Snoop to the Rescue

American Idol Season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino was back onstage just weeks after a suicide attempt. It seems that Snoop Dogg, like time, heals all wounds.

Snoop was headlining the Fantasy Football Superdraft tailgate party at the Palms pool on Aug. 27 when Barrino joined him onstage. That night at Rain, Snoop returned the favor as she performed songs from her newly released third album, Back to Me—including a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

She told fans, “They thought I was finished. They thought I was done. I would never, ever stop. I don’t care what no one says.”
