TREND: Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Inspiration: Colin Firth from Bridget Jones’ Diary and Snoop Dogg
Yes, my dear friends, it ‘tis the season for the obligatory ugly Christmas sweater! There’s really nothing better (okay, except for Mariah maybe) than donning a reindeer on your shirt to get you in the holiday mood. The best part of it all is that it’s fairly cheap to get this season’s warmest look. Just head over to your local Good Will or Value Village and go hunt that sucker down. If you’re not a thrifting fan, don’t fret! Popular stores like J. Crew and Urban Outfitters are selling their own take on tradition. Now everyone can join in on the ugly sweater this season!
TREND: Leather Nails
Inspiration: Alexa Chung
I love how nails have became a canvas for expression this year, all without the palm trees and fake nails of the old days. This time, all around trend-setter Alexa Chung made waves after picking up the trophy for British Style Award again with leather nails. Don’t worry, folks. They’re not real leather, it’s just a matte effect to make them look like the real thing. Leather nail polish is the perfect way to add a little attitude to any outfit even if you’re as sweet as could be.
WTF: Eau de Pizza Hut
Things you can get in Canada: Ketchup chips, Laura Secord chocolate and Pizza Hut perfume. Yep, that last one threw me for a loop and while technically they’re not widely available, I’m still counting it as an only-Canada thing.
The food company only made 110 bottles of the fresh pizza scent with top notes of “freshly baked, hand-tossed dough” and already sent all of them to a few lucky fans. These fans were plucked right off Pizza Hut Canada’s Facebook page after they responded to the company’s question of how much do they love the smell of fresh pizza. Will it be the way to your guy’s heart? I highly doubt it, but it seems like a better idea than Burger King’s Flame by BK meat-scent body spray for men. That stuff is just repulsive.
We’re used to seeing half-naked women and drugs in Snoop Dogg’s music videos, but the thing is, he’s not Snoop Dogg anymore — he’s Snoop Lion. With a new name and a new music direction (reggae) it seems the rapper has also made over his wild music videos.
In the visuals for “La La La,” Snoop Lion talks to cute costumed kids about his new name and whether or not they like it. One of the girls, dressed as a bumble bee, confesses that she liked him better when he was Snoop Dogg (I’m guessing because she prefers dogs to lions).
Snoop Lion leads a conga line of these cute kids through a cartoon version of Noah’s Ark. Then he’s put in a coffin and is resurrected as a lion — King of the Jungle. He sits in his throne while a smoking pineapple floats up and down on the screen.
The song is from his forthcoming album Reincarnated.

I think the last and only time I live-tweeted some type of activity with my dad was back on Father’s Day when I took him to a board game cafe with my sister. The most rebellious things we did that day involved drinking high-calorie Nutella lattes and playing a mobster board game that involved fake guns, but other than that it was pretty Leave It to Beaver.
Snoop Dogg Snoop Lion’s son Corde “Spanky” Broadus’ quality time with dad involves smoking pot. The 18-year-old regularly tweets photos of him smoking but we don’t always getting a glimpse of his badass rapper dad.
Like father like son, right?
Rihanna reflects upon the similarity between fireworks and diamonds bursting in the sky. She was so touched by the spectacle that she’s already planning a new reggae-dance song called “Diamonds in the Sky-iy-iy-iy.” Ashley Tisdale
Ashley Tisdale indulged in an all-American picnic party. It involved her running around a park alone with a single flag waving behind her.
Snoop Dogg appreciates the finer things in life. Like watching hazy orange sunsets in Muskoka, sipping Dom Perignon Rose and posting photos of random women bending over with a lit cigarette between their legs.
“Oh Yeah” — Chris Brown ft. 2 Chainz and Snoop Dogg
Between getting into bar fights with Drake’s entourage and leaking a new song, Chris Brown has sure had a busy week. The young rap star just released a new single “Oh Yeah” as a promotional song for his upcoming album Fortune. And while fans might already recognize the single since Breezy released a solo version back in April, this new version enlists the help of his rap buddies 2 Chainz and Snoop Dogg. I listened to both versions and got sick of Brown’s autotuned rapping within the first 30 seconds, but this new version has some extra padding in the form of clear rhymes by the two big name rappers. I would advise you to check out both versions and make your judgments accordingly. Fortune hits shelves on July 3.
”Liquorice” — Azaelia Banks
Azaelia Banks is a “Wild West Liquorice Bitch” (her words, not mine) in the video for her new single “Liquorice.” As usual, her song mashes genres together, this time laying her feisty raps over a retro house/ dance track. The video itself plays out all the stereotypes of a typical western – leather chaps, riding horses alone through a valley, cowgirl on cowgirl showdown, hot dogs, …wait what? Okay, so I lied. The video is anything but typical, and with styling by Nicola Formichetti (of Lady Gaga fame) and direction by fashion photographer Rankin, the video is a must-see.

You aren’t going insane, that is Tupac Shakur (below) performing at Coachella this past weekend. Tupac rose from the dead on Sunday night as a HOLOGRAM! How cool is that?
It’s often prophesied that the rapper, who died in 1996, will return to the stage and that became a reality when he performed with Snoop Dogg.
Apparently the crowd went wild and we can see why. He look incredibly convincing, so much so, that the ending will keep haunting us.
So what will he do next? Apparently there’s already a Twitter account floating around.
Watch it below:
Neither of my grandmothers understand what a “Snoop Dogg” is and I think I’d be worried if they did. If it weren’t for the popping music behind her, this sweet old lady would have made Snoop Dogg’s tweets sound like a bedtime story. Take the tweet: “imma smoke sum thing right muthaf@&$n now!! That’s that.” She reads it like it’s Twain.
While her foray into Snoop Dogg’s literature is high amusing, I’m waiting for her to take on twitterati Kanye next as he has some of the most classic tweets I can think of.

I have to admit that I’m inexplicably intrigued by Kim Kardashian’s life. Don’t give me that look! I know there are a ton of you out there, considering she now has more Twitter followers than President Obama.
At the same time, I don’t know why we’re drawn to such sadistic drama. Even The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence backs me up on this. She recently commented on how we see Kim’s life as entertainment: “I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone,” Lawrence told Parade. “But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it.”
Kim is a leading lady in the media so it’s no surprise that if a celebrity utters one good or bad word against her, it’s blown out of proportion. Those “battles” are like wildfires — one quote is misinterpreted and all of Hollywood goes a blazing!
Here’s the running tally:
1) We all heard about Jon Hamm slamming the Kims and Paris Hiltons out there. But when Kim slammed Hamm right back by calling him careless, instead of apologizing the Mad Men actor stood by his original burn and said on The Today Show: “It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with, and I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than in a sort of car crash sensibility. And it’s not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what is and here we are.” He also said: “There are a lot of channels on the dials and those channels need to be filled up with things… Its different strokes for different folks” If this feud continues it might become bigger than Kim’s booty!
2) Tough guy actor Jason Statham recently jumped on the bandwagon of insults. During his most recent interview with Details magazine he was asked if he considers himself a brand… his response was “Fahk ‘em. Kim Kardashian’s a brand.”
3) Kris Humphries’ made his first public dig about Kim to Life & Style on March 20. He told the magazine: “I am a genuine person who says it like it is,” he told the mag on March 20. “I only like to be involved with things I truly believe in. It’s the kind of person I am. A lot of people do things just for money, but that’s not for me.” That kind of seems like a dig at workaholic Kim.
Wow divorce really does bring out the best in people!
A look back:
Relationship expert Misogynist Snoop Dogg gave Chris Humphries advice on how to deal with Kim in a recent online video. He said Kim’s “cold-blooded, I’m pretty sure she’ll have a book in a month talking about all the n****s that she got and how she played them.” He also added “so, my advice is you can’t make a ho a housewife. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel.” While I want to think the best of Snoop I wonder if Kim formerly rejected the rapper’s come-ons. In “Drop It Like It’s Hot” he raps: ”See I specialize in making all the girls get naked,” but maybe he wasn’t hot enough for Kim.
5) Barbara Walters did not hold back when she interviewed the Kardashians for her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 segment. Walters grilled the girls throughout the interview and then
implied outright said that she is talentless. “’You don’t really act; you don’t sing; you don’t dance,’ Walters said. ‘You don’t have any – forgive me – any talent!” It’s not really a feud if she’s just stating the facts right? But why is it inappropriate for Jason or Jon to say something similar?
Jordan talks about a video of a girl who’s pissed about leap years, a
video of Snoop Dogg getting roofied at the Playboy Mansion, and pics
of Lady Gaga before she was Lady Gaga
In the latest instalment of Vice Magazine’s “Project X”, Snoop confesses that he was drugged at one of Hugh Hefner’s parties.
He was walking around with a “big ol’ pimp cup” filled with the world’s biggest Mimosa when a couple of playboy bunnies kidnapped his drink. Snoop wasn’t paying attention and that’s when he suspects someone dropped a roofie into his pimp cup. Luckily, the scumbag that slipped them the pill ended up sedating Snoop instead of the playmates.
He eventually blacked out and fell down a flight of stairs but thankfully had some bunnies to nurse him back to health. The story ends much like how any Snoop Dogg story should, he gets high with a bunch of people and shows some girls his magic stick (remix).
Moral of the story: the playboy mansion lives up to its reputation. So if you’re lucky enough to get an invite, keep your eyes on your “big ol’ pimp cup”.
The top dog is back, the Dogfather is here. Snoop Dogg’s new video for “Sitting by the Water” features the rapper dancing in his sweats with a bunch of barely clothed 20-somethings grinding him.
Plus enjoy the
classic outdated rap scene that was used in practically every video from the 90s: bikini-clad chicks drinking alcohol in a hot tub. I don’t find the lyrics or song to be particularly insightful but the back beat is catchy — though Snoop Dogg can’t claim it as his own. It’s a reworked version of Dopefiend’s Diner by 2Pac.
What do you think of it?
When you hear the words “Snoop Dogg” and “arrest”, only one word comes to mind: weed. What else would the rapper be charged with? We all know he huffs that stuff up like it’s oxygen.
According to TMZ, Snoop’s tour bus was stopped by border patrol in Sierra Blanca, a small town in Texas where Willie Nelson was once stopped for the same reason two years ago.
A canine snooped through the bus and found marijuana in a garbage bag in the back of the vehicle.
Snoop was issued a citation for misdemeanor drug possession and shortly released. Snoop has gotten away with this before. If convicted on the drug charge, Snoop could face up to 180 days in jail.
Snoop Dogg helped Drew Carey cohost “The Price Is Right” today. It’s all part of charity week for “The Price Right.” His appearance raised $72,585 for the Snoop Football League, reports MTV.
“The Snoop Youth Football League is something that we created over seven years ago and it was put together to try to help the inner city kids with all the gang violence and drugs and negativity,” Snoop said in a post-show interview. “We wanted to put something in the community that would be positive, they could do that could be here 20 years from now. A football league is very productive and its positive and it keeps a lot of kids out of trouble and it shows them how to organize and work together.”
It is funny to see the whitest man in the world, Drew Carey, with the blackest man in the world, Snoop Dogg, hosting the same show. We live in a wonderful and cool time.
It’s high times both Snoop and Wiz as they shoot their music video for “Smokin’ On”.
I’m sure a pound of weed is on a lot of people’s Christmas wish lists this year and unfortunately, the two rappers beat us to it. It doesn’t look like they want to share, judging from the video stills we found on BuzzFeed.
The two who star in the upcoming film, “Mac and Devin Go To High School”, are becoming the Cheech and Chong of our generation.
“A lot of kids growing up don’t understand who Cheech and Chong are. So we’re the modern-day image of them. We’re bringing it back,” Snoop Dogg said in an interview.
The music video for “Smokin’ On” isn’t out just yet but if you haven’t heard the track you can do so now.
It’s hard to believe The Price Is Right has been on the air for 40 years now. To celebrate the big achievement, the show will have its first celebrity week in January.
Perez Hilton explains that one celebrity will appear each episode to play for a charity of his or her choosing. These celebs include rapper Snoop Dogg, actress Jenny McCarthy, actor Neil Patrick Harris, rocker Chris Daughtry and supermodel Heidi Klum.
The special Price is Right week wont air on CBS until January 2 but executive producer Mike Richards isn’t afraid to spill the beans on how some stars excelled.
“Let’s just say Snoop knows more about the price of grocery items than you might think!” he says.
Here’s the rundown of episodes, as posted on Perez’s website.
Monday, January 2 — Snoop Dogg playing for Snoop Youth Football League
Tuesday, January 3 — Jenny McCarthy playing for Generation Rescue
Wednesday, January 4 — Neil Patrick Harris playing for The Noreen Fraser Foundation
Thursday, January 5 — Chris Daughtry playing for Alzheimer’s Association
Friday, January 6 — Heidi Klum playing for Unicef
I can’t wait to watch. It’s still not the same without the iconic Bob Barker but Drew Carey is holding his own. I’m more excited to see how Snoop’s episode pans out and whether or not Plinko is played.
It’s the winter season and that means celebrities think it’s justified to roam around Hollywood in a ridiculously cheesy Christmas sweater. Said sweater does have it’s benefits. For example, if you’ve been at Nana’s house and ate a little too much roast beef, you can cover up your bloated belly with a Christmas sweater.
Some celebrities like Justin Bieber can look cute in just about anything. But men like Cee Lo Green and John Mayer only end up looking like clowns. You may argue Snoop Dogg doesn’t belong in a Christmas sweater because he’s “too gangster” but that’s precisely why he can rock it.
Let’s take a look at some of our favourite celebrities looking ridiculous yet festive. You can check out more holiday madness at Oh No They Didn’t.

From Taio Cruz’s “Hangover” to Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” to Rihanna’s “We Found Love” this DJ mixes the best with nothing but the best. It’s an incredible song to play at your next Christmas or New Year’s Eve party!
What are you waiting for? Polish off your dancing shoes and listen to this song over and over again.
