Rapper Snoop Dogg was left disappointed after his spectacular entry to the MTV Europe Music Awards on Thursday (1Nov07) was axed at the last minute. The hip-hop star - who was hosting the ceremony - was expecting to be chauffeured onstage by British motorsports star Lewis Hamilton in a sparkling limousine. But Hamilton pulled out of the stunt in Munich, Germany, because a sponsorship deal with Mercedes prevents him from driving any other vehicle. A source tells British newspaper the Sun, "Snoop had it all worked out. Lewis was going to be the ultimate chauffeur. Snoop has taken a real interest in Lewis' incredible story over the last year and wanted him to have a starring role at the bash. The plan went through only to be knocked back because of the car."
