Breaks Down in Tears

During VMA Performance

Justin Bieber totally lost it during the VMA's, sobbing as he explained his life's journey in progress.

Bieber was singing his new song, "What Do you Mean," when he began musing abut the twists and turns of life ... clearly referring to his own rocky road over the last few years.

More therapeutic than Dr. Phil.

Justin Bieber's passion for fast cars got the best of him Saturday night, when he got stopped by a Beverly Hills cop ... and plenty of reinforcements.

Witnesses tell TMZ, Justin was going well over the 25 MPH speed limit in his new Ferrari when he was spotted on a residential street in Bev Hills.

After the stop, 3 other squad cars rolled up.  It's unclear why.  We're told Justin got a speeding ticket and went on his way.

He did not ask the cops, "What do you mean?"  They were clear.

Kevin Gates doesn't like to be touched when he's on stage and one female fan learned that quickly ... with a boot to the chest.

Gates was performing at a club in Lakeland, FL Friday night -- you can see a woman in the front row reach out and touch Gates' shorts ... that's when he loses it. 

It's unclear what happened to the woman after the kick but she seems to stick around. 

We've reached out to Gates for comment -- so far, no word back.

Chief Keef isn't someone to be left speechless, but one female fan did just that when she flashed the rapper during a show. 

Keef was in Orange County Thursday night when the rowdy fan stood up on a barricade. Keef tells her to be careful not to fall and she thanks him for the concern by lifting up her shirt.

Check out the video ... the rapper is so stunned he can't even start his next song.

T-Pain

Wrecks Aston Martin

... Blame It On The O-O-O-Other Driver

8/29/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826_sidebar_t-pain-car-crash-photos-launchT-Pain needs a major auto-tune-up after smashing his exotic ride in a multi-car wreck ... TMZ has learned. 

The crash happened last week in L.A. -- we're told a purple sedan was turning left at an intersection, and T-Pain ... driving in the opposite direction in his fancy Aston Martin ... went through the intersection and plowed into the sedan.

The impact was so hard it knocked a tire off the sedan and flung it back into a 3rd car at the light.

As for fault ... one witness claims T-Pain jumped the light and went into the intersection early -- but Pain's camp claims the sedan turned after the light turned red. 

We're told there were no serious injuries, and even though cops showed up ... nobody was cited.

French Montana

Summer Party Pad Up For Grabs

... For $5.3 Million

EXCLUSIVE

0828_french_montana_house_sale_launch2French Montana paid $40k to rent out a secluded LA home for the month of July, but now the owner only wants to sell so it will set you back $5.3 mil. 

The modern 6-bedroom mansion sits in the gated Los Feliz community of Laughlin Park -- where Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman have lived. The place looks like it's straight out of "Miami Vice" (the remake) ... with an ultramodern, all white, open air architecture.

There's a pool, a spa, and a home theater ... but the real selling point is the insane jetliner view of the city. 

It's also photo shoot ready ... just ask Frenchie.

The Weeknd

Viral Music Video Shoot ...

NOT Busted by Cops

8/28/2015 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

That viral vid of LAPD officers brutally shutting down The Weeknd's music video shoot Thursday night in downtown LA is nothing more than a wicked game ... of promotion.

The LAPD tells TMZ ... the video going around on social media is 100% staged.

The clip shows several cops ripping through The Weeknd's set with nightsticks, demanding permits, and shutting down all video recording.

We also know the guy who posted the clip is actually Weeknd's creative director -- and since his new album drops today ... it's a little too perfect.

The beauty behind the madness here -- pure guerrilla marketing. 

Celine Dion

I Am Back and ...

Still the Best, Bishes!

8/28/2015 6:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Celine Dion is back on the Strip -- after a year-long hiatus she returned to her Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace.

The Colosseum was sold-out for CD's first show since last summer ... when she stepped aside to take care of her ailing husband, Rene Angelil, who's been recovering from cancer.

The 47-year-old still nailed the high notes while running through hits like "Because You Loved Me" and "My Heart Will Go On." 

Celine's scheduled to do 40 shows between now and January ... for di world!

Young Buck

Judge Not that Pee-o'd

Over Fake Urine Test

8/28/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0826-young-buck-getty-02Young Buck will not be going to prison for playing dirty with his pee.

Buck was facing 5 years for trying to pass off someone else's urine as his own during a random drug test in his weapons case. He brought someone else's pee to the probation department in a plastic bag and tried to pass it off as his own ... but he got caught.

The judge showed mercy, agreeing with prosecutors that rehab was more appropriate than prison. As Bossip first reported ... Buck must complete a treatment program, 100 hours of community service and pay a $7.5k fine. 

Young Buck ... urine the judge's good graces ... for now.

Tyga

Major Withdrawal

8/27/2015 2:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-tyga-stacks-of-cash-bentley-AKMGSI-01Tyga's bank account is still stacked and he wants everyone to know it.

T-Raww walked out of a Calabasas bank Thursday afternoon with a wad of hundos and he made sure to flash it for cameras.

Doesn't look like the nearly $300k he spent on Kylie Jenner's Ferrari and the thousands in back rent he owes are slowing him down in the cash department ... he also sped off in a Bentley.

Ken Griffey Jr.

SOMETHING'S FISHY

... In New Macklemore Video

8/27/2015 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-ken-griffey-jr-youtubeSo, when Macklemore throws "fish to a player" in his brand new music video ... turns out the "player" who catches it is none other than The Kid himself, Ken Griffey Jr

Griffey has a super brief cameo is the new Macklemore video "Downtown" -- wearing his old Seattle Mariners uniform.

Of course, Macklemore's from Seattle ... loves Seattle ... and with Griffey's history with the city, it's really not THAT big of a surprise he's in the video. 

No Ichiro or Randy Johnson though? Maybe next time ...  

Jason Derulo

Major Groupie Soap Opera ...

Shut Out of the Party!

EXCLUSIVE

Not everyone gets to party with Jason Derulo -- as one pissed off groupie found out the hard way when he rolled out of the club ... 5 deep with chicks.

This is painful and yet hysterical to watch unfold ... Jason and his crew rolled out of Argyle Nightclub in Hollywood with a flock of groupies ready to party on his custom Sprinter van.

As shirtless Jason settles into his seat, it looks like a good time would be had by all. Almost.

The left out chick did not take it well or quietly, but eventually her friends did text from the van -- which only pissed her off more! Check it out.
