Will Tidey, writing for the international edition of CNN, has an interesting take on Ian Poulter.
The article begins: "One is a hip-hop superstar and music mogul who dazzles audiences with his lyrical prowess, the other is a gregarious golfer who fights with the world's best to sink balls in the fewest shots."
And just who is this hip-hop superstar Tidey references? None other than, Sean 'P Diddy' Combs. Tidey goes on to write that the two have more in common that you might imagine.
"That's because Combs and Poulter -- who are both ferocious self-publicists, lovers of the high life and boast their own clothing lines -- are two examples of celebrities building business around their personalities."
The article goes on to talk about Poulter's signature apparel line, his luxury car collection and the way he's reached out to his fans via Twitter. And true to form, Poulter tweeted about the article just a few minutes ago:
“Nice piece in CNN International Edition. P Diddy of Golf Thanks CNN nice compliment.:
