EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar

1:45 PM PT -- Hiddleston finally apologized Monday via Twitter for the "inelegant" choice of words during his speech. Hiddleston says he was only trying to salute the bravery of UNICEF UK, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and World Food Programme, and the children of South Sudan when his nerves got the better of him.

update_grey_gray_barTom Hiddleston is defending his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes ... a speech that some critics say smacked of "white saviorism."

We got the 'Night Manager' star at the Chateau Marmont in WeHo Sunday night ... where Tom doubled down.

You'll recall, Tom -- instead of calling for peace in the South Sudan -- said he was "immensely proud" his show provided relief to aid workers.

Tom's handlers didn't want him giving our guy an answer ... but Tom took charge.

BTW ... UNICEF gave Tom props after the speech.

Green Day Anti-Trump Chant Was Shock to ABC

11/21/2016 7:42 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar10:20 AM PT -- The anti-Trump chant was not pre-planned or withheld during rehearsals, it was a last minute decision by the band ... according to AMA sources.update_grey_gray_barGreen Day kept its plans to blast President-elect Donald Trump under wraps, never giving ABC or American Music Awards producers any warning ... TMZ has learned.

Witnesses at AMA rehearsals tell us Green Day performed its new song, "Bang Bang" ... but never included the chant, "No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!” ... which they added during the live broadcast. The performance ended with a standing O. We're told ABC execs were completely off-guard.

It's unclear if Green Day knowingly kept the chant out of rehearsals, or if Billie Joe Armstrong made a last minute decision to include the political message.

We've got a call in to their reps.

Prince Bickering Family to Come Together at AMAs

11/20/2016 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1120-prince-american-music-awards-GETTY-01Prince's siblings have called a truce in what has become an intense war over his estate ... and they're actually coming together Sunday night to pay homage to their late, famous bro.

Sources connected with Prince's estate tell us, the singer's sister, Tyka Nelson, has organized a trip to L.A. for the entire brood.  Prince's "Purple Rain" snagged a posthumous nom for Top Soundtrack, and you know the drill ... there are few surprises, so we're guessing he'll win.

As for why "Purple Rain," released in 1984, is nominated this year ... the noms are based in part on sales, and after the singer's death the album hit #2 on the Billboard 200.  Other nominees include "Star Wars:  The Force Awakens" and "Suicide Squad:  The Album."

FYI ... the AMAs last year were Prince's last TV appearance.

Rose McGowan CMA Bosses ... 'A Bunch of Chicken S***s'

11/3/2016 3:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rose McGowan is disgusted at the people who posted racist comments about Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks, but she's even more pissed off at the CMA honchos who bowed to the "deplorables" by scrubbing CMAWorld.com of all things Bey and Chicks.

Rose is reacting to the TMZ story ... the CMA bosses panicked when they saw some users lash out against Beyonce and the Chicks in the comment section of the site and on social media ... some calling Bey the n-word and others saying country music is for white folks only.

The CMAs have flip-flopped a second time ... reposting some of the items.

Beyonce, Dixie Chicks Scrubbed from CMA Website, Social Media After Racist Fans Comment

11/3/2016 1:48 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

1103-beyonce-cma-awards-gettyupdate_graphic_red_bar2:45 PM PT -- The CMAs have started repopulating its social media with images of Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks. The images were only posted AFTER they became aware we were working on the story.

Even the Dixie Chicks, who rarely say anything in the media these days, are reacting to the controversy on Twitter.

1103_dixie_chicks_tweetThose reposted images of Bey on Instagram and Twitter are already getting blasted with comments -- some racist and some in support of Beyonce. We'll say this ... the Beyhive is woke.

1103-bee-bomb-beyonce-cma-awards-instgram-03update_grey_gray_barThe folks at the Country Music Awards don't have the stomach for 4 strong women, 1 of whom is black, because they have scrubbed all references and images of Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks from their website.

The performance of Beyonce's hit, "Daddy Lessons," with the Dixie Chicks was by all rights the highlight of the show. Thursday morning Bey and the Chicks had a prominent presence on CMAWorld.com. But check it out now ... it's gone ... completely.

Sources directly connected with the CMAs tell TMZ, the honchos folded to fans who posted racist and other harsh comments. We're told the honchos were especially concerned about the reaction to Beyonce's support and the support of the Dixie Chicks for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Some of the comments included, "That's right folks. Beyonce performed at the CMAs last night & is on a mission to take country music away from us, hardworking white people!" And, "Beyonce overrated racist n***er bitch."

The comments go on ... "@Beyonce the cop hater? No thanks," and, "What place does @Beyonce who vilifies police officers who keep us safe have to do with #CMAawards50?"

In addition to its website, the CMAs have scrubbed the women from all social media platforms. They did not delete the women from Snapchat ... they only deleted the ladies from CMA accounts where users can place comments.

We're told the CMA people "just want this to go away" and feel it was probably a mistake to invite the 4 women in the first place.

Fun fact: Miley's Moonman is engraved with her name and Jesse's.
