Ne-Yo Quotes:
"A huge difference between songwriting and being a singer. A songwriter can have a normal life. You're an ordinary person. But as an artist, somethings can't be ignored. You have to make sure you look like a million bucks. There's a certain image you have to maintain. It was a difficult transition, but I'm actually learning to love the spotlight."

"The key to a good song is to find a way to say something in a different way.Find something related to the people you're trying to reach. Find your own niche. It's difficult. I recommend honing your skills and be the best you can be until your opportunity comes along. When opportunity comes, make sure you're on top of your game."
-Neyo on songwriting

"Something that a lot of people don't know is that I have a five-month old son. Any free time I have now is spent with him. A few people suggested to me that I should try and hide the fact that I have a son because it might damage my career. But as far as I'm concerned, to hide it would suggest that I was ashamed and I'm not ashamed. I love my son. Me and his mum aren't in a relationship. We're actually best friends. We've known each other for years and years and never ever wanted to be in a relationship with each other. But the one time we... got physical, she fell pregnant. Of course, we did a lot of talking to decide how we were gonna handle the situation. We weren't about to start a relationship for the sake of the child 'cos that's not what either of us wanted. So I just said, 'You be mum, I'll be dad and let's just raise a son.' And though we're not together, that's exactly what we're doing."

"In songwriting, it's natural to make music for yourself. The hardest thing was finding balance between making music [for myself] and something the consumer can enjoy."
