Snoop Dogg - Snoop Dogg Wants 'American Idol' Role

Snoop Dogg wants to be a judge on 'American Idol'.

After hearing of the millions of dollars the judges earn on the television competition, the rapper revealed he is interested in joining the panel.

During an interview this week, he said: ''I'll do 'American Idol'.''

Apparently when he was Mariah Carey is earning about $18 million a year for a one-year contract with a renewal option, Snoop Dogg looked to his manager and jokingly yelled: ''Get on it!''

The music icon is known for often swearing and generally using offensive language. However he said he would be mindful of his tone if he appeared on the family friendly entertainment programme.

Still the marijuana supporter admitted that he had a limit when it came to cleaning up his image in his personal life.

He said: ''I'll clean my act up, but I'm still Rastafari.''

The 40-year-old star announced earlier this week that he's using the name Snoop Lion for an upcoming reggae album.

He now considers himself a Rastafarian after what he calls a life-changing trip to Jamaica, and is also releasing a documentary about his rebirth.

Both the album and film are called 'Reincarnated.'

'American Idol' returns in January and singer Mariah is filling one of the two seats made available following Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler's exits last month.

Neil Schubert, spokesman for ''American Idol'' producer FremantleMedia North America, declined to comment on any speculation about potential new judges.
