AMERICAN rapper Snoop Dogg has announced plans to become an Australian while smoking a "blunt" on camera.
During a video interview the rap superstar said he was on a quest for Australian citizenship and hinted he had already bought a house here.
In a move unlikely to win the support of immigration authorities, the controversial star then called for someone off-camera to "give me that blunt" before taking a series of drags on a short cigarette that is then passed to him.
A "blunt" is an American term used to describe a hollowed-out cigar refilled with cannabis.
Snoop Dogg's Australian dream is unlikely to be realised after authorities denied him a visa to perform in 2007.
Then prime minister John Howard raised headlines when he declared "Mr Dogg" was of "poor character".
