NY Daily News- Puff Daddy is back!
Musician and media mogul Sean Combs, who has gone by Sean “Puffy” Combs, P.Diddy and just plain Diddy, announced that he is returning to his old stage name Puff Daddy on Tuesday.
Combs, 44, dropped the name Puff Daddy in 2001. His decision to re-adopt his old name comes just before the release of his first album in four years, “MMM.
Here we go again. Puffy hasn’t been in the news enough, so he had to change his name again. And sure, there will be some discussion amongst younger people about the change.

Trust me, nothing will make you feel whiter than talking to someone over the age of 40 about the different monikers of Sean Combs.
I personally do not want to hear about another name change, unless he officially switches his name to Dolphin Teeth. Hate hate hate hate hate hate.
However, I will say this. The one good thing this whole name changing nonsense has brought is the old Ben Stiller line from the “Bad Boys For Life” music video. Gets me every time.
