Daddy’s Home! Diddy Announces New Stage Name For Upcoming Album

If you have been feeling nostalgic about the ‘90s, fear not, because Sean Combs, otherwise known as P.Diddy, or should we say, Puff Daddy, is taking it way back for you with a new announcement.

The 44-year-old rapper and mogul decided to switch from his millennial name of P.Diddy, back to his original stage name of Puff Daddy yesterday.

The Daily News reports, Combs decided to use his old stage name for his new album MMM. The album will be the first full work the iconic producer and occasional rapper has released in four years. The name change was revealed in the trailer for an upcoming music video for his new song, “Big Homie,” featuring rappers Rick Ross and French Montana.

Tweeting from his @IamDiddy Twitter handle, Combs set the record straight for fans and followers:

Fans reacted to the news in one of two ways: by stating that Combs is a confused mess, or by letting him know that they never stopped calling him Puff in the first place.  Not realizing how invested his fans were with his multiple aliases, Puff “P.Diddy” Daddy Combs continued to poke fun by posting both a tweet and Instagram picture that read, “#DiddyorDaddy???”



No matter if you are on #TeamDiddy or #TeamPuffy (or don’t give a you-know-what either way), set a reminder for yourself to make sure that you watch the “Big Homie” video next Tuesday (clearly this is important to…um…Puff). In the mean time, catch the trailer for it, below.

P Diddy has just launched Revolt TV, which he says will revolutionize television. Now he is already thinking about his next history-making venture.

During an interview with Bloomberg TV, Diddy revealed he wants to become the “first African-American majority owner” in the NFL.

“I’m more of an owner type of guy. So I have aspirations to become — it will happen — to become the first African-American majority owner,” Diddy said. “Not having a small stake but actually owning an NFL team. I think it’s time for that. A majority of the players in the NFL are African-American but there are no African-American owners. So that’s one of my dreams.”

Diddy told Bloomberg he’s constantly asked about Jay-Z’s Roc Nation sports agency and whether or not he should attempt the same thing.

“But then when I see my friend having a sports agency I support him,” Diddy said. “When I get the calls Oh we need to do Bad Boy Sports. I’m like no that’s not my lane. I stay in my lane. This is my lane I want to do. I’m just me. I do my own thing.”

If Diddy does make a move to become an NFL owner, it could change the face of the sport forever. Who knew that Diddy was such a big football fan?

“Maybe You’ll Write A Better Review With This”: Kris Jenner Caught Bribing Folks For A Good Review Of Her Talk Show

July 24th, 2013 - By Clarke Gail Baines

Oh, Kris…the struggle is real.

We told you earlier today that her new talk show Kris is not faring so well in terms of viewership and with the critics. According to reports, some critics have called the show “unwatchable,” and even “horrible, boring, [and] self-involved.” While I wouldn’t say it’s the worst thing I’ve ever watched (though all the promotion of her reality show and products is a bit much), I’m just wondering why Jenner, along with a lot of these other amateur talk show hosts, can’t do one episode without a guest host? What’s the point of calling the show Kris if you can’t carry it alone? According to reports, P. Diddy and Nene Leakes will be joining her in the upcoming weeks as co-hosts to help save that sinking ship.

Anywho, to get one critic on her side, Jenner reportedly turned to desperate measures. New York Post reporter Linda Stasi wasn’t feeling the talk show whatsoever, going as far to say on Access Hollywood Live that “She has as much right having a talk show as her dopey daughter with no talent had being a host of the X Factor.” Ouch! She was referring to Khloe Kardashian by the way. When Jenner caught word of this negative response to her new program, she sent a note to Stasi that said,

Dear Linda, Sorry you didn’t like the show. I’m still a huge fan of your column. Love and blessings, Kris.

P.S. When you think I’ve improved, maybe you will write a better review with this.”

By “this,” Kris was referring to the sterling silver pen from Tiffany’s that she sent with the note. She also sent along some cupcakes for Stasi according to the Daily Mail. Clearly money isn’t a thing for Jenner, but Stasi wasn’t impressed by the gift, and she actually took to Twitter to call Jenner out.

“Does this bribe make me look fat? Kris Jenner just sent me a Tiffany pen with which to write her a better review next time!Shockingly wrong!”

Photos of the pen have since been put out (but were acquired by Splash) and can be seen HERE with the note. What do you think of Jenner’s “gift” for the critic?

Keep Your Boo Behind-the-Scenes: 11 Celebs Who’ve Mixed Their Mates With Their Music

Ever since I heard the slowed beat of Ghost Town DJ’s “My Boo” drop, I instantly had Ciara’s latest single “Body Party” on repeat. I knew the video would feature her slithering and sliding in moves that would keep EMTs busy for weeks as women across the country blew out their backs and pulled hamstrings trying to imitate the moves for their men.

I wasn’t disappointed when Ciara scissored her legs in the air for boyfriend Future as they play out how they first met for the video, but it was like deja-vu as I saw her relationship slowly steal the spotlight from her first two singles. Is it me, or does something happen to a recording artist when they fall in love and choose to flaunt it in their work? After watching Ciara’s steamy video for “Body Party,” I couldn’t help but wonder if she’s risking the buzz she’s worked so hard to build back by allowing boyfriend, Future, to make so many appearance.

Mixing business and pleasure is a risky move.  There’s something about when celebs turn the camera on to their personal lives that causes their careers and their relationships to fall apart.  Here are a few celebs who might want to think about leaving their boo behind-the-scenes in the future.


1. J.Lo

J.Lo had a pretty good buzz going as a singer even if her “hits” were only heard in the clubs, but as soon as Ben Affleck took J.Lo from the block to the yacht in her Jenny From the Block vid, Jenny’s singing career went man down for a minute and she was left man-less and a little embarrassed.  Not to mention Ben credited the cameo with almost ruining his career. And who can forget how clearly sprung she was on the track “Dear Ben,” in which she sings,” I love you, you’re perfect.” Well apparently the feelings weren’t mutual; Ben quickly married another Jennifer after their break up and made like 11 kids with her.  Sting. Word of advice for the former fly girl: You can sing all the love songs you want about your boo, just don’t name them after him and throw said boo in all your videos.

Second Nanny Comes Forward Calling Kim Porter Out As A Nightmare Employer, Reportedly Suing Diddy For Six Figures

A little less than a month ago we told you that a woman who claimed to be the former nanny of Kim Porter, Sean “P.Diddy” Combs’ children’s mother, filed a lawsuit against Kim. According to the woman’s suit, Kim verbally and violently abused her. She also expressed that Kim frequently indulged in narcotics and other drugs around her twin daughters. Now, a second nanny has come forward claiming that Kim treated her horribly during her stint of employment as the Combs children’s nanny.

According to TMZ, nanny number two is a woman by the name of Amanda Jansen and she filed her suit against Diddy’s company Bad Boy Entertainment since she claims that’s where her checks were coming from. Sources say that Jansen is suing the entertainment company for six figures, as she claims she was simply hired to look after Kim’s children but her job quickly turned into a full-service housekeeping position. The disgruntled ex-employee says that in addition to caring for the children, she was also required to sometimes work over 100 hours per week without ever being given a proper break.

Jansen also says Kim never gave her a room with a working lock and that she was forced to live out of a suitcase because the only furniture her bedroom contained was a bed and a computer desk. In the suit, Jansen complains that when she tried to speak to Kim about her crazy schedule, she was fired.

We hear that the woman is suing for overtime compensation that she allegedly never received and wrongful termination in addition to a few other grievances.

Now that a second woman has come forward, what are your thoughts on the allegations being made against Kim?

Kim Porter Scandal Unfolds: Sources Say Disgruntled Nanny Is A Deceitful Criminal With A Record To Prove It

Yesterday we reported that a woman by the name of Dawn Drago was suing actress and mother of three of entrepreneur P.Diddy’s children, Kim Porter. Drago’s suit, which was filed by attorney Patrick Reider, accuses Kim of violently and verbally abusing her during her period of employment as Porter’s nanny. Drago also claims that Porter is an avid drug user who is not above getting high in front of her twin daughters. The lawsuit implies that Porter’s drug of choice is marijuana and goes on to suggest that she also indulges in coc*ine and pill-popping.

Since the explosive claims made headlines yesterday, a source close to Kim has reached out to TMZ, stating that the former nanny is a liar and that she’s bitter because Kim fired her. The source went on to say that Drago is a convicted shoplifter, which is something that she failed to mention on her employment application. The insider also revealed that Kim is not allowing the claims to move her and that the allegations made about her being a drug abuser are completely false. Since Diddy has taken no action (at least not that we see) against Kim in an effort to remove the twins from her home, some are taking that as proof that he does not believe the allegations either.

In response to the source’s shoplifting revelation, the firm representing Drago released a statement to TMZ, saying that her prior conviction is irrelevant” because she was not working at a shop.”

Yeah, allow that to settle for a moment.


Should a plaintiff’s prior convictions be considered in civil lawsuits?

Diddy may be a lot of things, but from appearances, it seems that one of those things is a devoted father. On Friday, he posted this picture of he and his 6 year old twin daughters, D’Lila and Jessie Combs on their way to a father-daughter dance. Being that these two are Diddy’s first girls, before Chance was born a year later, this was his first time going to this type of event.

This is the caption he wrote when he posted the photo:

On way to my 1st father daughter dance!!!!! I’m so EXCiTED!!!!!!!!

Too cute! Hopefully, Chance will have a father-daughter dance of her own to go to next year.

Update: If you were wondering where you can get those adorable dresses. They’re designed by Layla Grayce.  If your little princess has to have one, you can purchase it here.

And never one to forget about his boys, last Wednesday Diddy also posted this pic of his son, Christian’s Algebra test.

You know Sean “Diddy”‘ Combs always has something up his tailored sleeve. When he first got into the entertainment game he has became known as the unique marketing — literally taking it to the streets when promoting the late Notorious B.I.G. and his own record label Bad Boy. Soon it became the norm to see a crowd carrying Bad Boy picket signs at all the major music industry events.

So now in this high-tech age, Diddy has turned to social media to promote his Sean John jean fashions. The hip-hop mogul recently held the first ever Instagram Fashion Show during New York’s fashion week.

“In honor of New York Fashion Week we wanted to do something that has never been done before”, said Combs in a press release (via The Huffington Post). “With Instagram technology we are bringing Sean John to the social media runway where our consumer lives.” Combs (aka @iamdiddy) posted his Fall 2013 collection in order to reach people via their smartphones. Every 30 minutes on Friday from 10 am to 5pm,  he posted the images.

We’ve got a few of the images after the jump, ICYMI. Any favorites?
