Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Broadus is not a man who passes up an opportunity to two-step on national TV. Here he joins Charlie Wilson on Jimmy Kimmel Live for a performance of “Infectious”.
The WWE’s Monday Night RAW swung through LA last night so you know Snoop had to make an appearance and introduce the crowd to #SnoopMania. After being rudely interupted by Curtis Axel, Snoop called on the OG maniac to help him clean up the ring.

Reggie will be moving on to the Late Late Show when James Corden becomes the permanent host next month. Check out a preview of CuDi’s guest spot above.

Here’s a very quick teaser for The Get Down a new show set in the bubbling Hip-Hop and Punk scenes of New York City during the 1970′s. This was around the time Hip-Hop was starting to make its way out of the housing projects of the Bronx and into the city’s clubs, The Ramones and other acts were inventing Punk at CBGB and I was being born. I find it to be an absolutely fascinatiing era in the city’s history and it should make a nice backdrop for a drama series.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The Get Down will focus on 1970s New York — broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. (Watch the teaser trailer, above.) Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them — except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco — told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world … forever.
The show will be helmed by director Baz Luhrmann, whose style (The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge) is a bit glossy for the subject matter, but The Shield‘s Shawn Ryan is also involved so that’s encouraging. I’m here for this.
Jimmy Kimmel dropped a new edition of musicians reading mean tweets about themselves last night and it features Drake, Katy Perry, Wiz Khalifa, Sam Smith, Childish Gambino, Iggy Azaela, Arianna Grande and many others. Most of these are prettty funny, but I’m sure they could’ve found a meaner tweet for Drake to read.
