Puffy's Vanity Video
Though Sean "Puffy" Combs beat bribery and weapons possession charges, TSG isn't expecting New York's celebrity set to salute the tainted rapper's March 16 acquittal. They'll probably still run the other way when Puffy's posse (now minus fall guy Jamaal "Shyne" Barrow) approaches. But Puffy hasn't always been radioactive. In fact, it was only two years ago when a cavalcade of stars happily appeared in a vanity video Puffy sent around inviting cronies to his birthday party (one such invitee leaked the video to TSG).
As icky, embarrassing productions go, the 5:37 gem below ranks up there with "Ishtar" and "Battlefield Earth."But the cast in Puffy's ego stroke is nothing short of spectacular:
