CeeLo Green to Write Memoir, Will You Read It?

by Britni Danielle

After CeeLo’s mega-hit ‘F–k You’ blew up radio stations and award shows last year, it seems like mainstream America finally knows who this former Goodie Mob member is. Since donning his outlandish, rainbow-colored outfits and rocking shows coast-to-coast, Green has landed major gigs like hosting NBC’s hit show the Voice. Now CeeLo is adding another title to his name: Author.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, CeeLo has just inked a deal with Grand Central Publishing to write a memoir. Beth de Guzman, Vice-President and Editor-in-Chief of Paperbacks at Grand Central Publishing says CeeLo’s outrageous personality made it impossible for them to turn down the project.

“He dresses in sequined capes, performs with the Muppets and Madonna, and does 360° flips with a grand piano at his fingertips.  Imagine all that outrageously unique and creative talent channeled into a book,” de Guzman said.

CeeLo is excited about working on the book. He issued a statement saying, “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.”

The book will be co-written by David Wild of  Rolling Stone and feature reflections from his fellow Goodie Mob bandmate Big Gipp.

    He’s talented but something about this guy just irks me, can’t really explain it, so I’m gonna have to pass on this memoir of his. lol

    I wish celebrities would write coming-of-age books instead of memoirs. It’s not like they are 85.

    LOL! I’m with you.

    The only thing I want Cee-Lo Green to write is new material for the new Goodie Mob album…and please, no singing!!!!

  • Velma

    Oh yes I would love to read it! He’s a very creative brother. I’m still wondering what happened with his first marriage…they looked so very happy.

  • Ms. Information

    He’s been through hell…I grew up with him and the death of his mother affected him in so many ways…I hope he tells his story…there is a lot that people don’t know.

    Nope….not even remotely interested in reading about this man, and I read biographies, and auto-biographies all of the time. It irks the hell out of me to even look at CeeLo. I don’t get the fascination that some people have with him. I think for some people he has that Sunday go to meeting presence when he’s on stage. Definitely not my cup of tea.

    Velma: Marriage….what marriage?!?

    It’s funny how many people know him as a solo artist, or listen to Gnarls Barkley, but have no damn clue about Goodie MOB.

    Also funny how the less substantive his music becomes, the more popularity he gains.

    Plus, his constant objectification of women on The Voice is as tiresome as it is offensive.

    He was married to his daughter’s mother, who was had an episode of “My Super Sweet 16″.
