Diddy Clears Up Name Confusion

Rapper SEAN 'DIDDY' COMBS has stopped using his middle initial because it was pretentious and caused too much confusion.

The singer's name has gone through several different incarnations, including PUFF DADDY, PUFFY and P DIDDY, but he insists that "Diddy" is the final version.

He says, "We're going to keep Diddy. I felt, to be honest, that the 'P' was getting in between me and the fans.

"These days, you have to be close to your fans, you can't be 'too cool for school.'

"They have to be able to connect with you. I was at Madison Square Garden doing a concert and half the crowd was chanting "P Diddy" and the other half was chanting "Diddy." It was confusing."
