This much is clear: If you motherf*%kaz want Snoop Dogg to play at an event, then motherf*%kaz best be prepared to pay up.
And not only does one have to cough up the appearance fee (a cool $150,000), one has to accommodate the Doggfather’s, um, unusual tastes… and his enormous entourage.
Snoop, who was recently given a suspended sentence for the latest in a long line of drug and gun arrests, apparently made quite a scene this week.
Organizers of Tuesday’s PCD show at Cipriani Wall Street to benefit UNICEF, which also featured the rapper, had to fly in more than 10 members of his posse. First class.
Then, at the last minute, Snoop Dogg almost didn’t go on because, “he insisted on having an Xbox in his dressing room,” an insider said.
“We finally found someone who lent us their kids’ Xbox, and had to put Snoop somewhere on the third floor because he was smoking so much weed.”
Snoop and his pals were having such a good time, in fact, that they were an hour late making it to the stage, forcing the Pussycat Dolls – who were paid $300,000 to perform, interestingly – to actually talk.
That’s never a good thing.
While introducing themselves, one of the blonde dolls thanked “Unicel” instead of “UNICEF.” Come on. We know these Jessica Simpson-esque gals aren’t paid for their brains, but they could do a little brushing up.
A rep for Snoop Dogg – who is open and candid about his love for the chronic, and his distaste for Bill O’Reilly and Don Imus – didn’t return calls.
