Fergie at NBA All-Star Game Roasted for Slow & Sexy Nat'l Anthem ... Hollywood Piles On

2/18/2018 7:39 PM PST

Fergie sang the National Anthem to kick off the 2018 NBA All-Star game, and most everyone seemed to hate it ... including Hollywood.

Tons of stars blasted Fergie for her sultry rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner Sunday night ahead of a mega showdown between Stephen Curry and LeBron James' all-star squads. Charles Barkley wanted to dive right in afterward ... but Shaq wouldn't let him.

Leslie Jones had some thoughts, too ... wondering "Why did this happen?" and even suggesting the organizers might as well have had her sing it.

Hell, even a state senator from Oklahoma got in on the hating. 

Draymond Green's reaction was probably the best, though. It was live and raw, and there was no hiding how he really felt about it ... LOLOLOL. Yeah, that about sums it up.

Keep your head up, Fergie. There's always next year ... or not.

O.J. Simpson Plant Your Ass in 'Naked Gun' Chair ... For the Right Price

2/19/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

More of O.J. Simpson's crap can be yours -- like his set chair from "Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult" -- but his ass ain't behind this piece of memorabilia.

The guy who owns the chair tells TMZ ... he bought it for $500 in the early 2000s and says it's the one he used during the filming of the 1994 flick -- the same year O.J. was arrested and charged with the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.

The guy says the chair once fetched as much as $5,000 from another auction site, but pulled the plug. It's now on eBay and the asking bid's $1,495.

As for why the guy's selling now ... these days he's more into collecting musician items. And with O.J. free and out on parole, maybe the lucky buyer can get O.J.'s John Hancock on the new chair.

Aaron Rodgers to Danica Patrick Here's a Lucky Kiss For Your Last NASCAR Race

2/18/2018 2:31 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Danica Patrick went into her final NASCAR race ever with a good luck smooch from Aaron Rodgers ... and while the event might be her personal finale, this pic might be a debut.

TMZ Sports has obtained a photo of the new couple giving each other a kiss ahead of Danica's last NASCAR race of her career -- the 2018 Daytona 500. After this, she's retiring. 

Eyewitnesses tell us Aaron and Danica puckered up right after the National Anthem ended, before she got into her car at the starting line. 

As we reported ... Danica and Aaron went public with their relationship after we posted photos of them out to dinner with some friends in Arizona. They were also recently seen at their first coupley event a couple weeks ago in Cali. Now, this appears to be their first public kiss caught on camera.

Unfortunately, Danica suffered a crash during Stage 2 and couldn't complete the race. She might not have placed ... but we'd say she was already winning from the start.

Travis Scott 1st Words on Baby Stormi 'She's Beautiful'

2/18/2018 2:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Scott gave what might be the first public update on his and Kylie Jenner's new baby girl -- and, believe it or not, she's a good looking kid ... so says dad.

Paps got Travis Saturday night leaving Poppy, where he actually responded to a camera guy's question about how newborn Stormi Webster is holding up. It's short, but descriptive.

As we reported ... Travis is proving to be a changed man in light of his first child coming into the world, and this video is just more evidence of that. The Houston rapper usually clams up around the paparazzi ... now he's opening up, as slow as it might be. 

If you can't tell ... this is one proud papa. 

The Game Chill Over Cardi B's Crip Diss ... She Meant No Harm

2/18/2018 1:17 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Game wants everyone who's pissed at Cardi B for dissing the Crips to chill out and let the whole thing go ... 'cause he says she meant nothing by it.

We got the Compton rapper Saturday night at Penthouse in WeHo, where he'd just seen Cardi perform ... one of 3 stops she's making for All-Star weekend. He says he spoke to her about her inciting Crip comment, acknowledging the seriousness of the situation.

Our camera guy asks if he defused anything between Cardi and the Crips, but he denies getting involved. He does come to her defense, though ... telling folks who were offended to relax, and to also respect Cardi's position as an East Coaster.

Not sure if that'll go a long way coming from a guy who's Blood affiliated. But hey, take it for what it's worth. 

Kate Middleton at BAFTA Awards A Little Green on Time's Up? Breaks All-Black Dress Code

2/18/2018 12:33 PM PST

Kate Middleton either wasn't aware or simply didn't care about the suggested all-black dress code for Time's Up at the BAFTA Awards -- 'cause she went another way.

Kate and Prince William attended the annual award show Sunday in England, hitting the red carpet in a dark green gown while her hubby rocked a classic black tux. 

It's a notable fashion choice, especially since most of the big stars of the night stuck to the blackout we saw during the Golden Globes. Actresses that wore black include Angelina Jolie, Margot Robbie, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomie Harris, Lupita Nyong'o, Salma Hayek, Octavia Spencer and others.

Whether she didn't get the memo, or just didn't want to weigh in on a controversial issue ... Kate definitely made a statement.

Jamie Foxx The Renaissance Man strikes again -- this time sending NBA legend Byron Scott back to school during an impromptu shooting contest. 

Jamie and Byron were attending an All-Star-themed event Saturday night at the Jeremy hotel in WeHo, where they got into a little three-point shooting contest on the fly. 

Eyewitnesses tell us Jamie drained at least 3 shots from distance out of 10 ... while Byron hit NONE. Yes, Byron Scott -- who's known as a three-point guru -- hit zero 3-pointers.

The discrepancy didn't go unnoticed, especially by Jamie. He points out what most everyone already knows about the dude -- he can kinda do it all. Game, hats.

Kanye West Performs During NBA All-Star Weekend

2/18/2018 7:24 AM PST

Kanye West was hangin' with Kendall Jenner's ex A$AP Rocky Saturday before performing for NBA All-Star Weekend.

Kanye and A$AP were leaving his Calabasas studio Saturday afternoon before the concert.  

Kanye performed with Kid Cudi Saturday night at an Adidas event in Downtown Los Angeles.  Kanye first introduced Cudi, and then with Cudi's help, performed "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" which is off his 2016 album, "The Life of Pablo."

It marks Kanye's first live performance in nearly a year.  

TMZ broke the story, Kanye's been working on a new album for months.  He's gone on a retreat several times in Wyoming by himself to write songs.  As for why he was in the studio with A$AP, we're guessing they might be doing a collab for his new album.

Rich the Kid's performance at a Hollywood nightclub as part of NBA All-Star Weekend was interrupted in a big way after a man was seen brandishing a gun in the parking lot.

Cops descended on Lure nightclub after getting the 911 call, and the video is gripping and dramatic.  You see police with guns drawn ordering people out of their cars.

People inside the club ran for cover into the streets as an army of cops searched for the suspect.

Nipsey Hussle Shots Fired At Album Release Party

2/18/2018 7:02 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

11:45 AM PT -- Sources close to Nipsey tell TMZ he wasn't present for the shooting. We're told he was performing across town at the Shrine Auditorium for YG's concert, and planned to arrive to his own event afterward. Obviously, that got scratched. Shots were fired at a Nipsey Hussle album release party Saturday night in L.A., and someone got hit.

Someone started shooting in the parking lot outside World on Wheels, a roller skating rink in Venice.  One person was shot in the thigh.

Cops swarmed the area on the ground and in the air.  The shooter got away and police were left high and dry after the victim refused to cooperate. 

The shooting went down at around 11:30 PM.  We're told people inside the roller rink freaked out ... many fearing it was a repeat of what happened Friday in Florida. 

Police didn't see Nipsey after the shooting.  It's unclear if he had already left.

The party was unrelated to NBA All-Star weekend festivities.  It was a celebration of Nipsey's album, "Victory Lap."  

Twista Involved in Brutal Fight with Drunk Dude During NBA All-Star Weekend

2/18/2018 7:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Twista rendered a man helpless while his friend repeatedly pounded away at the guy.

It went down after Twista left the Michael Jordan party in Bel-Air during NBA All-Star Weekend.  A shuttle took party-goers from a parking lot to the home where the shindig was going down.

At around 1:30 AM Saturday, Twista had taken the shuttle back to the parking lot and apparently got into it with a guy who had been heckling people on the shuttle bus.  He apparently was harassing several women on the bus and generally being obnoxious.

We're told the guy started recording one of the women, saying, "I want to see the face of stupid."

Twista came to the defense of the women and the guy challenged the rapper once they got off the bus.

Twista obliged.
