Waka Flocka Flame I'd Run the Smartest Day Care for Kids!

5/23/2016 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Waka Flocka Flame not only doesn't care about people ripping him over the video of his niece in a dog cage -- he insists he can teach the haters a thing or two about child care!

We got the rapper at LAX where he laughed off the wave of criticism he got after posting that video of the little girl locked in the training crate. Waka says it's well-known that all the kids in his family love him -- and, in fact, he has some ideas about how to run a day care center.

Take a look, it's not at all what you'd think. Prime case of "never judge a book" ... 

Marc Anthony Sued We Need to Know Why He Double-Dipped on Concerts

5/23/2016 2:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0523_Marc-Anthony_tmzMarc Anthony signed on to do a major concert series in Europe that was so good -- he booked it twice with 2 different promoters ... according to the one that's now suing to get back its dough. 

R&J Entertainment says it booked Marc in 2014 and 2015 to play some iconic venues in the Netherlands, Spain and England ... including Wembley Arena -- but the concerts never came to fruition. R&J says Marc backed out of the deal ... and it eventually found out why.

According to the suit, the singer had simultaneously signed a "near identical" deal with another promoter. R&J says that contract royally screwed its deal with Marc, and left them out in the cold, financially.

The promoters are suing Marc for damages suffered by pulling the plug on all those concerts.

5/23/2016 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Harrison thought Christina Applegate was so adorable, he just wanted to eat her up ... at least according to David Faustino.

Faustino claims Harrison was infatuated with Kelly Bundy back in the "Married with Children" days ... and what he allegedly said will shock every Beatles fan on earth.

David's revelation went down on Matt Weiss and Theo Von's "Allegedly" podcast.

You'll never hear "Come Together" the same way ever again.



Drake No Time for Billboard Music Awards ... I'm Golfing with the Homies

5/23/2016 11:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Drake blew off the Billboard Music Awards, even though he was in Las Vegas ... and opted instead for a few rounds of golf with his friends.

Actually, it was golf with a tech spin -- at the brand new Topgolf in Vegas. We got this video of Drake and his pal, Jas Prince, teeing off Sunday night ... just a few blocks away from T-Mobile Arena ... where the award show was going down.

It's bizarre ... Drizzy was up for 11 BMAs ... and won for Top Rap Artist -- but for some reason he obviously wasn't feeling it.

On the other hand, both guys take decent strokes -- at least in this video. Y'know how golf goes.

0523_lady_gaga_Horse_smoothie_X17Lady Gaga found a ride more eco-friendly than a Prius on her way to grab a smoothie in Malibu. 

Gaga ditched 4 wheels for her 4 legged white horse, a gift she got last Christmas from her music label, Interscope.

She's saving on gas, but the cleanup really stinks.

Now, Oakley is responding ... telling TMZ Sports, "I accept his apology. Fat Joe broke bread with Mason and I."

Lil Wayne Fires Up Weed Lovers with Anti-Birdman Rant

5/23/2016 9:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Wayne sent a not-so-friendly reminder to Birdman that they're still beefing -- and got a crowd full of his highest fans to jump on his bandwagon.

The rapper fired shots with 3 words squarely aimed at Cash Money and its honcho during Saturday's performance at Denver's 420 rally.

Although they've been chummy face-to-face lately -- Weezy continues to throw jabs at his mentor and label head. Wayne's still suing Cash Money for $51 million, and this video proves he has NO intention of backing down.

Taylor Swift, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne Terrorized by Death Threats

5/23/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-swift-delevingne-hadid-tmz-01Taylor Swift and her superstar posse are under attack from an Internet troll who's threatening to kill them ... and cops are on the hunt for the guy.

We've learned the guy has terrorized Taylor, saying, "I will kill some of you." He also targeted Gigi Hadid, tweeting, "people gon die they're gon die die die die!" And Cara Delevingne was targeted ... "I will kill your friends and I am excited about it."

Chrissy Teigen, who's not part of Taylor's posse, was also in the lunatic's crosshairs, with this ... "gonna give it one shot, but I probably gonna end up murdering your friends."  

Law enforcement sources tell us they first got the heads up about the cyber threats from director Kyle Newman, whose wife, Jaime King, was also on the receiving end of threats.

Police got a search warrant to comb through Twitter's records that could lead them to their culprit. We're told so far cops have not gotten the info they need to close in.

NeNe Leakes I'm Feelin' a Little Smokey

5/23/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NeNe Leakes is no stand-up comic ... she's also no singer, although she got the chance of a lifetime singing with his awesomeness, Smokey Robinson.

Nene hit up Johnny Gill's 50th birthday bash Sunday night at a Bel-Air mansion, where Smokey made a surprise appearance and dueted with Jeffrey Osborne. And they sang the 'Woo Woo' song no less!

Smokey and Jeffrey goaded NeNe to come up and join, but she was too shy so the mountain went to Mohammed. She sang the chorus and, well, she's great on 'Real Housewives.'

Fat Joe Sorry I Offended Charles Oakley Didn't Mean to Diss Anthony Mason

5/23/2016 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fat Joe tells TMZ Sports he WORSHIPS Anthony Mason -- and didn't mean to disrespect the late NBA star by identifying him as the victim in a legendary Biggie Smalls rap. 

You know the backstory by now ... Fat Joe outed Mason last week as the Knick who was robbed at gunpoint by Biggie in "I Got a Story to Tell." 

Mason's good friend and teammate Charles Oakley was PISSED about it, claiming Fat Joe threw unnecessary shade ... especially since Mason passed away last year. 

But this weekend at a party for Floyd Mayweather's daughter, Fat Joe apologized ... sorta ... saying: 

"I love Charles Oakley. I worship him. I worship Anthony Mason. Anyone who took it as disrespect, I'm sorry."

Well, since we know Oakley DID take it as disrespect ... you could call it an apology. 

We're reaching out to Oakley to see if he accepts.

Bad Boy Reunion Tour Hey, Puff ... Forgot About Us?!

5/23/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-puff-daddy-tour-composite-getty-05Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs ruffled feathers when he excluded some of his own label's bands from the Bad Boy Reunion Tour. 

Of course ... Mase, Busta Rhymes, Faith Evans and 112 will all be hitting the stage. However, Da Band, B5, Day 26 and Diddy Dirty Money will all be at home -- or, at best, in the audience -- and there are some hurt feelings. 

B5's Dustin Michael tells TMZ ... "We just felt like our relationship [with Diddy] was better than that." Da Band's Sara Stokes thinks they earned a spot because, "We made history with Diddy on 'Making the Band' and pretty much opened the doors for all the other reality shows."

Most of the Bad Boy alums we talked to, including Babs from Da Band, say they'll still go to the concert.

As for whether Diddy comps their tickets -- the phone's not ringing. Yet. 

Dream We're Back ... With Diapers and Wipes!!

5/23/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519-dream-getty-tmz-01Girl group Dream is reuniting for a tour, but all the bottles they'll be popping on the road have nipples. 

The late '90s/early 2000s pop band is joining 98 Degrees and Ryan Cabrera for the MY2K Tour, and the ladies will be on full mommy duty based on their rider ... which looks like a Baby Depot shopping list. 

Their backstage demands include size 3 diapers (preferably from Honest Co.), alcohol-free baby wipes, and Plum or Earth's Best brand organic baby food. Members Holly Blake-Arnstein and Melissa Schuman have 3 kids between them.

Interestingly, there's no request for nannies. We see an OT opportunity for Drew and Nick Lachey!
