Cee Lo Green’s pet bird, Lady, steals the show on NBC’s “The Voice”
Green is the oddest of the bunch. Last season, he used a fluffy white Persian cat as a prop, a la Dr. Evil. This season, he has a pink cockatoo perched on his shoulder during interviews. The cat, Purrfect, did make a cameo appearance on the show recently though.
People magazine says Green’s new sidekick is a Moluccan cockatoo named Lady.
Nov. 3, 2012, update: Lady flew the coop midseason and was replaced by Purrfect. (Cee Lo explains Lady’s departure in this YouTube video, starting at the 0:59 mark. “Lady’s leaving for the winter,” he said. “Fair weather friend.”)
Lady couldn’t compete with Purrfect’s popularity. Lady has 8,881 followers on Twitter as of Dec. 15, 2012. Purrfect The Cat has 63,172.
