Yesterday we (and the rest of the internet) brought you a video of a cell phone exploding against CeeLo Green’s face. As many people guessed on Twitter, the video was fake.

CeeLo took to Facebook Live to quell any rumors about his face, a Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and this infamous video. The video was a promotion for his upcoming mixtape Gnarly Davidson. This marketing stunt, while pretty stupid, appears to have worked- because now we’re talking about a new CeeLo project in 2016. CeeLo’s comments are below.

“I just want to let everybody know that I am alive, that I’m well, and I’m OK. Truthfully, I’m really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today. What you saw today was a clip from a smaller video that we were shooting for a new project I’m doing called Gnarly Davidson. It’s supposed to set up […] and introduce the new character identity. […] I want to thank everybody for their love and support and concern.”
