Diddy’s “Paris Is Burning” Trailer: Materialism In Black And White

Watch Video
Diddy sure had a lot of fun at Paris Fashion Week this year — so much fun, in fact, that he’s decided to lay it all bare in an upcoming documentary short. Filmed by French director Julien Bachelet, Paris Is Burning follows the Bad Boy mogul as he navigates in and out of limos through a storm of paparazzi flashbulbs, layers himself in Rolex watches and hypes a nightclub crowd from a VIP view. But you’ll have to excuse us if we’re not shivering with excitement to see this one-percenter’s report on “What I Did Last Summer.” More »

Police Arrest Diddy’s Uninvited House Guest

Thirty-year-old Quamine Taylor certainly overstayed his welcome at Diddy‘s posh East Hampton mansion earlier this month, specifically because he was never welcome in the first place. The East Hampton Town Police Department arrested the creepy fan on April 1 after he was discovered living it up in the music mogul’s property reportedly wearing Diddy’s clothes, eating his food and drinking his Ciroc. (The trespasser tried something similar in 2001, when he was found swimming in the pool at Diddy’s estate.) More »

Mega Millions, Mega Hits: 11 Pop Songs About Money That Won The Chart Lottery

The country is going insane right now as the Mega Millions lottery has reached a record-breaking $640 million. We thought we’d celebrate (before making another lottery ticket run) with 11 pop songs about being filthy, stinkin’ rich that had a few lucky numbers of their own, so to speak, when they hit big on Billboard Hot 100 chart. Jump below to sample the tunes you’ll be having your chauffeur blast through your stretch limo when you hit the jackpot. More »

‘American Idol’: Top 10 Take On Billy Joel

Last night the Top 10 touring American Idol contestants took on Billy Joel’s all-American songbook. (Sadly, “We Didn’t Start The Fire” wasn’t included.) And who better to mentor the singers during Billy Joel week than … Diddy? (JLo apparently has a thing for working with exes on reality competition shows.) Tommy Hilfiger was also in tow as the style guru, so it was a blown-out episode. Read on to find out who blew up the competition. More »

The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize”: Still Hypnotic 15 Years After His Death

Today marks the 15-year anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.’s untimely death, and a decade and a half later his music continues to hypnotize. (Even Britney Spears referenced him on last year’s “Drop Dead Beautiful.”) On March 9, 1997, at age 24, Biggie (real name: Christopher George Latore Wallace) was gunned down in Los Angeles in a drive-by shooting, his killer never apprehended. But the Grammy-nominated “Hypnotize” surged in popularity and hit #1 on the charts, as did his appropriately-titled posthumous album Life After Death. Recall one of the greatest hip hop singles of all time by watching the action-packed video (featuring helicopters, mermaids, and a car chase) below. More »

Diddy And Alicia Keys Hit Up Kanye West’s Paris Fashion Week Show (PHOTOS)

Have an extra $6,000 lying around? Why not buy some stilettos from Kanye West’s fall/winter collection? Those of us with slightly less expensive taste, however, will have to content ourselves with merely looking at photos from the runway show at Paris Fashion Week today. In attendance were Diddy (sans his new BFF) and Alicia Keys (gee, who knew she was in Paris this week?), along with non-musicians such as Rosario Dawson and Kim Kardashian (no, “Jam” doesn’t count as “music”). Let us know if you’d wear any of Kanye’s fashions on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments.

Robyn And Diddy Are After-Hours BFFs At Paris Fashion Week

We’re not sure exactly what’s been going down after hours at Paris fashion week, but it sure sounds fun (and delicious!). The most killingest pop star on the planet got familiar with bad boy Diddy at Paris fashion week, sitting side-by-side at the Kenzo Ready-To-Wear Fall/Winter 2012 show. However, it seems the real fun took place after hours, judging by Robyn and Diddy’s tweets. The somewhat unlikely duo posted an intentionally-upside-down photo of themselves, along with a pic of them eating authentic French crepes. Yum! See more below. More »

Kanye West, Alicia Keys & Diddy Are Black & White For Paris Fashion Week (PHOTOS)

It was a very colorless affair for many of our favorite hip hop and R&B performers at the Givenchy show for Paris fashion week over the weekend. As he so often does, Kanye West opted for a plain white shirt — but at least this one was a sweater, studded with stars. Meanwhile, Diddy was his opposite in sleek head-to-toe black, while Alicia Keys looked positively beatific in a white top with a large golden cross around her neck. “King of Hearts” songbird Cassie also rocked an all-black number. With such stunning taste amongst the guests, we have to wonder if anyone was able to pay attention to the runway!

Will Rihanna Play Whitney Houston In Biopic?: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: Rihanna is on the short list to play the late, great Whitney Houston in a possible upcoming biopic (so soon? jeez), even though her first movie Battleship has yet to be released (thus we have no idea if she can act or not). Hmm… but who could they find to play abusive lover Bobby Brown opposite her? No one we can think of, surely. No one with the same last name, even. [Popdust]

:: A debate about whether white men can or cannot jump ended when Diddy was dunked over in the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Mostly, we’re just shocked Diddy let himself be associated with any liquid besides Ciroc, clearly the only beverage anyone in the entire world should drink. Ever.  [PunchBowl Blog]

:: Nicki Minaj will play the UK’s V festival this summer. Which is fine, as long as “V” doesn’t stand for “Vatican.” [That Grape Juice]

:: Beyonce took a leopard-print blanket out for a walk. Oh, and apparently it had something called a “Blue Ivy” in it. [JustJared]

:: Azealia Banks’ debut album won’t drop until September. “The theme is a young girl trying to find it,” she says of the LP, titled Broke With Expensive Taste. Ah yes, we can relate. [Rap-Up]

Jim Jones Arrested For Fighting At Diddy’s Foxwoods Casino Party

Party foul! Rapper Jim Jones was one of five people arrested yesterday after a fight that broke out early morning at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. The altercation transpired at a party hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs (no stranger to ill-tempered outbursts himself — what, did they run out of Ciroc?). Jones was charged with resisting arrest for an alleged assault on an officer and breach of peace.  See what Jones tweeted following the arrest below.
