CeeLo Green Is in Love with Beyoncé in 'Jay Z's Girl' Video
CeeLo Green is professing his love for Beyoncé this Valentine’s Day.
Adopting his new alter ego Gnarly Davidson, the Goodie Mob MC unleashes “Jay Z’s Girl,” a remake of Rick Springfield’s classic ’80s jam “Jessie’s Girl.”
Directed by John Colombo, the music video stars Little Fun, who plays CeeLo’s stand-in. “Jay Z is the king,” he sings. “And I’m probably his biggest fan / But there’s a feeling inside that I’m sure he’d understand / I’m in love with Bey and I wanna be her man.”
In a room filled with posters that would make any member of the BeyHive proud, the young man celebrates Queen Bey, who even appears as a constellation in the sky when he looks out his window.
The miniature CeeLo Green also appeared in the clip for Gnarly Davidson’s previous single “Fuck Me I’m Famous,” which dropped back in December.
That same month, CeeLo announced Gnarly Davidson, a soloist not to be confused with his Danger Mouse duo Gnarls Barkley. That announcement came with controversy after a video showed a phone exploding in the singer’s face. Initially thought to be authentic, it was later revealed to be part of a marketing plan.
Gnarly Davidson also turned heads on the Grammy red carpet on Sunday (Feb. 12), when CeeLo showed up in an all gold outfit and mask. On Twitter, he shared a side-by-side portrait of himself with Queen Bey. “#GRAMMYS GOLD,” he wrote.
