Notable/Quotable: Cee Lo Green on Sleeping With Three Women a Day

Comments (77)



"I'm definitely having more sex than the average man. Yes, two or three women a night, trust me. The other day I slept with two women -- not at the same time -- because I was at home and they missed me. But you know, these are my friends; we missed each other. So I just want to give joy and good tidings, that's what it's all about."

-- Grammy Award-winning rapper turned singer-songwriter Cee Lo Green on being sexually active with multiple women in his life. (The Sun UK)
