CeeLo Green Discusses Inspiration For 'Robin Williams' (Top Story)

On Monday CeeLo Green Discusses Inspiration For 'Robin Williams' was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) CeeLo Green released his new studio album Heart Blanche last Friday. Radio.com recently sat down with Green to discuss his first new release in nearly five years and its lead single "Robin Williams".

"I took it really personally," says Green of William's suicide. "It intrigued me so deeply, about how is that possible, the contradiction of the character, someone who's so convincingly and so consistently gave of himself with the most sincere smile, tireless energy and animation."

"So I wanted his legacy to be celebrated in song," CeeLo continues. "And also it's an opportunity, as music often is for me, to be cathartic, and I can address my own empathy about it, you know what I'm saying? Because it was very sobering; you get to reflect on your own mortality as well and the different things that have brought us close to a break. You question the things of what could actually happen in my life that could possibly drive me? It becomes you own inner dialogue about it, and it becomes something that you have to kind of acknowledge with reverence." Read more - here.
