It Hurts to Pee

4/7/2015 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bo Jackson used to be the king of TWO sports ... now, he's got problems handling a #1. 

Jackson called in to "TMZ Hollywood Sports" and told us about how he's getting his 52-year-old body ready for his annual charity cycling event, Bo Bikes Bama ... but he's moving a little slower than he used to. 

"I got up this morning and went to the bathroom to pee ... and pulled a muscle," Bo joked. 

But the real headline could be that Bo thinks he's gonna get his "BUTT KICKED" in the ride by his former nemesis Brian Bosworth -- who's announced he's participating this year. 

Check out the clip ... Bo explains how the former rivals reconnected after nearly 30 years for a great cause -- and why he's confident Bosworth will finally get his revenge.

Yet Noah -- a total pro -- only has three little words to say about it ... "No Big Deal."

'Mob Wives' Star Big Ang

Throat Tumor

Is Cancerous

EXCLUSIVE

Big Ang Cancer
"Mob Wives" star Big Ang received the news she was dreading -- the tumor on her throat is malignant.

Ang’s sister, Janine Detore, tells TMZ the tumor is on Ang's voicebox and her voice is deteriorating as a result. She says doctors determined the lemon-sized growth was cancerous after looking at it with a scope and running blood tests.

Janine says the family is awaiting results of another test to determine if the cancer has spread.

There's no history of cancer in the family, but Janine says they fear Ang's 42 years of smoking might have contributed. She adds ... doctors have ordered Ang to quit smoking immediately.

None of the ordeal has been filmed for "Mob Wives" ... but Janine says it might be addressed on the show at some point. Ang is scheduled to have surgery next week to remove the tumor. 

Janine says, "We are hoping for the best and are focusing on getting through the holiday. We love the fans and want to thank them."

David Lee Roth

Who Gave Me This Bloody Nose?

Oh Right, It Was Me!

3/31/2015 7:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Lee Roth has no one to blame but himself for that bloody gash he had on his nose during "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" ... because he whacked himself during his signature mic stand trick.

Roth and the rest of Van Halen reunited for an epic performance on "Kimmel" Monday night, but the sanitized version that aired didn't tell the whole story. 

During the initial performance of "Panama" ... Roth hit himself in the face with his mic stand while twirling it, leaving a cut across the bridge of his nose.

0331-subasset-van-halen-gettyHe kept going, eventually walking offstage to grab a towel. He then patched it up with a band-aid and did the song again. That's the version that aired. 

The show must go on.

0325-devon-leah-still-instagram-01Great news for the Still family -- Cincinnati Bengals lineman Devon Still just announced his 4-year-old daughter Leah is WINNING her battle against cancer .... because it's officially in remission!!!

You know the back story ... Leah was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma back in June and doctors said she had a 50/50 chance to live. 

Despite the fact he wasn't supposed to make the team, the Bengals signed Devon to a contract so he would continue to get health insurance to cover Leah's medical bills.  

Leah's been fighting like hell ever since ... and Wednesday, Devon announced the tide has turned in her favor. 

"Today we received news from Leah's oncologist that her cancer, stage four neuroblastoma, is officially in REMISSION! After 296 days of daydreaming about what it would feel like to hear the doctors say my daughter is in remission, I finally know the feeling."

"When I look at my daughter all I can do is smile and hug her."

"I'm so proud and blessed to call her my daughter. She has made an impact on me and on the world, at the age of four, that I can only wish to make in a lifetime." 

Thank you to my family and friends for the support through all those tough days. Thank you to everyone who has sent a letter to give Leah and our family motivation to keep fighting, a toy that helped Leah get through her days in the hospital, and more importantly a prayer that helped God hear our cries for healing." 

He added, "Thank you to the Bengals for taking on my situation and standing by me and my family and for helping to raise money to fight pediatric cancer."

"Leah is not done with treatments yet. She still needs more to make sure the cancer cells do not return and to build back up her immune system and other damage from the chemo but I know my little warrior will get through it!"

Miley Cyrus

Gets Yanked by the Dentist

After Tooth Shaming

3/25/2015 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus Teeth Miley Cyrus has unlocked the secret to free dental advice -- post your X-ray online and let dental experts weigh in, but be warned ... it might not be all good news.

Miley posted the shot on Instagram and it didn't take long for the reviews to pour in, and several blasted her mouth work. We spoke to one reviewer, a dental assistant named Ashley, who gave us this dental Yelp:

-- Miley has veneers on all her upper teeth and had a root canal at some point
-- She might want to get another set of X-rays ... she could have a few cavities
-- Her wisdom teeth need to come out soon (the top ones are impacted and could be a big problem for her other molars if not dealt with soon) 

Miley might have taken that advice ... she posted a pic Wednesday of a few teeth she got pulled.

Fun Fact(ish): A recent study said the Tooth Fairy pays West coast kids $4.68/tooth, on average. Don't it spend all in one place, Miley.
