Cee Lo Green’s Backstage Rider Is a Buffet That Will Destroy His Diet

Cee Lo Green made a New Year’s pledge to adopt a healthier lifestyle with the help of his partnership with eDiets. Well, judging by his backstage rider (the big reveal by, he’s not going to make good on his promise.

In the document, Green’s backstage food demands resemble a buffet menu at the Golden Corral. Among his requirements include rotating dinners of fish, rib-eye steaks and baked tuna depending on the day of the week. The ‘Voice‘ judge also requests “baked lobster and macaroni cheese” and “24 fried jumbo shrimps” and “24 sautéed jumbo shrimps” as well.

Green’s libations of choice are bottles of Ciroc vodka, Patron, Hennessy and cases of sodas, Corona and Grolsch beer. Oh, and for dessert, the crooner wants sweet potato pie and peach cobbler. Mmm, mmm good!

Now, we don’t think all of this food is for Green, himself, however, none of it is particularly healthy. The quantities of liquor alone will pack on the pounds — and let’s not get into the 48 different pieces of cooked shrimp.

If Green plans to stick to his diet he’s not going to be successful with this high-caloric rider. In comparison, Nicki Minaj‘s tour rider is much healthier than Green’s, although there are a few guilty pleasures on it (12-piece buckets of spicy fried chicken — we see you Queen Barbz!).

In the end, we still wish Green the best of luck on his weight-loss journey with eDiets. We can’t wait to see the new and improved (and hopefully svelter) crooner in 2013.
