For years, the Grammy Awards red carpet has served as a sort of stage for music industry luminaries to make a serious fashion statement. It seems that CeeLo Green has taken that practice a few steps further, unveiling a brand new identity. Meet Gnarly Davidson in the gallery up top.

A few weeks ago, the "Forget You" performer rolled out his new alter ego by giving XXL an exclusive photo of himself dressed in the golden costume. In the credits for the above photos, the Davidson's name appears next to CeeLo's. It seems that his new character has finally stepped out into the real world.

In the message to XXL, the "Cry Baby" singer wrote, "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.”

There is no word on when, exactly, we'll be hearing some music from CeeLo's new persona, but if the character's music matches his appearance, we can probably expect a pretty avant-garde sound. We'll have to wait and see. For now, let's turn our attention to the 2017 Grammys, where we'll be keeping track of hip-hop's big winners.
