Rapper Diddy, who you might also know as P. Diddy, Puff Daddy and/or Sean Combs, fronted an all-star reunion of Bad Boy artists at the BET Awards in Los Angeles today, and there was one particular moment, between hits, that caught everyone’s attention.
We’re talking here about the moment when Diddy dropped briefly out of the camera’s sight, when he fell through a trap door in the middle of the stage.
Why a trap door, you ask? Good question. Well, as it later became clear, the not-so-hidden hole in the ground was there so that Lil’ Kim could make a helluva dramatic entrance later on in the set. Which she achieved by all accounts, despite having her some of her dramatic thunder stolen by Diddy.
Consummate professional that he is though, Diddy used his strength – probably gained from all his kettlebell action of late – to hoist himself out of the hole and continued the performance as if he hadn’t just hilariously fallen through a trap door. Bless.
“I was getting so loose I fell! LOL, but really though I busted my ass!” Diddy wrote later on Instagram. “IF YOU EVER FALL DOWN, get your ass up and FIGHT!!!!!!! But really though, I crack up every time I see this shit! It’s like I fucking disappeared. HAAAAAA!!!! I was scared as fuck but I had to get up! #BADBOY
Can’t stop, won’t stop.
