Sigh! We should all know by now that we live in a very sensitive society and if we are involved in or with the media anything that is said runs the chance of being taken the wrong way and torn apart only to be put back together misconstrued. Sad, but true.
After reading the story of Cee Lo Green's New Year's Eve performance and how he altered the lyrics (just a tad) to the late John Lennon's song, Imagine, I thought...I'm in no way surprised. Viewing the clip, I didn't see anything wrong with what Cee Lo said, but this is John Lennon we're talking about. A legend who has thousands upon thousands of fans who could more than likely populate a small country. I could see why they got upset and with Twitter being the instant news source of social networks, the uproar swell becoming something that I think was taken a little more seriously than it should have been.
Cee Lo took to Twitter to defend why he changed the lyric from "Nothing to kill and die for, and no religion too" to "Nothing to kill and die for, and all religion's true.", saying "Yo I meant no disrespect by changing the lyric guys! I was trying to say a world were u could believe what u wanted that's all."
Personally, I get what Cee Lo was trying to say. Unfortunately, John Lennon fans didn't. What are your thoughts?
