2/21/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

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
EXCLUSIVE

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
EXCLUSIVE

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)!

Beyonce & Bruno Mars And the Grammy Goes to ... Nostradamus??

2/16/2016 11:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Beyonce and Bruno Mars are in the Psychic Friends Network ... or Bruno accidentally created a huge conspiracy with the final Grammy win of the night.

Verrrrry interesting if you missed it -- Bey was onstage to present Record of the Year, but before she even announced the winner ... Bruno shouted, "Let's do it Beyonce!"

And what do ya know -- 1 second later she announced Bruno and Mark Ronson were the winners for "Uptown Funk."

Conspiracy theorists are buzzing: Was Bruno tipped off? Just coincidence that he and Beyonce performed together last week at the Super Bowl ... which, like the Grammys, aired on CBS?

Or did Bruno just get lucky? Imagine how embarrassing if he'd lost.

This is one for the ages ... Paul McCartney turned away at a Grammy after-party ... not once, BUT TWICE.

Paul, Beck, and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins went to Argyle in Hollywood Monday night to hobnob at the bash hosted by Tyga.  

Security was not impressed and told them they were not welcome. You hear Paul say, "How VIP do we gotta get? We need another hit."

After a second failed attempt, the trio bails and they make their way to Hyde for the Republic Records party. They had better luck there.

Taylor Swift Sheds a Tear ... Pisses on Kanye

2/15/2016 8:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Swift wiped a tear away after apparently blowing a note in the Grammys show opener, "Out of the Woods."

Once seated the cameras caught Taylor complaining to Selena Gomez, "I missed that note."  

She changed gears later in the show when she clearly dissed Kanye West, whose lyric "I made that bitch famous" pissed her off.  She told the crowd "People will take credit for your success ... Don't let them knock you down."

Adele Hello ... Where'd My Audio Go?

2/15/2016 7:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Adele's Grammy performance Monday night should have been the highlight of the show ... but the sound engineer had different ideas.

The singer took the stage towards the end of the night to perform "All I Ask," but her mic cut out early in the song and the audio took a little bit before finally recovering.

You had one job, sound guy ... 

BTW -- the whole song seemed a little ... off.

Blake Shelton Poor Luke Bryan He's Grammy Challenged!!!

2/14/2016 7:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Blake Shelton was in form as rare as the steak he ate at Mastro's in Bev Hills Saturday, joking that he'd like to sit next to Luke Bryan at the Grammys, but poor Luke is never in the running.

Blake's joking about his pal, who's top of the heap in country for sure, but there's truth in what he says. 

On the other hand, Luke's had 14 #1 hits and sold 27 million singles worldwide. Better than a Grammy? You betcha!

Abby Lee Miller I Made These 'Dance' Girls Cool ... Unlike Their Real Mothers

2/12/2016 11:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Thank God for Abby Lee Miller ... said Abby Lee Miller when discussing the fame and success of some of her "Dance Moms" students.

No doubt Abby's got some bragging rights ... we were at her Santa Monica studio when some of her girls, including Maddie Ziegler, were going through a hip-hop routine.

Maddie just won the Seriously Popular trophy at the People's Choice Awards, so you'll excuse Abby for crowing about how she raised her girls. As she put it, "Lord knows, if it would've been up to their mothers."

Okay, maybe you won't excuse her.
