'So Sick' singer Ne-Yo claims his hats feel like body parts and he once spent £5,000 on a piece of headwear
Ne-Yo once spent £5,000 on a hat.
The 'So Sick' hitmaker is known for his trademark headwear and admits he spends so much time wearing them that they feel like a body part.
He said: "The most money I've spent on a hat is anywhere from three to five grand. Even if I ended up living in a box I wouldn't regret it because even in my box I'd look damn good in my $5000 hat.
"I've been wearing hats since the beginning of high school and they're like a part of my body now. I'd shower in a hat if it made any sense. But it doesn't so I don't."
The singer also admitted he would prefer to be shorter as he thinks tall people look silly when they dance.
He added: "I'd rather be shorter than taller. I'm about 5ft 8ins. If I was 6ft 9ins, dancing would look funny on me."
