Hola, readers, and welcome to Framed, the blog that's allowed America to laugh again. This week we invite you to look at a brand-spanking-new Cee-Lo Green video, "No One's Gonna Love You." It's some quality stuff!
Cee-Lo, who is one-half of Gnarls Barkley, is a multi-talented rapper from Atlanta who may be best known as a solo artist for last year's Grammy Award-nominated, expletive-laden song, "F**k You." "No One's Gonna Love You" is a cover of the classic Band Of Horses' song, and the vid takes us on a prolonged road trip with two lovers, where one thing leads to another. Cee-Lo himself doesn't actually appear in the video, which--to be honest--is the way we like it around here. Too many artists muck up these things, if you ask us.
Please enjoy this week's video and captions, which, this time, are intentionally funny! See you next week!
Important blog note! For the curious among you--and, frankly, we find all of you to be kind of curious--Rob O'Connor wrote captions 7 and 11 last week. We thank Rob and look forward to having him back for more guest captions in the future.
This week, our experiment continues and grows, as we welcome another great Y! Music blogger to our caption desk. We asked Dave DiMartino, who reviews new album covers every week, to join us for a gala captionfest, and Dave graciously agreed. To make it more interesting, we also asked him to write half of this week's captions--an honor indeed, even for a writer of Dave's stature.
So this week you're getting a rare two-voiced Framed. It's a foregone conclusion that our own captions will be show-stoppers, but can Dave meet our readers' high expectations?
Let's find out!
