SNOOP DOGG was spotted enjoying a cheeky puff of his joint moments before performing at the Super Bowl half-time show.
Production cameras zoomed in on the legendary musician while he was backstage relaxing in the best way he knows how.

And it worked a treat as the rapper put on a show to remember alongside Dr Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, and Eminem.
Recreational marijuana is legal in California but NFL rules ban it from being smoked, which is perhaps why Snoop Dogg did not light up on stage as he often does.
The 50-year-old star is no stranger to smoking in controversial settings having blazed in a bathroom at the White House a few years ago.
Understandably, Snoop Dogg’s antics were much discussed on Twitter with the video of him smoking being viewed more than five million times so far.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Snoop has a free pass to smoke weed anywhere in the world. Literally anywhere.”
Another added, tongue-in-cheek: “Great, now everyone knows he smokes weed. Nice job guys.”

A third commented: “Gotta get that medicine in so the arthritis doesn’t act up mid-show.”
Meanwhile, fellow rapper Kanye West also caused controversy at the Super Bowl by wearing a full mask over his face.
Piers Morgan tore into Kanye after the event, branding him ‘ridiculous’ for his antics during the LA Rams’ historic win.
