As a good friend of Whitney Houston, Sean "Diddy" Combs was one of the first people to speak about her passing at Clive Davis' memorial/pre-Grammy party on Saturday. Diddy spoke about his relationship with the fallen legend in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres set to air Thursday.
"When I was growing up in the music industry, before I had success, I some how got on her wedding invitation," said Diddy. "So I was at her wedding but I didn't really know her but it was one of the hottest things in town for the music industry ... I didn't crash the party. Some how, you know, I was a hustler. I got my name on there me, plus one. I was just like, 'Oh my God! I'm at Whitney Houston's wedding.' ... Throughout the years I got to meet her. She was so full of life. So full of just joy. She always made you feel that she noticed you and recognized you and spoke to you. She'll definitely truly be missed."
