* MisaimedFandom: A rare positive example. According to a JET magazine interview, Cee Lo said the main reason he wrote "Fuck You" was to get forced out of his contract with Atlantic Records, since he felt that the company constrained his sense of creativity. Ironically enough, despite the song primarily designed as a TakeThat to Atlantic, the company ''loved'' the single and enthusiastically advertised the song afterward, along with the album ''The Lady Killer''. That's not to say Cee Lo wasn't grateful for the odd change of heart.

* FanonDiscontinuity: As far as fans are concerned, there is ''no'' version of "Fuck You" called "Forget You."


Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: Before "Fuck You" got {{Bowdlerized}} as "Forget You," there was a different censored version called "F U." It didn't take as well, but has such a hilariously juvenile charm to it that it's difficult to see why.

* InternetBacklash: Of all the things Cee Lo could have said to spark off this reaction, it was changing a couple of lyrics from the Music/JohnLennon song "Imagine" when singing the song during 2012 New Year's Day. Although not all John Lennon fans were upset at Cee Lo, the rest of them gave him the kind of disapproval usually reserved for Music/JustinBieber. Ouch.
