Sean 'Diddy' Combs no longer changing name to Love
Sean 'Diddy' Combs has announced that he is no longer changing his name to Love or Brother Love and blamed the initial decision to change his name on drinking too much.

"I had a couple drinks, I was feeling good, it's my birthday," the rap mogul said while speaking with TMZ about the video released on social media Saturday where he first brought up the new Love name.

"So I introduced the world to one of my alter ego's which is love," Combs continued. "But I'm not changing my name. It's already too confusing. It's just something that I added."

Recently, Combs took to Instagram to address fans about the name change writing alongside a video, "I see you can't play with the internet."

"Due to the overwhelming response from the media out there, and just due to there not wanting to be any confusion... I was only joking, OK," Combs says in the clip.

Combs has gone by many names throughout his career including Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy and Diddy.

Which singer surprised fans at a Las Vegas benefit concert?

Celine Dion made a surprise appearance at a Las Vegas benefit concert this week.

The 49-year-old singer performed a version of "My Heart Will Go On" with Steve Aoki at the Hakkasan Group's Vegas Strong show Tuesday.

Dion, who wore a sparkling one-shoulder jumpsuit, hugged Aoki before launching into the Titanic ballad. Aoki, a DJ and musician, danced with the singer after transforming the end of the song into a club anthem remix.

The Vegas Strong concert raised over $1 million for the Las Vegas Victims Fund, according to Us Weekly. The fund benefits those affected by the shooting on the Las Vegas strip in October that left 58 dead and hundreds injured.

"'Our Hearts Will Go On' - Celine #VegasStrong #HakkasanGroup #BenefitConcert #LasVegas #CelineDion #CelineDionVegas #SteveAoki," Dion captioned photos from the show Wednesday on Instagram.

"Two summers ago I made a remix to My Heart Will Go On and debuted it @Tomorrowland," Aoki wrote on his own account. "Since then I've played it across the world and back. I've always wanted to do it live with the queen herself & when we mentioned the #VegasStrong charity event she was down!"

Dion has been in residence at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas since 2011, and will perform into 2018.
