just kinda what that is. So, listen, ladies, I love y’all to death, but if y’all want men to stop calling you ‘b*tches, stop dancing to them records.”
