Kanye West Private Screening For His Film with Dame Dash

1/20/2018 11:13 AM PST

Kanye West threw a party in honor of Damon Dash's new movie -- in which Kanye's an executive producer -- and a bunch of celebs were there ... but definitely not Jay-Z.

Ye held a private screening for "Honor Up" Friday night in Calabasas and surprised all the guests with some movie merchandise too. We're told Dame was on hand along with Pusha T, Claudia Jordan, Daniel Dneiko, A-Trak, Terrence J and of course, Kim Kardashian.

As you know ... Kanye and Jay haven't spoken in a long time, and Dame and Jay-Z were once biz partners but had a major falling out -- but it looks like it's all good between Kanye and Dash.

"Honor Up" gets released next month.

EXCLUSIVE

Al Michaels thinks the Pats have what it takes to beat the Jags and make it to another Super Bowl ... with or without their legendary quarterback.

We got one of the voices of 'Sunday Night Football' at Madeo Restaurant in Weho Friday night, and talked shop about some NFL matters. Al suggests it's no sure thing Tom Brady plays Sunday due to his hand injury, but even if he's out New England can prevail ... because there's no 'Tom' in 'team.'

Michaels also chats with us about Brady's former backup, Jimmy Garoppolo, and says he'll be happy for whoever replaces Jon Gruden in the booth for 'MNF' ... as long as it's not his 'SNF' partner.

Donald Trump Weirdly Jokes About Government Shutdown

1/20/2018 6:46 AM PST

You'd think President Trump would be solemn the day the federal government shut down over a budget impasse, but instead he used his favorite platform to use jokes laced with sarcasm to describe his feelings.

Trump tweeted, "This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats want to give me a nice present." He also screamed, "#AMERICA FIRST!"

He's using the shutdown to push Republicans in this year's elections, saying "#WeNeedMoreRepublicans18 in order to power through mess."

What he didn't address is how he's going turn the lights back on.

Kanye West Chicago Makes Me Smile!!!

1/20/2018 7:15 AM PST

Kanye West is basking in the glow of naming his daughter.

Kanye was all smiles Friday in Calabasas as he arrived at his design studio. As we reported, Kanye and Kim named their newborn Chicago, although they immediately decided she'd be known as Chi.

Kanye and Kim didn't pick the name before their daughter was born, presumably because they wanted to eyeball her and see if her face triggered a name. 

Kanye was raised in Chicago and still has deep roots there, so it makes a lot of sense. 

Venus Williams I May Have Lost Australian Open But I Got a Big Consolation Prize!!!

1/20/2018 7:57 AM PST

Venus Williams didn't look like someone who just got knocked out of the Australian Open, because she seems relaxed as can be with her BF.

37-year-old Venus, who lost on the opening day of the tourney, took a stroll with Nicholas Hammond on Hamilton Island in Queensland, Australia.

Venus and Nicholas seemed oblivious to the entourage that followed them.

They started dated pretty recently. Nicholas, who's 25, was Venus' plus one at little sister Serena's wedding. 

Hammond is the heir to the TV Guide fortune.  

Donald Trump Whatever He Touches (Or Eats) Turns to Gold ... On Wall Street

1/20/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

In case you haven't heard -- especially from him -- Donald Trump's first year in office has been great for the stock market ... but 3 companies in particular have benefited bigly from their association with the Prez.

TMZ did some research, and found that the stock price of McDonald's -- which Trump loves to eat, Twitter -- which Trump loves to tweet, and KFC -- another fast food favorite ... have all seen huge gains since he became president on January 20, 2017.

Mickey D's has seen the biggest boost so far during Trump's time in office -- its stock has risen 44% over the past year.

Twitter's close behind with a 42% increase, and many argue the Prez's usage of the social media platform is keeping it in business.

Yum! Brands, which owns KFC, has also seen a substantial 29% increase.

As we reported, Trump's physical this week "went exceptionally well" ... but he did discuss dieting with his doctor.

Gotta think 2 of these companies are rooting against that.

1/20/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Josh Duhamel may look like he's on steroids -- as he says, "Look at me!" -- but it's all an illusion.

Josh was in a jokey mood Friday at LAX when our photog asked about allegations that he -- along with Mark Wahlberg and WWE star Roman Reigns -- scored steroids from now-imprisoned dealer, Richard Rodriguez.

Josh did a little flexing under his jacket and made us believe he's juicin' ... but in the end, he called BS.

As we reported, the 3 guys don't have to worry about a DEA investigation or anything ... but it seems like none of them were anyway.

Tom Petty Lake House Hits Market for $5.5m

1/20/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Petty's oasis for over a decade can be yours ...  at a bargain price.

The late singer's crib in Lake Sherwood -- a ritzy area near the famed Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA -- hit the market for $5.495 million. The 5,300 square foot pad has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms but one of the best features is 125 feet of lake frontage on a private cul-de-sac.

It's built for a rock star -- the walls are 2 feet thick!!! And talk about location, location, location -- the house is 3 minutes from the country club and just 9 miles from the Malibu coast.

Tom bought the crib back in 2007 and put it on the market just a few months before his shocking death back in October. It was initially listed for $5.895 million but was listed just days ago with a discount.

Amy Alcini and Dana Sparks of Compass Real Estate rep the sellers.
