False Alarm

Nicki did not Dump Diddy

There was a statement released by Young Money and Nicki Minaj today AND IT WAS FAKE announcing that Diddy and Nicki were no longer manager and client.

Young Money's Statement:
Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown breakout superstar NICKI MINAJ has decided to dismiss rap mogul, Sean “P diddy Combs” as her music manager and has recently signed a new deal with MEGA MANAGER, BENNY MEDINA, whose current and past clients include Multi Grammy Award winning recording artist, MARIAH CAREY, GWEN STEFANI, BRANDY, AND MORE.

Nicki’s Statement:
“By now, everyone should now that I am really strict when it comes to my representation. I had sympathy for Sean however I feel as if I haven’t gotten the guidance the manager is supposed to give his client. Personally, I feel like I’m being managed by mother. Even if you play the smallest role on my team, I wish to see progress. I’d like to thank him for everything he has done for me; for taking me under his wing. I wish him the best with repping Rick. But now that my album is about to drop, its time to get serious and stop playing games. If I could turn back time…I wouldn’t have made the decision to let Troy go.”

"I had sympathy for Sean..."

Oh well, like Kanye says, "You gon' be hot a little while, I'mma be rich forever." I'm sure Diddy ain't even sweating this. Yeah this is bad PR for him now, but really though? How long is Nicki going to last in the game? Am I the only one who notices that her features on other songs are hot, but her solo stuff is extra wack with a side of fries?

So she got out before the career killer decided to bring the axe down on her head.

What idiot would want to be managed by P Career Ending Diddy... the last time puffy supported an artist the artist went to Cali and got shot.... dead....

As for Minaj - what career - when the stupid ass juvenile consumers wake up and realize the music industry has been duping them on this bubble gum watered down shit they call hip hop and stop supporting you then you'll be wishing you had a career to be managed.

she did the right thing. mary j learned fast in the beginning too and she got rid of puff. that nigga was making all the money but she couldn't pay rent, yet she was a hood star. puff is grimey so anybody with sense will run or stay away from him.

dude is a jew to his dishonest heart.

sounds like diddy did something grimey that pissed her off. she just told more info then needed.

LOL @ Diddy , you know you no longer hot when the chicks you paying aint sticking around!

Good for a young artist to recognize all Diddy is looking for is face time on camera. Do your thing Nicki. You don't need his negativity surrounding you.

Anonymous said...

LMFAO @ this fake ass dick swallowing WHORE. She has some fucking nerve with her no-talent ass.

Benny Medina? Oh ok, let's see how that goes. Please ask J. Lo, Usher and Mariah what that was like, boo. This nigga doesn't give a fuck about your turd ass. He just knows you have cross-over appeal and wants in on it.

Let me guess, Nikki, he sat you down and laid out an entire career for you complete with millions of dollars, sold0out stadium tours and your own clothing line, right? Then he said he could get you in the studio with whoever you want, right? Then he told you to move to LA permanently and start "going out" right?

Yeah, heard it all before. He was ruined so many lives.

Diddy may be shady when it comes to billing artists but he knows EVERYBODY and would keep her street cred high. Benny is going to make sure all of those fat, black girls that love her so much are completely shut out of in-stores, backstages, etc. She will no longer be a rapper but a "pop act". She will look even more ridiculous.

If you look at how well Ross is doing you'd stick with Diddy. 50 tried everything he could to annihilate this dude and now 50 is the one with more friends on twitter than in real life. Diddy is annoying but he LOVES THE BUSINESS. He was working hard for her. What an ungrateful little hoodrat this girl is. For all the whoring she has done to get where she is she should be grateful.

And no, I'm not Puff nor do I work for him. I'm just an insider who knows how bullshit Nikki is. Ask Deb (Waka's mama) who really made Nikki. Nikki turns on the people that work the hardest for her and then claims she's not "seeing results". Bitch, you chose to put out a wack ass single with Will.I.Ain't.

Dumb cocksucking bitch.

I'm Just Sayin... said...

Maybe she actually READ her contract and wasn't star struck with the Diddy image. It would be nice if some of these artists actually review their contracts before happily signing all their hard work away.

Example: If I scream "Baaaaad Boy" on your single, I will be compensated $XX,XXX. If you use my Bentley or my likeness in your video, I will be compensated....

At the end of the day, they have a few hits, sell a bunch of singles, and have to move back in with their mamas. All the while, their one hits are still playing on the radio years later.

Anonymous said...

If she's ready to go to the next level, Benny is the one to take her there. But then again, she probably wanted to be introduced to the real players in the secret societies and Puffy ain't it.

Choco said...

Considering Diddy has the worst rep for managing she should've known but that sympathy word hit below the belt...

Anonymous said...

I think that she will be much better off for the remainder of her career ....(how ever much longer that is...) with Benny Medina that with Sean - I have to always be the biggest star at BadBoy - Combs.

Somewhere in Whiteville Lane Lil Kim is melting from laughing and crying so damn hard at this statement Nicki wrote about Diddy.

@12:14

Actually you can leave J.Lo out that convo, since her career fell off when Medina left. Notice how things started going her way again when she hired Medina again -- now she's on American Idol, and whether or not AI wins or loses, she still walks away with a $12 milli paycheck.

Also if it weren't for Medina, Mariah never would've dropped Emancipation of Mimi..but she dropped his ass after that album and look where she is now. Brandy also let Medina go and look where she is.

Fuck! There goes the best chance of this industry whore disappearing as quickly as possible.
Damn it all! Quick, someone have her do a single with CB and see what happens to her popularity then.

Anonymous said...

Although I believe puffy is a career killer I don't think it's a good look to put out such a nasty press release on someone who didn't have the time to hurt your career. She made it seem like she did diddy a favor. One thing I've leaned is that the people you work with going up are the same you see going down. She might need diddy in the future. Also Benny is great but he's been fired in the past as well. Benny is known for taking people so far. They let him go do ok for a while and some have hired him back like Mariah and Jlo

No u are not the only one that notices that. That is why I said I would take baby steps with her. Although she did some #boss chit today...her music is still garbage.

I know Diddy is shady, but was he the one that got Nicki on the Video Music Awards and Good Morning America? If so, she needs to be kissing his ass for introducing her to mainstream America.

Actually, you CAN leave J. Lo as an example because Benny screwed her over like whoa when she FIRED him because his ass didn't like the "Bennifer" era. Not to mention the fact that much of J. Lo's career success came from Kevin Huvane and others at CAA and Medina really only helped her out on the music side. Not too hard when Payola was in full effect, eh?

Also, you can thank LA REID for Emancipation, NOT BENNY. Please. Everyone knows Benny hasn't "made" a star since Will SMith. He is still riding on that. Everyone else was "broken in" by someone else and Benny comes along for the career kill. And trust, he WILL kill Nicki's career.

Brandy let Benny go because he was not working for her. He only likes clients when they are 100% scandal free. He can't handle bad press like most GOOD managers can. And have you forgotten that SONJA is the one who was always Brandy's OFFICIAL manager and Benny was just a consultant to them?

He's a rat, everyone knows it. He's just looking to get paid so he can keep his boy toys in Louis and Gucci.

EVERYBODY who was had relations with Puffy is no longer EATING - they are standing in the bread and unemployment line. And he had many with a lot of talent. Carl Thomas was bad - Total, just to name the two I like. Cassie is still eating because - never mind - but she's still eating off Diddy's plate. Nicki is talentLESS, this baby doll mess will go away just like those shiny suits Diddy use to wear. (GONE) she needs to deal with Mr. Medina for now because that's about as hot as her career is going to be (a hot now minute)

Anonymous said...

@1:01pm

Actually Nicki's spots on Regis & Kelly and Letterman were booked via her label, not Diddy. But they sure as hell used his name to co-sign her so those white folks would take a bite. Don't forget she also had Will.I.Ain't on stage with her during those performances. He is a much bigger name. She is still a 106 & Porch artist to most people.

Benny is promising her Lady Gaga-like fame, LMAO. Gaga is a talented artist. She's a freak show but she is TALENTED. What the hell can Nicki do during a stadium tour? Rap her 50-11 verses from other people's songs? LOL

HoodRat said...

@1:28, yes fuk Benny Medina. he managed diddy at one time and that shyt went left when they couldn't see eye to eye. wtf happened, i wish we had the whole story. im going to eat my reeces puffs, fuk this article. i dont give a fuk about nicki. she needs to learn to be more professional

For the past 20 yrs., I don't see why anybody would want to do business with him. His productions are OK, too many ppl cry broke or have money problems afterward and he has too many projects (designer, actor, ??) going on. Even if he stays up 20 hrs a day (*sings White Lines*), his crash and burn is around the corner.

BTW, what happened to Dirty Money/Filthy Coupons? Seems like he intro'd them in April of this yr and now he's on some new band already. I'd drop him too.

Benny and Tyra fell out too!

Anonymous said...

I don't think you can blame Diddy for everybody's career faults.

112? They had a good run, but so did Jagged Edge and Dru Hill...who's checking for boy groups in 2010?

Total? They were never a huge success to begin with (barely making platinum when, at that time, even mediocre folks were 3x platinum AT LEAST) and like 112, girl groups had their time but nobody is checking for that genre anymore.

Faith? Fucking around with that coke is what did her in.

Carl Thomas? A discount Brian McKnight who was lucky to make it as far as he did to begin with.

Mase? C'mon son. Y'all act like he would be on Jay-Z level if things worked out. That nigga had lazy rhymes, sounded learning disabled in interviews and was never destined to be more than a sidekick.

Danity Kane and Dream both got sidelined by internal issues within the group. Plus if you look at Danity Kane, making it off a reality show is a 50/50 shot. You got your Kelly Clarksons and you got your Taylor Hicks.

Cassie? Played the game and lost. That's her own fault. She shoulda stuck with Ryan Leslie.

Diddy is a mess -- a HOT mess -- but he is not 100% to blame for all the downfall of these individuals' careers.

Anonymous said...

Puffy is bad for images...Amen!!! And careers...your bank account and any thing else non-tanigible...

I think that is the problem for Shitty Diddy. He does not know how to be a professional. He is a thug that can only represent liquior commericals, host parties and exchange asses like party favors. Always someone baby's daddy... If you ask me, she so far has gotten it right as it regards leaving that clown alone. He will run her life and career into the ground. More than likely, she has not slept with him, so for a black man, who cannot separate business from pleasure. There comes the strife. Y'all can say, whoever about this little girl but business matters aint an issue with her.

I'm Just Sayin'.. said...

1:50..It's just that he has SOOOO many failed acts. Not that he is always the reason their careers went MIA.

You have any insight on the Lox? Jadakiss is/was a decent lyricist.

Anonymous said...

Janelle Monae seems to be doing alright under Puffy's wing. She could switch up the wardrobe a bit though.

Anonymous said...

@1:59

Jada is fine, I think (in my opinion) was that when the Lox was on Bad Boy, there were TOO many people on the label and Diddy was only focusing on who was hot at the time (himself, Mase and Faith) and that left them hanging a bit. But that's with any label, honestly. So yeah, Diddy did them wrong in that regard, but Jada is maintaining because he has talent as an MC. The same can't be said about half the other folks on Bad Boy from 95-99.

I'm Just Sayin'.. said...

@2:05... The Lox had the same arguments that other BB artists had. They weren't getting any money.

I know most of the fault falls on the artists, I guess those shiny suits caused them to be blinded on contract signing day.

Anonymous said...

1:50 1:59 said it best that it was sooooooo freaking maning. What's the saying 1 is a conciedence two's a trend three is believing Well three is the case for diddy. Not all of his acts were bad he had some very good act besides BIG such as faith, carl thomas, Lox, Craig Mack, and others. But what happend he screwed them and was about to screwed BIG but he knew that BIG was the main attraction and he would sliently threaten puff by showing up to his concerts 5-10 minuted before he actually start necause puff wouldn't pay him so thats how he got puff. And you should get that book "Dancing with the Devil" and it tells about how puff screwed him and many artists. Now I'm not a nikki minaj fan but she at least appeared to gave some business sense in dumping puff.

Anonymous said...

@2:14

Yes I am familiar with the book Dancing with the Devil, but I won't read it? Why? It just doesn't seem credible. Now, if Faith, Carl or the 112 boys want to come out with a tell-all about some of the things at Bad Boy, I'll listen. (I know Faith wrote a book, but I think it was mostly about life with Biggie and ish. I don't really care about that.)

What I'm saying is, Bad Boy had their peak in the 90s and now EVERYBODY from the 90s are irrelevant whether they were with Bad Boy or not. And the artists on Bad Boys aren't the only ones broke. This is why Toni is in bankruptcy for the second time in a decade, Brandy is Dancing for the Paycheck...oops I mean Stars, Kandi is doing Real Housewives. Hell, even Jermaine Dupri is broke nowadays.
