Justin Bieber Rebel Takes a Pause ... With O.C. Bikers

11/25/2015 1:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125_JUSTIN_BIEBER_TMZThe same day Justin Bieber pulled out of promoting his album, he took a much needed break from working ... to chill at a biker bar!

According to our sources, after canceling his appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and his Thanksgiving Day Parade taping ... JB simply wanted to "feel normal" again.

We're told he took a trip to Orange County where he ended up at Cook's Corner ... a low-key biker bar. Our sources say Justin stayed for a few hours with one of his friends to eat cheeseburgers and play video games.

We're told he had a great time hanging with the locals who welcomed him with open arms. One of the bikers even invited Justin to take a spin, but he took a raincheck.

Probably smart.

1125-drake-sweatersDrake's "Hotline Bling" can only mean one thing ... HUGE ugly Christmas sweater sales.

With the success of the song, it's no surprise sales went from 0 to more than 100 real quick.

Merry 6-Mas.

11/25/2015 8:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1125-lil-boosie-instagramLil Boosie is asking fans to pray for him because he just found out he has kidney cancer. 

The Louisiana rapper posted his plea on Instagram, saying, "prayer is power that's why I'm letting the world know" about the diagnosis, but his announcement caught some people close to him off guard.

We're told Boosie's team was not happy he revealed his condition ... which is why the caption was deleted shortly after the initial posting. The photo of Boosie eating a meal remains on his IG. 

Boosie is only 33, but he's been living with diabetes for years. 

He just got out of prison last year ... after serving 5 years on a drug charge.



Wu-Tang Clan Sells ONE Album ... For MILLIONS!!!!

11/25/2015 6:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-wu-tang-getty-01Wu-Tang Clan ain't as crazy as you thought -- they just sold a single top secret album for more than $1 MILLION, and what IS crazy is ... the buyer can't share the music publicly!!

You'll recall the Wu announced it had spent 6 years recording a double album called "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" ... and would auction it off. Not a copy, but THE only album. Well, Forbes says the bizarre plan worked -- it sold at auction for a "price in the millions."

The American buyer wants to remain anonymous, like the record itself.

Part of the deal is he or she must wait 88 years to release the 31 cuts to the public -- which means RZA, GZA, Raekwon, Method Man et al. will NEVER hear the music played in a club or on the radio. On the plus side ... they'll probably die rich.

"Diversify your bonds, bitches!"


The Gap Band Lawsuit I Dropped a Bomb on My Brother

11/25/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


R&B legend "Uncle" Charlie Wilson is at war with his brother over just who exactly IS The Gap Band ... and who gets to keep making money off of the name. 

Ronnie Wilson filed a lawsuit claiming Charlie is derailing his efforts to launch a comeback tour. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Ronnie says he recently booked 2 big gigs -- one at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in NYC, and another at Howard Theatere in Washington, D.C.

Ronnie says after he sealed the deals, Charlie -- who left the band in 2009 -- had his people step in and somehow interfere with the bookings. Ronnie says both venues pulled the plug.

The elder Wilson points out his band existed for years before kid bro Charlie joined in '72. 


Ronnie says his new Gap Band stood to make more than $20k from the 2 gigs. He's suing for damages and to get the court to block Charlie from interfering with future bookings.

His point -- you might have been the lead singer, but this band is MINE, bro.

Jennifer Lawrence & Emma Stone Don't Worry ... We'll Get Your Duck, Adele

11/24/2015 2:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1124-adele-jennifer-lawrence-emma-splash-akmgsi-3The #1 album isn't the only thing Adele scored this week -- she got a free meal courtesy of her celebrity friends ... TMZ has learned. 

As we told you, Adele did dinner with Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone Monday night at Cosme NYC ... a Mexican restaurant in the Flat Iron District, and the big question's been -- "Who paid?"

Our sources tell us when the bill came ... Adele was told her money's no good here -- and Emma, J Law and a 4th non-famous diner split the tab.

As for what they ate -- we're told they went for duck carnitas, blue shrimp a la veracruzana, corn husk meringue, and beets with corn salsa and cheese. 

Fancy. And pricey ... the duck alone goes for $59!

1124-selena-niall-twitter-01Selena Gomez can't catch a break, or a date -- despite doing dinner with Niall Horan from One Direction ... she's still very, very single.

Our Selena sources say she and Niall have been friends for years ... never anything more. They saw each other at the AMAs after-party Sunday at The Nice Guy and decided to grab some grub at Nobu Monday night. 

Just friends ... kinda the same story we got after Justin Bieber serenaded Selena over the weekend. Would somebody just close the deal with this chick already?

Exclusive Details

1124-bieber-tmz-01Justin Bieber is totally spent -- emotionally and mentally -- and as a result he's pulling the plug on some big time appearances to promote his album.

Sources in Bieber's world tell us he's been on a virtual roller coaster -- with his moods swinging like a pendulum, and it's just become too much. We're told he's dealing with "personal issues," but it is NOT related to drugs or alcohol.

Justin cancelled his 'Late Show with Stephen Colbert' appearance, scheduled for tonight.

He was also supposed to tape a performance Tuesday evening to air during the Thanksgiving Day Parade on CBS -- but Justin's backed out of that too.

We got Justin and Corey Gamble in Bev Hills on Monday afternoon, and he already seemed to be on a down swing.   


Usher This Is My Package Confession ... Your Move, Game

11/24/2015 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1124-usher-the-game-instagramThis is getting out of hand ...

Usher is showing off his rock hard abs and some serious manscaping -- just a few weeks after The Game's huge pic blew up the Internet.

We're guessing it's not a direct response, since Usher opted for less showy black briefs. His real reason for sharing was purely inspirational -- "Workin' hard so I can eat this turkey."

As Ush put it ... U don't have to call. But you probably will after seeing this. 


Harry Styles I Fancy Jimmy Kimmel's Fanny

11/24/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-harry-styles-butt-grab-jimmy-kimmel-TMZ-01Harry Styles knows when you're onstage you're supposed to give performers a hand ... which may be why he grabbed Jimmy Kimmel's ass.

1123_kimmel_one_direction_front_gettyHarry and the rest of One Direction were guests on Kimmel's show Thursday and it all looked kosher from the front. What viewers didn't see was the ass grab from behind.

The performance was pretty epic BTW ... Hollywood Blvd was shut down for all the 1D fans ... one of whom snapped the butt pic. 

Looks like Kimmel's reflexes kicked in pretty quick ... he kept a straight face.

Skrillex was one of the headliners on the recent EDM cruise that had to return to port following the tragedy. Parts of the excursion were cancelled, and several performances were postponed.

As we reported ... many of the 3,000 fans who were onboard are pissed their trip was cut short -- and Skrillex addresses their concerns -- but the real takeaway is ... he's still torn up about the whole situation.

After the show, we got Charlie at Craig's and he was grinning from ear to ear -- looking a lot like a guy whose PDA turned into more than just kissing. Even though he tweeted "we are just friends" ... that's not the tune Charlie's singing in this clip.
