Cee Lo Opts Out of Rihanna Tour

Cee Lo Green is saying "Forget it" instead of "Forget You" when it comes to Rihanna's "Loud" tour. The singer, also a coach on The Voice, has opted out of the tour. He cited commitments with The Voice as one of the reasons he has chosen to leave the tour, even though the NBC reality singing competition series ends this Wednesday.
Before you go all "Hmmm" about Cee Lo's tour exit, his representative issued the following statement: "He always puts 100 percent into his work and with the requirements and time commitment to The Voice, on top of heading back into the recording studio and an upcoming book, he feels that he wouldn't give his fans the show that they deserve." At least he is looking out for his fans. We wonder if RiRi is pissed about him ditching her tour; he appeared on about 17 dates.
Cee Lo is also hosting a half-hour FUSE talk show, Talking to Strangers, on Wednesday nights. Keri Hilson is this week's guest.
We get it – Cee Lo is too overworked to tour.
What do you think of Cee Lo Green's reasons for quitting the Rihanna tour? Is it bad form? Should he have honored that commitment, too?
