    Default 'P. Diddy' Wants to Change His Name ... Again

    What do you think? Business/Tax reasons, or just a way to stay in the limelight?

    P. Diddy (search) is changing his name.

    Yes, again.

    As of this morning, the personality formerly known as Sean Combs, Puff Daddy, Puffy and P. Diddy wants to be called Diddy.

    "One word. Five letters. Period," says the hip-hop heavyweight, who swears he isn't taking the P. out of his name to yank our chain -- or as a publicity stunt.

    Why diddy do it ?

    "I needed to simplify things," says the 34-year-old, frankly admitting the confusion created by his last name change, in March 2003, was his initial cause for concern.

    "Nobody knew what to call me," he explains. "I'd notice that people were uncomfortable when I'd meet them for the first time, and then they'd ask me what they should call me. I even started to get confused myself -- and when I'd called someone on the telephone it took me a long time to explain who I was. Too long."

    Apart from the frustration of constantly having to tell people what to call him, Diddy says he worried that the name P. Diddy could be bad for business.

    "I went to a concert in Madison Square Garden last year and the crowd started to chant my name," he says dryly.

    "Let's just say the name P. Diddy didn't quite flow. I realized immediately I had a problem."

    Eliminating the pointless P., a move Diddy is making as he prepares to host the MTV Awards at the end of the month, isn't the only change on the fashion-designing music impresario's agenda.

    He's also planning to punch up his act in the wardrobe department.

    The man who brought "bling," into the mainstream plans to "go more rock 'n' roll," with his threads.

    "It's not going to be costume-y, its more about creative styling," says Diddy about his new look, which is inspired in part by David Bowie and Mick Jagger.

    Both superstars, Diddy says, had great style but "neither of them took themselves too seriously."

    Asked if this is the last name change he plans to make, Diddy doesn't skip a beat before replying: "I don't know. I never say never."

    Who really cares? This guy is a no talent ass clown who only steals other people's music and adds new lyrics. He's less then worthless.

    The man has everything he could want. Fame, fortune, celeb power, his own clothing line etc.... Yet he still accuses President Bush of "disinfranchising" him because he's black. Give me a God damn brake! How arrogant can one man be? Some time back I read in tv guide that he was asked to present a lifetime achievement award to someone at some awards show. He would only agree to do it if they made up an award to give him.

    Call me old fashioned but do you think he would have this many problems if he just went by Sean Combs to begin with or when there started to be "confusion"?

    I have a conspiracy theory whereby "Diddy" actually PAID MTV to *allow* him to host the VMAs this year.

    I find it hard to believe that anyone cares about him anymore, or that MTV sought him out.

    Does anybody even care about this guy anymore?? Honestly?? I think he's been more famous over the last few years for his clothing line and just being a celebrity. I don't think he's been associated with a hit record for years.

    I saw Poof Diddley described in a magazine caption as a "musician." I had to keep from throwing up. I thought it was laughable they had a reality show featuring him advising a group of musicians about "making a band." This guy knows nothing about music. I remember being disappointed when Sting and Jimmy Page not only allowed him to sample their music, but performed live with him as well.
