Amidst all this talk of puropose and change, it’s important to acknowledge the tragic death of Kim Porter, the mother of three of Combs’ kids. He says that loss propelled him to change his life.

On the loss of Kim Porter:

“And so, you know, I had to start to deal with it when I lost Kim. ’Cause I was like, man, you had it. I’m not saying I would do any of it differently. God willing—I would have had more time,” he says, then adds, “I look at my life as I got a second chance. I’m on my second mountain.”

You may also recall that time earlier this year when J.Lo was suddenly single again and Diddy appeared to either be trolling or shooting his shot. Diddy finally addresses that here!

On His J.Lo throwback post:

“It wasn’t no trolling involved, that’s just my friend. And I don’t have nothing to say about her relationship or her life.”

On His Return To Music And New Label:

“I’m coming back into music, you know?”

“Yeah, all R&B label, because I feel like R&B was abandoned and it’s a part of our African American culture. And I’m not signing any artists. Because if you know better, you do better. I’m doing 50-50 partnerships with pure transparency. That’s the thing. [The new label is so that] we can own the genre; we don’t own hip-hop right now. We have a chance to—and I’m going to make sure that—we own R&B.”

We love that he uses Beyoncé as the barometer for his daughters! If it ain’t good enough for Bey, it ain’t good enough for Chance, D’Lila or Jessie!
