SYDNEY, Australia (AP) — Snoop Dogg has been refused entry into Australia because of his extensive criminal record, the immigration minister said Thursday, the second time this year the rapper has been barred from entering another country.
Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr., was due to fly into Sydney this week to co-host the MTV Australia Video Music Awards.

Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said Snoop Dogg's visa was canceled because he had failed to pass the country's strict character test, which takes criminal convictions into account.

"He doesn't seem the sort of bloke we want in this country," Andrews told Sydney's Macquarie Radio.

Guess if he keeps his act up, he will be touring the US exclusively pretty soon...

Well, only makes sense.

Allowing a KNOWN drug user into your country just doesn't make sense . . . . well done Australia.

Come on. With all due respect they should have told him this first. Im not saying I like the man, but give him another chance. Everyone changes.

The only thing he changes is the location of his next arrest.

Changes to what? He was arrested in Sweden not that long ago for drug possession. I don't think he's going the line of the honest man any time soon.

Um. Why? The rules are the same in many countries, if you think you might be turned away, then contact the embassy or consulate of the country being visited beforehand to check. It's not down to Australia to tell him in advance. The only reason some might think he should get in is because he's famous. An "ordinary" person with a record like his wouldn't be granted entry, so why should he?

Good. Celeberty shouldn't trump over a criminal record as to access to a country. Australia, keep up your standards, but also enforce them evenly.

While I have a number of bones to pick with Australian immigration policies I have no problem with this. Celebrities should not get special treatment. Simple as that. For the record I am a Snoop fan.

Good job Australia!

MCOflyer:
I am all in favor of giving someone a 'chance' if they want to change. Instead this is a man that has glamorized the thug/gangster lifestyle and has worn the criminal lifestyle on his sleeves.
Therefore, I have no sympathy for him being rejected from Australia.

Snoop Fan here... but I do agree that since anyone else with his sorta record would've probably been met with a brick wall to entry, the same should befall him.

Well done Australia.
