Rappers 50 CENT and Snoop Dogg stopped the traffic in New York last night (28AUG03) at the MTV Video Music Awards when they turned up in style with girls on leashes and celebrity girlfriends.

50 CENT confirmed reports he's dating sexy actress Vivica A Fox by arriving hand-in-hand with her, dressed up like a gent.

The rapper, who's famous for wearing vests and jeans, showed up in a pin-striped suit, a silver fedora and matching tie.

The smart look didn't last long - 50 Cent took to the stage to celebrate pal Eminem's Best Movie Video award dressed down in a black G-UNIT T-shirt and jeans.

He later changed again to an all-white outfit and black fedora for a performance of hit single P.I.M.P, and a final time into a green G-Unit T-shirt.

His P.I.M.P collaborator SNOOP DOGG dressed down but still impressed by arriving with two scantily-clad models wearing dog collars and leashes.
