As if introducing the song from Polar Express at the Oscars wasn't proof enough that P. Diddy would show up to the opening of a can of catfood, he spoke today at the funeral of Johnnie Cochran. There were lots of impressive attendees, of course -- Rev. Jesse Jackson, Elmer "Geronimo" Pratt of the Black Panthers -- but Puffy made sure to get a spot at the mic. On April 1st SOHH reported that he's writing a tribute song about the deceased attorney which will feature OJ Simpson in a cameo vocal. Yikes. Either that's a fantastic April Fool's joke, or somebody better keep this guy away from the Michael Jackson trial.
