Dawn Richard Says Diddy Used To Tell Girls On His Show They’re ‘Ugly’ And Needed Plastic Surgery

The Danity Kane Singer Recalls Diddy Making Heartless Comments About Female Contestants On His MTV Reality Show ‘Making The Band’ And Bullying Her On The Last Day Before He Sent Her Home.

As P. Diddy was gearing up to launch a new “Making the Band”, former contestant Dawn Richard opened up on her past experience with the music mogul on the MTV reality show and it’s not so pleasant. “He would bring us in the room and say, ‘You’re ugly. You gotta fix your face.’ Wild stuff,” she said on “Wild Wayne Unchained” podcast.

“He was preparing us for what the industry would be,” the Danity Kane singer continued. “But if we would have done what we did in this time, Puff would have been crucified. Because you can’t talk to women now – what he was saying, it was aggressive. It was really aggressive. It was crazy.”

“The last time before he picked the band he made me change twelve times,” she recalled. “I just knew I was going home, the reason why he made me change was going to pick me the whole time but he made me feel like s*** and be stressed out because he wanted to see if I’d be off my game. .. and he would be like she’s not worth it.”

Despite her less than positive dealing with Diddy, Richard thanked him for teaching her to “have the tools to be ready; lessons, bread crumbs that I will take.”

“He’s exactly who everyone thinks he is,” she said. “He didn’t change. He was exactly what I thought he would be. He gave me an opportunity and it was up to me to figure out what to do with that. He didn’t owe me anything, nobody really does in this industry. You’ve got to figure that out for yourself. If you’re smart, you’ll make an opportunity happen for yourself.”

Neighbors, our good sis Dawn Richard sat down for an exclusive interview on Wild Wayne Unchained podcast and opened up about her music career, and what life was really like with Diddy. It was very tea spilling conversation. _________________________________________________ Dawn had nothing but nice things to say about Diddy in the beginning, giving him props for preparing her for this cut throat industry, but she also didn’t hold back about how his methods were a little harsh. _________________________________________________ “He would bring us in the room and say, ‘You’re ugly. You gotta fix your face.’ Wild stuff. But he was preparing us for what the industry would be,” she said. “But if we would have done what we did in this time, Puff would have been crucified. Because you can’t talk to women now — what he was saying, it was aggressive. It was really aggressive. It was crazy.” _________________________________________________ Even through all the bullsh*** from breaking up Danity Kane, and ending Dirty Money, Dawn still has major respect for Diddy. _________________________________________________ “This is what I appreciate about him. He’s exactly who everyone thinks he is,” she said. “He didn’t change. He was exactly what I thought he would be. He gave me an opportunity and it was up to me to figure out what to do with that. He didn’t owe me anything, nobody really does in this industry. You’ve got to figure that out for yourself. If you’re smart, you’ll make an opportunity happen for yourself.” _________________________________________________ “Puff, it was not all great, but man did he teach me to have the tools to be ready; lessons, bread crumbs that I will take,” she added. ” If I’m going to take the risk, I’m okay with whatever the outcome because I can create it. It doesn’t matter where it falls, it can be done. And if I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it at the best of my ability so that no matter if no one loves it, they can’t say it wasn’t of quality.”

While Dawn Richard still praised Diddy despite his verbal and mental abuse, some other artists were not so kind with their criticisms towards Diddy. Mase and Sauce Money called him hypocrite for preaching black excellence when he allegedly mistreated and swindled his own artists.

In an interview, Jadakiss recalled fellow rapper Styles P throwing a chair at Diddy during a heated argument when they wanted to be released from his record label Bad Boy.
