Breaking News

0225-donald-trump-white-house-tmz-getty-2President Trump just put an end to any and all hope he'd attend this year's White House Correspondent's Dinner.

Trump tweeted Saturday, "I will not be attending the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!"

The event, to be held at the end of April, is put together by an organization of journalists who cover the White House and President. The dinner is usually hosted by a comedian who has some fun at the President's expense ... however, a host for this year's ceremony had not yet been announced. 

According to The Washington Post, since 1924 each President has attended at least one of the annual dinners ... President Obama attended all 8 of his. 

update_graphic_red_bar2:50 PM PST -- Jeff Mason, the WHCA president just released a statement, saying, "The WHCA takes note of President Donald Trump's announcement on Twitter that he does not plan to attend the dinner, which has been and will continue to be a celebration of the First Amendment and the important role played by an independent news media in a healthy republic." 

He continues, "We look forward to shining a spotlight at the dinner on some of the best political journalism of the past year and recognizing the promising students who represent the next generation of our profession."

Breaking News

0225-natalie-portman-gettyThere's clearly something in the air in Hollywood -- first Beyonce cancelled her Coachella gig, and now Natalie Portman's skipping out on The Oscars -- and it's all because she's about to pop. 

Portman, who's nominated for best actress for her role as Jackie Kennedy in "Jackie" will also skip Saturday's Independent Spirit Awards where she's got a nom for best female lead.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Portman said, "Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards. I feel so lucky to be honored among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends."

You'll remember ... Beyonce announced Thursday she'd miss Coachella in April thanks to doctor's orders as she's expecting twins ... looks like Portman's followed suit.

Nicki Minaj Remy Ma Unleashes On New Diss Track ... 'F*** Nicki Minaj'

2/25/2017 11:24 AM PST

0225-remy-ma-nicki-minaj-tmzRemy Ma has come out swinging in a new diss track targeting Nicki Minaj ... and with lyrics that include, "f*** Nicki Minaj," she's definitely not hiding any feelings. 

Internet speculation grew Friday that Minaj had thrown shots at Remy in recent features and it appears Remy believed she was getting attacked too, because she dropped the diss track just 24 hours later. 

Ma's "Shether" is a nearly 7-minute slaughter of Nicki, with cover art that features Minaj's Pink Barbie persona cut into pieces.

As for the lyrics, Ma doesn't hold back ... saying, “You stole that line about bitches being your sons. How you take my ’09 jail tweet and run. Talkin’ ‘bout bringing knives to a fight with guns. When the only shot you ever took was in your buns."

And we thought Drake and Meek Mill was nasty ...

Breaking News

0225-baker-mayfield-mug-shotOklahoma standout and Heisman finalist Baker Mayfield was arrested after allegedly yelling profanities, "caused a scene" and running from cops after an altercation.

According to the police report, Mayfield was in Arkansas early Saturday when the incident happened. An officer was waved down to take an assault and battery report and asked Mayfield -- who had allegedly been trying to break up the altercation -- to stay so he could give a statement. Reports say that's when Mayfield went nuts, cussing and making a scene. 

The report says Mayfield had slurred speech, trouble walking and was covered in food. Mayfield allegedly sprinted away from the officer and once tackled, refused to cooperate. 

The QB and Heisman hopeful was arrested for public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing.

A statement from the school says, "We are aware of the matter and are learning the details."

0223-beyonce-coachella-INSTAGRAM-02Beyonce's Coachella cancellation didn't cause resale prices to plummet ... in fact, it's been quite the opposite -- tickets actually went up in price.

Coachella insiders tell us it just reinforces the fact ... fans of the festival are going for the experience and not one particular headliner.

As TMZ reported, the festival was almost completely sold out before Beyonce's appearance was announced. There clearly wasn't an avalanche of resales on the market ... otherwise the prices would have dropped.
