Tom Keifer had to cancel a concert this weekend 'cause he was rushed to a hospital -- but the good news is he's making it up to fans ... TMZ has learned.

The Cinderella frontman's rep tells TMZ ... Tom collapsed prior to his show Saturday in Warrendale, PA and was rushed to a hospital. Tests found he was experiencing severe dehydration and heat exhaustion ... which put him out of commission and kept him there overnight.

We're told docs found Tom to be in stable condition and he's been given fluids through the night. He's expected to be released from the hospital Sunday -- and even better ... he plans to revisit his show in Warrendale later this week.

Lana Del Rey Don't Believe Your Ears ... My Sexy Song's Not About Weinstein

10/15/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lana Del Rey's 2012 track about preferring older men is NOT about Harvey Weinstein ... despite what people's ears are leading them to believe.

Lana's song, "Cola," features the lyrics ... "I got a taste for men who are older / It's always been, so it's no surprise," and is followed by the line, "Harvey's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me crazy" -- or so people think.

Even the top search results for the lyrics back up what people think, that the song references Harvey.  

Sources close to Del Rey tell us the song is not linked to Weinstein or any Harvey for that matter. They say the actual lyrics go this way ... "Ah he's in the sky with diamonds." We've checked the album's digital booklet ... and the lyrics reference "Ah he's," not "Harvey." 

Listen for yourself ... sure sounds like there's a "v" sound.

Drake Bell Quit Throwing Stuff, Punk Kids ... I Will Stop This Concert!!!

10/15/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake Bell got totally pissed off at a crowd of high schoolers who hurled balls at him -- then fired back at them with a tongue-lashing worthy of your old homeroom teacher.

The "Drake & Josh" star's band was rocking the Northwest School of the Arts in Charlotte when the crowd got restless, and cleaned out a nearby ball pit. Sources at the school tell us Drake opened with songs from his new album which nobody knew. Major party foul for the kids, who started firing the balls onstage.

The video's hysterical ... DB reached his boiling point while playing the "Drake & Josh" theme, and whipped a ball back at the crowd -- then stopped the show to shame them.

Future advice for Drake: play the hits, bro. Just the hits.

Nelly Rape Accuser Says She Will NOT Testify

10/13/2017 2:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4:20 PM PT -- Nelly's attorney Scott Rosenblum tells us ...the accuser's "reckless accusation, once investigated thoroughly, was exposed for what it was-a fabrication. A fabrication that has caused Nelly and his family to suffer emotionally and financially."

He's not satisfied though, and says he wants a public apology from the woman, and will recommend Nelly consider taking legal action against her.The woman who accused Nelly of rape is refusing to testify, and wants the whole matter dropped ... TMZ has learned.

The woman's attorney, Karen Koehler, says her client has told the Auburn PD in Washington State, and the King County D.A. to "put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly]. She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him."

Koehler says the young woman feels the system has failed her and she can't stand up to a celebrity. "Who will believe her. People are saying horrible things already. She cannot handle this. She is about to break."

Koehler added ... the woman was especially dismayed by the fact police told the media she had met with them and prosecutors -- after she was assured no one would know about the meeting until the investigation was closed. 

TMZ broke the story ... the accuser told police Nelly raped her on his tour bus early last Saturday morning. He denied the allegation, and claimed she was motivated by greed, money and fame.

The woman's refusal to testify would make it difficult, although not impossible, for prosecutors to move forward with a case.

Alesso & Anitta Shaaa Man ... Amazon Music Vid Shoot Was Awesome!!!

10/13/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Swedish DJ Alesso and Brazilian singer Anitta teamed up to make a music video in the middle of the jungle ... but they couldn't have done it without a shaman-for-hire.

Sources close to production tell TMZ ... shooting the "Is That for Me" music vid was no easy task, because Alesso and Anitta did it on location in Manaus, Brazil. It's deep in the rain forest, and difficult to access.

Shooting 3 hours from any major city, we're told production set up a makeshift village -- more than 100 cast and crew, generators for all their electricity and tons of bug repellent. One issue they couldn't tackle was the weather -- and that's where the shaman went to work.

We're told Anitta hired the Brazilian shaman to bring good weather each day, so they could keep the shoot on schedule. Based on the behind-the-scenes footage -- the shaman earned his keep.

Check out the final result for yourself when the video drops Friday.
