Cee Lo Green has described his delight at seeing Gwyneth Paltrow perform his song on Glee.

The actress gave a rendition of the singer-rapper-producer's track Forget You on the hit US show, following in the footsteps of Star Trek's William Shatner, who parodied the song.

The rapper said: "It's awesome man. What do you think? From Gwyneth Paltrow to William Shatner to the numerous many versions and covers and parodies on the Internet, on YouTube, it's like, 'Wow.' "

He added: "It's phenomenal, it's humbling and it's empowering all at the same time. It's awesome in the literal sense of the word and I'm just very fortunate, very lucky, very blessed. It's all that anyone could ask for. It's more than enough incentive to keep going."

The star, who hosts Lay It Down on US cable network Fuse TV, said he did not watch his own TV show.

He said: "I don't watch a lot of TV period. Not even my own show."

Asked about what other job he would have considered if he had not gone into music, the Grammy-winning musician said: "I had an interest in graphic art (and) in illustration. So I would probably try my hand at that. Photography, architecture or interior design or something that has to do with style."
