ABANDON SNOOP!: On his first trip to the UK, Snoop Dogg took everything the popular press could throw at him - even the demands of the Daily Star that he be kicked out of the country. Now, he can't even take getting a gentle boffing from a bottle: Snoop flounced off the stage at Nottingham when he got hit by a plastic bottle. Apparently it was a really gentle tap from a water bottle; Snoop just yelled "that's the end of the show" and went off the stage.

His spokesperson makes it sound a wee bit like he's a disappointed headteacher:

"Snoop was hit on the side of the face with a bottle during that last track so he told the crowd the show was over. He was upset that this person had spoiled the show for everyone else."

Come on, it was a plastic bottle - you're the bloke who sings If you play me close, you're on a red beam/ Oh you got a gun so you wanna pop back?/ AK47 now nigga, stop that!/Cement shoes, now I'm on the move/You're family's crying, now you on the news /They can't find you, and now they miss you /Must I remind you I'm only here to twist you / Pistol whip you, dip you then flip you /Then dance to this motherfucking music we crip to. And yet Mr. Pistolwhip-AK47 runs off stage in tears when he gets a little bonk from a Volvic bottle?

Shoot em up, shoot em up bang bang/ It's all fair in tha gang bang. All fair except a pop bottle, of course.

Run, Snoop... it's a gang...
