Cee Lo to Premiere Late-Night Talk Show on Fuse
Cee Lo Green is a busy man these days. The Gnarls Barkley frontman is less than a month away from releasing his third solo album ‘Lady Killer,’ but in the meantime, he’s also gearing up for the launch of his new late-night talk show on the Fuse network.
The new program, ‘Lay It Down’ is set to premiere on October 20, and it will focus on what the talented musician knows best — music, of course. “I’ve interviewed the likes of Ludacris, T-Pain, Janelle Monae [and] Public Enemy,” Cee Lo told Rap-Up recently. “This is all in the first season, so just those few names alone lets yo know how diverse the guests will be. There of course, there’s me. I am a fan of music so I get a chance to shine a spotlight on that.” Additional guests are set to include Lil Jon and N.E.R.D.
The new show will debut just one week after Cee Lo revealed that he chose to turn down a judging spot on Fox’s hit show, ‘American Idol.’ “I don’t think I would’ve been up for doing it,” he told Vibe. “I’m not a judge of people. I observe, but I don’t judge people.”
Cee Lo’s third solo effort ‘Lady Killer’ is currently scheduled to drop on Nov. 9. His viral hit song ‘F— You,’ has made the veteran rapper/singer the talk of the town, just in time for his album release.
