10/28/2016 5:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mariah Carey showed James Packer who's boss Thursday night by chowing down with the guy who made her ex-fiance crazy.

Mariah sushied out at Nobu in Malibu with Bryan Tanaka, the backup dancer who got super flirty with her ... so much so Packer had it out with him in Mariah's dressing room and then got Tanaka banned from Caesar's Palace, where MC performs.

As we reported ... Mariah and James had a nuclear breakup ... she claims after he did something terrible to her assistant last month on a yacht in Greece.

Sia 'Naked and Afraid' Star Horsing Around for 'Cheap Thrills'

10/27/2016 9:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sia and Halloween make grown men and mini horses do weird things.  

"Naked and Afraid XL" star Jake Nodar recreated Sia's "Cheap Thrills" video with his 6-year-old stallion, Tyrion, after seeing her in concert inspired him to dress up as one of Sia's dancers for Halloween.

Jake, who's a horse trainer by day, admits Tyrion is a bit of an attention whore ... and sure enough he busted out some killer dance moves in the vid. It's debatable which of them has better bangs.

Sia's a huge animal lover so we're guessing she'll love this kinda horseplay.


Donald Trump Get Real, Haters ... Hillary WEnt MIA for Adele

10/27/2016 6:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump came on strong Thursday calling George Stephanopoulos a hater who is so blinded by his former bosses he doesn't see his own hypocrisy. 

The 'GMA' host asked Trump about taking time off the campaign trail Wednesday to open his new Washington D.C. hotel. Trump bristled, saying how insane it was to be asked such a question when the media cooed that Hillary took Tuesday night off to see an Adele concert.

Trump also made it clear ... the hotel's grand opening was actually political, in the sense he brought the project in on time and under budget ... something that generally doesn't happen in other buildings on Pennsylvania Ave.

10/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026_drake_taylor_swift_tmzDrake gave Taylor Swift the VIP treatment at his 30th birthday bash, including some QT with his mom -- normally an early sign of dating -- but that's not the case ... this time.

Sources connected to Drake tell us he introduced Swift to his mom and several of his homies during the Sunday night party in WeHo. TayTay's not a regular at Drizzy's legendary parties ... which is why he wanted to make sure she met his inner circle, including Mom. After all, she's arguably the biggest female music star on the planet.

1026_Drake_taylor_swift_2013_vma_gettyOf course, the special care sparked all sorts of post-party reports Drake and Taylor were getting hot and heavy at the event -- and we're told they are close, but only friends. They have been for years, in fact, they hung out at the 2013 VMAs.

So, no banging here ... we're told. Besides, that's RiRi's job.

The rapper was found guilty of battery in the 2015 incident during a Florida club gig. The judge sentenced him to 180 days in Polk County Jail, and he was immediately taken into custody.

You gotta hear Taylor recount the chilling moments.



Coolio Pleads Guilty to Gun Possession ... But Judge Digs His 'Do

10/26/2016 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Coolio pled guilty to possession of a concealed weapon but will avoid jail time ... TMZ has learned.

The rapper was in an L.A. court Wednesday where he was placed on 3 year probation and ordered to 45 days of community service. He must remain on his best behavior -- which includes not using or carrying a gun. If he does that for a year, the charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor.

TMZ broke the story ... Coolio was yanked off a plane back in September after TSA found the gun in a book bag ... one of his crew members tried to take the fall, but cops searched the bag and it wasn't hard to determine it was the rapper's.

But it wasn't all bad news in court ... before ending his hearing, the judge turned to the rapper and told him, "You've got a different little hair style ... it suits you."

Justin Bieber SUV Convoy in Erratic, Wrong-Way Driving Escapade

10/26/2016 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber and his crew swerved into oncoming traffic in England Tuesday night, and cops are now on the case.

We're told Bieber was part of a 3-car convoy in the Frodsham area of Cheshire when the incident went down. The video doesn't tell the full story, but it shows what appears to be Bieber's SUV pulling to the right side ... which in England is the wrong side.

The SUVs were racing through the streets and swerving in and out of traffic to pass up slower drivers.

Justin is renting a mansion in Cheshire during his "Purpose" tour in the UK. 

An official for the Cheshire Police Department tells TMZ ... they're aware of the footage. They believe Justin was not driving any of the vehicles. The official says, since Justin was a passenger, it's unlikely he'll face any punishment.

Michael Buble I Don't Sing On Command, Bro! Unless You Ask Nicely

10/26/2016 7:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Bublé ain't gonna play that "Dance, monkey!" game just to promote his new album -- the man's got some dignity, damn it! Or not.

You gotta love Bublé in this clip 'cause the guy very smoothly earned the Best Shameless Plug award. Yes, he's pushing his new record, "Nobody But Me" ... but at least he makes ya laugh while he's doing it.

He even turned Eminem's "Lose Yourself" into a swinging little diddy, and -- brace yourself -- dropped a few f-bombs!

Oh yeah ... the Bubes curses.

Jay Z Bid to Buy Prince's Unreleased Music

10/26/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1025-jay-z-maurice-tmzJay Z tried to snap up all the unreleased Prince music that was unearthed at Paisley Park after the singer's death ... TMZ has learned.

We've learned Jay met with Prince's sister, Tyka, and her husband, Maurice Phillips, several weeks ago. The mogul flew Tyka and Maurice to NYC to meet with him.

Sources close to Prince's family tell us ... Jay made an offer of around $40 million. We were unable to confirm the figure from Jay's camp.

But there was a rub. Tyka may be Prince's only full sibling, but she has to get sign-off from all the brothers and sisters, in addition to the trust that is managing the estate.

Word is that JZ is still in the running to get the overall deal for streaming rights ... but it will be very expensive and there are some major players in the game.

Gaga was visiting Central Park's Strawberry Fields with a film crew Monday afternoon when she saw a just married Japanese couple nearby. Check out what happens when Gaga goes in for a congratulatory hug ... priceless.

After telling the couple, "I love you," in her best Japanese -- we're told her pronunciation was close enough -- Gaga appropriately quoted John Lennon ... then made a spontaneous and risky exit.
