By Mike Pearson I Want to Work for Diddy * Grade: B- * When and where: 7 and 9 p.m. Mondays, VH1 Will the real Sean Combs please stand up? Or should we call you Puff Daddy, P-Diddy, Diddy or simply Sean John? The rap mogul has many names, but his persona boils down to two essentials: talent (singer, actor, fashion designer) and arrogance. The latter is on display in this new reality show from VH1, which finds 13 people competing for the "prized" position of Diddy's personal...

That's largely because TV's newest competition show focuses on Sean "Diddy" Combs, the blunt-speaking, street-wise business, fashion and entertainment impresario who concedes, "I'm not the easiest guy to work for."

By Yinka Adegoke NEW YORK (Reuters) - When Warner Music Group created a record label with Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs last year, industry insiders said the company was taking a big risk with a star who may have lost his hit-making touch. They questioned whether Combs' Bad Boy Entertainment could deliver a consistent string of hits after a disappointing partnership with Vivendi's Universal Music Group. Despite a big show biz profile, Combs had not ruled the charts since the late 1990s....

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Hip-hop impresario and fashion designer Sean "P. Diddy" Combs wants to make it easier for fans to shower him with adoration -- so he's dropping the "P." from his stage name. From now on, it's just Diddy. "We are entering into the age of Diddy. It's a new era," the rap star formerly known as Puffy and Puff Daddy told the syndicated TV show "Access Hollywood" this week. In a recent round of interviews hyping his upcoming role as host of the MTV Video Music...
