Artist P. Diddy has managed to collect a huge wealth from music sales, but also from other businesses, being appreciated for his entrepreneurial spirit. Rapper P. Diddy is one of the richest people in showbiz with a fortune estimated at U.S. $ 500 million, obtained through various investments in music, fashion industry, lifestyle products and even alcoholic beverages. One of the best investments of the musician are the shares that he has at Ciroc company, a very well sold vodka brand. Another competitor to the list of richest people in showbiz is director Michael Bay, who owes his personal wealth to shareholding in the company that produced films in the “Transformers” franchise that still collects astronomical amounts of money. The latest film in the series, “Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon” has brought incomes of 1.11 billion dollars worldwide, being on the on the fifth place among movies with highest income in movie history.

While many artists gather their memories in autobiographies, P Piddy is thinking about releasing a great book, with butts.
The singer, whose real name is Sean Combs, made a deal with director of the Interscope label, Jimmy Lovine, to release together a photo album dedicated to women, but especially men.
The publication includes 150 images depicting female butts, made by photographer Raphael Mazzucco during ten months.
“The butt” album will be released in November and will cost $ 50.
P Diddy’s publication will compete with another book, which is to be released in November. We’re talking about Oprah Winfrey’s volume, entitled ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show: Reflections on an American Legacy’.
In other news, P Diddy will release a new perfume, called Sean John Empress and wants singer Kelly Rowland to be the image of this perfume.
This is probably going to make him drop his recent acting ambitions for a spell. It seems that Diddy’s high after-party rates and high-end conditions have been matched. Of course, Diddy’s after-party isn’t going to be taking place in New York, but in New Jersey and the rapper is going to make an impressive $75, 000 out of this party alone. It’s good to see that somebody finally managed to step up and give Diddy what he wanted. This means that the Diddy-Dirty Money will go on without any hindrance and Diddy is probably going to be a lot happier about it too.
Mary J Blige recently premiered the music video for her Diddy and Lil Wayne-assisted single “Someone to Love Me”. The 70s inspired record will serve as the official lead single from the R&B singer’s upcoming 10th studio album “My Life II: The Journey Continues”, which is due out on September 20th. The song isn’t exactly new as it was on Diddy-Dirty Money’s album “Last Train to Paris”. For me, the song was meant for Mary to sing. Her voice just fits and it sounds natural. As for the video, it features Mary singing on a broken bridge, Diddy wandering through a corridor and Lil Wayne walking a futuristic set.

The prestigious Forbes business magazine has recently compiled a top of the wealthiest rappers in the world and it seems that Diddy has taken the number one spot with an estimated fortune of 475 million dollars. One would’ve expected Jay-Z to be the richest rapper out there, but the numbers seem to differ in that respect since Beyonce’s husband’s wealth is estimated at only 450 million dollars. Still, it looks like Jay-Z does make double the money Diddy does in a year so it does look like the latter is probably a bit more careful with his money and likes to save it for a rainy day. And yet, it still is an interesting turn of events since Diddy does have a lot more children to raise than Jay-Z.
Apart from getting to perform his new single, “Coming Home”, together with his group Diddy – Dirty Money next month, the rapper will supposedly be getting the chance to coach the contestants of American Idol. This is what Diddy had to say about his role on the show: “I’m helping the contestants with their styles. I’m helping to dress them with Sean John. I’m bringing a celebrity stylist to help us this week. We’re going try to get them to have that superstar shine and swagger that I try to exude on a daily basis. I’m going to hit ‘em with some musical tips, some inspiration, some motivation, and then I’m gonna show ‘em how to do it. I’m going to hit that stage after I show ‘em how to have that swagger.” And so the brainwashing begins: first phase, the attire. We’ll see how good a job Diddy will be able to do in this department.
Here is the “American Idol” Top 13 of Season 10:
It seems that the rapper who is good friends with David Beckham has been inspired by him to further procreate the species. This is what Diddy had to say about the idea of having another kid… in addition to the five he already has: “I last saw Beckham a couple months ago. We are both proud fathers. That’s what our friendship is about, not being stars or artists. We ask how are kids are doing. I’m so happy he’s got another on the way. I hope he has as many as me. I want more.” Well, well, these boys seem to take pride in extending their gene pools. Diddy is pretty close to building a dynasty actually, at the way he’s going.
The rapper is apparently getting pretty passionate about comedies, especially given the success his first one, “Get Him to the Greek”, had. This is what Diddy confessed about starring in comedies: “When I did ‘Get Him to the Greek,’ I really fell in love with making people laugh. I have a knack for improvisation, and hopefully I’ll be able to make people laugh more.” Finally he has discovered it! More than anything else, Diddy has finally found that the most noble endeavor in the land is making people laugh. Hopefully he will find more career opportunities that will permit him to join the proud descendants of the court jester.
The two rappers have apparently teamed up to make a new song called “Tomorrow Tonight”. Unfortunately, their efforts have been somewhat sabotaged since the song recently got leaked on the internet. Perhaps this was just what Diddy and Ludacris were counting on. The song is a sort of hip-hop combined with a bit of R&B. The lyrics are a bit explicit, but then again, what would a hip-hop song be without explicit lyrics. There’s a pretty strange contrast here since this is supposedly a party song, but it’s rather mellow for one. Oh well, maybe this is just a little experiment of Diddy’s and Ludacris’.
It looks as if as the years go on, Diddy is wishing he would have made some different choices with his life… especially in the marriage sector. This is what the rapper said on the matter: “At different times in my life, as my heart got broken by one, I cried on the shoulder of another. It wasn’t at the same time. Life isn’t something you can predict. Every woman that I was with, that I had a child with, they did deserve for me to marry them. But there’s things going on in my life … I’m not gonna say it’s all the way me, but I’ll take responsibility as a man. What if my twins ask why I ain’t married to their mom? Damn, how do I respond?” There will come a day when Diddy will probably realize that he actually did the right thing in the end. If it’s not in the cards there’s no point in setting up for a divorce.
