Snoop Dogg is up for two awards on Sunday at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards for his collaboration with pop star Katy Perry on her hit single “California Gurls,” which is nominated for Best Female Video and Best Pop Video. On Tuesday, the Doggfather told CBSNews.com that if the super-duo wins, he has the perfect place to display his Moonman — atop his Cadillac.
An odd place to store such a prize, to say the least, but with Snoop you never know what to expect. In fact, we couldn’t help but wonder where else the eccentric rapper might showcase his music award.
Hit the jump to see what funky alternatives we were able to come up with …
Snoop’s Dogg House
When Snoop isn’t on the road touring or in the lab working, he’s at home relaxing in the backyard shed he so eloquently dubbed the Pittsburgh Steelers Den. Pimped out with memorabilia from his beloved NFL squad, Snoop can rest his newly awarded Moonman right next to the recliner he rests on while watching Monday Night Football.
Atop the Bathtub
On his seminal classic debut, Doggystyle, the Dogg demonstrated that he likes to unwind in a warm bubble bath with a fine dime. What better way to both admire your work and impress his lady while getting so fresh and so clean?
Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles
Snoop donates the Moonman to his favorite soul food spot, the one that’s been feeding him golden brown, fried chicken and waffles for years, after long nights of drinking gin and juice.
Dr. Dre’s Studio
Discovered by Dre in 1992, when the two hip-hop titans collaborated on the theme song for the “Deep Cover” movie soundtrack, Calvin Broadus’ owes his long and brilliant career to the Doctor. In a gift of appreciation, Snoop offers his 2010 VMA trophy to Dr. Dre’s studio in gratitude for all he’s done.
Snoop was named an executive at Priority Records in 2009. It’s only right that the award sit at the desk of “the label that pays him.”
