Given how Sean "Diddy" Combs has frequently changed his name over the years, this shouldn't come as a complete shock.

It looks as if the rapper decided to change his birthdate as well. (Yes, you read that right.)

While the guy officially turned 44 on Monday, Nov. 4, he decided that it was simply too soon to celebrate.

"Its my Birthday Monday and I'm just not ready! TIRED. Real talk. So I changed my BIRthday just for this year # to NOV 16th!" Combs tweeted on Nov. 2.

Hey, why not right?

After all, he is Diddy. Or is it Puff Daddy?

Well, that was the question Ellen DeGeneres recently asked the media mogul when he appeared on her program last month.

"Is it Diddy? Because you keeping changing it," the talk show host inquired. "It was Puffy, it was Daddy, who are you now?"

"I've been in the Puff Daddy spirit because I'm launching this network [Revolt TV] and I had to go back to my roots of aggression and intensity and relentlessness. And, that's Puff Daddy. That's a superhero. It's not technically a name change. It's just that I'm channeling one of my previous alter egos."

Well, happy belated birthday, whatever your name is.
