Katy Perry used the internet to research which rapper she wanted to collaborate with on her new single – and chose Snoop Dogg after reading his entry on Wikipedia.
The singer teams up with the hip-hop star on her latest track, ‘California Gurls,’ but admits she had to go online to further her rap knowledge ahead of making a decision about a performing partner.
And Perry decided on Snoop Dogg after reading through his page on the encyclopedia website.
She told Canadian radio station Kiss: “I was Wikipedia-ing all the original West Coast people and I was thinking to myself, who is still relevant, who is like the best, cherry on top for this, and it was obvious that it was Snoop.
“He did ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ a couple years ago, he did ‘Sexual Seduction’ – he’s still Mr. Gin and Juice, I mean he doesn’t age. He’s the Doggfather.”
