Mariah Carey

PAINFUL

Lip Syncing Fail (Video)

2/1/2015 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

020115_mariah_carey_launchMariah Carey would have been better off pretending to faint during her concert Saturday night, because pretending to sing was just an epic fail.

Mariah was performing at the 2015 Jazz and Blues Festival Friday, when everything just went to hell.

It starts off bad and then ... well as Reese says, it's just beyond.  She mixes lines, forgets the words and almost just gives up.

It's almost like a blood sport.  Are people going to her concerts to hear her sing, or watch what you see in the video?

Suge Knight

Video of Hit and Run

52 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

0201-suge-knight-victim-on-ground-TMZ-01
Suge Knight will either get cut a huge break or he could be nailed on murder charges, if the video that has surfaced shows the fatal impact.

Sheriff's officials confirm with TMZ ... they are in possession of a video that presumably shows a portion of the hit and run or the entire thing.

TMZ broke the story .... there is no surveillance video.  The recorder from the Tam's parking lot where the victim was struck and killed was not operating and the surrounded businesses tell us they didn't capture it either.

The Sheriff's Dept. won't say what's on the video.  Homicide detectives are analyzing it.

Kim Kardashian

Superbowl Party

I Can Dance and Lip Sync Like Britney!

2/1/2015 7:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

020115_kim_kanye_launch
Kim Kardashian busted a move and lip sank as Kanye West made a surprise appearance Saturday night at a Superbowl party.

It was actually Rihanna's night to perform at the Direct TV party, when Kanye took the stage.  We got hold of the video, and it's pretty awesome.

It looked like an awesome concert ... lots of stars, including John Legend, Chrissy Tegan, Dez Bryant and Mark Cuban.

The night wasn't over when the concert ended.  Kim, Kanye Chrissy and John hit up The Waffle House at 2:30 AM and feasted on bacon melts, and chicken and eggs.

The Superbowl's better on TV, right?

Justin Bieber

Pint-sized Trespassers

In Pool Party Confrontation

2/1/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber TrespassersJustin Bieber lost it with 2 young fans, chewing them out and taking one of their cellphones ... but he was more than justified.

We're told a 12-year-old Belieber decided to celebrate her birthday with a friend last Saturday by sneaking onto Justin's estate.

0130_justin_bieber_house_PCN_2
The girls found an opening in the form of an open gate, went inside and came face to face with Justin who was enjoying the 80 degree weather with friends in his pool.

Justin spotted and then berated them for trespassing -- which frankly sounds reasonable -- and then confiscated one of their very active cellphones.

The girls left and cops were not called. We're told they sheepishly returned a few days later and retrieved the phone.

Getting their dignity back ... not so easy.

Ricky Watters

Richard Sherman Must Play

... Even If GF Goes Into Labor

EXCLUSIVE

013115_ricky_watters_launch
Win the Super Bowl ... THEN be with you family ... that's how Richard Sherman should prioritize if his pregnant GF goes into labor right before the game -- so says ex-NFL star Ricky Watters.

The former Super Bowl champ was rocking his SB ring out in AZ last night when we asked about the real-life dilemma Sherman could be facing tomorrow.

FYI -- Sherman's GF is due very soon ... and in the case the baby decides to make his grand entrance on Super Bowl Sunday, Richard will have to make a choice.

Check out the clip -- Ricky makes a compelling argument ... complete with some very expensive visual aids.

Suge Knight

Surveillance Cams Broken ...

Pointed Wrong Way

2/1/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0130-tams-security-cameras-tmz-01Suge Knight thinks surveillance video will exonerate him, while cops believe it could be the smoking gun that nails him for murder. Well both sides need a Plan B, because the surveillance footage doesn't exist.

The owner of Tam's -- the Compton hamburger joint where Suge ran over and killed Terry Carter -- tells us the security camera trained at the parking lot doesn't work. He got nothin'.

There's a Wells Fargo nearby but we went out there and the cameras don't face in the direction of Tam's parking lot. Ditto the Louisiana Fried Chicken joint and the Rite Aid.

Law enforcement sources tell us they also checked and came up goose eggs. 

They're all on the hunt for someone who might have captured the accident and what preceded it on their cell phone.

Bobbi Kristina

Found Face Down in Bathtub

Drug Search Completed

1/31/2015 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0131-bobbi-kristina-tmz-07Bobbi Kristina was face down in the bathtub when she was found this morning, and police searched her home for drugs ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us when Nick Gordon and a friend found Bobbi Kristina she was on her stomach, and there was water in the tub. It's unclear how full the tub was, but we're told it was enough water for a bath.

The significance, of course, is that Whitney Houston died with drugs in her system ... while taking a bath 3 years ago at the Beverly Hilton.

We've also learned police executed a search warrant on the home this afternoon, and we're told no drugs were found.

Bruce Jenner

Decision to Become a Woman

Made More than a Year Ago

1/31/2015 4:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0131-MAIN-bruce-jenner-infdaily-01
Bruce Jenner
's family is now regularly leaking out stories that have been obvious to all for quite some time ... that the Jenner patriarch is becoming a woman.

The latest leak is to "People," quoting a family source that Bruce is making the change.  As we reported more than a year ago, Bruce underwent an operation called a laryngal shave, to smooth out his Adam's Apple, and at the time our sources were clear ... it was, as one put it, "one of the first steps."

We spoke to Bruce at the time and he said he was "absolutely not" transitioning, but the denial was part of his plan to make the change gradually, which he has done over the last year, to the point it simply became obvious and an announcement became almost irrelevant.  But his decision to transition had been firmly made months before.

Our sources say Bruce is now far along in the process, has undergone various procedures and psychological counseling, and is ready to show his journey to the world.  Our sources say it's so far along his docuseries will air as early as May.

People is reporting his family is supportive but not all family members are on board 100%.  As we told you, the family filmed Bruce's formal announcement to them last month and during the conversation Kris freaked out.  The other kids -- the boys and the girls -- have been more supportive, especially the older ones.

A leader in the transgender community tells TMZ they've know for "way more than a year" Bruce was doing this and some felt he should have announced it when he had the laryngal shave.  But we're told Bruce decided a gradual transition followed by a revelation would be better for him and his family.

And we're told part of the plan to reveal the decision is for various family members to start speaking out. What Kim said this week about Bruce's "journey" was no slip of the tongue.
