7/30/2016 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Malia Obama was just like thousands of others in Chicago Friday -- enjoying the outdoors and music at Lollapalooza -- except she had one of the best seats in the house. 

Malia was spotted dancing on the side of the stage with a few friends for Mac Miller's set during the 4-day music festival. It clear to see, she's having a great time.

Talk about a Presidential perk. 

Soulja Boy Armed Robber Wanted His Cash ... Shot His Boy Instead

7/30/2016 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The armed robber who put a bullet in one of Soulja Boy's friends Friday was actually there for Soulja himself ... sources are telling TMZ.

We broke the story ... a bday guest of Soulja got shot in the arm outside of a recording studio in Hollywood. The victim is Killa J -- one of Soulja's artists. Sources connected to Soulja tell us he now suspects it was all an inside job.

We're told Soulja and his entourage noticed a black Ford SUV with four men in it waiting outside as they showed up to the studio to celebrate his 26th birthday ... and thought nothing of it at first.

As they wrapped up the party ... we're told Soulja's crew checked security cameras and saw the vehicle was still there. Killa J stepped out first to see what the deal was, and that's when four men rolled up and demanded Killa J give up Soulja Boy's Gucci bag, which is usually where he carries large amounts of cash.

We're told they asked for Soulja by name too. Probably not coincidentally ... he'd been flashing his bday stacks on social media during the party. 

According to our sources, Killa J refused to cooperate ... and that's when bullets started flying and the Memphis rapper caught one in the arm. He's expected to recover.

Cops say they don't have any suspects yet.

Carmelo Anthony When It Comes To Team Singalongs ... Count Me Out

7/30/2016 10:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Carmelo Anthony is a lot of things -- 9 time NBA All Star, former NBA scoring champ and he won an NCAA title -- but when it comes to belting out Vanessa Carlton, he just isn't a fan. 

Melo was caught on video by his US Olympic Basketball teammate DeMar DeRozan looking awfully salty while DD, Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler sang their hearts out.

We're not sure if he was just tired or flat out hates "A Thousand Miles" (if that's possible?) ... but that scowl is one for the ages. 

Take it away, Terry ...

7/30/2016 10:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0730-texas-balloon-scene-lauren-lanmon-kxan-01A hot air balloon went down in flames Saturday and officials say it appears none of the 16 passengers survived the crash.

According to reports, the accident happened just north of Austin, Texas around 8 AM. Cops say the call first came in as a possible vehicle accident but when they arrived, it was determined the wreckage was from a balloon.

Caldwell County Sheriff Daniel Law told local reporters investigators are currently working to determine the number and identities of victims at this time.

The FAA and NTSB are also on scene ... it is believed the balloon may have struck power lines. 

Tyler Posey Sorry, Everyone ... I'm Not Really Gay

Breaking News

Tyler Posey is withdrawing his coming out -- 24 hours after a big bold video announcement that he's gay, but wants everyone to understand that he really does support the gay community.

The star of "Teen Wolf" posted a Snapchat on Friday that was VERY clear. He walked up to a street sign that read "Gay St." ... and yelled, "I'M GAY!!" 

Turns out, Posey says ... he was only doing that to show, "I fully support the LGBTQ community. This was a moment intended to reflect that."

The 24-year-old actor clearly understands that what he did will piss off a lot of people. He added, "I am truly sorry to the people I've off offended or lessened how big coming out is. I just want to spread love in this world."

Bikini Model Trump Defends the Border ... Of My Boobs & Butt!!

7/30/2016 7:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0730-liziane-gutierrez-gal-launch-spl-01Donald Trump got caught in the middle of a classic L.A. thirst trap ... set by a Latina model, no less.

Liziane Gutierrez hit the beach Friday sporting a white bikini with the GOP candidate's face on her nipples and just above her ass crack.

We'll say this, the Brazilian model -- most famous for suing Chris Brown and a nightclub run-in with Jason Derulo -- is no dummy. If you're desperate for attention, putting the Donald all over your bits will do it.

If she's really an eager beaver though ... Liziane will try a Hillary two-piece. 

Nick Jonas Republicans Threw Millions at Me Too

7/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0729-nick-jonas-gop-TMZ-01Nick Jonas was wanted by the GOP -- much like Justin Bieber -- and the party was also willing to hand Nick millions for a concert, but there was one critical difference.

Our Jonas sources tell us Nick's people got an offer to play a free concert in Cleveland on July 24th. The show was intended to be a thank-you to the people of Cleveland for hosting the RNC.

We're told Nick was offered somewhere in the $2 million neighborhood to play the gig, and a "private donor" would pay him directly.

We broke the story ... Bieber received a $5 million offer to play a similar concert near the RNC, but turned it down for a number of reasons -- including manager Scooter Braun's close ties to Hillary Clinton.

Interestingly, we're told the person working with the GOP told Nick's people the show would be "an All Lives Matter" event. As we reported ... Justin's people were told they could not display "Black Lives Matter" banners if he performed, but "All Lives Matter" signage was okay.

Our Jonas sources say there was no way he could have done the Cleveland show anyway, because he was already scheduled to appear at a Roc Nation event in NYC.

Sorry, GOP ... Jay Z's got way more pull with Nick.

Kylie Jenner My Crib's a No-Snakes Zone ... Big Ole Rattler Found

7/30/2016 7:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner had an unwanted, slithering guest at her house Friday ... and to get rid of it, she called in L.A.'s finest to literally chop it's head off. 

It appears the rattlesnake was found while someone was doing yard work at Kylie's Hidden Hills crib. Her BFF Jordyn Woods shot the whole thing as the LAFD came out to take care of the snake ... with a ceremonial beheading.

No word on if Kylie was there to witness the surgical strike, but the takeaway here is -- not ALL long dark things are welcome in Kardashian-Jenner households. 


Will Smith Makes Surprise Visit to LAPD

7/30/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0726-will-smith-tmz-01Will Smith turned more than a few heads when he made a couple unscheduled stops at LAPD stations last week, but we've learned he meant business when he arrived.

Sources close to the actor tell TMZ, Will showed up last week at 2 stations -- including the Wilshire division -- to do a little homework for his cop role in the upcoming thriller "Bright." While he was there, we're told he personally thanked the boys in blue for their hard work.

Law enforcement sources tell us the visits -- he also hit up LAPD's downtown HQ -- were great for morale ... especially in light of recent tensions.

We're told Big Willie did his research for the role, took a few pics ... then bounced.
