Hall interviewed Combs on The Arsenio Hall Show. They talk about the type of products Hall suggests he market to show his marketing genius and they also drink vodka together. Combs disagrees with Hall’s marketing advice.
We got a good thing going Arsenio. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. We don’t wanna hard sell. We want to keep it classy. At the end of the day we just on this black glamour, man, and it’s smooth and it’s tasteful and we need to dress up sometimes and take your lady out, take her dancing
They talk about his memory of his father and how he got upset for the first time recently as he thinks about his father.
The way he dressed, his whole charisma, his style, his swag and so I celebrate him you know, it’s in my genes. He had a hustler’s spirit. It’s just a blessing and that’s why it’s so important to me with my six kids to make sure that they know that I’m there for them.
Combs gives interview to Elle about if losing his father at the age of three.
A couple years ago, my psychologist came to the conclusion that this is one of the big problems I have as far as maturing in a relationship. After my father got killed, my mother said, “I’m never getting married again. I don’t want men around my children.” So I’ve never actually been able to witness a husband and wife’s love. Sometimes when I see it with my friends, I just find myself staring like a child, because I’ve never actually seen it before. It’s one of the sad parts of my life.
Combs talks to Winfrey for O Magazine about his career goals and dreams.
I want to have a cultural impact. I want to be an inspiration, to show people what can be done. I’ve always been a daydreamer. When the other kids were playing, I was listening to the roar at Yankee Stadium I was always attracted to the roar of the crowd. I wanted to know: What would make somebody roar like that? I was always looking at the hustle and bustle of people working. I wanted to work.
