Yes, Seth Rogen, HBO should definitely air your recaps before every single episode. Rita Ora also has a thing for watermelon. The British singer surprised BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend to cover Beyonce's "Drunk in Love" and mix things up a little...Read Full Story
(Austin PD | Getty Images)At one point, I had this hilariously ambitious plan to recap all of the most impressive performances at Austin's South by Southwest music festival as they happened. Then the realities of SXSW set in: Delayed set times, extremely late nights, and a special brand of mass exhaustion that seems to afflict everyone with ears.
This year's festival was particularly intense. The worst possible scenario came true when a drunk driver plowed into a festival crowd in the early...Read Full Story
(Getty)Snoop Doog turned 42 over the weekend — yeah, 42, way to make everyone else feel old, Snoop — and he celebrated with a massive party sponsored by GPen and Colt .45 no less. But a birthday party wouldn't be a birthday party with some cake, and boy did Snoop have one hell of an appropriate cake to ring in number 4-2. Cake on the inside, blunt on the outside:What else do you get a man who smokes 75 times a day?Read Full Story
(YouTube)Cheers to Hot Pockets for understanding how the Internet works. Rather than promote their delicious stoner snacks in a traditional 30-second spot on Adult Swim, they gave the ol' viral thing an honest try. And their recipe for virality is almost as good as their recipe for a Philly cheese-steak Croissant Pocket.Simply take Snoop Dogg rapping over Biz Markie's "Just a Friend." Add one of the hottest women in the world in the form of Kate Upton. Bring in some animation like sheep...Read Full Story
(Photo: YouTube)On paper, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more disparate pair of people than Snoop Dogg and Larry King, but that's why life isn't lived on paper. In reality, these guys have a genuine affinity for each other. It's infectious. Just try not to be charmed by Larry's recent sit-down with Snoop on his YouTube show. These two were made to work together. The entire 12-minute segment is pure magic, but if you need more convincing, know this:
Larry utters the phrase "I'm gettin...Read Full Story

Miley Cyrus paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday, and naturally, she did so without pants. The lack of coverage didn't slip by Jimmy, who fortunately was very gracious about having so much pop star rear end on his beloved couch. Kimmel also grilled Cyrus on her "We Can't Stop" video, asking her to weigh in on certain shots — like that moment she made out with a Barbie in a pool. But Miley has explanations for everything.In the second part of the interview, posted below, Miley talks...Read Full Story
There's something wildly infectious about Robyn and Snoop Dogg's "U Should Know Better," an 80s-inspired track off the Swedish singer's 2010 album Body Talk. In the video, two young, gender-flipped lookalikes of the singer pal around town mean mugging. Snoop Doog is a braided gal with big hoops, while Robyn is a short, mushroom cut boy who shows off some very serious moves. "In a parallel universe Snoop and Robyn ride or die in a Volvo," the singer posted on Twitter. But there's more to this...Read Full Story
(Getty Images)ThoThough he's made absolutely no attempt to keep his act family-friendly, Snoop Dogg lends his buttery voice to the upcoming DreamWorks animated comedy Turbo. The former pimp plays "a slick-talking, slow-walking son of a snail" (his words), and has, of course, contributed a special song to the film's soundtrack: "Let the Bass Go."The song, which plays over the end credits, sounds like it was lifted straight out of the late '80s. "It's something upbeat that everyone in the house...Read Full Story
