Ceelo Green became the subject of hundreds of memes when he turned up to the Grammy Awards in a bizarre gold ensemble.
The 42-year-old singer arrived at the awards ceremony at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Sunday night (12Feb17) wearing an entirely gold outfit, consisting of a gold gown, face paint and prosthetics, to introduce his new alter ego “Gnarly Davidson”.
CeeLo’s unique look quickly led to some hilarious comparisons from fans, who took to social media to share their thoughts.
One compared CeeLo to a Ferrero Rocher chocolate, which famously comes wrapped in gold foil, writing: “Why is cee lo green out there looking like a ferrero rocher?#GRAMMYs”, while someone else took the comparison to another level by labelling him an “angry Ferrero Rocher”.
Others compared the Forget You star to a Power Ranger, or C-3PO from Star Wars. Another wrote, “Why does ceelo green look like he’s about to announce his role in the next avengers?”, while someone else added, “Cee Lo Green on the #GRAMMYs red carpet looking like a Snitch that escaped the Quidditch World Cup”, and another person tweeted, “CeeLo Green lookin like he just killed all the Power Rangers.”
CeeLo first introduced his alter-ego last December (16), when he dropped the video for his persona’s first single F**k Me, I’m Famous.
“In the words of Iggy Pop, and I quote…Look out honey cause I’m using technology…Ain’t got time to make no apology,” he explained. “Well in that case I may as well be called TECHNOLOJESUS !!! But you can call me GNARLY DAVIDSON FOR SHORT.
“My disciples will dance and worship the sound I talk on. You see? Audacity is the first instinct of art itself and with a lil’ jolt of juxtaposition the flat line will again become a vital sign FOR I HAVE GIVEN LIFE to living dead. Soon and very soon… IM GOING TO BE FAMOUS! F**K ME.”
