Cee Lo Green to detail 'surreal and extraordinary' life in memoirs
Singer's unnamed tome will publish his life-story in 2013
Billboard reports that the 'Forget You' singer has struck up a book deal with Grand Central Publishing to pen his life story, with the tome set to be co-written by Rolling Stone scribe David Wild.
In a statement, Green said: "FORGET YOU? After reading my book, there will be no doubt that I am meant to be. You will enter into the supernatural, the surreal, and extraordinary."
He went on to add:
As Cee Lo Green, a.k.a 'everybody's brother,' I will make you believer. I talk about art imitating life; YOU discover CRAZY.
Vice-President and Editor-in-Chief of Paperbacks at Grand Central Publishing Beth de Guzman, meanwhile, said: "He dresses in sequined capes, performs with the Muppets and Madonna, and does 360° flips with a grand piano at his fingertips. Imagine all that outrageously unique and creative talent channeled into a book."
Green released his last solo album 'The Lady Killer' in November 2010, and is also currently appearing as a judge on the US reality TV show The Voice. He also joined Madonna onstage for her half-time show at this year's Super Bowl earlier this month (February 5).
