Bad Boy Records head Diddy may be a music mogul but he also knows how to throw a party after reportedly having Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Jay Z, Drake and Rick Ross all under the same roof this week.
According to reports, Puffy's Miami New Year's celebration stole the show Tuesday (December 31) night.
But the biggest party of them all was Diddy's bash at the Versace mansion in Miami. Beyoncé was seen dancing with Jay Z and catching up with her Destiny's Child groupmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams before driving off on a motorcycle with her husband. Drake took over the turntables, while Rick Ross, T.I., French Montana, and The-Dream sipped Ciroc. (Rap-Up)
The artist formerly known as Puff Daddy kept busy in 2013, notably at the Country Music Awards in Nashville promoting Revolt TV.
Diddy at the CMA Awards? "Are y'all surprised to see me here? Well Music City, I'm here!" he said after taking the stage in Nashville on Wednesday night with country star Kellie Pickler. "It's always been a dream of mine to come to the CMAs. I love me some country music, baby!" But his appearance wasn't completely without purpose -- he took a moment to plug his new channel, Revolt. He and Pickler presented the award for vocal group of the year to Little Big Town. (USA Today)
Diddy also recently lost some street cred after showing off his twerk moves during an appearance on "The Ellen Show" to promote Revolt.
As he continues his promotional campaign for Revolt TV, Diddy went up to The Ellen Show to talk about the burgeoning network and why he feels like he needs to go back to his old roots of aggressiveness. Following the interview, Diddy played a dancing game with Ellen. Both of them are forced to perform a dance for the other person, as they attempt to guess what dance it is. And naturally, Diddy got the card that said "twerking." "I just twerked for y'all... I lost a lot of street cred." (Complex)
Geared toward all-music everything, Diddy said he wanted to take a gradual pace at growing the brand a few months ago.
"In the first 24 months we want you to turn on the channel from whatever device or site -- Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr -- and get the best music the world has to offer and real-time news and interviews. I am a marathon runner. I ran the New York City marathon and almost died. I tried to run like a two-minute mile early on in the race. I was crazy enough to think I could win. After seven miles I thought I would die, but I slowed down my pace and kept going. The first couple of miles with Revolt we want to run at a nice pace. The programming will be music, music, music. In 20 years we haven't had the right kind of curated music done in the right way. It will be news shows where we ask the tough questions that when artists are on they know they have made it. It could be festivals or sponsoring a nightclub event. When you turn to this network I want you to know you will see music content and high journalistic standards." (Ad Age)
