Ne-Yo wears many hats.
The singer/songwriter/producer/actor/dancer — who’s almost never spotted without a hat atop his head — recently revealed just how important the accessory is to him.
During his performance at Headliner Market Group’s 6th Annual Overtown Music & Arts Festival in Miami on Saturday, we’re told fans were “begging for Ne-Yo to throw his hat at the audience,” to which he responded, “You know these hats are like my children.”
“I can’t just throw my children!” he exclaimed.
“It’s kind of hard for me to wear the same hat twice,” Ne-Yo told the Post last year. “I haven’t counted [my collection] in a really long time, but the last time I did I had roughly 12,000. They’re kind of scattered all over the place — I have personal storages pretty much all over America. But the crazy thing is, I always know which one I want: and I always know where that one is.”
Rocking a feathered fedora at the Miami event, the “World of Dance” judge, 39, belted out some of his hits including “So Sick,” “Miss Independent, “Sexy Love” and “Closer.”
Other performers included Mario, Jagged Edge, Melanie Fiona, Tank and Pleasure P.
