CeeLo Green regrets her criminal past: ‘Young and stupid’

“I had no friends and I was not in school. I stole sneakers and jackets from people my mother didn’t know. I would go to school every day, but then I would take the subway and go to the places I went. I was flying” said CeeLo.

At the age of 18, the singer began his musical career, which ultimately brought him great success. Still, CeeLo remembered her past when a man approached her about six years ago and told her she had been robbed. “I stole his Air Jordan from a station in Atlanta. He told me that and I remembered it. I told him I was very sorry that I was young and stupid then. He told me that because my music sees this period as an intervention for me, it meant a lot to me.

CeeLo sees music as his salvation. “I don’t know what my life would be like without music, or even if I were alive. I did stupid things because I didn’t feel accepted and wanted to present myself differently. Let it be. Obviously I’m not a victim because I’m not. Life is a training camp and you have to go through some basic training to take it to the next level.
