Shaq Most Dominant DJ Ever Spins 1&2's At HUGE EDM Festival

7/23/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Steve Aoki, David Guetta, Afrojack and ... Shaq?

The Diesel might just be on that list of world-famous and successful DJs ... after having rocked the crowd at one of the biggest EDM festivals in the entire world.

Shaq took the stage early Friday at Tomorrowland ... a 3-day EDM bonanza in Belgium that attracts over 180,000 crazily dressed (probably unsober) partygoers a year.

We're told Shaq's set lasted about an hour ... and while his primary wheelhouse is hip-hop ... he mainly stayed true to the EDM format most of the crowd wanted to hallucinate to.

Check out the video ... it's clear the big man was totally into it, and we already know he takes his reputation as a DJ very seriously, so it's no wonder he killed it.

Careful with all that jumping, big fella .... we doubt those knees are playoff-ready at this point.

'Ghostbusters' Theme School Teachers Ain't Afraid to Rock ... Score Record Deal

7/23/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The three elementary school teachers who reworked the "Ghostbusters" theme for the new movie are about to get some green dumped on them, but it's not slime.

No Small Children -- drummer Nicola Berlinsky, singer Joanie Pimentel and her sister/guitarist Lisa -- just scored a deal with RCA for their punk rock overhaul, which plays during the film credits.

It's an amazing story ... the 3 decided to start NSC 4 years ago during recess at their North Hollywood school. Last Halloween, they dressed up as Ghostbusters and played their version of the theme song during a club gig. They decided to record it and got it to the film's composer, Teddy Shapiro, whose kid happens to be a student at their 9 to 5. 

NSC didn't think they had a shot after hearing big-name musicians were also up for the gig, but got the call ... GHOSTBUSTERS!

Check out the video ... the trio's going places, and hiring!!! But don't worry kids, they'll be back with a syllabus in the fall. 

Beyonce Pulls Race Card in 'Lemonade' Suit

7/22/2016 4:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722-beyonce-lemonade-TIDAL-01Beyonce's adamant she didn't rip off "Lemonade" from a film about a depressed white guy, and she says the proof is right there in her visual album ... about a proud black woman.

Beyonce just filed docs which call Matthew Fulks' lawsuit bogus ... because "Lemonade" and his 2014 short film "Palinoia" have completely different narratives.

In the docs obtained by TMZ, she says the differences couldn't be clearer -- "Lemonade" portrays "an African-American woman who progresses through stages of suspicion, denial, anger and, ultimately, reconciliation in her relationship."

On the other hand, she says "Palinoia" is about a "white man who is distressed in the wake of a failed relationship."

We broke the story ... Fulks sued Bey and her record label, saying much of her "Lemonade" trailer copied chunks of his film.

Ciara Future's Trash Talk Cost Me $500k

7/22/2016 3:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722-future-ciara-tmz-05Ciara got screwed out of half a million bucks thanks to Future's trash talking ... so claims the singer.

Ciara says her baby daddy's barrage of tweets and interviews disparaging her scared away an international cosmetics company she thinks would have paid her $500k ... this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ.

You'll recall ... Ciara slapped Future with a defamation lawsuit back in February after he blasted her on social media with tweets like, "This bitch got control problems ... I gotta go through lawyers to see baby future ... the f***ery for 15k a month."

Ciara says all that trash talk has undermined her "positive reputation" and sullied her as "controlling, dishonest, malicious, unreasonable, evil, conniving" and bad parent which made the cosmetic co. run for the hills.

7/22/2016 3:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722-wale-TMZ-01Wale is bowing out of his Friday night concert in Brooklyn because he just became a dad for the first time.

Drake Forks Out Thousands for Overtime Concert

EXCLUSIVE

Drake got slapped with a hefty fine for his Dallas concert going way past the allowed time -- 'cause, as they say ... money ain't a thang.

Drake performed at American Airlines Center Thursday night -- he got a late start -- and when the clock struck midnight, he was officially in overtime. TMZ has learned the arena fined him $6,500 for every 15 minutes he played past 12.

Drizzy even told the crowd he was going over, and he didn't care if he had to pay.

He ended up performing until 12:35, so the show's gonna cost Drake an extra $13k.

You're welcome, Big D.

Bobby Brown Belts Out 'My Girl' To Celebrate New Baby

7/22/2016 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bobby Brown doesn't sit around hospital rooms anymore when he has a baby -- instead he celebrates by singing with random bands in Bev Hills ... and it's actually pretty awesome.

We got this video of Bobby doing "My Girl" Thursday night at Caffe Roma ... shortly after his wife, Alicia, gave birth to their third child ... a 10 pound baby girl.

Witnesses tell us Bobby said he was driving around town, taking a breather after the birth. When he heard the band jamming, he decided to stop and join 'em.

This is Bobby's 7th kid -- but watch the performance. He's celebrating like it's his first.

Donald Trump 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' ... Really?

7/22/2016 7:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump's speech was all fire and brimstone ... loud and confident, and that made the choice of exit music more than a little perplexing.

Trump finished big Thursday night at the RNC, and as he took his bows, "You Can't Always Get What You Want" was pumped through the arena.

It's a bizarre message after a candidate lays out his platform. But it may not be a message at all. One high-level campaign source tells TMZ, it was "just a song on the playlist."  

At least it wasn't "Sympathy for the Devil." 

Donald Trump 'Here Comes the Sun' Infuriates George Harrison Estate

7/22/2016 6:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ivanka Trump was one of the stars for sure at the RNC, but putting a star next to a song about the Sun creates problems.

George Harrison's estate is furious "Here Comes the Sun" was used for Ivanka's big entrance. They say, "The unauthorized use of #HereComestheSun at the #RNCinCLE is offensive and against the wishes of the George Harrison Estate."

The statement goes on, "If it had been Beware of Darkness, then we MAY have approved it!  #TrumpYourself."

Point made.

Calvin Harris Works Out with NFL Player ... Beast In the Gym

7/22/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Calvin Harris works out like a real-life pro athlete ... so says Minnesota Vikings safety Antone Exum, who says the DJ blew him away during a Thursday gym sesh.

Exum and Harris were puttin' in work at Heart & Hustle in L.A. -- a pretty elite gym where tons of pro athletes and big stars go to get swole. 

Harris was such an animal during the workout, Exum didn't realize he wasn't a pro jock -- and when he figured out who he was, he raced after Calvin to introduce himself. 

By the way, Harris is pretty ripped -- and Taylor Swift used to post pics of his impressive physique on her social media before that whole thing crashed and burned.

Her loss, Tinashe's gain (allegedly).

French Montana I'm Going West Side ... of Manhattan

7/22/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0721-french-montana-tmz-gettyFrench Montana's ready to drop major cheddar on a new pad really close to his hometown, but far, far away in terms of real estate prices. 

Sources tell us the Bronx-raised rapper went shopping earlier this week as a first-time buyer on Manhattan's West Side. We're told John Lecce, of Batra Real Estate Group, showed him luxury high-rise condos in the $5-10 million range. 

French is considering cribs in the SoHo, Tribeca and West Village neighborhoods. 

Looks like he'll be bicoastal, since he just bought Selena Gomez's old mansion for a little more than $3 mil.

As far as when he'll pull the trigger in NYC, we're told he's in no rush and willing to wait for the right location ... location, location.

7/21/2016 1:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Iggy Azalea's not about to let any dudes swipe right (or left) on her ... not yet, anyway.

We caught up with the rapper Thursday morning at LAX and asked if she's trying her hand at online dating. You gotta see the vid for her reply, and also for her sick side-eye.

One thing Iggy does have her mind made up about -- breakfast!
