In a recent episode of SiriusXM's Andy Cohen Live, iconic rapper Snoop Dogg shared a fascinating anecdote about his interactions with the late pop legend Michael Jackson, revealing a lighter side of their relationship that many fans might not have known about.
Snoop Dogg, a prominent figure in the music industry, reminisced about his unique bond with Jackson, describing their relationship as akin to family. "Me and Mike were family. His family and my family love each other. We have a record that never came out together.
We never had issues,” he explained, highlighting a mutual respect and affection that transcended their public personas. The conversation took an amusing turn when Snoop recounted a memorable incident that took place at an event organized by fashion designers Ed Hardy and Christian Audigier.
The event planners, in a decision that would lead to a humorous situation, arranged for Snoop Dogg and Michael Jackson to have adjacent dressing rooms.

Snoop, known for his laid-back and often irreverent attitude, narrated the story with his characteristic flair.
“He had Michael Jackson perform, Snoop Dogg perform, but where he messed up, he put the Michael Jackson dressing room right next to Snoop Dogg, so Snoop Dogg is there doing this,” he said, mimicking smoking a joint.
As the story goes, the proximity of their dressing rooms led to an unexpected interaction. “Mm-hmm, and they're like, ‘You know, Michael Jackson's dressing room is next door.’ I'm like, ‘No it ain't.’ They like, ‘Yeah, there,’ so I'm like, ‘Hold on.
Open the door.’” It was at this moment that the usually unflappable King of Pop found himself in a cloud of smoke, courtesy of his neighbor. Snoop, impersonating Jackson in a soft, high-pitched voice, recalled Jackson's reaction: ''Yeah.
He's right there looking at me. He said, ‘Snoop, don't do that.’” This light-hearted story not only showcases the human side of these larger-than-life celebrities but also provides a rare glimpse into their off-stage interactions.
Snoop's recounting of this incident reveals the unexpected and often humorous moments that can occur when two world-renowned artists cross paths, each bringing their unique personalities and lifestyles into the mix.
