Snoop Dogg Praises Britney Spears at Billboard Awards
After working with tons of big names in the music industry, it’s hard to imagine Snoop Dogg being star struck, but at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 22) the rapper couldn’t keep his eyes off Britney Spears.
“Britney looked good!” Snoop told the BoomBox of Spears’ surprise performance with Rihanna during the show. “I’m proud of Britney. Nobody likes to give respect and appreciation to women when they go down and turn it back around and get back up. She should be commended for getting better, sounding good and looking good. She is always going to be the queen of pop stars.”
Snoop would also take the stage during the award show, assisting Far East Movement on their single ‘If I Was You (OMG).’
“It’s a lot of young girls that look up to her so when she got her life back together she should be commended for that. She shows little girls that you can mess up and get back up.” As far as the possibility of a future collaboration, Snoop left the ball in Spears’ court. “You have to ask Britney.”
With everything on his plate professionally, the father of three remains focused on his family and is working on a show with his daughter, Cori. “I’m just trying to stay active. With me I don’t really like to talk about it, I like to be about it,” he said when asked to give further details on the show.
