With a career that will span a fourth decade come next year, there probably aren’t too many things that Snoop Dogg hasn’t tried in entertainment. The multi-hyphenate stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday (May 24) to chop it up with Ellen about a few things going on in his life such as working with Martha Stewart on Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, his new cookbook, and receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame back in November.
When asked if he could’ve ever imagined his career going on for this long and expanding into so many different walks of life, Snoop replied, “Not really, but I’ve always been the class clown ever since I was a kid.” He continued, “So I was able to try different things and be different and unafraid to go out on a limb and put everything out there and let people know I don’t care about what you feel, I care about what I feel. Sometimes me feeling good is me expressing myself in different ways and avenues.”
The Long Beach native also explained how he met Martha Stewart. “We had a relationship based off me coming on her show and I was cooking some brownies around Christmas. That spun to us doing [Roast of] Justin Bieber. When we did his roast, she happened to sit right next to me and she had a second-hand smoke. From that contact, we started connecting,” he said.
Snoop said he even sleeps over when they’re working together on the East Coast. “When I go that way, I like to stay at her house,” he said. “Her house is so big, her horse’s house is bigger than my house.”
For a separate segment, the Dogg showcased his quarterbacking ability by hitting moving targets with footballs in a game that Ellen dubbed Snoop Ball, which came as part of her show’s Million Dollar May giveaway. Snoop set a high score and earned his Snoop Youth Football League a $25,000 check.
