1. The radio edit of this song is called "Forget You" so as not to use the swear words "F**K YOU". What is your opinion about this? Do you think an artist should be free to use any language or should that be under control?

2. Cee Lo Green has a music project called "Gnarls and Barley" alongside DJ Danger Mouse. Watch out for "Crazy", the first single to go straight to #1 in the UK charts based on digital download sales alone. What do you think of this song?
