P. Diddy Forgetting His Past
So for some reason I'm currently watching an episode of Making the Band Season Whatever. In this episode Puff Daddy is constantly on the fat contestant's case about losing weight. Diddy wants the guy to exercise and diet so he can be healthier which is fine, BUT he also wants to guy to get into shape so that he can be "camera ready." Now please consider that Biggie was one of the least camera ready artists of all time, yet he made Puffy millions of millions of dollars through album sales and as a platform for Puffy to record albums and sign artists. Puffy's career is essentially built off the legacy of a fat, not particularly attractive, but very talented performer. So shouldn't Puffy more than anyone realize, that being "camera ready" is not a prerequisite to success in the industry?
