Diddy had some words of wisdom to share with fans this week, but they may not be quite what you’d expect.
“One day when I was growing up, I woke up and there was 15 roaches on my face,” he wrote on Instagram. “At that moment I said hell no, I refuse to live like this. Work hard, believe in your crazy dreams… AND NEVER SETTLE!”
The sage advice accompanied an Instagram video of the rapper hanging by the side of his pool, chowing down on some juicy mango.
“You can do it, you can be whoever you want! You can be eating mango, too, with the ocean as your backyard!” he said. “I want it bad. I’m not gonna allow myself to not have mango.”
While the content of the Instagram post and its caption may be a little odd, it’s actually hard not to be inspired by anyone living their best poolside life with a fancy tray of fruit at their disposal.
But even though Diddy didn’t make mention of the 15 roaches that allegedly inspired him to rise to greatness as a child, that was obviously going to be exactly what Twitter latched onto as “Diddy” started trending after the post.
Not everyone bought his story, but people had a lot to say about it either way.
