Not having met Trey in person, I cant really judge but by what Ive heard and witnessed I think Trey is more confident than arrogant but I also think he has a tad bit of arrogance but "he walk like that cause he can back it up"...he isnt arrogant when it comes to his fans, or people in general or even to his talents as far as his career but when it comes to matters such as how great he is in bed, he has a touch of arrogance, which I LOVE...i mean you gotta have some balls and a bit of arrogance to say you make a woman think you invented sex...just sayin :)

well confidence and arrogance are too different things...and I wasn't trying to call out anybody
I'm merely reading and replying lol

and yes I can be "arrogant" just as how Trey IS arrogant...

I've never met Trey but I have waited 9 hours for him when him came over to the UK with neyo but unfortunately he couldn't stop because he was late. I understand why some people may think that's arrogant but that's how it is.. I love him & I know how much love he gives to his fans & not to mention his Angels & he appreciates every single one of them.
Congratulations to each & every person that has had the opportunity of meeting Trey!
:)

Trey is def not arrogant @ all. I met him at 106 and park and then again at his Love Faces Tour. He is very humble for a popular celebrity. He loves his fans dearly.

@SShorty
I said that we show our CONFIDENCE when we get our hair and nails done, etc.
Some people, you included, think that just because Trey is confident, it means that he's arrogant. I used that example to show that there is nothing wrong with being confident.
Thanks for cracking open your dictionary and thesaurus, though. If your able to read with comprehension, then you'll discover that YOU come across as arrogant.
Good try at calling me out though.

There is arrogant and there is modest, true. But there is an in between. Some people only see what they want to see in a person.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

It's not about sugar coating anything it's about what people see in a person. You see arrogance and many others don't. We all have moments when we think we are grand and Trey is no different. When I see Trey I look at a brother that thinks highly of himself and there is nothing wrong with that. Just because he called out that model doesn't make him arrogant perhaps she wasn't doing her best during the photo shoot. Could he have kept the comment to himself yes, but he didn't and that is his prerogative. Many people have met this brother in person and for the most part have said he is a very nice humble person. Many people that have met him aren't super fans either.

SShorty's picture

I don't care how some of you want to sugar coat it...

Trey Songz IS arrogant lol

To Essence:

girls getting their hair did or nails done isn't arrogance lol

arrogance is "making claims or pretensions to superior importance or rights; overbearingly assuming; insolently proud"

synonyms: haughty, presumptuous, imperious, brazen

The opposite of that is meek, modest, and humble. Something he wasn't with the model from
the Vibe photo shoot, I believe it was...

Ariel:

I got you. There are times when he isn‘t in a flirtatious mood and when he is with certain women he just wants to lay back and have a good conversation. So you think your friend thought differently of him because he had groupies in his room. That would be the last thing that would surprise me or make me think differently of him. I just pray he uses sound judgment when it comes to the women he chooses to be with.

I know you are a Rider, you have been a fan from the beginning. I’m sure you do know a lot about him. :) I agree he is a very talented man and it amazes me how much music he has created. I’m still coming across his older stuff and loving most of it. I truly believe that there is no way he should be just getting recognition now. But I know everything is in God’s timing. He is a very inspirational person. I just love his work ethic and his level maturity. My mother keeps asking me are sure he is the age he says he is. Just a very articulate guy. Yup he probably said oh it’s Ariel I can me myself. I think that is a beautiful thing and I would feel pleased that he felt comfortable enough with you to be himself. So Trey is a lurker they say he lurks on Twitter. :)

from what ive heard and seen tremaine is not arrogant.

lisaleigh30's picture

Can't comment on his personality; neva met him
But he and my brother share the same birthday. If thier personalities are anything alike; don't take a chance meeting to explain personality.
Pay attention to the interviews in which he is most comfortable, because he will give you the real.

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

@JIMS I don't think theres phoniness there. He plays that character WAYYYYYYYY too well. He has developed his social skills to the umpteenth degree. He's a charmer. Thats who he is. But.... having to be in that role all the time would get old to me. Any chance I'd get, I probably want to take it down a few notches. You know? That friend flaked on me the next time Trey came to town (too bad cuz I got me & all my girls on the VIP list). She changed her views on him a lil bit.... (SN: it might be because he had 2 groupies we saw backstage up in the suite when we arrived)
But if yall dont know, I'm a RIDER for Trey! I know alot of stuff about him that might faze someone else but the guy is incredibly talented & I've grown madd love for him! I'm real as hell and I look at Trey as a role model & acquaintance and treat him as such. So, you're right, he did feel comfortable wit me. That night at the hotel he told me that he STAYED on TSMB.... "I'm prolly on there right now." *sat down at computer & pulled up TSMB* He was lurkin getting to know us all just as well as we were!

ros's picture

O MY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN NOT WAIT TO MEET THIS SEXY YOUNG THANG...LOL!

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Ariel:

So do you think there is an element of phoniness when he is backstage with his fans? Or is that truly who he is too? I can picture him being cold, sometimes it shows in his interviews. Perhaps the reason he didn’t have to up the charm is because he was familiar/comfortable with you. I never meet him but I know a lot people that have and they said the same thing about it just being you and him. I’m glad you didn’t let that experience change your view of him. And you are right it does give you a certain level of respect for him because he was able to be true to himself.

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

@JIMS ummmm... IDK it went both ways. My girl was like " you notice anything different about him? he seemed a bit.... colder." IDK. I think it was just because we were on Tremaine time, not backstage at the concert where he's getting paid. To me it was like he didnt have to charm & please us. Still the same outgoing personality... but it wasn't ABOUT me, really.... You know when you meet him it feels like you and him are the only people on the earth? Yea.

He didn't work so hard to be so charming. Just a real dude that had GREAT conversation. He felt that much more REAL to me. I respect him that much more. :)

Essence:

You are right if he was arrogant most of us would be turned off.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

I will say by viewing those videos Helen posted you can tell who was the dominate one in the relationship.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Ariel: Is the difference good or bad?

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

@Essence711 Its nice that you bring speak on the videos posted on Helen's youtube. That, is really Tremaine... we really got a quick look into his life. I got to spend exclusive time wit 'Tremaine' a few years ago and me n my girl both noticed the change from 'Trey Songz.' There is just something DIFFERENT about him.... I cant place my finger on it.

damienchristophermody's picture

I DON'T THHINK TREY IS IGNORANT AND I THINK HE'S A NICE GUY. I NEVER MET HIM, BUT I KNOW A MAN AS I SEE HIS VIDEOS AND INTERVIEWS.

Essence711's picture

I'll say that at times he can come across in a manner that we - the fans - aren't used to, but I wouldn't call it arrogance. He is a very confident man, but he isn't overbearing in that way. Most of us like him and we think that he's sexy, so we forgive his moodiness and call it part of his swag. If he was really arrogant, we'd be turned off by him, and we'd be saying, "Who the F does he think he is?" He can't be blamed if he looks in the mirror, sees his own handsome face and sometimes wants to show us that he knows why we go crazy over him.
Come on ladies, we show our confidence everyday. We wear make up, we get our hair and nails done, we wear clothes that flatter our figures, so can we be called arrogant if we accept a man's compliment, but not the offer of a date? He's human, not a robot, so he's not programmed to suit our perceptions. Remember, WE put him on that pedestal and we should accept him as he is.
I saw the video that S Shorty posted the link for. He and his friend, and Helen were talking about some chick they met who may have said or done something they didn't like. They talked about tipping her and Trey threw some money at the camera. The friend and Helen called the girl a bitch. Oh well, that was them in their private lives having fun. You could clearly see that Trey was tipsy in the video.
I saw another video of them driving around looking at houses that were decorated for Christmas. Trey was telling Helen to point the camera at certain displays and he sounded annoyed. Helen didn't complain, she did as she was told. It was a short clip, but it did give me a different outlook on their relationship. I was a little surprised at the tone he used while speaking to her. But, then again, it was them in their private time, doing what they do.
I think only those who truly know him would be able to say whether he's arrogant or not, and if they feel a certain way, they'll be the ones to speak on it.

i met him and spend a day with him and he is a really down to earth guy but i guess it to who he likes down get me wrong.

TEETIMME's picture

Another note I must add...in #lemmeholdatbeat he speaks very highly of himself, as if he knows why now the men are hatin on him when they actually should be thanking him bc he's helped a lot of men get what they want, hehe! I just love that SK SHIT, RIGHT ABOVE IT & HATE ME NOW! And DONT FORGET YOUR RING, I just have to either laugh or smile when I listen to those songs bc he talks much s*** but hes like the Tupac of R & B, he tells the truth!

TEETIMME's picture

Ive met Trey 3 times in the past 5 years & he was very nice & sweet & did everything I asked! In this industry, a certain level of arrogance is necessary bc if u dont think "youre the shit", then who will? (SK SHIT-#lemmeholdatbeat) At the same time he's very humble w/ his arrogance, and that's what I love about him! He knows he's the shit, knows he's good AT EVERYTHING HE DOES, but at the same time humble & very appreciative w/ success as his blessing! This man knows he's blessed by God! And we have to thank Mumma April, Grandmumma Rose & his aunts for doing a great job in helping raise him to know how & when to show his arrogance! Out of all the entertainers in the industry, hes one of the humble ones that I most admire, next to Denzel Washington, Will Smith, and a few others! Tremaine knows what his fans like bc he "listens" and tries to deliver! He learned the secret of success! ;)

Trey is very hip hop and braggadocio is part of the hip hop culture as explained in Wikepedia. Trey appears to be down-to-earth and humble when he wants to BUT he also can be very cocky. Listen to his lyrics. He has that bad boy edginess that many females find attractive especially so on a good looking confident man. It is part of that male aggressive that comes from that male hormone testosterone. Trey can get away with it as long as he treats his fans good and continues to look good and give his fans a good performance. He is an entertainer. He knows what he is doing and he knows what woman like. He is also humble and down-to-earth according to those who have met him. I like the hip hop Trey and the humble Trey and sometimes the vulnerable Trey which I don't think he wants anyone to see. He has a multi-faceted personality that makes him interesting.
