If there’s one problem with airing a reality show live, it’s the impossibility of patrolling wayward judges like CeeLo Green. This was a definite problem last night on The Voice, when editors weren’t quick enough to censor a shot of CeeLo catching a quick smoke break…when he was supposed to be critiquing Team Adam’s Grey!
CeeLo’s a bit of a media liability for NBC these days, what with his recent drug charges and his near prosecution for sexual assault. Now, the singer is taking his misdeeds to live television. Although his latest blooper on The Voice lacked the illicit substances responsible for his recent legal issues, it did involve one of CeeLo’s biggest vices. A brief shot caught CeeLo sneaking a puff and then letting the smoke out of his nose. And suffice to say, he wasn’t all too subtle about it. That makes us wonder whether the judge has remained an active smoker throughout the first portion of the season, with the editors simply making a point of censoring out his more obvious smoke breaks.
MTV acknlowedges that the culprit could have been an electronic cigarette, a popular device among those seeking to kick the habit. Fair point, but we maintain that it’s still just a tad bit unprofessional to puff away while you’re supposedly on the job. After all, this misstep occurred while the other judges were offering Grey (from Team Adam) constructive criticism. But in the brief smoking shot, CeeLo doesn’t look like he’s paying a whole lot of attention to the task at hand. We think Grey deserves better!
Did you catch CeeLo Green’s smoking flub on The Voice? Do you think it underscores a lack of respect from the often controversial judge? Sound off in the comments section below!
