• Ne-Yo: Hillary Clinton Is ‘A Favorite Of Mine’

    Surprise! Another celebrity backs Hillary Clinton for president.

    Grammy-winning artist Ne-Yo has a song title in mind for the presidential candidate he’s likely to support in 2016: “Superwoman.”

    “Ms. Clinton — Mrs. Clinton, I should say, she’s a favorite of mine,”Neyo said at a Tuesday night concert at Library of Congress, the venue for The ASCAP Foundation’s annual “We Write the Songs” concert.

    The “Miss Independent” singer and songwriter performed a pro-President Obama anthem titled “Forward,” during the last election, and Ne-Yo says a 2016 White House contender could provide inspiration for his next hit.

    The entertainer, 35, says he’s been a fan of the former secretary of State “since the Clinton administration.”

    “So yeah, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with her. Looking forward to seeing what happens to her when she gets into a position of power, so to speak,” Ne-Yo added.

    The concert was heavily attended by lawmakers, including Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Reps. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), Billy Long (R-Mo.), among many others — to celebrate the donation by The ASCAP Foundation of original manuscripts, lyrics sheets, and other musical documents to the Library of Congress.

    Ne-Yo was more modest when first asked about who he would cheer on in 2016.

    “I don’t know yet, let’s see what 2016 has to offer,” he said with a smile, “I know we got some sort of females running,” he said, before throwing his support behind Clinton. “I’m all for that. I’m all for change.”
