The Black Eyed Peas' final concert of 2011 next week at Sun Life Stadium promises to be a full-blown pop spectacle. Promoters are hyping it as "the biggest party in South Florida" and promise "an all-star cast of friends," including Sean Kington and Flo Rida.
But perhaps the gnarliest guest of all is that chubby little dude with abnormally small hands, known by his legions of fans as Cee Lo Green. After kicking it Miami Gardens-style with Fergie Ferg and the Black Eyed Peas, Green will be hosting an official Downtown Miami afterparty at Blue Martini Lounge.
It's hard to believe that "Fuck You!" is already a year old. The catchy song with a clever narrative that catapulted Green into mainstream superstardom has been covered by everyone from Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump to William Shatner. However, it was Gwyneth Paltrow who truly butchered the track, first on Glee and then at the Grammys.
Thankfully, none of those aforementioned acts are scheduled to appear at Blue Martini next Wednesday. Just Cee Lo Green and his wacky, larger-than-life persona, mouthing the "Fuck You!" chorus for a roomful of drunken BEP fanatics.
