Cee-Lo says "Fuck You" is a work of art
and radio play for the song wasn't thought
of until after the song was released.
It has only been a matter of days since singer/rapper
Cee-Lo Green released the controversial track “Fuck You”
and the song is still being widely talked
about both on and off the internet.
Cee-Lo recently spoke with the Associated Press about the song,
which will be featured on his upcoming album The Lady Killer.
In his interview with the AP,
the Goodie Mob/Gnarls Barkley member explained
that “Fuck You” is a work of art in his opinion.
"What I've tried to accomplish,
like, is making art products ...
so I still believe that (the song) can be
classified as art because it's an original piece
and the edge and alternative is there,
and the integrity is intact," said Cee-Lo.
Although Cee-Lo wasn’t worried about
radio play when “Fuck You” was initially released
the song will in fact be put in rotation on
radio stations across the country.
The radio-friendly version of
“Fuck You” will be titled “Forget You.”
"It wasn't like we were looking for it
to be a radio hit of some sort,” Cee-Lo explained.
“It was only until a short time after that
we considered doing a clean version just in case.”
Cee-Lo’s solo album
The Lady Killer will be released on December 7.
