Puffy Picks His Own Award
The New York Post reports Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs threw a mogul-sized fit backstage at VH1’s ‘Big in ’03’ awards when he found out he was only an award presenter, not an award winner. “Puffy showed up at the Universal Amphitheater in Los Angeles with a huge entourage,” a source revealed. “He was supposed to present the ‘Big Styling ’03’ award to Ashton Kutcher, but when he got backstage he asked what his award was. VH1 told him he was only presenting and that he wasn’t getting an award.” Combs allegedly freaked out, and said: “I am not going on stage unless I get an award!” To calm Combs – and to save the show – VH1 execs answered: “Well, what do you want?” To which Combs replied: “I want to be the Big Maverick – give me the Big Maverick ’03 award!” VH1 hastily complied. The show airs Sunday on the network.
