I accidentally surfed onto two back-to-back episodes of MTV's "P. Diddy: Making of the Band, Part II". It was so fascinating that I couldn't turn away. P. Diddy comes over as intense, hyperactive, hyperverbal, frenetic and extremely perfectionistic task master...no wonder he is an unquestionable success. He set high standards both for the contestants and for the MTV staff, whom he believed were not finding genuinely marketable talents. What was especially fascinating were what I call "P. Diddyisms"--his philosophy of success and what it takes to make it big in the entertainment industry. His tirelessness and demanding objectives demonstrate how he lives his own P. Diddyisms to the fullest. He walks his talk---no question about it. Anyone who wants to get an inside look at what P.Diddy says is needed to reach the top in music should watch this show. I felt after two episodes that this show is much more "real" than American Idol. These contestants will not be coddled. "Making the Band, Part II" actually has much in common with the WWF's "MTV Tough Enough," a reality series about pro -wrestling hopefuls. P. Diddy expects absolute dedication, loyalty, and sweat equity from participants. He will not tolerate defiance, lack of gratitude or egos. One example: A strong contestant was booted from the final selection because she was hungry and wanted to leave the audition site to grab some food. That really sparked Diddy's ire. He crossed her off the list the minute he heard about her request. This show offers a no holds barred look at Diddy and the rap music industry. It is far more realistic and revealing than the first "Making the Band" that spawned the boy band O-Town (who have just released their second album.) I'm hooked after just two episodes.
