11/21/2017 8:24 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Here's Common saying he had NO IDEA his ex-girlfriend, Serena Williams, tied the knot last week ... but he's congratulating her anyway in one of the most interesting clips of the day.

Common and Serena were one of Hollywood's "It" couples earlier this decade -- so when we got him out at Equinox gym in L.A. we asked him what he thought of his old flame tying the knot.

"Nah, I didn't see it ... but God bless her. That's the queen! She's the queen! Congratulations to them!"

Serena's wedding was a massive celebrity-filled mega-event -- with stars like Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Ciara in attendance.

One last thing ... Common follows both Serena and Vogue on Instagram (Vogue posted a ton of Serena's wedding pics) -- so, we gotta ask ...

11/21/2017 7:14 AM PST

Wiz Khalifa's two favorite indulgences merged during a night out -- a joint and a smoke show GF.

The rapper hit up Poppy Monday night in WeHo with his crew but it's his main squeeze who stole the show. They held hands on the way in ... and if there was any doubt Wiz is quite the romantic, check out the hand switch on the walk in. Never wants to let go, it seems.

Can't blame Wiz for staying mum ... his girl's walkin' is doin' all the talkin'.

As for who she is ...  L.A.-based model Izabela Guedes, who not only has been plastered all over Wiz's Instagram lately, but is also the cover model for Wiz's new mixtape.

Easy to see why ... 

Jay-Z This Little Girl's Gonna Be Prez ... Don't You Forget It!

11/21/2017 7:50 AM PST

Jay-Z took a stand against sexism as he spotted a future POTUS in the middle of his Cleveland concert -- 'cause ya gotta vote for that face! Right?

Jay stopped between songs to address a young girl in the front row Sunday night -- sweetly reminding her she can grow up to be anything she wants. It was a super cute moment, as he delivered a serious message, telling fans sexism is a bigger problem in America than racism.

While that might be debatable -- no one was arguing with him about the young fan's potential to make it to the White House.

Don't worry, Blue Ivy ... Daddy thinks you can be Prez, too.

Beach Boys Singer Mike Love Music Could Have Saved Manson Victims

11/21/2017 6:59 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Beach Boys singer Mike Love has nothing but bad feelings about Charles Manson, but he says something about the deceased murderer that is truly shocking.

We got Mike in NYC Monday signing autographs, and he told our photog if Manson had a music career maybe his victims would have been spared.

In case you didin't know ... Manson actually wrote a song The Beach Boys recorded -- "Never Learn Not to Love" -- but when the group realized how crazy he was they cut him loose. That enraged Manson, and when he sent members of his cult to Sharon Tate's home, the conventional wisdom is that he thought the previous tenant was still living there -- Beach Boys producer Terry Melcher.

Back in the day Beach Boys member Dennis Wilson partied hard with the Manson girls ... lots of drugs and sex.   

Bruno Mars Sued Kid Elvis Pic of You Is a Treasure But I Own It, Pay Me!!!

11/20/2017 10:38 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bruno Mars engaged in a little jailhouse rock when he slapped a pic of himself as a pint-sized Elvis Presley impersonator all over his social media ... at least according to the photog who just sued Bruno.

Catherine McGann says she snapped this 1989 shot of Bruno -- when he would've been just 3 or 4 years old, but was already famously performing the King's hits. McGann says she owns the copyright on the shot ... so, she was shocked to see it pop up all over Bruno's social media.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says he posted it back in June on his IG, FB and Twitter pages ... for a "Way Back Wednesday" that blew up. McGann says it garnered more than 1.2 million likes on Instagram alone. In other words ... 24k magic!

Now, it doesn't take a suspicious mind to figure out the alleged problem here -- McGann says Bruno never got permission to use her copyrighted work. She's suing Bruno and his record label, Warner Music, for damages and all profits they earned from her photo.

Thank you very much.

Common's GF Angela Rye Wave of Death Threats ... They're Gonna Find You 'Dead In a River'

11/21/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

CNN political analyst Angela Rye is getting flooded with menacing threats, and she says it began after she started dating Common ... TMZ has learned.

According to court docs, Rye said she's received annoying, harassing and threatening messages on her phone, social media and email. She says they were just annoying and derogatory at first, but got scary when the sender got specific.

Angela and Common reportedly became a thing over the summer -- and cops say some of the messages referenced locations they visited that were not publicized. Then on August 5, Rye got an email that included the following: "Yr dumb dead ass gonna be found in a river" and "Let me catch ya ass I'm put the paws on ya."

LAPD obtained search warrants to dig through the sender's social media. They have his or her screen name, and we're told the Threat Management division is on the case.

EXCLUSIVE

Christina Aguilera's tribute to Whitney Houston during Sunday's AMAs was heartfelt, lovely and fabulous ... according to Whitney's sister-in-law.

We got Pat Houston at LAX and asked what she thought of folks hating on Christina's performance -- with some even suggesting it made P!nk cringe.

Pat's not buying that -- in fact, she says the homage was "amazing." According to her, the only opinions that matter are Christina's and Whit's fam ... and it sounds like she nailed the latter.

As for P!nk's apparent reaction, Pat's got an explanation. Hint ... what does everyone do right before they cry?

Selena Gomez I Was Really Singing at AMAs ... To a Backing Track

11/20/2017 10:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Selena Gomez wasn't lip-syncing during her American Music Awards performance Sunday ... she did what other performers Christina Aguilera, Nick Jonas and Hailee Steinfeld did and used a backing track.

Twitter went off on Selena's first public performance since getting a kidney transplant earlier this summer. Fans called her a "fraud" and accused her of lip-syncing her new single, "Wolves," since she kept her head down and covered her face for most of it.

But sources close to Bieber's gal tell us that's not true and she only used a backing track on the chorus, which is common during live performances. She also didn't dance because she wanted to sing live. It's also possible the live feed wasn't mixed properly for TV.

As for looking miserable during the performance ... we're told it was all part of the act and that she wasn't sad at all.

EXCLUSIVE

Lil Peep took a nap before his Tucson show and never woke up ... according to the police report.

Peep's manager says she saw the rapper early Wednesday on his tour bus and he appeared to be fine. She says Peep took a nap around 5:45 PM and when she checked on him a short time later he was snoring and breathing without issue. After being unable to wake him, she decided to let him sleep longer.

The report says when Peep's other manager checked on him later in the night, the rapper was completely unresponsive and his team began CPR.

Cops say when they arrived, they discovered several Xanax pills, loose marijuana and an unknown tan powder on the rapper's tour bus.

Lil Peep was just 21.

"LaVar Ball. Good lookin' out. I wouldn't have thanked the motherf**ker either."

That's Snoop Dogg heaping all sorts of praise on LaVar Ball and Marshawn Lynch in a heated rant about President Trump

Snoop slams Trump as "garbage" and a "piece of s**t" for the way he's publicly treated the Ball family and Lynch ... he doesn't hold back. 

"Let's suspend your ass motherf**ker," Snoop said in a response to Trump calling for the NFL to bench Lynch if he doesn't stand for the national anthem in the future. 

Snoop says Americans should be ashamed of Trump -- and declares, "He ain't [my president]."

The Chainsmokers P!nk's Mid-Air Singing ... 'Most Ridiculous Thing Ever'

11/20/2017 8:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

P!nk's death-defying stunt for the American Music Awards was "ridiculous," according to The ChainsmokersAndrew Taggart -- and that's a good thing.

We got the duo heading to Madeo Sunday night in L.A. after the AMAs and we asked Andrew about P!nk's performance as she hung off the side of the JW Marriott Hotel ... a good 34 floors up!

Andrew's reaction is pretty blunt. But when asked if he'd ever do anything like it ... you could see the terror in his eyes. Pretty sure it ain't gonna happen while he's in the group. Alex Pall, on the other hand, was pretty stoked!

Christina Aguilera Here's My Reaction to P!nk's Reaction

11/20/2017 6:52 AM PST

Christina Aguilera saw P!nk's grimace and raised her ... a grin.

We got Christina leaving The Nice Guy in WeHo after the American Music Awards. Judging from the stone-cold look on her face Xtina'd already heard about P!nk's facial reaction to her Whitney Houston tribute during the show.

P!nk's apparent reaction went viral with many thinking she was not feeling the performance. Well, Christina gave us her own reaction ... to the reaction.

They've had bad blood before -- remember Christina tried punching P!nk in the face years ago. Still, P!nk tried early on to diffuse this AMA beef with a tweet because she said she loved the performance.

Wonder what Christina thought of P!nk's act.

Madonna Nude Pics at 18 Up for Auction

11/20/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Madonna more than dropped trou in front of a camera when she was 18 years old ... she went au naturel, and TMZ has the photos that are about to hit the auction block.

Gotta Have Rock and Roll -- the same guys that had Tupac's confession letter to M -- will auction off a bunch of Madge's earliest known original nude pics with original negatives and copyrights. To be exact ... 108 images and each with an opening bid between $800 and $1,200.

The pics show Madonna at the Art World Institute of Creative Arts where photographer Cecil I. Taylor got behind the lens. Madonna met the photographer when she lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

There's also young M's signature -- along with Cecil's -- on the model release form she signed on May 19, 1977. It's also up for bid, and it all goes down Wednesday.

Madonna has fought tooth and nail to keep other items off the auction block, including her underwear and a letter to Tupac.
