Cee Lo Green at the Red Bull Soundclash, Las Vegas 2011 Zach Cordner/Red Bull Content Pool

Despite fears that his replies might be as rude as his massive hit single, The Red Bulletin quizzed Grammy Award winner Cee Lo Green...

The last few weeks in Cee Lo Green’s life have been more exciting than many other pop stars’ entire careers. In a feathered Muppets outfit, the US soul singer teamed up with Gwyneth Paltrow on stage at the Grammy Awards, where he won not just a golden gramophone, but also the audience’s sympathy. Soon after, he scooped the prize for Best International Male Solo Artist at the Brit Awards, and just recently he entered the ring at the Red Bull Soundclash in Las Vegas to take on fellow musicians The Ting Tings in a creative battle. It was a brilliant show, witnessed by 6,000 spring breakers, and both acts finished with a collaborative rendition of Cee Lo’s hit Forget You.

And that’s not all. His new tune Bright Lights, Bigger City, from his album The Lady Killer, is just about to be released, and his European tour kicks off in early April. The Red Bulletin broke into his schedule to ask him to think fast and give his off-the-cuff responses to our nosy questions.
