Cee Lo Green writing his memoirs

Cee Lo Green is writing his autobiography.

Billboard reports Grand Central Books announced it had signed the multi-platinum star to write a book about his life to be published in 2013.

In a statement Green said, "FORGET YOU? After reading my book, there will be no doubt that I am meant to be. You will enter into the supernatural, the surreal, and extraordinary. As Cee Lo Green, a.k.a. 'everybody's brother,' I will make you a believer. I talk about art imitating life; YOU discover CRAZY."

David Wild, the Rolling Stone contributing editor and television writer, will co-author the book. Singing partner Big Gipp will also contribute "insights" about Green.

"He dresses in sequined capes, performs with the Muppets and Madonna, and does 360° flips with a grand piano at his fingertips. Imagine all that outrageously unique and creative talent channeled into a book," raved Beth de Guzman, Vice-President and Editor-in-Chief of Paperbacks at Grand Central Publishing who acquired the book.

Green is currently in his second season on the NBC's "The Voice." As a musician, he is part of Gnarls Barkley and the Goodie Mob. He has won five Grammy awards, including for Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best R&B Song in 2012.

Cee Lo recently joined Madonna for her Super Bowl Halftime show.
