Cee Lo Green, in his continuing quest to sparkle and shimmer his way through every publishing and promotional platform around–which really is a quest–is poised to bedazzle yet another medium: print. Grand Central Books commissioned a memoir, written with Rolling Stone‘s David Wild, that’ll drop 2013. Expect wacky stories, expect the outre, expect “insights” from singing partner Big Gipp, whatever those might be, and hopefully expect some mention of the days pre-Gnarls Barkley and especially pre-Cee Lo Is A Public Figure!
There’s just one thing we feel compelled to metnion. Notice something about the following Cee Lo statement? Despite the tone, that is, or the plug for his upcoming album?
“FORGET YOU? After reading my book, there will be no doubt that I am meant to be. You will enter into the supernatural, the surreal, and extraordinary. As CeeLo Green, a.k.a. ‘everybody’s brother,’ I will make you a believer. I talk about art imitating life; YOU discover CRAZY.”
Aw, c’mon, Cee-Lo. We know you know what the song’s really called. The bowdlerized copy will undoubtedly come later; why pre-empt it?
