Ne-Yo: We Can Support Kanye Without Condoning Him (WATCH)

the real crew - 05-08-18

*On Tuesday, May 8, the hosts of “The Real” recap last night’s Met Gala red carpet and debate who wore what best! Co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley shares why she appreciates The Real being such a safe place to take risks, the ladies reveal what’s in their internet search histories, and gossip blogger Jasmine Brand stops by for Spill The Tea Tuesday!

Later, recording artist Ne-Yo stops by to talk about Season 2 of “World of Dance.” He also discusses Kanye West, and how he feels that, without condoning the rapper’s recent behavior, people should reach out and see if he needs help instead of tearing him down.

Ne-Yo: We Can Support Kanye Without Condoning Him

Ne-Yo: Kanye in the realm of Kanye is walking, talking, living, breathing passion, like – he’s passionate about something, and he is not good at holding his tongue when he is passionate about something –

Loni Love: Right.

Ne-Yo: So that’s, that’s the same Kanye. But with what’s being said right now…I mean, you can’t be black and not be offended by what was said – that’s, we got that. But on the other side of the same card, it’s like, when did it become, “Throw the whole dude away,” as opposed to, “Let’s help this dude, let’s pray for this dude.” Like where did that go?

[The Real audience applauds]

Jeannie Mai: Yeah.

Ne-Yo: You know what I mean? Like all right, what he said was, was disrespectful and hurtful in a lot of ways, but on the other side of it, it’s like, we gotta look out for us, man, it’s like, Kanye West is not a stupid guy. He’s very intelligent. For him to say some of the things that he said, clearly something’s wrong. And it’s not about “Crucify! Crucify!” That’s not what it’s about. It’s about how about somebody sit down and go, “Kanye, brah, let’s talk, man. What’s going on? You need a ear, you need a shoulder? What’s going on? Like where is that person? Where are those people at? I extended my hand – I don’t have Kanye’s current number anymore… I extended my hand like, “Brah, I don’t know what you’re going through but if you just need somebody to talk to, brah, call me.”

Jeannie: That’s great.

Ne-Yo: That’s what we need to be doing with Kanye right now. Not clowning him, not dissing him, not throwing him away. At least that’s how I feel about it.

Jeannie: We need to have more empathy at the end of the day because that’s always going to help the situation, for everybody.

Ne-Yo:  Yeah, yeah, that’s what I feel. And again, in no way am I condoning the things that he said.

Loni: Right.

Ne-Yo: Not at all. I just feel like it’s not about the teardown, it’s about the buildup.

Jeannie: Yup.

Adrienne Houghton: I hear that.
