This election has had record-breaking voter turnout but -- seems it all comes down to one big ego.

Singer, rapper, cologne maker, producer and egotist extraordinaire Diddy believes he is solely responsible for the new president.

"I felt like my vote was the vote that put him into office. It was down to one vote, and that was going to be my vote. And that may not be true, but that's how much power it felt like I had."

Yep, that "may not be true."

But Diddy said he believed he was potentially making history by voting for the first African-American president in U.S. history, and also felt the weight of the past in the voting booth.

"I'm not trying to be dramatic, but I just felt like Martin Luther King, and I felt the whole civil rights movement, I felt all that energy, and I felt my kids," he said.

"It was all there at one time. It was a joyous moment."
