Gwyneth Paltrow to Ruin Cee Lo's "Fuck You" on Saturday Night Live?

Plenty of excitement that Cee Lo Green will get a televised reward for his masterful The Ladykiller album in the form of a musical performance on NBC's Saturday Night Live. Until the Georgia Power tour with Big Boi starts circulating, this is how we'll get to see the Goodie Mob man sing his soul out. Judging by how well it went on the Colbert Report, this could be some seriously impactful television. The potential problem: Gwyneth Paltrow is hosting that night (January 15).

Now the Gleeks out there probably don't care much for what we think, but this is a huge problem for the posterity of "Fuck You" or, probably in this case, "Forget You."

There's nothing mentioned in the press materials about a duet between Cee Lo and Paltrow, but the synergistic effects (and viral haterism lying in wait) of these two performing the song that got the Glee treatment in the fall are too real to ignore. Read Jessica Suarez's comments at Stereogum if you need further convincing, or just watch Gwynnie turn this clever song into a steaming pile below. Should Cee Lo be forced to share the stage with this?
