Call him P Diddy, Puff Daddy or Diddy; Sean John Combs - rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur - knows how to stay in the news.
Hosting the Golden Globes should have been a piece of cake for him, but there was something in the air that night that messed up Diddy’s karma quite badly.
He seemed poised and ready for action before the event. He even posted photos to his Instagram, taking fans through his preps for the grand night.

Somewhere along the way, he may have had a few shots to get rid of nerves, but the night itself was one awkward moment after another.
He was excited enough in the beginning. So excited, in fact, that he seemed in no mood to give the presenter’s spot over to Usher when the latter came on stage with Kate Beckinsaleto present the awards for best score and best original song from a motion picture:
And it didn’t stop at that. Did you notice him knocking Usher?
And then the awkward moment when Alex Ebertwon his first-ever Globe for best motion picture score for director J.C. Chandor's "All is Lost."
Ebert was rightfully proud of his accomplishment, but Diddy’s excitement was apparently more than that as he waved gleefully to the audience and announced that the two were pals and had partied together.
"He was on a boat with me partying in St. Bart's—and now here we are, together!" Diddy couldn’t contain his glee.
Though puzzled with his host’s behavior, Ebert took it in his stride and dealt with the matter rather gracefully.
And then came themoment of the night when Diddy came across someone who wasn’t that tolerant of his antics- Bono:
This missed kiss, cold shoulder show of disdain - or whatever you may call it – was the crowning glory of an evening full of an evening full of awkward moments for P Diddy.
After dodging Diddy as he leaned in for a hug, Bono gave the rapper a stare down to beat all stare downs in history. The U2 lead singer was on stage to receive the award for best original song for "Ordinary Love" from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
