The Voice: Cee Lo Ditches Purrfect The Cat For Feathered Friend

Cee Lo Green and Miss Ladybird on 'The Voice' -- NBC

With a new season comes a new animal sidekick for "The Voice" coach Cee Lo Green.

Gone are the days of Purrfect, the white cat with the mysterious glint in her eye who sat in "Papa" Cee Lo's lap during the NBC reality competition. Now, the "Forget You" singer has moved on to a feathered friend - Lady, a pink Moluccan cockatoo.

"Lady's name says it all," the singer told People. "She's my little lady with a big opinion. Sometimes whispers inappropriateness in my ear, but always ladylike."

And, fear not, Twitter fans - like Purrfect, Lady will also Tweet (or squawk?) using the Twitter handle, @CeeLosLady. In fact, the striking bird already has nearly 300 followers even though she's yet to make her TV debut.

In a video released by NBC, Cee Lo can be seen exiting a Rolls Royce holding Lady (or Miss Ladybird) who he said he found while "vacationing on Fantasy Island."

"I saw this bird fly by and it landed on my windowsill and I just, I fell in love," he said. "Ladykiller!"

Meanwhile, Cee Lo left Purrfect in the backseat of the Rolls, as the pampered pet was headed to a "Victoria's Secret shoot," according to the video.

Lady will make her big debut (perched atop Cee Lo's shoulder, of course) when "The Voice" returns to NBC for Season 3 on Monday, September 10 at 8 PM.
