And it don’t stop.

Rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs was celebrated today (Oct. 13) in Chicago

with his own day–his second such honor. According

to the Associated Press, Mayor Richard Daly declared today as Diddy Day

and presented Diddy with a set of cuff links bearing the city’s seal.

He also called

the entertainer "a great role model." In May 2005, Las Vegas declared

May 14 as Diddy Day. Diddy,

who is CEO of Bad Boy Entertainment, is currently on a national tour promoting

his upcoming album Press Play, due in stores on Oct. 17.

In related

news, four members of Diddy’s girl group Danity Kane were involved in a car accident

last evening (Oct. 12) in Toledo, OH and were sent to a local hospital with minor

injuries. The

girls were en route to a sound check for a concert at Club Headliners around 7:00

p.m. when the accident occurred. "Four

members of the group and road managers were in a limo heading to Headliners when

they were struck by another vehicle traveling at about 45 miles per hour,"

the group’s spokesman Tim Miller told local affiliate NBC 24. "They were

all taken to St. V’s where they were treated and released." Danity

Kane, which consists of group members Dawn, Aubrey, D. Woods, Shannon and Aundrea,

was featured on Diddy’s MTV’s reality series Making the Band 3, which he

executive- produced and starred in. Fans

were notified of the mishap around 10:50 p.m., about 45 minutes after the group’s

scheduled performance time. "They

were pretty banged up with bumps and bruises," Miller said. "Under the

circumstances we felt it was best to cancel."
