R&B songwriter/performer Ne-Yo, whose "Year of the Gentleman", is set to debut at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart next week (behind METALLICA's "Death Magnetic"), has told UK's Daily Star that he is preparing to collaborate with shock-rocker Marilyn Manson. "We're about to go into the studio together," he said. "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."
