“Jay Z is the king
And I’m probably his biggest fan
But there’s a feeling inside that he’d surely understand
I’m in love with B and I want to be her man.”
Ceelo’s Golden C-3P0 outfit may have been a stroke of self-promotional genius with a dash of metaphorical symbolism. It seems like he wished to replicate a golden statue in the hope that Beyonce could take him home; if/when she inevitably did not win Album Of The Year. Or maybe it was just a flamboyant and self-promotion expression of his alter-ego Gnarls Davidson. Either way, he looked ridiculous! But ridiculous also boosted his notoriety up a few notches on the social media Richter scale.
Equally ridiculous is the video for Jay-Z’s girl
Music historians will recognise CeeLo’s ‘Jay’s girl’ as a revamp of Rick Springfield’s 1981 song ‘Jessie’s girl’
In truth, there are most likely many people in the Bey-hive that would secretly or openly like to ‘have Jay Z’s girl’. Beyonce is a global superstar with many adoring fans.
