Sean Combs

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is using his status as the world’s highest-earning rapper to give back to the community, announcing that he’ll be opening a charter school in Harlem, where he grew up.

A report by the Associated Press says that the new school, called Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School, will open in the autumn of this year. Florida-based educator Danita Jones will be its principal, while the project will be overseen by Dr. Steve Perry, the founder of a similar school in Hartford, Connecticut.

Young, Rich And In Ibiza - The Perfect Setup For A Justin Bieber/Kendall Jenner Fling?


Justin Bieber Kendall Jenner Kim Kardashian Kanye West Kate Moss Jared Leto Naomi Campbell Sean Combs

Despite recent events, it looks like Justin Bieber still has his fans, especially among the celebrity crowd. The singer cooled off from all the PR and legal problems he’s been having with a party in Ibiza on Friday night. And according to an ever trustworthy “unnamed source” for The Sun, he was joined by – get this – the latest PR project of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kendall Jenner.

Kendall Jenner
Is JB making the moves on Kendall? We can't see it, but the rumour is going strong.

The young celebs attended a party for the birthday of Givenchi designer Ricardo Tisci. The guestlist also included Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (naturally), as well as Naomi Campbell, Jared Leto, P Diddy (or whatever he’s called these days) and Kate Moss – a fashionable crowd.

Dr Dre Is Hip Hop's First Billionaire, Meet Hip Hop's Five Richest Artists


Dr Dre Sean Combs 50 Cent Birdman Jay Z

We hope there's no hard feelings! Dr Dre has overtaken Sean Combs AKA Puff Daddy (or is it P. Diddy, or Puffy, or Diddy?) to become hip hop’s richest man. The rapper has finalised a deal with Apple to sell his stake in Beats Electronics, which will give him a personal fortune of $800 million. Apple are allegedly purchasing Beats Electronics, which produce the popular Beats headphones, for $3.2 billion.

Dr Dre Billionaire 49 year old Dr Dre has become hip hop's first billionaire earner

Kim Kardashian Breaks Post-Baby Silence With Appearance On Kris Jenner's Show [Video]


Kim Kardashian Kris Jenner Sean Combs Kanye West

On Friday's (2 August) episode of Kris, Kris Jenner's daytime chat show, there was a very special surprise for Jenner and the audience watching at home because Kim Kardashian made a very special appearance on the show to discuss her new life as a mother and tell her own mother how much she digs the show. Sean 'P Diddy' Combs was Kris' special gust on Friday's episode, and he brought with him a great little treat indeed; a pre-recorded video message from Kim.

Kim Kardashian LAX
Kim has been in self-imposed exile since giving birth

Kim appeared by herself in the video, with no Kanye or North by her side, making her first appearance in front of a camera in seven whole weeks. That's right, we've had SEVEN WHOLE WEEKS without one selfie or paparazzi shot of the tabloid's most favoured darling. We're not quite sure how to deal with that information... Anyway, in her video appearance Kim told her mother how much she loves the show, saying; "Hi mom, I just want to say congratulations on your new show. I'm sorry I couldn't be there in person, but I'm just loving life a little bit too much at home right now."

Is Julian Fellowes Really Pondering A Role For P Diddy In Downton?


Sean Combs Julian Fellowes

When the news broke that P-Diddy was going to appear in Downton Abbey, only for it to be revealed as a joke, fans of the series will have breathed a sigh of relief: this is their serious period drama, and they don’t want a popular rapper in there messing about!

Sean Combs P DiddyCan you imagine this guy in Downton? We want to see it

But consider this: would P-Diddy be a welcome addition to the Downton scene? This is what the popular show’s creator, Julian Fellowes is currently mulling over in his writer head. “I’d never says never, though I imagine he’d steal the scene, even if it was a small part,” Lord Fellowes said at the Life After Stroke Awards, at the Dorchester hotel in Mayfair, according to the Telegraph.

P Diddy Stars In Downton Abbey Spoof


Sean Combs

You thought Gary Carr was the first black actor to be making an appearance in Downton Abbey? Think again, fools! There’s another man who has leapt into the ground-breaking role, and it’s none other than P Diddy himself!

The rapper recently told fans on his Twitter that he’s a huge fan of the period drama and started hinting recently that he could be making a surprise turn on it! "How many of y'all out there are Downton Abbey fans?" he wrote on the social networking site, adding "I'm going to be making a big announcement in the next hour-im excited for yall to hear!" He then wrote: "I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today @DowntonAbbey".

Now before you all get excited, it’s of course all a spoof – yes, P Diddy may well be a fan of Downton Abbey, but surely there’s no way he’d ever appear on it. What he has done though is provide some comedy gold in the form of a hilarious spoof of himself appearing as the new Lord of the manor. Cleverly enough, he’s superimposed himself into some old Downton Abbey scenes and goes about his business in an amusing fashion, including hosting the world’s first ever ‘white party,’ and appearing in the trenches during the war. Have a look below – it’s genius.

Is P Diddy Making A Shock Appearance In Downton Abbey?


Sean Combs

P Diddy is to make a sensational cameo appearance on Downton Abbey! Or is he? The rapper has been telling fans recently on his Twitter that he’s a huge fan of the period drama and started hinting recently that he could be making a surprise turn on it! "How many of y'all out there are Downton Abbey fans?" he wrote at one point, followed by "I'm going to be making a big announcement in the next hour-im excited for yall to hear!" He then wrote: "I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today @DowntonAbbey".

Oh my God! So this is pretty exciting stuff, or we thought it was. But it turns out the whole thing’s a spoof of course. There’s no way P Diddy would appear on Downton Abbey. However, Diddy did provide the following hilarious clip of himself making a surprise appearance as the first black character to appear on the drama. Cleverly enough, he’s superimposed himself into some old Downton Abbey scenes and goes about his business in amusing fashion, including hosting the world’s first ever ‘white party,’ and appearing in the trenches during the war.

To be honest, from the footage we reckon that if Diddy was in Downton Abbey, it would make the program a heck of a lot more enjoyable to watch. Check out P Diddy 'in' Downton Abbey on Funny Or Die.

Kate Upton: P Diddy's Girl? Is The Model Dating Sean Combs?


Kate Upton Sean Combs

P Diddy and Kate Upton both seem to have gotten over their most recent relationships and appear to have hooked up together. The pair were reportedly making no secret of their new liaison at club LIV in Miami Beach late last month (March 2013). An eyewitness told New York Daily News “they were kissing, they weren’t hiding it.” This is pretty fast work from Mr Sean Combs and from Kate, both of whom were dating other people until not so long ago.

20-year-old Kate was dating the Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, though she was definitely single by Valentines Day, when she stated that she was no longer dating Justin. P Diddy’s recently split from singer Cassie, too, despite having recently been seen house hunting with her. They were reportedly searching for a pad in Beverly Hills back in January so something must have gone wrong since then. Last September, he tweeted a picture of her, with the message “I’m a very lucky man #knowthat.”

After their meeting in Miami Beach, Upton reportedly met up for dinner with Diddy in New York. The pair apparently dined at Gemma, at the Bowery Hotel. A source told the Daily News “they were having dinner together,” which is what people generally do in restaurants, but you now, the whole kissing in a club thing is certainly something to get excited about, if you’re a fan of celebrity gossip.

Steve Carell Swatting Prank Actually Sees P Diddy's Home Swarmed By LAPD!


Steve Carell Sean Combs

Steve Carell had his home surrounded by heavily armed police and SWAT teams from the Los Angeles Police Police Department earlier this week, but not because he is actually a drug barron or was being held hostage, no instead the comic actor found himself as the latest victim in yet another swatting prank. Well, it wasn't actually him who was the but of the joke as initially though, it was actually music mogul and Carell's neighbour P Diddy who was the intended victim of the prank, but that didn't stop the LAPD from getting a little confused (not for the first time this year) and storming both homes.

Diddy’s swanky L.A. home was invaded by more than a dozen police cars and two helicopters following the prank call being placed to a local dispatcher and although it was initially believed that Carell was the intended victim, it turns out Diddy was the prankster's main target. Police later announced the reason behind their annexing of Carell's property, revealing that they simply had nowhere else to go after completely surrounding the Diddy estate and the reason they invaded Carell's home was because they allegedly wanted to wanted to secure the location.

Swatting has become a popular pursuit for pranksters of late and involves a person making a hoax phone call to police, telling them that armed gunmen have entered someone's home and often adding that shots have been fired. On December 10 last year (2012), police arrested a teenage boy who they claimed had pulled a similar swatting prank against actor Ashton Kutcher and singer Justin Bieber. Due to the ongoing popularity the prank has conjured up, police are taking the issue increasingly more seriously and have warned potential swatters that they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law when caught.

Twitter Support For Obama From Lady Gaga, Katy Perry And P Diddy


Lady GaGa Barack Obama Katy Perry Sean Combs Donald Trump

As the world breathes a collective sigh of relief over Barack Obama’s re-election, some of the world’s biggest celebrities have tweeted their feelings about the news. Lady GaGa, Katy Perry and Puff Daddy were among the first to show their support.

After posting a rather bizarre tweet which we can only assume was the result of over-zealous, excited tapping on her smart-phone (it read “AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHRHRGRGRGRRRGURBHJB EORWPSOJWPJORGWOIRGWSGODEWPGOHEPW09GJEDPOKSD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!0924QU8T63095JRGHWPE09UJ0PWHRGW”) Lady Gaga composed herself and wrote something a little more comprehensible, saying “I JUST GOT OFF STAGE IN COLUMBIA!! CONGRATULATIONS MR. PRESIDENT ‪@BarackObama We are so proud to be American tonight! YES!!! YES! YES!!”

Fellow pop star Katy Perry was a little more restrained in her own message of congratulations, re-tweeting Barack’s own victory message and adding “The people have the power! Proud to stand by you for 4 more years.” P Diddy posted a photo of himself on Instagram with Barack Obama back in 2004, where Diddy reckons he predicted Obama would become the first black president. “The 2nd time around feels even better” he commented.

The P-Diddy Saga Kind Of Continues... As He Crashes And Is Fine


Sean Combs

Last night, Puff Daddy aka P-Diddy aka Diddy aka Sean Combs was involved in a car crash outside The Beverly Hills Hotel, in Beverly Hills. 

The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino who gave a little information about the uncharacteristically tame incident for the rapper. According to Hoshino, Dids was a passenger in a Cadillac Escalade on Sunset Boulevard where a Lexus Sedan cut across the Cadillac, at which point the vehicles collided. 

TMZ posted videos of the bashed-up Escalade and Diddy lying on the grass. However, although he complained of pain, he bypassed the offer of a lift to the hospital and said he would seek his own medical treatment. While used to wild parties with thousands of attendees or being arrested on firearms charges, a tiny little bump will barely raise the heart-rate of Mr Combs.

P Diddy Recovers Curbside After Beverly Hills Car Crash


Sean Combs

P Diddy was involved in a pretty serious looking car accident outside the Beverly Hills hotel on Wednesday evening (October 24, 2012). The rap mogul was arriving at the luxury residence when his chauffeured Cadillac Escalade collided with a Lexus RX.

 In photographs provided by X17.com, Diddy is seen crumpled in a heap on the grassy verge, appearing to be in some distress. Eyewitnesses say Diddy and a second passenger remained sprawled on the lawn until hotel staff escorted them through the lobby. An ambulance eventually arrived at the scene, though it’s unclear whether the rapper sustained any serious injuries. Police sources say everyone involved in the accident complained of pain, including Diddy, his driver and the other driver. A report was taken at the scene, though no citations were issued.

It appears P Diddy’s accident occurred shortly after he arrived in Los Angeles from New York, where he had posted an Instragram photo on Twitter with the caption “Retweet if you like my view.” The overhead image showed Central Park and the statue in Columbus circle.

Get Him To The Greek Review


Very Good
With all the hallmarks of an Apatow production (vulgarity, racy humour, adults acting like children), this Forgetting Sarah Marshall spin-off is lively and silly enough to keep us giggling. But its darker moments make the tone rather uneven.

Aaron (Hill) works at a Los Angeles record label that's struggling to make money, so he proposes restaging the iconic Greek Theater gig by fading rock star Aldous Snow (Brand) 10 years ago. Then his intense boss (Combs) sends Aaron to London to accompany the notoriously unreliable Aldous back to L.A. by way of New York and Las Vegas. And of course nothing goes as planned, all coloured by trouble both guys are having with their girlfriends (Moss and Byrne). Will they make it to the Greek in time?

Monster's Ball Review


Terrible
Strangeways, here we come: Marc Forster represents jungle fever in some mighty odd ways throughout Monster's Ball. Racist Georgia slammer prison guard Billy Bob Thornton frequents his favorite late-night diner after days spent monitoring death row. He orders coffee -- black! And a side order of chocolate ice cream. By the time he sizes up ghetto waitress Halle Berry, you can tell by his hungry eyes (and hungry heart) that he'd love to sink his teeth into a big ol' slice of chocolate cheesecake.

His choco-licious cravings would make for comic gold if Forster were aiming for dark comedy. It really ain't much different from the classic line in Airplane! when that precocious little girl quips, "I like my coffee black, like my men!" But Forster chooses to play it straight and solemn, a hopelessly limiting choice. Without benefit of slapstick satire, Forster's glib presentation of interracial skin's allure feels ignorant and borderline offensive. The only thing missing is Halle Berry biting down on a vanilla wafer -- though she does beat her fat son for scarfing down chocolate bars ("I'll slap the black off of you!").

Fade To Black Review


Weak
Throughout Jay-Z's Fade to Black, the rap superstar talks about the importance of making his final album great, and about how big his November 2003 concert at Madison Square Garden needs to be. Both are profiled in the film. It would have been nice if the man they called Jigga, put a little of that focus in helping to make an absorbing chronicle of those heady times. Fade to Black, for all of the cultural hoopla involved, isn't much different from a concert DVD with some extra footage thrown in.

I'm sure fans of Jay-Z will be enthralled as his improvised rhymes and speedy eloquence join forces with an array of talent from the hip-hop community, including Missy Elliott, R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, and Pharrell Williams. Everyone else will feel like they're watching a movie that's perpetually halfway over.

Made Review


Excellent
Practically heckled out of the ring at their boxing match, best friends Bobby and Ricky (Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn) are hardly your titans of the fights. In fact, they aren't much in the way of titans of anything. They're almost losers. Whenever Bobby gets ahead, Ricky's antics pull him back down -- never on purpose, he just doesn't know how to behave any better.

When Bobby gets kicked off his L.A. construction job, he pleads with minor crime boss Max (Peter Falk) to give him something better to do than smooth concrete and fistfight his buddies. And so the hijinks begin... as Bobby and Ricky head for New York in an unspecified role as heavies for some deal of Max's.

Made Review


Good

"Swingers" lounge lizards Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn are reunited in "Made" as a pair of feckless part-time boxers who try to make something of themselves by becoming inept bagmen for the mafia.

Another sardonic -- but more cinematically mature -- comedy written by Favreau (who also directed this time), the flick features Fav as Bobby, a hapless amateur of a pug who just wants to do right by his stripper girlfriend (Famke Janssen) and her angelic little daughter.

A downhearted but upright palooka, Bobby gets kicked off his "day" job as driver for his girlfriend's tease gigs when he punches out a grabby guest at a bachelor party. But his boss, a cranky back-room operator played with comedic panache by Peter Falk, gives him a chance to make up for it by going to New York to do a money drop for a high-rolling uptown gangster called Ruiz (hip-hop mogul Sean "Puffy" Combs).

Monster's Ball Review


Very Good

The opening shot of "Monster's Ball" -- a strenuous, sorrowful, racially-charged drama about finding solace in unexpected places -- is a simple image of Billy Bob Thornton sleeping, his face almost entirely obscured by shadows.

Even though he doesn't move a muscle, his whole body seems somehow racked with so much tension and stress that you inherently understand this slumbering soul is a deeply tormented man.

Now, if he can project all that while completely inert, just imagine how powerful Thornton's acting becomes when he wakes up.
