Snoop Dogg Denied in Britain

Rapper Snoop Dogg was denied a visa for a series of concerts planned to happen in Britain, both CNN and MSNBC are reporting.

The CNN article has a quote from Snoops publicist, who says he is "mystified" by the decision and is willing to do whatever it takes to make the situation right. The publicist went on to say that a planned concert with P Diddy will go on "no matter what the outcome."

The MSNBC article says that the British government cannot comment on individual cases, but that a person could be denied entry to the country if they do not believe the person would be doing any sort of public service.
