P. Diddy loses it over petrol price
Rapper , like most rich rappers, has his priorities all wrong. He has vowed not to use his private jet – not in solidarity with the starving people of Darfur or to protest human rights abuses in China. Nope, he is refusing to fly in his jet because he refuses to pay high prices for fuel, reports Bang Showbiz. The music mogul – who came third in’s recent list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings – promised to only use commercial airlines until fuel prices are reduced. P. Diddy said: "Gas prices are too f***ing high. As you know, I do own my own jet and I have been having flying back and forth to Los Angeles pursuing my acting career. Now, if I'm flying back and forth twice in a month that's like $200 000 or $250 000 (approx R1,5 – R2 million) round trip. F**k that. I'm back on American Airlines right now, OK." Speaking from an airport lounge on his YouTube video blog, he added: "I want to give a shout out to all my Saudi Arabian brothers and sisters and all my brothers and sisters from all the countries that have oil, if you could all please send me some oil for my jet I would truly appreciate it.” Wow. The price of fame, hey? We’re feeling your pain P. Diddles. The world is SO unfair.
