Diddy Is a “Gatsby Figure” Now?!

In what’s surely the greatest insult to my favorite. book. of. all. time., Diddy described himself as the New Gatsby (basically) in the horrific new guide “How To. . . Party Like P. Diddy” (read: lots of white, lots of pretension).

It makes me super-depressed to think that he puts so much thought behind it all:

“Wearing white is not only sexy; it means everyone is unified both visually and emotionally. It puts everyone on the same level. At my ‘Harlem To Hollywood’ party […], the guests – including Victoria Beckham, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Jamie Foxx, Eva Longoria and actor Derek Luke [who plays Diddy in a forthcoming biopic of rap artist The Notorious B.I.G.] – played croquet on the lawn.

I liked the idea of croquet because it’s a very Gatsby-type activity and I take pride in being a Gatsby figure.”

That’s it, my first editions are getting hidden until I can forget about this.
