Diddy’s first born Justin Combs was all smiles with his dad Diddy and mom Misa as he graduated with honors with a 3.7 gpa from a private highschool. Receiving many awards for Football, he was always awarded a full ride to UCLA to play football for the school. While this is all great and he does deserve it. Many folks were upset that Justin receive a scholarship since his dad is worth $500 millions dollars and it should be given to the less fortunate. UCLA was quick to respond saying there are many different scholarships and its just not based on the low income but also Merit based:
“There’s a misconception out there that somehow athletic scholarships would take away money from low-income students who need need-based aid,” school spokesman Ricardo Vazquez said. “That’s not the case. Athletic scholarships are awarded strictly on the basis of athletic and academic ability.”
Justin and his mom also took their twitter accounts to justify the situation in that whatever the outcome is will be but he did earn it the right way.
Regardless what the circumstances are, I put that work in!!!! PERIOD. Regardless of what you do in life every1 is gonna have their own opinion. Stay focused, keep that tunnel vision & never 4get why u started.
My Son is his own man. He will earn his own way through life. I’m so proud of my baby ♥ it starts now! He is exactly the young man I raised him to be ☺ #independent #hardworking #intelligent
Check out the video response on the situation as well as some pictures from his graduation party which includes his grandparents from both sides of the family, his godmother Mary J.Blige, his sister seen in the picture with Diddy and even Babs from MTB??
Mary J Blige is preparing to release her 12th album on September 20th. The album is titled My Life II which is the follow up to her 1994 classic album My Life. Some tracks that were featured of the My Life album was Be Happy, You Bring Me Joy and Mary Jane (All Night Long). My Life II will continue the story and journey of her life thus far with producers like Swizz Beatz, Kanye West and even Stargate assisting to the album. Someone To Love Me is her first single off the new album and brought in fellow friend Diddy and Lil Wayne for the track.
The video was directed by Colin Tilley who recently directed a few of Diddy-Dirty Money videos. Check it out below. Continue Reading…
Diddy and his group Dirty Money along with Skylar Grey performed on the American Idol results show Thursday Night. Diddy performed Coming Home for the millions watching including his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez. I wonder how he felt about that??
Sidenote: According to Forbes Diddy was chosen the wealthiest in Hip Hop cashing in at $475million followed by Jay-Z with $450 million. 50 Cent continues to trail far behind with only $100 tying with CEO Birdman. I guess Birdman do have “baby money”. #Justsaying
Diddy is surely a family man as he was spotted out on a holiday vacation with all three of his sons Quincy, Justin, and Christian. He decided to hit up the island St. Barts for some beach sun, water time, and of course “running” with the boys.
Seems like Diddy chose Kim Porter yet again for another one of his getaways. He brought along his two twin daughters not seen inthe pics to celebrate their 4th birthdays and His son Christian as well. Kim is in great shape for someone to have like 4 kids. I am a little shocked she smokes the cigs though… I guess it was a habit she wasn’t able to shake during her modeling days.
Diddy needs to just wife her up already… like permanently!
Seems like the economy is hitting celebs too! as Diddy is forced to close his flagship store in NYC.
Diddy will be closing his flagship Sean John clothing store this December. The 3500 square foot store is being closed due to slow sales. However, Sean John is reportedly looking to open other store locations in New York and LA. The 5th Avenue location was the first Sean John store to open in 2004. Earlier this year, Diddy signed a deal with Macy’s to carry his brand exclusively.
Hmm.. I think he should slow down on opening another Sean John store in New York, maybe LA will work out better.
On twitter the other day, Tyrese wanted to address an issue that was on his mind. On the first episode of LaLa’s Full Court Wedding, Tyrese cautioned LaLa about hanging out with some of her single friends now that she’s getting married. He took some of his thoughts of friendship and, being a “supportive” friend to Twitter.
