Sean Diddy Combs

Happy Birthday isn't in order for Sean "Diddy" Combs, this year. The mogul opted out of celebrating his birthday on it's actual day which is today (Nov. 4th) and instead will celebrate it on the 16th. He took to twitter to inform everyone of his new birthdate—for this year only. The rapper tweeted to his followers: "ATTENTION!!!!! MY BIRTHDAY IS NOV 4TH BUT THIS YEAR ONLY IM CHANGING IT TO NOV 16TH. THE 4TH CAME TO EARLY IM NOT PREPARED! IM TIRED, MY SWAG IS OFF AND BOTTON LINE IS IM JUST NOT READY! SO LET’S BE CLEAR! I CHANGED MY BIRTHDAY JUST FOR THIS YEAR TO NOV 16th! SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE SCORPIOS!!! #diddyNewBday"

He just launched a network catering to all the music so we're giving him a pass hoping he's ready to turn up in two weeks. Here's 16 reasons why we're giving the music mogul a pass this year on celebrating his birthday on a different date.

At one point we all secretly wanted to be a Ciroc girl/boy. Admit it, he started a alcoholic movement and we've all fallen victim to the greatness of his brand.

Diddy

Name Change

He has so many different name changes (Puff Daddy, Diddy, P-Diddy, etc.), we barely know what to call him these days.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
