How about "gun-tossing, jail-dodging no-talent punk"?

SOunds like something a little kid might say: "I just went Pee Diddle in my shorts!" Yikes! The time is now 15 minutes and 30 seconds. You are officially out Pee Daddy.

This was included on the morning news this morning. News? Do me a favor and tell me when Sean Combs does something worthwhile with his fame, "talent", and money, okay?

What a goof. Puffv said that he's been credited in some albums as "P. Diddy". Looks more like a typo than anything, p daddy, p diddy.

I much prefer TAFKAPD, but none of this really matters now that Hammer's Back.

I guess the hip-hop focus group results came back pretty dismal for "Sean".

Das right, dhartung: You can touch that!

Never trust a rapper that takes the moniker of a Nintendo Game.

"A lot of people want to make money without working hard. When they see opportunity, they take it."

I love that he actually said this, apparently with no trace of irony.

Mr. Combs went on to add, "I also want to send a message to J-Lo: I miss your sweet, sweet breasts. Please come back to me and halt my irrevocable descent into celebrity B-list purgatory."

I expected he would simply steal someone else's name and rap on top of it. Anyway, JLo is one of those "better seen than heard" stars who should do more Anaconda movies and less singing. And P D[ia]ddy should do a round of 10-321 commercials and then just fade away.

Puffy knows how to get press, but the all-time master has to be Old Dirty Bastard.

Should you doubt this assessment, we simply point to the month of July, a 31-day span in which O.D.B. nursed a gunshot wound, stood accused of shoplifting, had his car stolen, kicked off a club tour, and skipped out on a court date prompting an arrest warrant. Over 1998's other eleven months, he stormed the Grammy podium, saved a girl who was pinned under a car, faced deadbeat dad charges, was tossed from a Berlin hotel for hanging from his balcony naked, and found himself charged with making terrorist threats not once but twice. Also, in a move that provided the crown jewel in his newsmaker crown, he adopted the moniker Big Baby Jesus.

Hardest working man in show business, and my vote for best name change ever.

I knew he liked to be called Diddy because I have a copy of the special remix of He Loves U Not by Dream - he calls out "My name is Diddy!" a few times on that track. Puff, sorry, Diddy actually created the band Dream. We may have Puff to kick for years - in the form of girl and boy bands.

I may need to seek help for my pop habit.

P.S.: ODB is a crazy mutha. But you knew that.

You know Diddy was hitting a real low spot when Dream tried to distance themselves from Bad Boy during his trial. "We're just on his label, we don't party with him or anything."

Or words to that effect...

Did I mention their album sucks? No, really, it does. ODB, on the other hand, has yet to make a bad album.

It isn't like I mention him that often, but when I do, I have taken to calling him Poof Doody.

Why doesn't he just call himself SEAN? Thats his NAME isn't it?? Plus, I was always under the assumption that someone can't make up their own nickname. I know thats how it worked for everyone I know. If I would have gone to school one day and said call me JFunk, I would've been beat down. One can only hope the same thing happens to Sean Combs.

That's right. All the other singers used to beat up .
