While Sean “Diddy” Combs was on Access Hollywood Live Tuesday promoting Revolt TV’s upcoming music conference, the hip-hop mogul was put on the spot with his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez‘s new Iggy Azalea-featuring “Booty” video and served up an abundance of accolades over that famous derrière.
“Oh my God, oh my God! I am so lucky to have that great woman in my history,” Diddy said as the video played. “She is one of the greatest I’ve ever seen. Go girl!”
Watch the full interview here:
When asked whether his expressed admiration should be interpreted as any interest in reigniting the flame that lasted two years, starting in 1999, he said, “Oh no, no. we’re great as friends. I’m great as a fan,” he said. “That [‘Booty’ video] is in heavy rotation on Revolt, by the way!”
The interviewer surely didn’t realize Diddy’s been linked to Cassie since 2007.
Still, Diddy continued to play ball, saying, “[Lopez’s booty] is great. It’s a work of art. It’s something that will go down in history. Also her talent, her drive, her determination. She will never give up. She’s a great friend of mine… that thing is just incredible.”
He said it’s even better than Kim Kardashian‘s famous button: “No disrespect Kanye and Kim, but that thing right there is something special.”
Well it seems like the feeling is mutual, because Wednesday Lopez joined E! and addressed the matter, clearly pleased. She said, “It’s awesome! Here’s the thing about me and Puff … we always root for each other, we always support each other. It’s great after all these years to know and watch him do all that he’s done.”
J.Lo continued, “To see him do all that he’s done makes me proud and to know that he’s still in the game so strong and to know that he supports me and is proud of me is a beautiful thing.”
