Diddy Talks Father’s Murder, Relationships & More

Published: Monday 26th Oct 2009 by Sam

While Diddy’s musical offerings may have you reaching for the mute button, the Bad Boy honcho sure knows how to dish the business when it comes to interviews – well at least when it comes to his recent chat with Elle Magazine. In this revealing interview, which I spotted over at my girl Necole Bitchie, Diddy opens up about the effect his father’s murder had on him, his approach to relationships and more. An interesting, I must say:

Were you a sexually precocious kid?

SEAN COMBS: I was in pursuit of female attention from when I was probably four or five. It started with my mother’s friends putting me to sleep on their laps. But I wasn’t really asleep; I was enjoying the way it felt to lay on a pair of beautiful breasts.

And how did your first time go?

SC: Great, but I’d had a lot of practice from watching this show on cable called Midnight Blue, where they had actual scenes from pornos. Me and Midnight Blue had a Thursday night at one o’clock date—I’d make sure my mother was asleep, take a shower, lock the door, put on cologne.

Wasn’t there an awful lot of talking from Midnight Blue host Al Goldstein?

SC: Yeah, he definitely talked a lot. And he interrupted. But it taught me mind control.

Your dad was shot to death when you were only three. Who taught you how to behave with women?

SC: A couple years ago, my psychologist came to the conclusion that this is one of the big problems I have as far as maturing in a relationship. After my father got killed, my mother said, “I’m never getting married again. I don’t want men around my children.” So I’ve never actually been able to witness a husband and wife’s love. Sometimes when I see it with my friends, I just find myself staring like a child, because I’ve never actually seen it before. It’s one of the sad parts of my life.

So what kind of behavior does this bring out in relationships?

SC: When a relationship gets to a certain point, I probably get scared and become a little self-destructive.

By self-destructive, do you mean going out with other women?

SC: Yeah.

If you get caught cheating red-handed, what’s the best response?

SC: Cry. It might not work, but it at least shows that you care. Goddamn, this is a deep interview. You didn’t ask Will Smith none of this shit!

But we’re making such valuable progress! Just tell me: Are the tears real?

SC: Yeah, it hurts me. One of my weaknesses is that I actually have a conscience.

Wow. This is the first I’ve heard about his father’s passing. Quite unfortunate.

In any case, reading this sure as hell drives home why Cassie and Kim Porter are in the positions they are (see: Monica’s ‘Makings of Me’ LP, track #3). I just marvel at how, knowing this, these chicks still throw themselves at him. Confused.com…

    I’m not really a huge fan or diddy, but I had to do a double-take at how direct those damn interview questions were. How can you just up and ask someone about their parent’s murder? That’s not something you can just get over and discuss freely at any point of your life.

    Oh my god Sam. How frickin’ obsessed are you with Cassie’s involvement with Diddy? Why don’t you go ahead and become a peeping tom already? I think you need to get over it. Perhaps they have genuine feelings for one another…

    Great interview. I actually liked the directness of the question and clearly Diddy didn’t mind. Sometimes it helps an artist’s image if we’re allowed to see this side of them. Good on Diddy.

    I was never really a fan of Diddy especially knowing that he destroys all the artists who work with him and they never make money. Then when he tried to throw shade on Whitney with that assinine comment he made, I was just through with him.

    Regarding his baby mamas, if he had a conscience he would marry one of them and/or stop making illigitimate children. Having said that, I do admire his work ethic and how he takes care of Al B Sure’s son who is not his biological child.
