Snoop Dogg Set To Open British Pub In L.A. What? Why?

Because His Favourite TV Programme Is British Soap Coronation Street
Published by The Duchesne

If reports are to be believed, L.A will soon have its very own 'Rovers Return'.

Rovers Return is the name of the famous pub in Coronation Street, a leading night time television soap made in England.

Snoop is said to be desperately trying to appear on the show and bring some British flavour to the USA.

He was quoted in the British newspaper The Mirror as follows:

"Coronation Street is where it's at. I've sent messages to the cast, they know I'm a fan.  I have watched Coronation Street for years and I am in talks to do a cameo on the show; but until then a little bit of Corrie (Coronation Street) can come to me.
People are mad for themed pubs over here so I am doing this properly. Nothing will stop me serving Betty's ( (Betty is a character in the soap) hotpot in my pub man. If it didn't serve hot pot, it wouldn't be a proper Rover's Return."

Can you see it? Snoop running a pub?

Insert break-



....smoking isn't allowed in pubs (in England or L.A), and that gangster stare will definitely send potential customers right back out the door. I know if I walked in and got that look, I'd head right back out.
Here's a tip Snoop, smiles and food.

This is more like it. Perfect British pub atmosphere.

Anyhow, he'll only be financing the project right? With the occasional popping in. It's not like he'll be fronting the thing, or serving there. 
On second thought, he just might. Great PR concept. I can see the barrage of people and drinks flying off the shelves, literally. They'd run out! Literally.

What? I'm not saying there'd be fights, shootings and all that. No way. Black people can behave, especially after a few drinks. 
And who says the patrons will only be Black?  All races drink. When I said drinks flying off the shelves, I don't mean people using them as weapons. Neither when I say they'd run out, do I mean people running out the door to escape the violence.
Is that what you thought?
Shame on you. Whatever would make you think that? My using 'literally' twice in close succession?
Oh, that's just me exerting style!

I think it's a great idea. Go Snoop!  One can never have enough 'enterprises'.

  1. Girl, you are silly!
    This is news to me. The thought of hearing Snoop saying, "Shhhhh! My story is on." is almost inconprehensible to me. Sometimes celebrities throw me for a loop.

  2. Lol ...Thanks Asha. You'd be surprised girl. Watch him on Snoop Dogg Father Hood. He never ceases to amaze me.

  3. yeah i read that one...and couldnt come up with a snappy

  4. Oliver...You continue to surprise me. Of all the articles, thought you'd have something on this one. The whole British connection? You watch Corrie too right? lmaooo

  5. If one day you feel like crying,
    Call me.
    I don’t promise that I will make you laugh,
    But I can cry with you.

    If one day you want to run away,
    Don’t be afraid to call me.
    I don’t promise to ask you to stop,
    But I can run with you.

    If one day you don’t want to listen to anyone,
    Call me.
    I promise to be there for you.
    And I promise to be very quiet.

    But if one day you call,
    And there is no answer,
    Come fast to see me,
    Perhaps I need you.

  6. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw, that is very sweet Ray. Good piece.
