Rapper-actor Snoop Dogg will avoid jail time after pleading no contest Wednesday to two felony charges -- but he might be legally allowed to continue smoking marijuana. The entertainer, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, entered the plea to a charge of gun possession by a convicted felon and a marijuana-related drug charge, prosecutors said. Dogg, 35, appeared before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Terry Smerling in Pasadena clad in a leather jacket, black jeans and a T-shirt.

Snoop Dogg has a few choice words for Donald J. Sterling, embattled owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. Unfortunately, almost none of them are fit for publication in a family newspaper's blog. On the heels of an audio recording obtained by TMZ which the website says captures the Los Angeles business magnate upbraiding his girlfriend for “associating with black people” and “taking pictures with minorities” at Clippers games, the erstwhile Doggfather blasted Sterling with his own obscenity-packed videotaped rejoinder posted on Instagram on Saturday.

Rapper-actor Snoop Dogg was arrested Tuesday evening by Burbank police on four felony drug- and weapons-related charges just after he finished taping an appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno." The arrest of the performer, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, stemmed from an investigation after his apprehension last month by police at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a gun and of transporting marijuana.

There's one thing that took a major backseat on the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards: actual awards. The telecast, which aired Tuesday, didn't parcel out many trophies during its two-hour telecast. Instead most of the night was dedicated to live performances from a gamut of acts including Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Future, Rick Ross and the always hotly anticipated cyphers. For those who missed the telecast, and all of the chatter that dominated Twitter throughout the night, we tuned in and kept a running tab of all the moments that wowed, delivered a head scratch or made for a great, and likely profane quotable.

Snoop Dogg was forced to scrap a tour of Britain after authorities denied him entry, according to a statement Tuesday. Snoop has been on a European tour with Sean "Diddy" Combs and had expected to play five dates in Britain.

Kate Upton has teamed up with Snoop Lion (nee Dogg) on another bizarre musical ad for Hot Pockets. It's the rapper's second foray spinning a hit song to promote the college-friendly snack. Last October, he flipped his 2004 hit song "Drop It Like It's Hot" to promote the brand with the remix, "Pocket Like It's Hot. " This time the company seems to be operating on the notion that the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model can sell just about anything. In this go-round, the music video spoofs Biz Markie's 1989 single "Just a Friend (You Got What I Need)

He has rushed for 2,583 career yards at Penn State and USC - the most by any active player in major college football. But he suffered a knee injury during spring practice that required surgery. He has been limited during training camp while recovering.

There are underdogs. And there are underdogs. Then there is "Turbo," a garden snail who dreams of winning the Indy 500. Honestly, they pretty much had me at "racing snails. " The idea for animation's latest 3-D event movie sounded absurd enough to provide fertile visual terrain: the vroom, vroom grit of Indy racing action, the Garden of Eden lushness of tomato vine crawling. There is the general shape of all things snail as well: the shell, the slime, those antennae eyes.
