Blush Slammed by Critics After Their US TV Debut on 'SYTYCD' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 22nd 2011 6:50AM
BlushOh, the highs and lows of cracking the US TV and music markets. Last night girl group Blush -- themselves the product of a reality TV talent search -- made their US TV debut on 'So You Think You Can Dance,' a pretty major gig in anyone's book.

However, their performance of 'Undivided' featuring Snoop Dogg has been slated by critics. Hardly the reception the girls were looking for on their first outing.

'EW' referred to them as "Pussycat Dolls Lite," adding that "The obvious similarities were unfortunate, especially since their routine was even more mind-numbingly boring than Nicole Scherzinger's performance last week. ... Seriously, though, who did Snoop get high to get those girls on the show?"

Snoop Dogg Talks Prince William's Song on 'Lopez'To say that the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton will be an extremely dignified affair is surely an understatement. But must the future king's bachelor party be that way? Apparently Queen Elizabeth II doesn't think so.

On 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), Snoop Dogg claimed that the Queen phoned the rapper and requested "somethin' special for her grandkid. So why not? Let me do it. I'm the best one when it comes to throwin' parties anyway."

'Wet' is the result: a special anthem for the royal "stag" party. He explained, "I want him to have a little bit of fun before he get married ... to see all the girls that you gonna be able to see before you lie down with that one. And enjoy yourself."

George Lopez then asked if Snoop would perform a few lines in the studio, and he obliged.

The singer had frequently collaborated with Snoop Dogg, as well as Eminem and Dr. Dre.

Williams said she also loved Nate Dogg. "He was the smooth voice before Auto-Tune," she said. "Any time you needed somebody to put the stank on your hip-hop record, he was just smooth."

Regis Philbin 'Felt Pretty Good' After Meeting 'Snoopy' AKA Snoop Dogg (VIDEO)

Regis Philbin, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Regis Philbin looked like he'd just come from hanging out with Snoop Dogg for his appearance on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). At least, we assume that based on his description of the experience.

He was positively buzzing with excitement from the moment he entered the set. "I met Snoop Dogg," he said excitedly. "I visited with Snoopy upstairs."

"It's not Snoopy," David Letterman corrected.

"Did you notice anything unusual going on up there?" David Letterman asked of his time with the rapper.

Cameron Diaz Bought Weed from Snoop Dogg -- in High School (VIDEO)

Cameron Diaz Talks Snoop Dogg on 'Lopez Tonight'Before Cameron Diaz made her acting debut in 'The Mask,' she was a model. And before that, she was just a "homegirl" from "the LBC," as in bad-ass Long Beach, California.

She went to a huge high school ("like 3500 kids") but remembers a particular student stood out: Snoop Dogg. "He was a year older than me," she said on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS). "He was very tall and skinny, wore lots of ponytails on his head. And I'm pretty sure I bought weed from him -- I had to have."

Jane Lynch, Jersey Shore, Kathy Griffin, and Everyone Else on the 'Do Something Awards' (VIDEO)

Jane Lynch, Jersey Shore, Kathy Griffin, and Everyone Else on the 'Do Something Awards' It's time to give something back. That was the message of the '2010 Do Something Awards' (Mon., 9PM ET on VH1). This awards show honors the generous work of celebrities and of regular people who make a difference.

'Glee' star Jane Lynch hosted the show, and opened up the performance while surrounded by a "crew" of Jane Lynch lookalikes. Kathy Griffin won as best 'Do Something' comedian, based on her work for human rights, AIDS, and LGBT groups. Snoop Dogg won an award for his work with a youth football league. (And did we ever think we'd see the day that Snoop Dogg would win on a humanitarian awards show? Not that Snoop isn't a great guy. It's just a little ... jarring.)

'Twilight' star Kellan Lutz won for his work with animals, and the 'Jersey Shore' cast also showed up ... for some inexplicable reason. But the big winner for the night was regular, non-celebrity girl Jessica Pozner. She was the grand prize recipient, and got $100,000 to help expand her school for girls in Kenya, which exists in that nation's largest slum. Congrats, Jessica! And excellent work, everyone!

One Life to Live, Snoop DoggSnoop Dogg is pretty friendly with Nora and Bo Buchanan on 'One Life to Live' (weekdays, 2PM ET on ABC), them being in law enforcement and all. And he certainly knows a lot about them, because, you know, "Snoop got the scoop from his East Coast protection."

But his presence definitely kicked their cool factor up a few notches with their son. Bo even calls The Shizzolator by his birth name – Calvin. How cool is that?!

Most Awkward Award Show Moments (VIDEO)

by Mike Scalise, posted Jan 8th 2010 4:00PM
First she did a twirly hug, then made an odd, slurry joke about a kitten, spoke at a rate of about one word per minute and seemed to have her own personal hype man ('Precious' director Lee Daniels). And what did we do while we watched Mariah Carey's acceptance speech for Breakthrough Actress at last weekend's Palm Springs Film Festival?

We winced. We cringed. Then we watched it again.

Carey's, uh, loosened speech was the first genuinely awkward moment this award show season, but there were many actors, filmmakers, and musicians before her who've heard their name called, stepped to the podium, and made things a little weird for everyone.

They could be the next great comedy team.

Snoop Dogg returning to One Life to Live

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 12th 2009 11:01AM
snoop_dogg_handsThe Dogg is back. That's right, rapper Snoop Dogg is returning to One Life to Live on February 24... and you know what? I'm excited about it. Believe it or not, but when it comes to musicians dropping into a daytime soap, Snoop's was one of the best. You do know that singers often are written into a soap for a song and scene or two, don't you? Well, they do. Oftentimes, however, it's just awkward and unreal.

One Life to Live, on the other hand, does it really well. The last time Snoop was there, back in May, he did a couple of songs and interacted with the cast. The writers made it that Snoop had a past history with Bo, so they could get into it a bit in a funny way. When Snoop returns in February, he and Bo wil mix it up again. The Dogg will also do a song from his new CD, Malice N Wonderland.
