Puff Daddy, aka P Diddy, aka Sean Combs, aka Sean 'Diddy' Combs, plopped himself down on the stairs at during the swanky Met Gala's red carpet in New York last night and became instant meme-fodder.

The 'I'll Be Missing You' singer straddled the stairs like a tucked out cat while his date – US singer and model simply known as Cassie – posed up a storm for the cameras.

Well, the movie mogul and rapper revealed all on his Twitter account, in which he explained that he simply got too tired during the red carpet, so needed to take a rest on the stairs.

The 47-year-old, who was wearing a suit with a central star design spiralling from the middle, epitomised every poor man, woman and child having to wait for someone else while they shop.
