I recently got an ad in the mail for Sean John Fragrance and was telling my family that this was Sean “Puffy” Combs line of scent and that he has a line of fashion, too. My youngest son, who’s 19 asked who’s Sean “Puffy” Combs? He didn’t know him by that name. He quipped, “Oh, you mean “Diddy”, who now wants to be called “Swag”? This happened to be the week he wanted to be called Swag. . . yes, this is a grown man of 41 who changes his name every time he feels like it, it’s unbelievable. The Swag thing didn’t catch on . . . he actually might be known as P. Diddy Dirty Money or that might have been the name of the album or his tour I can’t keep it straight. Maybe if he didn’t change his name so often, maybe I’d know. . .
So he was born Sean John Combs, then went by Puff Daddy then P. Diddy, then went back to Diddy back to P. Diddy. I just find this amusing and what is really interesting is you have to give this guy credit since he is very successful and has made a fortune. His line of hip-hop fashion took off and immediately became a success. So whatever he goes by, he’s a financial success and keeps us guessing. I just don’t know what the HELL his name is THIS week!
