Snoop Dogg & Martha Stewart Talk New Show, 'Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Party Challenge'

The unlikeliest of duos are back with their 3rd season, a show name with a battle-like theme and a bunch of new guests and surprises. 

On the surface, you’d never expect Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg to come together in any form. Their worlds couldn’t be further apart: Martha — coming from a Polish, middle-class, New Jersey-residing family — who would babysit the children of Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra as a kid and Snoop hailing from Long Beach, Calif. where he’d join the Rollin’ 20’s before becoming a rap icon. However, the duo is now heading into the third season of their Emmy Award-nominated VH1 show.

Season 3 of their hit show boasts a star-studded lineup of guests from Yvonne Orji to Matthew McConaughey. With some big changes in store, the show now has a new name and format: Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Party Challenge. Instead of the cooking-themed talk show we’ve grown accustomed to, the pair will bring the competition to their guests as they battle for kitchen supremacy.

In between shooting promos for the new, spin-off season, VIBE sat down with the two in Los Angeles to discuss everything from their chemistry to Martha being a true OG to Snoop’s aspirations of an EGOT.

“I haven’t been to your house yet,” Martha quips when asked about how they spend time together off-camera. “I’ve been to your compound.” Snoop’s home away from home, The Compound, is everything you’d imagine the adult playground of a rap superstar to be. Equipped with a full recording studio and space for filming his own content, Snoop’s compound is a staple in Los Angeles for those who are able to visit.

As Martha and Snoop wax poetic and play off each other akin to a verse from Jadakiss and Styles P, Snoop flips a question back at us. “How does hip-hop perceive Martha Stewart?” Snoop asks as he is excited for Martha to hear how she is perceived and welcomed. “This is hip-hop, Martha. I can tell you but it ain’t nothing like hearing it from Hip Hop up close and personal.”

With Martha by his side, Snoop is now an Emmy-nominated talent. He’s amassed 13 Grammy nominations and with his first play(Redemption of a Dogg) under his belt, could the D-O-double-G have aspirations of the elusive EGOT status? “I don’t really trip off of awards,” Snoop says. “It used to be a time when I wanted awards and I didn’t get them and that kind of made me upset. So I stopped focusing on the aspects of accolades and just [start] doing it for the spirit of it all. If it happens to fall in my lap, I’ll take it on the chin and keep it moving.”

Other guests for Season 3 include Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Rogen, Tiffany Haddish, Method Man, Kandi Burruss, Regina Hall, Yvonne Orji, and more.

Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Party Challenge returns to your screen on Wednesday, April 3rd at 10 pm ET on VH1. Watch our full interview above.

FX's ‘Pose’ Unveils Gripping Season 2 Trailer

Pose fans’ patience will be alleviated with the second season's premiere next month. To get viewers ready, FX debuted its 45-second trailer on Thursday (May 23), packed with an array of moving storylines.

Set in New York City’s ‘90s time period, the characters will explore life-altering changes in their careers and health. For Blanca, the status of her HIV-positive diagnosis will take precedence as the House of Evangelista begins to navigate a newfound arena of prominence in the ballroom scene.

In an interview with Billboard, producer and activist Janet Mock dished on what to expect for the upcoming season. "There's a rule in the writers' room that we do not talk about what we're going to do, but I think that it's really going deeper every episode,” Mock said. “As viewers kind of notice, we tend to focus in on a character that we may not have known as much before, right? For example, this week will really be central around Lil Papi’s character, his relationship with Blanca and things [that] have been alluded about throughout the season. There will be some of the origins stories of characters that we may not have heard as much from before, but whom people of course love because they are either on Team Abundance or Team Evangelista.”

Ahead of its June 11 return on FX (10 p.m. EST), watch the trailer above.

Kanye West To David Letterman: Liberals Are Bullying Donald Trump Supporters

Ahead of David Letterman’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction return to Netflix (May 31), details about the veteran interviewer’s upcoming conversation with Kanye West has hit the Internet. According to The Daily Beast, the pair discuss mental health, Drake fallout, and his views on Donald Trump.

In 2018, West used various platforms from TMZ to his personal Twitter account to express his controversial and political standing as it relates to his support of Trump. While he caught flack for it, West told Letterman that everyone should have the right to stand tall in their beliefs.

“This is like my thing with Trump—we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” he said. The father-of-four also admitted that he’s “never voted in my life,” and that those who cast a ballot for Trump were “treated like enemies of America because that’s what they felt.” He added that “Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!”

The Daily Beast also reported on West’s address of mental health. Here, he pinpointed how the masses interpreted his statements, inadvertently referring to his viral interview on TMZ. “When you’re bipolar, you have the potential to ramp up and it can take you to a point where you start acting erratic, as TMZ would put it,” he said. West continued to unpack his views on mental health, saying, “If you guys want these crazy ideas and these crazy stages and this crazy music and this crazy way of thinking, there’s a chance it might come from a crazy person."

In an interview with Willie Geist of “Sunday Today,” Letterman said he didn’t know what to expect ahead of his sit-down with the Ye rapper. “I was frightened honestly because I had only met him a couple of times on the show, and I knew that depending on the day, you weren’t quite sure which path you were going to be on,” he said.
