P Diddy will now be known as -- wait for it -- Diddy.
This completes quite a metamorphosis for Diddy. It started with Sean Combs. Then Puff Daddy. Then Puffy. Then P Diddy. And now: Diddy.
Diddy told MTV news: "It's five letters, one word. The name is changed. We made it simpler. We removed the P. The P was getting in between us. We're entering the age of Diddy."
"A lot of my peeps in music been calling me Diddy, so it's not a drastic change for them. But people around the world didn't know what to call me. We was at (Madison Square Garden) rocking with Jay-Z. The last time I was there, half the crowd was chanting 'P Diddy', half the crowd chanting 'Diddy'. We gonna stop the confusion."
"'Diddy. Diddy, Diddy!' Simple. To the point and it sounds strong. It sounds like something is about to happen. It sounds like something is about to go down in history."
Best bets for the next nickname? It could be any of the following:
Or he could go the other route. He could shock us all with: "Sean Puff Daddy Puffy Diddy Combs." Or SPDPDC, for short.
