Sean "Diddy" Combs Explains All His Nicknames on Ellen

Finally! Sean "Diddy" Combs Explains the Meanings Behind All of His Nicknames

Is he Sean? Is he Puffy? Is he Puff Daddy? While the world has been struggling for decades over what to call Sean "Diddy" Combs, he finally offered a glimpse as to what each of his nicknames means during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday. Sean explained that being blessed with so many nicknames has allowed him to wake up each day and pick the one he feels most comfortable with. "Most of the time I feel like I'm Puff," he said. "But it also depends on what kind of mood I'm in. If I'm acting crazy, like 'agh!', that's Diddy. You know what I'm saying? If I'm dancing real smooth with a girl, that's Puff Daddy. If I'm looking like I'm scared or nervous or shy, that's Sean." Watch the full clip above to see his hilarious explanations and to see Ellen's throwback video of herself inviting people to Sean's 29th birthday party in 1998.
