Snoop Barred from the Land Down Under
Y'all (all 10 of you) might be wondering why Snoop Dogg keeps popping up on a primarily hippie jam band blog, but seriously, who doesn't love this guy?
According to Billboard, life's just not getting any easier for Snoop, who "has been refused entry into Australia because of his extensive criminal record, the immigration minister said...
Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said Snoop Dogg's visa was canceled because he had failed to pass the country's strict character test, which takes criminal convictions into account. "He doesn't seem the sort of bloke we want in this country," Andrews told Sydney's Macquarie Radio... In March, Snoop Dogg and fellow rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs were forced to scrap a tour of Britain after authorities denied Snoop Dogg a visa."
