Smooth singer NE-YO is planning a bizarre collaboration - with goth rocker Marilyn Manson.
The So Sick hitmaker, who is famed for his gentlemanly manners, is about to hit the studio with hard rocker Manson to record a new song.
He tells British newspaper the Daily Star, "I've wanted to work with him for ages and his people reached out to me when they heard.
"I have no idea what the music will sound like or what direction we'll take, but it will be really cool. We're obviously two separate sides of the musical extreme but that's what makes it exciting.
"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."
