Cee Lo's YouTube hit sparks parody

Sure, having a viral video is nice, but you haven’t really hit the masses until your YouTube hit is remixed or redone. Or both as is the case with Cee Lo’s “F**k You” video, which is, without a doubt, one of pop culture’s most memorable moments of the summer.

The video - originally released with lyrics flashing on the screen, karaoke-style - details the singer’s failed pursuit of a gold-digger. “I guess the change in my pocket wasn’t enough," he sings.

Last month, rapper 50 Cent got in on the fun when he created a verse from the perspective of the rich man who ended up with Cee Lo’s girl. “When the bills come your a** just can’t help,” he raps.

But the most recent version/parody of Cee Lo’s hit comes from actress/singer Whitney Avalon.

“After having Cee Lo Green's catchy anti-golddigger [sic] single ‘F**k YOU’ stuck in my head for a week, I wanted to pretend to respond to the song's allegations from the woman's perspective. Needless to say, in the spirit of the original, it contains explicit language,” Avalon wrote on her YouTube channel.

“And now I can’t fall asleep because you’re such a creep. You yell f**k you,” she sings.

      Why don't you take the time and find out who Cee Lo is and don't stereotype. U just assume because he's black that he lives in the projects? See with ignorance like that u just need not to say anything at all. One reason why this country cant ever move forward.

    Would've been better if she wasn't such a lousy singer.

    Meh! Sorry, the parodies don't cut it. Cee Lo still nails it each time.
