Ever the host, Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs vowed at a London press conference Monday to toss “a big ol’ party” in Barcelona as up to one billion fans select this year’s MTV Europe Music Award winners, to be presented Nov. 14, Reuters reports.

But when asked his choice for Best Female Award winner — given that his ex, Jennifer Lopez, is up the prize — he tactfully told a reporter that he’d “get back to you on that one … I am going to think about it and make sure I don’t say the wrong thing.”

As for the show, Diddy modestly promised, “There is not going to be a dull moment. I really don’t think it gets no sexier than this — MTV, Barcelona, Diddy.”

As for the setting, he said, “I love Spain and I love Spanish women — that is a little plug for myself. I love all women, I love women no matter where you are from. Just be in Barcelona.”

When nominations were announced Monday, Eminem, Pink, Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Coldplay and Kylie Minogue led the pack, each picking up four nominations, followed by U2, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nelly with three apiece. Linkin Park, No Doubt, Nickelback, Jennifer Lopez, Lenny Kravitz, Korn and Royksopp all garnered two nominations. Other nominees include Avril Lavigne, Britney Spears, the Hives, System of a Down, the White Stripes, Moby and the hostmaster himself, P. Diddy.
