Snoop Dogged By Oprah Snub

Now he’s a feminist.


Snoop Dogg has beef with Oprah Winfrey. “I don’t like her no more,” he said at the Hip-Hop Summit Action gala at Capitale on February 25, where he accepted an award. Last year, the talk-show queen did an episode on misogyny in hip-hop, and Snoop was held up as a prime offender—without being invited on the show to defend himself. “I really was offended, because I kind of like her,” he said. “Liked her. I’m very articulate, very intellectual. She didn’t even get a chance to even know me.” She might have learned that the rap star is cleaning up his act: His new album, he told reporters, “is for the women.” He said he wanted to “give the ladies something, because I’ve been so mean and so rude.” But Snoop doesn’t really mind being criticized. “My mama always told me, ‘Any time they’re saying something bad about you, you’re doing the right thing, baby,’ ” he said. “If they talked about Jesus, it’s all right for them to talk about Snoop Dogg.”
