Travis Barker Breastfeeding Area at My Music Fest ... So Punk Rock!

4/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker doesn't think there should be an age limit for rocking out, so he's throwing what could possibly be the most kid-friendly music festival ever, complete with a breastfeeding area for new moms.

Barker's Back to the Beach Fest is going down next weekend in Huntington State Beach in Southern California. Headliners include 311, Sublime With Rome, as well as the original Fishbone lineup, Barker playing with Goldfinger and loads more.

Kids under 10 get in free, which isn't unusual for music festivals, but BTTB doesn't want to exclude anyone, so they're setting up a special quiet zone for nursing moms.

That's not all ... there will also be a Lil Punk Zone where kids can rock out safely. We're told Barker got the inspiration from taking his own kids on the road everywhere and wanted other families to see what it's like to rock out with their little ones. All those diapers should also keep the porta potty lines down, too.

Justin Bieber Sucks At Soccer ... Says Ex-Team USA Coach

4/22/2018 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Everyone who thinks Justin Bieber's soccer skills are legit have been living a damn lie ... because former USA coach Bruce Arena says the Biebs just ain't got it. 

We got Arena out at LAX and wanted to know what an expert (even though we missed the World Cup, he's an expert) thought about Bieber's prowess on the pitch.

Our guy showed Arena some video -- then asked if he thought Biebs was any good at soccer. Unfortunately for Justin, the old coach kept it 100%, A-1, 24 carat real.

"I don't think that. I think he's better off doing what he's doing."

Don't be mad at us Justin ... we tried to remind Bruce that you're friends with Neymar and asked if you could maybe make the MLS if Neymar helped -- but Arena had a simple answer to that too.

"No."

It's not too late to say you're sorry Bruce ... TO ALL AMERICANS FOR MISSING THE FREAKIN' WORLD CUP!

'The Four' Star Zhavia I Lost The Show ... But, I'll Still Make Millions!!

4/22/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Zhavia Ward is going to be the next big thing -- at least that's what her new record company is banking -- cuz they just signed her to a potentially multi-million dollar deal.

The 17-year-old fan favorite of 'The Four' didn't win FOX's singing competition, but it's all good ... Sony's Columbia Records scooped her up instead.

According to her contract -- obtained by TMZ -- Zhavia gets a $700k advance on her first album ... along with 18% royalties. If the record's a hit as expected, she'll get another $750k for album #2 ... and haul in up to $1.875 mil with royalties.

Zhavia's 3rd and 4th albums guarantee her another $100k raise each ... with the potential to make well over $2 million per album with royalties.

Not too shabby for a teenager who didn't win -- or even finish as the runner-up -- on 'The Four.'

EXCLUSIVE

Belly was the recipient of several flying fists from security guards during The Weeknd's performance at Coachella ... even though the rapper performed at the fest earlier in the night.

Belly -- who actually has a hit song with The Weeknd -- was in a line of people walking from the sound booth to the VIP area near the main stage while The Weeknd was singing "The Hills" ... according to witnesses.

For whatever reason, about 10 men who appear to be Coachella security staff start PUMMELING Belly ... and don't let up for several seconds. The video's wild.

Belly isn't letting it get him down, though. He just tweeted, "No negative bulls**t can steal my joy" and added earlier ... "I'm great y'all. I love you." He also got a shot in at the guards who went after him, saying ... "20 of you p***ies couldn't take me off my feet."

We're told police were not involved in the incident -- by the time they showed up everyone had dispersed and no report was taken.

We reached out to Belly and Coachella organizers about the fracas ... so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Avicii was hanging on a yacht and sipping a drink the day before his death ... and appeared to be happy and healthy.

In the photo -- obtained by TMZ -- the world-famous DJ is chilling with a couple guys on a boat while flashing a peace sign. We're told it was taken Thursday in Muscat, Oman ... where he was staying nearby at the Muscat Hills Resort.

Avicii has a drink in his hand, but it's unclear if it's alcoholic or not. Avicii said in a 2013 interview he stopped drinking due to pancreatitis and was living a sober lifestyle.

As we reported ... Avicii was found dead Friday morning in Muscat. The resort confirmed he was a guest and said he was extremely kind during his stay and "definitely did seem to be in good spirits while enjoying his time." Photos taken with other guests at the resort seem to back that up.

Avicii's brother is currently in Oman leading the charge to find out what killed him.

Avicii Brother in Oman As Family Seeks Answers

EXCLUSIVE

11:25 AM PT -- Oman police say Avicii's body will be flown home to Sweden this week. Still no word on the cause of his death.

One of Avicii's family members is on the ground in Oman leading the charge to find out what killed the world famous DJ ... TMZ has learned.

Sources in Oman tell us Avicii's older brother, David Bergling, checked into an upscale hotel in the capital city of Muscat on Friday evening ... hours after Avicii was found dead. We're told the hotel where he's staying is about 15 minutes away from Muscat Hills -- the resort where Avicii had been vacationing.

As we showed you, the EDM superstar posed for several photos with fans at the resort, and witnesses say he appeared to be in good spirits during his time there.

According to reports in Avicii's native Sweden, he had checked out of Muscat Hills sometime last week. One of the things David is likely looking into is exactly where his brother and a small group of friends went in the days leading up to his death. 

Avicii comes from a very famous family in Sweden. His mother, Anki Liden, and another brother are both actors. David is a hotelier in Sweden.

The Norwegian DJ closed his set on the main stage Friday night with a tribute to the world-famous DJ, saying ... "Avicii was my biggest musical inspiration and he was the reason I started making electronic music so I don’t think I would’ve been on this stage tonight if it wasn’t for him. I know he’s inspired millions of other producers out there."

He then played Avicii's 2017 track, "Without You" ... which he said is his favorite.

Kanye West is looking quite comfortable these days ... and we're not just talking about his outfit.

The rapper was spotted leaving Nobu in Malibu with some friends Friday night in a t-shirt, sweatpants and a light jacket ... and couldn't look happier about the way things are going lately.

Kanye's been in a great mood for a few days. We saw him smiling leaving his office after giving Charlamagne Tha God a preview of his new album, before announcing he's actually releasing TWO albums in June ... one with Kid Cudi.

Then of course, there was his social media PDA with Kim Kardashian at a party for Kourtney's 39th bday ... something rarely seen from the couple.

EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Seacrest loves "American Idol" -- he makes that perfectly clear -- and he doesn't seem to be sweating the prospect of the show not returning next season ... ratings be damned.

We got the 'Idol' host leaving E Baldi restaurant in Beverly Hills Friday evening and asked if he's concerned at all about the revived singing competition struggling to attract viewers. Doesn't seem like it ... because he knows it's a great show.

Ryan says he hopes 'AI' returns for another season, and it should be noted -- it's still performing well for ABC compared to the same time slot in recent years.

So Seacrest is right to stay positive about things ... especially when gets to snap a pic with a "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" star, too.

EXCLUSIVE

Former Destiny's Child singer Farrah Franklin didn't join Beyonce on stage at Coachella, but she's making it clear -- she's fully on board for the next reunion ... if the queen will have her.

Farrah was a member of DC for about 6 months in 2000 -- she was on the "Say My Name" remix -- and she watched Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams onstage last weekend. Zero bitterness, though ... she says she was thrilled like everyone else.

She says she wasn't invited to be part of the Coachella gig -- and didn't really expect to be -- but she sounds keen on Bey organizing a more complete reunion in the future.

For now, Farrah's happy doing modeling, acting and her own music ... which includes a trap collab with Maino. All that being said, she'd squeeze in some time for her ex-group mates if the phone rings.

EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 just keeps throwing his money around and this time he's doing it on several pieces of bling that put a $22,500 hole in his pocket.

The NYC rapper linked with Houston-based jeweler JimmyBoi for a pair of rings and two new grills. One ring is of a spinning 69, while the other is a spinning rainbow made out of colorful enamel. There's about 15 carats of diamonds on both atop 14k gold. Grand total ... $17,500.

We're told the grills are made out of white gold and colorful enamel and cost about $5k.

As for that dent in 6ix9ine's bank account, hardly as bad as the one he might have after Saturday's Broner vs. Vargas fight. This is more like chump change.
