Singer-songwriter Ne-Yo is lending a hand to shock rocker Marilyn Manson's upcoming project. No stranger to writing for big names in the industry, including Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, John Legend and Britney Spears, Ne-Yo will team up with Manson to crank out a few hit songs. "I'm sitting down next with Marilyn Manson so we can write songs for his new album," Ne-Yo said in a recent interview.

Always a gentleman, and a professional, the R&B singer claims he's going in the studio with a clear head. "I don't have preconceived notions about what he is musically, the clothes he wears, none of it," Ne-Yo admitted.
"People might think it's a strange collaboration, I don't. But don't worry -- you won't see me adopting his style. I don't think you'll ever see me in make-up."
