Akon 'Blacks for Trump' Guy's a Sellout ... Just Like the GOP

8/23/2017 2:20 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Akon thinks the guy holding the "Blacks for Trump" sign at his Phoenix rally has sold himself -- and the black community -- out for a quick buck ... not unlike the rest of the GOP.

We got the singer at LAX, and he gave us his 2 cents on Michael Symonette ... the lone black dude behind Trump on Tuesday ... and he thinks it's a case of sell-your-soul ... a game he also believes is being played by other Republicans to protect Trump.

It doesn't sound like Akon knows about Symonette's past -- or his current political philosophies -- and it's interesting that he tries painting him as someone who only supports Trump for an alleged payoff. 

Still, he makes a good point about what the country is looking like these days -- a state of affairs he usually sees outside our borders.

Bruce Springsteen Born to Tan ... On Geffen's Super-Yacht

8/23/2017 12:38 PM PDT

Bruce Springsteen is The Boss wherever he goes ... and that especially applies when he's soaking up some sun aboard the most popular yacht in celebdom.

Bruce was seen lounging Wednesday on David Geffen's yacht off the coast of Ibiza -- with his wife, Patti Scialfa, hanging out nearby in a robe. Calvin Klein was also there with his model bf, Kevin Baker.

Bruce started out in white swim trunks, but then swapped 'em for a darker pair ... which he eventually yanked up to catch some rays on his thighs.

Whoah ohhh ... he's on fire. 

Gavin Rossdale Cops Crash House Party ... at 10 PM!!!

8/23/2017 12:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gavin Rossdale needs to find new neighbors or a new place to party because the ones he has now aren't cool with his rock 'n' roll-ISH lifestyle.

Gavin pulled the plug on his house party in the San Fernando Valley after LAPD showed up for a noise complaint. Mind you, this was no 2 AM rager -- instead, we're told the call to cops came in around 10:15 PM.

When cops showed up, we're told they spoke to Gavin, and he was totally cooperative -- dropping the typical busted teenager line ... I was just breaking it up, anyway.

Gavin, who's dating model and actress Sophia Thomalla these days, has been hard at work in the studio lately, so maybe he was just feeling a groove.

Taylor Swift Staking 'Reputation' On New Album

8/23/2017 10:26 AM PDT

Taylor Swift's taking the bad rap she's been getting, and pouring it into her "Reputation" ... the title of her new album.

Taylor just announced she's dropping her sixth album on November 10. She's been largely MIA for the past year since her fling with Tom Hiddleston went south, and her feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

The "Reputation" cover art is riddled with Taylor's name in print headlines -- a strong hint she's gonna address all the drama in her songs. She's been posting videos of a slithering snake all week ... leading people to think it has something to do with her first single, which drops Thursday.

If you recall, after Kim called Taylor out on her Kanye lie several people flooded Taylor's social media with snake emoji comments.

Based on the album cover ... looks like Taylor's doing what she does best -- making lemonade outta lemons. Even though that's Bey's thing now.

Judge to DMX I'll Let You Off House Arrest If You Get Into a Drug Program

8/23/2017 10:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DMX is off house arrest with one big catch -- he's gotta check into a treatment program to get clean ... TMZ has learned. 

A judge signed off this week on X entering an inpatient treatment program for substance abuse -- and as part of the deal, he'll be able to leave his house without wearing an ankle monitor.

According to the court docs, obtained by TMZ, all other bail conditions are in place for X while he's out on bond for his federal tax evasion case. He'll still have to get permission to travel out of New York state, but can travel to the facility without issue. It's unclear where the treatment program is located.

X's attorney, Murray Richman, tells us X entered rehab because his drug usage had become impossible to manage. 

As we first reported ... he's already requested approval to travel for some shows, but we don't know if his treatment will affect those concert dates.

Usain & D-Wade GO FULL DMX ... In Greek Nightclub

8/23/2017 7:45 AM PDT
Breaking News

They stopped. They dropped. They shut 'em down AND opened up shop. 

Usain Bolt and Dwyane Wade went all the way back to '98 at a nightclub in Greece Tuesday night -- grabbing the mic and busting out DMX's legendary "Ruff Ryders' Anthem" ... and it was AWESOME! 

D-Wade's in Mykonos for an anniversary trip -- no word on why Bolt's there -- but they met up behind the DJ booth in a Mykonos nightclub and partied like they were old friends. 

We're sure DMX woulda loved to have been there too ... if he wasn't on house arrest

John Legend You Can't Teach an Old President New Tricks

8/23/2017 6:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Legend says the ship has sailed for him when it comes to Donald Trump because, well, you know what they say about leopards.

John arrived at LAX Tuesday night and our photog wanted to know if Trump's statements about bigotry and racism have earned him a second chance. John could not be clearer -- how he says it is as significant as his words.

John clearly thinks ideology combined with age make it impossible for a man like Donald Trump to see the light.

8/23/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

14-year-old "Cash Me Outside" girl Danielle Bregoli is a rapper now -- and she's calling out broke bitches, fake bitches and jealous bitches. 

Basically, she hates all the bitches. 

TMZ obtained a snippet of her upcoming single, "These Heaux" (pronounced "Hoes") -- which contains the following lyrics: 

"These hoes be lackin', see me in back and ... they talk all this sh*t but don't say it in person." 

"Water, water drippin', come take a peek ... you in a trailer ho, bitch you can't compete."

She also brags about sippin' lean, riding in a Maybach and being able to keep a man.

By the way, she's dead serious about her rap career and even picked a rap name -- "Bhad Bhabie."

It's pronounced baby ... no offense to Barbie and her crew. 

Kesha I Doubted I Could Come Back

8/23/2017 6:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kesha chasing her own 'Rainbow' paid off ... her album of the same name debuted at number one on the charts this week and no one is more surprised than her.

We got her at LAX Tuesday where she says she was riddled with doubt she could ever top the charts again. She was talkative at first, but even hearing the name "Dr. Luke" was like a bucket of cold water.

As for Dr. Luke ... well, if she's expecting a big "Congrats!" .... she shouldn't hold her breath.

The Village People Add Hot Asian Construction Worker In a Revamped Lineup

8/23/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Village People's OG lineup of costumed characters was gettin' a little long in the tooth ... so they added a young man to the lineup ... and he's Asian.

VP is unveiling its latest addition to the "YMCA" crew -- a new construction worker named James Qwong, a 6'2" Chinese model/actor ... and the first Asian man in the Village People.

Lead singer Victor Willis -- who recently returned to the group after a legal battle for song rights -- felt the touring group looked worn and tired ... so he wanted a fresh, hot bod on the front lines. 

Hard to tell he's Asian from the ginormous sunglasses. Still ... talk about a macho man, huh?

Migos' Quavo I Got Plans For A New National Anthem

8/23/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Migos rapper Quavo doesn't want to tamper with the OG national anthem, he's got bigger plans for one.

There's a petition going around to have Quavo ad lib on the 'Star-Spangled Banner' track. 7,600 people are already on board.

We got Quavo at LAX Tuesday, and he thinks the song that's impossible to sing needs some serious updating with new messaging ... he thinks the point should be unity and equality. 

FUN FACT -- Francis Scott Key wrote "The Star-Spangled Banner" in 1814 after he saw an American flag standing after The Battle of Baltimore. 

Mystikal All Smiles for Rape Case Surrender ... 'Pray for Me'

8/22/2017 12:45 PM PDT

Mystikal was chatty and nonchalant as cameras followed him into a sheriff's station to turn himself in on a rape charge.

KSLA News 12 Shreveport, Louisiana News Weather & Sports

As we reported ... the rapper turned himself in Monday to the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Department where he was booked for 1 count of first degree rape.

Check it out ... judging from his casual demeanor, Mystikal makes it seem as if this is all just one gigantic misunderstanding. He had been wanted by cops but they were unable to track him down until now. He's being held on a $2 million bond.

Another man was also charged in connection to the crime. A woman is wanted for accessory to rape but she says it's all bogus.
