Snoop Dogg doesn't drink like he used to. He says he's not cheap - he just doesn't want to do that to his body anymore.

He says that gets women in clubs angry, because they're hoping he'll buy whole bottles of alcohol and he's drinking water or cranberry juice instead.

Snoop says you only get one body and you have to take advantage of that. He wants to be able to compete with the new crop of rappers coming out.

Snoop says when they welcome him into their world he's not old, he's accepted.
