Puffy's TV spot
13:30 04 February 2005
Puff Daddy is set to be the face of an anti-acne cream.
The hip-hop star, famous for his outlandish lifestyle and carefully manicured appearance, will appear in a series of 30-minute TV adverts in America for Proactiv Solution.
The star, who has dated some of the world's most desirable women including J.Lo and Naomi Campbell, will admit he suffered from terrible spots as a teenager and has to work hard to keep himself looking good.
He says: "I definitely had an acne problem. I have to make sure my sexy look is right all the way."
Meanwhile, Puff is launching an audacious £50million bid to buy one of Andrew Lloyd Webber's London theatres.
The rapper is currently in talks with the legendary stage composer - whose musicals include 'Cats' and 'Phantom of the Opera' - to buy one of his struggling theatres in the West End so he can turn it into a nightclub.
A source said: "He wants to remodel it as the classiest club in London. No expense will be spared."
If successful, the proposed club will be the latest venture Puffy - real name Sean Combs - will add to his £150million empire, which already includes a clothing brand, two restaurants and a music marketing business.
