Cee Lo on "Fuck You"

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "If you think about it, in literal terms, I saw them driving past, and I’m like, 'Fuck you!' But I didn’t say it to her; I’m just thinking it out loud. The song is about smiling in the face of adversity, and accepting and moving on. There's definitely a silver lining to it. It’s just meant to be funny, really. But there’s so much in music that my kids hear on a daily basis—I dare somebody to have a problem with this song!" —Cee Lo Green, the father of a 10-year-old, in response to fellow parents who can’t sing along with the irresistible chorus of “Fuck You” in front of their kids, interviewed by the L.A. Times’ Ann Powers.
