Diddy copped the cover of Vibe, and here is an excerpts from his interview with them.  I think he made some interesting claims in regards to there being some underlying racism in his interview with Martin Bashir.  I would call foul but after he makes the Steve Jobs point I kind of see where he is coming from.

  • What happened during the Martin Bashir interview on Nightline?
    There were times in the interview when I had to give him an ultimatum. The questions weren’t being handled the right way. In hindsight, when I saw him I shouldn’t had done the interview because I know the style of interview that he does . . . 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 Bentleys and it ain’t no question. It’s really a racist question and put things back in perspective with money and the way that people still look at you. And I’m not saying that consciously he’s a racist. But he probably don’t even realize 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.
