Cee Lo Green Causes Uproar By Changing John Lennon Lyrics, Responds To Fans

The Soul Machine says that he didn't mean to offend any fans for changing lyrics to "Imagine."

During his performance on New Year’s Eve, Cee Lo Green performed John Lennon’s classic song “Imagine” and changed a few of the lyrics at the end of the song. For his rendition, Cee Lo altered the last lines - “Nothing to kill or die for / And no religion, too” - to “And all religion’s true.”

After causing uproar on the Internet, the Goodie Mob member took to Twitter to explain why he changed the lyrics to the song.

“Yo I meant no disrespect by changing the lyric guys! I was trying to say a world were u could believe what u wanted that's all,” he wrote. The tweet has since been deleted.

Watch the performance below.
