Diddy Wants You (To Play Yourself)
When the artist formerly known as Puff Daddy committed such blasphemous acts as remaking "The Message" and "Public Enemy #1" into odes of self-aggrandizement, I had placed him in the crosshairs as an enemy of the state to those that love good hip-hop music. P. Diddy is the father of the Bling Era.
By the time MTV's "Making the Band 2" came out, though, I had to grudgingly and then enthusiastically applaud the genius of P. Diddy. Of course his task of creating riveting television was made easier by a group of kids who were all too willing to look like fools, but still, there was magic in Diddy's turn as a no-nonsense svengali.
If you harbor dreams of being The One who can survive the gauntlet and attain the magic ring of success, or if you just have something to prove and think you can take all that's thrown at you in "reality" TV, you can give it a shot this weekend at Five.
This Sunday, May 22, Five will be hosting a casting call for the second season of MTV's "Making the Band 3." The line begins at 7 a.m. so no "Stars Wars"-type camping-out antics are allowed. The actual auditions start at 10 a.m.
