Everyone shed a tear for poor Diddy

    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Fuel prices have grounded an unexpected frequent-flyer: Diddy.

    Sean "Diddy" Combs complained about the "... too high" price of gas and pleaded for free oil from his "Saudi Arabia brothers and sisters" in a YouTube video posted Wednesday.

    The hip-hop mogul said he is now flying on commercial airlines instead of in private jets, which Combs said had previously cost him $200,000 and up for a roundtrip between New York and Los Angeles.

    "I'm actually flying commercial," Diddy said before walking onto an airplane, sitting in a first-class seat and flashing his boarding pass to the camera. "That's how high gas prices are. I'm at the gate right now. This is really happening, proof gas prices are too high. Tell whoever the next president is we need to bring gas prices down."

    It's only a matter of time before he forgets to leave the weed and gun at home and get busted at LAX.

    Poor baby. I wonder if the poorer people who eat up his "music" feel the pinch, too...have they had to move from first class back to <gasp> coach?

    Jesus, $200,000 for a flight. So what when it was only $125,000 for his flight it wasn't too much. What a bitch.

    Tell whoever the next president is? I guess Vote Or Die has died an ignominious death.

    Yesterday I heard that Puff Daddy tribute song to Biggie afte Biggie died, you know the one in which he uses the Police's "Every Breath I Take" ...

    One of the lyrics is about giving Biggie strength every day, or something to that effect, but it sounds like "schrempf," and I couldn't stop thinking, "Why would they be giving Biggie Detlef Schrempf?"

    My dad saw Diddy on the plane when he and his partner were flying to France earlier this year.
