Diddy Is Concerned About The Rising Price Of Ego

On the same day that Barack Obama announced Joe Biden as his running mate, Diddy took to the blogs to address an issue that’s been on a lot of voters’ minds: the effect rising gas prices are having on private jet travel?

Diddy never ceases to confuse me. At first I assumed that this was a tongue-in-cheek video having a little bit of fun with his own celebrity while discussing a relatable subject: gas prices. And it almost is. But then when he sits down on the plane and shows his plane ticket? We already believed you, Diddy. I know this might come as a shock, but it’s really not that hard to believe that you were flying first class on American Airlines because private jet travel had become economically untenable. You know that regular people don’t think of you as “the don,” right? Your fantasies of sitting on your world domination throne as the people of the world come to kiss the ring, those are just in your head, they aren’t communal.

Don’t get me wrong, having your own fashion line distributed in TJ Maxx’s nationally is very, very impressive.
