Cee Lo Green Tweets, Deletes Controversial Remarks About Rape
Cee Lo Green has put his foot in his mouth in a big way. The singer/rapper, who last week made a plea deal in a case involving slipping an ex-girlfriend with ecstasy and then having sex with her, commented on the incident on Twitter.

He wrote: "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously." He added, "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!"

"The Voice" judge also felt the need to point out that there was metaphorical "no broken glass" to prove the charges.

His ex-girlfriend claimed Green spiked her drink during a date in November, 2012, in Los Angeles and she la...

Cee Lo Green Avoids Jail Over Drug Charge Involving Ex-Girlfrien
Singer/rapper Cee Lo Green made a plea deal over an ecstasy charge and has been sentenced to three years of probation and community service.

Last year an ex-girlfriend accused "The Voice" judge, real name Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, of slipping her ecstasy before having sex with her after a dinner date. The anonymous plaintiff claimed Green spiked her drink during a date in November, 2012, in Los Angeles and she later woke up naked in a bed with him.

The Gorillaz star initially pleaded not guilty to the claim but later pled no contest to a felony count of sharing ecstasy in a deal that al...

Pharrell: 'Happy' Was Originally A Cee Lo Green Song

May 1st, 2014 4:03pm EDT
Pharrell
Pharrell should send a large gift basket to the producers who convinced Cee Lo Green to turn down the mega-hit Happy.

Pharrell told Howard Stern on his radio show he wrote the song and handed it over to Cee Lo Green to sing. Stern asked if Pharrell offered the tune to other musicians before handling himself, and the singer replied, "[Cee Lo Green] wanted to do it... he did do it."

Pharrell continued, "He sounded amazing on it. I mean, he burns my version. But the – how do I say this diplomatically? The powers that be, at the time, did not see it fit for him. Some folks on his team just fe...

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

December 9th, 2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though! This year,  I find myself...

Cee Lo Green Pleads Not Guilty To Charges He Spiked Ex's Drink With Ecstasy

October 22nd, 2013 5:00pm EDT
Cee Lo Green
"The Voice" judge Cee Lo Green has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge he secretly gave an ex-girlfriend ecstasy before having sex with her in 2012.

The plaintiff claims Green spiked her drink last November, and she later woke up naked in a bed with him.

Green will return to the courthouse next month for another hearing. If convicted, he could spend up to four years in jail.

Cee Lo Green Cleared Of Sexual Assault, 'The Voice' Job Not In Jeopardy

Cee Lo Green
Cee Lo Green has been cleared of sexual assault charges after he allegedly slipped ecstasy into a woman's drink at a restaurant, but still faces felony drug charges.

The charges stem from a year ago when Green and a woman ate at a downtown L.A. sushi restaurant. It's there that she claims he slipped the drug into her drink. She told cops she doesn't remember anything afterward, but woke up in his bed nude.

Green denied the story and encouraged law enforcement to investigate the claims. TMZ reports the District Attorney will formally drop the sexual assault charge, but is still considering...

Goodie Mob Returns After 14 Years With New Album, 'Age Against The Machine'

Goodie Mob Age Against The Machine
Cee Lo Green's Atlanta Hip-Hop group Goodie Mob is back together after a long hiatus, and the group released a new album, "Age Against The Machine", on Tuesday.

The new disc is the first ablum from the band in nearly 14 years, and Green says it's well worth the wait.

"I know it's exceptional," he tells USA Today. "Quality is imperative. Quartets are almost non-existent in hip-hop. Our collective understanding was to consolidate who we are and invest that energy back into us. We are earth, wind, fire and water."

That message is clear in the cover art for the photo, which features all four...

Cee Lo Green is very gassy, according to his "The Voice" co-judge Christina Aguilera. The songstress revealed his secret in a recent TV interview with Ellen deGeneres.

Aguilera stated that she doesn't like to sit too close to the not-so funky fresh star when they make appearances together.

She told DeGeneres, "(I'm sitting) between Blake and Cee Lo with his gas over there...That's why I have the fan, you know."

Afraid she may have upset her pal, Aguilera quickly laughed off her comment and added, "I love you Cee Lo. Don't be mad. Everybody knows."

Battle Rounds - Adriana Louise vs Jordan Pruitt
There's one last night of battles on The Voice, and just one steal left, which belongs to Christina Aguilera. This is crunch time...for this phase of the top-rated singing competition, anyway. So let's get right to it, shall we?

Tuesday night begins with Christina's team, specifically Adriana Louise and Jordan Pruitt, who get handed Katy Perry's "Hot and Cold." Jordan confides that she's surprised to see advisor Billie Joe Armstrong because he's so different from Christina. Billie Joe instantly picks up on Jordan's "professional" side, while Christina thinks Adriana is "holding ...

It's a new week of battle rounds on The Voice, with only two steals left to save hopeful artists who don't win their head-to-head matchups.

A shortened Monday night show - just one hour instead of two - opens with Team Cee Lo: it's Alexis Marceaux versus another returning singer, Daniel Rosa. Cee Lo has given them Adam Lambert's "Whataya Want From Me," which Nakia performed in season one, and he knocked it out of the park back then, so these two have no small quest in front of them. Advisor Rob Thomas cautions Alexis to relax on her diction, and notes Daniel's "confidence issues." ...

Not to mention: are any more battles going to be truncated for time like they were last Tuesday night?

This Tuesday night opens with Team Blake, as Liz Davis is matched with Nicole Johnson on a song that Blake knows well - his wife Miranda Lambert's hit "Baggage Claim." It's amusing to watch Blake quip that he's "met [Miranda] once or twice." Team Blake mentor Mich...

Team Cee Lo starts the evening, as Cody Belew takes on Domo, to the tune of Lady Gaga's "Telephone." Cee Lo thinks the song will allow them to do both singing and choreography at the same time, and therefore he can see which of them is "the total package."

We're a quarter of the way through Season 3! Monday night was the final evening of blind auditions on The Voice, with each of the coaches looking for two more singers to fill out their sixteen-member teams.

With things winding down, things are really being edited to be as dramatic as possible. We have Adam's "you're the best singer we've ever had" soundbite in the opening package, when we know that he really said Gracia Harrison was the best country singer the show has ever seen. Then there's Cee Lo saying he believes that the winner will come from Team Red Zone - if he'd said anyt...

As we head toward the finish of blind auditions, Tuesday proved to be a big day for The Voice. Against stiff competition, The Voice had less overall viewers than ABC's Dancing With The Stars (11.93 to 14.58), but won the coveted 18-49 demographic - and an expected renewal for seasons four and five from NBC. (This isn't really news given that the announcement of coach changes referenced both seasons four and five. But it's nice to hear formally.) So what's the show going to do on such a busy night? Continue filling out the teams, of course!

We're averaging one audition per each segment of the show, which seems to be stretching as far as we can go. Despite the pacing, there are some pretty talented folks - and one old friend - in Monday's batch of hopefuls.

Catching up from last week, Team Adam has 11 members so far, Team Blake has 7, Team Cee Lo has 10, and Team Christina has 11. And, in case you missed it last night, The Voice went home empty-handed at the Emmys, losing Outstanding Reality Series to The Amazing Ra...

'The Voice' News Roundup: 'Voice' Beats X Factor, Plus New Interviews With Season 3's Artists

September 13th, 2012 2:39pm EDT
The Voice
Right now, this picture is accurate. NBC may have been criticized for clearly counter-programming The Voice against rival The X Factor, but the Peacock got the last laugh as Voice beat Factor in the shows' first head-to-head battle this season. In last night's 8-9 PM hour, Voice delivered 10.66 million viewers to Factor's 7.45.

The X Factor was also defeated in its second hour by the finale of NBC's America's Got Talent, which earned just over 11 million viewers to the 9.49 of Factor.

However, 9.49 is still an impressive amount of viewers that any broadcast network would be happy to hav...
