CeeLo Green took time out of his busy day of leading Willy Wonka’s workforce to talk shit about Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s WAP. CeeLo is on Team Pearl Clutchers and spoke to Far Out Magazine, calling the two “shameless” and “desperate” and suggested female rappers were immoral these days. Yeah, I miss wholesome 2003 female rap when Lil’ Kim rapped about her ill-deep throat and making a Sprite can disappear in her mouth, which shocked a teenage me. That sounded so dangerous! A Sprite can could block her airway!
CeeLo has opinions about female rappers like Nicki Minaj as well as Megan and Cardi’s new song which is all about wielding that wet pussy power. But pussy power is sickening to CeeLo. CeeLo is definitely someone who should speak about morals and female empowerment since he’s been accused of rape and suggested that it’s not considered rape if the woman is unconscious. Truly the voice of morality!
“A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level. There was once a time when we were savvy enough to code certain things. We could express to those it was meant for with the style of language we used. But now music is shameless, it is sheer savagery… You have the “Heads of State,” like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there in accolade: success, visibility, a platform to influence. Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate…”
Clearly this ass-hat forgot that Nicki’s song Anaconda was all about raising awareness of endangered snakes. Talk about using a platform! He also said that Cardi and Meg’s empowerment comes at a “cost.”
“Attention is also a drug and competition is around. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position. I get it, the independent woman and being in control, the divine femininity and sexual expression. I get it all. It comes at what cost?”
He said there “should be a time and a place for adult content,” and believes artists should hold each other accountable.
“As adults and artists, we should at least attempt to be each other’s accountability partners in some regard. The stereotypes that are celebrated and perpetuated, ultimately make the perception a reality. It is disenfranchising and it has caused a great deal of problems.”
Oh yes, CeeLo, the world needs more responsible and wholesome songs like your song about having sex with a dead body:
CeeLo: goodness gracious, women rapping about sex? is this appropriate?? could this harm society?? let's be responsible adults.

So there you go, according to the Gospel According To CeeLo, women rapping about sex is IMMORAL! But songs about fucking a dead body pass the moral check. Makes sense!
UPDATE: And now he’s sowwy!
