WENN is reporting that Sean “Diddy” Combs’ pop group Danity Kane has lost its third member in less than a month after singer Shannon Bex decided to bounce.
The group, put together by Combs for his reality TV series “Making The Band,” is now down to two remaining original members after singers Aubrey O’Day and D. Woods’ were fired by the mogul in the finale of “Making the Band 4” earlier this month.
According to New York’s Z100 radio host Elvis Duran, Bex said she opted to cut ties with the group because of constant bickering between remaining members and Diddy.
Diddy, meanwhile, is reportedly planning to release an album filled entirely with songs enhanced by the Auto-Tune vocal effect popularized by T-Pain. In fact, the mogul said he is collaborating with T-Pain to develop more unique ways to utilize the contraption.
“It’s electro Hip-Hop soul,” Diddy told InTouch Weekly about the as-yet-untitled project. “T-Pain gave me permission to use the vocoder, the Auto-Tune, and he showed me various tricks that nobody knows but him and myself.”
Ever since T-Pain resurrected the Auto-Tune from two years ago from its groundbreaking run with Roger Troutman in the early 80s, the device has become a must-have in hip hop by such artists as Lil Wayne (“Lollipop”), Kanye West (“Love Lockdown”), Snoop Dogg (“Sexual Seduction”), and G Unit (“Rider Pt. 2”).
