Diddy Says: Lower Gas Prices So I Can Fly My Private Jet!

This article was written by in Economy. 6 comments.

A few days ago, rap mogul “Diddy” (aka Sean Combs) shared his thoughts on high gas prices with the world through a video “blog” posted at Youtube. I’ve embedded the video below for all who are interested. Readers enjoying Consumerism Commentary via RSS will need to click through to see what Diddy has to say in his own words.

Apparently, in order to further his acting career, Diddy’s monthly expenditures for bi-coastal flights on his private jet are now up to $250,000. He gives a shout-out to his Saudi Arabrian brothers and sisters to send him oil. I’m not sure, but I don’t think you can put oil in the jet fuel tank. This self-made video shows Diddy in what appears to be a gate at Newark Liberty International Airport boarding a flight to Los Angeles on American Airlines. He also says he has a coach ticket, but he sits down in a comfy seat in front of the bulkhead, which looks like a First Class or Business Class seat.

I guess everyone is accustomed to a certain style of living. I hope the economy shapes up soon and the price of gas eases off, if not for the country’s sake, for Diddy’s. Watch the video after the jump.

This video contains some “bad language,” so if you are offended by words, you may want to skip the video.

Diddy even has a television show on VH1 called I Want to Work for Diddy. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at working inside the Diddy empire. This guy is GOOD at promoting his stuff and you can see why people want to work for him.

as I stated over at Cash Money Life I think it’s a marketing thing. Diddy enjoy’s being in the spotlight and having his name out there, he even stated on his show that he enjoys stirring things up with video’s on his blog.

Yeah I agree with the other Jim. That video looks like its tongue in cheek.
