The following CNN entertainment and music news video is a Jeanne Moos segment. It was uploaded to the CNN website on July 31, 2012.
This report talks about singer and entertainer Snoop Dogg changing his name to Snoop Lion. So he is now a big cat instead of a dog. Snoop Dogg makes sense as a name because Snoopy is a famous dog. But what the heck is a Snoop Lion? Is it a lion that snoops around? LOL.
Most of the people interviewed for this clip are just wondering why he would change the name when he already has a name that works.
Some goofball in Jamaica apparently told him he is a lion, not a dog. So that is his reason for changing his name to a Snoop Lion? It reminds me of a school I used to teach at in Korea. It had two owners, and they were looking to change location cause business wasn’t that good. One of the freaky owners chose her preferred location after going to a psychic. The other owner told her it wasn’t even an appropriate location for a school.
The cherry on top is Snoop Lion is now a Reggae artist, not a rapper or Hip Hop guy. LOL. I heard they got some funny marijuana there in Jamaica. It seems like he overdosed on it.
