Cee Lo

Please UN-BAN Me

From Chattanooga!!

EXCLUSIVE

061913_cee_lo_launchCee Lo tells TMZ ... he feels terrible after being banned from a music festival in Chattanooga, TN for dropping too many f-bombs on stage -- and now he's begging for forgiveness.

It's a pretty crazy story ... the organizers of the Riverbend Festival blasted Cee Lo after his June 8 performance, claiming the singer completely ignored an agreement he made to put on a clean show for the "family" event. Instead, they say, Cee Lo cussed like a sailor.

Cee Lo also took heat for being late to the show ... though event organizers said there were delays at the airport that were beyond Cee Lo's control.

Still, when Cee Lo arrived to Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood last night, he had a message for Chattanooga -- "I apologize."

Forgive Cee Lo

  • Yes
  • No
Cee Lo acknowledges the profanity ... but says, "[It was] just a little cursing. The song IS called 'F**k You.'"

He adds, "Forgive me Chattanooga ... have me back, OK?"

So, we gotta ask ...

You failed to honor a pre-concert agreement, so you SHOULD be banned.
And if you don't like it, 'F**k You'.

Cee Lo should read his contracts before signing them.

I can not stand this guy. I never liked him but ever since he demolished a John Lennon song on NYE I really can't stand the site of him.

Why book someone with a provocative mouth if its a family event? His music isn't family friendly.

Why did they book a man who sings F you if they don't want cussing in front of the kids? I think some Baptist got up in arms at the last minute and nixed the act. These Bible belt people like to act all holy by not letting any F words taint their childrens' ears. Meanwhile the area is full of pedophilic satanic sex and ritual sacrifices.


This is like booking Marilyn Manson and expecting him to lead the church choir. If you want family music, book a family act, not some guy who is a rapper or hip hop or whatever he is.
