Last week it was Disney. This week, it's Diddy, or as the star says -- Sean Diddy Combs. Located outside the Hollywood & Highland Center, Puffy's star was dedicated late this morning as a crowd of locals, paparazzi and fans watched him pose before signing autographs. The Associated Press explains that honorees usually show up to these Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremonies and just go through the motions. But not Combs:

He put a video online asking fans to show up for the star-unveiling, set to the tune of Lupe Fiasco's hit "Superstar." He sat down at the Beverly Hills Hotel for advance interviews with infotainment TV shows and The Associated Press. And he's being feted with a lavish party Friday night at billionaire Ron Burkle's sprawling Beverly Hills estate. "It's also like my coming-out party here in Hollywood," Combs told AP. "I don't have nothing to hide about that. If I'm going to come someplace, I'm going to make some noise, and you're going to know I'm here."

Currently spending most of his time in New York City, Combs is looking for a part-time home in Los Angeles to pursue his acting career.
