  • Following yesterday’s revelation of an attempted Madonna and Tupac Shakur love child, there’s news that David Beckham and Snoop Dogg are total BFFs. Snoop says, “No one would have thought me and my boy David would have anything in common – we come from separate worlds. But he has the dollars at his disposal and we’re talking about putting our money together to do a movie. It’s incredibly exciting. We both love fashion, too, and we might even do a fashion label as well. I think he got his idea to have cornrows in his hair from me, which is great. It’s not just business that we talk about when we’re together, we also chat about our families all the time.” Wow, my nizzle has become a soccer mom.(Mirror)
