This week we asked actors, actresses, directors and Miss USA (!), what they thought of the name news: the rapper Snoop Dogg recently announced, after a trip to Jamaica, that he now wants to be referred to as Snoop Lion. He calls the moniker shift “an evolution”–we call it a risk! Is there a stronger branded name in rap? (Other than, perhaps, his old partner and producer Dr. Dre, he of the Dr. Pepper commericals and omnipresent headphones.)
In any case, everyone had an opinion: Vivica Fox, Kick Kennedy, Chaske Spencer, and more. So we collected their thoughts and answers to the question: Do you think “Snoop Lion” is an improvement on “Snoop Dogg”? Would you change your name, given the chance?
