So, once he took off, how far did Snoop’s fame take him? Well, it took him all the way to Bollywood! That’s right, Snoop Dogg starred in the 2008 Bollywood rom-com film called “Singh Is Kinng”.
The movie’s theme song (which was filmed in Chicago) combined Bhangra and English lyrics. He also made an appearance in Korean singer Psy’s song “Hangover”. Needless to say, Snoop has definitely been seen and heard worldwide.
Some Unexpected Musical Tastes
While you might think a rapper like Snoop Dogg might primarily listen to only rap or hip-hop, he actually has a rather varied musical taste. When he’s not working on his own music, he might be chilling out with Lionel Richie, Journey, and even Nancy Sinatra.
Reportedly, he likes “All Night Long,”, “Don’t Stop Believing” and “These Boots Are Made for Walking”. It just goes to show you that you can’t judge a book by its cover or a rap artist by his music genre.
A Unique Education
For someone with as many diverse skills and talents as Martha Stewart, you would be curious to know what her majors were in college. It turns out that Martha actually went to school for some rather niche subjects.
She earned her bachelor’s degree from Barnard College in what appeared to be a joint major for art, European history, and architectural history. Her art and architectural background may have helped her as she began her home and lifestyle brand.
Wall Street Martha
Before she was the queen of all things home and hospitality, Martha Stewart was running in the rat race, on Wall Street that is. She was a stockbroker for a boutique firm but it seemed that Stewart’s creative and entrepreneurial bends overtook her white-collar profession, which is why she worked on Wall Street until 1972 and then let her entrepreneurial streak come to full fruition.
It was Stewart’s ability to reinvent herself that helped her succeed in different professional and creative spheres.
Snoop Dogg Gives Back
Many know him as a famous rapper, but Snoop Dogg also appears to have a heart for the disadvantaged and those in need. In 2005, he helped found a nonprofit organization (Snoop Youth Football League) for inner-city kids in Los Angeles to participate in cheerleading and football.
Snoop Youth Football League became the largest youth football organization in Southern California and even expanded into Texas. He also co-founded a charity in Jamaica and was part of an auction for Habitat for Humanity.
