NEW YORK, N.Y.—Music Mogul, Sean “Diddy” Combs, one of the world’s most successful music moguls and all-around entrepreneur, offers his fans a revealing glimpse into his life and inspirations with the release of his MYMAG: Diddy Dirty Money.
Diddy now adds magazine curator/editor-in-chief to his already-impressive resume. He curated the material in Diddy Dirty Money, which is both a glossy print magazine and an interactive online experience, offering exclusive video, commentary and much more. Diddy mixes original content, including never-published photographs of him and his band members, Kalenna and Dawn with archived articles from his favorite publications.
“I’ve always loved art magazines and dope books. The DDM magazine gave us a chance to illustrate some of our personality and share pieces of some of the elements and people who have inspired our collective journey,” says Sean “Diddy” Combs. “Diddy Dirty Money features some of our all-time favorite articles, photographs mixed in with some of our own content... it’s an accurate glimpse into our respective lives.”
Kalenna and Dawn called upon Flaunt magazine to provide an insightful feature on the late fashion designer, Alexander McQueen (whose work is currently the subject of a major exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art), a Tank Girl comic (Dawn’s pick) and a feature on Marilyn Manson (chosen by Kalenna) adorn the pages of Diddy’s MYMAG.
Other content includes Vibe magazine’s first-ever magazine feature on Diddy, as well as tributes to Biggie Smalls, Mary J. Blige and Hype Williams. One of the UK’s top music magazines, NME provides content for one of Diddy’s idols, music innovator and icon, David Bowie. Rare Frank Sinatra and Rat Pack photographs are also featured in the magazine, the late Hollywood legend inspires Diddy’s style and is another one of his all-time idols.
Esteemed photographer Jean-Paul Goude lends his celebrated Grace Jones imagery; shots emblematic of a style trend that courses through Diddy Dirty Money.
