Snoop Dogg talks about being a strict dad on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Rapper Snoop Dogg (real name Calvin Broadus), 36, appeared alongside his daughter, Cori, 8, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last Tuesday. When Ellen asked Cori if Snoop was a strict father, Cori responded that he wasn’t. Snoop them said:

You say I’m not strict. Tell Ellen how old you have to be before you can have a boyfriend.

Cori quickly answered ‘Seventy-seven.’

Snoop spends his free time coaching some of his children in a little-league football team five days a week and four months out of the year. On Monday, his team won its league’s Super Bowl. Snoop commented:

I’m so excited, I’m finally able to breathe again. That’s my love, that’s my job. That’s my No.1 excitement is coaching those kids on the football field.

He explained that tough love is necessary in order to rise to the top. He believes in setting goals and making the kids follow through in pursuit of them. He explained:

I’m  hard. I cuss ’em out. But my philosophy is, I pick on them, and then I pick them up. That’s what I do, to let them know that I expect more out of them, because they’re better than that.

Snoop also sees how he can turn some of his personal bad experiences into a positive light for his children. He said:

I’m like the best example for them to show them how someone can come out of a negative background and create a positive avenue for themselves.

Besides daughter Cori, Snoop Dogg and his wife Shante Taylor Broadus have two sons, Cordell, 10, and Corde, 13.
