Pray for deliverance from P Diddy's stupidity.

From Yahoo News: (http://news.yahoo.com/s/eo/20050816/en_music_eo/17162;_ylt=Areu6vE8aQrzjJSPq3oOOgpxFb8C;_ylu=X3oDM TBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl)


Diddy Drops the P. By Sarah Hall

"It's the era of Diddy."

So proclaimed the hip-hop impresario formerly known as Sean Combs, Puffy, Puff Daddy and now P. Diddy on Tuesday's Today Show, as he explained that he was changing his name once again.

The rap mogul last switched it up--from Puff Daddy to P. Diddy--in 2001, while seeking a "fresh start" after being acquitted on gun charges.

As for what brought about the latest change in moniker, the entertainer admitted that his previous name change left his fans uncertain of how to address him.

"I felt like the 'P' was getting between me and my fans and now we're closer," Diddy said.

"During concerts, half the crowd is saying 'P. Diddy'--half the crowd is chanting 'Diddy'--now everybody can just chant 'Diddy.' "

He confessed that his unwieldy name was even starting to befuddle him.

"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," Diddy told the New York Post.

"One word. Five letters. Period," he added.

Anyone else sick of this crap bag?

I thought the name was stupid to begin with. Didn't we go through this with Prince, then the artist formerly known as prince, and now I think it's Princess or something like that. What's wrong with "diddy" going by Sean Combs? That name sounds alright, and a hell of a lot better than P. Diddy or Puff Daddy.

I remember maybe 5 or so years ago during a "Celebrity Tombstones" bit Conan O'Brian showed... "Didy's" and under the years lived it said: "Sean 'Puffy' Combs "The Puff Daddy: The first black man to have two stupid nicknames." Looks like that 'stone will need to get updated. :thumbsup:

"I felt like the 'P' was getting between me and my fans and now we're closer," Diddy said. And I'll bet he said that with a straight face.

Whatever happened to just using your first and last name?

I myself am really sick of these damn people that are so full of themselves that they tell people what to call them. Reminds of that dead drug addict ODB or whatever he called himself when he croaked. I wish we could increase the size of the smilies cuz I'd give the biggest :rolleyes: you've ever seen.

Rocketboy- he sure did say it like it was dead serious, I saw the bit last night while channel surfing
Of note- on one of them craptastic "Hollywood Inside" programs there was a little segment with a bunch of them publicity types (you know, "entertainment experts/insiders" the ones who aren't stars but want to be, so you can get them to embarass themselves gushing about STUPID crap like it's somehow based in reality so that those STUPID shows have SOME content, if you can call it that) and I swear in 2 minutes the word "diddy" had been uttered a couple dozen times, attached to phrases like "Diddy is always on top of things, Diddy knows what his fans want and Diddy wants to give it to them, we all love to follow Diddy cos he's just Diddy"
I don't know what's worse, the name or the fact that grown adults can be made to repeat it as nauseum like it's the most important (yet somehow still totally "normal") thing ever

Yeeeargh!!!! :beard:

It's publicity. When was the last time he had a hit? When the last time any of you bought a pair of Sean John jeans? He's trying to push his product.

The quote I found funny was:

"During concerts, half the crowd is saying 'P. Diddy'--half the crowd is chanting 'Diddy'--now everybody can just chant 'Diddy."
First off, don't concerts usually involve instruments? What he does is a "show". Secondly, how full of yourself do you have to be to say people are "chanting" your name? It's a show, dude. That's what they do, but you don't see The Barenaked Ladies changing their name to Ladies, do you? :rolleyes:
Third, you suck. No one cares what the hell your name is. Go ride Ashton's coat tails some more while he's still "hot".

I am a fan of hip-hop, and I'm pretty tired of this clown. His career has been a downward spiral since Notorious BIG's death. Now he's all about publicity, period.


It's publicity. When was the last time he had a hit? When the last time any of you bought a pair of Sean John jeans? He's trying to push his product.

You couldn't be more correct. His Sean John company has been bombarding my radio stations lately. Apparently he "revamped" the look of the clothing, and is adding a womens, and sneaker line. The whole thing is to get his name (whichever one he chooses to use) in the press to boost the upcoming release of his new product. Total Crap!

In my opinion. . . Id rather him put out crummy clothing, then more music. His style is tired, and the rap industry is already going to hell in a handbag.

Uh huh, yeah. . .

Diddy hasnt had any solid acts under his record label in some time. How he affords his lifestyle right now is beyond me. This guys just trying to keep his name relevant right now. I cant stand this nerd. "Take that!"

CaptainSolo1138
08-17-2005, 09:45 AM
Something I forgot to add: Who does he think he is with this whole "Making the Band" or whatever the hell it's called thing?!?! Granted, those kids are money hungry, no-talent hacks, but he acts like God towards them; like they can only pee when he says so or something. He's cutting his own throat when he ends the show prematurely due to their lack of talent and cohesiveness (like he didn't see that coming :rolleyes: ). How bad does it make him look when he can't show people how to do it right, just tell them what they're doing wrong? He's an *** and I can't wait for his career to be officially "over".

"I felt like the 'P' was getting between me and my fans and now we're closer," Diddy said.

Truly the quote of the millennium!

Can you imagine if SSG members started doing that?

"I felt like the 'El' was getting between me and my fans and now we're closer," Chuxter said.

"I felt like the 'Sir' was getting between me and my fans and now we're closer," Steve said.

"I felt like the 'j' was getting between me and my fans and now we're closer," jreason said.

"I felt like the 'kid' was getting between me and my fans and now we're closer," human said.

"I felt like the 'Q' was getting between me and my fans and now we're closer," LD said.

According to my Excite page, these are the top 5 songs in the country. How many of the names do you think are really the artist name? Mariah Carey? I think that's it. Not sure if anyone in the *****cat dolls go by there real names, I've never heard of this band before. No P. Diddy songs in there though!

1. We Belong Together
Mariah Carey
2. Don't Cha
The *****cat Dolls Featuring Busta Rhymes
3. Pon de Replay

Rocketboy- he sure did say it like it was dead serious, I saw the bit last night while channel surfingMan, the guy does have some skills (skillz?), I can't even read it without smiling.

This thread reminds me of the song by Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog:

Well, there's a few differences, first, "Prince" actually is his real name, he was born "Prince Rogers Nelson"; second, Prince has talent.

Your right JT, my mom, God rest her soul, if she was alive today would have told me that I was incorrect. But the point I was trying to make was that he (prince) changed his name to some unpronouncable symbol, and now he is back. He does have talent, and my mom and I watched Purple Rain several times, and we would get up and dance during some of his more dancable tunes. I also like some of his later stuff, and I own the Purple Rain soundtrack. I don't know if Puff Smoke Daddy Diddy ever started out using his real name, or what.

I belive in the start he was just good ol' Sean Combs. Although I really don't care, all he is good for is taking great songs and making them into a sucky sample. See Kashmir by the Mighty Led Balloon as the best example I can give.

I still come back to that Simpson's Treehouse of Horror Paul Anka song... "just don't look, just don't look." The more attention given to (and controversy surrounding) it, the more they win.

Maybe we need a new Internet lingo acronym: ICCL (I could care less).

[p.s. I missed Rocketboy's "irony" comment on the 3rd page of this thread, who beat me to our screen names issue, so I owe a BSLOS for my error... and why not a Sean P. Daddy Puff Combs Diddy Puffy Lopez one!]

That reminds me, I need to hook my cable box back up. When the cable went into my VCR instead of the cable box, I was getting HBO Cinemax, and Showtime. Now they moved those channels to the digital, and I really enjoy having the music channel on when I was first moving in.

I dont think the roll eyes smiley is about your cable hookup, but about Diddy hosting the VMAs, which is further proof that hes desperate for publicity. I dont know how he maintains the lifestyle that he lives, his artists cant sell for anything. And the ones that could wanted out of his Bad Boy label.

He still has three members of Da Band under his label, one of them recently was promoting their upcoming single on 106th and Park.

No worries! I spent the day hooking up my cable box properly, but when I did so, I couldn't get sound out of my 4 speakers, only the ones on the T.V., and I lost the signal in my sons room. I ended up connecting it up like it was before, and then had to put back my gazzilion toys that I have on top of my entertainment center. At least I get the top dusted off, and found that I have no wiring skills.
