What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that CeeLo Green's The Good Life is a reality series featuring the singer and the members of his band, Goodie Mob. CeeLo fans most likely will be drawn to it, but it's full of enough sexist behavior and strong language (curses such as "s--t" and the "N" word are audible) that it's an iffy choice for younger teens.
What's the story?
CEELO GREEN'S THE GOOD LIFE is a reality show featuring singer and The Voice coach CeeLo Green and the antics of his Southern hip-hop group, Goodie Mob. The Atlanta-born performer and his childhood friends, Cameron "Big Gipp," Willie Edward Knighton Jr. (aka Khujo Gunclub Goodie), and Robert "T-Mo" Barnett are reunited, recording, and performing together. Also joining them is CeeLo's protege, "V." In between recording music and performing at a variety of venues, the gang enjoys their fair share of crazy antics and good times.
Is it any good?
From starting a chauffeur service featuring scantily clad female drivers to preparing to throw the first pitch at a Dodger's game, CeeLo and his friends enjoy some Entourage-like moments while they work on their music. Appearances by musicians such as Eric Bénet add to the atmosphere.
Much of the show is about CeeLo celebrating his wealthy lifestyle and enjoying the fact that he can do whatever he wants as a result. His fans will be drawn to it, and reality enthusiasts may find the humorous (though clearly staged) moments entertaining. But, outside of this, there's just not a whole lot here.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the reasons performers appear on reality shows. Is it for promotional purposes? To make money? Or is there something else that drives them to do it?
