Cee-Lo Conquers His Own Fear with ‘Ophidiophobia’
"I caught wind of the project through Internet buzz," Cee-Lo says, "and of course, Sam Jackson is the man."
That's Samuel L. Jackson, of course, the star of 'Snakes' and self-proclaimed badass. But the rapper says that's not the only inspiration he had for contributing the song 'Ophidiophobia' (the fear of snakes) to the movie's soundtrack, due Aug. 15. "I actually pulled from my own fear of flying," he says. "So, it's like a prayer as well. But I was really just trying to impress Sam Jackson."
