UCLA is standing by its decision, and now, so are its students!
Despite the public outcry regarding the university's decision to grant Diddy's son Justin Combs with a $54,000 football scholarship, many of the student-athletes currently enrolled are defending him, as well, and maintain the amount of money the rapper makes is a non-issue!
Diddy's son, Justin Combs has just received a full scholarship to UCLA where he will play on the school's football team.
It's not just about sports though - Justin has the brains too. He has a 3.75 GPA and is the head of the African American Society at his school, Iona Prep.
Daddy Diddy couldn't be more proud! He announced his excitement and in a press release:
"As a parent, today is one of the proudest moments of my life. This is everything a father could want for his son, for him to excel at what he loves to do and is truly passionate about. Justin is a shining example of what hard work, determination and a strong mentality can achieve. I am honored to call him my son and am happy that he is fulfilling his dream."
Those are definitely the sentiments of a proud poppa! So happy to hear how much he supports his son.
Martin Bashir did an interview with Diddy and when his children came up, Martin asked the hard questions — specifically questioning Diddy's decision to give his 16-year-old son Justin a $400,000 Maybach for his birthday.
Check out Diddy in the hot seat above — it gets good around the 6:00 mark!
The We Can’t Stop singer interviewed with Rolling Stone magazine for their July 4th issue, and revealed her fairly liberal thoughts on drugs and alcohol.
Given her stoner reputation, we’re not totally surprised. Though, when asked to clarify her penchant for weed, she said:
"You can't ask someone that and expect them to say yes... I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,' so people can put it together for themselves."
That sounds fairly straightforward to us. Mileybird then went ahead to state that she thinks there are things much, much worse than a little bit of the green stuff:
"I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana -- people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care... I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed."
"As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it's legal in the state of California. So I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."
Well, Miley, marijuana isn’t exactly legal in California unless you have a prescription, so we’re not entirely sure what you mean. But, okay...
As for her transition from Disney teen idol to mature pop star, she said:
