CEE Lo Green accepts he will never be skinny.

The 'Forget You' hitmaker - who is well known for his outrageous dress sense and plus-size frame - does not ever want to lose weight because he thinks of himself as a big man.

He said: "I'm not out of shape, this is just the shape I'm in.

"What you see, hear and experience is a person who is completely confident in their own skin. I wanted to incorporate a discipline that I'd never tried before but not to lose weight. I'm not going to be a small person. I'm big boned. This weight, I can facilitate."

Discussing his upbringing, the 36-year-old singer also revealed he thinks of himself as a survivor with a "thick skin".

He said: "Survival is my skill. I'm a soldier, a lover and a fighter. My skin is a little thicker because of where I've come from. I could have gone comfortably numb a long time ago, but I was saved because of my association with music.

"Music truly did calm a very savage beast."
