THE MAIN EVENT. How Ne-Yo REALLY Feels About His Newest Role!By Delaina Dixon | August 31, 2015 | Gals On The Town
It’s #MainEventMonday and we’ve got exclusive gossip about our fave Ne-Yo!
We ran into the soulful singer at the launch party at Manhattan Brew & Vine, a new eatery and lounge in Harlem, N.Y. And of course, Ne-Yo talked to us about his newest role, the Tin Man, in NBC’s upcoming production of The Wiz, airing live Dec. 3!
“I’ve watched The Wiz a good 37 times in the last two days,” he shared with the DivaGals.
With Cirque du Soleil partnering on the production Ne-Yo admitted that he’s “just making sure I’m nice and limber. I don’t know what they’re doing with the choreography but I know it’s going to be something amazing and I’m keeping myself fresh.”
he added, “I’m honored just to be a part of it, I really am.” Awww, we love that humility.
Ne-Yo wasn’t the only familiar face we saw. We spotted fellow performers Fabolous,┬áMack Wild and Consequence, along with legendary rapper Shaggy. We also enjoyed beef and lamb sliders and champagne brought to us personally by executive chef Denzell Washington.
