CEE LO REVEALS HIS INSPIRATION FOR THE SONG "F-YOU" Cee Lo Green has finally named the targets of his hit song "F-You ," and their identity may surprise you. The song is written like an angry note from a spurned lover, but Ceelo says it's actually a metaphorical shot fired by an overlooked artist. "I'd been recording for three years and I had over seventy songs, and I was ready to be heard," he said. "But my label was just sitting on it, and it was very disheartening, not knowing if what I was doing was good enough. It seemed like I couldn't please anybody. So of course, figuratively, I was like, 'You don't you like me? Well f you!' It was very cathartic." The track went on to become the most popular of his career, surpassing even "Crazy," the hit single he recorded with DJ Danger Mouse under the name Gnarls Barkley. "F- You" was Time Magazine's No. 1 song of 2010; won a Grammy and was nominated for two others; and has sold more than 5 million digital copies. SHOULD SHE HAVE JUST KEPT SILENT?

I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times." According to sources, Tom's teammates feel betrayed by Gisele's behavior -- the Pats organization is a brotherhood and Gisele's pot shot violated the code -- which is basically win as a team, lose as a team.
