R&B singer Ne-Yo has responded to critics going hard at him over a lackluster NBA All-Star Weekend performance last night (February 17) in Houston, Texas.
Although Ne-Yo admitted he could have performed better, he did not hesitate to share a few words to his haters.
"Shout out to those showing love. Everybody has an off day....all good. F*ck any and all haters. Talk it while I live it b*tches!!!," Ne-Yo tweeted late Sunday (February 17) night. (Ne-Yo's Twitter)
During the NBA All-Star Game introductions, Ne-Yo performed a few notable hits including "Let's Go" and "Let Me Love You."
Prior to Sunday's NBA All-Star Game, Ne-Yo got the crowd and the players pumped up with an energetic performance. The R&B gentleman kicked off the festivities with a medley of "Let's Go," "Let Me Love You," and "Forever Now" as the East and West teams were introduced. He worked up a sweat on stage and changed his wardrobe multiple times during the dance-heavy set. (Rap-Up)
G.O.O.D. Music's John Legend came through to perform the game's "Star-Spangled Banner."
Singer John Legend knows how to make his country proud. On Sunday evening (Feb 17), the raspy-voiced singer took on the "Star-Spangled Banner" at the 2013 NBA All-Star Game in Houston, TX. Legend performed the anthem a capella, making it more simple yet very intimate and captivating. Making heart-warming music is nothing new to him, either. Legend is busy planning the release of his fourth studio album Love in the Future, which is actually said to be complete. (The Honesty Hour)
R&B music continued to thrive throughout the night as Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys took center stage at halftime.
Alicia Keys performed at halftime of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game in Houston. It's important to note the game was in Houston, because Keys started the show with a version of Empire State of Mind. In case you're unfamiliar with the song, it involves shouting "New York" a lot and talking about how great New York is. It was as weird and awkward as it sounds. (SB Nation)
