Pretty soon, Puff Daddy P.Diddy Diddy Sean Combs is going to pull a Prince and become "the artist formerly known as..." 

Oh wait. Like today. Sean Combs is Puff Daddy once again.

He revealed the change back to the name that helped make him famous in a one-minute trailer for his upcoming new release, "Big Homie," featuring Rick Ross and French Montana.

The name change comes as part of his new album, reportedly titled MMM, which will be his first since 2010's Last Train to Paris.

"Big Homie," the first single off the album, features Rick Ross and French Montana. The video shows the rappers suspended in various situations until a gunshot rings out and the camera begins featuring stacks of cash. The full video will hit the world on March 31.

50 Cent majorly pushed the envelope yesterday in his beef with three other powerful rap figures, then beat a hasty retreat after apparently getting cold feet.

On Instagram, he publicly insinuated that Diddy, Rick Ross and former record executive Steve Stoute are gay together ... only to delete the pics within minutes.

Afraid of a little retribution, Fiddy? We can't imagine why for the life of us ...

Mr. Cent's two photos featured a pink-shirted Stoute embracing a pink-shirted Diddy, then Diddy and Rick Ross embracing from an angle that suggests kissing.

50 wrote in his caption, "I ain't saying nothing, but something ain't right. Lmao."

The something that wasn't right? His stomach after he posted this. LMAO!

Are Diddy and his girlfriend Cassie engaged after several years as a couple?

An apparent Instagram "proposal" occurred over the weekend ... or did it?

  • Diddy-Cassie Engagement Ring?

The music mogul posted a picture of a diamond ring, writing, “Baby do you like it? I just want to get you wat you Like ! I just wanna Mk you smile :) #takeDat. !”

When Cassie was later spotted wearing a sparkler in a picture posted by Keyshia Cole, speculation soared that she and Diddy were finally engaged. OMG!

Of course, as Gossip Cop dutifully observes, this speculation is premature.

Note that at no point did Diddy or Cassie say “engaged” or “engagement.”

Give American Idol points for trying.

According to a couple new reports, the Fox competition tried to get Kanye West as a new judge... but he turned down the offer because he believes the show to be too mainstream.

Producers then moved on to Diddy... but he also showed Idol the back of his hand because ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez is returning to the panel and... well, that's just awkward.

The rapper "felt it was a 'her or me' situation," a source tells Us Weekly, which is actually sort of comforting.

It's ON now.

Diddy just put Kendrick Lamar on BLAST on Instagram, taking issue with a claim he makes on Big Sean's "Control" where he calls himself the new King of New York.

Diddy disagrees. In hilarious, meme-tastic form:

Diddy Mocks Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar's verse of the Big Sean track - in which he SHREDS Lindsay Lohan, Drake, and everyone else - has been the talk of the web for the last 24 hours.

Diddy wasn't name-checked or threatened with murder (he's one of the few) on "Control," but he took issue with Lamar's lyrics about reigning over NYC.

That's Diddy's role, b!tch.

We'll leave the argument over who the real ruler of the Big Apple rap game is up to you, THGers ... but we have to give Diddy props for his retaliatory style.

Jay-Z had no comment, but based on the photo above, his pal's pretty much implying there's no daylight between their respective positions on Lamar.

With the NFL draft beginning today, it only makes sense that Draft Day, the new football dramedy from Ivan Reitman, is also beginning production today!

In fact, the film will shoot some scenes at the actual draft, before moving to Cleveland to finish production.

In addition to the start of filming, Draft Day has added Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and Terry Crews to the already star-studded cast.

Diddy's twin daughters were surrounded by drug use and even covered in a mysterious white powder, according to a lawsuit against their mom Kim Porter.

Dawn Drago says she worked for Diddy's ex as a nanny from 2011-12, when she claims Kim chain-smoked pot in the house while the girls were home.

Drago alleges she found cocaine as well, and on one occasion was driving the kids to school and noticed they were covered "in a white powdery substance."

Drago claims the kids got into "a bag containing the powder, along with clear capsules, filled with another powdery substance in a bag in the back seat."

Kate Upton and Diddy are not together, despite rumors that the two are hooking up, "getting closer by the minute" and on the verge of being a full-on couple.

According to the New York Daily News, the 20-year-old swimsuit model was seen "sucking face" with Diddy, 43, at club LIV in Miami Beach on March 24.

A witness says "they were kissing, they weren't hiding it."

But that's not all. Just last week, the couple reportedly got together for a dinner in New York City ... supposedly. Soon after the story broke, she denied it.

Britney Spears and will.i.am are back with a remixed version of their hit "Scream & Shout" ... featuring Hit Boy, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne and Diddy!

While not nearly as catchy as the original, it doesn't lack for hip hop star power. Or Britney Spears and her British accent in a very short leather number.

Take a look below and see what you think ...

Yesterday, Eve courted controversy when she suggested that Britney does not actually appear on the song, a claim her camp vehemently denied.

Is that really Spears singing her part?
