WORLD STARS Snoop Dogg receives star on Hollywood Walk Of Fame, thanks himself in acceptance speech.
American rapper Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr – aka Snoop Doggy Dog got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday and hilariously thanked himself for a good journey to celebrity status.
The 47-year-old Snoop, who also can be called a comedian, a weed connoisseur, a game show host and cookbook author, expressed gratitude to others, including Dr. Dre and Quincy Jones, in his acceptance speech for helping to guide him through his career and said, in turn, he now hoped to now help other young hip-hop stars to “cut through the mess early”.
But the West Coast rapper’s hilarious and heartfelt shoutout to himself was just the right amount of ego and humour to address a show-business milestone. And it was blunt.
“Last but not least, I want to thank me for believing in me,” he said in the clip below. “I want to thank me for doing all this hard work. I want to thank me for having no days off. I want to thank me for never quitting. I want to thank me for always being a giver and trying to give more than I receive.
“I want to thank me for trying to do more right than wrong,” he continued. “I want to thank me for just being me at all times. Snoop Dogg, you a bad motherfucker.”
Snoop Dogg’s star is the 2,651st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as rappers Dr Dre, Pharrell Williams, Warren G and TV show host Jimmy Kimmel was present to support him.
