A room that performers wait in before they go on stage.

It is usually a small room that has a couch and is close to the stage. It is very rarely painted green!

I was a stage hand for 6 years and they told me the term "green room" came form the days of yore: The Shakespearian actors waited in a room full of green plants before they went on stage--thus the term " green room."

It also may be from the new or "green" performers waiting there before going on stage.
I was in the green room making out with Little Bo Peep!!

Did you see all the smoke coming from the green room OMG!!!

She won't come out of the green room: she's having a bitch-fit!

A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.

This is where artists hangout before and after a show or interview. Usually much marijuana smoking and slapping of hoes asses takes place.

Although other definitions refer solely to the physical room, a "green room" may refer to a "saying-goodbye" event popular in the theater programs of certain high schools. During a "green room," the members of the cast and crew who are graduating seniors are spoken about (often individually) by underclassmen, in front of everyone else. These speeches often incorporate how missed the senior will be, what an impact the senior had, and an important story about the senior. It is often a heavily emotionally-charged event, with an understandablly-large amount of tearing up, straight bawling, and laughter.
Nick: Jeremy sounded so heartfelt when he spoke at Anthony's green room after the show last Spring.

Tom: It was really good. Remember John's green room last year? That was pretty hilarious: me, you, and Joe remembered all the great times we shared with John.
