One on One With Grammy Award Nominee Ari Levine

The Grammy's are right around the corner and musicians aren't the only ones nervous about the big awards show--producers are anxiously waiting for the big night as well.

Producer Ari Levine, who has worked with Cee-Lo, Bruno Mars and Gwyneth Paltrow, among others, is talking to Hollyscoop about his big name collaborations.

When we told Ari we were huge fans of his work at The Envelope Roundtable Showcasing Grammy Nominated Music Producers Alex Da Kid, Ari Levine and RedOne, he smiled and replied, "We are big fans of Hollyscoop!"

We sat down for an EXCLUSIVE Q&A with Ari and here's what he had to say:

Hollyscoop: We knew you'd be a huge star, but did u expect all of this to happen?
Ari Levine: "No, definitely not."

HS: Are you guys working on anything with Cee-Lo now?
AL: "Cee-Lo's on the road now, on tour in Germany, so I'm just hanging out and relaxing."

HS: How is Gwyneth Paltrow as a singer?
AL: "She's great! She's awesome. She's pretty, like naturally pretty."

HS: Any upcoming projects?
AL: "Yeah, there is a lot of stuff in the works. I've been working with John West, he's a new singer signed to Mercury records."

HS: Cee-Lo's "Forget You" was nominated for song of the year at the Grammy's. How do you feel about it?
AL: "It's awesome because there are curse words of course..."

HS: Were you excited to see Gwyneth Paltrow perform it on Glee?
AL: "Ya. It was really cool!"
