Cee Lo Green Talks to Train About Song Inspiration and 'Trained Groupies' (VIDEO)

Train, 'Cee Lo Green: Talking to Strangers'Cee Lo Green ran the gamut in his interview with the band Train on 'Cee Lo Green: Talking to Strangers' (Wed., 11PM ET on Fuse). He talked with Patrick Monahan about the influences behind the song 'Drops of Jupiter,' which was inspired by the death of his mother.

Monahan got a little existential on Green, though, saying it was much more than him dwelling on that experience. After the lyric "I'm back in the atmosphere" came to him in his sleep, Monahan felt it was his mother wanting him to tell this story.

"I feel like I'm just a vehicle for the universe," he explained. "So I really respected what was happening that night."

Green then turned the interview around 180 degrees by asking what has to be one of the most inappropriately -- and yet brilliant at the same time -- worded questions ever put to someone.

"You're still married," he said to Monahan. "How do you stay sane watching these two other guys plow through millions of trained groupies?"

The answer doesn't even matter. We just wanted to sit in the moment where that question had just been asked of someone.

Scott Underwood did reword things slightly. Rather than "plowing," he said, "It's more like 'pounding.' We're kind of pounding our way through."

Now doesn't that sound so much better.
