I’ve always had a soft spot for Snoop Lion/Dogg (whatever he calls himself now) because I find his music hilarious and cheeky, like he just doesn’t care what people think — which is probably half the reason they become hits, anyway. That, and the fact that he’s a smart musician for using really likable and danceable hooks in his songs. I also like the title of this too. Very poetic for the Snoopster.
And now he’s teamed up with Miley Cyrus — can any tandem be as strange? But surprisingly, on this song, it works! I’ve also come to respect Miley. It can’t be easy trying to become an adult under the squeaky-clean perfection of the Disney aesthetic. It has got to leave some marks. So kudos to the girl for trying to do things her way without unraveling (exhibits A, B and C: LiLo, Amanda Bynes and Britney Spears). There’s a core of strength in there for sure.
So sit back, relax — have a beer and/or a spliff (if you can get one and that’s your thing) and happy Friday! 😉
