Sean “Diddy” Combs is known for moving fans through his music, but this time his supporters were moved to mock his motivational speech about how crawling creatures compelled him to live his best life.
The 51-year-old rapper faced off in an Instagram post sharing secrets of his successful hustle to live fabulously with an infinity pool as his backdrop while munching on a mango. But he admits that the road to living a champagne life was peppered with roadblocks and roaches.
“One day when I was growing up, I woke up and there was 15 roaches on my face. At that moment I said hell no, I refuse to live like this. Work hard, believe in your crazy dreams… AND NEVER SETTLE! #LOVE,” he wrote in a post.
“You can do it. You can be whoever you want,” he said in a video.
“You can be eating mango too, with the ocean as your backyard. I ain’t special,” he continued. “I just want it bad, you feel me? I will not allow myself to not have mango. I hustle hard, you know what I mean?” he said before jumping feet first into an infinity pool.

All due respect to Diddy, anyone with more than three roaches on his face is too busy swatting and screaming to get an accurate count.
