Taylor Swift

Hackers Threaten to Release Nudes

46 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0127-taylor-swift-tweet-hackedTaylor Swift's social media was taken over by hardcore hackers who are now threatening to release nude pics of Taylor. 

Multiple tweets went out from Swift's account this morning ... telling her 71 million plus followers to follow @lizzard and @veriuser -- both of whom claim to have ties to a group of hackers called the Lizard Squad. The messages were also posted on her Instagram account.

The Lizard Squad claims to have hacked major gaming systems -- such as Sony PlayStation and Xbox Live -- last year. They also claim to be behind Monday's Facebook and Instagram outage.

Now, the hackers say they're planning to post naked shots of Taylor.

Swift used her Tumblr page to inform fans she'd been hacked -- and Twitter has shut down the alleged hackers' accounts.

Story developing ...

Brittney Griner & Glory Johnson

Say Yes to the

Very, Very Tall Dress

41 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

012715_brittney_griner_tlc_launch Engaged WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson are 6'8" and 6'3" respectively, so when it came time to find a wedding gown ... they needed help from the folks at "Say Yes to the Dress."

And it wasn't easy. According to our sources, it will actually be Johnson who will be wearing the dress ... while Griner will go with a suit.

During the taping of the episode, set to air Friday on TLC, we're told Glory had to try on a bunch of dresses to find one that fits right ... cause most brides didn't average 9.2 rebounds/game last season.

We're told even though Brittney won't be wearing a gown, she was very active in helping to pick one out ... which is more help than most women get.

Saturday Night Live Cast

We Do Snowbound the Right Way

EXCLUSIVE

0127-keen-colin-instagram-getty-tmz-composite
Snowmageddon has NYC in a state of emergency so Lorne Michaels isn't taking chances ... he said "no" to the snow and shelled out big bucks to put the "Saturday Night Live" staff up in swanky digs.

Some bridges and tunnels are closed until Wednesday and Tuesday is make-or-break ... it's the day they start writing the skits selected for this week's show. So Michaels and "SNL" offered to put the cast up at The New York Palace. 

We're told around 15 cast and crew members signed up for the upscale digs close to 30 Rock, including Kenan Thompson, Colin Jost and a few writers.  

It's just like they say, the snow show must go on.

Kim Kardashian

Bruce is on a 'Journey'

1/26/2015 8:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012615_kimk_et_launchKim Kardashian gave what could be a revealing peek into the life of Bruce Jenner, saying, "I guess I'll kind of let everyone be curious and I feel like that's his journey to talk about."

With rumors swirling about Bruce's ever-changing appearance, Kim seemed to be signaling something significant was afoot.  

She told Entertainment Tonight, "I will say that I think Bruce should tell his story his way ... I think everyone goes through things in life and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right."

Kim and the brood got together a week ago in a show of support for Bruce.

The interview airs Tuesday on Entertainment Tonight.

Usher

OMG, It's Me ...

And I Got Solid Moves

1/27/2015 6:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Next time you blow by a street performer, you might want to make sure it's not Usher.

The former "Voice" judge surprised a huge Venice crowd Monday, when he took off his mask to reveal he was the golden boy with the 24-karat moves. 

You gotta see it ... Usher shines as the crowd cheers for more ... but fear not ... he doesn't need to panhandle. It was all part of a shoot for MasterCard's Priceless Surprise Campaign.

He better save a few moves for the Grammys ... he's nominated for two.

Solid.

Slash

His & Her Tattoos

... With Rebound Girlfriend

1/27/2015 6:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0126-slash-neck-tattoos-TMZ-01
Reconciliation is probably off the table for Slash ... 'cause less than one month after calling off his marriage, the rocker got matching tats with his new GF ... and then MOVED IN with her. 

TMZ has learned ... the 49-year-old decided to prove his commitment to Meegan Hodges by permanently marking their bodies with a matching set of GPS coordinates.  

And if the tats weren't proof enough of a serious relationship -- we've also learned they've moved into a house together in the deep part of the San Fernando Valley ... with Meegan's two teenage daughters. 

As for the home, it's nice ... 3,120 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, a pool and a rooftop deck -- and we're told Slash is leasing it.  

As we previously reported, Slash filed for divorce from Perla Ferrar on December 30th after 13 years of marriage. They have two kids of their own. 

So far, no comment from Perla ... but we're guessing she probably won't be sending a housewarming gift.

Eli Manning

Something's Fishy

About Tom Brady's Ball Habits

1/27/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012615_eli_manning_launch_v3
Eli Manning claims he doesn't give a crap about the pressure in his footballs -- and says the fact that Tom Brady obsesses over it seems incredibly strange to him ... and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

The 2-time Super Bowl champ was a guest speaker at a private function at the New York Athletic Club last week when he was asked for his opinion on Deflate-Gate. 

"I never worried really much about the inflation," Manning said ... "I thought it was kind of strange that [Tom] Brady knew he liked his ball at 12.5 pounds of pressure in the ball."

"That's the minimum number you can have ... seems kind of strange to me."

But get this, Manning says he's not convinced the pressure in the ball "is that big of a deal" ... and claims the Brady scandal is the first he's ever heard of an issue with inflation. 

Manning -- who seems to be the bane of New England's existence when it comes to Super Bowls -- also told the crowd what he thinks could be the key to another Seattle victory.

David Spade

I'm Ridin' Dirty for Six Figures

Scores Classic Movie Car

1/27/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

David Spade Joe Dirt CarDavid Spade has gained a ton of muscle ... under the hood of the nearly million dollar '69 Dodge Daytona he just snagged. 

David fell so hard for the model he drove in "Joe Dirt" and its upcoming sequel ... that he bid $900K on a sick fully-restored version of the Hemi-powered ride at Mecum Auctions last Friday.

The 426-hp copper-colored whip has had several other high profile owners ... like former NFL star Kevin Greene.

The real question: where's Spade gonna put the "Cowboy's Butts Drive Me Nuts!" bumper sticker?

When I Leave Cash Money

I'm Taking Drake & Nicki With Me

1/26/2015 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0126_lil_wayne_drake_minaj_birdman_tmz
Nicki Minaj and Drake are Lil Wayne's goldfish ... 'cause when he finally storms out of Cash Money Records -- a la "Jerry Maguire" -- he's taking them along for the ride ... even if Birdman has other plans.

Our Weezy sources tell us -- in addition to demanding millions from Birdman -- Wayne plans to sue to ensure all his Young Money Entertainment artists remain under HIS umbrella.

Drake, Nicki, Christina Milian, and Lil Twist are all signed to Wayne's label. Mack Maine is also a YME artist, and the label's president.

Even though Birdman was integral in molding Drake and Nicki's careers ... we're told Weezy believes the superstars should go with him because their contracts are with YME. 

Clouding the issue is the fact ... Cash Money has a distribution deal with all of the Young Money artists. Most likely the matter will have to be settled in court, but we're told Wayne's intent is clear -- he's not leaving without his crew.

He said as much on the mixtape track, "CoCo" -- "I ain't trippin', I got Barbie ... I got Drake too."

Kevin Gates

Key Witness in Concert Shooting

... Cops Believe

1/27/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Gates ShootingPolice in Kentucky want a sit down with rapper Kevin Gates after a shooting at his concert -- a crime they think he can help them solve.

Cops were called to Gates' show in Lexington early Sunday morning after shots were fired. One person suffered a non-life threatening wound ... and a few others were hurt when part of the audience stampeded for the exit.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops think Gates' position at the time of the shooting -- up on the stage -- gave him a unique vantage point, and they're hoping he saw something or someone.

If he did, Gates didn't let on that night -- we're told he actually performed 3 more songs after the shooting ... all while standing in the remaining crowd. That seems like an odd move for Gates (who you might remember from that "I had sex with my cousin" thing) ... if he'd just witnessed a shooting. 

We're told cops are getting radio silence from Gates. We've reached out too, and got the same.

Ghost Adventures Star

Demons Be Gone!

Dumps Haunted Pad

1/27/2015 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ghost Adventures Star Sells Haunted Home"Ghost Adventures" star Zak Bagans is through dealing with Satan and his minions ... now they're someone else's problem.

Bagans survived 20 months of a dead housing market, and finally unloaded the house he claims has been possessed ever since he brought home a human skull (for research, of course).

Not shockingly ... that claim didn't really help move the house any faster. 

Waiting out the demon paid off -- we're told Bagans got $445,000 for the house ... an $85K profit. 

As for the new owner, we have a recommendation for a cleaning lady ...
