Memo Pad: Out, But Remaining... Beauty Alone... Swapping Spots...

Martha McCully is packing it in after almost six years as executive editor at In Style - at least, her full-time gig.

ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT DIDDY: Sean Combs didn't know that Time's "10 Questions" live event Wednesday morning would be more intense than an average meet-and-greet, but he took an hour to answer questions from Time readers on his career trajectory, the New York marathon and which of his many names would go on his headstone (Sean John Combs, if you were wondering). The event, held at Time's Midtown offices, is an expansion of the "10 Questions" feature in the magazine and on its Web site. The magazine invited Combs to tape an interview with managing editor Josh Tyrangiel in front of an audience, and the video will go up on today with an edited story appearing in the Time issue out Friday. During the interview, Combs compared himself with P.T. Barnum when describing his multifaceted career as an entrepreneur, fashion designer and entertainer. He also said he gets his news from television, not newspapers, because it's hard to focus. Combs also admitted he didn't have the same hunger for news as journalists after launching and shuttering his own title, Notorious, in the late Nineties. "There could be something that happens and you all can leave me sitting here," he said. "It's just a lot of work." — S.D.S.
