Snoop Dogg Says He’s Never Smoked Marijuana with Potluck Cohost Martha Stewart: ‘She Don’t Partake’
To some viewers, the pairing of Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart on their cooking-meets-talk show Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party may have been an unlikely one, but the rapper says their connection extends well beyond the TV screen.

“We have an appreciation for each other and that makes any friendship genuine,” Snoop, 45, told People in the Tanqueray tent at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival on Saturday. “It makes it work, appreciating what someone brings to the table.”

However, despite the cheeky name of their VH1 series and having baked “green brownies” together, Snoop says their hangouts don’t involve smoking pot together.

Bands We Like: Ghostland Observatory

By Zachary Swickey

Too often I fall victim to the classic “judging a book by its cover” and miss out on a great band simply because of their name (Foster the People, anyone?). A few years ago, I recall seeing “Ghostland Observatory” emblazoned seemingly everywhere I looked: magazines, music news, festival lineups. What the heck does it even mean? To this day, I have no freakin’ clue, but I’ve been making up for lost time by catching their concerts – a digital light show extravaganza – at every opportunity and preaching their greatness to anyone within earshot.

Surprisingly, Ghostland is just a duo of best buds from a place where it’s cool to be weird: Austin, Texas. Thomas Ross Turner mans the drums/keys/synthesizers, providing most of the signature Ghostland digital bleeps and blurps that the band is famous for. He frequently, or pretty much always, dons a cape,
