Snoop Dogg defends himself over controversial Kansas show
Snoop Dogg seems pretty befuddled by the reaction to his performance at Kansas’ Midnight Madness festivities.
Kansas athletic director Jeff Long was forced to apologize for the show, stating that they had asked for a “clean” version of Snoop Dogg’s show and were upset by how it had turned out. Snoop isn’t sure why, telling Howard Stern that he was surprised by the apology and had “the time of my life” performing at the university.
“I think it was more the publicity of what I did,” Snoop said, via TMZ. “They had to cover it up. And, I respect them, and I wasn’t gonna put no smut on their name and say they did anything wrong because they invited me to come do what I do.
“And, when you pay for Snoop Dogg, you gon’ get Snoop Dogg.”
Snoop’s right, for the record. If you bring in Snoop Dogg for a performance like this, what else are you expecting? The stripper poles weren’t what they wanted, and the money gun was probably ill-timed considering the trouble Kansas is in with the NCAA right now, but it’s not the rapper’s job to know that.
