Eye View Music, P Diddy Out- Sold By Dead Man, Who’s Your Daddy

December 22, 2010

Michael Jackson‘s “Michael” album enters the charts at number 3 this week, right behind Taylor Swift and Susan Boyle.

“Michael” sold 224,000 copies, about 25,000 less than the two women.

On the other hand, “Michael” was the highest debut album of the week according to It outsold new CDs by R. Kelly and P Diddy by more than 100,000 copies. Around the world, however, Sony says it’s an international hit.

However, Jackson’s last album, “Invincible,” sold 363,000 copies in its first week, back on October 30, 2001.

Given the modest amount of money that went into marketing “Michael” and the huge sums wasted on P Diddy, you could say “Michael” is even a bigger hit.

Dead man out sells P Diddy. Who’s your Daddy?


Eye View Hollywood,Diddy’s $360,000 Maybach Birthday Gift To Son Questioned On ‘Nightline’

June 13, 2010

When asked by Martin Bashir, if he enjoyed being a dad, Diddy said yes, but admitted that it was the area that he did not consider himself most successful, citing that his kids “deserved more (of his) personal time.”That response jump-started a series of questions about Diddy’s parental discretion that made the hip-hop figure visibly annoyed at times.

Bashir suggested that Diddy was setting a bad example as a role model by having six kids by multiple women.

Diddy defended himself, saying, “All of my kids are taken care of. They all go to the best schools.” Bashir quipped, “But you don’t live with them.”  Nightline aired footage of the VH1 show My Super Sweet 16, celebrating Diddy’s son Justin.

 That episode made the news when it aired in February because Diddy gave Justin a Maybach car worth more than $360,000. Bashir asked Diddy what many people wanted to know — “Do you think it was appropriate to buy your 16-year-old son a Maybach car worth almost $400,000?”When Bashir asked if giving such a lavish gift imposed a “sensible lesson,” Diddy said, “I feel the way I raise my children, you know, I don’t have to explain to you or anybody else because nobody knows the way I raise my children.” “It’s what I wanted to do. I can do whatever I want to do with my children. And you can’t question me about it. Nobody can question me about what I do with my children.”

Maybe Diddy should have gotten  Justin a $200,000 boat?
