Ne-yo - Ne-Yo not a perfect gentleman

Ne-Yo sings about the ''imperfection of perfection'' on new album 'R.E.D.'

The US artist has a new song, 'The Cracks in Mr Perfect', which explains how everybody, including seemingly flawless stars, have their weaknesses.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''I'm a gentleman, but I'm a human being first, and a human being is not always polished and pretty.

'''The Cracks in Mr Perfect' speaks on the perfection of imperfection. Coming into the game, I didn't realise the perception of the artist as this perfect being.''

Ne-Yo, 30, almost called his album after the song, but was cautious of sounding like he was complaining about the privileged position he is in.

He said: ''It just seemed like an excuse to complain, I realise I have nothing to complain about.''

The singer and songwriter - who has previously worked with Michael Jackson, Mary J. Blige and Beyonce Knowles - credits his musical abilities to his mother, who encouraged him to express himself when he was younger.

He added: ''My mum saw I was a pent up kid. So she gave me a pen and said, 'Write it all down'.''

'R.E.D.' is released on Monday (05.11.12).
