Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros frontman Alex Ebert must have felt a little out of place among all the fancy movie stars at the Golden Globes, where he won Best Original Score for his work on "All Is Lost." But Ebert's acceptance speech proved that he knew at least one person in the crowd: Diddy, whose yacht party he once crashed.

"He was on a boat with me partying in St. Bart's -- and now here we are, together!" Diddy announced before Ebert began his acceptance speech. Now we know what the rap mogul meant by that, thanks to a new interview Ebert gave to MTV's Josh Horowitz at the Sundance Film Festival (where the singer performed a DJ set alongside Kaskade). In the video, the Edward Sharpe honcho explains what it took to make it onto Diddy's yacht despite being "full of dirt." The story involves Eddie Murphy, partying until 6 a.m. and Diddy thinking Ebert's name is Edward. Watch below.
