Snoop Dogg has praised collaborator Rita Ora, telling MTV News UK that the R.I.P. singer is a "special lady."
Snoop was joined by Ora for a rendition of their collaboration Torn Apart at the Yahoo! Wireless Festival last night (July 12), with the rapper telling us: "It was awesome working with Rita, you know to be able to have a record with her, a video and to be able to perform live on stage, there was so much great energy in the air.
"I love Rita Ora, she's a special lady", when asked by our very own Laura Whitmore if he thought Rita - who is dating Scottish DJ Calvin Harris was hot - Snoop replied: "In a real way."
The Doggfather also went on to reveal that he's a fan of UK rapper Dizzee Rascal, while also promising a return to Wireless next year.
Snoop said: "I will definitely make a grand appearance again and return to the stage and grace you all with my presence once more.
"I had a great time the people really gave me a lot of love, treated me with hospitality so I appreciate the love. It was royal treatment for a royal kind guy."
