According to Snoop Lion, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are over -- VIDEO

The gods of love giveth (maybe), and the gods of love taketh away (also maybe).

Just when we were finally recovering from the news of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s potential reunion, Snoop Lion has rocked our worlds by insinuating that professional twerker Miley Cyrus and her fiance Liam Hemsworth are officially kaput.

The name-changing rapper recently collaborated with Cyrus on “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,” a single Snoop says is about “change, turnaround, and you know, just going through things.” What kind of things, specifically? “I can’t speak for her, you know what I’m saying, but I know that she has a relationship that no longer exists,” he told HuffPost Live yesterday. “I know she’s probably in a transformation change with her life, her music [and] her career.”

Snoop Lion wants you to 'un-Scrooge' yourself

No one knows Dickens quite like Snoop Dogg… er… Lion.

In partnership with Adidas, the rapper-turned-Rastafarian has graced us with a stirring animated rendition of A Christmas Carol. The video, illustrated by Beavis and Butthead‘s J.J. Sedelmaier, tells the story of Ebenezer Snoop, a former gadabout who’s lost his holiday mojo. Dickens’ notorious Christmas ghosts — portrayed here, somewhat inexplicably, by sports greats Stan Smith, David Beckham, and Derek Rose — take Snoop to parties throughout time and show him the error of his ways. Rap puns abound (“Bah! Humbizzle!”) and the malt liquor flows like eggnog – imagine the Christmas fable by way of Don’t Be a Menace and you’ll get the idea. And, you may notice, the runtime is exactly 4:20. Coincidence? I think not.

Snoop Lion endorses Obama

First let’s clear the air: Snoop Dogg now goes by Snoop Lion.  His self-reinvention, the result of his recent adoption of Rastafari and reggae music, is chronicled in the appropriately titled documentary Reincarnation, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.  At the press conference for that film, the reborn rapper behind “Gin and Juice” took the opportunity to voice his eloquent support for President Obama.

“Let me begin, Obama for four more years, man,” Snoop said. “Bush f—-d up for eight years, so, I mean, you gotta at least give [Obama] eight years. He cleaned half the s–t up in four years, realistically. It ain’t like y’all gave him a clean house. Y’all gave him a house where the TV didn’t work, the toilet was stuffed up – everything was wrong with the house.”

The rest of Snoop’s enlightened political commentary touched on Osama bin Laden–”He knocked down our most hated, the most wanted, the one who had our terror on orange or red or whatever color it was on – he went and found him, the one Bush couldn’t seem to find, the one who seemed to fly away in the dead of night and all that”–and Bill Clinton’s speech at the DNC–”You heard what Clinton said. You loved Clinton, didn’t you?”

Snoops remarks present a stark contrast to Nicki Minaj’s momentous support for Mitt Romney.  But President Obama, for his part, doesn’t really care about Nicki’s statement, and odds are he respond to this endorsement from Snoop.
