Rapper Xzibit has lashed out at media outlets for putting what he labeled “spin” on comments he made about mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs.
When Xzibit recently appeared on Sirius Satellites’ Foxxhole radio where he shared a story about his New Year’s party with Combs and Karrine “Superhead” Steffans.
The trio then headed to a New Year’s Party in Miami, which Xzibit allegedly witnessed two men kissing and another man dancing completley naked.
“We take off. We leave the club directly. I didn’t say peace to nobody. It was suspect,” Xzibit said in the previous interview.” X addressed the issue today on his myspace blog, claiming the media had taken his statements out of context.
“Wow, so I wake up this morning and my phone is going nuts,” Xzibit wrote. “I turn on the computer and find all this shit about me ‘throwing puffy under the gay bus’ whatever that means. All this SPIN that you journalist are putting on the statements I made on a radio show to DIRECTLY effect a guy in a manor not intended is wrong.”
Xzibit said he received a call from Combs himself, who clarified that the venue was an after-hours spot called Space.
“The rumor mill that has ground this bulls**t out to be the s**t storm that it is, is doing so on its own accord. Like I said at the top, I have no beef with Diddy. BUT WAIT… a bigger problem I see is the negative stance these Hip-Hop sites and blog sites are taking when speaking of gay people in general. All I can say to that is: PEOPLE GROW UP! I do NOT like to spread hate and make it a point not to do so, so this is not the way I intended this interview to unfold. You heard it directly from me ladies and gents, Im looking forward to the issues at hand that really mean something to both my fans and Diddy’s as well: ART & MUSIC.”
