In honor of the Olympic Games, we asked Sean “Diddy” Combs about his favorite sports to watch last night at his spring-summer 2009 Sean John presentation. And faster than you can say “Michael Phelps just won gold again,” he answered, “Track and field!” He is a runner, after all. (Could anyone forget that groundbreaking New York–marathon MTV special?) So what if there were a new Olympic sport, something he himself might have a chance of winning, we asked. What would that be? “Who could have sex the longest,” he told us in a soft voice and with a straight face, while looking into our eyes. Was that a pick-up line? We weren’t sure, but we tingled anyway. “I think that’s an event I can do well in. And probably who could stay up the longest.” Dirty! “Just so you know, that’s supposed to be funny,” he added as an afterthought. “Even though I am serious.” But who would be his competitors? “Whoever’s up for the challenge.” You heard him, folks! Any sex athletes out there willing to challenge the Diddy? —Sharon Clott
