Famous Kids Too Busy

6/15/2014 2:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0615-bruce-jenner-splash-01Bruce Jenner got the gift of peace and quiet for Father's Day -- whether he wanted it or not -- because his celeb spawn are busy making money.

Bruce was flying solo when he hit up Starbucks in Malibu Sunday morning looking bored -- or maybe just well rested.

Instead of doing brunch with dad ... Kendall and Kylie Jenner are in Toronto to host the Much Music Awards tonight.

And Brody Jenner is hosting a pool party in Atlantic City.

Don't feel too bad for Bruce ... Kendall posted a pic this week saying the family celebrated Father's Day early with a few rounds of golf -- and don't forget, he has 3 other biological kids AND the K sisters to bug hang with today.

Chris Brown

Easter Feast Behind Bars

EXCLUSIVE

0418-chris-brown-easter-dinner-01Chris Brown is locked up for Easter -- but he'll still get to enjoy a delicious holiday meal ... courtesy of the Virginia justice system.

TMZ spoke with the Northern Neck Regional Jail -- where Chris is being held until his Washington D.C. assault trial begins on Monday -- and it sounds like he'll be having a mostly traditional holiday:

--  Turkey Ham (no pork out of respect for Islamic inmates)
--  Yams
--  Cabbage
--  Bread Pudding
--  Cookies

We're told bible study and ministers will be available for anyone who wants that kinda thing. Unclear if Chris will partake -- but a little prayer couldn't hurt before the trial.

Just sayin'.

The Pope & Jared Leto

Palm Sunday Selfies

0414-pope-jared-AP-PCNOne talks about Jesus, the other just looks like him ... but on Palm Sunday, Pope Francis and Jared Leto were joined together through the incredible power of the selfie.

Pope Francis was in St. Peter's Square -- a massive plaza located directly in front of St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City -- greeting fans following a service for more than 100,000 people. 

Meanwhile in Jerusalem at Coachella, Leto posed for photos with his many followers during the weekend festival.

All these photos are missing is a donkey and some branches.

Michelle Obama

Shuts Down Aspen Airport

Cool Your Jets, Richie Rich

2/15/2014 8:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0215-michelle-obama-01Michelle Obama and the extremely rich collided in the air Friday ... when the Aspen Airport apparently shut down for an hour to facilitate a fun-filled ski weekend for Michelle and her kids.

The First Lady flew in late yesterday to the ridiculously in-your-face show of wealth on the tarmac.  According to the New York Post, the airport was shut down for security reasons and some private jet setters were just PISSED.

It's one of the most congested weekends of the year at the Aspen Airport ... several hundred jets descend on the ski city for the long President's Day weekend.

And speaking of presidents ... the current one was not there.  He went to Cali to deal with the drought.

It's kinda funny if some of the whiners are people who support Obama.  Like the old saying goes, "Liberalism ends where inconvenience begins."
