Sean Combs:
Call Me Swag

P. Diddy is changing his name... to Swag. After a bout of the flu, the real Sean Combs decided to announce on Twitter that he'd like to be called Swag for a week. What happened to Puff Daddy?

P. Diddy likes to change his name every so often, and now he's telling all of his fans to call him Swag -- but for one week only.

"Got a little bored when i was sick so i decided to change my name for one week," he tweeted last night, directing his 3.6 million-plus followers to follow his alter-ego, aka "Swag," on Twitter and watch a video in which he announced his most recent name change, along with an entourage that included Ray-J.

"I'm not dead, I'm alive!" he hollers in the YouTube video. "So I decided that I'm gonna change my name for a week, in honor of my comeback," he continues. "For this week only, you can call me by my new name, Swag."

His fans seem to like the latest name switch. "It's called self branding #economics101 #brilliant," one follower tweeted. As for why Swag, another fan tweeted: "New name for a week is Swag because its the truth!!!"

Over the years, the producer, rapper, fashion designer and actor has been known as P. Diddy, Diddy, Puff, Puff Daddy, King Combs and Puffy.

Recently, Diddy canceled a series of tour dates, causing some media outlets to speculate the Diddy Dirty Money performances had been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. The Diddy camp countered it was due to "production and technical logistics."

Silly. It's amazing that Combs, a 40 something year old has-been who sells liquor for a living, believes that anyone respects him using these ridiculous, childish monikers.

Change your name all you want to Diddy. Just as long as you don't start changing your appearance like some plastic surgery addicts do. P.S. you do have 'Swag' and you was the one to bring the word back anyways.

That is pretty good of him, he has a very good intention and nothing is bad in him changing his name. Love you SWAG.

I do not care what HE changes his name to! P Diddy has serious ISSUES as far as I am concerned. There are some of us who do not care what he does!
