Best Mental Image: Snoop Dogg Weeping Before One of His Own Paintings

We know Snoop Dogg as a rapper, singer, movie star and football coach. There were also those times that he appeared at WrestleMania. Now, at the behest of his fans, the 43-year-old has taken up art. "They were like, 'Man, you should paint,'" Snoop said at his overflowing Friday-morning keynote. "I was like, 'For real?'" He made his first piece while staying at Australia's Versace Hotel and knew it was finished when he sprinkled weed ashes onto the canvas. Such work has since become a cathartic experience. "I'm in a whole 'nother galaxy," he rhapsodized. "I'm smiling, I'm laughing, I'm crying. I'm everywhere."
