About Donnie Klang
Although his perpetual name-changing may suggest otherwise, Diddy is apparently a man who knows what he wants. Case in point: He thought Making the Band 4 contestant Donnie Klang had so much potential that he broke the mold of his own show, offering Klang a solo contract with Bad Boy, while the other, less lucky finalists got stuck forming another boy band. Diddy may have given Donnie his big break, but the Long Island boy had always planned on heading in that direction anyway. His pre-MTB activities included baby-modeling, occasional acting, singing in a high school R&B group and attending college (major: business, minor: business). Really, the logical next step was reality TV. Bad Boy released Klang's Just a Rolling Stone in 2008.
