Star Spotting: Macklemore Calls Diddy 'Puffy' At A VMA After-Party + Lives To Instagram The Tale

Macklemore and Diddy hit up the same VMA after-party.

Macklemore + Diddy = BAD BOYS 4 LIFE.

It's no surprise that Macklemore took his quest to take photos with every celebrity ever to a VMA after-party, because that is PRIME hunting grounds for potential celeb Instas. We've already seen the Best Video With A Social Message-winner eat froyo with this year's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard recipient, Justin Timberlake, and basically WIN at Instagram by posting a totally bromantic photo with Jay Z. Now, Macklemore's zeroed in on Diddy, who just so happens to be holding a bottle of Ciroc! (And we mean that in the way that we "just so happen" to be breathing right now.)

Macklemore posted the above photo of him and Diddy at the PHD VMA after-party along with the caption, "Me and Puffy last night." First thing's first: PUFFY?! Now that ish is #oldschool. Did Mack have to obtain preclearance to drop that now prehistoric moniker on his widely followed social media platform?

Read more about Mack + Diddy's after-party encounter, and watch Macklemore & Ryan Lewis perform "Same Love" at the VMAs.

Second, we wonder if Diddy told Mack something like, "Yo, bro, I totally dug your performance of 'Same Love,' " and then the Seattle-based rapper might've said, "THANKS! Maybe we can hop in the studio together and whip up a remix of "It's All About The Benjamins." Or, maybe they just complimented each other on their very similar gold-chain-bling, discussed the wonderful brand-approved positives of drinking Ciroc, and went on their merry way. Either way, COOL.
