Jamie Foxx's Nat'l Anthem

Blame It On the A A A Alcohol

... Says Marlon Wayans

5/4/2015 4:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Look, Jamie Foxx's version of the National Anthem was not great ... but it wasn't Roseanne Barr either ... so says Marlon Wayans ... who says he has an idea why Jamie may have shot a brick at the Mayweather fight. 

Long story short ... Marlon suspects the booze is to blame -- since Jamie was partying with some big dawgs like Puffy and Floyd ... and ultimately gave in the power of the blue dot. 

For the record, Wayans says Foxx is a talented genius who's got serious pipes -- he just had an off night. 

But he does issue Foxx a challenge ... a National Anthem sing-off. Check out the clip ... he's not bad. 

Adrien Broner

BANGS BACCARAT TABLE

... After Massive Win

5/4/2015 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Here's footage of boxing superstar Adrien Broner GOING ABSOLUTELY BERSERK after winning at the baccarat table in Vegas Sunday night ... yelling, screaming and AIR HUMPING the table. 

It's unclear how much cash Broner had on the table in the high roller's room at the MGM Grand -- but it must have been A LOT ... because any normie woulda been kicked out of the place in a heartbeat. 

The video is pretty hilarious ... Broner starts yelling about how he "f**ked this town up" with "no condoms" ... while thrusting his junk into the table. 

Congrats. 

BTW -- Broner's weekend was definitely eventful ... here's video of AB pounding a whole lotta tequila at a post-fight party. 

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

GET BENCHED

Forced to Wait for a Table!

5/1/2015 9:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501_kim_kardashian_kanye_west_waiting_sushi_launch2The folks at Shibuya Sushi have cojones the size of Kim Kardashian's butt cheeks ... because they had the chutzpah to make KK and Kanye West sit outside and actually WAIT FOR A TABLE. The humanity!!!

The couple stopped off in Calabasas after Kim's appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" ... thinking they'd be able to grab a quick bite to eat. But the restaurant was full and Kimye was forced to hit the bench out front and wait ... for a whopping 30 minutes!

To add insult to injury, when they finally got seated ... it was at a table by the window which ain't great when you're photographed as much as they are.

FYI ... Shibuya Sushi is very well-reviewed on Yelp, but these pics are the best advertising ever.

Our sushi is so good, even Kimye will wait for it!

Take ex Carl's Jr. hotties Kate Upton, Audrina Patridge, and Charlotte McKinney ... and their combined age would still be younger than Mary Bartnicki -- who's gunning to be the next burger babe.

Mary -- 1/3 of the 'Golden Sisters' -- is 83 years old and throwing her Depends in the ring to be the new face of Carl's Jr. She's serious and even put together a sexy car wash vid to prove she can still work it, by which we mean ... chew a burger.

'SNL' Star Cecily Strong

Cracks Racist Cops Joke on Obama ...

As Baltimore Riots Raged

4/26/2015 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cecily Strong went in HARD on President Obama and the Secret Service with an envelope-pushing joke about cops killing black men -- and she did it just miles from the Baltimore riots over that very issue.

Cecily hosted the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night, and got the biggest reaction from the room when she said the Secret Service is "the only law enforcement agency in the country that will get in trouble if a black man gets shot."

The crowd was still gasping when she unleashed another racially charged follow-up.

0426-baltimore-orioles-jumbotron-warning-TWITTER-01Around the same time -- 30 miles outside the Beltway -- the Baltimore riots over Freddie Gray's death in police custody turned so violent police told Orioles fans to stay inside the stadium after the game.

We're guessing Cecily's jokes were written long before Baltimore erupted -- still, it was front page news all day leading up to the WHCD. So, we gotta ask ...  

Prez Obama

Upstaged by 'Angry' Key & Peele Star

4/26/2015 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obama made, arguably, the best decision of his presidency when he jacked a "Key & Peele" skit for his standout moment at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

If you missed it -- 'cause like most Americans, you don't watch CNN or C-Span on Saturday nights -- the prez brought out 'K&P' star Keegan-Michael Key to play his "anger translator" ... who says what POTUS is really thinking during speeches.

The bit always killed ... like it always does. Check out the pot shots at the media (including the W.H. Correspondents), Ted Cruz, and even Hillary Clinton.

Good move, B.O. ... leave the comedy to comedians. 

Dave Chappelle

Crowd Demands Refunds

For Slurry, Half Baked Show

4/25/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Dave Chappelle proved even comedic geniuses have off nights ... because hundreds of angry fans are demanding refunds after a Detroit performance many are calling a drunken catastrophe.

According to multiple people in the crowd during Thursday night's 9:30 show at the Fillmore ... a seemingly wasted Chappelle took the stage an hour late (mostly due to the crowd still being seated), and told very few jokes. Instead, he sat quietly smoking, rambling, and slurring his speech.

In this video you can hear someone in the crowd yell, "Let's hear some of the act!" Dave responds, "Well sir, it's a little late for that. Right now I've gotta get off the stage because it's 2:00 in the morning."

The crowd quickly reminds him it was only 1 AM.

Now fans are ripping Dave on Facebook, calling the show ... "A waste of time and money" ... "more like a press conference" ... and "HORRIBLE." Fans dropped anywhere from $50 to about $240 for tickets, and although many are demanding refunds ... a Fillmore spokesperson tells us they're not responsible for artists' content.

In other words ... tough luck, crowd.

As for Dave ... a rep tells us, "Out of the 50 shows on the tour, Thursday was definitely not his best set On the flip side, the incident inspired some additional sharp-witted material and (Friday) he came back with a vengeance."

New England Patriots

President Cracks

Deflategate, Gronk Jokes

4/23/2015 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Barack Obama went in way harder on the New England Patriots than Seahawks coach Pete Carroll did in in the Super Bowl -- unloading a ton of jokes poking fun at the champs.

Obama had his A-game working as he ripped Bill Belichick, Rob Gronkowski and even attempted a Boston accent. Fittingly, the joke that fell most flat ... his Deflategate material. The Pats did not seem amused.

Darrelle Revis was also at the event ... which could've been awkward since he left the team this offseason to sign with the rival NY Jets. 

Pats' Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler (who was singled out by Obama) told TMZ Sports it was no big deal having him there. "We all went to war together, we all practice and work hard together. He earned it just like we did."

Questlove

Kanye Was On Troll Patrol ...

Against Amy Schumer

4/23/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West had a great excuse for shooting Amy Schumer the death stare when she pulled her red carpet stunt on him and Kim Kardashian ... at least according to Amy's good friend, Questlove.

The Roots, and 'Tonight Show' drummer thinks Amy's pratfall at Time's Most Influential gala went right over Yeezy's head because the guy never lets his guard down in public ... and is way too worried about getting trolled.

The other reason, according to Questlove is ... Kanye thought Amy was just a random troll, and not a popular comedian -- with her own TV show, btw.

Check out the clip ... Q seems to think Amy can try this again next year -- and get different results.

Kanye & Kim

Not Funny, Amy Schumer ...

Get Off Our Red Carpet!

4/22/2015 7:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0422-kimye-amy-gettyIf looks killed, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian would have been booked for slaying Amy Schumer right on the red carpet of Time's fancy 100 most influential gala. 

Amy went for a quick laugh Tuesday night as Kimye cruised into the event -- faking a fall right in front of them as they posed for pics. Now, every comic knows a good pratfall gets a laugh every time ... UNLESS you're playing to an audience of 2 who ain't having it one bit.

Yeezy and KK's faces said it all ... 100% pure unimpressed shade. 

As for where Amy got the ridiculous idea it's fun to upstage people? Who knows ... maybe Taylor Swift and Beck have a clue.

Artie Lange says the best football players ... are the ones who get laid ... which is (partly) why he's TRASHING the Philadelphia Eagles for signing Tim Tebow

Lange -- HUUUUGE sports fan -- was out in NYC this morning ... when he crapped all over the Bird Gang ... "I don't think Tim Tebow can help you on any level."

Check out the clip ... Lange explains why he's convinced there's a direct correlation between constant bangin' ... and talent.
