Cee Lo Green'The Voice' judge and Gnarls Barkley frontman Cee Lo Green has released a statement addressing a controversial tweet he sent on Friday. In the statement, he apologizes for questioning the sexuality of a music critic who wrote a negative review of his performance in Minneapolis, Minn.

'City Pages' music editor Andrea Swensson called Cee Lo's opening performance during Rihanna's June 16 'Loud' tour stop "lackluster" and "gross." Cee Lo then expressed his feelings via Twitter, accusing her of being gay, and echoing the refrain of his recent hit song, 'F--- You.'

"I respect your criticism, but be fair! People enjoyed last night!" Cee Lo wrote. "I'm guessing you're gay? And my masculinity offended you? Well f--- you!"

Cee Lo then semi-apologized for the tweet, which he quickly deleted, in yet another tweet that he also quickly deleted. "Apologies gay community! what was homophobic about that? I said I was guessing he way gay which is fine but its nice to what u think of me," he wrote.
