Rap mogul Sean “Puffy” Combs, 44, was seen chilling in the meatpacking district in New York City, just 1 day after he supposedly proposed to his longtime concubine, Cassie Ventura, on social media. Combs tweeted a digital image of a 14-carat diamond ring along with the caption, “Baby do you like it?”
Somehow, Combs’ Twitter and Instagram.com followers took that to mean he was proposing to Ventura, a one-hit wonder whose last hit is a distant memory.
Meanwhile, sources say Combs is struggling to attract eyeballs to his Revolt TV all-music cable channel. So it’s not a stretch to assume Combs is attention seeking by posting a photo of an engagement ring and letting imaginations run wild.
Combs has targeted the coveted 18-34 year old demographic — young people who no longer watch TV for new music videos when they have other, more portable options to choose from.
The backlash began even before Sean’s music channel launched.
According to Dan Cryan, an analyst with HIS Screen Digest, that demographic is turning away from television broadcasts the most. The key demographic audience prefers to get its music and news online. Hopefully, that trend will continue.
During the new music channel’s kickoff, Puffy addressed the audience, “To all the dreamers out there, all the believers out there, all the people that want a change in music, the time has come now.” Does this mouth breather even understand what he’s saying? How is having a music channel going to change the music itself? All he is offering is a channel where people can tune in and see the videos for the same eight acts that get all the airplay on terrestrial radio. So what? Source
