Aaron Rodgers Buys Worst Girl Scout Cookies ... At Oscars

2/29/2016 6:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0229-olivia-munn-girlscout-cookies-INSTAGRAM-02First off ... props to Aaron Rodgers and his girlfriend Olivia Munn for reaching into their pockets and shelling out some cash to help the Girl Scouts at the Oscars Sunday night. 


(FYI, Savannah Smiles are  zesty, lemon-flavored cookies dusted with powdered sugar ... which sound fine, but they're no Thin Mints). 

The good news ... Munn got a full box of Thin Mints, because she clearly has taste.

Oscars host Chris Rock says he ultimately raised more than $65k in his Oscars Girl Scout cookies stunt -- including $20 from Vice President Joe Biden

Hopefully, he got something better than SAVANNAH SMILES!!!

2/28/2016 6:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Rock went all in on the #Oscarssowhite controversy during his Oscars monologue, but perhaps no one got it worse than Jada Pinkett Smith.

Rock was responding to Smith's video last month in which she stated she was boycotting this year's Oscars, but Rock was quick to point out ... she wasn't close to getting nominated anyway.

2/26/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


The Academy Awards are luring celebrities to their lavish gifting suites by showering them in things like beauty treatments, lavish vacations and even a simple pack of gum. 

GBK, the fancy event planning firm that gives away high-priced Oscars swag every year, is posting up at the London Hotel. This year they're providing $20,000 worth of freebies which includes some low key items -- a $130 3D printing pen, and $15 vegan gum. 

The big ticket swag though is the $8,000 trip for 2 to St. Martin, and a $1,500 laser treatment ... to burn fat around your abs. Seriously. There's also an $8,000 coupon to a Beverly Hills vision center.

That's a crap ton of sunglasses.

2/25/2016 8:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0225-tomlinson-edwards-splash-01Louis Tomlinson tossed bro code out the window by hitting the town with his old One Direction mate Zayn Malik's ex fiancee.

Louis and Perrie Edwards were spotted Wednesday night taking a car together after the Brit Awards. Perrie and Zayn broke things off in August -- about 5 months after he left the group.

0225-louis-tomlinson-danielle-campbell-AKMGSI-01Last night could've just been a convenient carpool sitch though, since Louis has been tight with actress Danielle Campbell lately.

Besides, even Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono see each other from time to time.

Look it up, 1Ders. It's relevant.

2/25/2016 6:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Straight Outta Compton" got big props on Wednesday night, winning big at the All Def Movie Awards, but the biggest winner was Ice Cube.

The ceremony was held in Hollywood, clearly a response to the lily white, upcoming Oscars. 'Compton' won Best Picture. Most Quoted Movie went to "Friday" (Ice Cube got the award), and Best Black Survivor in a Movie went to Ice Cube for "Anaconda."  

Michael B. Jordan won best actor for "Creed," Will Smith got the Lifetime Achievement Award, and Norman Lear snagged the Vanguard Award.  

Our favorite ... the "Most Likely to Steal Your Girl Award' went to Amber Rose.

Tyrese told our photog it's not really the "black" Oscars ... it's for everyone.

Breaking News

Adele's got Kesha's back ... and she just used a huge public platform to let the world know it. 

Adele was accepting an award for Best Female Solo Artist at The Brit Awards -- which are going down Wednesday night in London. She went through the usual thank yous ... shouting out her management and record label for embracing the fact she's a woman.

And then Adele brought up Kesha's legal battle with Dr. Luke. It was a remarkable endorsement from the most popular artist in the world  -- especially coming one day after the videotaped deposition ... where Kesha said Luke did NOT rape or drug her. 

No surprise ... the crowd went nuts for Adele's show of support.

Mike Tyson thinks Leonardo DiCaprio's famed Oscar drought should come to an end this year ... saying that Leo's killed it in "The Revenant" and deserves to take home a gold trophy.

Mike was freezing his tookus off in NYC when we decided to ask his cinematic opinion about this year's Oscar nominated films.

Here's the thing ... he ain't exactly Leonard Maltin but does say he caught Leo's bear battling performance in 'Revenant' and thinks it might be time for DiCaprio to be king of the world.

Take heed, Academy voters ... you better get it white next week ... whoops, we meant right.

Coldplay Award Show Table Trashed by Band They've Never Heard Of

2/18/2016 8:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Coldplay got a lesson in old school rock 'n' roll in the middle of an award show when a singer went berserk and destroyed the band's dinner table. 

Bring Me the Horizon lead singer Oli Sykes was either being supremely douchey or pulling off a brilliant PR stunt at Wednesday night's NME awards in London -- but during their performance Skyes jumped on Chris Martin and co.'s table and just trashed it.

Skyes claims it was "in no way in protest to Coldplay," but BMTH has publicly bitched that Coldplay's new album art copied their "Sempiternal" album.


Skyes chalked it up to sound problems -- and Martin took the chaos in stride, saying he'd never heard of the band but thought it "was great, very rock n roll."

Bottom line: More entertaining than Coldplay's Super Bowl halftime show.

Rihanna Meltdown at the Grammys

2/17/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0216-rihanna-grammys-TMZ-01Rihanna was screaming and hysterical before she bailed on the Grammys, but there are conflicting stories about what triggered her outburst. 

Sources connected with the show and several sources who were not connected but present at the show tell TMZ ... the singer was loudly expressing displeasure over her rehearsal. They say she was loud and upset and, as we first reported, bailed on the event.   

Rihanna's people say she had a medical issue ... bronchitis that was so bad she could not perform and that's why she left. Sources close to RiRi tell us she was too upset to stay and watch the show.

It's interesting ... Rihanna sang flawlessly two nights before the Grammys at a Lionel Richie charity event. Several sources say her voice was also great at the Grammys rehearsal.


Don Cheadle Pulling a Kanye at Grammys ... 'Classless'

2/17/2016 6:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Don Cheadle may have thought Kendrick Lamar was robbed at the Grammys, but he never would have jumped onstage Kanye style to jack Taylor Swift's moment ... because that would be classless.

Our photog got Don at LAX Tuesday and it seems the actor wants to move on from his Grammys tweet. Don thinks Taylor's just fine, but Kendrick was really the man of 2016.

His comment about attending the Oscars is interesting.


Von Miller Grammy Jacket Custom Made ... In 2 Days!

2/16/2016 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0216-von-miller-jackets-tmz-01Von Miller's crazy spotlight stealing Grammy jacket was a rush job -- put together with just 2 days notice -- with the designer flying in special material from across the country! 

We spoke with Von's personal stylist Chandra Ferrer of Elevee Clothing who tells us ... Von made a last-minute decision to attend the show -- and gave her a heads up on Thursday. 

Ferrer says she wanted Miller to make a statement on the red carpet -- and needed to go big -- so she mocked up the idea for the jacket and ran it by Von ... who LOVED it! 

Ferrer says she custom ordered a special French fabric called "French Metallic Opalescent Cloque" from NYC and had it rushed over Thursday night. 

We're told there are NO sequins or bedazzling -- the shimmer is from the special fabric. 

Ferrer says she added a special Super Bowl MVP patch inside as a special touch. 

In the end, the jacket was a hit -- and cost more than $1,300 to make -- but you can't put a price on swag (especially when you're expected to sign a HUGE contract in the very near future)!
