3/28/2017 12:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton got her PLUR on like a 20-something at the Ultra Music Festival this weekend ... she's 36.

Paris came charging in Friday with her new BF, Chris Zylka, for opening night of the Miami rave -- and she was clearly stoked ... age be damned. 

As Paris puts it: F*** YEAH!

Chance The Rapper Most Creative Intern Applicant?

3/28/2017 12:46 PM PDT

0328-chance-the-rapper-tmz-01The hustle is real for Chance the Rapper's open position for an intern, with one applicant going so far as to create a resume that reads like he's going on tour with Chance.

The Chicago MC put a job posting on Twitter saying he needed someone who could help write biz proposals. One applicant named Hospey responded by building a website called, "Hospey Presents: The Cover Letter Tour." Instead of tour dates it lists his work history, including the first time he saw Chance live.

Hospey also wrote an essay about that one time he traveled 15 hours to see Chance, and compared his work experience to his potential boss, saying ... "Similar to the ideologies of Chance the Rapper, my venture has stayed 100% independent."

A little ass kissing can go a long way.

Drake Nothing Personal, Amsterdam ... I Ate Bad Sushi!!

3/28/2017 10:47 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

0327_drake_amsterdam_sick_composite-2Drake had no choice but to cancel his Amsterdam concert because he had a prior engagement ... with a bathroom, due to extreme food poisoning.

Sources close to Drizzy tell us he ate some bad sushi on Monday, and it messed up his stomach. We're told it was so bad he had to get medical treatment immediately. It wasn't enough though ... he was still too sick to go onstage, which seriously pissed off the entire arena full of fans who'd already been waiting in their seats for 75 minutes when they got the bad news.

It was the third time in 3 months Drake had to postpone an Amsterdam gig ... which explains why fans threw crap onstage. He's promised to make up the show Wednesday.

We suggest a simple bowl of rice beforehand.

Robert Horry Master P Can Be An NBA Coach ... After He Pays His Dues

3/28/2017 6:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Robert Horry says there's no limit to what Master P can do in the NBA coaching ranks ... as long as he's willing start from the bottom ... like, the very bottom.

P told us he was gunning for an assistant coach job with the New Orleans Pelicans this summer, and when we got Horry out at LAX we had to ask if he thought the Colonel had a shot.

Horry said he knows P and can vouch for his hoops knowledge, but still thinks he's gonna have to work his way up from the ground floor if he wants a real shot.

Robert said it, not us, P ... It Ain't Our Fault.

Fetty Wap Robbery His Crew Fired First Only Their Shots Landed

3/28/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-fetty-wap-TMZ-3Fetty Wap's crew fired off the only bullets that landed in the shootout after he was robbed -- including a possible self-inflicted gunshot wound ... TMZ has learned.

Eyewitnesses at the scene tell us a member of Fetty's crew fired first at Raheem Thomas' crew in retaliation Sunday morning ... and then that same person allegedly accidentally shot himself in the thigh. 

We're told the shooting started after Fuzz and his Muscle Team boys followed Fetty and co. into a Paterson, NJ deli, where things got violent fast. Sources say Fuzz pistol whipped someone in Fetty's camp, and then he and his guys robbed Fetty and his crew on the spot. 

That's when a second gun was taken out and shots were fired back and forth ... 2 of which landed on 2 of Raheem's guys. At some point after the initial bloodbath ... we're told the original shooter tried escaping and the gun fired in his waistband, striking him in the thigh.

That account roughly matches up with what cops have told us. As we reported ... 2 men were found in the immediate area of the shootout and were transported to hospitals. A 3rd guy thought to be involved checked himself into another hospital soon after.

Raheem's already been booked for gun possession and assault after showing off Fetty's stolen chain on social media -- but it's unclear if he actually fired in the gun battle, despite being seen with a firearm. Prosecutors in court Monday said they did not believe Raheem had personally fired. 

We've reached out to Fetty's camp ... so far, no word back. 

Migos Backpedal on Gay Remarks We Love Makonnen, Frank & All LGBT!

3/28/2017 7:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Migos insist they meant no ill will toward iLoveMakonnen or any other LGBT artist ... heck, they'll even play a gay show if the price is right.

We got the hip-hop trio at LAX, and they were doing some pretty intense backpedaling on seemingly harsh comments they made about Makonnen coming out of the closet.

They tell us their words were twisted in an article, in which they appeared to say things like "They supported him?" and "This world is not right" and, of course, "That's wack, bro."

Seems like Migos found their come-to-Jesus moment in all the backlash they got. Good to see they've got their priorities in order ... morality, money and otherwise.

3/28/2017 7:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Singleton's always dropping knowledge ... his subject this time around -- Tupac.

The famed director was leaving The London NYC on Monday when we asked about Pac's many talents ... and we're not talking just rap skills. Remember, he co-starred in John's "Poetic Justice" back in '93 ... so he would know.

This clip is really interesting, especially considering Tupac's about to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Music only scratches the surface, according to John.

Zayn Malik's young cousin has died after battling a brain tumor for years.

Arshiya Malik was only 5, but had been diagnosed with the tumor several years ago. Zayn took a touching photo with Arshiya and his then fiancée, Perrie Edward, back in 2014 ... the same year his family said, "Doctors have given up on Arshiya but she is still fighting brave like a soldier."

Zayn was "really close" to Arishiya, according to the Daily Mail. He hasn't commented yet about her passing.

The little girl's mother posted a pic, saying ... "An angel wrote in the book of life my baby's date of birth, then whispered as she closed the book.. 'Too beautiful for earth.'"

Reports are surfacing NBC and producers are chomping at the bit to bring Kanye on as host, and discussions are underway. Not true.

Sources close to Kanye and with direct knowledge tell us ... "There is no conversation with Kanye West to join 'American Idol' or any other show for that matter."

There's been a buzz NBC might bring the show back, but not with Yeezy.

Burt Bacharach Sued Your Dog Bit My Fingers Off Thank God for My Groin!!!

3/27/2017 5:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327_Burt-Bacharach_tmzBurt Bacharach's being sued by a dog sitter who claims the mutt chewed off 2 of his fingers, requiring surgery using a skin graft from his groin.

Joel Gayner says he volunteered to take care of Alfie -- a Portuguese Water Dog like the ones the Obamas have. The 73-year-old sitter says one early morning he woke up to Alfie gasping for air, urinating all over the place with its eyes rolling back.

Joel says he dislodged a plastic bone on which Alfie was choking by pressing on his chest, massaging his esophagus and up the windpipe before broken pieces of a plastic bone came out of Alfie's mouth -- along with thick mucus and saliva.

He says this saved Alfie's life but minutes later, when he went to pet him, Joel says the dog snapped and mauled his left hand. The bite was so bad, Joel says his middle finger needed to be surgically reattached. What's more ... he says his index finger was also bitten off and he needed a skin graft from his groin area to reattach the missing chunks.

Joel says his fingers now have dead zones -- no feeling in multiple areas. He's suing for medical expenses and unspecified damages.

We've reached out to Burt, so far no word back.

Michael Jackson Victory for Estate ... Judge Tells Ex-Biz Partners to Beat It

3/27/2017 5:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-michael-jackson-getty-2Michael Jackson's former business partners tried to get a multi-million dollar slice of the pie after MJ's death, but a judge just told them to kick rocks ... TMZ has learned.

Three of the 4 plaintiffs claim they had a meeting with Michael in a Tokyo hotel room on June 1, 2006, and MJ promised them shares of his company. They claim Michael wanted to reward them for their loyalty at a time when the music biz had turned its back on him.

The plaintiffs include MJ's former publicist Raymone Bain and Quadree el-Amin -- a former manager for Boyz II Men -- but they have a big problem. According to docs, there was no written contract, it was an oral agreement. Monday in L.A. the judge said their story lacked credibility, and they were too damn late.

Howard Weitzman, lawyer for the MJ Estate, tells TMZ, "This was a frivolous and outrageous case and these claimants got what they deserved -- which was nothing."

The plaintiffs didn't file their claim until 2014 -- 5 years after Michael's death. The judge said if they really did strike this mega deal -- 1.6% each for 3 of them, and 10% for the 4th -- why not try to get it while Michael was still alive? Not to mention the deadline for such a claim was 2010.

In other words: Too Bad.

EXCLUSIVE

0327-fetty-wap-TMZ-01Fetty Wap's no snitch and that's exactly why he will not file a police report or even talk to cops about his jewelry robbery.

We're told the rapper won't cooperate in the investigation to determine who stole $450k in jewelry and thousands in cash at a Paterson, New Jersey deli early Sunday morning ... a robbery that triggered a shootout in which 3 people were injured.

We're told Fetty sees it this way ...  let the streets handle his feud with Raheem Thomas, aka Fuzz ... who was arrested on gun charges after he flashed Fetty's stolen "1738" chain on Instagram.

It's unclear if cops have tried reaching out to Fetty or anyone in his camp, but they shouldn't waste their time.

The 75 carat gold Cuban chain alone is valued at $350k.
