i tried my best to coorrect this, but it still sounds wierd. the following paragraph is about the great gatsby, and how many celebrities relate to Gatsby.c
can you please suggest ideas and help me make it sound more fluent. thanks!!!

P Diddy, Bill Gates, and many other celebrities are great devotees of Jay Gatsby. To get a clear picture of why so many celebrities are fascinated by Jay Gatsby, we could compare their backgrounds to Gatsby’s background. It’s evident that P Diddy and Bill Gates could relate to Gatsby’s struggles in becoming wealthy, because they were also from a middle class family like Gatsby. The common characteristic they all have is determination and motivation to succeed. P Diddy and Gatsby are comparable because they both lived through similar childhoods. Gatsby's father, Dan Cody, and P Diddy’s father, Melvin Earl Combs, were both murdered when their sons were young children. Gatsby’s father-like character was killed by a woman that was interested in all his possessions, and P Diddy’s father was killed in a shooting at a night club because of some drug dealing issue. P Diddy and Gatsby both confronted the insecure society at a very young, naive age. Unfortunately, their innocence was destroyed completely causing bigotry of those rich people in the American society. This motivated Gatsby and P Diddy in wanting to succeed to show the very society that disapproved of them.

thanks again!!!
