Diddy shocked fans last week when he revealed on social media that he was about to undergo his fourth surgery in two years. "Pray for ya boy," the 50-year-old rap mogul said in a video while apologizing for missing a scheduled appearance in San Francisco. “I’m clumsy. I trip. I fall. I fall in holes. It’s always been like that...This is God’s work to slow me down, take better care of body and eat right and just stop treating my body like a machine.” He added, "Please no sympathy, no sympathy. I did it to myself by accident...This is going to be my last surgery, I promise.” After surgery, Diddy also promised that he's bringing back his reality competition show, Making the Band. "The show is coming back. We have our first auditions in Atlanta next weekend," he explained. "I'm looking for singers. It’s time we bring R&B back. Male and female singers. Any race, creed, color, sexuality, but you have to be able to sing, you have to be able to dance. I’m looking for future superstars...Think *NSync, 112, Destiny’s Child, Fifth Harmony, The Supremes, The Temptations--so if you can sing, make sure you send us your auditions socially or in North Carolina, my man DaBaby is going to be a judge in that. Houston. Alright? See y’all soon. Peace.”
