Corey Feldman

Rips Baseball Team

Bitch Set Me Up!

8/20/2015 8:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Corey Feldman says his ill-fated performance at a minor league baseball game last month was doomed from the start ... because the team had concocted a diabolical plot to humiliate him. 

You know the gig ... Feldman's band was the post-game entertainment for the State College Spikes on July 19th -- a performance which the Spikes thought was so terrible, they issued an apology to their fans. 

But Feldman says HE'S the one who got the shaft -- telling TMZ Sports the whole thing was a "set up" ... and says the team's G.M. launched his anti-Feldman smear campaign simply for publicity. 

Check out the clip ... Corey is especially pissed because he claims the bad press cost his band a highly coveted gig at the Special Olympics. 

By the way ... watch Feldman's performance again -- even if you don't like the music, the guy sang his heart out -- and ya gotta respect that.

Leave That Unruly Fan Alone!!

EXCLUSIVE

Travis Scott beat on security guards at his concert to protect an extremely unruly fan, and it was all caught on video.

Scott was performing at the SLS in Vegas Tuesday night when a fan in the front row tried clawing his way on stage. Security stepped in, presumably to protect Travis. But the rapper turned on them.

The situation escalated as more guards got involved and Travis got more aggressive.

Eventually, the fan made it up on stage to party with Travis for a bit before crowd surfing away.

0818-kelly_clarkson-gettyKelly Clarkson just made a tearful announcement in the middle of her L.A. concert -- she's knocked up again!

Clarkson broke the news to the crowd at her Staples Center show Wednesday night ... and said she decided to come clean because she was getting emotional while singing her song, "Piece by Piece."

She joked that she didn't want fans to think she was on pills -- so, instead she blurted out she's expecting. She said she and husband Brandon Blackstock haven't really told some family members yet, so ... oops?

This is baby #2 for Kelly and Brandon. They had a baby girl in June 2014.

Gives The Funnest Rides Of All Time

8/19/2015 12:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This guy is gunning for 5 stars every time because he's turning his routine point A to point B rides into a 1, 2 step and a Do-Re-Mi in his car.

Jonathan must be a huge fan of "The Weeknd" 'cause he transformed his Uber ride into a full-on music video for the song "Can't Feel My Face" ... and everyone involved seemed to love it.

He may not be able to feel his face but he better make sure he feels the steering wheel while he's driving.

Zayn Malik Ex-Fiancee

Loses It on Live TV

Over Breakup

8/19/2015 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Zayn Malik's ex-fiancee, Perrie Edwards, broke down and bawled during a live performance Wednesday during her group's breakup track, "The End."

The Little Mix singer, who up until last month was engaged to the One Direction departee, stopped singing after one tear led to a waterfall. Luckily for her, the rest of the group provided more than enough shoulders to cry on.  

Malik called off the engagement, totally blindsiding Edwards. From the looks of it ... she's not over it yet.

Girl, no one's ever died of a broken heart.

Action Bronson

Getting Sued For Sampling Salsa

8/19/2015 6:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Action Bronson’s big appetite for Latin music is coming back to haunt him … he’s being sued for allegedly ripping off 2 tracks by Puerto Rican salsa legends El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico.

The owners of El Gran Combo's songs “Falsaria” and “Trampolin” say the tracks were sampled without permission on Bronson's songs "Mofongo" and "Tapas."

They say Bronson even admitted on Twitter in 2011 he sampled “Falsaria” and single out a 2014 Inquisitor interview where the Queens rapper gushed, "I like to cook to Spanish and Latin music. If you're in the kitchen ... I'd suggest bands like El Gran Cambo de Puerto Rico."

They bring up his affinity for  naming songs after food dishes … “Mofongo,” is also the name of a popular Puerto Rican dish. 

They claim Bronson has made and is still making bank off the plagiarism because the tracks are still all over music platforms. The owners want Bronson to stop distribution and pay them damages.

Come to My New Restaurant

Eat a Meatloaf Cupcake!

EXCLUSIVE

T.I. is pushing the frontiers of cuisine in his new ATL restaurant, where meatloaf cupcakes are on the menu.

We got T.I. Monday at Equinox in L.A., and he gave us the lowdown on Scales 925, what he calls his upscale soul food eatery. 

T.I. has his fingers in all the pies, testing everything. He gives us menu highlights, but never explains the whole meatloaf cupcake thing.

Maybe it's the next kale. 

Wiz Khalifa and Rita Ora

Teen Choice Awards Not a One-Off

8/18/2015 5:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wiz Khalifa and Rita Ora are pretty clearly together ... not for certain, but pretty clearly.

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, they showed up together at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood for dinner. They didn't mind the cameras and walked in together and out together.

The pair got all snuggly Sunday, backstage at the Teen Choice Awards.

Amber Rose and Rob anyone?

NOFX

No Hippies

No Exceptions

8/18/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Fat Mike doesn’t want hippies to use the side door at NOFX concerts … he doesn’t want them to come at all because the punk rockers have a very strict NO HIPPIE policy, as one guy found out the hard way.

The lead singer stopped a concert in Halifax, Nova Scotia last week and offered an old dude decked out in tie-dye $100 to leave, because his Grateful Dead t-shirt was ruining his mojo.

Fat Mike, who's even penned a track called "It's My Job to Keep Punk Rock Elite," tells TMZ he'd rather "listen to Dick Cheney play guitar than Jerry Garcia."

He says, "Punk rock started because of those terrible dinosaur bands playing 8 minute terrible songs. The Ramones showed the world what rock 'n' roll is supposed to sound like."

Fat Mike ended up giving the hippie $20 to take the shirt off during the concert. And for safe measure, Fat Mike kept it.

Gotta hand it to the fan… wearing a tie-dye t-shirt to a NOFX show ... anarchy in its own right.

Lionel Richie

Going Hard in Greece ...

All Night Long!!

8/17/2015 10:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lionel Richie jumped on a table in a bar, and gave a bunch of drunk tourists a night to remember ... when the DJ cued up his famous party anthem.

The awesome scene went down on Mykonos ... where Lionel's on vacay, and all you need to know is the bar was packed with people slamming champagne. Lionel was obviously feeling really goooood ... then "All Night Long" came on, and everyone lost their minds.

This could only be better if the DJ followed up with "Dancing on the Ceiling." Watch, it's almost enough to make Greece forget it's going broke.

Almost.

Birdman Sued

Producer Claims He Got Stiffed ...

EXCLUSIVE

0814-birdaman-dvlp-bigram-zayas-tmz-getty-01Birdman is accused of using the social media version of "The check's in the mail" to blow off Lil Wayne's producer who is now suing him for a fortune.

The producer -- who goes by DVLP -- had his people make various demands that Birdman and Cash Money cough up $200,000 for work he did on albums for Wayne and other artists.

Birdman's response shows the new frontier in blowing off creditors. Forget a lawyer's letter ... Birdman is all about texting DVLP to hold him at bay.  

Some of the texts ...

-- "I'm getting yu paid"

-- "I'm working with yu fam"

-- "You gone get tht 200k"

-- "s**t GETTIN don"

Apparently it didn't, because DVLP is taking it to a judge.
