Miles Teller

Gets Footloose at Music Fest ...

Dancing with Himself

6/2/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Miles Teller felt the tempo and neither rushed nor dragged his feet while showing off his moves at BottleRock Napa Valley music festival.

The "Whiplash" and "Footloose" star caught Brett Dennen’s set on Sunday, and tore up the field … even taking his dance moves to the beer line during the singer's funky “Must Be Losing My Mind." 

Teller was having a blast ... several fans tweeted about him, including this gem ... “I met a drunk Miles Teller and it's probably the best thing ever.”

No. The best thing ever is Teller's dancing … just watch. We give the t-shirt toss-and-catch a '10.'

Jimi Hendrix

Excuse Me, While I Sue This Guy

... Over Legendary Guitar

6/1/2015 6:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_jimi_hendrix_black_widow_gettyOne of Jimi Hendrix's fabled axes was allegedly stolen by a guy who's now trying to cash in by selling the guitar -- but the money men behind Jimi's estate are gunning to shut down the sale.

The battle is over an Acoustic Black Widow guitar ... which went to Jimi's dad when Hendrix died in 1970. Then in 1995 ... pops gave it Experience Hendrix, LLC -- Jimi's licensing and merchandising company. Experience Hendrix believed the guitar was in its possession until June 2014.

That's when, according to a lawsuit filed by Experience Hendrix, Julien's Auctions contacted the company to authenticate a Black Widow that Brian Patterson was attempting to sell as a Hendrix treasure. Hendrix attorneys say Patterson got the guitar from a guy who somehow got it after divorcing Janie Hendrix ... Jimi's sister.

The Hendrix co. says its the rightful owner ... and is demanding Patterson hand over the guitar immediately, and fork over at least $750k in damages.

Or as Jimi might put it -- Hey Brian ... where you goin' with that guitar in your hand?

From a Surgeon!

That drone accident jacked up Enrique Iglesias' hand so badly he has to get reconstructive surgery.

Enrique's fingers got sliced during Saturday night's concert in Tijuana when he grabbed a drone flying above the stage. Even though the singer was able to finish the show -- bloody and bandaged ... the damage was severe.

His rep told the AP ... Enrique was having surgery in L.A. on Monday to repair his right hand.

His world tour will resume July 3rd in Mexico City, where we're guessing drones will be strictly prohibido.

Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin

Date Night Cover-up …

Thanks Bono!

6/1/2015 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601-jennifer-lawrence-chris-martin-bono-SPLASH-01Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are still going strong, but if you want to get through to them, you’re going to have to get through Bono first.

The couple hitched a ride with U2's frontman after they went to the band's concert Sunday (Bloody Sunday) night in L.A. They all hopped in the same ride to the after-party at Chateau Marmont -- and Bono felt the need to play white knight ... shielding J-Mart from cameras.

Shhhh!! No one tell Bono he's a little late with the cover-up -- everyone already knows Chris and Jennifer are dating.

It's been kind of a thing for months now.

Prince Jackson

Grandma & Grandpa

Reunite for Graduation Party

EXCLUSIVE

0601_prince_jackson_graduation_party_launchJoe and Katherine Jackson don't get together often, but they put aside their differences to celebrate Michael Jackson's firstborn graduating from high school. 

According to our sources, the family shindig for Prince Jackson went down Saturday afternoon at Joe's house in Encino. We're told it was a small gathering -- about 35 people or so -- with Prince's aunts, uncles and cousins making up most of the crowd.  

The party was catered, but just typical party food ... nothing too fancy ... especially considering how filthy rich the guest of honor is. Uncle Jackie and Grandpa Joe made speeches, along with Prince. 

Prince graduated Saturday from the exclusive Buckley School -- and says he's going to LMU School of Film and Television ... following in the footsteps of other celeb kids Colin Hanks and Scott Eastwood

Bonus fun facts: Carson Daly AND Gilligan (Bob Denver) went to LMU too!

Lil Wayne

Brawls with Ref Over Bad Calls

... In CHARITY Hoops Game

6/1/2015 7:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Lil Wayne got so furious at a referee ... in a charity basketball game ... he charged at the guy, allegedly SPIT on him -- and sparked a bench-clearing fight at a "stop the violence" event!

The brawl went down in St. Louis on Sunday night. Wayne's Young Money team was taking on a team coached by the event promoter, Loose Cannon Slim -- and we're told Coach Weezy thought the ref was blowing a bunch of calls.

In the video, Wayne is running after the ref with his whole crew behind him -- and the ref is wisely retreating into the crowd. Witnesses claim Wayne had already spit on the ref at this point.

TMZ has learned someone called police to report an assault, and although cops responded ... no one was arrested.

Again  ... this was all so a guy named Loose Cannon could promote NON-violence.


Backstreet Boys

Baptized and Muddy in Israel

EXCLUSIVE

Two Backstreet Boys had an emotionally charged experience in the Holy Land of Israel by taking a plunge into a river made famous by Jesus himself.

Howie Dorough and Brian Littrell, along with his wife Leighanne Littrell, all took a blessed bath in the Jordan River as part of a baptism ceremony.

You see Brian in the video break down during the ritual.

The band is on tour in Israel where they took a break for a mud bath in the Dead Sea with wine in hand.

Check out the gallery for all the holy happenings in underground Christian corridors and King Herod’s royal thrones … but not the type of throne you think.

Enrique Iglesias

Badly Hurt in Drone Accident

During Concert

5/31/2015 12:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0531-enrique-iglesias-cut-hand-AP-01Enrique Iglesias was seriously injured when he grabbed a drone that was buzzing during his concert.

It happened Saturday night in Tijuana, where Enrique was performing to a crowd of 12,000.  The drone is part of the concert.  He sometimes grabs it as it flies around, showing the audience his POV.

But this time he grabbed the wrong part, and the drone sliced into his hand.  He went to the side of the stage for help, and he was advised to pull the plug on the concert and get immediate medical attention. But Enrique went on for 30 minutes, with a blood-soaked t-shirt.

The singer was rushed to the airport where an ambulance was waiting to give him first aid.  He then flew to L.A. to meet with a specialist.

Brave new world.

Jay Z criticized the African American community for not supporting his company -- which is why he's getting backlash for the office photo from Tidal's HQ, where everyone is white ... except Jay and Beyonce.

The whiteout kinda makes sense though ... considering Tidal's set up shop in Norway!tmz-on-tv-3

Chris Brown

Baby Mama Nixed

Fab Disney World Birthday for Royalty

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown offered to fly his daughter Royalty and the kid's mom to the happiest place for her first birthday, but his baby mama shut down the offer.

Brown's rep tells TMZ,  it's true he was a no show for Royalty's 1st birthday, but it's because he was shooting a music video in Miami. The rep says, "Like any working parent, Chris is doing his best to prioritize the needs of his daughter." 

But Chris had a plan ... flying "the entire family" to Disney World. It's unclear if that included King Ba, Nia Guzman's BF who has been trying to assume the role of Dad. But Chris insists Nia turned him down flat.

Nia's pissed that Chris didn't show for the shindig at Chuck E. Cheese's in Houston, but Chris says he'll throw a special party for Royalty the next time he sees her.

Celebrities ... they're just like us.

Justin Bieber

I Don't Do Weddings

... For Any Price

5/30/2015 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber is either true to his art or flush with cash, because he will not turn into a wedding singer under any circumstances.

Justin was leaving Mastro's in Bev Hills Friday night, when our photog asked about possible wedding gigs.  Justin was clear ... no way, no how.

Fact is ... the way the record biz is going, it's a good way to make a fast buck.  Jennifer Lopez performed a wedding a few years back for an oil tycoon and pocketed a cool mil.   Nick Jonas got $100K for singing 3 songs at a Bat Mitzvah.

Justin will, on the other hand, sing for free when a dude proposes to his girl at a mall.

'Beavis & Butt-Head' Rapper

It's Still So Damn Cold in the 'D'

... Remixed!!!

5/30/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

There is life after "Beavis and Butt-head" for rapper T-Baby, who blew up when the show roasted her song, “It’s So Cold In The D” -- and now she’s making her return with an official remix.

No lie, the re-up version – shot in Detroit’s rough East Side -- is just as ghetto fab as the original 2006 salute to life in the Motor City ... although the mix is smoother and T-Baby's wardrobe got an upgrade. Is that lynx or rabbit?

T-Baby says the new banger is for all her haters. Plus, it’s still really cold in the D.

R.I.P. Beavis and Butt-head, who are no longer available to review the remix -- but we're confident they would've called it ... uh huh huh huh… cool.

Chris Brown

Move Over Blue & North ...

Royalty Is A-List Too, Baby

5/29/2015 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0529-chris-brown-royalty-blue-ivy-north-west-INSTAGRAM-01Chris Brown just threw down a hip-hop papa challenge -- essentially putting Jay Z and Kanye West on notice ... that his baby girl is gunning for their daughters in the cute department.

It might seem like an odd way to mark Royalty's first birthday, but proud daddy Brown posted a 3-way split of Blue Ivy, North and his daughter. 

Worth noting -- Chris put Royalty in the key center slot.

So, is he saying these are the cutest celeb babies out there? Or Royalty is THE cutest of them all?

By the way, Chris deleted the original post ... and added Wiz Khalifa's son Sebastian, and Tyga's son King -- so we're guessing this was just a big daddy shout out.
