Diddy laid his dreams of NFL team ownership out for all of Twitter to see last night. While he was doing that, Paris Hilton was gearing up to catch "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" with a few people who probably knew a thing or two about what was happening on the show.
Meanwhile, Friday stirred up a picture storm in Twitter-Wood as usual, with Ice-T linking to some fan art he received and Zack Snyder pausing for a self-portrait taken with his iPhone. Find out what those look like after the jump along with what Richard Kelly thinks of "Jackass 3D" and some anti-Twitter rage from the account of Jim Carrey.

Disproportionately large numbers of picture tweets continued to be a Friday trend today, with another on-set shot of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" showing up from Jerry Bruckheimer, Ludacris hanging out with Paul Walker, and Rose McGowan showing up to a USO event with an actor you may recognize from "Sons of Anarchy."
Jon Favreau continued to update everyone about the production status of "Cowboys and Aliens," while Eli Roth and Diddy both joined the critical praise pile-on for "The Social Network." Find out if you agree with them and why Shaq says Kevin Garnett got mad at him after the jump.

Apple's new Ping service for iTunes prompted a declaration from "Big Fish" screenwriter John August today, and he's obviously been hanging out with Mac products for some time, given his outlook for it. Elsewhere, director Jason Matzer gave a micro-review of George Clooney's new flick "The American," and though we already new Eli Roth loves "The Last Exorcism," we didn't know he liked it enough to puke for it.
There was plenty of excitement in Twitter-Wood in the last 24 hours, too. Diddy seems to have sworn off cheeseburgers, while Demi Moore and Miley Cyrus got to get together for a small group shot with their fellow cast members from "LOL" and Jon Favreau picked a ride to go on with Olivia Wilde.
Find out what they jumped on after the break. I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is Twitter-Wood for September 2, 2010. Read More...
"Eclipse" cast members, Twitter-Wood entourages and MTV News all converged on the new "Twilight" film's premiere yesterday, and everyone who didn't make it can feel free to live vicariously through the posts that resulted after the jump.
Today, meanwhile, marks one year since Michael Jackson passed away, and Mariah Carey and Diddy both spoke out via Twitter about his death. June 25, 2009, was one of the busiest days the Twitter-Wood feed has ever seen, by the way. If you'd like to read a collection of tweets from the day of Jackson's death, feel free to look back into our archives.
As for today's retweets, they're all listed below in the world premiere of Twitter-Wood for June 25, 2010. Read More...
As an accomplished musician, entrepreneur, executive, art enthusiast and, most recently, hilariously funny actor, Diddy gets to see a lot of cool stuff and meet some equally cool people. He most recently hung with legendary musician, composer and producer Quincy Jones, a guy who has worked with a diverse assortment of major stars: Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Will Smith, Michael Jackson... the list goes on.
One of Jones' bigger accomplishment is his role as producer on Michael Jackson's hit album "Thriller." Diddy, being a man who appreciates his music history, couldn't skip the opportunity to snatch a photo of himself posing beneath Q's giant framed "Thriller" gold record display. You can see it for yourself after the jump. Read More...
As advertised, "Get Him To The Greek" proved to be a two-hour-long ride of inebriated chaos and drug-induced hilarity (if Diddy ever offers to introduce you to "Jeffrey," turn him down). Despite its frat-boy appearance, the "sort-of-spin-off of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" ended up raising some interesting and unexpected moral dilemmas.
Jonah Hill's character, a more serious incarnation of his Infant Sorrow-obsessed waiter in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," is a record label intern who gets his first big break bringing Russell Brand's Aldous Snow to perform his 10th anniversary concert at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. The job ends up not being what he signed up for, and his realization that his dream job isn't what he expected it to be leads to some surprising conclusions about the music industry and life.
Needless to say, spoilers ahead... Read More...
It's dizzying to think how much goes into the creation of the MTV Movie Awards. Up at the Gibson Amphitheatre, the tech crew is furiously constructing the show's set and setting up the red carpet area. Celebs can be seen moving to and fro to rehearse their roles for the big night. Behind the scenes, scores of dedicated folks are working out tons of logistical issues, bookings, schedules and more. And inside the writers' room, a bunch of hilarious men and women are scripting much of what you'll hear on TV come Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET.
MTV News, forever dedicated to bringing you exclusive sneak-peeks during Movie Awards week, snuck into that room to scope out what the writers are dreaming up. Check out the video below to see what presenters Russell Brand, Diddy and Jonah Hill — the cast of "Get Him to the Greek" — will be saying when they take the stage.
Jonah: We're here to present the award for biggest Breakout Star.
Diddy: The three of us represent all walks of life. From hip-hop entrepreneur… Read More...
Even if you've been following the odd saga of Joaquin Phoenix over the past couple years, it's still difficult to separate the facts from the fiction. In mid-2008 it was learned that the actor was switching gears in his career to focus on creating music, specifically hip-hop. This shift quickly became the subject of a documentary, directed by Casey Affleck, about the move. Phoenix is getting plenty of support for his music, with rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs reportedly mentoring him. So when MTV's Josh Horowitz sat down with the prolific rapper/producer/music executive/actor at the "Get Him to the Greek" junket, he had to dig a little deeper into what's going on with the Phoenix.
According to Diddy, the the actor is "for real." Hear it from the man himself in the below clip:
I'm writing this from JFK airport as I'm about to journey to the second leg of what will be a three city tour with the cast of "Get Him to the Greek"--namely Russell Brand, Jonah Hill, and Sean Combs. You see, the comedy plays very much as a road movie crossed with "My Favorite Year," so I'm hitting three of the towns visited in "Greek": NYC (not too hard since I live there), Las Vegas, and LA.
"My Favorite Year" may have had Peter O'Toole, but as I recall no one stole scenes with the fervor that Sean "Diddy" Combs does in this. I know. I was shocked too. But trust me, pound for pound he's delivered the funniest performance of the year so far.
I sat down with Diddy yesterday and he gave me a sense of what's to come in our travels together. Stay tuned. Vegas is next!
