Like You Wouldn't Watch A Sitcom Based On Cee-Lo Green's Life…

Cee-Lo Green has evolved past the rest of us mere mortals. He is now a franchise in human form.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the singer and judge for The Voice is close to developing a sitcom based on his life and experiences. Having inked a first-look deal with NBC, Green is executive producing the so-far-unnamed project alongside Everybody Hates Chris co-creator Ali Leroi and Happy Madison producer Doug Robinson. The family-friendly show will reportedly focus on how Green is able to balance the various aspects of his life, from family man to musician. Between working on his own show, working on another show, singing, performing, and handling his philanthropic interests, one has to wonder where Cee-Lo makes time to, I don’t know, eat a sandwich or get some sleep.

The Bad

Lil Wayne cited for messy yard

When you hear that Lil Wayne is in trouble for grass, your mind immediately goes to the illegal kind. But turns out he’s in trouble for, literally, grass. The lawn around his Louisiana mansion has grown unruly and neighbors in his gated community ain’t having it and have issued the rapper a citation. Nothing screams déclassé like a mansion with unkempt landscaping.

Madonna debuts Girl Gone Wild video

Madonna looks great for her age. We grant her that. But we find ourselves agreeing with Mr. Ostroff here that Madge has definitely been co-opting cool”first from Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., and now from herself twenty years ago. Madonna’s new video recalls Vogue with its black and white shots of taut, gyrating gay men, but also Beyoncé’s Single Ladies and maybe even Michael Jackson’s Scream. Even if it’s derivative, Girl Gone Wild offers some good eye candy. Watch it below.
