Snoop Dogg sat down with Ellen to discuss his relationship with Martha Stewart, his surprisingly weed-free cookbook, and his ventures onto the big and small screens.
Snoop says he met Martha on set of Justin Beiber’s roast. The rapper says he and the homemaker extraordinaire were sitting next to each other, she got a contact high and the rest is history! “I love me some Martha Stewart. She is just a joy to be around,” he starts. “I mean you wouldn’t think of that when you think of Snoop Dogg off the top but as Snoop Dogg grows into who he becomes it’s just the perfect match. It’s holy matrimony and holy macri-mony at the same time.”
Besides being beloved and having a ton of friends and fans in Hollywood, another thing Snoop has is career longevity; and that’s something no one can argue. When Ellen asks what his secret is he responds, “I was able to be different and not be afraid to, you know, go out on a limb and put my career, put my life, just put everything out there and let people know that I don’t care about what you feel. I care about what I feel and sometimes me feeling good is me expressing myself in different ways and different avenues.” As of lately he’s filmed a movie and had a guest spot on Law & Order.
He went on to talk about his viral speech he gave when he was presented with his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last November. For Snoop, thanking himself just made sense. Funny enough he explains, “The speech was, it was spur of the moment,” he confesses. He then went on to say, “…I wanted to give myself some credit because, a lot of times, we fail to give ourselves a pat on the back and I wanted to take that moment to thank myself for doing all the work I did to get to that point.” If that’s not a MOOD I don’t know what is!
