In other news: Cee Lo sort of apologizes, sort of doesn’t, for singing that song at Obama fundraiser

Cee Lo Green has kinda-sorta apologized for singing the original, non-radio-friendly version of “Forget You” at a fundraiser for President Obama in Atlanta Friday night. The president had not yet arrived at the $500-minimum party at Tyler Perry Studios when the singer launched into the expletive-laden tune, but enough folks were on hand with cameras to capture it. (Bleeped version of the performance here courtesy of Fox News.) “It was a mistake sir,” he tweeted over the weekend, in response to a chastising fan, but, less repentently: “All of you heard the song a thousand times so don’t get all saint on me.”
