Exclusive Details

Anthony Anderson should have a major advantage over Stevie Wonder when it comes to shooting hoops ... but throw in a blindfold and all bets are off.

They were both at a charity basketball tourney Sunday in L.A. ... when Anthony challenged Stevie to an impromptu free throw contest. AA put a blindfold on to level the playing field, and yeah -- it went about as well as you'd expect.

Check out the crowd of more than 500 people showing love for Stevie. We can't really say either guy won, but one of them did get closer to the hoop.

Anthony's gonna have a hard time living this one down.

8/29/2016 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0829-taylor-swift-TMZ-03Taylor Swift was just dismissed as a prospective juror in an aggravated rape/kidnapping case because she told the judge she has a pending civil case that also involves sexual assault.

Taylor was being questioned about possible bias in a case involving a man who allegedly penetrated a woman with a broom handle after holding her at bay. 

The singer told the judge she has a case in Colorado in which a DJ allegedly fondled her backstage during a concert, so the judge didn't think she could be impartial.

Taylor was dismissed from the jury panel for cause.

Update_Graphic_Bar_Grey_Gray

Taylor Swift had more important things to do than the VMAs -- like jury duty.

We're told she's one of 30 potential jurors for a criminal case. Jury selection started Monday morning, and she hasn't been selected. Yet.

Word is most people in the pool were suddenly excited about having to serve.

Jury duty ... Taylor makes it look fun.

Desiigner I Can't Talk About Teyana Underboob Well, I Shouldn't ...

8/29/2016 8:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

After Desiigner enjoyed his first VMA there was one thing on his mind, like all of us -- Teyana Taylor's ridiculously hot body in Kanye's "Fade" music vid, but his problem is ... he can't talk about it.

We got the Best New Artist nominee leaving the after-party at Up & Down in NYC, and he told us -- as only Desiigner could -- why he's worried about discussing Iman Shumpert's girl.

This clip is hysterical because, of course, he still couldn't resist rating TT's body at work. He's only human.

UFC's Nate Diaz Parties with Snoop AND BIGGEST JOINT EVER!

8/29/2016 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

The Diaz brothers were playing with fire Sunday night -- hanging backstage at a Snoop concert ... with Nate holding (what appears to be) one of the BIGGEST JOINTS EVER!

0829-nate-diaz-fat-joint-SNAPCHAT-01Nate Diaz and Nick Diaz made the 40 mile trek from Stockton to Concord, CA for Snoop's show -- where they also kicked it with Kurupt and famed Bay Area rapper Berner

No word if Nate actually smoked the joint -- or if it actually contained marijuana -- but it's a troubling image considering Nick was just reinstated following an 18 month ban after testing positive for weed. 

Hey, maybe it's just a prop ... right???

Justin Bieber skipped the VMAs Sunday but still managed to give a killer performance ... singing karaoke at his local L.A. bar that put all the bad singers in the joint to shame.

Justin picked one of the hardest songs in the books -- Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls of Fire" and slayed.

He's got a chronic problem -- letting go of the mic wherever he goes -- but it's usually awesome. Thing is ... he kinda shamed the bad singers who populate karaoke bars.

Fat Joe I'd Give $5 Mil For A Knicks Championship ... Really

8/28/2016 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sorry, Spike ... hip-hop star Fat Joe is officially the biggest freakin' Knicks fan in the world ... 'cause he says he'd give up FIVE MILLION DOLLARS if it meant his squad could take home the Larry O'Brien. 

We got Joe out in NYC and posed a very simple, very easy question of choice to the rap legend ... would he rather have the Knicks win a championship ... or be handed $5 million in cold hard cash?

Joe doesn't even hesitate ... dissing the cash (FYI, he's already maaaaaad rich) and taking the title, thus proving how much an NBA championship actually means ... no matter what 'Melo says.
