How adorable is Chance Combs? The daughter of Diddy and Sarah Chapman is a little model now. She walked the Ooh! La, La! Couture show last year with her sisters, twins Jesse and D’Lila, during Kids Fashion Week in NYC. Chance didn’t get to walk with her sisters this time around, but she did her thing on her own during the recent Petite Parade show. She rocked a fur (we’re assuming fake since it’s a kid’s show) and according to Black Celeb Kids, a gorgeous dress from Alivia Simone. Chapman posted quite a few pictures of Chance’s time at the show, after the show, and in the makeup chair to her Instagram, and Chance definitely is a model in the making. Check out all the cuteness below and on the next couple of pages.

Though the initial launch was shaky, Diddy’s Revolt TV has largely been a success.
Branded the new number one in music news, the Bad Boy founder now looks to expand his empire in 2014.
Madison Square Garden’s Fuse TV Network is for sale and it’s been reported that Diddy has placed a bid for around $200 million.
Similar to when WWE CEO Vince McMahon, acquired rival wrestling brand WCW, it appears that Diddy wants to buy Revolt’s competition.
“As we have stated, we are exploring strategic alternatives for Fuse, and will have no further comment during what is still an ongoing process,” Kimberly Kerns, a spokeswoman for MSG, said today in an e-mail.
Keesha Johnson, a press contact for Combs, declined to comment.
MSG hired JPMorgan Chase & Co. to explore a sale of Fuse, Bloomberg News reported in September. That decision was made after various parties expressed strategic interest in the TV network, Hank Ratner, the former chief executive officer, said on a Nov. 1, 2013, earnings conference call. Tad Smith replaced Ratner as president and CEO last month.
Michael Senno, an analyst at Credit Suisse, estimated in a Sept. 12 report that Fuse would receive bids between $200 million and $250 million.

In this day and age where celebs and everyday folks take to their social media pages to share every little detail of their lives, there are still some stars who like to keep their private lives very private.
Cassie and Diddy
Rumor had it Diddy and Cassie were dating well before they were ever photographed together. Caught up in a love triangle with Cassie and his children’s mother Kim Porter, Diddy snuck around with the “Me & U” singer showing up at the same events but making sure to never arrive or leave together. Recently the two have been more open about their relationship in public and on social media. Diddy has posted photos professing his love for Cassie and last month sparked rumors when he put up a picture of an engagement ring with the caption, “Baby do you like it? I just want to get you wat you Like!” he added. “I just wanna Mk you smile #takeDat!”

50 Cent raised the stakes in his beef with 3 rap heavyweights — publicly insinuating Diddy, Rick Ross and former record exec Steve Stoute are gay together … but he backed down minutes later.
The shots were fired Sunday — Fiddy posted the 2 pics on Instagram, one showing a pink-shirted Stoute embracing a pink-shirted Diddy. The other shows Diddy and Rick Ross from an angle that makes it look like they’re kissing.
Underneath, 50 wrote the caption, “I ain’t saying nothing, but something ain’t right. Lmao.” He yanked the pics down a short time later.

Fiat is tapping into urban music once again for its latest ad campaign.
Today, Fiat will premiere a new spot titled “Mirage” featuring Pharrell Williams’ hit song “Happy.” But you could call it the Sean “Diddy” Combs spot. He’s in the commercial promoting not only the new four-door Fiat 500L but also his own Aquahydrate “performance water” (a joint venture with Mark Wahlberg) and his new cable TV network Revolt.
To start, Diddy pulls up with two 500L Fiats and “Happy” pumping from the sound system. Diddy offers them a bottle of Aquahydrate, but the two guys think it is all just a mirage. Finally, they come upon an oasis where a party is happening. They’re greeted by a huge banner that reads “Revolt” and Diddy, again, offers them water. But unconvinced they still think it’s a mirage — because Fiat only makes two-door cars.
Chrysler chief marketing officer Olivier Francois calls the ad a “triangulation of brands.”
“Fiat could never write a check for an appearance from Diddy,” Francois said. “But we are able to offer something instead. The connection. The exposure. The triangulation of brands. Is it product placement? Of course it is. It’s Diddy’s products in our ad. But it makes as much sense as water in the desert. And in return, we get something unique. Him.”
Fiat licensed the rights to “Happy” for worldwide use.
“Happy,” which is also featured on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack album and is nominated for an Oscar, is No. 8 on Billboard‘s Hot 100. Francois heard the track early on in the process, when Williams invited him to the studio to listen to new material for possible collaborations down the line.
“There was one song that stuck in my head: ‘Happy,’” said Francois at Midem. “That song and the Fiat brand were a match made in heaven.”
“Music is the connector between us, the artist and another story,” Francois added.
Watch the spot below:
It’s not surprising at all that the late, great Michael Jackson (and his sister Janet) topped Business Insider‘s list of having the costliest music video of all time — Scream (1996). With a funky wardrobe, a futuristic spaceship, and black and white visuals, Scream cost a whopping $7 million!
But as I scrolled through the list, I was shocked that the King of Pop’s Thriller – arguably one of the most spectacular music videos ever — was absent. Diddy’s Victory (1998), not nearly as memorable and enduring as Thriller, made the list and cost $2.7 million! Clearly dropping excessive amounts of cash on a video doesn’t necessarily mean it will resonate with the public.
So this brings up a new question: Which videos have a low budget, but made a huge impact on the musical landscape? On the flip side, which videos cost an arm and a leg, but were mediocre at best? Let’s find out!
The 2014 Golden Globes have come and gone. Awards were handed out (quite a few we didn’t agree with), jokes were shared that had us cackling, speeches were made that were absolutely ridiculous and heartwarming, and the few people of color there were dressed to impress (or they tried their best to impress that is). Here are the looks, the moments, and the people that had us talking from the show.
We were just commenting on the stellar year that Diddy had in 2013 and now it looks like he wants to continue the trend in 2014. He and Diageo have jointly purchased American tequila brand DeLeon, building on the spirits business that started with the blockbuster vodka brand Ciroc.
“With Ciroc, we dated. Now with DeLeon, we’re married,” Sean Combs told Reuters.
For Diageo, the deal is a step towards replacing the tequila business lost when the company let its distribution deal with Jose Cuervo expire. Financial details haven’t been disclosed. But according to Bloomberg, each side will own half of the company. And DeLeon is sold in 18 states and Washington DC.
Diageo says it would like to make up for those lost Cuervo profits within two years. Eighty-five percent of all tequila is consumed in Mexico and the US. And Diddy says his favorite DeLeon tequila is an anejo that sells for $200 a bottle. A bottle of DeLeon can cost as much as $1,000. Moreover, Diageo North America President Larry Schwartz told Reuters that they could purchase another tequila brand. In a statement, the company also noted that tequila with a price point above $40 is the “second-fastest sector of the US tequila market.” CNBC also provides some info on the tequila market in the US, if you’d like a few more numbers.
Diddy and Diageo certainly have a winning track record. The Ciroc marketing and profit-sharing deal between the two was launched in 2007 and since then, sales of the brand have risen 40-fold.
“This deal is way better,” Diddy also told Reuters. “This makes me a true owner.”
Coffee runs, making photocopies, taking notes, being seen but not heard around the office. Those are some of the typical duties of an intern looking to make their way up the corporate ladder to establish their career. Although it is not the most glamorous job, interning helps you get your foot in the door to some great professional opportunities.
These celebrities knew how to make the best of their internships which catapulted their budding or already established careers. From a Teen Vogue fashion intern to a fashion designer and best-selling author, from a high school technology intern to one of the most influential people in the history of consumer electronics, these celebrities used their internships to make their mark.
Here are celebrities who used their internship as the foot in the door to their now infamous success.
These days, celebrity scandals are a dime a dozen. There are the cheating and sex scandals, the substance abuse scandals, and of course the paternity scandals. Dwyane Wade may be the most recent celeb to be outed for fathering a secret love child, but he certainly isn’t alone. Here are 15 other celebs who’ve fathered love children.
Just one week after Wade’s engagement to Gabrielle Union, explosive details emerged about him fathering a son with another woman (while he and Gabby were on a break). Although we can’t help but give this situation a little side eye, both Dwayne and Gabrielle have been standing firm in defense of their relationship — and his other one on the side.
