British Politician 'I USE POPPERS' ... Proposed Ban Is 'Stupid'

1/20/2016 8:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0120-crispin-blunt-getty-01A famous British politician has admitted he's a full-fledged "poppers" enthusiast -- and says a proposed ban to outlaw the drug would be "fantastically stupid."

The man on the pro-poppers crusade is MP (Member of Parliament) Crispin Blunt -- an openly gay man who also happens to be the uncle of actress Emily Blunt

Blunt was speaking about a bill to ban certain recreational drugs -- including poppers -- when he revealed that he's a big fan of the stuff ... sometimes used by gay men to prepare their bodies for sex. 

"I use poppers," Blunt said ... "I out myself as a poppers user. And would be directly affected by this legislation. And I was astonished to find that it’s proposed they be banned and, frankly, so were very many gay men."

He continued ... "There are sometimes that something is proposed which becomes personal to you and you realize the government is about to do something fantastically stupid and in those circumstances one has a duty to speak up."

Blunt says a ban on the drug would force users to get it illegally -- putting people at risk.

"The issue is about supply and, what it might do to someone like me, is to put me into the hands of the criminals to get my supply for something that I used to think was perfectly OK."

Blunt clarified he's was talking about someone "like me" ... "obviously not me, because I respect the law of the land."

Caitlyn Jenner I'm Ready To Date A Man!

Breaking News

Caitlyn Jenner is done dating women. 

In the season 2 trailer for "I Am Cait" she flat out says it ... "To be honest I don't see myself dating women in the future." 

Up to this point, Cait's been very coy about her dating life -- and she's been on the fence about whether she supports same sex marriages. So maybe she's tipping her hand by deciding to date men.

One other option? It's all BS ... since this is a promo and nobody gives promo like a Jenner/Kardashian. 


La La Anthony Fed Up with 'Bama Gay Marriage Ruling ... That's Ridiculous!

1/8/2016 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

La La Anthony's got a pretty direct response to the Alabama Chief Justice directing state judges to deny gay couples seeking marriage licenses.

We got to the "Power" star in NYC Thursday night, and asked about the controversial directive issued by Chief Justice Roy Moore -- ordering judges to continue upholding Alabama's ban on gay marriage -- despite the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling last year which essentially legalized the unions.

La La DID NOT mince her words. Check out the clip.

Caitlyn Jenner Quietly Cancels Speaking Tour

1/7/2016 3:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0107-caitlyn-jenner-tmzCaitlyn Jenner's 5-city speaking tour is over before it even gets off the ground.  

The "Unique Lives and Experiences" tour was set to kick off in Toronto on February 22, but people close to Caitlyn tell TMZ ... she had scheduling conflicts, so they've pulled the plug.

We spoke to the Toronto venue and they told us there were still "a lot" of tix left for Caitlyn's speaking engagement when she backed out. Despite that, we're told it was absolutely canceled purely due to the scheduling issues.

Interestingly, Bruce's speeches used to sell out on the reg. Maybe Caitlyn should reach back for a few tips on how to fill the house. 



Sam Smith Horsing Around with Friends

1/6/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0105-sam-smith-tmz-01Sam Smith partied in London at a landmark gay club that might have the most uniquely awesome promotional night ever ... called -- wait for it -- Horse Meat Disco! 

Yeah, Sam showed up for Eagle London's regular Sunday night event with a few older gents. Smith stayed for a while, drinking pints, dancing and horsing around, naturally.

HMD Sundays are not to be confused with Hot n' Hairy Mondays or Get Laid Wednesdays -- all of which prove London promoters are creative as hell.

No actual horses were harmed at the club. We think. 


'RHOA' Producers Amiyah Scott Didn't Quit ... We Didn't Want Her!

1/3/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1230-amiyah-scott-instagram-facebookAmiyah Scott might be telling people she walked off the set of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," but producers are singing a different tune ... she was just boring as crap so they scrapped her.

Scott -- who would have been the first transgender female cast member -- got a trial run and claims she walked off the set because they were trying to sexually exploit her.

But our production sources say Amiyah never walked off ... she just didn't make the cut because she brought nothing interesting to the table ... being transgender doesn't make you automatically interesting.

As for claims she was forced to wear lingerie ... producers say that's ridiculous. Porsha Williams  -- who has a lingerie line -- thought Amiyah was beautiful and made the offer and Amiyah declined ... simple as that.

It all worked out in the end for Amiyah ... Lee Daniels has just cast her on a new TV show


Amiyah Scott 'RHOA' Treats Transgender People as a Joke ... I Quit!!!

12/29/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1228_Amiyah-Scott_instagramAmiyah Scott was a wet dream for producers of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," the prospect of a transgender cast member made them salivate, and she's so disgusted she just quit.

Amiyah was on the show for a trial -- the first transgender woman ever on the 'Housewives' franchise. We're told producers were prodding Amiyah to sexualize herself ... wearing lingerie and acting like a vixen.

We're told she bristled at the notes because she wanted to become a role model for other transgendered people. And we're told she was doubly insulted because they tried making her the bitch of the cast, trashing the other housewives.

After a month of filming, she walked off the set, saying she was done.

It worked out for Amiyah ... Lee Daniels has just cast her on a new TV show


Caitlyn Jenner That's Not My Boyfriend ... That's My Kid!!

12/24/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Caitlyn Jenner and son Burt got mistaken for boyfriend and girlfriend ... hilarious for sure, but it soon turned ugly.

Caitlyn and 37-year-old Burt Jenner went to lunch Monday in West L.A. when photogs jumped to the conclusion they were hooking up and peppered them with questions. 

Check out the video. You see Caitlyn leave and Burt blocked one of the photogs so he couldn't follow her. When the photog gets out of his car -- presumably to confront Burt -- Caitlyn's son goes on the attack.

We did not include the last part of the video, where the photog starts making vile comments, hurling homophobic slurs and denigrating Caitlyn. It's really awful.  

Gilbert Arenas Most WNBA Players Are Ugly Lesbians

12/16/2015 7:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1216-gilbert-arenas-tmz-01Gilbert Arenas says he can save the WNBA -- get rid of all the ugly chicks who look like they belong in "Orange is the New Black" ... and swap 'em out for hot chicks in thongs. 

Sexist? Very ... but Gilbert doesn't seem to care -- essentially saying the WNBA's biggest problem is that it's overrun with unattractive women. 

The ex-NBA superstar posted a video of 2 hot models hoopin' around in thongs and wrote, "NOW this is what america was hoping for when they announced the #WNBA back in 1996... not a bunch of chicks running around looking like,cast members from #orangeisthenewblack."

1216-sub-gilbert-arenas-lrm-03But wait, there's more ... 

Arenas added, "Dont get me wrong, they have few #cutiepies but theres a whole alotta #beanpies running around."

"If Skylar Diggins came out like this, I dont care if she missed every layup ... imma buy season tickets and I dont even know where the f*ck #tulsa is."

And to his critics, Arenas says ... "If u think this is sexist,9 times out of 10 u the ugly one and we didnt pay to come see u play anyway."

Jalen Rose Not Enough Outrage Over Gay Slurs

12/16/2015 6:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

People aren't pissed off enough about Rajon Rondo's gay slur -- which is why he only got a 1 game suspension ... so says Jalen Rose

Check out the clip ... the ex-NBA superstar essentially says society isn't sophisticated enough yet to understand the full negative impact of a homphobic slur like the F-word -- though we're moving in the right direction. 

"That same statement now is [a 1 game suspension] ... but as we get more sophisticated as a country ... that comment will be worth more games."

As for NBA sensitivity training -- Rose says the players should KNOW by now not to hurl slurs at people.

"You're a professional athlete ... figure out what to say and what not to say."

Jason Collins 'No Defense' For Rondo's Homophobic Slur

12/15/2015 10:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"I think there's no defense for using that kind of language" -- Jason Collins on Rajon Rondo

Collins -- the 1st openly gay player in NBA history -- was at LAX Tuesday when we asked for his thoughts on Rondo hurling a homophobic slur at an NBA ref earlier this month ... a ref who later came out as gay.

Collins is clearly upset with the Sacramento Kings star -- who has since apologized -- but says he has a plan when it comes to preventing this kind of crap in the future. 

Rajon Rondo Apologizes for Gay Slurs ... I'm No Homophobe

Breaking News

1214-rajon-rondo-GETTY-01Sacramento Kings star Rajon Rondo swears he's no homophobe -- despite the fact he hurled gay slurs at a gay NBA ref -- saying the whole thing was out of frustration... not out of gay hatred.

Rondo was suspended earlier this week after he cussed out NBA referee Bill Kennedy on Dec. 3rd -- calling him a "motherf**king f**got" while storming off the court. 

Kennedy has since come out as a gay man -- leading to a closer inspection into Rondo's verbal attack. 

But Rondo insists he's not anti-gay -- saying, "My actions during the game were out of frustration and emotion, period!"

"They absolutely do not reflect my feelings toward the LGBT community. I did not mean to offend or disrespect anyone."

Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé has also weighed in -- saying, "Rajon's comment is not reflective of the culture of the Sacramento Kings organization or the world we want to live in."

"He's apologized, and has been suspended by the NBA. On behalf of the team, I apologize to Bill Kennedy for any harm this may have caused."

Ex 'Love & Hip Hop: ATL' Stars Our Love Is Too Real For Reality TV

12/7/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars Margeaux and Merike think they got the boot because producers have a thing against gays.  

The girlfriends were doing date night at Nobu in WeHo and they groused that producers were sketchy as to why they were given their walking papers, and whether there's a sinister move afoot to keep them from doing another reality show.

When you listen to them it sounds like this is more than a fling ... way more.
