4/28/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay Z have learned the hard way it's hard to find a dream home when you're on a budget, even if the budget is $80 MILLION!!!

Bey and Jay have been looking at homes in L.A. for several years, but they've come up empty. Multiple real estate sources tell us, the couple has been pretty firm they don't want to pay more than $80 mil, but they have looked at homes above their price range.

They looked at a Bel Air home for $135 million about a month ago, but our sources say they are NOT buying that house.

There are a few homes they're currently eyeing, but so far they haven't written an offer.

So, you ask, how can you have an $80 million budget and not get your dream house? Well, if you want the best of the best in the City of Angels, you just have to go higher. Check out the gallery.

Exclusive Details

Cool moment from Snoop ... when he sent a personal, emotional video message to his former youth football player, John Ross -- praising him on getting drafted in the NFL.

Ross famously played in the Snoop Youth Football League as a kid -- and his family has been tight with Snoop ever since.

So, when Ross got drafted in the 1st round by the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, Snoop dug deep into his memory bank to deliver a pretty sweet message to the WR.

By the way, we got Ross right after the draft -- and he told us Coach Snoop can definitely expect some Bengals gear in the mail!

J Lo THE Dress Wins Everything At Billboard Latin Awards

4/28/2017 7:22 AM PDT

Jennifer Lopez dominated the Billboard Latin Music Awards -- before singing a single note -- by showing up in a black dress that showed almost everything.

Easy to see why her wardrobe selection is all the buzz after Thursday night's ceremony in Miami -- and like a true diva, Jenny changed outfits during the show. The silver option was a WINNER too.

She ain't stupid. J Lo remembers (so do we) how famously the "less is more" formula worked for her 17 years ago.

Bottom line? It ain't broke ...

Ja Rule's Fyre Festival Promises of Luxury Delivers Refugee Camp Digs

4/28/2017 7:03 AM PDT

7:20 AM PT -- The party's officially over.

Festival organizers just announced ... "Due to circumstances beyond our control, we must postpone this experience. We are working tirelessly to ensure each guest leaves the island safely and ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation as we continue to provide ongoing updates via email and our official social media channels."

They added ... refund information will be coming.Ja Rule's Fyre Festival promised luxury but delivered what looks like a refugee camp. 

The festival -- the first annual -- kicked off Thursday in the Bahamas, but it's a disaster of epic proportions. Ticket holders paid between $1k and $12k, and what they got was unreal.

-- Living accommodations were used in previous disaster relief efforts

-- The beer stands were empty and the "gourmet food" turned out to be 2 pieces of bread and 2 pieces of cheese

-- The kitchen looks like what you would get when you're camping in the wilderness

-- Security lockers had no locks

Fyre's video pimping the festival showcased Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Emily Ratajkowski on a yacht as a way to lure fans to a luxurious paradise. Not exactly as advertised.

Blink 182 pulled out Thursday ... saying they're "not confident that we would have what we need to give you the quality of performances we always give fans."

Pretty clear Ja Rule didn't see this coming -- he posted a pic 2 days ago just before boarding a private jet headed for the festival.

Fyre released a statement, acknowledging "things got off to an unexpected start at day one."  

Nicely understated.

Justin Bieber Tickled Pink, Grilled Too

4/28/2017 12:30 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

You're not seeing pink elephants ... that's just Justin Bieber's new grill.

Sources close to JB tell us he recently bought himself a new pink sapphire grill ... which ran him somewhere in the ballpark of $15k.

The mouthpiece comes courtesy of Gold Teeth God -- a jeweler based out of L.A. -- who we're told Justin flew out to Miami last week to do an impression of his chompers.

The grill is a combo of pink sapphire and rose gold, with 6 teeth covered on top and another 6 on the bottom. It comes with 6 carats of sapphire ... and took about 5 days to make.

We're told Justin has bought jewelry from GTG before, so going to him for the grill was a no-brainer. He seems to dig it, too.

All we can say ... love your grill, Biebs.

@justinbieber Rose gold 6x6 light pink sapphires ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Jefferson Starship Ex-Guitarist Sues ... Is This Gonna Stop Them Now?

4/28/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The former lead guitarist of Jefferson Starship is furious at other members for jacking the name and tarnishing the rock band's legacy ... according to a new suit.

Craig Chaquico claims 2 of this former bandmates and several other musicians are using the Jefferson Starship name, without permission, to land gigs and sell merch. Chaquico says the founding JS members all agreed to retire the name in 1985 ... and move on simply as Starship.

But according to docs ... David Freiberg and Donny Baldwin have assumed the Jefferson Starship name with a ragtag group who have no connection to the OG rockers. 

Chaquico says he did give another founding member, Paul Kantner, the right to use the name for shows, and he did while touring with Freiberg and Baldwin. However, Paul died in 2016, and Craig says the right to use JS died with him.

Chaquico wants Freiberg and Baldwin cut off from the name immediately.

FYI, Jefferson Starship -- or whatever name they end up with -- has concerts next month in Minnesota and California. Who knew??

Rita Ora See-Thru Top Is Doorman Approved

4/27/2017 5:57 PM PDT

Rita Ora made a cool exit from her hotel ... and put a look of sheer delight on the doorman's face.

The singer and actress left her hotel in NYC on Thursday rocking a slick all-black suit with a musical note on her jacket, and -- most importantly -- a see-though leotard underneath.

And just to reinforce what you've already seen ... no bra. Rita didn't seem to mind the extra exposure her outfit brought on the streets of the Big Apple.

Neither do we.

John Legend Running for Office? I'm Not That Guy!

4/27/2017 4:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Legend will talk politics anytime you want, but do NOT talk to him about getting into politics!

The singer, and frequent political activist, flew back into L.A. on Thursday, and we asked if he's ready to do more than dabble in the political world. Fact is, John's been one of the most vocal opponents of everything President Trump has done ... so we wondered if that was motivating him to run for office.

His answer is direct and to the point. In other words ... totally not like a politician.

In other news ... he's happy to talk poop emojis!

Justin Bieber Table for One

4/27/2017 2:20 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There's an old saying, "No man is an island," but Justin Bieber may have disproved that Thursday during a solo lunch in bustling Bev Hills.

The Biebs was dining alone at Georgie, a restaurant attached to the Montage hotel. He was chillin' with the help of his laptop, oblivious to the ladies who were lunching around him and no doubt noticing someone famous was in their midst.

Earlier this week, the Biebs enjoyed the company of friends while dancing to Kendrick Lamar in a luxury box at the Clippers game.

Katy Perry Blasted for Collab with Migos Over Homophobic Remarks

4/27/2017 12:45 PM PDT

Katy Perry's getting slammed for her new single before anyone's even heard it, because people aren't cool with her co-stars on the track -- Migos.

Perry's new song, "Bon Appetit," will be released Friday, but the backlash has already begun when the cover art revealed she collaborated with the rappers. Fans are pissed because they've made homophobic and misogynistic remarks ... notably, when an ATL rapper came out as gay, Quavo said, "This world is not right."

Now, Perry's getting heat  ... especially after accepting a National Equality Award last month at the Human Rights Campaign gala.

This isn't a first for the pop singer ... she's also been criticized by the LGBT community for her songs "I Kissed a Girl" and "Ur So Gay."

We reached out to Katy's people ... so far no word back.

Janet Jackson Mommy's Night Out ... Takes Randy to See Bruno Mars

4/27/2017 10:05 AM PDT

Janet Jackson took a break from baby duty to treat one of her older brothers to a Bruno Mars concert.

Janet and Randy Jackson were spotted at the show earlier this week in Birmingham, England. Janet tried to keep a low profile with a ball cap pulled down low -- of course, the giant bodyguard standing over her was a little conspicuous.

One concertgoer said Janet wasn't dancing around much, but still seemed to be enjoying the music.

It's interesting, because her life is kinda drama-filled right now: divorcing Wissam Al Mana, raising 3-month-old Eissa, not to mention her mother Katherine Jackson's recent legal ordeal.

Everyone needs a night off. We meant Janet ... not Randy.

Justin Bieber Sorry, Kendrick ... I Won't Sit Down to be 'HUMBLE.'

4/27/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber's dance moves are about to go viral -- dude was GIGGIN' hard to Kendrick Lamar's new single at an NBA playoff game ... awkwardness be damned.

The Biebs had box seats for Game 5 of the Clippers/Jazz series in L.A. Tuesday night, and was inspired to get up and dance when he heard Kendrick's song, "HUMBLE."

Some ticket holders got an up close and personal show of JB doing his thing ... especially the guy next to him. Too close, maybe.

Kendrick was in the house, and had the honor of sitting courtside. Key word ... sitting. No one knows his music better than K-Dot.

EXCLUSIVE

Dave Grohl is super proud of his mom's new book about raising him ... but when it comes to describing the kind of kid Dave was growing up ... well, he stepped in and ended that conversation! 

We got Dave and his mother, Virginia, in NYC Wednesday -- where she kicked off her tour for her new book, "From Cradle to Stage: Stories From the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars," on 'The Late Show.'

The book sounds interesting ... Virginia interviews the mothers of Dr. Dre, Amy Winehouse, Adam Levine and others ... chronicling trajectories to fame.
