Mariah Carey

Flaunts Truckload of Hits & Her Ass ...

For Giant Vegas Welcome

4/28/2015 7:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mariah Carey was welcomed Monday to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas with a quiet, understated gathering of a few close friends ... jkjk ... it was a giant, over-the-top spectacle!

Carey begins her residency at The Colosseum next week, and arrived Monday in a pink convertible, white fur stole, and nude bodysuit -- Mimi wasn't hiding a thing. In fact, she showed off all her #1s with a parade of 18 trucks -- one for each hit song.

Mariah spoke a little -- maybe she's saving her voice -- but mostly she let her anti-Nick Cannon anthem "Infinity" do the talking during her queen-like entrance.

If her Vegas shows are this well-produced, Mariah will be worth the price of admission.

Back On Thong Patrol ...

Bigfoots Mini Sisqo

EXCLUSIVE

It must have looked like someone left Sisqo in the dryer too long -- until the 90s R&B star made a surprise appearance to do a duet with his little doppelgänger at Beacher's Madhouse.

At first, just Mini Sisqo got the crowd jumpin' Saturday night in Las Vegas with "Thong Song" -- and then out of nowhere the real deal singer jumped on stage and took over mic duties. The little guy managed to hold his own though ... while rocking a throwback headband. #respect

Turns out Mini Sisqo is multi-talented ... he also does a mean Mini Kanye.

Jarret Stoll

Partying with Kings Teammates

... During Vegas Drug Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

0420_jarrett_stoll_la_gettyJarret Stoll had been raging in Vegas with several of his L.A. Kings teammates in the hours before the NHL star was busted for trying to bring a BUNCH of cocaine and molly to a pool party ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Multiple sources confirm ... the Vegas vacation was essentially an unofficial end-of-the-season celebration to unwind and party as a team.

As far as how many Kings were part of the festivities -- sources tell us there were more than a dozen people from the organization on hand ... many of whom continued to party in Vegas throughout the weekend even AFTER Stoll was arrested. 

We know Drew Doughty and Martin Jones were part of the Vegas crew -- but they were NOT arrested or accused of any wrongdoing whatsoever. In fact, the only person who got into any trouble was Stoll

We reached out to the players and the Kings organization -- but no one wanted to comment on this specific story.

Frowny Faced Scott Disick

Front and Center for BD Bash

4/19/2015 8:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0419-kourtney-kardashian-birthday-1OAK-GETTY-01Kourtney Kardashian celebrated her 36 birthday Saturday night in Vegas with boyfriend Scott Disick ... and he looks less than enthused.

The bash was thrown at 1OAK.  There was a pretty big crowd, sans all the other Kardashians.  Kim's at home in L.A., Kylie's at Coachella with Tyga and Kendall.

0419-kendal-kylie-kardashian-INSTAGRAM-01Khloe was busy Saturday night throwing a shindig for her new group messaging app called Regroupd.

0419-khloe-kardashian-INSTAGRAM-01There was a buzz that Rob Kardashian might have gone to Coachella as well, but there's no evidence of it.

Britney Spears

Adios Elton ...

I'm Taking Back My Vegas Crib

EXCLUSIVE

Britney Spears Las Vegas HomeThe sheets were still warm when Britney Spears slipped into her Las Vegas pad -- because she didn't even wait 24 hours for Elton John to move out before moving back into the uber swank suite.

Sources close to the singers tell TMZ ... Brit is going to be living it up in the 8,000 sq. ft. paradise known as the Palazzo Suite at Rio while she's in Vegas. Elton lived there during his most recent Caesars Palace stint ... but we're told he moved out Tuesday night, and Brit was in by Wednesday morning.

The two have been trading off at the suite for some time now and Elton lived there while Brit was on her most recent hiatus. Britney has called the pad home for the last 13 months.

The THREE floor suite comes with 24-hour butler service, 2 jacuzzis, an elevator, and furniture on loan from 17 museums around the world. Sir Elton has standards.

There's even a grand piano ... which will probably just collect dust now.

Britney Spears

Drops F-Bomb

on Rude Fan

4/16/2015 6:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

update_graphic_red_bar10:45 AM PT -- It now sounds like the guy who said "fat bitch" is so far back there's no way Britney could have heard him. So the question ... what happened that pissed her off so much? Several sources who work on the show tell TMZ, they believe Britney was reacting to a comment someone made in the audience, but they don't know what was said.

Check out the video closely. It looks like the music may have started late ... so that's a possible trigger as well. But no one is saying definitively.update_grey_gray_bar

Britney Spears stood up for herself Wednesday night during her show, when someone in the audience apparently called her a "fat bitch."

A guy standing next to the mic says "fat bitch", and you can clearly hear Britney say ... "f***ing asshole."

It's interesting on several levels. Critics of her show say she walks through her performance like a robot, but this clip clearly shows Britney's antennas are up.

Plus, her mic was on ... during a song!!!     

And she doesn't take crap from random people.  Are you listening Sam Lutfi?

Floyd Mayweather

SORRY JAY Z

... Not Going to Your Party

4/15/2015 6:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

He can DEFINITELY afford tickets, but Floyd Mayweather says he WON'T be hitting up Jay Z's post-fight mega-party in Vegas -- there's another place he's already committed to be. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Money at his media day workout at his gym near the Las Vegas strip Tuesday night ... when we pointed out all of the post-fight party options ... Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Snoop, Jay, etc.

By the way, VIP packages for Jay's shindig are on sale for up to $50k!!! Insane, but a drop in the bucket for Floyd. 

So, where will Mayweather get down after he steps out of the ring?? His answer is pretty shocking ... 

Three 6 Mafia Rapper

Tells Cops ...

I Wanted Coke, Not Meth!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0414-churchy-black-mug-WATERMARK-01

Three 6 Mafia rapper Crunchy Black is a man who knows what he wants when it comes to drugs ... but according to cops he isn't too good at getting it. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the Oscar winner was roaming the streets of Vegas early Tuesday when he was stopped for walking into an intersection when the "do not cross" light was flashing.

It didn't take long for cops to discover meth.

According to the police report, Crunchy's response was hilariously incriminating. He said, "Oh damn. I was trying to buy that powder, not meth." 

For bad measure the 'Three 6' rapper also had 2 warrants for his arrest. He was booked for possession and for providing a phony name. He's still in custody.

Crunchy has other problems. He's still a wanted man in Minnesota after allegedly beating his girlfriend in a hotel room.

A rep for Crunchy Black tells us the rapper wants to move forward with his life and will handle the charges in court. Some advice ... don't move forward when the "don't walk" sign is flashing.

Rapper YC

Busted Cheating in Vegas

Fiancee Ditches Him at the Altar!

EXCLUSIVE

0410-yc-tia-anderson-getty-tmz-02Rapper YC -- aka Yung Chris -- just learned fidelity is a key part of marriage ... especially the night before your wedding.

YC and his GF of 5 years, Tia Anderson ... decided to elope at the end of March, and invited a handful of family and friends to join them at the Bellagio in Vegas. What they didn't plan on was the smokin' hot bartender.

YC's rep Kali Bowyer says Tia spotted YC -- best known for his hit, "Racks" -- getting handsy with a hotel bartender on Friday night ... and immediately pulled the plug on the Saturday ceremony.

YC's telling friends nothing happened with the drink-slinger, but admits it was heading in that direction. Not that it matters to Tia ... the damage was done.

As for the ring -- we're told Tia's keeping it. If YC's looking for ice ... try the bartender.

And husband Garry's got one too
We all scratched and said "Who knew?"

Barry Manilow was belting out one of his many hits at the MGM Grand in Vegas with a shiny wedding ring on his finger.

Now we know who Barry can't smile without.

Mayweather Fight

HISTORIC WEEKEND FOR HOS

... Says Bishop Don Juan

4/10/2015 6:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The weekend of the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight will be LEGENDARY for pimps, hos, marks, mark ass marks, trick ass marks, punk bitches and skip skap scallywags alike. 

At least according to one of the most famous (and perhaps the most celebrated) pimp of all time ... Bishop Don "Magic" Juan. 

The Bishop was hangin' at Berri's Cafe on Third in L.A. when he told us Sin City will be a virtual ho-asis on May 2nd ... because hos go where the money is. 

"People are bringing hundreds of thousands [of dollars] just to throw away," Bishop says. 

BTW, there will be serious competition -- because prostitution is legal in various parts of Nevada .... unlike Arizona (lookin' at you Warren Sapp).
