Diddy reveals his secret to macking • 12.21.08
(I can’t believe I just used the word “hotties.” Actually I can, otherwise I would have deleted it. Then again, maybe I didn’t delete it because I was lazy. But why would I continue to type if I was lazy?)
Anywho, Diddy revealed to Extra TV how he’s able to charm the ladies.
“The thing that works for me is, ‘What’s your name?'” he said.
I tried that line on a girl at the gym last week, it didn’t work for me. But the fact that I was working out while wearing shorts and black dress socks probably had a lot to do with that.

Diddy wants to play James Bond • 12.02.08
Diddy never ceases to amaze me.
Now that he’s landed a small role on CSI: Miami, the Mount Vernon raised mogul makes the case to the world why he should succeed Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.
“This is my audition tape,” he said. “…I feel like I am suited to be the next James Bond. We’ve had a black president, now it’s time for a black Bond.”
About 1:45 into the video, Diddy presents a short film he produced for his new fragrance I Am King and cites it as evidence he has what it takes to play the famous role of 007.

Diddy said he feels like MLK • 11.04.08
Many of you still may not understand my obsession with Diddy. Hopefully his interview with the AP today will change that.
After voting for Barack Obama today, Diddy exclaimed “I felt like my vote was the vote that put him into office. It was down to one vote, and that was going to be my vote.”
Still not convinced? Read what he said next:
“I’m not trying to be dramatic, but I just felt like, Martin Luther King, and I felt the whole civil rights movement, I felt all that energy.”
I rest my case.

Diddy wants Obama for his “berfday” • 10.28.08
In the latest installment of Diddy TV, the Mount Vernon raised mogul’s official video blog, Diddy reminds voters that not only is Nov. 4 election day, but its also his birthday.
And the best present for him, he said, is a black president.
Helping him drive that point in the video are his twin daughters. Enjoy.

Diddy and Denzel may team up for movie • 10.22.08
Mount Vernon is in the house.
Diddy is reportedly in talks with studio execs to star in a biographical film about old school rapper Terry “T La Rock” Keaton. Denzel Washington is expected to direct the film.
T La Rock is best known for his 1984 hit “It’s Yours,” which helped pave the way for the hip-hop movement in the 1980s. In 1994, he suffered a tramautic brain injury after trying to breakÂ up a fight in the Bronx.
In other Diddy news, the rap mogul was ticketed in Miami last week for blaring the music in his car too loud. You can ask him to turn down the volume, but I thought I told you that he won’t stop, thought I told you that he won’t stop.

Diddy pays homage to Sinatra in new ad • 10.14.08
I was flipping through the channels last night and came across Diddy’s new ad for his vodka Ciroc.
In the ad, Diddy can be seen in fancy garb at a house party among
paid extras friends dancing to Frank Sinatra’s classic tune “Come Fly with Me.”
Diddy told the AP he predicts that because of the economy, less people will be going to bars and party at home instead.
We all know that Diddy is quite the doyen on economics as he eloquently pointed out a few weeks ago that “gas prices are too muthaf—n high.”

Heavy D’s first album “Living Large” is one of the first cassettes (ewww, remember those?) that I ever bought as a child.
Now I can add his new album “Vibes,” his first major studio recording since 1999, to my collection.
Heavy D is no question a hiphop legend and grew up in Mount Vernon. He gives props to the city in his 1987 song “Money earnin’ Mount Vernon.”
On “Vibes,” Heavy has D-viated from his hip hop sound to take up reggae music, which is more true to his family’s Jamaican roots. I gotta say, I really love what I’m hearing.
You can sample a few tracks on his MySpace.

Phew! Diddy flying his private jet again • 09.12.08
We reported earlier that Diddy was flying commercial airlines because gas prices to him were “too (mutha effin’) high.”
Well, Diddy has put all our worries to rest by letting us know that he is back flying his private jet again thanks to “all my Saudi Arabian brothers and sisters” lowering the prices again.
I think his video blogs are slowly becoming my favorite things to watch on the internet.

Diddy wants to play hockey with Sarah Palin • 09.07.08
Last week, we reported Diddy posted a video about John McCain’s decision to nominate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, asking if there are there even black people in Alaska.
Well, after Palin gave a headline making speech at the Republican National Convention, the rapper with Mount Vernon ties apologized for his remarks with another video that makes him sound just as hilarious.
“You gave a speech that, basically shut me the f*%k up for the whole time you were speaking,” he said about Palin. “It came across extremely strong, extremely charismaticâ€”somebody I would wanna play hockey with.”

Diddy: ‘McCain is Buggin’ the F*** Out’ • 09.02.08
After John McCain surprised everyone with his announcement that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin would be his running mate, Diddy posted a video in response.
“Alaska? Alaska! Alaska, come on man. I donâ€™t even know if there are any black people in Alaska,” he said.
Congrats Diddy, on alienating around 20,000 people in the state of Alaska.
I wonder what Mase has to say about it.

Diddy Force One is grounded indefinitely, thanks to gas prices that are putting even the blingiest of celebs on notice.
Sean “Diddy” Combs isn’t feelin’ the quarter-million-dollar round trips he’d been making on his private jet. So he opted instead to be Something Special in the Air, flying American Airlines with the people. Quoth the Diddy:
“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.”
