Singer/rapper Cee-Lo Green came under fire recently when he performed at a fundraiser for President Obama. Cee-Lo performed his hit song “F**k You” for a room full of Obama supporters. While some enjoyed the performance, others were outraged because they felt Cee-Lo should’ve done the clean version.
Cee-Lo stopped by The Tom Joyner Morning Show to explain his side of the story. Cee-Lo, who is finishing his tenure as a coach on the show “The Voice,” said he chose to do the song because it was famous enough for the attendees. “The Fundraiser was at Tyler Perry’s studios in Atlanta and they had three separate rooms. I was in the general admission room and the President or the First Family neither one we present when that little incident took place. I figured the song was famous enough and everybody was an adult in there.”

Cee-Lo also spoke to Tom Joyner about his general thoughts on the upcoming election and the first debate between Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama. Cee-Lo offered, “I think people need to be reminded that our president is not only black but he’s human. He can’t be a mechanic twenty four hours a day.”
