Cee Lo's new memoir title: Forget You? (wink, wink)

Posted By on Tue, Feb 28, 2012 at 2:22 PM

Cee Lo Green has announced plans to release a memoir in 2013. And his statement about the book sounds as CRAZY as his artistic evolution from original A-Town hard head to Goodie Mob front man to international soul man has been: “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.”

The memoir, to be penned in conjunction with Rolling Stone reporter David Wild and fellow Goodie Mob member Big Gipp, will be titled Forget You?, with an intended wink being that it's the same radio-friendly title of his original 2011 solo hit, "F*ck You." Which reminds me of last year's SNL skit in which Cee Lo and Gwynneth Paltrow kept cussing all over the forgetting place.

Really, I could care less about the title, as long as he tells the story behind Shannon McCollum's photo above. But like the yin/yang title of his first solo album Cee Lo Green and His Perfect Imperfections (2002), I imagine it will also focus on the serious stuff, revealing the personal and spiritual side that has consumed and inspired a large part of his discography, including the loss of his parents — both of whom were ministers — at a young age.
