Can stop, will stop: Gas prices ground Diddy’s private jet

Diddy Force One is grounded indefinitely, thanks to gas prices that are putting even the blingiest of celebs on notice.

“Gas prices are too m—–f—-n’ high.”

Looks like the Mount Vernon-raised rapper is keepin’ it real. As long as “it” fits into one carry-on and one stow-away.

This all reminds me of my favorite Weekend Update line from “Saturday Night Live” last year, delivered perfectly by anchor Seth Meyers: “(If) gas gets any more expensive, rappers will start to drink it.”
