Diddy - My New Assistant

Diddy Explains The New Qualification To Become His Next Assistant: You Gotta Know How to Read

Last week Diddy posted a video on his YouTube and Myspace pages saying he was looking for a new personal assistant. What exactly happened to his last assistant? That’s the question anyone needs to ask before sitting in that hot seat. And is this to be his a personal assistant or his man servant ala Bentley Fonzworth and that kid from ATL, Jackie Long (he was more of an award night rental.)

Whatever the case there was no shortage of applicants. Diddy was surprised and happy with the response: 10,000 people sent in video applications. Problem is you’ve seen the wanna be contestants on the Idol and Making the Band shows, for the most part more than half of them are not qualified for the deal.

That’s why two days later he posted another video explaining some new rules.

  1. You gotta know how to read.
  2. You gotta know how to write.
  3. You have to know how to count.
  4. “I hope you know have to have a college degree!”

That last rule is where Diddy seems to have forgotten where he came from. He doesn’t have a college degree, skipped classes to make his train trips to New York on the regular, and ultimately dropped out after he talked Andre Harell into giving him a job.

If knowing how to read and write is gonna disqualify 5-6 thousand people he’s gonna have to do a real job search. Not this “you’ll pick the finalists” game show stuff.

Maybe he should be working on keeping Danity Kane together and actually releasing albums (Elephant Man, Cheri Dennis) and promoting them (Eight Ball & MJG) instead of all of these strictly to stay visible talent searches.

Here are a few of the videos floating around.

Diddy don’t care what your personal opinions, what you think, how funny you are, etc. He just wants a man or woman slave. Hell, I’ll be surprised if he’ll ever ask you to speak to him for the first year. Duhhhh

Diddy, I know that you are making money but you shouldn’t put your people through the things that you do. Thats pretty messed up man. Bless people just as you have been blessed. God don’t like ugly.

I would enjoy working as your personal Assistant. Many personal Assistants don’t understand, it’s an extremely demanding fast pace industry.Diddy a man with power, and lots of responsibility to manage. People don’t give you enough credit.
Any skilled experienced Personal Assistant in the Industry is aware and capable of managing Personal needs. Especially Assisting all task required as well as needed at all times.
24/7 remaining on point and learn, you can sleep when you die.
This job as your personal assistant is Somthing to take pride in.
Marisol Strauss,

Funny I am an assistant for a cotroparion. I get to be two people’s bitch and don’t get paid jack for it. I’m sure people like Diddy are hard to work for, but I’m sure the people who are in that position get paid well and get a lot of other perks (connections, free stuff, meeting all the celebs). So yes, I would definately work for someone like that.
