Snoop Dogg Eased Lennox's Security Fears

Annie Lennox was worried about the possibility of a terrorist attack before she performed at the London leg of the Live 8 concerts on Saturday (02JUL05) - until she saw rapper Snoop Dogg's impressive collection of bodyguards.

The superstar line up, including Sir Paul McCartney, U2 and Madonna, was protected by tight security measures - but the DROP IT LIKE IT'S HOT star still felt the need to bring his own protection entourage.

And Lennox's apprehensions quickly evaporated when she saw the size of Snoop's bodyguards.

Lennox says, "The concert billing was so luminary. Al-Qaeda clearly missed a golden opportunity. Never before has there been such a concentration of living legends sharing the same bill.

"Mind you, if there had been any seizure attempts, I'm sure that Snoop Dogg's body guards would have sorted it out... all six giants of them."
