New & Improved?

Posted by Bossip Staff

Cassie is featured in the upcoming issue of Complex Magazine. Peep this sneak peek of her interview:

“Based on my past and how my last album came out, I really need to come back much much stronger, I wanted to have more personality. I really want to tell a story when I’m doing a song. Vocally, either you like my voice or you don’t. I’m not trying to blow like Mariah, back when she was doing that.”

On the harshest thing that’s been said about her…

” ‘She’s fu***** for checks. I don’t f*** for checks–I’d rather live on the street.”

On her song “Official Girl” being a marketing ploy to cash in on the P.Diddy rumors…

“Nope. It wasn’t planned. It was just a song I really loved that I heard. Nobody will ever know who “Official Girl” is about. They think it’s about certain people but it’s not. Anything that happens in my personal life is personal. I never actually put anything out there. Nobody’s really known who I’ve dated.”

On dealing with her ethnicity growing up…“What’s funny about it is, when I was growing up, I wasn’t confused. I knew exactly what I was. My dad’s Filipino, my mom is Mexican, West Indian and black–I’m a little melting pot. In school, you were either black or white. Being Asian really wasn’t anything until I got to high school and was modeling all the time, and it was important because it intrigued people. Black people definitely didn’t claim me before. They were like, ‘Light skinned over there, she’s just not for us.’ It’s all perception. The other day, I was at the drugstore and this girl in line was like, ‘She’s next, the white girl.’ I’m not white. I’m not even close.”

These days, when nobody gives a good got-damn about talent, this little heffah actually stands a fighting chance. SMH at her “f**kin for tracks” denial – as if anyone is buying that shyte.

A rep for Puffy says the whole thing was made up:

“Contrary to tabloid reports, there is no engagement. This was a complete fabrication.”

Yeah just like he wasn’t all hugged up with Cassie’s ass in Central Park on Mother’s Day.

Kim Diddy Cassie

Star magazine is reporting that commitment-phobe, Mr. Sean John Combs, has proposed to his little fu*kin for tracks project Cassie Ventura:

Sean “Diddy” Combs is giving marriage a chance. The bachelor father of six is quietly telling close friends and family that he and singer Cassandra “Cassie” Ventura are heading to the chapel.

“He told everyone to keep it extremely quiet because he didn’t want it to get out, but you could tell he was excited,” says a source. “Diddy said they hadn’t set a date yet, but he wanted his family to hear the news first.”

Diddy revealed his engagement to the Connecticut native at his son Justin’s eighth-grade graduation ceremony in Riverdale, N.Y., on June 5. The hip-hop megastar met 17-years-younger Cassie after signing her up to his label, Bad Boy Records, in 2006. Diddy ended his 10-year relationship with model Kim Porter last July.

However, we remember Diddy saying this ish a while back: Continue »

Cassie and Diddy Drinking

This should come as no shock:

Reports are surfacing that the clandestine romance between Sean “Diddy” Combs and R&B singer Cassie is not kaput. Rumor has long put Diddy in a romantic relationship with his protege Cassie. Though they have consistently denied the affair, the pair was photographed last May snuggling in New York City’s Central Park in a manner that appeared to be much more than business.

Still, the evidence is hard to ignore, and now Cassie has allegedly added fuel to the fire with an offhand comment made at a party in New York this week. The 21-year-old singer was leaving the birthday celebration when she was asked to confirm reports she and Combs were no longer an item. She said, “I will confirm that rumor.” But there’s more. A party goer reportedly told Us Weekly magazine Cassie and Diddy were later seen “slipping out” together after the bash.

This f*kin for tracks poster-child better watch her back. Given Diddy’s track record, she could be in for a world of hurt.

Suspect Quote of the Day

EMTE

Some random media outlet released this alleged quote from Tracey Edmonds:

“Diddy is the funniest man I’ve ever met. I’m so lucky to find someone so soon after Eddie. It’s early days – we’ve only been on three or four dates – but he’s whisked me off my feet. I don’t know about wedding bells but he’s definitely the man for me.”

Yeah right, that ish doesn’t even sound right. Last time we checked Tracey was “trying something new“. Besides, we all know who Diddy has eyes for…(see below)

Puffy hosted a party in Ledyard, Connecticut this weekend for the opening of the MGM Grand at Foxwoods. We hear that Cassie was in the place with him but Diddy made sure her ass was hidden so no photographers could get to her. It’s a damn shame they gotta stay creepin like that. And just it was all good just a week ago when he was sportin around Kim Porter at the Hollywood Star ceremony fronting like they were a family. SMH.

Cassie on the Come-Up?

Cassie and Diddy Drinking

According to Diddy, Cassie is new and improved:

“Although pop star Cassie had a huge hit in 2006 with her single ‘Me and You’, critics and fans alike were appalled by her severe vocal challenges during a string of promotional performances on TV. Her label head, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, tells Billboard that Cassie has since stepped up her game and has songs on her sophomore album that will impress the haters.

Explaining Cassie’s poor performances during the promotion of her self-titled debut album, Diddy says: ‘I just don’t think she was ready. I think that we threw her into the spotlight without the artist development — that goes on with a lot of new artists. We pulled out, we took our time, we developed her for like, a year-and-a-half. People are just going to see her there and be like, ‘Wow, she’s really cocooned into a butterfly.'”

We’ll just have to wait and see on that one. So far, it looks like the f**kin for tracks approach is really working out for ole girl.
