Ne-Yo Believes Lady Ga-Ga is Not an Icon: Is this a Slam or the Truth?

 width=Ne-Yo is quoted by The Daily Star as saying: “Who was the last real icon to come out of the music industry?

“Everybody thought it was going to be Lady GaGa, but where is she right now, what’s going on with her?

“Not to take anything away from her because she’s ridiculously talented, but artists who stand the test of time – you just don’t see those any more.”

As the new Senior VP of A&R over at Motown, Ne-Yo also said: “Motown wants to breathe fresh air into R&B, but Motown was not always cutting-edge, it was soulful but good pop music too.”

Is Ne-Yo telling the truth or trying to sell records?
