Cee Lo Green Says He Was Raised To Be Sexy on 'Talking To Strangers' (VIDEO)

Cee Lo Green on 'Talking to Strangers'It's an age old argument that has bedeviled sociologists for years -- is sexiness learned through nature or nurture? Cee Lo Green, the self-described "Ladykiller," put in his two cents Wednesday on 'Talking to Strangers' (Wednesday, 11PM on FUSE). Green told Kelly Rowland about how he was raised to be sexy.

"My mama, she was a trip, she wanted me to be sexy," he said, drawing out the word for emphasis. "My mama got me some bikini drawers." Green said his mother bought him several pairs of bikini underwear at a women's "pleasure party." "She brought me back a g-string with the little elephant tusk in it, the see-through elephant tusk with the little shaky eyes."

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."

Lady Gaga Dons Blue Merkin at 'MuchMusic Video Awards,' List of Winners (VIDEO)

Lady GaGa, '2011 MuchMusic Video Awards'So ... there's that. Lady Gaga took another approach to visualizing the message of her hit single 'Born This Way' on 'The 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards' (Sun., 9PM ET on Fuse). This time around, she seemed to focus on the natural beauty of body hair.

Her female dancers appeared to have unshaven armpits, and Gaga herself took it a step further. Let's just say the carpet matched the drapes, and in this case the drapes were a bright blue.

We're not talking about a wardrobe malfunction either, as the blue hair adorning her crotch and armpits was clearly not real.

Fuse has three new shows

by Kristin Sample, posted Jul 9th 2008 7:26PM
Fuse logoFuse has green-lit production for three new shows. Redemption Song, Tour Me a New One, and Rock Bottom -- all working titles -- will air this fall.

Matt Faber, executive VP of Programming and Development explains the decision to move forward with these shows: "The addition of these shows furthers our commitment to new programming that has music at its pulse. With each new series, we're building on the depth and variety of music programming that viewers can find on Fuse." So Fuse is trying to pick up where MTV left off by centering their programming around music, its production, and its artists. But do these three shows do that?

Whitest Kids U Know move to IFC for season two

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 22nd 2007 7:02PM

whitest kids u knowWell, no wonder I missed this news: it was buried in some Variety article with "R. Kelly" in the title. You might as well slap a "poison" label on a jar of Skippy and expect me to open it. Seriously, people.

Anyway, yes, The Whitest Kids U Know will be heading to IFC for its second season after completing its first season on Fuse, IFC's sister channel. IFC has also acquired rights to the first season of the series. Fans of the series should be happy about this move for two reasons: IFC does not censor anything, and, it's commercial-free. The troupe is currently shooting the second season.

Fuse renews Whitest Kids U Know

by Adam Finley, posted May 11th 2007 5:22PM

whitest kids u knowFuse has given its musical sketch comedy series The Whitest Kids You Know a second season. The series, which originated as a series of Web videos back in 2000, first hit Fuse last March. Before coming to Fuse, the team of Trevor Moore, Sam Brown, Zach Cregger, Timmy Williams, and Darren Trumeter made a name for themselves around New York City's various comedy venues.

Variety does not specify when the second season will begin, although it does mention the possibility of a DVD release.

If you're like me and don't have Fuse on your cable lineup, you can watch some of the sketches on YouTube, which has a collection of some of their old Web stuff and possibly a few clips from the actual series. The Fuse site used to have clips, too, but those are gone. I watched a few of them not too long ago and found them amusing, but right now I have to say MTV's Human Giant is the better sketch comedy series.

The Whitest Kids U'Know musical sketch comedy coming to Fuse - TCA Report

by Kevin Kelly, posted Jan 12th 2007 5:52PM
Whitest Kids U Might Not Know, But Want ToThe Whitest Kids U'Know was presented to us with a roll of toilet paper, and an announcement proclaiming that it's "A comedy movement that is dropping on March 20th." So, when the intro to a show leads off with toilet humor, you know you're in for something really special. The teaser they showed involved an excited couple nervously talking about trying to get pregnant, and when the time comes to reveal the test, she can't read it and asks him to do it. He tells her, "That's my IPod shuffle. You peed on my iPod shuffle. You're such a f*cking bitch."

Harsh, but funny! Granted, I love sketch comedy ... probably more than a human being should, but with the gradual downslide of Saturday Night Live ('Dick in a Box' and 'Lazy Sunday' notwithstanding), this show is about the funniest thing I've seen sketch-wise in a long time. They've been seen all over CollegeHumor.com and YouTube, so check 'em out online.

Although this was announced as an upcoming show on the Sundance Channel back in 2005, did anything ever happen with it? This version of the show premieres on Fuse on March 20th at 11PM eastern.

Chainsaw Awards on Fuse

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 16th 2006 3:03PM

devil's rejectsThat's right, Fuse TV will be presenting the Chainsaw Awards on October 22 at 9:30 pm. Who will take home the trophy this year? Will it be the Partner K950 gas-powered chainsaw with decompression valve for easy pull starting? Or what about the eighteen-inch Homelite chainsaw with automatic chain brake, which has lost out for the past five years to the fourteen-inch Remington electric chainsaw? I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm excited to find out which of th--

Hang on, someone just tapped me on the shoulder and told me the Chainsaw Awards is actually a special from Fuse and Fangoria honoring horror movies. I guess that's cool, too. Categories include "Killer Movie," "Looks That Kill," and "Best Butcher." Sounds like a fun-filled night of blood and gore. I'm looking forward to it. The awards have been handed out since 1992, but this marks the first time they've been televised.

More work for Full House's Jodie Sweetin

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 13th 2006 6:57PM
jodie sweetinThings are really looking up for Jodie Sweetin, who played Stephanie on Full House so many years ago. Shortly after revealing that she was overcoming an addiction to methamphetamines, she was hired by Fuse music television to host a show about stripping. Fuse is keeping her around. She's set to start filming a series about malls for the music channel, called Get Malled, beginning on Monday in Philadelphia. The series also includes guest appearances by Justin Long ("I'm a Mac") and Jesse Metcalfe of Desperate Housewives. After the series, Sweetin says she has two movies lined up, although nothing is listed on her IMDB bio.

I'm not kidding. That's the title.

The show "features people of all ages taking off their clothes to their favorite music videos."

If you're keeping track, this is the 5th sign that the apocalypse is near.
