Diddy Offers $200 Million for Fuse TV
Fuse TV is up for grabs, and a few insiders say Sean “Diddy” Combs has his eye on it. Puff made it rain with a $200 million bid on the network, with plans to expand the reach of his own poppin’ new music station, Revolt TV. Fuse is available in approximately 74 million homes while Revolt gets jiggy in about 22.8 million. Thing is, some are saying the bid is pretty low for the channel considering the number of households it reaches, and the original asking price (about 400 million Benjamins, baby). Looks like Sean better comb up some more cash if he plans on remixing this cable company.

I don’t know what it is, but I’m trying to figure out why the Detroit diva played the Philly powerhouse the way she did at the White House’s Women of Soul concert this past weekend. Ms. LaBelle reached out her hand to extend some love to the seasoned singer as she strolled into the concert hall, but the electricity in her shade held enough power to shock Patti’s hair piece back into one of those crazy peacocks she used to rock back in the day. Seems like maybe Ms. Franklin is taking this “queen” thing a little too seriously.
