Snoop Dogg Shooting for "Biggest Diva at Sundance" Award

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Secret sources say that Snoop Dogg “insisted” on receiving a stockpile of watermelon-flavored gum as part of his rider request—requiring staffers to embark on a frantic search for the stuff. Why didn’t he just bring his own?

  • Apparently, watermelon-flavored gum is about as hard to find in Park City as marijuana-flavored gum. But through the grace of God, the staffers did locate a fruit gum stand that sold the precious substance, and all was well in the blessed festival city. Snoop performed his song “Nuthin’ But a G(um) Thang” for the masses at Harry O’s, and made jokes about being high, and presumably blew some bubbles. But one question remains: who will out-diva the Dogg now? [NY Post]
