Cee-Lo faced backlash after he sat down for an interview and called out Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj for their sexually explicit content -- now he's apologizing.
"There seems to be a misunderstanding with a quote taken from an interview I did a few days ago while promoting my new project," he wrote.
"Firstly, I'm an advocate of artistic freedom and expression as well as a fan of Nicki, Cardi and Megan [sic]. I know most of them personally and consider Cardi & Offset family.
"Therefore, I would never disrespect them by any means. I acknowledge them all as powerful, beautiful and influential women… and professionals. I wholeheartedly apologise to each of them for the inconvenience they have been caused due to a snippet of my interview being used as a headline, and in turn creating controversy and disconnect between me and these ladies as well as their fans."
He added: "Know that I support everyone who is part of our community & culture. Always have and always will! Much love to all the female artists who are running the game and handling their businesses."
Just a few days ago, CeeLo said of Cardi and Meg:
"Attention is also a drug and competition is around. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position.
"I get it, the independent woman and being in control, the divine femininity and sexual expression. I get it all but it comes at what cost?"
He also called Nicki Minaj "desperate."
