To be completely honest, a Snoop Dogg movie doesn't seem farfetched given how much the legendary rapper has been able to accomplish throughout his career in the entertainment industry. Although we may not see Snoop's life story depicted in multiple films, at least one of the major moments in his life could be covered in a biopic. On Monday, he spoke with the Associated Press about whether or not there is an actor out there that can really encapsulate the Doggfather's persona on the big screen.

"There's so many dope actors that have graced the screen and there's so many dope actors that have yet to grace the screen, Snoop tells the AP. " I don't know who could play me. It would have to be someone who could win me over."

He further goes on to say that an actor like Jamie Foxx who has a great range of comedy and drama acting credits—and was able to portray Ray Charles— could be a good fit.

"When I think of someone playing you, I think of how Jamie Foxx played Ray," he said. "That was like spot on. So I would have to find me a Jamie Foxx or someone that could actually become Snoop Dogg on screen and give me all of that element. And I don't know if that person is out there or has yet to be discovered. But when I get to that point, I'ma find him."

It is quite evident that Snoop is on the lookout for someone who can portray his likeness, even if it is somebody who isn't that prominent in Hollywood. When it comes to seeing when the biopic could come to fruition, that is still up in the air. In 2018, Snoop did tease working with Lee Daniels and Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler to develop his idea for a movie, further exploring the potential to flesh out his life in a miniseries. Should this happen, it could prove to be a very interesting show for fans.

As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease, many are facing the anxiety of re-entering into society. Over the last year, we've been obligated to remain asocial, and as a result, many of us (myself included) are finding human interaction painfully awkward.

For as long as I can remember, making friends was never a difficult feat to accomplish. To my friends and family, I've always been the most outgoing and bubbly person in the room. While that remains to be true, lately I've found social interactions to be challenging and somewhat strained. Thankfully, now that I'm fully vaccinated, I've been venturing into the real world more frequently.

Misogyny is a destructive knotweed among queer men

Progress for the LGBT+ community isn't on the cards until we address the virulent creeper in the room.

When it comes to gay and bi men's mental health, one of the biggest stumbling blocks we face is internalised homophobia and biphobia – likely from an early adoption of toxic behaviours picked up in the playground and carried on into adulthood.

Alexander Leon stated on Twitter recently that 'Queer people don't grow up as ourselves, we grow up playing a version of ourselves that sacrifices authenticity to minimise humiliation and prejudice. The massive task of our adult lives is to unpick which parts of ourselves are truly us and which parts we've created to protect us."
