Anyone watching tonight’s Grammy Awards may have noticed that Cee Lo Green has transformed into what is either a Dark Souls enemy or an anthropomorphized Ferrero Rocher, but rather than simply the unveiling of a new (and weirdly badass) fashion aesthetic, Green is actually showcasing his new persona: a character known as Gnarly Davidson. Green actually revealed the new persona to XXL last week, releasing a short statement that doesn’t actually explain anything:

Look at me… LOOK AT ME! YOU DID THIS TO ME CEELO GREEN, YOU FUCKING IDIOT. BUT I LIKE IT, I’m actually…BETTER! Than you… than everyone! A karmikaze upon you! Vengeance is mine sayeth GNARLY DAVIDSON. P.S. TECHNOLOJESUS saves.

If the gold doesn’t do it for you, Green—or, rather, Gnarly Davidson—showed up to the pre-Grammy party on Saturday in this black variant:

The black version looks a lot more intimidating than the gold, and the lights make it look like he could be the villain in a Daft Punk movie about a war over funky beats, so maybe he’ll just keep showing up to events in different colors that we can keep making jokes about.
