When I Was High

5/21/2015 1:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Listen up Oasis fans -- today is gonna be the day Noel Gallagher throws it back to you ... about how he came up with all those lyrics that have been stuck in your head for years.

The mellower Gallagher brother flew into LA for a show Wednesday, when our photog/Oasis fanboy tried to get answers to every burning Oasis question -- and kinda succeeds.

It's all here in this clip ... "Wonderwall," being bigger than God and the Beatles ... and writing while he was getting high (intentional “Champagne Supernova” plug).

Also covered ... a possible reunion with Liam!!  But we all know the answer to that one.

Flavor Flav

Arrested in the

Mother of All Traffic Stops

EXCLUSIVE

Flavor Flav was arrested early Thursday morning in Las Vegas by highway patrol and got nailed for so many alleged crimes ... it might be easier to tell you what cops didn't pin on him.

Only sorta kidding, but here's what they booked him on:

-- DUI
-- Possession of marijuana
-- Open container
-- Speeding
-- Bogus registration
-- Driving with a suspended license

According to Nevada Highway Patrol, this all began when cops spotted Flav at 12:30 AM 2005 black BMW and going 73mph in a 45mph zone.

Flav was busted for speeding last year in NY on the way to his mother's funeral. When cops ran his license, they found it was suspended 16 times.

He swore to a judge he fixed the problem, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

EXCLUSIVE

David Letterman had scores of big celebrities at his finale after-party, but the most entertaining guys in the building were 2 Marines who enjoyed a lot of free vodka on Dave.

The 2 guys are in NYC for Fleet Week, and their first night got awesome when they bumped into Steve Martin's wife, who invited them into the shindig.

They told us about all the famous people they met, but it sounds like their new best friend is the bartender.

Happy Memorial Day!!! It's gonna be an awesome Fleet Week.

1:00 PM PST -- Young Buck tells TMZ, "It's nobody's fault but my own."  

update_grey_gray_bar

Young Buck couldn’t resist smoking weed with Snoop Dogg while on probation ... and now the G-Unit rapper is facing more jail time for faking a mandatory drug test. 

Buck literally got busted with his pants down according to a probation officer -- who says he saw YB using a tube to shoot a "yellow substance" into his drug testing cup last week. 

According to docs ... he first tried to use the ol’ secondhand smoke excuse, but ultimately caved and admitted he'd gotten high with Snoop. Now, a judge will decide whether Buck has to do jail time for the violation. 

Shame ... Buck had been on a winning streak, pissing clean for his previous 21 mandatory tests since November 2013.

Bottom line? Snoop’s weed will mess you up. In multiple ways.

Drunk ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant

My Rape Line Was Entertaining

... Refuses to Apologize

5/20/2015 4:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The 'Bachelorette' contestant who's getting blasted for dropping a rape comment on a cast member isn't backing down -- and says his controversial line saved the whole show. 

If you missed it ... Ryan McDill -- a self-proclaimed amateur actor and comedian -- was booted during the first episode after ripping off his shirt and telling another guy on the show, "Why am I not raping you right now?" That line combined with McDill's apparent boozing got him 86'd.

McDill admits he was drinking a lot, but adds ... "I wasn’t blacked out and knew exactly what I was doing.” He also says the rape line wasn't a joke -- as critics have said -- and claims he was really trying to say, I'll destroy you.

He tells us, "People need to get off their high horse. It was awesome and entertaining.”

As for the heavy drinking and groping Kaitlyn's ass -- McDill claims he felt pressure to play it up for the cameras -- and claims all the guys on the show do it too. However, he does NOT say producers told him to act like a tool.

And McDill offered one last shot -- he actually thinks producers should thank him because he was “the only reason the first episode was the s**t.”

Bill Murray

So Drunk

I Fell For MSNBC!!!

5/20/2015 6:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Forget being too drunk to stand, Tuesday night Bill Murray was too drunk to sit!

Murray appeared on MSNBC’s "The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell" ... which was not his first stop of the night.

The "Groundhog Day" star did "The Late Show with David Letterman," where he appeared to swig vodka right from the bottle. Bill then went to dinner, where he enjoyed a few glasses of wine with his meal.

Cut to his next stop at MSNBC ... where he clumsily sat on a chair and then crashed to the floor.

Any issues regarding alcohol consumption are clearly resolved after the break when Bill slurs his way through the interview.

Diamond Dallas Page

Don't Give Up On Scott Hall

'Recovery Is a Process'

5/19/2015 10:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-dallas-scott-hall-getty-01Wrestling legend Diamond Dallas Page says he knows his friend Scott Hall has "stumbled" in his ongoing battle with substance abuse ... but says he still has Hall's back -- no matter what. 

Page has essentially been a sober mentor for both Hall and Jake "The Snake" Roberts -- who both had serious issues with alcohol and drugs after becoming world famous wrestling stars. 

Now, with Hall being escorted out of a wrestling event in NJ this weekend for allegedly showing up drunk, Page says he wants Hall to know he can count on him for support.  

"Scott is going through a life process. He's stumbled along the way, but he is doing well over all. I've got his back."

Page adds, "Even Jake 'The Snake' has fallen a few times, but he is now one year sober and doing great."

DDP says he plans to speak with Hall soon ... and hopes he can help get Hall back on the sober path, asap. 

WWE Legend Scott Hall

BOOTED FROM WRESTLING EVENT

... Allegedly Hammered, Again

5/18/2015 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall was physically escorted out of a wrestling event in NJ this weekend ... after promoters say the recovering substance abuser was way too hammered to do his job. 

Hall has battled drug and alcohol issues for years ... but had teamed up with some other wrestling legends in recent years in a public effort to clean himself up. 

Which is why the people at the Skate and Surf Music Festival in Asbury Park, NJ were so disappointed Saturday when Hall appeared to be wasted ... hours before he was supposed to host a meet and greet with fans. 

According to our sources, Hall was given multiple chances to sober up ... but never did. Organizers told Hall to leave ... but he refused, demanding to be paid. 

Eventually, security stepped in and escorted Hall off the property.  

The event promoter, Ricky Otazu, tells TMZ Sports, "The event was too well run for us to make a fool of ourselves by allowing him to appear. We will no longer be associated with him until he gets his life in order."

Hall was arrested in 2012 for allegedly choking his girlfriend during a drunken rage and was sentenced to 10 days behind bars for a 2010 DUI arrest

We made several efforts to reach Hall for comment -- and even called his close friends and family members -- but so far, no word from the wrestling star.

Robin Thicke

Our Dog Ate Weed

Now It's One Sick Puppy

EXCLUSIVE

0516_robin_thicke_pot_dogRobin Thicke and his 20-year-old girlfriend aren't gonna win any SPCA awards anytime soon, because they accidentally turned their dog into a pothead.

April Love Geary gushed about Bincy last month when she and Robin plunked down $350 for the terrier mix.  

But things went south quickly.  April says a day after they took the pooch home it somehow got into their stash and got sick.  Bincy went to the vet, but apparently she still had a taste for the green stuff.

Three days after returning home, Bincy was back at the animal doc, for the same problem.  This time April insisted it was more of a contact high, but when friends started ragging on her she tweeted, "IT'S NOT ME!!! Some falls on the ground or she sits by him smoking and just inhales it hahaha."

Best we can see, Bincy's back home.  Keep those Funyons away from her, Robin ... they're dangerous.

 April tells us in one of the trips to the vet, although they thought the dog got into the pot the stool sample revealed it was garlic.  It's unclear how the dog got into garlic.

I Forgive My Cheating Teammate

Even Though They Took My Medal

Would YOU forgive a teammate who CHEATED and costed you an Olympic medal??? 

Well, U.S. sprinter Justin Gatlin says he's ready to do just that when it comes to Tyson Gay -- who admitted he doped during the 2012 Olympics ... which resulted in the IOC stripping them over their silver medals in the 4x100. 

Gay has admitted to taking banned substances -- but says it wasn't intentional. "I basically put my trust in someone and I was let down."

Now, with the IOC taking the medals back, Gatlin tells TMZ Sports he won't fight the decision. 

"The rules are the rules ... and if the committee says we have to return it -- I’m going to follow the rules. I honestly don’t mind giving it back if it wasn't won fairly."

As for his feelings about Gay, Gatlin says ... "He has apologized for his actions and asked for public forgiveness. So now it’s time to move on from that."

Gatlin says he now has his eyes focused on another prize -- GOLD at the 2016 Games. 

"I know we have another chance coming up in Rio – and we just started off the season beating the Jamaicans at the world championships."

Good luck!

The road to recovery takes time … so Kyle Richards is not ready to give up on elder sister Kim.

TMZ has learned that the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ siblings have been taking steps to repair their relationship since their epic, finger-pointing fight on the season 5 reunion show.

Step 1: Kyle visited Kim when she was in rehab.

Step 2: Kyle RSVP'd “yes” to niece Brooke Brinson’s destination wedding next weekend, and for her part Kim backed down from her original position ... making Kyle persona non grata.

We’re told that Kyle wants desperately to preserve the family, and not going to her niece's wedding would be unthinkable.

Alcohol is on the menu, but they’re not worried about Kim relapsing because her drinking is only a problem when she's alone.

Two down ... ten steps to go ...
