After His Snoop Lion Mishap, Snoop Dogg Was ‘Barred’ from Becoming a Rastafarian



Snoop Dogg may be one of the most well-known musicians in the world, but his work has gotten him into trouble more than once, and ten years ago it even resulted in him being ‘barred’ from becoming a Rastafarian.

Snoop Lion just got banned

The musician, who is now 51, became a follower of the faith while working on his debut reggae album, Reincarnated, which was published in 2013 and with a companion documentary.

However, some Rastafarians took offense to this and accused the artist of exploiting their faith for personal gain in order to sell his music.

Legendary musician Bunny Wailer led the detractors in believing that Snoop, who wanted to go by Snoop Lion, was not sincere about his interest in Rastafarianism and reggae.

In a 2013 Facebook post, Wailer took it upon himself to demand the rapper be “ex-communicated” from the Jamaican Rastafari Millennium Council, writing: “The word ex-communication means putting [someone] out of fellowship.

Spiritual condemnation of the individual or community is a component of ex-communication in certain faiths. Depending on the religion, the offense that led to ex-communication, or the laws or norms of the religious group, ex-communication may involve expulsion, shunning, and shame.

Wailer, a devoted Rastafarian, merely made the revelation on social media, but he may have had some influence because it was he who gave Snoop Dogg the name “Lion” in the first place.

Later, Wailer told TMZ that Snoop had “outrightly fraudulently used the characters and symbolism of the Rastafari Community.”

The Rastafari Millennium Council, also known as the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council, wrote the rapper a seven-page letter requesting that he stop misappropriating their religion.

Before choosing to excommunicate the rapper, they stated that they wanted him to formally apologize and stop using the name “Lion.” They even threatened to file a lawsuit.

The criticism had a significant impact on Snoop, who later revealed to NME that he was having second thoughts about his decision to enter the reggae genre.

I definitely feel like I’m going to do more music, but I don’t know if I’m going to travel to Jamaica; I may want to go somewhere else, he added, adding that the change was a precious event.

He said, “I may want to venture into another region of the world. Some things you let them be what they are,” acknowledging that things hadn’t exactly gone as intended.

I’m simply saying that I’m unsure of whether I want to go to Jamaica and create a reggae album again, he continued. “I don’t know. I could want to go to another nation and record a reggae album or a rap album.”

We can only assume that Snoop Dogg took the “ban” seriously since he has returned to social media in a big way.


Black Adam to Lose a Lot After Its Release



Although Dwayne Johnson’s blockbuster Black Adam may have challenged the DCEU’s system of power, it failed to perform well at the box office. According to Variety, the most recent DC blockbuster has only made $387 million globally since it opened in theaters on October 21.

News by the Numbers

Black Adam could lose between $50 and $100 million at the box office due to a $195 million production cost, an estimated $80 to $100 million marketing expense, and the fact that movie theaters keep about half the ticket sale revenues.

Still Making It

Variety said that Black Adam will eventually break even at $600 million, while Warner Bros. sources claim that the real figure is $425 million. Black Adam had a strong opening weekend, grossing $140 million worldwide. Even though the movie’s second weekend experienced a significant 59% fall, it managed to maintain its box office dominance.

Not only Black Adam has recently had trouble earning money at the box office. Strange World, a significant animated film from Disney, had a poor $12 million opening weekend and then experienced a 60% decrease to $4.9 million. Not the best times for these movies, but hopefully they would do better later on.

To Play “Elden Ring” with Him for 40 Hours, a Gamer Pays a Cam Girl $20,000




The video game Elden Ring is fantastic and offers a unique single-player experience, but it’s also a riot when played with others.

More fun with Friends

The new open-world adventure from FromSoftware is fairly similar to its predecessors in that you can call in friends (or complete strangers) to explore and aid you against some of the more difficult bosses.

If you’re feeling extremely vicious, you can even invade the worlds of other gamers and bring them untold suffering.

However, not everyone has companions who are prepared to invest the time necessary to truly master a game like Elden Ring. What should a daring explorer do in such a circumstance? Apparently, you can pay a cam girl $20,000 for a 40-hour encounter.

Using the website CamSoda, 31-year-old Chris from New Jersey claims to have paid adult model Charley Hart $20,160 (or roughly £15,200) to play Elden Ring with him for one extended session.

According to Chris, “I typically play campaigns by myself in my boxer briefs and overdose on carbs while consuming energy drinks.” We became fairly close and connected on a deeper level, so it was lovely to have Charley traveling with me through The Lands Between.

I truly loved her company, and I hope to stream with her again when the next big game is released, he continued.

Chris claims that Charley and he completed the game in 40 hours. Even though it’s not impossible, it’s still quite an accomplishment. Chris was reportedly turned off by it and never wanted to do anything similar again.

It was intense, he acknowledged. “I was hellbent on finishing the game, but if I ever play a full campaign, I’m going to split it up next time.”

According to Charley, some cam ladies reported an increase in requests to game during the pandemic, with some customers perhaps simply preferring the firm under lockdown.

“I’ve joined clients for longer periods of time while they game, prepare dinner, eat dinner, etc. It’s like long-form camming,” she added. “I’m not simply a cam girl who acts for, say, 7 minutes.”

“I didn’t fully realize how long 40 consecutive hours is. It takes a lot of stamina, in more ways than one. But Chris and I really hit it off at the beginning, and it was fun,” the participant said.

This Latest Netflix Movie Manages to Grab a Perfect Score on Rotten Tomatoes



Rotten Tomatoes gave Netflix’s most recent creature movie a perfect score, praising it for its moralistic narrative, entertaining special effects, and inventive takes on Swedish mythology.

An Interesting Plot

The protagonist of the tale is the paleontologist Nora Tidemman, who grew up hearing tales from Swedish mythology from her father. Nora joins forces with an academic, a soldier, and a government advisor to investigate a string of fatalities on a hillside and learn what is going on in Dovre. The mountain then begins to move, and the troll that lives there wreaks havoc on the people who are endangering its home.

Great Results

Troll has received numerous comparisons to Godzilla in reviews, and it formerly had a perfect critic score on Rotten Tomatoes. The score has since dropped to 85%, but that’s still a pretty remarkable performance for a movie in 2022, knowing that there are a lot of good movies out there.
