Diddy, P Diddy, Fiddy, Puff Daddy....whatever you want to call him has revealed that he considered buying British football club Crystal Palace.
The American hip-hop star told BBC news that he dreams about owning his own sports team.
"There was somebody that had looked at it but the business of it just wasn't the right business move for me at the time," the 40-year-old said.
He added: "I'm always looking into different business ventures and it's definitely one of my dreams one day to be a part of a sports franchise, especially a football team."
"If the situation comes my way and it's appealing, we can make the splash and, most importantly, build the right team and win … I'm into winning and if it's the right situation then I'm open to it."
Crystal Palace F.C went into administration on January 2010. Last week it was taken over by CPFC2010 consortium (made up of Martin Long, Steve Parish, Stephen Browett and Jeremy Hoskins).
We couldn't help but laugh at this video of a student from Kalamazoo Central, who fell asleep during one of Barack Obama's speeches this week.
Falling asleep would have been OK, if he wasn't sitting directly behind the American President and in the direct line of all the cameras focused on his country's leader.
The student earned his well located seat as he was singing in the choir. During the video we can see him yawning and fighting to stay awake. At one point, he leans back, only to jump alert and join in during applause. But when the clapping dies down, so does he and it leaves us wondering what he was up to the night before!
It's not like I need an excuse to post a picture of Kelly Brook in her skimpies, but today is a celebration. Miss Brook intends to showcase her lovely assets in a future edition of Playboy.
According to The Sun, Hugh Heffner's iconic publication is set to pay Kelly a cool half-a-million dollars to pose. The shots are said to be "arty", but no word yet as to whether she'll be fully topless.
In what could be one of the best movie promotional campaigns, it's said that Brook is doing this as part of the publicity for her new movie, Piranha 3D.If this type of thing catches on I can't wait for the next Jennifer Love Hewitt movie to come out. I'm just saying.
Brook will jet off to the Mediterranean for the two-day shoot, which means she gets a nice little sunshine break on top of the half-million payday. Lucky b*tch. A 'source' tells The Sun newspaper:
This is a huge opportunity for Kelly who is without doubt one of the world's most beautiful women. Playboy is an iconic publication which is known across the world as a sophisticated title. Kelly can't wait as they are promising a very arty shoot.
Quite tragic news emerging that Brittany Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack has died at the Los Angeles home the couple shared. Monjack's death comes just five months after Brittany died in the bathroom of the same house.
He was found unconscious by his mother-in-law Sharon, who called paramedics to the scene. Although they tried to resuscitate him, their efforts failed, and Monjack was pronounced dead at the scene. Early reports suggested the cause of death to have been a heart attack, but celebrity gossip website TMZ claims that bottles of pills were found at the scene, but say there is no evidence of suicide.
Interestingly, TMZ also note the similarities between the death of Monjack and the death of Brittany in December:
The similarities are remarkable. Murphy was found unconscious by her mother Sharon. Sharon found Simon unconscious as well. Murphy was found in the master bathroom. Simon was found in the master bedroom of the same home. Paramedics administered CPR to Simon. Simon administered CPR to Brittany. And they may have both died from cardiac arrest ... five months apart.
The must-have accessory for married celebrities this season is the secret mistress. Just ask Ronan Keating who's apparently just been caught fooling around with a Boyzone backup dancer.
According to newspaper reports, Keating has been having an affair with 26 year old Francine Cornell, a dancer on his band's UK tour for as much as seven months before being discovered. His wife Yvonne apparently found a 'secret' mobile phone that the singer used to stay in contact with his girlfriend.
Initially, the couple released a statement suggesting that they were separating on amicable terms. However, after a slew of celebrities caught cheating in the last 12 months, most of us suspected that there may have been a deeper cause to the split. It wasn't long before the tabloid press unearthed evidence of an affair that led to the split.
Well it was only a matter of time.....but Ashley Cole has been outed as a slimeball once again!
The estranged husband of X Factor judge Cheryl ruined his marriage with his infidelities and it seems that despite claiming to be heartbroken, the Lothario hasn't changed at all.
Blonde beauty Lucy Phillips revealed on Facebook that she recently chatted to the football star in Swanky Sundays at the Supper Club in Notting Hill, and how he tried it on with her in a toilet cubicle.
She later told The Mirror:
“I was walking past the guys’ toilets when I saw a big group of blokes gathered round. I looked in and saw Ashley Cole holding court, and I went in.”
She says that Cole “then tried it on with her,” but insisted that she “laughed it off” and didn't even lock lips with the star.
Not to be deterred, Lucy said that Ashley gave it one more shot later in the evening.
“A few minutes after I saw him in the toilets I was with my best friend and we walked past Ashley and his mates,” she said. “They saw us and called us over. I sat on the arm of Ashley’s chair and we chatted. After about 10 minutes we decided to leave and enjoy the rest of our night.”
“I definitely didn’t kiss him – I would remember if I had. I’m not like that at all.”
The American Idol judge proposed to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy on Valentines Day of this year, but he is yet to confirm an actual wedding date.
his ex lover and so-called friend, Sinitta clearly doesn't think a wedding will ever take place.
She told the Daily Mirror, "I really don't know if he will go through with it. If he is really true to himself, he probably won't."
Sinitta who first heard of Cowell's marriage plans via the announcement made in the media says, it will be a miracle if he does.
a few of the old cliche's come to mind here;

jealousy is such a waste of an emotion
the lady doth protest too much.
Below is a beautiful poem by Audrey Hepburn
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes made a very public song and dance about their marriage at the A Fine Romance Benefit for The Motion Picture and Television Fund in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
Irish television and radio presenter Gerry Ryan has been found dead.
The body of popular broadcaster was found in his Leeson Street apartment in Dublin this morning and though Irish police are investigating his death, they do not suspect foul play of any kind.
Gerry was a full-time presenter of radio and part-time presenter of television for Irish network RTÉ. He presented The Gerry Ryan Show on radio station RTÉ 2fm each weekday morning from 1988 until his death.
Mr Ryan is survived by his wife Morah and five children. The Irish prime minister, Brian Cowen, has said he was "deeply saddened by the news".
"He was one of the greats of modern Irish broadcasting on radio and television," said the Taoiseach.
"As a broadcaster, Gerry Ryan was both informed and intelligent, forthright and articulate.
"As a man, he was generous, famously irreverent and witty. I had had the pleasure of meeting him many times, both in front of and away from the microphone. He was always engaging company and a man of considerable charm."
