Snoop Dogg got all sassy at the Stellar Awards as he tried to explain why hes entered the world of gospel.
Were used to hearing the gangster rapper chant about sex and drugs in his secular lyrics, however, with the release of his new album Bible of Love, it looks like the star has reinvented himself and is turning to God for inspiration.
Yes, were also confused at this move.
But Snoop has confirmed hes finally found himself and has recently worked with gospel legends Erica Campbell, Marvin Sapp, Tye Tribbett and Charlie Wilson to create an impressive 32-track double album.
The 46-year-old has now responded to critics who are offended at the singer suddenly finding himself and changing his beliefs.
When asked by TV One what hed say to these people who dont like the idea of him touring to gospel music, Snoop has the best answer ever.
He unleashed his diva mode and siad: I thought church was supposed to welcome sinners. If the church was full of saints it wouldnt be right.
What they need to do is be warm and welcoming, open your arms and say “brother we accept you for who you are.”
He added: I dont pay attention to the negativity, because I have yet to get any negativity. The only negativity I get is when a question is asked.
But I have never been confronted with anybody in the gospel world.
He then went on to name the gospel legend Rance Allen, who sung on his track Blessing Me Again, and said if he doesnt have a problem with him then his fans shouldnt either.
Snoop continued to get very sassy and laid down some real talk as he looked directly into the camera.

He directly addressed the views and asked them: What about you? Have you checked your status? Are you going to heaven? Why are you judging me? How much have you done for the lord?
Before closing his spiel with: Praise God.
