Just like the weather, Sean Combs Changes His Tune Again!
Maybe it’s a mid life crisis, or just Diddy being his indecisive self, but he’s changing his name again. He’s rich and an entrepreneur, so we can’t really complain right?
Originally known as Puff Daddy, Sean Combs officially changed his stage name to P. Diddy in 2001 citing the need for a new start after legal troubles stemming from the infamous Club New York shooting and the champagne beating served to Steve Stoute. In a recently released teaser for his “Big Homie” video (above), Combs is credited as Puff Daddy in the title cards. Even though there is a certain familiarity with this old nickname, the man born Sean John Combs has gone through many aliases over the years.
In high school he was nicked named ‘Puffy’. As he made his mark in entertainment he became ‘Puff Daddy’. In 1998 he diversified his brand by launching his fashion line so naturally he went by ‘Sean John’ for that period. In the “Bad Boys For Life” video comedian Ben Stiller blessed him with the name ‘Poppa Diddy Pop’. As time went on he dropped the ‘P’ and just went by ‘Diddy’. Let’s not forget in 2008 he assumed the crown by donning himself ‘King Combs’ after the release of his “I Am King” documentary and accompanying fragrance.
Of course, Combs took to social media to clear up any confusion. This week he tweeted:
