>> Jay: Welcome back. Talking with P. Diddy.
[ Applause ] You’re a new york guy. Hey, how’s mom doing?
>> Mom is doing great. What’s up mom? Hi mom. I’m back. I’m on the show
>> Jay: You just had a birthday, right?
>> I just had a birthday.
>> Jay: 32?
>> Yeah, yeah, 32.
>> Jay: What do you do on your birthday? Do you have a big bash?
>> I wanted to do something different this year. I took a whole bunch
of friends. We went to miami. We just relaxed. We did different things.
We went bowling and played paint ball, and just hung around.
>> Jay: I didn’t ask what u u did when you were 12.
[ Laughter ] When you’r32 what did you do?
>> I wanted to recapture my youth. That was the whole concept. It was
a lot of playing games and being with people that you really care about
and love. So I had a great time.
>> Jay: I just want to see video of you bowling. That’s what I wanna
>> I’m a good bowler.
>> Jay: It’s hard to look cool bowling.
>> Are you a good bowler?
>> Jay: I can bowl. Could I kick your ass, yeah?
[ Laughter ] I mean, yeah.
>> Could I kick your ass in paint ball.
>> Jay: Paint ball? Now that I think about it, you might be better at
>> Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hey, hey. I’m just following the lead of your jokes.
>> Jay: I understand. I have to ask you about this butler thing. I got
a bunch of jokes about it. You hired like an english butler.
>> I did.
>> Jay: A guy from england trained in the school of butlertry.
>> Real truth, he’s from atlanta. He’s not trained in any butlertry,
but he has a position of my butler slash assistant. I just need a lot of
help. I am a real needy guy. I like things being neat, unlike yourself
— which I heard about you.
>> Jay: What does he do?
>> Hold on. What about you?
>> Jay: No. See — that would drive me nuts. Last night I went home,
made a turkey sandwich, I did the laundry. When was the last time you did
[ Applause ] Do you do the laundry or does the butler do the laundry?
>> The butler does the laundry. Butler does the laundry. I work a lot,
jay. Working, I’m running around.
>> Jay: What does the butler do? Say you’re sitting there. How does
he address you?
[ In british accent ] Mr. Combs? P. Diddy? What does he say? Excuse
me, P. Diddy. What does he say?
>> He calls me m combs.
>> Jay: Mr. Combs?
>> He calls mer. Combs. But it’s a little bit different than just that.
It’s like, you know, I need a lot of help, a lot of assistance. It helps
me to just get through every second, you know. I just need help sometimes.
>> Jay: So you feel everyone should have a butler?
>> Everyone should have somebody to help them out in life.
>> Jay: Are you —
[ Applause ] Are you like a neat freak?
>> I’m definitely a neat freak. I like everything organized. I’m not
a neat person. I’m like you.
>> Jay: Really?
[ Laughter ] Let me ask you — this is perfect. This is great. You’re
a fashion guy. I have got some of your clothes. Does this look like I’m
wearing a carpet?
[ Laughter ]
>> Jay: Very nice.
>> You can pull out a vacuum and clean that sucker.
>> Jay: You mean your butler could pull out a vacuum and clean it.
>> No. I would do that myself.
>> Jay: I would pay to see you work a vacuum. I bet you don’t even know
how to turn a vacuum on.
>> I wouldt say that. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon. It just got
to a point where it got hectic and I dn’t want things to start falling
apart. I can still know how to vacuum. I know how to do the dishes. I may
bleachertain things the wrong way at times. I try my best.
>> Jay: You’re doing more movies. With halle berry in a movie.
>> We just did a film with halle berry, billy bob thornton. Produced
by my man lee daniels
>> Jay: Do you like that more than this?
>> I really can’t say that. I love making music and entertaining in
general. Music is my first love. As far as films and television, acting
is something I’m definitely taking seriously and something I definitely
look forward to. It’s fun.
>> Jay: Movies are fun when they come out. It just seems like work when
you’re doing them. You’re not in front of an audience.
>> If you enjoy being artistic and entertaining it’s great. Make sure
you all see the movie. It’s called “monster’s ball.” It’s independent,
it’s a small movie. Check that out in december.
>> Jay: We’ll come back.
>> We’ll chat it up about that.
>> Jay: Next time you come back we’ll talk.
>> What’s going on? I’m leaving?
>> Jay: You’re n leaving. You’re not leaving. No, no. I’m leaving. You
>> All right.
>> Jay: You can stay here. I got things to do.
>> Jay: P. Diddy and the bad boy family, the saga continues. Nice work.
