Diddy To Sign The Arctic Monkeys?
Move over faux lesbians and miniscule handbag dogs - the latest fashion accessory to hit Hollywood is rock bands!
According to 50, Kanye and Diddy, if you want to be so hip it hurts, go snag yourself a freshly tattooed/pierced rocker; at least that’s what we’re led to believe following a spate of hip hop/rock collaborations.
50 cent recently announced he is touring with Fall Out Boy, Kanye has collaborated with 30 Seconds to Mars and Diddy is currently in the throws of showing off, er we mean promoting his newest rocking accessory, the Arctic Monkeys.
Just posted on You Tube is a video of Diddy proclaiming his love for the Brit rockers.
"What up, it's your boy Diddy. I’m the newest member of the Arctic Monkeys. I'm not gonna be singing, I'm not gonna be playing any instruments, but I'm part of the crew; I'm part of the entourage. So if y'all f#%k with the Arctic Monkeys, y'all gotta f*#k with me."
So how did this portrayal of solidarity from the most unlikely of comrades come about? Well, taking cues from the recent spate of hip hop rock love, Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders decided to drop in on Diddy at his home unannounced.
A You Tube clip show the Arctic Monkey’s drummer recording his visit to the Diddster in his Mac-mansion; Helders expects the worst, but uncharacteristically, Diddy welcomes the lonely rocker into his lavish home, while providing him with food and 'signing' the Monkey’s to his record label Bad Boys. Whether he was serious or just hamming it up for the cameras is yet to be seen!
As he shakes hands with clearly bewildered and shocked Helders in his expensive kitchen, Diddy says,
‘We feed the multitudes. This is what we do. We feed everybody. This French toast right here, this is a lot of French toast. ... If I eat, everybody eat. ... This is enough French toast to feed 20 people. ... Everybody gotta eat. We are in a recession.’
Diddy also warned other rock bands if they were to mess with the Arctic Monkeys expect the wrath of Diddy.
‘All you other rock bands in London, if you even look at my guys weird backstage, I'm gonna jump on that motherf*$king British Airways flight and come backstage and stick my foot so far up your ass," he yells. "We havin' a bromance."
Helders sums up his future boss as a truly acceptable entourage member saying, "He's a very friendly guy. Probably the best host I've been hosted by in a long time, if not ever," he said. "He asked us to take our shoes off, which is acceptable."
We definatley likes this latest fashion trend. Hanging off a bad boy rocker totally acceptable in any case! But it begs the question, who’s hanging off who?
