Snoop Dogg, who is now going by the name Snoop Lion in his new reggae career, wants to be a judge on “American Idol”.
In his recent interview, Snoop learned Mariah Carey was making around $18 million for a one-year contract with the show and said, “I’ll do American Idol”, before jokingly yelling to his manager, “Get on it!”
The rapper/reggae star is known for his love of weed and offensive language. But, he claims he’ll clean up his act a bit if he gets the job.
Snoop stated, “I’ll clean my act up, but I’m still Rastafari”.
“American Idol” will return to television in January with Mariah Carey filling one of the slots on the judging panel after Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler left the show last month.
The show declined to comment on any speculation about potential new judges.
