Snoop Dogg keeps it real on 'The View'



In what has to be the most incongruous coupling since Joe Pesci hooked up with Angie Everhart, Snoop Dogg showed up on The View on Friday to shill his new album, Ego Trippin', and TV show, Father Hood.

Snoop was nice enough to humor Barbara Walters and the gang questioning him about changing his image (along with asking him about his youth football league, clothing line and addiction to One Life to Live).

"I just think it's evolution; When I become a full-grown man I'm stepping into you know reality and seeing what I need to be doing," he said. "... When y'all seen me before I was still growing, I was still finding out who I was, and right now I've finally come to the pinnacle and I understand that this is what I need to be doing and I'm happy to be doing it."

But don't cry for the passing of our old D-O-double-G; When Babs asked him if that meant giving up the weed, he replied, "I didn't say that." Why not?   

"I just have a medical condition where I need to have medical marijuana in my life," he smirked. "I can't see that good." Riiight.

Catch the whole interview in the video above. And hope your son doesn't grow up to date Snoop's daughter.
