* Rap mogul Diddy is laughing a new cologne titled "I Am King" to celebrate Barack Obama's presidential win. According to various reports, Diddy will make the historical moment a theme for the campaign.
* Kanye West had this to say on being arrested in London last Fridayafter leaving a nightclub: "Here's what happened. When I left the club, I was encountered by a thirsty paparazzo as usual. He felt he had more rights to my space than me, so I put my hand up to prevent him from taking my image. I didn't assault him but merely putt my hand up to cover his lens. My security yelled, 'get the camera off him.' I guess in all the commotion the camera scraped his nose. They placed me in handcuffs and drove me to the station. They spoke about how this was obviously a publicity stunt by the photographer but they still had to go though the motions. When I got back to the hotel, there were paparazzi hanging over the bridge above the hotel trying to get a shot of me getting out the police van. Even though I wasn't charged, the damage was done. Sure enough the next morning, plastered across every media outlet - 'Kanye Gets Arrested.' It didn't matter that I wasn't charged or the fact that I hadn't assaulted anyone. All that mattered was that I was arrested."
* It seems producer Scott Storch is suffering in the recession too - he's put his Palm Island waterfront home up for sale on Craigslist with an asking price of $9 million dollars.
