Rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs stops by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Thursday (Feb. 16) to talk about his Oscar-nominated documentary titled “Undefeated,” but also talks about the passing of fellow musician Whitney Houston.
On the passing of Whitney Houston:
Ellen: I know that you were one of the first at Clive Davis’ party to speak about Whitney’s passing the other day. Did you know her well?
Diddy: Yes, I did. I actually when I was growing up in the music industry before I had success I somehow got on her wedding invitation. So I was at her wedding but I didn’t really know her but it was one of the hottest things in town for the music industry …I didn’t crash the party. Somehow you know, I was a hustler. I got my name on there me, plus one. I was just like, oh my god. I’m at Whitney Houston’s wedding. I was a big Bobby Brown fan. Throughout the years I got to meet her. She was so full of life. So full of just joy. She always made you feel that she noticed you and recognized you and spoke to you. She’ll definitely truly be missed.
Ellen: She will. I agree. She was an amazing talent and it’s heartbreaking really. It’s very, very sad.
