J Lo and Diddy Still Sweet for Each Other At AMA After-Party

11/23/2015 8:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-jlo-diddy-getty-01Jennifer Lopez and Diddy flashed back to the turn of the Millennium -- when he was Puff Daddy and she was not Jenny From the Block yet -- and partied after the AMAs as if they were still dating.

Clearly there are no hard feelings between the exes who looked like they had a blast at J Lo's after-party. They've come a long way since ending their relationship 16 years ago ... when Diddy got booked for a weapons violation after that NYC nightclub shooting.

Good to see they've put it all behind them. Jennifer's current guy, Casper Smart, was there too ... we got all 3 outside the party.

1123-ciara-dress-getty-02Ciara wore this to the AMA's in L.A. Sunday night ... and remains the toughest sack Russell Wilson has ever had to avoid.

You can do it Russ.

Charlie Puth Meghan Makeout Was Real and Spectacular

11/23/2015 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hours after he devoured Meghan Trainor's face on national TV ... Charlie Puth was still flying high and insisting the whole makeout sesh was 100% authentic.

If you missed it -- Meghan and Charlie had just finished singing "Marvin Gaye," and then started getting it on ... on the American Music Awards stage! Mouths were open, tongues were probing, and heads and asses were grabbed! It became one of the night's most talked about moments.

After the show, we got Charlie at Craig's and he was grinning from ear to ear -- looking a lot like a guy whose PDA turned into more than just kissing. Even though he tweeted "we are just friends" ... that's not the tune Charlie's singing in this clip.  

Kylie Jenner Spanks Gigi Hadid

11/23/2015 7:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Soooo ... this happened -- apparently after the American Music Awards in Kylie Jenner and/or Gigi Hadid's hotel room. 

Not that it matters. What's important is it DID happen, and there's video of it. 

American Music Awards Serious Seat Shufflin' After Tyga and Kylie Split

11/21/2015 12:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1121-ama-bieber-selena-tyga-gwen-blake-compositeProducers for The American Music Awards had a last minute scramble Friday night after Tyga and Kylie called it quits.

A source close to Sunday night's show tells TMZ the two were originally supposed to be sitting together in the crowd. However -- to avoid any serious drama -- we've learned producers now have Tyga sitting a few rows back from Jenner.

Our source also says Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton will be paired together and Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez will be front row ... but not beside each other. 

That's one messy game of musical chairs. 

Chris Rock Signs the Oscars Might Not Suck!

10/22/2015 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Rock lit up a beacon of hope for all who love the Academy Awards -- there's a fighting chance the show won't be TV's version of Ambien! 

Hours after the Oscars announced Rock would host next year, we got him heading into dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. But check out the video ... the exciting part is WHO he hung out with at the restaurant: Rosario Dawson, Matt Stone and Rick Rubin.

So, we're thinking (hoping, really) they were cooking up musical numbers that don't suck. Can't ya see the mashup? "99 Problems and Kyle's Mom's Chocolate Salty Balls Ain't One." 

We'll leave it to the pros, but watch and dream.

Andy Samberg Vs. Andy Sandberg Haters, Get it Straight!!!

9/22/2015 4:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0922-samberg-sandberg-tmz-twitter-01You'd think having the name Andy Samberg has its perks -- after all, the 'SNL' vet just hosted the Emmys -- but it's turned a namesake into a target of hate. 

Andy Sandberg, a Tony Award-winning producer, says his Twitter account has been flooded since Sunday night by haters who went on a mission to trash Samberg for his jokes about Donald Trump and Kim Davis

0922-subasset-andy-sandberg-twitter-02Turns out Samberg the comedian doesn't tweet from his own Twitter account ... he uses The Lonely Island account. The real problem here ... people don't know how to spell Samberg's last name.

It's been going on for years ... Sandberg says he gets Samberg's fan mail and pleas to audition for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." He's even gotten a residual check ... but he didn't open it.

Sandberg also says he barely watched the Emmys. Join the crowd.


Dave Grohl Foo Fighters Emmy Diss ... You Can't Cut Our Songs Short

9/21/2015 10:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0921-dave-grohl-emmys-tmz-01Now we know why Dave Grohl was so pissed about the Foo Fighters getting yanked from the Emmy Awards stage -- and it's all about size. Yes, it matters ... especially at award shows.

A rep for Grohl tells TMZ ... the band was all set to perform, and would have been the first ever rock band to play the Emmys. But the rep says, "FOX then refused to allow the band to play a full song from the Emmy-winning Sonic Highways."

According to our sources, the network wanted the band to play half of their winning song and then play part of their hit song "Learn to Fly" ... but the band wasn't having it. 

We're told the directive came straight from the network and not the television academy, who was on board with the band's plan to play what they wanted to.

FF won 2 Emmys for its HBO docuseries, but you can tell from his reaction last night ... Dave wanted to play, but obviously ... he wanted it his way.

We have a call in to FOX and the Emmys for their side of the story. 

Terrence Howard Bring On the Ex-Wife

9/21/2015 8:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0921-terrence-howard-miranda-APTerrence Howard was weirdly in an armlock at the Emmys with one of his divorced wives, and they were both wearing wedding bling.

Mira Pak was clutching Terrence's arm as they mugged for the camera.

Terrence and Mira were married on October 2013, but she filed for divorce this March. She gave birth to their son 2 months later. The divorce became final in July.

So it's surprising that not only are they together, they're wearing rings. 


Tracy Morgan Makes Triumphant Return at the Emmys

9/20/2015 8:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tracy Morgan made his first big public appearance since his accident in June 2014 ... presenting the award for Best Drama Series at Sunday night's Emmy Awards. 

Morgan spoke from the heart -- thanking his family and doctors -- and even cracked a few jokes as only he can.

The "30 Rock" star was in a coma for eight days following a car accident on June 7, 2014 when his vehicle was struck by a trailer operated by Walmart. 

Since his recovery, Morgan has settled his lawsuit against Walmart, got married, and will host "Saturday Night Live" next month.


Justin Bieber Sobbing Was Real Jitters Got Best of Me

8/31/2015 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber wasn't crying crocodile tears ... he really did get choked up and overcome with emotion when his VMA gig ended, and he's blaming his nerves for the sobfest.

Sources at the award show tell TMZ ... the Biebs was super nervous before his big "What Do You Mean?" performance ... because it's been five years since he last sang at the VMAs. 

Although Justin included a message about his "journey" -- with clear religious undertones -- we're told his break down was more about a sense of relief that he got through the comeback performance.

Justin recovered just fine from his butterflies though -- one video posted on Shots showed him onstage at Henry's singing his new hit again. No tears this time. 


Kanye West Hosting VMAs On The Table

8/31/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0831-kanye-vmas-TMZ-01Next year's VMAs could become a 10-hour ordeal, because we found out MTV is considering Kanye as its host.

VMA sources tell TMZ ... MTV was thrilled with Kanye's 12-minute diatribe, despite the fact he brutally trashed the network and awards shows in general. As it was put to us, Kanye hosting next year is "on the table." After all, who woulda thunk Miley? 

Here's how much MTV loved it ... we're told they only allotted him 2 minutes, but people in the control room were told to stand down, because it was crazy entertaining.   

We're told after Kanye left the stage, an MTV big wig followed him to his dressing room and gushed about the spectacle. 

Kanye West Over a Barrel ... On Presidential Domain Name

8/31/2015 10:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0831-kanye-president-VMAs-GETTY-01Kanye West may have just made a young man a fortune by announcing his possible run for President.

Tramall Ferguson registered "" back in April on a whim ... thinking maybe one day Yeezy would make it in the oval office.

The 24-year-old recent graduate said he registered a few other domains, including "" 

After Kanye's announcement at the MTV VMAs ... Tramal's phone is blowing up with huge offers to own the domain ... upwards of $80k.

0831-kanye-president-domain-SUB-INSTAGRAM-01Tramal says he's holding out ... waiting for Kanye to call.  He wouldn't say how much he'd charge, but he was clear ... Kanye's not getting it for free.

It'll take a lot more than a pair of those Yeezys.
