Snoop Shoots 'Beautiful' Video In Rio, Makes TV Plans

Rapper co-hosting first week of 'The Jimmy Kimmel Show.'

Shooting on location in Rio has its advantages, Snoop Dogg recently discovered.

The rapper enlisted a bevy of local beauties to appear in a video for "Beautiful" alongside himself and Pharrell Williams. Director Chris Robinson (Nas, Jay-Z) shot the scenic clip for the latest single from Snoop's Paid Tha Cost to Be Da Boss.

Soon after he got back to Los Angeles, the Renaissance rapper began preparing for his stint as co-host of "The Jimmy Kimmel Show." The talk show will premiere January 26 at 9 p.m., and for its first week Snoop will play Kimmel's sidekick.

On January 31, his final day as co-host, he'll do double duty as the show's musical guest, performing "Beautiful" with his backing band the Snoopadelics.
