In the pantheon of odd couples, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg may be the most unexpected to outside viewers. But the lifestyle doyenne insists that her friendship with the rap icon “is a natural fit.

I respect him immensely.” In that light, it makes a lot of sense that she would team up with the artist formerly known as Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. on a new cooking show that combines the duo’s contrasting styles to pop-culture perfection.
