P. Diddy unveils diamond-encrusted iPod+hp

picIn a characteristic demonstration of his ability to personalize other people’s musical innovations, rap mogul P. Diddy used this evening to unveil a diamond-encrusted iPod at his after party for the MTV Video Music Awards. Covered with 120 diamonds, the HP-labeled iPod is now unquestionably amongst the world’s most expensive customized iPods, and each guest at the Diddy party will receive an iPod - sans ice. Additionally, iPod minis and related accessories have been given away to VIP attendees of the Video Music Awards, and to VIPs at an earlier MTV Movie Awards show this year.

I’m sorry, but wouldn’t have 120 diamonds on the outside of an iPod take away from two of it’s great charactoristics?  Fisrt, rocks are heavy.  Second, rocks aren’t flat.  So not only would an iPod like that be more attractive to a mugger, but it would also be a larger bulge in your pocket that might catch as you pull it out.  Yay retarded things you can do with money.

^your an idiot. what kind of superstar would p-diddy be toting around a regular ipod + hp? thats just what rich people do, things that seem silly to regular folks like u and me.

You seem awfully proud to be a ‘regular.’ Heck, you believe the wastefulness of human nature is absolutly exceptable! Diamonds, phffft. You gotta have that. How much does it cost? IT DOSN’T MATTER! As long as you can afford it.

Good thing you’re not the kid that’s straving to death. Maybe that makes you a superstar in a sense.

Who’s p-diddly and who gave him such a stupid name?

I sure hope the guy never has to send in his iPod to have the hard drive replaced. :P

Give these things away to people who can afford them. Great marketing.

Anything to stay in front of the camera.  He really came across as being desperate/“look at me” at the awards last night.

eh.. ok so since when has p.diddy had to worry about muggers?

Posted by t on August 30, 2004 at 6:48 AM (CDT)


The funny part is that you’re doing exactly what he wanted you to do…talk about his diamond-encrusted ipod.  If people didn’t care what he did (I’m not so sure why we have this celebrity-obsessed culture) he probably wouldn’t have even thought to get that ipod.  I personally find anything that’s been ‘bedazzled’ to be really ugly!

Posted by funny thing is on August 30, 2004 at 7:02 AM (CDT)


First you guys talk about how wasteful he is and how much he doesnt “need” it.  But then again…who NEEDS a $300 - $400 mp3 player?  That man came from nothing in Harlem NY to being a music and fashion powerhouse… He can do whatever the hell he wants.  If your that concerned about starving children, sell your ipod and donate it…hippocrites

Where are pictures of diamond studded iPod ?

Posted by Mj on August 30, 2004 at 7:26 AM (CDT)


p.diddy is such a ridiculous character.

Posted by Brayeta on August 30, 2004 at 7:26 AM (CDT)


Article is worthless without pictures…

Will the diamonds keep aftermarket cases from scratching it??? LOL

That stupid mf*cker. Ridiculous @sshole. I can’t stand that prick.

Geez… between his yacht entrance at the VMAs and the diamond-studded iPod, he’s obviously compensating for something.

Posted by Fredo in Washington, DC on August 30, 2004 at 8:33 AM (CDT)


Cool I would want that one. How about HP make me a tattoo so that I can make my Ipod a faux diamond encrusted iPod?
