Ugh, it’s been way too long since we’ve had any good True Blood info, so I’m taking this as a win even though it barely qualifies: Snoop Dogg wants to be on True Blood. Yes!
On his new single “Gangsta Luv,” Snoop raps that “Everyday is the same thang, I creep in/ It’s like True Blood, I sink my teeth in,” and apparently the name check wasn’t for nothing: Snoop told MTV he’s a Bon Temps nut. “I love that show. I wish I could be on it. I’d be a hell of a vampire, don’t you think? So what’s happenin’? True Blood, get at me — Snoop Dogg wants to be a vampire,” he said.
I am completely in support of Team Snoop on this. True Blood’s calling card is its more-is-more attitude – a willingness to do anything; I consider myself a fan, but even I admit the show can get a little ridiculous. If there can be a vampire queen of Louisiana who plays Yahtzee in between vigorous sexual encounters, I’m pretty sure there can be a role for Snoop Dogg. (Ahem, folk song waiting to happen.)
Who would you want Snoop to play, PopWatchers? I vote for higher-up vampire management.
