‘I’m Like, I Cant Start Crying At The Dance:’ Diddy Talks Getting Emotional During Recent Father-Daughter Ball
Earlier this week, the adorable photos of Sean “Diddy” Combs and his adorable twin daughters D’Lila and Jessie, looking Easter Sunday sharp hit the web. The captions that accompanied the photos revealed that Diddy and his girls would be attending their first daddy-daughter dance, which Diddy revealed that he was totally excited about. The 43-year-old hip hop mogul recently paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he chatted it up about fatherhood and how it has changed him. Check out some of what he had to say below.
On relocating to Los Angeles to be closer to the kiddies:
“I’m officially bi-coastal… I moved out here here now. My son goes to UCLA, all my kids live out here now. I have six kids. Clap for my six kids and I would like for you to clap for me because I pay for all of their tuition. My oldest son [Quincy] works for my network, Revolt, and he’s an aspiring singer. My son below him, Justin, he is at UCLA red-shirted, so hopefully this year he will hit the field. And then I have a son, Christian, who is 14 and three girls who are 6, long story.”
On getting a bit teary-eyed during his first father-daughter dance:
“It was my first father-daughter dance with the twins. They are fun but they will wear you out and then it makes you go home and give your wife or the mother of your children a hug and a kiss and some money and a car or something. Like, I was looking at the clock and it’s like, you know, it starts at , and its like 7 o’clock and I’m looking at the clock and I’m worn out and I’m like ‘I don’t know how I am going to make it to 9 and they’re dancing like me times a hundred. If you thought I was dancing fast there, it’s like little girls are just screaming and jumping on your back and it’s just so intense.
It’s been a part of my evolution, I had my teary-eyed moment. I’m like, I can’t start crying at the dance, I don’t want to embarrass my daughters. I’m going through something right now that no money, no success or no accolades that I’ve gotten can ever measure up to being able to enjoy the beauty of my kids, especially my daughters.”
On the twins being a handful:
“It’s just a little bit harder trying to watch twins. And they’re identical twins so it’s just like … [points side-to-side]. And they don’t really stick together, they actually go opposite ways. So I’m just like running around.”
On how he’s changed since having children:
To be honest, I work very hard for my kids to enjoy a great life and I make no apologies for being able to provide them with experiences that I’ve worked hard to experience. For me, I’ve just started to grow up and it’s been a little late. When you grow up in entertainment and you’re not working on or not really following any rules, once you have kids, [that changes.] I think for me, it was having girls because the boys could fall down the stairs and everything is going to be alright but the girls, it’s like a whole different line of questioning and focus. It really just makes you face reality. It’s just been great for me.
One thing that’s difficult to deny is that Diddy loves his kiddies!

So I was watching “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in the hopes of hearing some hilarious commentary about the election, because the late-night comics usually keep the laughs coming with their skits and parody videos. But I was howling in my apartment when I saw this video of a reporter for WSVN 7 News in Florida at Obama headquarters painfully confusing one black man with two men who look absolutely nothing like him. When the anchors caught up with the reporter to get his take on the night’s events, you could tell that said reporter, Blake Burman, was too excited to show the audience that there was a big celebrity in his midst. Now who that celebrity was, unfortunately, the homie Blake clearly wasn’t too sure of that part. As the camera panned slowly to Black Eyed Peas front man will.i.am and back to Burman, he paused and with an assured look on his face, said “That’s Wyclef Jean giving an interview there.” As he continued with his statements about election night, someone working with him let him know that the fella was definitely not Wyclef, but they told him wrong and he then went on to claim that will.i.am was rapper Wale of all people (you know, the MMG member with the locs). A few minutes later, as his commentary went on, Burman cleared up that this mystery celebrity was indeed will.i.am, and he pulled the “I must be tired” card that Diane Sawyer used to explain her own interesting behavior and confusion on ABC during election night. I’m not mad at him, in fact, I thought it was very hilarious. But will.i.am? He might not have found it so comical…
And if you’ve got a minute, you also need to check out this hilarious video (made like a PSA) Jimmy Kimmel did on obnoxious social media behavior that needs to stop now that the election is over. That includes claiming you’re moving to Canada, calling folks “scumbags” and “socialists,” and even pooping on people’s lawns. Hey, I’m sure somebody’s doing the latter in saltiness. Classic.
Ashanti is very determined to make this comeback happen. And to ensure that it does go off without a hitch, she’s been doing media rounds, and even stopped at “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to get some shine. While there, she performed her single, “The Woman You Love,” in a VERY interesting outfit, which included an embellished bodysuit and two-tone locks that were…interesting. As for the performance, it was hard to hear her sing because the actual record was blaring in the background, and when you could hear her, she was doing more yelling than harmonizing. And those dance moves could have been a bit tighter. But then again, this is all part of a comeback, and I’m sure she’ll tighten things up soon. Check out the performance from the other night below and let us know what you think of her look and of course, of her performance in general. Can Ashanti really make a comeback with the changing face of music right now? You tell us…
