Diddy among Time's most influential people
Puff Daddy, or more specifically Sean "Diddy" Combs, was named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people. Puffy is listed among a group of "builders and titans," and those on the list are described by Time as people who use "innovation, grand plans, style and substance -- that's what it takes to be influential in the world of business." In Time's ode to Diddy, written by designer Vivienne Tam, he's called a "Renaissance man" and "force of nature." "In all his roles, Combs, known these days as Diddy, has been on the forefront of pushing hip-hop culture into the mainstream," Tam writes. "He is a record producer, entertainment mogul, writer, arranger, designer, actor, singer and three-time Grammy Award-winning rapper. And at age 36, Combs is worth an estimated $315 million." Time also selected 15 "power couples," which included Jay-Z and Beyonce. Latest news...
