Justin Bieber Treat Me Like a Real Artist ... Or Else!

10/24/2016 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1024-justin-bieber-tmzJustin Bieber thinks he deserves the same respect from concertgoers that Adele gets, and if he doesn't get it there's gonna be trouble.

Justin walked out on fans during a concert Sunday in Manchester, England -- although he did come back -- and a lot of people think he's teetering on a nervous breakdown.

Our JB sources say he's doing all of this intentionally. He does not want to perform at concerts where he's drowned out by screaming fans. He feels his music and message have evolved into adult territory, and thinks if his fans get excited, it should be over his music ... not him.

We're told Bieber plans to "train" his fans into shutting up when he sings and talks onstage. He thinks if he walks offstage, they'll learn fast when to vocalize and when to shut it.

Fact is ... it kinda worked for Bieber when it came to people taking pics without asking him first. He started denying people the opportunity, and they quickly fell in line.


Drake Ripped for Kid Cudi Diss Track Calls Depression a 'Phase'

10/24/2016 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Drake just dissed Kid Cudi by making fun of his life-threatening depression ... and people are pissed. 

Drizzy dropped new music on the eve of his 30th birthday, and one of the songs -- "Two Birds, One Stone" -- clearly calls out Cudi as an angry guy who takes drugs to deal with reality.

You'll recall ... Cudi called out Drake and Kanye last month for refusing to work with him. He checked into rehab a few weeks later for depression.

Apparently turning 30 brings out Drake's worst behavior.

Justin Bieber 'It's Not Me Being An Asshole' I Just Wanna Talk, Guys!

10/24/2016 6:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber is in crisis ... he doesn't want people to treat him like a pop star anymore, but the reality is ... he is, and that triggered a meltdown onstage.

The Biebs was performing in Manchester Sunday when he threw a tantrum after his fans would not stop screaming ... he stormed offstage and threw the mic down in a rage. JB came back a few minutes later.

It seems Justin wants to shed his pop star past, especially with his new adult music. But his fan base is still very much "Boyfriend," and he clearly can't handle it.

'AGT' Winner 'I Don't Know My Name' ... But I Know I Got Sweet Bonuses

10/24/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1014-grace-vanderwaal-youtube-gettyGrace VanderWaal didn't just get $1 million for winning "America's Got Talent" ... she also nailed down an extra $100 grand, and a slew of possible bonuses.

The 12-year-old 'AGT' winner from this past summer is set to receive the $100k advance for her 1st album, and then an additional $100k if the record pushes more than 500,000 units in its first year.

According to her contract, Grace is eligible for up to 4 renewals of her deal with Simon Cowell's record label, SYCO -- and each one comes with another $100k.

She rode her original tune, "I Don't Know My Name" all the way to the 'AGT' crown, and if she's got a few more hits up her sleeve ... the kid's set for life.

Janis Joplin $100k Good Enough For 'Bobby McGee' Guitar

10/24/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020_Janis-Joplin_guitar_Heritage-AuctionsThe six string Janis Joplin used to record her signature song is expected to go for six figures on the auction block.

It's a 1969 Gibson Hummingbird acoustic and Janis played it while recording "Me and Bobby McGee." After Janis died in 1970, it was given to her old bandmate, Sam Andrew. Andrew died last year, and now his wife is auctioning it off through Heritage Auctions.

Heritage says the guitar is a big deal because Janis memorabilia is very hard to come by ... hence the $100,000 price tag, at least.

Don't worry ... for that kinda money you get some extras ... like the doily Janis used to clean the guitar. Doilies, nothing screams rock 'n' roll like legendary doilies.

The auction runs through November 12.

10/23/2016 6:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Scottie Pippen butchered "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" in fantastic style Saturday night during the Cubs game.

Not for the faint of heart.

DJ Khaled welcomed his son into the world Sunday morning along with anyone else who wanted to watch.

Khaled's "Major Key" album was blaring in the delivery room as fiancee, Nicole Tuck, pushed her son out.

Obama Jams Out to 'Hotline Bling' What Happened to Kendrick?!!

10/23/2016 7:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Prez Obama SAYS Kendrick Lamar would kick Drake's ass in a rap battle, but our leader showed some serious Canadian love Saturday night at The White House.

Obama co-hosted "Love & Happiness:  A Musical Experience"  with BET.

A paparazzo was in place at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave to record the whole thing ... Usher.

Who knew being President could be so much fun.

Ice Cube RAIDER NATION FOR LIFE ... Even In Vegas??

10/23/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He's one of the biggest Raider fans on the planet -- but if the Silver & Black move straight outta Cali and into Las Vegas, is that a deal breaker for Ice Cube???

That's what we asked the rapper at LAX -- you know, since Raiders owner Mark Davis announced he's dead set on taking his team to Sin City in the next few years. 

Check out the clip ... seems there's only one way the Raiders could melt Cube's fandom.

Ty Dolla $ign Uncle Sam Demands Back Tax Dolla$

10/23/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-Ty-Dolla-Sign-tmzThe IRS is going after a big chunk of change from Ty Dolla $ign, claiming he's $180,969.35 in the hole.

The rapper was hit with a federal tax lien for 3 separate years -- $16,617.05 in 2011, $54,626.91 in 2013 and $109,725.39 in 2014.

Ty released "Beach House EP" -- his first major label project -- in 2014, so it makes sense he made a lot more money that year. Problem is, according to docs, he didn't pay enough, or any, taxes on that salary. 

Sounds like someone could use a tax cut. Something to think about, Ty.


Miley Cyrus I'm with Her ... Huge Bodyguards Are with Me

10/22/2016 4:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus is out campaigning for Hillary Clinton, and she's doing it with insane amounts of protection ... just in case. 

Miley surprised students at George Mason University by hitting up dorms, knocking on doors and encouraging the kids to vote for Hillary. The video is kinda nuts ... and not only because Miles was rocking a ribbon only SHE could pull off. 

But watch her exit from the dorm ... it was some seriously Secret Service-ish.
