CEE LO GREEN: SINGER RIPPED FOR CHANGING LYRICS TO LENNON'S "IMAGINE"
PASADENA, California (AP) -- Cee Lo Green says he meant no one any harm when he changed one of the lines in the John Lennon song he performed live on TV on New Year's Eve. Green was criticized by fans of the slain former Beatle for substituting his own words for part of the lyric of the classic tune. Green changed the line that said "Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion, too." Green sang instead "Nothing to kill or die for and all religion's true." While Lennon fans were upset, Green defended himself. He says he believes in individuality and that an artist should speak what's in his mind and heart. He spoke Friday at a session with the Television Critics Association.
