Sean Combs

Sean Combs made his Broadway debut as Walter Lee Younger in the classic Lorraine Hansberry play A Raisin in the Sun. In 2008, Combs reprised the role (and served as an executive producer) for ABC's televised adaptation, which went on to be nominated for three Emmy Awards. For his role in the telefilm, Combs won an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special.

Combs made his professional acting debut in the feature film Made. He then starred as Lawrence Musgrove, opposite Halle Berry, in Monster's Ball, for which he received much critical acclaim.

Combs is the CEO and founder of Bad Boy Worldwide Entertainment Group, a multifaceted entertainment powerhouse. He is also a Grammy Award-winning music producer who counts Aretha Franklin, Sting, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige and Janet Jackson among the many artists with whom he has worked. Combs has also released four multiplatinum albums and won his third Grammy Award for the No. 1 song Shake Ya Tailfeather, from the Bad Boys II soundtrack. This summer, Combs will debut his sixth studio album, Last Train to Paris, with his new group Diddy-Dirty Money.

Since the inception of his clothing line Sean John, Combs has been praised for his innovative and sexy approach to fashion. His efforts were recognized in 2004 when he received the prestigious Perry Ellis Menswear Designer of the Year Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).

Additionally, Combs launched his first fragrance, Unforgivable, in 2006 with cosmetics giant Estée Lauder, which quickly became the No. 1-selling fragrance across America.
