Drake has pulled himself out of tomorrow's big Grammy Nominations Concert in L.A., TMZ has learned ... and it's all because the guy claims he's got a last minute "scheduling conflict."
The show had been promoting the rapper as one of their big acts since October ... but a rep for Drake tells TMZ something came up, and now he won't be able to attend.
"Unfortunately, due to scheduling complications, Drake will no longer be performing ... [he's] currently in the middle of his nationwide 'Would You Like A Tour?' and sincerely apologizes to his fans that he can’t be there."
According Drake's website, he's not scheduled to perform anywhere on Dec. 6th ... though he does have a show the following day in Missouri.
So, why the sudden conflict? We asked the rep ... but didn't get an explanation.
Don't fear, Grammy fans ... Lorde, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have all been added to the lineup within the last 24 hours.
Gaga DOMINATED Me at the AMAs
11/26/2013 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
R. Kelly got straight up out-crazied by Lady Gaga at the AMAs Sunday night -- and after the show, he was man (and drunk) enough to admit it to TMZ.
The R&B legend was admittedly sauced before he even got to the Bootsy Bellows after-party ... and when we asked for his reaction to Gaga arriving to the show on a giant horse puppet ... all he could say was "why the f*ck didn't I think of that!?!"
It's pretty funny.
Kelly also told us he thinks Gaga is one of the GREAT performers of our time ... but where does she stack up compared to him??? Watch the clip -- he's boozy ... but he's honest.

11/22/2013 3:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
There may be a little nip in the air at the American Music Awards Sunday ... TMZ has learned Kendall Jenner will be presenting.
The gig comes on the heels of the 18-year-old's very adult Instagram photo.
We're told she'll be presenting Best Pop Rock album, and get this -- the nominees are Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift and One Direction. As you know, Kendall was out with Harry Styles this week -- so advantage 1D.
This is Kendall's first time making a big appearance without the Kardashian brood.
We're sure she'll bust out big.

We're told Joe and Nick felt bad about bailing, whereas Kevin said, screw it.
If you want to brave the dangers of Mexico to see the last of the Jonas' ... book your tickets now.
Lights Up Joint On-Stage ...
Because She Can
11/11/2013 12:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Miley Cyrus traded twerking for toking at the EMAs -- the European version of MTV's VMAs -- puffing a fat joint on live TV Sunday night.
Cyrus performed twice during the show without sparking any controversy -- but while accepting the award for Best Video she shocked everyone by lighting up.
The awards were in Amsterdam, so she probably won't get in trouble, and Miley took full advantage ... while wearing a onesie and fur coat.
Guess marijuana isn't the only thing they're lax about over there.
When the EMAs aired in the U.S. ... Miley's joint smoking was edited out.

'House of Cards' Star
'Nobody Cares' About the Emmys
9/23/2013 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Corey Stoll from "House of Cards" deserves a trophy for saying what most of Hollywood probably thinks, but is too afraid to say -- Emmys are nothing more than giant paper weights.
Corey was brutally honest -- outside an Emmy party last night -- when we asked if he was pissed he didn't even get a nomination for his role as coke and hooker loving Congressman Peter Russo.
His reply ... "Oh, no. Nobody cares about that stuff."
So, if Corey's telling the truth about the Emmys -- gotta respect his honesty.
Still, we gotta ask ...

Klugman's Son Be Damned
9/23/2013 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
ane Lynch just delivered a powerful tribute at the Emmys for her "Glee" costar Cory Monteith ... that definitely won't make Jack Klugman's son feel any better.
Jane pulled no punches during the speech ... reminding the audience Cory "wasn't perfect" -- and referred to his death as a reminder of the dangers of addiction.
Klugman's death was acknowledged later in the show during a montage.
Matt, Give Me a Hand with
My Giant ...

And the Emmy for Outstanding Use of Sexual Innuendo goes to ... Michael Douglas ... who whipped out a penis joke, and a gay sex reference during his acceptance speech.
Douglas won the trophy for his role as Liberace in "Behind the Candelabra" ... which co-starred Matt Damon as Lib's lover, Scott Thorson.
As he held up the Emmy statue, Douglas motioned to Matt, and said ... "You really deserve half of this. So, do you want the bottom or the top?"
The crowd loved it. Check the clip for Michael's meaty double entendre ... about his penis size.
Also interesting: Michael's still wearing his wedding ring, and even thanked Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Over Klugman Diss
9/22/2013 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jane Lynch was shockingly candid today when we asked her how she felt about her "Glee" co-star Cory Monteith getting a special tribute while TV icon Jack Klugman is getting the bum's rush.
Jane was locked and loaded when we approached her ... and had clearly thought it through before she left home for Kings Road Cafe.
It seems Jane fully understands why Jack Klugman's son is so pissed.
