MAGAZINE GLAM OR SHAM?: Diddy in His Underwear for GQ Magazine
Wednesday, July 21, 2010
Diddy never fails to entertain me! His latest stunt is a feature for GQ Magazine in which he swings on a chandelier with his crotch in full view.
While I could have lived without seeing Diddy’s drawers, I love the energy of the shot. The article, by contrast, takes a serious turn as the music mogul reflects on his father’s murder and his mother’s influence in his life:
On finding out his father was murdered and was one of Harlemâ€™s leading drug dealers:
â€œI had looked up my fatherâ€™s name, and I saw an article about my mother wearing a full length chinchilla to a funeral and taking me, and I was in a mink, and the story was of the glamour and the decadence of our family, and how he was the kingpin of Harlem, and how he had got assassinated. I understood why my mother didnâ€™t tell me the truth because where I was living, I probably would have been one of the biggest drug dealers out there. The type of person I am, I would have wanted to follow in my fatherâ€™s footsteps.â€
On his mother being a big influence:
â€œMy mother is why I am, who I am today. People can say what they want to say, but I just represent being sucker free, working hard and being positive. I donâ€™t hate on nobody, Iâ€™m not a negative individual. I just wake up and I go for mine and I try to work the hardest I can work. I could have gone a lot of different routes, but I decided to go the route of hard work.â€
On the motivation to continue after all his success:
â€œThe motivation is to be better. Thereâ€™s been room for improvement for me as a recording artist even as a producer, as a man, as a mogul. Itâ€™s not even about greed or â€˜when will he stop?â€™ because Iâ€™m just not going to. Iâ€™m not going to stop, probably ever. Itâ€™s a love; itâ€™s not money because the money has been achieved.
Deep. What do you think of that photo? Will you pick up the issue?
