Sean Combs has announced that he has dropped the P from his name and from here on will be known simply as "Diddy". Apparently
Puff Diddy felt the P. "was coming between me and my fans". I hear that.
From the NY Post:
"Nobody knew what to call me. 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," he said.
"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."
He added: "One word. Five letters. Period."
