No Way I'm Voting for Hillary ...

Chicks Are Too Emotional

54 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news


update_graphic_red_bar9:40 AM PT -- T.I. is already issuing a mea culpa. He says, "My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong.  I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended."update_grey_gray_bar Hillary Clinton can't be leader of the free world because she's just too female ... this according to T.I., anyway.

T.I. told DJ Whoo Kid there's no way he'd be casting a ballot for Hillary or any woman. His rationale ... "I just know that women make rash decisions, emotionally ... they make very permanent, cemented decisions."

T.I. claimed he wasn't trying to be sexist, and added he thinks women can handle every OTHER political office, but president is too much (It starts around 13:25 in the clip).

The rapper -- who can't vote because he's got a felony on his record -- said the world just isn't ready to have a woman with her finger on the nukes.

Apparently T.I. hasn't heard of Angela Merkel, Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, or Golda Meir.


Donald Trump

I'm Not Gonna Use 'Dream On'

Even Though I Can

10/13/2015 8:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1013-trump-tyler-tmz-02Donald Trump says he has every right to use Steven Tyler's anthem, "Dream On," but he'll shelve the song because that's what Steven wants and the Aerosmith singer is a big, big fan.

Trump tells TMZ, he's read the cease and desist letter from Tyler's lawyer, threatening a lawsuit if the leader of the Republican pack dares to walk into a crowd again with "Dream On" blaring in the background.

Trump says he bought the right to use the song in public assemblies, along with many other tunes. But since Tyler has been such a good friend and supporter over the years, Trump says he'll move on instead of dream on.

We're told Tyler's gripe is not with Trump ... he just doesn't want his music politicized.

As for what Trump now plans to use as his anthem, he says there are 10-15 songs he rotates, but he favors "We're Not Gonna Take it" by Twisted Sister because he says it connects with the audience. It doesn't hurt that Dee Snider is a 'Celebrity Apprentice' alum who loves The Donald.

BTW ... Trump's still ahead in virtually every poll, and the margin is growing.


Shia LaBeouf to Cops

You Can't Arrest Me, 'Silly Man'

... I'm in the Military!!

breaking news

1013-shia-mug-travis-county-01Shia LaBeouf went on a drunken, profane rant at the Austin cop who busted him, referring to the officer as a "silly man" ... while threatening to attack him.

According to police docs, the officer initially stopped LaBeouf because he and a group of people were jaywalking across a busy street in downtown Austin on Friday night, but the officer quickly noticed Shia's speech was slurred and he smelled of alcohol.

LaBeouf initially tried to back away from the cop, and suggested he let him go for a strange reason. According to the officer, Shia said LAPD usually lets him go because they had killed a friend of his.

When that didn't work ... cops say Shia got agitated and confrontational -- first with the officer and then with someone recording video of the incident. The officer says he had to stop Shia from attacking that person.

LaBeouf's last ditch effort to sway the officer was claiming he's a member of the National Guard, and barked ... "Do whatever the f**k you gotta do!"  

The officer did ... and arrested LaBeouf for public intoxication.

Since Accident

breaking news

1013-tracy-morgan-the-stand-TWITTER-02Tracy Morgan just came back to live comedy with a vengeance ... returning to not just one stage, but two.

Morgan hasn't performed in front of an audience in over 16 months, as he recovered from the devastating Walmart crash ... but Monday night he performed in NYC at both the Comedy Cellar and The Stand.

We're told he absolutely destroyed both shows, as he prepped to host an upcoming episode of "Saturday Night Live."

We're told the crowds were very small ... and absolutely prohibited any recording.

After he finished his second performance at The Stand, Tracy caught a quick bite to eat before heading out.

Welcome back, Tracy ... time to get everyone pregnant.


Justin Bieber

Banned for Pushing Jesus in Middle East

10/13/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1009-justin-bieber-new-album-purpose-ISNTAGRAM-01Topless Justin Bieber and symbols of Jesus Christ -- two things that just won't fly in the Middle East, where Justin's new album has been rejected for being too provocative. 

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Bieber's "Purpose" album is getting the bum's rush in several Middle Eastern countries, as well as Indonesia -- predominantly Muslim regions. We're told the issue is twofold: Justin being shirtless, and the cross tattoo on his chest. 

We're told team Bieber is scrambling right now to come up with an alternate cover for those countries -- 'cause let's face it, the bottom line is pushing the music and making money.

Still unclear at this point what imagery will be on the redesigned cover.

Nicholas Sparks' Ex

Hands Over Stake in Family Mansion

... Still Makes Out

10/13/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012_nicholas-sparks-and-catherine_getty"The Notebook" author Nicholas Sparks is a true romantic in real life ... when it comes to his beloved North Carolina mansion, anyway -- and now he's making sure he keeps it in the breakup with his wife. 

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Nicholas and Catherine Sparks both signed the deed for "Trent Acres" -- the massive family estate -- over to the Nicholas Sparks trust. As you'd expect ... the author runs his trust, so basically Catherine's given him her share of the 24,000 sq. ft. home. 

The Sparks' announced they were separating in January after 25 years of marriage.

It's unclear from the docs what, if any, compensation Catherine's getting for forking over the deed ... but typically there is something called an equalization payment. She's already secured a $1.1 million mini-mansion, just a couple miles away from "Trent Acres." 

Nicholas declared his love for his estate in a video every bit as sappy as "Nights in Rodanthe." Grab some tissues ...


'Bachelorette' Star Ben Z

I'm A Bodybuilder Now

10/13/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012-SUB-ben-z-body-building-TMZ-01'Bachelorette' star Ben Z is more concerned about his rock hard bod than a follow-up run on "The Bachelor." 

Ben surfaced this weekend in San Francisco where he competed in his first bodybuilding competition. He didn't win, but more importantly he didn't finish in last place ... ultimately coming in 8th out of 15. 


Ben tells us he's 210 lbs now ... down 90 lbs from his days as a linebacker playing college football, which is when that "before" pic was taken. He claims he's leaned out naturally with diet and exercise -- sans steroids or testosterone boosters.

Many thought since he was last season's resident hardbodied badass ... he'd be a shoe-in for "The Bachelor." He tells us producers approached him but he didn't get back in time with his answer. 

Spending too much time in the gym, Ben?

Carly Fiorina

First Class Bank Account ...

Still Flying Coach

10/12/2015 3:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012_Carly-Florina_tmz_wmCarly Fiorina's running her presidential campaign on peanuts -- at least in the air, where the $59 million woman is flying low-cost airlines.

We got this shot of Fiorina sitting at LAX -- not in a first class lounge, but just hanging with the general electorate in the terminal, waiting to board a Southwest flight, aka ... NO FIRST CLASS!!

Fiorina was on her way to Oakland for business meetings, according to her press secretary.

Our sources at LAX tell us she was in the first boarding group -- A22, to be specific -- so at least she probably nabbed an overhead bin for her carry-on.

[Ding] Carly is now free to campaign about the country.

Britney Spears

$7 MILLION Steal for New Mansion

10/12/2015 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1013_britney_pears_Thousand_oaks_mansion_launchIf you want to know where Britney Spears' massive Las Vegas paychecks are going -- feast your eyes on the huge estate she just snatched up outside Los Angeles!

Brit closed on the 13,264 sq. ft. palace on Friday, according to our real estate sources, and she got it for an amazing $7.4 million. It's not often you hear that kinda price called "a steal," but we're told that's how it's being described in celeb housing circles. 

Here's why -- besides the 5 beds and 7.5 baths ... Brit's new crib sits on 20.98 acres, has tennis courts, AND an infinity pool. She can also work on her golf game (if she's got one), since there's a 3-hole course on the grounds!

Brit's becoming a land baron -- she already owns another property in the area, but she's living in a rental right now.

If there's a downside, it's the $1,836/month in HOA dues. We suspect Britney will find a way to make ends meet.
