Jackie Evancho Won't Pull a Beyonce Singing Live at Inauguration!

1/19/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0118-Jackie-Evancho-instagramJackie Evancho's keeping it real at Donald Trump's inauguration ... with her voice.

Sources close to the singer tell TMZ ... Jackie will sing the national anthem LIVE when she steps up to the mic Friday.

You'll recall Beyonce got roasted 4 years ago for lip-syncing, a custom which has been followed by those who sang before her ... in no small part because it's hard to sing in frigid weather.

We're told Jackie has never lip-synced a performance and it's out of the question for her to break tradition for the most important performance of her life.

Jackie had a run-through with the Marine Corps Band Wednesday and her big rehearsal goes down Thursday.

She will prerecord the song, but it will only play if she gets sick and physically can't pull it off.

And, the song is notoriously a minefield for singers who forget the words, so the lyrics will appear on the teleprompters, but we're told that's not at Jackie's request. We're told she's done the song a hundred times, and has it nailed.

Packers Great James Jones Family Drama Isn't Distracting Aaron Rodgers

1/18/2017 1:11 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Fear not, Packers fans ... the Rodgers Family soap opera playing out in the media will have NO EFFECT on your quarterback ... so says Aaron's former longtime teammate and current pal James Jones.

The wide receiver tells TMZ Sports he just spoke with Aaron and the guy seems as laser-focused as ever. Plus, James says Rodgers has a ton of experience blocking out off-the-field drama.

Of course, the new storyline comes courtesy of Aaron's father who gave an interview to the NY Times ... discussing the family's fractured relationship with the QB.

Jones says Aaron is "in the zone" right now -- the last time he saw Aaron this focused, they won the Super Bowl. 

"He's in that Michael Jordan mode."

But is Aaron the best Packers QB in franchise history? Jones weighs in.

Cedric the Entertainer Steelers Will Win ... Unless Pats Cheat

1/18/2017 10:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

There's only one way the Patriots can beat the Steelers this weekend ... CHEAT ... that's according to Cedric the Entertainer who says the Steelers got it in the bag, unless Brady dips into his bag of tricks.

Cedric is a huge Steelers fan so when we got him out in L.A. we had to gauge how confident he is going into this weekend's AFC Championship game.

Answer? VERY CONFIDENT ... in a win, while he was seemingly less confident that the Steelers wouldn't be up to their old shenanigans (deflating balls, taping practices, you know the gags).

He also talked to us about Antonio Brown's little locker room mishap, telling our camera guy he has full confidence Coach Mike Tomlin will get Brown in line.

Les Moonves Best Super Bowl Matchup (For TV Ratings) Is ...

1/18/2017 8:42 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Two cities are gonna be real upset ... 'cause TV super boss Les Moonves -- the guy who runs CBS -- is telling TMZ Sports which two teams are the best Super Bowl matchup for TV ratings.

We got Moonves in L.A. with wife Julie Chen when we asked him which two teams mean the biggest bucks for the network broadcasting the game this year (it's FOX).

It's tough ... GB has a red-hot Aaron Rodgers, ATL has the best offense in the league, New England has this pretty boy QB people like ... and the Steelers give you unprecedented locker room access.

Don't be mad ... Les is just keepin' it real.

D.L. Hughley MLK III Betrayed John Lewis With Trump Meeting

1/18/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

D.L. Hughley isn't trying to hide his anger at MLK Jr.'s son for betraying Civil Rights leader Rep. John Lewis during his beef with Donald Trump ... in D.L.'s eyes, anyway.

D.L. definitely got some stuff off his chest when we asked about Martin Luther King III's meeting with the Prez-elect. He flat-out rips him for not calling out Trump for his Twitter rant against Rep. Lewis ... who walked shoulder to shoulder with MLK Jr. in the '60s.

As for why MLK III really had the meeting -- D.L. offers a mercenary theory.

The outrage is real.

Bob Arum Floyd, Conor And Dana Are Full of It ... Fight Talk Is BS

1/17/2017 12:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bob Arum is calling major BS on Floyd Mayweather, Dana White, and Conor McGregor ... saying all this talk about boxing vs MMA superfight is "absolute nonsense."

We got Arum out at Craig's in L.A. and asked him if all the back and forth between Floyd and Dana was going to end up in an actual fight ... or if it's just sound and fury signifying nothing.

Arum's the guy to ask -- he's made some of the biggest fights in boxing history -- and he couldn't have been more concrete about this one ... which he says ain't ever gonna happen.

We love you, Bob ... but here's one time we really hope you're wrong as hell.

Breaking News

Bill Belichick says he isn't on "SnapFace" or "InstaChat" ... and therefore doesn't give a crap about the cyber-insults the Steelers spewed on social media.

The Patriots head coach appeared on WEEI in Boston and was asked to respond to Mike Tomlin calling his team "a-holes" during a locker room speech that was live streamed by Antonio Brown. 

Bill's response is pure Belichick ... short, sweet and right to the point.

EXCLUSIVE

0116-justin-bieber-selena-gomez-TMZ-02Justin Bieber can spot an opportunist from a mile away ... at least now he can, and the opportunist is Selena Gomez.

Our Bieber sources tell us ... the singer says he's been there, and believes Selena's using The Weeknd for promotion. Bieber's intel -- and ours -- is that Selena and The Weeknd are working on music together.

We're told Justin feels this is all cookie-cutter stuff ... she did it with him, Nick JonasZedd and now with good ol' Abel. When Selena wants to push new music, it seems she dates stars with whom she wants to collab.

Long story short ... we're told Justin's rolling his eyes at the Selena/Weeknd love story. Can you tell

Selena Gomez found a new way to tell paps to talk to the hand ... but along the way, she pulled a Bieber and almost went off course.

Paps got Selena Sunday night leaving Terroni in L.A., and she really wasn't having it with their questions about backstabbing Bella Hadid by swooping in on The Weeknd

She also looked a lot like her own ex trying to navigate to the car ... thank God for those handlers.

Bella Hadid Backstabbed and Betrayed by Selena

1/14/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0113-selena-gomez-the-weeknd-bella-hadid-tmzBella Hadid believes Selena Gomez did her dirty by dating The Weeknd behind her back.

Sources close to Bella tell TMZ she feels betrayed because her ex and Selena hooked up almost immediately after Bella and Weeknd ended their relationship.

Here's where it gets interesting. We're told it was actually Bella who pulled the plug 2 months ago, because the bi-coastal relationship was just too difficult. Nevertheless, the breakup hurt.

Also interesting ... a Selena source says the thing between Selena and Bella's ex is 2 months old. They even spent the holidays together.

Bella is especially incensed because she and sister Gigi helped Selena when she was on the skids dealing with numerous emotional and other issues.

And there's more. Despite the 2-month relationship, Selena never uttered a peep about it to Gigi, who's her best friend. Gigi and Bella found out about it when they saw the pics on TMZ. And that's when Bella unfollowed Selena on Instagram.

As one Bella source put it, "Giving Bella and Gigi a heads up would have been the respectful and honorable thing to do ... but I guess that's just Hollywood."
