Cee-Lo Green appeared on "The Colbert Report" last night, and Stephen Colbert found an interesting way to allow Green to sing his new hit "F**k You" without offending the network.
"As this is a family show, we can't be dropping the F-bomb," Colbert said, and suggested Cee-Lo replace the lyric with "something positive."
After rejecting "beef stew" and other substitutions for the song's expletive-laden chorus, Cee-Lo agreed to use Colbert's suggestion of Fox News. Colbert even provided Cee-Lo with a special verse to make the song make more sense:
"I saw you drivin' 'round town with the girl I love on Fox News/ Didn't see one politician that wasn't corrupt on Fox News And I got the blues/ The poor get poorer, the rich get richer. Ain't that some sh**? (Ain't that some sh**?) / I'm havin' pains in my chest because I'm so stressed from Fox News."
