Sean "Diddy" Combs is making his kids proud.
How so? The music mogul, 53, is set to receive the Global Icon Award at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 12.
The honor, according to the network, "celebrates an artist or band whose unparalleled career and continued influence have achieved a unique level of global success in music and beyond." He'll join a prestigious group too as past winners include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, Janet Jackson, Bon Jovi and the late Whitney Houston.
He has even more to look forward to than the coveted award. After all, the "Bad Boys For Life" rapper is nominated in four other categories—including Best R&B for "Creepin' (Remix)" with Metro Boomin, The Weeknd and 21 Savage; Best Hip-Hop for "Gotta Move On" with Bryson Tiller, Ashanti and Yung Miami; as well as Best Collaboration for both releases.
Plus, Diddy, who served as host for the show 18 years ago, will be taking the Prudential Center stage in Newark, New Jersey to rock the mic—making it his first VMAs performance since 2005.
In addition to Diddy, Shakira will also be honored during the 2023 MTV VMAs as she receives the Video Vanguard Award. Like Diddy, she'll be taking the stage to sing during the ceremony, marking her first VMAs performance in 17 years.
And while Diddy has accumulated countless fans over his decades in the music industry, his biggest supporters are his seven children, who are certainly eager to cheer on dad. To learn more about them, keep reading.
