    Rapper Snoop Dogg is presumably concerned that the public will forget who he is. Therefore, he is doing his best to stay in the news by any means. First, the man born Calvin Broadus went on record rationalizing the difference between morning radio DJ Don Imus' now-infamous usage of the word "ho's" and how the word is used in hip-hop lyrics.

    "It's a completely different scenario," Snoop explained to MTV.com. "[Rappers] are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We're talking about ho's that's in the 'hood that ain't doing s**t, that's trying to get a n**ga for his money. These are two separate things."

    Then, today, Snoop pled no contest to gun and drug charges stemming from his arrest at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California last October. He dodged jail time, but will face five years' probation and 800 hours of community service.

    Additionally, with outstanding weapon possession charges from November in Orange County, an arrest in Stockholm, Sweden for drug possession, and a ban from entering the United Kingdom, Snoop is making friends all over the world, Doggie-style.
