'Trap Queen' Rapper Fetty Wap

I Didn't Get My Eye Shot Out!

That Should Be Obvious

33 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Now that Fetty Wap is blowing up with his hit "Trap Queen" ... he wants to clear up the biggest rumor about how he lost his left eye, and says the truth is as obvious as the nose on his face.

We got the rapper in NYC after a late night TV appearance ... and just as Fetty was schooling our photog about losing his eye to glaucoma -- Fetty's mom popped up and taught him something he never knew about the eye.

You also gotta hear him explain why all that talk about him getting blasted with a shotgun ... makes ZERO sense. Watch ... you will definitely say, "Duh!"

'Walking Dead' Star

Arrest Vid Partly Released

Put Your Hands Where I Can See 'Em!

5/6/2015 7:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

"The Walking Dead" star Seth Gilliam took police on a 4 minute high speed chase down a highway before they cuffed him and hauled away ... and the whole incident was captured on dash cam video.

Cops in Peachtree City, GA busted Gilliam early Sunday morning and said he was doing 107 mph when he blew past them -- and you can see in this video ... he was definitely flying low.

When officers finally pull him over ... one of the officers yells, "I need your hands where I can see 'em. Come back here." Gilliam steps out and immediately gets cuffed while the officer explain he's being arrested for reckless driving.

Now, the odd part -- the video cuts off right after the handcuffs go on Gilliam. Cops say they also found a joint in the car, and Gilliam said he'd had 3 beers and a shot. Seems strange that portion of the arrest video wasn't released.

Peachtree City PD tell us, "It's part of a criminal investigation and anything related to evidence that could prosecute him won't be given out until the investigation is over."

Nails the High Notes

EXCLUSIVE

Mariah Carey is unreal ... we got audio of her full dress rehearsal for her Vegas show which opens tonight, and she sounds as good as she did in 1990 when she hit #1 with "Vision of Love."

Mariah performed for more than an hour Monday night to a packed house at The Colosseum at Caesar's Palace, and you gotta hear it. She hits every high note and sounds flawless.  

We got audio from someone in the audience ... filled with various people who work in Vegas-related businesses. We posted a minute-and-a-half and sampled 4 songs. Wait till you hear her hit the high notes in "Emotions."

As for the naysayers who claimed she wasn't rehearsing enough ... whatever she did was clearly enough.

You're Welcome, Swifties

EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift owes Jason Alexander everything ... at least that's the way he feels because as it turns out he's not only a huge fan, he kinda put her on the map.

Word is Jason did his best Tay Tay impersonation during a Karaoke fundraiser at L.A.'s El Rey Theatre -- and outside he revealed their little known connection. 

It's all courtesy of a Brad Paisley music vid Alexander directed back in 2007 ... when Taylor was just starting to blow up in country music -- but Jason had her doing something besides singing.

Who knew? Costanza's just as country as Taylor! Well, sorta ...

Prez Obama

6-Pack Smuggling

In the Oval Office ... Still!

5/5/2015 3:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

When President Barack Obama leaves the White House, he's taking something with him -- his six-pack(ish) abs ... according to his trainer who says El Jefe is still a workout freak.

Our photog in D.C. spotted Cornell McClellan, a member of the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition -- and, more importantly, the man who keeps B.O. and the whole First Family in shape.

McClellan said it's not as tough as you'd think to bark out commands to the leader of the free world -- since, as he puts it ... Obama is "raging against death." Kinda strange for a guy who's only 53, but whatever.

As for the six-pack starter kit the Prez had right before winning office? It seemed to be fading in 2012, but McClellan explains why Obama's no lame duck in the gym.
