Snoop Dogg

I don't think I can fully describe just how much I enjoy Snoop Dogg's buttery-smooth rapping voice. Now Snoop isn't exactly the youngest cat around the block, especially if you compare his fairly extensive career with newcomers like Lil' Wayne and The Cool Kids. However, unlike Lil' Wayne's headache-inducing croak of a voice, Snoop Dogg has always retained his silky smooth rap sound, regardless of his slightly creepy physical appearance (come on, he has a pimp cane and a full suit covered in cupcakes in the "California Gurls" video). I forget all about the often inane lyrics that haunt most popular rap when I listen to Snoop, even when it is his own lyrics which are inane.
But Katy Perry's new radio hit is not what this post is about. This post is about how Snoop Dogg recently tried to rent out the country of Liechtenstein. The WHOLE COUNTRY. All for his new music video. Unfortunately for him, he didn't give Liechtenstein enough of a heads-up, and the deal fell through, according to The Daily Mirror. However, a local property lease agent, which the Mirror would like you to believe was the counterparty to Snoop in this deal (I don't know if he is, but it isn't really spelled out in the article, and I'm inclined to doubt the Daily Mirror because it's a British tabloid), says that it would have been possible, if there had been more time.

So now you know. If you ever get boatloads of money and have no idea what to do with it, you can rent out AN ENTIRE EUROPEAN COUNTRY. ALL FOR YOURSELF.

And, in case you forgot where Liechtenstein actually was located:

It's in that small green circle. So small, in fact, that I actually can't see it on this map. It's in between Switzerland and Austria, so that's approximately where your video would be shot if you decided to rent out the country. If you like both those countries, then you're in luck.
