Coachella 2011: Cee-Lo Green Coachella Performance

17 Apr

Cee-Lo Green marked one of the first performances at this years epic Coachella Music Festival, but it was probably one of Cee-Lo’s least favourite performances of his career. Not only did he show up 25 minutes late, but, during his performance of the Gnarls Barkley hit “Crazy,” Coachella staff told Cee-Lo that he only had time for one more song, causing him to angrily throw his sweat towel on the drum set. He then told the crowd, “They’re fucking rushing me, man. We’ve got one more song we can do, man… I’m pissed, too, bra! I’m fucking pissed off, man. I snap in this shit.” He then got the crowd to raise their middle fingers before playing the unclean version of “Forget You” (let’s all be serious, it’s “Fuck You”). Near the end of the song he tries apologizing to the crowd. “I wish I could have done a better show for y’all, I’m so sorry,” he said. “I hope y’all enjoy the rest of the show, okay? It’s all my fault, blame me man. But whatever you fucking do, don’t stop believing!” Nothing is better than an enthusiastic crowd singing along with Cee-Lo Green to Journey’s hit “Don’t Stop Believing,” right? Well, apparently the Coachella staff didn’t think so, as they cut the song short. You can watch all of the Cee-Lo drama unfold in the video above, as well as enjoy how awesome the guy is live, despite having the strangest touring band.
