Cee Lo asks forgiveness from Chattanooga in video

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Musical performer Cee Lo Green is making nice with Chattanooga after his recent Riverbend appearance that drew criticism.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported the singer and rapper says on a video posted on TMZ.com, "Forgive me, Chattanooga."

Riverbend officials have apparently cooled off and made plain they never said Cee Lo was banned from future events, but said they thought they had an agreement to keep the show clean.

Officials said they were disappointed that the artist drank onstage, cursed during his performance and mooned the audience.

In his video, Cee Lo also apologized for the late start to his show, which festival officials said was due to weather delaying his flight.

Said Cee Lo, "I meant no harm."
