Diddy recently discussed his personal life and explained why his relationships with women have, in some cases, led to his inability to stay loyal to their trust.
Diddy said his "fear" has pushed him to go out with other women during a relationship.
"A couple years ago, my psychologist came to the conclusion that this is one of the big problems I have as far as maturing in a relationship," Diddy explained in an interview. "After my father got killed, my mother said, 'I'm never getting married again. I don't want men around my children.' So I've never actually been able to witness a husband and wife's love. Sometimes when I see it with my friends, I just find myself staring like a child, because I've never actually seen it before. It's one of the sad parts of my life. When a relationship gets to a certain point, I probably get scared and become a little self-destructive. [If caught cheating,] cry. It might not work, but it at least shows that you care. Godd*mn, this is a deep interview. You didn't ask Will Smith none of this sh*t! Yeah, it hurts me. One of my weaknesses is that I actually have a conscience." (ELLE Magazine)
Puffy recently said he would touch on the subjects of love and emotion for his new album, The Last Train To Paris.
"One of the things we're trying to represent is emotion," Diddy said of the upcoming album. "Not being afraid to show emotion on record. A lot of records out right now -- no disrespect to them, but they're all surface. It's about what people have or a dance. All our records are gonna be about love, feelings and emotion. Last Train to Paris is a love story and the most vulnerable album I've ever been involved in. It's raw emotion -- you get a feeling, a vibe." (MTV)
During their brief break-up over the summer, Nas addressed allegations which claimed he was unfaithful to his wife, Kelis.
"It's funny that someone would even care about some Nasir Jones sh*t," Nas said in an interview. "I'm still that kid from the block at the end of the day... So when I watch this sh*t, it's surreal. We get a good laugh off it and say, 'Hey, they're talking about me again and it's some funny sh*t'...I heard that I was a cheater...It almost sounds like I was a bad husband. Not to say I was the greatest - I'm not perfect in anything I do -- but I think I deserve a f*cking trophy. If I do say so myself, without sounding too cocky, I gotta say I was a hell of a husband and a hell of a dad...It's unfortunate when business is out there about your personal sh*t, especially when you're really not the guy to be having his sh*t out there...The sad thing is, you've got to get used to it. My skin is so thick that I probably need to write a book for people who are not ready for anything crazy." (Vancouver Straight)
Aside from power couples like Jay-Z and Beyonce, hip-hop has seen various publicized break-ups including Joe Budden and Tahiry as of late.
"I just feel like -- I'm never going to speak bad about Joey," Tahiry promised in an interview earlier this month. "I love him. Five years. It was a long time. We were just growing apart. We were not in the same zip codes. I just didn't feel like after five years we were building that foundation together. For a long time it was, 'Joe, Joe, Tahiry, Tahiry.' When it was beneficial, it was Joe and Tahiry. But you know after five years, you're supposed to feel like you're building something. I didn't feel like we were building anything...I dated one other rapper [Ed. note--that would be Fabolous]. We're very good friends now, contrary to belief. Very good friends. Remember after that I said, 'Ugh! Never a rapper!' Not because he was bad, because it was a lot. People think it's easy. All glitz and glamour, but it's not that easy. Then Joey came. And when he came, it wasn't supposed to happen, but I'm glad it did. I'm not interested in dating anyone right now. But I'm not saying never say never because you know sh*t happens" (Complex)
