Apparently paying double most families' yearly income for an hour of "performing" isn't enough to get a washed-up criminal / rapper to represent at a childrens charity event. I was going to write my version of what happened, but somehow ended up ranting about how rappers and professional athletes should swap their salaries with teachers and police officers, so here's the scoop direct from the New York Post:
If you want Snoop Dogg to play at an event, not only will you have to pay his $150,000 fee, you'll have to accommodate his unusual tastes and enormous entourage. Organizers of Tuesday night's Pussycat Dolls concert at Cipriani Wall Street to benefit UNICEF (United Nations Childrens Fund), which also featured the rapper, had to fly in more than 10 members of his posse, first-class. Then, at the last minute, Snoop almost didn't go on because, "he insisted on having an Xbox in his dressing room," an insider said. "We finally found someone who lent us their kids' Xbox, and had to put Snoop somewhere on the third floor because he was smoking so much dope." Snoop and his pals were having such a good time they were an hour late making it to the stage...
There you go. Countless innocent children are abused sexually, physically, and mentally everyday, but Calvin Broadus needs him some Xbox. Can some one get this man a fire to die in?
