Ne-Yo to Aspiring Singer: Lose Weight if You Want to Be a Star

Singer/songwriter Ne-Yo recently advised an aspiring singer to drop a few pounds before trying to make it in the music business. The conversation between the R&B star and the unidentified woman finds Ne-Yo exposing the sad but very true restrictions in the entertainment industry.

The 29-year-old was informed that unless she wants to go the “Jill Scott route” or win an Oscar like Jennifer Hudson she’s pretty much stuck.
