For reasons passing understanding, Snoop Dogg appeared backstage at the CMT Awards on Monday.
Maybe his options for appearances are limited, seeing as most countries are currently trying to ban him.

Britain really, really doesn’t want Snoop Dogg in their country.
Britain’s Border Agency said Friday it would appeal a court’s decision to reverse an earlier ruling that had banned Snoop Dogg from entering the country after the rapper and his entourage started a fight at Heathrow Airport in April 2006.
He and five others were arrested at Heathrow on charges of violent disorder for instigating a brawl in a nearby duty-free shop after their 30-person posse was denied entry into British Airways’ first-class lounge because not everyone in the group was holding first-class tickets. Seven officers were injured in the melee.
I’m sure it all seemed very cute and unimportant at the time, but Britain didn’t feel that way. They banned Snoop from entering the country, and it meant he had to cancel a British Isles tour with Diddy, so now he’s looking to make it all better.
“Snoop and his team are mystified at the decision and are hoping that the British government will reconsider this decision,” says his rep. “He has asked how he can help rectify the situation and would happily talk to and give assurances to the officials.”
Snoop is also currently banned from Australia, where their prime minister said that “he doesn’t seem the sort of bloke we want in this country.”
Heh. It does kind of seem like Britain’s making an unfair example of him, but I can’t say I blame them. Like, it’s neither cute nor badass to start fist fights in international airports in a post-9/11 world. You have to be pretty fucking dumb to pull that crap. Save that shit for the playground, boys.
Like even this photo — which was taken at his album release party in late March — kind of pisses me off. I know you have a reputation to protect, Snoop, but you also have children of your own, and you’re actively glorifying gun violence by wearing that necklace. I know you rap about much worse shit, and you absolutely have that right, in much the same way you absolutely have the right to wear that necklace, but really? Do you have to? You’re 36 years old now. Doesn’t it ever just get exhausting to define yourself with violence?

As a part of the sentencing from his recent guilty plea to the charge of
being a freakin’ genius attempting to smuggle a collapsible baton onto an airplane, Snoop Dogg will be picking up trash around an Orange County park for 160 hours.
County officials are refusing to name the exact park, because, you know, it’s gonna take more than 160 hours for the media to figure out where Snoop Dogg’s picking up trash.
“He’s glad to make a contribution to Orange County,” said Snoop’s lawyer.

Everyone’s favorite law-abiding citizen plead guilty to the charges stemming from last year’s weapons arrest, when a certain someone thought to smuggle a collapsible baton onto an airplane in a laptop case.
Snoop’s actually going to less jail time than Nicole Richie for this one — he’ll do 160 hours of community service and three years probation for the felony, which will be reduced to a misdemeanor if he manages not to break the law for an entire year. And the sonofabitch didn’t even have to get pregnant!
“Snoop’s goal is to make music, not make court appearances,” said his lawyer.

Okay, if we’re gonna be all over LiLo’s ass for breaking out of rehab every now and then, let’s note that Brigitte Nielsen checked into rehab, like, five minutes before this photo was taken. She stepped out to attend the Comedy Central Roast of Flava Flav with her husband, Mattia Dessi, and I am saddened to admit that I know exactly who this guy is because I watched both The Surreal Life and Flavor of Love and honestly if anyone wants to be my boyfriend the position is open and really needs to be filled because this morning I watched the entire hour-long “Best Of” episode of Girls Next Door and honestly people I can’t go on like this indefinitely.
Flav showed up with his mom, and Snoop Dogg was there too. And Jimmy Kimmel hosted but he gets no pictures on this blog because of that fucking bullshit he pulled with Emily Gould.
