Snoop Dogg and P. Diddy Denied By UK

The United Kingdom is showing no love to rap entertainer Snoop Doggy Dog. The UK leg of the P Diddy/Snoop Dogg tour has been cancelled due to the refusal to give Snoop a visa. The shows were called off after "credible behind the scenes efforts were made, to no avail, to reverse the decision,” a tour spokesperson said.

Snoop Dogg had hoped the government would reconsider his visa, after he said he was promoting a message of non-violence to children and would make a donation to an anti-violence charity.
