Rap veteran Snoop Dogg may be known for laying down hot tracks, but the marijuana-loving artist reportedly supplied actress Cameron Diaz with pot during their high school days.
According to Diaz, Snoop was her #1 hook-up back in the day.
While making the promotional rounds on "Lopez Tonight" yesterday, Cameron Diaz revealed that she not only went to school with Snoop Dogg, but that the rap kingpin may have been a budding entrepreneur even way back then. "We went to high school together, he was a year older than me," she recollected. "I remember him. He was very tall and skinny, wore lots of ponytails in his head, and I'm pretty sure I bought weed from him. "Yeah. I had to have," she said. (E! Online)
Diaz also said she fought many battles during high school.
"So you were green even when you were in high school," host George Lopez replied, joking about the "Green Hornet" star's environmentally friendly lifestyle. "Absolutely," Diaz, 38, said. "You asked me when I got into the whole green thing..." Diaz, who is currently dating Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, also admitted that her Long Beach, Calif., school "was pretty rough," with frequent fights between students. "I used to get into fights with boys more than girls," the actress said. "For some reason, guys liked to fight me. I don't know why." Diaz recalled one specific altercation where her ponytail was yanked by another girl. "I had to shut her down," she said. (NY Daily News)
After graduation, Snoop had difficulty making the transition from drug dealer to rap star.
Nicknamed Snoop by his mother because of his appearance, Calvin Broadus (born October 20, 1972) was raised in Long Beach, CA, where he frequently ran into trouble with the law. Not long after his high-school graduation, he was arrested for possession of cocaine, beginning a period of three years where he was often imprisoned. He found escape from a life of crime through music. (All Music)
Snoop is currenty working on a new album set to drop later this year.
Snoop Dogg has called off plans to release the sequel to his classic debut Doggystyle, instead opting for the title Doggumentary Music for his 11th studio album, set for release in March 2011 via Priority Records/EMI. "I have been in the game for so long and still have the same passion I did when I first started. I want my fans to ride with me on this one and know that I am so focused on bringing good music to them," explains the veteran MC. "It's called Doggumentary Music because this is my life and I want to share my music, and my process of making it, with the fans." (Rap-Up)
