Rapper Snoop Dogg has struck up an unlikely friendship with Keane singer TOM CHAPLIN. The two acts had adjoining dressing rooms at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) on Thursday (02NOV06), and the GIN AND JUICE star decided to invite the British rockers to his after-show party after being blown away by their performance at the Copenhagen show. A source says the SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW hitmakers, who enjoyed full VIP treatment at the bash, were "flattered" to attend. A spokeswoman for Chaplin, who checked into London rehabilitation clinic The Priory for alcohol and drug abuse in August (06), insisted he only drank lemonade at the party, saying, "Tom is still on the wagon and left the party at 1am."
