Snoop Dogg has been added to an ever-expanding list of celebrities careening head-first into contemporary art’s crumbling edifice. And just like Miley, he’s high as fuck. I’m happy to report that Snoop’s artistic endeavour (an ad for socks, for some reason) features the rapper roasting a blunt while three underwear-clad Benetton models hold his paint brushes.
Apparently, this is all part of his creative process: 'I definitely gotta have a blunt, because the blunt is inspiration to the creation,' he confirmed.
Despite creating his abstract paintings topless, blunt in hand, with a confusing amount of oil on his chest, it seems that Snoop really does want to be taken seriously as an artist. 'Painting gives me an emotion like no other. I could cry while I’m painting. I can laugh while I’m painting. I can be serious while I’m painting. I don’t have no parameters', he told viewers, while sitting on a throne and wearing slippers.
The above is my personal fave, presumably because it reflects Snoops positive outlook on life. Also, he appears to be splattering paint using Robocop’s dick. Suck on that Pollock.
Fair play to him, he may have never actually been this stoned before. Whatever - I’ll take Snoop the artist over Snoop Lion.
