Last night, Diddy sat down for a Nightline interview with famous jerk Martin Bashir, and Bashir’s shtick was so off-putting that Diddy came off downright charming by comparison. Click through to 6:10 for the worst of it, when Bashir tries to make Diddy admit he’s a terrible father because he gives his children loads of money.
RAPPER P.DIDDY has spoken out about his controversial interview with British reporter, Martin Bashir and branded his questions ‘racist’.
The Bad Boy impresario was interviewed by Bashir for ABC News’ Nightline programme and was questioned about gifting his 16-year-old son Justin a $400,000 (259,672.81) Maybach car on his birthday.
The father of six told Vibe magazine that he thought such questioning was racist and that in hindsight ‘I shouldn’t had done the interview.’
He said: “The whole thing about giving a Maybach to my son, that’s really like a racist question. You don’t ask white people what they buy their kids. And they buy ‘em Porsches and convertible Benteys and it ain’t no question.
“It’s really a racist question and put things back in perspective with money and the way people still look at you. And I’m not saying that consciously he’s racist. But he probably don’t even realise that he would not ask Steve Jobs that. He would be like ‘Steve Jobs has that money and that’s the gift his kid is supposed to get.
