In what might have been considered an unlikely collaboration once upon a time, Miley Cyrus and Snoop Lion have made sweet music together.
Thanks to Snoop’s “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,” which hit the Web this week, we got a taste of the “really different sound” that Cyrus teased back in November.
The artist we once knew solely as Snoop Dogg announced Monday that he's ready to leave his Doggy ways behind him as he focuses on creating reggae music under the name Snoop Lion.
"Rap is not a challenge to me," Snoop said Monday night at a press event in New York City, according to the Huffington Post.
"The Price Is Right" launched Celebrity Week on Monday with none other than Snoop Dogg (who also happens to be a longtime fan of the show).
Every day this week, different celebs will appear on "Price is Right" to play along with the contestants to rack up a donation for a charity of the star's choosing. (Tuesday's guest was Jenny McCarthy.)
On Monday, Snoop was playing for his youth football league, which mentors inner-city kids between the ages of 5 and 13 while giving them the opportunity to play the sport, and he ended up bringing in $72,585. As you can see in the clip below, this is clearly a man who knows how to play the game:
Snoop Dogg is keeping the "actor" part of his multi-hyphenate career alive with another TV project. According to Deadline, Snoop has sold a family comedy pitch to NBC.
The half-hour sitcom is about a father (Snoop, naturally) parenting his wayward brood. The rapper would also produce the multi-cam comedy.
In 2002, Snoop starred in MTV sketch comedy show “Doggy Fizzle Televizzle,” and he put his own family on camera with reality series “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood,” which aired on E! from 2007-2009.

After being criticized for attacking rap and hip-hop in her memoir, “All That Is Bitter and Sweet,” Ashley Judd is extending an olive branch along with a few points of clarification.
The backlash began after an excerpt from her book depicted the actress lobbing harsh words at the rap and hip-hop genres as well as artists Snoop Dogg and P. Diddy. While speaking about an AIDS awareness program she works with, Judd writes, "Along with other performers, YouthAIDS was supported by rap and hip-hop artists like Snoop Dogg and P. Diddy to spread the message...um, who? Those names were a red flag.”
Judd continued, “As far as I'm concerned, most rap and hip-hop music - with its rape culture and insanely abusive lyrics and depictions of girls and women as 'ho's' - is the contemporary soundtrack of misogyny.”
"Jersey Shore" star Mike Sorrentino got himself into a real Situation while filming Comedy Central's Roast of Donald Trump on Wednesday. The reality star told jokes that were so offensive that the crowd nearly booed him off stage, reports Us Weekly.
Sorrentino began by taking shots at his fellow presenters, calling Larry King old, Lisa Lampanelli fat and Marlee Matlin ugly. But that was nothing compared to what he had in store for Snoop Dogg.
In a racially insensitive bit, Sorrentino quipped that the rapper had much in common with Trump, since Trump owned a lot of property and Snoop's ancestors had once been property.
