In case you didn’t know what’s happened in Snoop Dogg’s world this past week, you probably should. Because it’s doggone weird yet exactly what we’d expect from the Snoop Lion himself.
A barrier collapsed at his New Jersey show.
Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa teamed up to go on The High Road Tour across North America. When performing at Camden, New Jersey’s BB&T Pavilion last Friday, the railing broke loose from the pressure of fans trying to get closer. Forty-two people were injured after falling 10 feet onto concrete. Security immediately escorted both performers off stage and the rest of the concert was cancelled.
Then, over 50 people were kicked out of his concert in New York.
During Wiz and Snoop’s show at Nikon Jones Beach Amphitheater in New York on Tuesday, law enforcement removed more than 50 people for alcohol poisoning and rushed 13 to the hospital. Many of these concertgoers were underage – one so drunk that he broke his nose from falling to the ground. Four were arrested for marijuana possession (which seems like a low number considering the performers) and teenagers were reportedly drinking vodka out of water bottles in bathrooms.
His son left the UCLA Football Program… again.On Monday, UCLA’s head coach Jim Mora announced that Snoop’s son, Cordell Broadus, left the UCLA football program to “pursue” other areas in his life. Broadus, a highly desired four-star recruit, got a second chance to be part of the team this year. Snoop told TMZ he “ain’t trippin'” over the news and that he plans to talk to his son ASAP.
When Broadus quit last year, he posted on Instagram: “I played football for my father because I thought that was the only way he would love me & be apart of my life. It took me 12 years to realize he loves Cordell Broadus the person not Cordell Broadus the football player. The best day of my life was when I heard those exact words.”
Maybe we can look forward to the next Snoop Puppy?
Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart will have their own cooking show.
Yes, you read that right. Snoop had a couple appearances on Stewart’s daytime cooking show Martha, where they made mashed potatoes one year and brownies the next. “I used to work at McDonalds, I know how to do this,” Snoop said during a segment of Martha. VH1 just confirmed the upcoming series with a working title of Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party, which is said to air in the fall. Stewart and Snoop will invite their fellow celebrity friends over for “a half-baked evening of cocktails, cooking, conversation, and fun where nothing is off limits.”
We can only assume what “half-baked” means…
