As far as rap stars go, there aren’t many who have reached the heights of Snoop Dogg. From the release of his industry-changing Doggystyle album to collaborations with some of the biggest names in the music business, Snoop has seen and experienced it all. In #5, Snoop talks exclusively to Rio about his musical inspirations, what made Doggystyle such a classic album, why he enjoys "soccer" and what he loves about the UK.
Continuing the music theme, Rio also interviews multi-award winning pop princess Pixie Lott. Answering questions from #5 readers, Pixie discusses how she juggled her early music career with school and exams (still managing to get As!) and reveals who she’d most like to collaborate with and how she relaxes.
#5 wouldn’t be #5 without the football, and providing the 'silks' for this issue's 'Players Lounge' is Rio’s Reds team-mate Nani. #5‘s Jeremy Lynch speaks with the United winger and also tries to show him a few tricks or two. However, the Portuguese star has other ideas and demonstrates why he’s one of the most exciting players in the world today.
The latest issue also includes gravity-defying tricks from BMX maestro Danny MacAskill, a chat with the new king of men's tailoring Adrien Sauvage, must-enter competitions and much much more.
