CeeLo Green’s Grammy Outfit Is Internet Gold

“Forget You”? Not when you’re wearing gold from head to toe.

CeeLo Green may have not nabbed gold on Sunday night, but he showed up to the Grammys in an ensemble that instantly won the internet.

From C-3PO to a Power Ranger, from Ferrero Rocher chocolate to a Louis Vuitton purse, social media users compared the singer — who wore a long-sleeved metallic gown with a gold mask and glove — to everything under the sun, churning out meme after meme. Green was a good sport and even retweeted some of the reactions to his getup.

He wore the black version of the same outfit at Primary Wave’s 11th annual pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Here are some of the funniest tweets below:

“When Cee Lo Green looks like a Ferrero Rocher.

“Cee Lo Green out there lookin like C-3PO,” @grantedluke tweeted.


“Cee Lo Green out here looking like Goldust #GRAMMYs,” @rbelk_94 said.

“Cee Lo Green showing up to the Grammys looking like a handbag,” @huganomics said.

“Cee Lo Green pulled up the Grammys like a youth basketball participation trophy that left its ball at the crib… smh,” @SteadyLosing added.

“Cee Lo Green forcin it tonight this man look like The Thing from Fantastic Four #GRAMMYs,” @nashatton said.


Green, a three-time Grammy winner, was not nominated for an award this year.
