AMP Music Minute: Snoop Dogg Rocks Price Is Right, Timberlake Pegged for Elton John Biopic And Fergie Talks Starting a Family

[photogallerylink id=135642 align=left]Snoop D-O-Double-G is not only a great speller and rapper but also has a knack for knowing the prices of things, which is why his stint on The Price Is Right‘s Celebrity Week he did amazing.

Playing for his own non-profit, the Snoop Dogg Youth Football League, the Long Beach native pulled in over $72,000 for his organization.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Snoop Dogg[/lastfm] said he picked up the game when he was a kid and would play hooky, pretending to be sick and would just watch the show all day. Well, how about that?

In addition to racking up mad Benjis on the show, Snoop also took turns co-hosting the show with Drew Carey and even spit a freestyle for all the folks at home and in studio. The California rapper also plugged his upcoming appearance at the New Orleans Voodoo Music Festival.

It certainly looks like Snoop has a career in TV hosting if he gets tired or too old for the rap game. We would be watching!

Check the highlights below!

[photogallerylink id=126568 align=right][lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justin Timberlake[/lastfm] has been drifting further and further away from music almost everyday because it seems like everyone wants him in their movies. Who can blame them? But still we miss that whole bringing “SexyBack” thing that Justin did so well.

The latest celeb who has Justin at the top of his “Play Me In a Movie” list is living legend and songwriter,[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Elton John[/lastfm]. “I’ve got a wish list of people,” Elton told the paper. “No. 1 on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of ‘Rocket Man’ and was superb.”

Well that’s a good point, but what about the music? It’s fair to say that a Elton John biopic will definitely be all about the music, but John has a more theatrical view in mind, think “Moulin Rouge.”

“It’s going to be a surreal look at my life, and not just a factual look at my life,” he said. “I just don’t want it to be a normal biopic because my life hasn’t been like that.

“And it only goes up to when I go into rehab in 1990. It starts with me going into rehab and ends when I come out.

Timberlake hasn’t commented on whether or not he’s got the role for sure, but the script is in the works and Elton is all about follow through.

Especially at this time in his life when he’s realized that his days of Pop radio are over, but admits that gives him more freedom. “As Elton John, my days on pop radio are over, and I know that and I accept it and I’m not unhappy about it,” John said. “It’s a different time of my life now, and it gives me the freedom to do whatever kind of music I want to do.”

Hollywood has been all abuzz with baby fever lately. From [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyonce[/lastfm] to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm] people just keep asking the “baby” question and latest on the chopping block is [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Black Eyed Peas [/lastfm]leading lady,[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Fergie[/lastfm]. She spent some time talking to People Magazine who got the scoop on her plans to start a family.

When the magazine inquired about whether or not the 36-year-old singer was ready to have kids she coyly responded, “Maybe, who knows? We’ll see.”

Instead, the BEP singer wants to use her new free time to spend more time with husband of nearly three years actor Josh Duhamel.

[photogallerylink id=134307 align=left]”I’m going where the day takes me – having days where I have no schedule. That’s going to be nice and refreshing for me… a definite change,” she said. “I’m looking forward to being home and not having to sleep in a different city or country every night.”

Movie nights are going to have a whole new meaning at the Ferguson-Duhamel house and for that we are very excited for Fergs! After years of being on the road, this is some much needed and well-deserved R&R.

“Glamorous” Fergie
