Diddy is in talks with Time Warner Cable to launch his new network Revolt TV when it debuts this fall. This deal would give him around 25 million subscribers and place him right behind Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network and others. He is currently worth around $580 million, but this deal would catapult him into billionaire status within the next few years since he owns more than half of this new network. All he has to do is double his subscribers in the next few years and he would be mentioned in Forbes along with the other billionaires. His network will cater towards music and music videos since that’s his #1 passion. And since MTV stopped playing music videos, he has the opportunity to capture some of MTV’s audience. I hope all goes well with his new business venture and the network gives the audience a good reason to stay tuned for more!
Entertainment blog Instagram allows it’s members to take pictures, edit them and post them directly onto the site instantly. There’s a story about a guy that used Instagram to post pictures of him posing with celebrities, in which he built a fan base of 73,000 followers in a short period of time. He started off doing this for fun and used his photo-editing skills to place himself amongst some of the greatest celebrities. It has now taken off and he is looking to relocate to New York to pursue a career using his creative design and photo-editing skills. Some of the celebrities he is pictured with includes:
Jay Z and Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Drake, Rihanna, Lil Wayne and even first lady Michelle Obama. Everything is very competitive these days, and it goes to show that with persistence and creativity you can break through in any industry!!! I guess this was his “Last Straw”
