The rapper lends his support to the controversial contestant
Snoop Dogg has revealed himself as a fan of X Factor’s most recent controversial act, rapper Honey G – saying that he’d love to duet with her.
The ‘Signs’ hitmaker has revealed that he’s such a fan of the 35-year old ‘North Weezy’ resident that he would drop everything at a moment’s notice for the chance to rap with the X Factor star in the show’s final.
“I will drop whatever I have on to give them an X Factor exclusive and duet with Honey”, Snoop told The Daily Star, encouraging viewers to pick up the phone and vote to keep Honey G in by assuring them that together they could give “a performance like The X Factor ain’t never seen before.”
Honey G, real name Anna Georgette Gilford, won the support of viewers after her rendition of Tupac’s classic ‘California Love’ on Saturday Night’s show.
Although through to next week’s show, Sharon Osbourne’s initial decision to let Honey G through to the live finals was a controversial one. Speaking to the Daily Star, Snoop defended the decision, “she knows what she is doing. She knows the public want to be entertained… What’s the alternative? Listen to 12 people sing power ballads for the whole season. Simon and Sharon know that ain’t going to make a fun show.”
Honey G has recently come under scrutiny, with The Guardian accusing her of racism and her act as ‘the modern equivalent of black face’.
