If you're confused about Diddy's nicknames then take a place in line. Sean Combs was first known globally as Puff Daddy, then Diddy, Brother Love, and now, apparently, he changed his middle name to "Love." He has been promoting himself as the latter for years, but during his recent chat with Ellen DeGeneres, Combs set things straight on his monikers. People have questioned whether or not he really wants to be called "Love," and he told DeGeneres which name he wants to go by.
The host plainly asked, "What's your name?" and the Rap mogul answered, “I decided that I am just going to go by the name Diddy.”
Matt Winkelmeyer / Staff / Getty Images“See, Diddy is my nickname. Love is my real name. I just changed my name to Love. Sean Love Combs, that’s what it says on my driver’s license, that’s my official name: Love," he added while also showing off his "Love" tattoo. “I’m Love... I wanted to make sure that if anybody didn’t get the message, they could see it. I love tattoos and I got that in one day."
Diddy aka Love recently had a massive moment hosting this year's Billboard Music Awards, but the appearance came with controversy. Not only did he face backlash from the public over his hosting performance, but his lady friends Yung Miami and Gina Huynh got into a vicious back and forth on social media after Gina shared a photo of Diddy giving her a kiss on the cheek.
Check out his moment with Ellen DeGeneres below.

She branded her name in Hip Hop and pop culture infamy when she touted her "Superhead" antics and Karrine Steffans's history is being revisited once again. She made millions from sharing her alleged sexcapades stories that she has claimed involved Ja Rule, Chris Brown, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Usher, Diddy, and more. Steffans visited the Good Moms Bad Choices where she reflected on a time when she was married while allegedly dating Bow Wow and Lil Wayne. She has shared stories about them in the past, but this one caught listeners by surprise.
"Wayne and Bow are my two boyfriends and they're gonna be calling at three o'clock in the morning," she said. "Wayne had the house number. Mind you, I have my kid, my husband has his kid. We have kids! And by the way, it's my house that I pay for, I pay all the bills, everybody is dependent on me, I'm the boss b*tch, you don't pay for nothing."
Michael Buckner / Stringer / Getty ImagesShe recalled when she told her husband that she was leaving so she told him he needed to move his car. "I remember one particular night, I was in my car, I was backing out of the driveway, he moved his car into the street and then he gave me a kiss goodbye." She told him that she would be home in two or three days because she was spending time with one of her "boyfriends."
"And then I would go home to my husband. He would have my dinner waiting, my bathwater ran... And with like a glass of wine," said Steffans. She claimed her husband would also ask if she "had fun." The reactions to this have been plentiful, so check out the clip for yourself below.

Early on in the NFL offseason, the Cleveland Browns shocked everyone as they decided to sign Deshaun Watson to one of the biggest contracts in NFL history as far as guaranteed money is concerned. This was a controversial move especially since Watson is still being investigated for sexual assault. Not to mention, it completely derailed Baker Mayfield's career.
In a report from Cleveland.com, Joe Burrow of the Bengals spoke about the move and what he thought of it all. As Burrow notes, Watson is a generational player and the Browns were in a tough situation. However, as it pertains to Mayfield, Burrow showered the QB with a lot of praise noting that he can still ball out in this league.
Brian Bahr/Getty Images“When you have a guy like Deshaun, you have to take a chance at that because he’s such a great player,” Burrow said. “But Baker is a really good player, he’ll land on his feet. [...] He was hurt all last year and every time we play him, he balls. The first time we play him, week two of my rookie year, we lost like [35–30] or something, and the next time we play him, I throw 400 yards, he goes like [22-28] with five touchdowns. Goes on a two-minute drive, touchdown, won the game. I haven’t beat the Browns yet.”
Either way, Burrow is on the up and up especially after going to the Super Bowl this past year. The Browns will be a lot better this year and they will prove to be tough competition. For years to come, Browns Vs. Bengals is promising to be a fun rivalry.

Drill has officially taken over the world but that isn't really a surprise. Over the years, we've witnessed cities like London and New York City take on the sounds of Chicago with their own twists. However, France also has a thriving drill scene that's easily one of the most overlooked on a global scale.
On his latest release, Headie One locks in with one of France's most promising drill rappers, Gazo, for his latest offering, "22 Carats." The song boasts production from Leo Eynard while Gazo graces the hook in French. Meanwhile, Headie One comes through with a fiery verse that he raps with no drums.
Headie One's unleashed a handful of new singles since dropping Too Loyal For My Own Good in 2021. Earlier this month, he released, "Came In The Scene," so it seems like a follow-up project might be coming soon.
Wish I never knew what rose gold
Did the chandelier here cost me a mortgage?
Gang masked up in COVID, but they don't care 'bout COVID
With all this war, can't feel emotion

After defeating the Phoenix Suns in Game 7 of the second round, Luka Doncic was heralded as the best player left in the NBA playoffs. Of course, it was going to be difficult for him to live up to that since he is now going up against Steph Curry in the Western Conference Finals. The Warriors are a dynasty and while they've taken a couple of years off from contending, there is no reason to believe they can't win the title this season.
Last night, the Warriors showed exactly why they are the best team in the league right now as they blew out the Mavericks in Game 1. Doncic was held to just 21 points and for the most part, the Mavs were completely anemic on offense. It was the inverse of what happened against the Suns, and now, Doncic has to answer for it.
Harry How/Getty ImagesAccording to reporter Callie Caplan on Twitter, Doncic simply said “I gotta be better, that’s not me. I gotta be better for the whole group.” Doncic realizes he played uncharacteristically bad and that next time out, he will be much better. Unfortunately, it's also his teammates who need to be better, which is completely out of his control.
If Doncic and the Mavs do not get this series under control, this could be a quick four-game or five-game series. Hopefully, they can make it a lot more interesting than that.

Days after the shocking news of Kevin Samuels' death, he made a posthumous appearance in the latest episode of FX Atlanta. The eighth episode of season 3 and fourth anthology entry titled "Rich Wigga, Poor Wigga," features Samuels taking on the role of philanthropist and businessman Robert Shea Lee. His inclusion was controversial but it was also eerie given the timing of it all.
During a recent interview with Complex, Atlanta writer and producer Stephen Glover revealed that the role was initially intended for Steve Harvey but it fell through. Ultimately, Samuels pulled through to play Robert Shea Lee.
John Sciulli/Getty Images"I’m a Black man, so to me, Kevin Samuels isn’t that crazy,” Glover said. “He was an old Black man. I think we’ve all met some version of Kevin Samuels before in our lives. We probably have a family member who’s Kevin Samuels.”
Samuels' presence on social media made him a polarizing figure that was frequently criticized for his treatment and ideologies surrounding women, particularly Black women. Still, the creators of Atlanta were aware of the controversies surrounding Samuels and the criticism they would face with his inclusion in the cast.
"People are getting lazier, so I understand this idea of us putting Kevin Samuels [in an episode] must mean that we hate women, but actually Kevin Samuels did a really good job on this,” Glover continued. “I think as far as the bigger question of us hating women, we definitely don’t.”
The season 3 finale of Atlantadebuts on Thursday night at 10 p.m. Check the trailer out below.

TikTok's been abuzz with White's "BILLIE EILISH." before it was even released. The Philadelphia rapper posted a snippet of the song on the social media platform, and fans immediately were begging him to drop the whole thing. He finally gave into their demands last night.
The song is not much longer than White's teaser, but definitely packs a punch. The beat is infectious, using a Middle-Eastern sample with a blasted bass kick. White matches its energy in his snarling delivery. His lyrics are pure flexing– Armani raps of women, Lexuses, and Uber Eats. All of it combines into a minute and thirty-nine seconds of catchiness. Even though the song was just released, its premature virality has given it legs, as it's already doing big numbers on streamers.
Billie Eilish herself hasn't said anything publicly about the song. She's not afraid of sharing her opinion on hot topics, though. She got into an argument with Kanye West after she took a dig at Travis Scott. She also was very frank about her involvement at Coachella, saying, "I should not be headlining." And Armani White isn't the only musician she's inspired. Harry Styles recently said of her, "She broke the spell for me."
Check out Armani's song below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
Bitch, I'm stylish
Glock tucked, big t-shirt, Billie Eilish
Watch on my wrist, but I want that in diamonds
N****s talkin' crazy, when I pull up, it's silent
