Nothing is more embarrassing at an awards ceremony than a) falling over or b) fluffing lines while reading the autocue, right?
Errrr, except if your name is Sean Diddy Combs and you manage to do both at the BET Awards 2015. WE’RE NOT LAUGHING, YOU ARE.
Diddy, 45, saw his life flash before his eyes during his performance, which was celebrating 20 years of Bad Boy Records, as he joined the likes of Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, 112 and Lox on stage.
It was all going swimmingly, with the #squad performing a medley of past hits against a background of a Notorious BIG video montage.
However, when Diddy tried to walk back towards the main part of the stage, everything went a bit Pete Tong thanks to a rather large and unmarked hole.
Alright, WHOSE JOB WAS IT TO PUT THE TRAFFIC CONES AROUND THE BIG DROP? OWN UP.
Diddy’s unplanned attempt to drop it like it’s (a) hole definitely was not hilarious and we definitely didn’t even let out a single laugh when we watched.
Even if this photo does make it look like he just wanted the best seat in the house:
It’s happened to the best of us, Diddy.
Taking to MazSight to laugh at his own mishap like a jolly good sport, he wrote: “I was getting so loose I fell! LOL, but really though I busted my ass! #finnaGetLoose #AppleMusic … Puff Daddy & The family feat @pharrell … IF YOU EVER FALL DOWN, get your ass up and FIGHT!!!!!!!
“But really though, I crack up every time I see this s**t! It’s like I f**king disappeared. HAAAAAA!!!! I was scared as f**k but I had to get up! #BADBOY.”
Nicely done, love.
Sadly, this wasn’t Diddy’s only red-faced moment, with the Daily Mail also reporting that he fluffed his teleprompter lines when presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award to 75-year-old Smokey Robinson.
Asking producers to rewind the teleprompter so he could ‘do it right’, he told the crowd that he was sorry and that he was ‘nervous’ beause of the big Bad Boy music celebrations.
We’ll let you off.
Could all musicians and other celebs stay away from any large holes from now on, please? We don’t need any more Dave Grohl-esque injuries, thanks.
