Robo-Kanye Lords Over Kardashian Brood And A Bunch of Dummies

8/27/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-kanye-west-figures-revealedWorry not ... the Kardashians are still alive and well, and so is Taylor Swift, Donald Trump and Chris Brown. They're all silicone and part of Kanye's big L.A. art exhibit. Problem was ... Kanye was in NYC.

The art exhibit features the life size celeb figures from 'Ye's "Famous" video  ... each was handcrafted over several months and equipped with breathing mechanisms to give them a lifelike feel. We're also told the hair on each figure was placed one at a time ... talk about detail. 


So check out his solution ... it's super awesome. Kanye appeared in robot fashion, manipulating the device 2,500 miles away with a joystick so he could chat up the room.

If there was any doubt Diddy and Cassie were actually back on good terms -- let it be put to rest -- because the two spent her bday together.

In a video from Cassie's 30th Friday night, you can see an overly-excited Diddy shouting happy birthday to his gf. The rapper also posted a birthday montage for Cassie, saying, "I love you always."

So safe to say, fight officially officially over.

Breaking News

0827-dwayne-wade-tmz-02Dwayne Wade's cousin, a 32-year-old mother of 4, was killed in Chicago Friday in what the NBA star is calling an "act of senseless gun violence."

Nykea Aldridge was pushing a baby stroller in Chicago's Parkway Gardens neighborhood when two men opened fire on another.  Aldridge was caught in the crossfire and struck in the head and arm ... she was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

0827-Nykea-Aldridge-facebookWade said Friday night, "My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough"

You'll remember ... Wade took the ESPYS stage a few months ago with Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul to spread a message of peace and to end senseless violence.

Paris Hilton I Feel Bad Kim and I Burned Tara Reid

8/27/2016 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton has regrets over humiliating Tara Reid in one of the most epic videos in the history of TMZ.

It's the 10-year anniversary of Paris and an unknown -- Kim Kardashian -- sauntering into Hyde nightclub in WeHo, as Paris' former BFF and then enemy Tara Reid watched behind the velvet rope. Paris gave Tara a stare will will live in infamy.

But on her way into LAX Friday, Paris said she feels bad about the whole thing.

Too bad there was no 10-year anniversary reunion of the Lindsay Lohan/Brandon Davis/Paris Hilton "Firecrotch" video.

Get those dollar bills ready, Chi-Town ... it's about to go down next week when V Live Chicago opens its doors, and TMZ has video of the wannabe strippers looking to twerk the poles.

We're told over 1,300 people poured into the Hard Rock Hotel for an insane casting call that featured strippers strutting their stuff in VERY flexible ways ... we'll leave it at that.

Around 160 will end up getting hired.

The job fair looked for everything -- strippers, bartenders, waitresses and security. But check out the vid ... the strippers had the joint cracking ... and totally outdid T.I.'s casting call in Atlanta. 

Throw it up, throw it up ... 

Britney Spears Flaunts It Before VMAs

8/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Britney Spears is deploying her super hot body in an all-out media blitz ... before the eve of a huge appearance at the VMAs and right after the rollout of her new album.

We got the cover of "Flaunt" magazine, which is about to come out, the day before she hits the stage for what we're told is a high-tech performance to push her new album. Our VMA sources say there are no big surprises -- like a Madonna kiss or 12-foot python -- it's all about music.

Britney is everywhere ... her James Corden Carpool Karaoke went viral, she and Kanye are the clear stars of Sunday's VMAs, and her album, "Glory," just dropped.

BTW ... Britney said on Corden's show she was done with men. She was serious, at least in terms of the VMAs, because we're told her backup dancers for the show are all women.
