Rising fuel prices are a major pain for most of us, but you just know things are going sour when even the super-rich have to give up their private jet and travel on a commercial airline. Puff Daddy/Diddy/P.Daddy/P.Diddy/Puffy has decided that the cost of a private jet trip from L.A. to New York is just too high, even for him ($200,000 r/t), and he will be joining us on scheduled commercial flights for the time being. So, next time you are sitting up front on American Airlines, keep your eyes open, perhaps you’ll catch some of the bling!
Instead of whining, he’s even trying to fix the situation, and has made a video clip for his “brothers and sisters in Saudi Arabia” asking for some free oil for his jet. He’s also asking us to tell the next president to lower gas prices. I’m sure that will go a long way to getting rid of these horrible fuel surcharges.

Usually, I wouldn’t bother opening the forwarded crap my friends feel the need to flood my email with, but this one caught my eye. Why? Because it is travel related and I thought even if I didn’t want to know or care there is someone out there drooling and waiting for this type of material to pop up in the blogosphere. In other words it is my loyal duty to Diddy lovers across the planet to spread the news.
So where was I? Ah, Yes…If all the world could have the luxury of spending $16,200 dollars on a private jet to have their excess Louis Vuitton luggage transported from France to Rome, what might the world be like? Apparently Diddy (also known as P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, & Sean Combs) dropped this kind of dough on a private jet when he was informed there wasn’t enough room on his private flight to lug it all.
Lifestyles of the rich and famous – I just don’t get it at times. Diddy if you’re out there listening or reading I’d love to skate off to France and Rome. I’m more than willing to stay in hostels and pay my airfare over if you’d like to donate $16,200 to SallieMae, my sweet student loan provider – yeah. Um, call me.
Tribune is featuring an article by Rosemary
McClure, a Los Angeles Times staff writer who went on assignment to the Caribbean island of Anguilla, fast becoming
the hottest vacation spot for the Hollywood jetset. She admits she was shocked to find that Anguilla isn’t a
tropical paradise — it was, in her words, rather "homely" — but what it lacks in verdent beauty it
apparently makes up for in elegant luxury. Besides, the island has apparently become a favourite of the likes of
Sean "Diddy" Combs and Meryl Streep — surely they can’t be wrong.
Anyway, if you’re interested in
a Caribbean island vacation, be sure to check the article
out — and don’t miss, at the very end of the piece, McClure’s travel tips and where to stay.
