What Was Diddy Doing In This Photo??? RESPECT Magazine Answers That Question And More

- By Bossip Staff Categories: A "Lil Positivity", Congratulations, For Your Viewing Pleasure

RESPECT Magazine, a quarterly photojournal featuring some of urban culture’s most stunning visuals, recently released their second issue and we decided to share a few shots with you. Pop the hood to feast your eyes… and find out what Diddy was doing in that photo!

Toronto-born photog Chris Buck says of the Diddy photo, shot in 1997:

“He has a house on the bay side of the Hamptons — that’s where he always throws his White Parties. The tide comes and goes, and I saw that there were some rocks just below the surface, and I thought it would be cool to shoot him there. He said, ‘No, I don’t think we should do that.’ But I sent my assistant out there and made them stand on the rock, and I took a Polaroid of him. Then I brought it back to Puffy and showed him and said, ‘Look how cool this looks.’ And he said, ‘Yeah, that’s cool. You’re right, we should do it.’ The way I got this particular shot is there was this girl he was dating or something, and she walked out there just to say hello, and I said, ‘Hey, put your arm on her shoulder.'”

Kim Porter, is that you???

(Oh the irony of Diddy landing on page 66!)

The second issue of RESPECT features iconic images shot by Jerome Albertini, Marc Baptiste, Estevan Oriol (who shot the cover photo of 50 Cent), Janette Beckman, Chris Buck, Kenneth Cappello and Mike Schreiber.

You can pick up the magazine at your local bookstore or newsstand or visit their website HERE.

    HE NEEDS TO TAKE ALL THAT WHITE OFF TRYING TO ACT LIKE HE IS SOMEONE’S SAVIOR!

    SHYT ALL HE DOES IS DESTROY!!

    Everytime I see that commercial with Diddy in a tuxedo riding a jetski I start laughing. This man needs a swimsuit, or trousers, whatever. I like the Lauryn Hill and Kelis photos.

  • drenk

    looks like he’s doing his best impression of a catholic priest, only a priest would never have a female in front of him like that

  • Roderick

    Is he going to baptize her?

  • Jewel

    Oh Gosh, and I know had there been no explaination, someone would’ve done their d.a.m.n.e.s.t to prove this is ILLUMINATI!!! LOL Great shot.

  • Encyclopedia Brown

  • Somali Ninga

    diddy and jay-z need to stop acting lie they’re God!! dumba$$ niggªs!!

  • TheOriginalBlkBarbie

    It looks like he is about to baptize her…or like he is trying to emulate God. I really don’t like that photo.

    (Otherwise it looks like she’s about to give him brains. Either way….DO.NOT.LIKE.)

  • cruzan trini

    Lauryn Hill is absolutely beautiful in that pic.

    I agree with TheOriginalBlkBarbie. Question for you… why do women insist on calling themselves a Barbie? Does anyone realize that Barbie has no brain?

  • whateva

    Almost looks like he’s walking on water…not a good look

  • didyouthinkthatthrough?

    I agree with TheOriginalBlkBarbie. Question for you… why do women insist on calling themselves a Barbie? Does anyone realize that Barbie has no brain?
    ——————————–
    I also agree with TOBB, but I don’t understand the “Barbie” thing either. Are you saying you’re fake, plastic, superficial or what? You can’t possibly being saying you’re intelligent so how is being a “Barbie” a good thing? Not trying to “go in” lol, just confused. Please explain.

  • MsAnoymonous(THE WISE ONE)

    SMDH…LOOK AT THIS BLASPHEMOUS IDIOT….diddy is truly a pompous clown.

    anyways to those goin hard on chicks callin themselves BARBIE>> i honestly dont believe it has anything to do with them wanting to be plastic, fake or brainless…I think the admiration falls in from BARBIE bein agelessly beautiful, rich and fabulous…BARBIE IS THE ULTIMATE FASHIONISTA AS WELL…and alot of women like BARBIE represents fashion beauty and the fabulous life thats why alot of women and girls compare themselves to BARBIE mainly because of those facts alone and THEEEEN you have many that are livin and wanting to look like BARBIE “literally”…..those are the ones I like to refer to as the “superficial broads.”

  • girly.

    ewwwww 50 cent body looks gross!! photo shop lines on his stomach!
