Snoop wants to judge American Idol

Snoop Dogg has put himself forward to join the judging panel of American Idol.

Judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez announced their departure at the end of last season and Randy Jackson is reported to be taking on a "mentoring role".

Snoop said in an interview this week: "I'll do American Idol."

Mariah Carey has already been announced as one of the new judges when the new series of the show begins in January. When told that Mariah is earning about 18 million dollars a year for a one-year contract with a renewal option, Snoop looked to his manager and jokingly yelled: "Get on it!"

Neil Schubert, spokesman for American Idol producer FremantleMedia North America, declined to comment on any speculation about potential new judges.

Taping on episodes that include the judges doesn't start until the autumn, so the show has time to continue its search.

Snoop, 40, announced earlier this week that he's using the name Snoop Lion for an upcoming reggae album. He now considers himself a Rastafarian after what he calls a life-changing trip to Jamaica, and he is releasing a documentary about his rebirth. Both the album and film are called Reincarnated.

Given American Idol's family-friendly focus, Snoop - known for his colourful language and gangsta raps - said he would be mindful of his tone. But the ardent marijuana supporter seemed to have a limit regarding his beloved (and illegal) herb. "I'll clean my act up, but I'm still Rastafari", he said.

Nick Jonas and Pharrel Williams are rumoured to be in talks to join the panel.
