Snoop Dogg Admits He ‘Fainted’ When He First Met Pam Grier
During a recent appearance on The Jennifer Hudson Show, the iconic West Coast MC revealed how his initial encounter with the movie star left him feeling weak in the knees.
“We was doing a movie, Bones, right? And this is young Snoop. I’m young at the time, right?” he explained to J-Hud. “They tell me I got the role with Pam Grier. So, I’m like, ‘Oh alright, I got Pam Grier, that’s a…’ he added before breaking into a little dance.
“Catch the flight from Frisco to Vancouver. So, when I get to Frisco I’m sitting down and Pam Grier walk up and just sit right next to me and started talking to me.”
When questioned about his reaction, Snoop confessed to fainting. “My heart was beating fast, Jen,” he chuckled. “Jen, my heart was beating fast (da, da, da, da). So, I’m like, ‘I hear what you’re saying, Pam. Give me a minute.’ I go to the bathroom and faint.
“I fainted. I’m laying on the ground. My security come in they like ‘Get off this nasty floor, man. What is you doing?’ I’m like, I looked up I said: ‘Cuz, I just met Pam Grier.”
After pulling himself together, Snoop Dogg shared that he returned to his seat beside Grier, but found it difficult to maintain eye contact with her for the remainder of the flight. “She broke me down. She gave me all the information that I needed as far as to like lose that. She gave me information on how to be a better actor, a better person, and how to receive people like this who you are infatuated with.
“So, I thanked her for that and I believe I became a better actor after that. So, Pam, I love you for that. And I appreciate you,” he concluded.

The film, which dropped in 2001, follows the story of Jimmy Bones (portrayed by Snoop Dogg), who, two decades after his murder, returns as a vengeful ghost seeking retribution against his killers and seeking to restore order to his community.
Though, this was not the first time Grier starred in a Snoop-led project. In 1993, the actor appeared as her popularized character Foxy Brown, a voluptuous vigilante, in the music video for his “Doggy Dogg World” single.
The rapper has been on somewhat of a streak in expressing his admiration for others as of late. In a new interview with The Sunday Times, Snoop, who previously called former president Donald Trump “racist,” appeared to change his tune.
“Donald Trump? He ain’t done nothing wrong to me. He has done only great things for me,” he said of the controversial politician and reality star, backpedaling on his former comment.

Snoop went on to praise Trump for pardoning Death Row Records co-founder Michael “Harry-O” Harris, who spent 30 years behind bars on an attempted murder charge and drug offenses.
“He pardoned Michael Harris. So I have nothing but love and respect for Donald Trump,” he added.
Snoop Dogg had previously been a vocal critic of Trump who defeated Hilary Clinton in the 2016 election before losing four years later to Joe Biden.
