Snoop Dogg: I love cartoons

Snoop Dogg has revealed that he was an avid Charlie Brown watcher as a child.

The rapper stars alongside David Beckham and Rita Ora in an animated advert for sport clothing company Adidas.

Being part of an animation was an amazing experience for Snoop.

"Growing up, I liked Scooby-Doo and Charlie Brown," he told British newspaper The Sun.

"But I don't watch cartoons anymore because I star in them! I'm creating one right now, called Baby Dogg. It's gonna be the s**t!

"I thought it was fly how they brought Ebenezer Snoop and all the other stars to life."

Snoop Dogg is preparing for the release of his first reggae inspired album Reincarnation under his new alias Snoop Lion.

The musician embraces his transformation.

"It's always a challenge when you're trying something new. But when the spirit calls you to something, you just have to go with it," Snoop said.

"I'm a musical person and Rastafari has always been in me, so I was able to get it together pretty quickly."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
