Kanye West I Paid the Extras at My Show ... That Kid's Full of It

2/12/2016 12:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021216-kanye-west-tmz-02Kanye West's hired hands at his Yeezy Season 3 debut were all fed, paid and dressed for the gig -- and his camp is firing back at the extra who claims otherwise.

The accuser, who goes by "kurents" on IG, went on a rant ... claiming he didn't get a dime for his work as an extra, and that Yeezy dressed everybody in hand-me-downs.

However, a rep for Kanye tells us extras got a daily rate and received a meal ticket for lunch. While the hours were long for the gig, we're told the majority of the crew was thrilled to be in the show. 

A source close to the production tells TMZ all models were dressed in Yeezy Season 3 gear, but because of the large number of participants ... some extras were in vintage clothing that had been dyed for the production. We're told they were paid $10/hr.

Our source says everyone involved in the show had to sign a very strict NDA, so it's a little fishy the "kurents" guy is so chatty.

Rihanna Dressing For A Galaxy Far, Far Away

2/12/2016 8:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0212-rihanna-ag-02Rihanna dropped a big clue she's a hardcore 'Star Wars' fan just like everybody else Thursday during her night out on the NYC town.

RiRi dined at one of her favorite places ...  Da Silvano in the Village.

The skirt's a knockoff  of the old movie poster for 'The Phantom Menace' from the prequel trilogy ... so she clearly wasn't dressing to impress ... the original three or 'Force Awakens' is the proper attire for true aficionados.

2/12/2016 7:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West drew a crazy number of celebs Thursday to his Madison Square Garden show ... and they ran the gamut.

Check out the video ... Rosie O'Donnell, Anna Wintour, Gigi and Bella Hadid, A$AP Rocky, Jennifer Hudson, MC Hammer, Wale, Young Thug and model Shaun Ross.  

Of course, Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Tyga were front and center supporting Kanye.

Kanye to Lamar Let Me Show You to Your Seat

2/11/2016 2:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lamar Odom had a high-priced usher escort him to his front and center seat Thursday at Madison Square Garden -- that would be the headliner, Kanye West.

As we reported Lamar flew from L.A. Wednesday night to attend the unveiling of Kanye's new album and fashion line.

The Kardashians came into the arena -- all wearing white -- under a spotlight, but the big moment was reserved for Lamar.

Kanye walked Lamar to his seat and then took the stage.

The Kardashian clan was out in full as well ... sitting right near the front with some of their super famous friends.

As for Lamar -- he had a slight limp but walked the stairs just fine.

As far as the lyrics ... Kanye had some pretty interesting things to say worked into his songs ... mentioning Taylor Swift, Blac Chyna, Rob Kardashian and Ray J.

For Ray J, Yeezy rapped, "I bet me and Ray J woulda been friends, if we hadn't loved the same bitch. Ya, he might have hit it first. Only problem is, I'm rich."

When it came to Blac Chyna and Rob, one song said, "Blac Chyna f***ing Rob, helping him with the weight. Wish my trainer would tell me what I overate."

And finally, for Taylor, "I feel like me and Taylor might have had sex, I made that bitch famous."

The Kardashian sisters certainly seemed to enjoy his song with Rihanna.

Not far from the K Krew ... Gigi and Bella Hadid, Lil Kim, and fashion maven Anna Wintour watched. As usual, hard to get a read off Anna in those shades.

EXCLUSIVE

0210-kanye-west-tmz-yeezy-logo-02Kanye West is adamant ... anyone who figured out what T.L.O.P. stands for will get free tickets and more, but if they talk about it ... they're S.O.L.

'Ye promised a pair of Yeezys and tickets to his season 3 collection premiere for anyone who guessed the full album name. 33 people guessed correctly, and got an email from Kanye's creative director, which made it very clear ... spill the beans and you get nothing.

0210-sub-kanye-west-invite-4The email threatens, "keep this correspondence 100% confidential - any violation of this will void your contest win."

Pamela Anderson Meet the New Baewatch

2/11/2016 8:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0211-pam-anderson-even-GETTY-01Pamela Anderson officially passed the sex symbol torch to sons Brandon Lee and Dylan Lee at the Saint Laurent fashion show in Hollywood Wednesday night.

Pam and Tommy Lee's boys were solidly in the spotlight during the show at the Palladium ... mainly because 18-year-old Dylan (on the right) recently made his modeling debut in a campaign for Saint Laurent.

By the way, Pam's wearing heels and both of the boys are still towering over her. They grow up so fast.

And hot ... with the right genes.

Dakota & Elle Fanning Serious Redrum Vibes

2/11/2016 7:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0211-elle-fanning-dakota-fanning-GETTY-01Dakota and Elle Fanning looked like they were auditioning for a role in a remake of Stephen King's "The Shining" at Wednesday night's Saint Laurent fashion show in Hollywood. 

It's a good pic, if only because they're rarely photographed together.

The sisters are separated by 4 years  -- Dakota's 21 and Elle's 17 -- but who can tell under all that eyeliner?

Come to think about it ... a remake of "The Shining" would be totally awesome.

Kanye West Fresh for Less ... The New Yeezy Motto

2/9/2016 9:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West is all over the place on picking a name for his new album, but he's nailed down his future plans for his fashion biz ... and it's awesome for you.

We got Kanye in NYC where he's getting ready for his album launch concert at Madison Square Garden. He just announced the NEW initials of the record -- T.L.O.P. -- the latest change from "Waves" and "Swish" and "So Help Me God." It's a process, apparently.

But when it comes to his fashion line, Yeezy told us ... it's going down. 

Also in this clip -- A$AP Rocky. We smell a MSG cameo coming.

John Lennon All You Need is Locks ... for at least $12,000!

Exclusive Details

0208-john-lennon-hair-GETTY-HERITAGE-AUCTIONS-01Several locks of John Lennon's hair are on the auction block, and even though it's already going for five figures ... it's a steal as Lennon memorabilia goes.

Heritage Auction out of Dallas is hawking a 4-inch chunk of John's hair -- a hairdresser cut it off before his role in a 1967 movie called, "How I Won The War" -- and the current bid is at $12k.

Past Lennon items have gone for way more than that: his '65 Rolls Royce Phantom V sold for $2.23 MILLION, and Lennon's handwritten lyrics to "All You Need is Love" fetched $1.25 million.

So chances are the price on Lennon's locks will go through the roof too. Get your bids in now!

0204_Mike-Piazza-attends-Haute-Living-Celebrates_gettyMike Piazza's timepiece game just got stronger ... courtesy of a SWEET GIFT worth $25k from the CEO of a luxury watchmaker ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The gift giving went down in Miami at a party thrown by Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin and luxury lifestyle magazine Haute Living ... and the soon-to-be Hall of Famer was in attendance.

Piazza -- who's a friend of U.N.'s CEO -- was given a Ulysse Nardin Midnight Express Special Edition watch -- 1 of only 100 in existence -- to celebrate his election into Cooperstown.

It's good to be one of the greatest baseball players of all time.

Serena Williams Shaking Off Loss ... And Nearly Her Top

2/4/2016 7:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0204-serena-williams-akm-01Even when Serena Williams loses on the court, her body still dominates off it -- exhibit A was spilling out of her shirt Wednesday night in L.A. 

Serena hit up celeb hotspot The Nice Guy in a severely buttoned-down shirt ... showing off most of her black bra and a ton of cleavage. 

While she might still be stinging from that Australian Open loss last weekend, this should help Serena's fans recover.

Somewhere, Susan Sarandon is applauding.

The 18-year-old model just booked a new gig with Saint Laurent ... where he shows off his washboard abs and even plays a little guitar. 

Some kids just get dealt a winning hand.

Cindy Crawford I'm Kinda Flaky On Retirement

2/1/2016 4:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0201-cindy-crawford-playful-INSTAGRAM-01It's a good thing Cindy Crawford looks hot in sandals (and everything else) -- cause the chick is flip flopping big time on quitting the modeling game.  

Cindy says she tells her kids every year that she's retiring and it's become a "running joke in our family" -- but adds, she's "not making any final statements."

As we told you ... Cindy declared she would not have her pic taken as a model anymore after her 50th birthday (later this month) while talking to United Airlines' Rhapsody magazine.

Sounds pretty final, but we're guessing her phone's been ringing off the hook since that came out -- in her IG post she says, "never say never."

Cher couldn't have said it better.
