Rihanna Adds Cee Lo Green To Her Loud Tour

We were hoping Willow Smith would be named Rihanna’s support act on her North American Loud tour, but we got the next best thing: Cee Lo Green! The always impeccably costumed singer will be RiRi’s opening act as she tours the U.S. and Canada this Summer. Let’s hope the parents of RiRi’s younger fans don’t mind them hearing a big “FU” during the show, though hearing your child chant  “S-S-S-and-M-M-M” is probably just as unnerving.

The pop star has even added 10 more dates to her tour following her Grammy win for Dance Recording — view the updated tour schedule below.

“I’m a huge fan of Cee Lo since his days with Goodie Mob and with Gnarls Barkley. He’s a musical genius, continually reinventing himself, and I’m thrilled to have him join me on tour,” said Rihanna in a statement.

“I want to thank Rihanna for inviting me on our version of 50 First Dates, only difference is she’s unforgettable fine,” added Cee Lo. “Don’t tell her I have a crush on her, don’t wanna mess everything up. But honestly it’s an honor and a blessing to be able to go out with a talent such as hers and I look forward to doing my part to make the tour unforgettable for the fans that come out and see us.”
