Celebrity News From Hollywood

There were some heart-warming scenes on Hollywood Boulevard this week as Snoop Dogg was finally recognized for his long career by being awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Snoop arrived dressed in typically suave fashion alongside his childhood sweetheart and wife of 21 years, Shante Taylor. Snoop – who is actually called Calvin Broadus – was also accompanied by his kids.

Taylor and Snoop have three kids together – 24-year-old Cordé, Cordell, 21, and 19-year-old Cori. He also has a son from another relationship called Julian Corrie, who is 20.

The unveiling ceremony saw Snoop and his family looking made up as TV host Jimmy Kimmel made a speech about the rapper, whose album ‘Doggystyle’ will turn 25 this week.

The star is actually outside the El Capitan Entertainment Center, which is where ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ is filmed.

The ceremony was also attended by some legends of the music world, such as Snoop’s friends Dr Dre, Pharrell Williams, Warren G and Quincy Jones.

Snoop made sure to pay special thanks to the one person who has made it all happen – himself.

He said: “I want to thank me for believing in me, I want to thank me for doing all this hard work.

“I wanna thank me for taking no days off. I wanna thank me for never quitting.”

This isn’t the only recognition that has been coming Snoop’s way recently. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce recently awarded him an accolade for his work as a businessman.
