Cee Lo penning his memoirs

Cee Lo Green is to release his autobiography.

Cee Lo Green is to release his autobiography.

The 'Bright Lights Bigger City' hitmaker and 'The Voice' judge is writing a memoir that promises to take readers into the "supernatural" and "surreal", with the book expected to be published in 2013.

The 37-year-old singer said in a statement: "Forget You? After reading my book, there will be no doubt that I am meant to be. You will enter into the supernatural, the surreal, and extraordinary.

"As Cee Lo Green, a.k.a. 'everybody's brother', I will make you a believer. I talk about art imitating life; YOU discover CRAZY."

Rolling Stone contributing editor and television writer David Wild will co-author the book, and Cee Lo's singing partner Big Gipp is also in line to contribute.

Beth de Guzman, Vice-President and Editor-in-Chief of Paperbacks at Grand Central Publishing, which has acquired the book, cannot wait for Cee Lo's "outrageously unique" talent to be converted into print.

She explained: "He dresses in sequined capes, performs with the Muppets and Madonna, and does 360 degree flips with a grand piano at his fingertips.

"Imagine all that outrageously unique and creative talent channelled into a book."

Cee Lo is currently in his second season as a judge on the US version of 'The Voice', and his singing talents have seen him win five Grammy Awards.
