Miley Cyrus

My Nipples

Gotta Be Free

36 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

1228-miley-cyrus-topless-INSTAGRAM-01Miley Cyrus did not suffer a nip slip ... instead she offered a nip TIP to the world -- as in, GET YER YA YAS OUT -- and it instantly took over the Internet. 

Miley showed out for the "Free the Nipple" campaign by posting a topless Instagram with a caption taunting people to report her whappers-gone-wild. Surprisingly, it stayed up much longer than celeb nudes usually do. We're guessing Instagram takes holidays off too.  

Right before the boob shot ... Miley also posted a series of mocked up images pushing the message ... which has also been touted by Chelsea Handler, Rumor and Scout Willis, and Cara Delevingne.

Miley's social media game is on point.

Amy Pascal

Yes, My Job Is On the Line ...

And Obama MIGHT Have Called Me

12/28/2014 6:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

122814_amy_pascal_launch
Sorry, Seth Rogen -- but no one is pulling for "The Interview" more than Sony Pictures honcho Amy Pascal ... because a flop could mean it's curtains for her at Sony.

Pascal fielded a bunch of questions -- about the Sony hack, yanking the movie, only to release it after all -- when she flew into LAX Saturday night.

It's the first time she's addressed the controversy in public -- and the most telling part is Pascal's response when asked if the initial $1 million-plus box office take for "The Interview" will save her job.

You gotta see it. Oh, and she's also asked about the conspiracy theory -- that President Obama leaned on her and Sony to put the movie out.

Let's just say ... Amy seems to have learned her lesson when it comes to leaks.

Mama June

Reunites With Chickadee

But Not For Free

12/28/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1227-june-shannon-anna-chickadee-shannon-check-TMZ_01Mama June and Chickadee's feud over money and Mark McDaniel is over after they smoked the peace pipe this weekend -- a very expensive peace pipe. 

June tells TMZ ... she and her daughter Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell started squashing their beef once June forked over a check for $15,400. Anna had accused June of swiping the cash out of her trust fund. 

1227-anna-chickadee-shannon-check-TMZ_02
June says there was no theft ... the fund had dwindled because she was using it to pay Chickadee's expenses -- mobile phone bill, spending money, and rent (she has her own place) -- for 2 years. She says the new check is Chickadee's last payday from 'Honey Boo Boo.' 

As for McDaniel -- June's ex-bf convicted of molesting Chickadee -- June told her daughter and the whole family she hasn't seen him since September, and plans to keep it that way.  

June tells us she knows they won't be able to completely patch things up overnight -- but says she video chats with Chickadee twice a day, and they've agreed to "move on." One positive sign -- Chickadee brought her daughter Katilyn to hang with June -- which she previously refused to do.

Solange Knowles

Nailed By Taxman

Days After Marriage

EXCLUSIVE

1223-solange-knowles-01
While Beyonce shops for $70 million homes, her sister Solange is getting dogged by the taxman almost immediately after she got hitched.

Solange needs to settle up with the State of California, which claims she owes more than $55,000 in taxes for 2010-12.  

And to add insult to injury ... the tax lien was filed 3 days after Solange tied the knot.

Meanwhile, back at the homestead, Mathew Knowles is having a marathon garage sale where he's hawking Solange's CDs for $1.96. A Beyonce poster is going for $200.

Life ... it isn't always fair.

Sacramento Kings Heiress

I'm Not Bangin' Tyga

... We're Just Friends

12/28/2014 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1223-anjali-tyga-twitter-01The daughter of Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé tells TMZ Sports ... yes she's tight with Tyga -- but there's absolutely ZERO boot-knockin' going down between them. 

As we previously reported, Tyga has been spending a LOT of quality time with Anjali Ranadivé (aka Anjali World) ... who happens to be an aspiring singer. The two were seen getting off a private jet together earlier this month leading to speculation they were romantically involved.

But Anjali tells us, "We're just friends and working on music together."

We're told the two met through her manager ... and Anjali says they hit off (in a platonic and professional way) -- and have been hitting the studio together ever since.

They've already recorded one song together which they performed at a recent Kings game (see video below.)

"I look up to him musically," Anjali says ... "and I can't wait to make even more music with Tyga in the future."

The "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" parody with Michael Brown lyrics is really shocking ... we couldn't believe the song when we got it. And Sony is still in freefall. So we gotta ask ...

Jessica Alba

Sorry 'Honey' ...

No Suit For You

EXCLUSIVE

Jessica Alba Honey Lawsuit

You can't take anything away from Jessica Alba ... not even her critically panned movie 'Honey' -- the courts have dismissed the Bronx b-girl's lawsuit claiming Universal jacked her life story.

As we first reported ... hip-hop dancer/teacher Honey Rockwell sued the studio for millions, saying she never gave them permission to make the movie that mirrors her life. She claims she busted out the "Honey" stage name more than 20 years ago ... way before its release.

But a judge decided her claims came too little too late and says the studio was protected by the First Amendment -- that means, no matter how bad it was, the movie was artistic expression. 

Rockwell says she couldn't file sooner because she wasn't familiar with the film industry and didn't know who to sue ... the court said that's no excuse and decided she also doesn't own any rights to the name.

Alba's piece of crap is safe.

Chris Brown & Karrueche

Working It Out

After Nightclub Sweet-Talking Session

12/27/2014 3:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1227-chris-brown-karrueche-tmz-01Like a cheesy holiday romantic comedy ... Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran flipped their relationship back to "on" -- all because of a run-in on the eve of Christmas Eve.

Sources close to the couple tell us Chris had been trying to reconnect with Karrueche following their nasty public break-up ... but KT wasn't having it until Tuesday night at Playhouse.

We're told they chatted politely inside the nightclub until Chris asked her to go somewhere more private to talk about giving the couples thing another shot.

Karrueche agreed ... and we actually shot them on the way out of the club to go have that convo.

The final nail in the coffin came Thursday when they went to Sean Kingston's "Christmas with the Kingston's" party -- together. Based on this photo ... the talk went well. Again.

Dustin Diamond

Cops Want Alleged Stabbing Video ...

But It's Shaky

12/27/2014 9:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1227-dustin-diamond-port-washingtion-pd-TMZ-01Police in Wisconsin are on the hunt for video that would prove "Saved By the Bell" star Dustin Diamond stabbed someone ... starting with surveillance footage from the scene of the crime.

Grand Avenue Saloon owner Randy Buser tells us he was contacted Friday evening by authorities looking to review the bar's video footage ... and they agreed to meet today.

Law enforcement officials tell us they requested the video to see if Screech was the stabber ... and to figure out what everyone's involvement in the brawl was.

However, the bar owner tells us the cops should lower their expectations -- he says his surveillance footage is very jumpy. 

Diamond's still in jail ... waiting for someone to post his $10,000 bail.

Sony

Salary Leaks Causing Chaos

In Negotiating Contracts

12/27/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sony Salary Leaks
The Sony hacking has made negotiating contracts with stars and suits almost impossible ... TMZ has learned.

Sony and other industry sources tell us ... the salary leaks have triggered intense anger ... especially with execs who think they've been screwed because the guy in the next office has a sweeter deal.

We're told some execs are furious at the bonus structure they got, because they believed they were top of the heap when they weren't. One source said some contracts have already come up for renewal and "Sony's getting nailed to the wall." 

Same principle applies to movie and TV stars, who now have comps to use against the studio.

Several agents and entertainment lawyers tell TMZ ... they feel totally comfortable using the salary comps, but one Sony exec thinks it's shameful for reps to use stolen information in negotiations.

Here's how bad it's gotten. Sony's files have been wiped clean, and we're told the studio is now calling agents and lawyers who represent Sony big wigs, asking them to make copies of deals and proposed contracts that they can send back.
