Five Questions With...
Hip-hop stars are notoriously unreliable when it comes to press. Call the American Idol rep, and Diana DeGarmo will be dusting your office within the hour, but Ludacris, Dre, Cube, LL--these guys have better things to do. Like, I don't know, shooting hoops or dipping their nose hairs in gold. So when a press agent promised an interview with Snoop Dogg to promote his upcoming appearance at Saturday's Linkin Park show and, even better, his after-party that night at Erykah Badu's badass Black Forest Theater, we should have known better. We should have known that the phone wouldn't ring. It's just that we wanted to interview the Dogg so badly. Well, finally the phone did ring, but it was Diana DeGarmo, promoting last week's appearance at Nokia Live. Typical. Still, we figured we'd go ahead and ask her the five questions we'd already sent through Snoop's convenient Shizzolator.
There is a rumor that yo' ass no longer smoke weed. Dog(g), level wit us. Could this be true?
I'm just really excited to be a part of this amazing show. This is the most amazing, amazing show ever.
Why is yo' ass touring with Linkin Park, yo? They straight-up bootleg.
Hmm, maybe you're thinking of last season. This has John Stevens, and the fabulous George Huff, and LaToya London...
Dat's cool. So, what's yo' favorite TV show n' shit?
American Idol! Oh, and also, I like Days.
Have yo' ass ever shot anyone? And if so, who's yo' favorite?
It doesn't matter that Fantasia won, because we're all winners. Fantasia and I are still best friends. I'm best friends with everyone, really. Even you. You're my best friend.
Recently yo' ass hosted Girls Gone Wild, know what I'm sayin'? Tell us: Is yo' ass a leg or a wing mutha?
Are you saying I look fat in this?
