The Who

Puff, Puff ...

Shove That Weed Up Your Ass!

5/21/2015 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

****WARNING: Video contains graphic language*****

Roger Daltrey damn near shut down The Who's latest concert because someone was smoking marijuana, and video of the incident is graphic -- for its severely un-rock and roll nature. 

During Wednesday night’s show on Long Island ... the Hall of Fame frontman stopped singing three songs in so he could berate a fan whose weed smoke was bothering his voice. His bandmate Pete Townshend joined in, screaming at the toker ... “eat it up your f***ing arse.” 

At first glance, this is shocking behavior for The Who -- once dubbed the loudest band in the world. But we're told by fans who attended, there was a huge anti-smoking announcement before the concert. So everyone knew the deal.

Plus, Daltrey's had multiple procedures on his throat -- and the tour was even postponed when he got a throat infection in December.

Rock and roll never dies ... but it does grow old.

Robin Thicke

Our Dog Ate Weed

Now It's One Sick Puppy

EXCLUSIVE

0516_robin_thicke_pot_dogRobin Thicke and his 20-year-old girlfriend aren't gonna win any SPCA awards anytime soon, because they accidentally turned their dog into a pothead.

April Love Geary gushed about Bincy last month when she and Robin plunked down $350 for the terrier mix.  

But things went south quickly.  April says a day after they took the pooch home it somehow got into their stash and got sick.  Bincy went to the vet, but apparently she still had a taste for the green stuff.

Three days after returning home, Bincy was back at the animal doc, for the same problem.  This time April insisted it was more of a contact high, but when friends started ragging on her she tweeted, "IT'S NOT ME!!! Some falls on the ground or she sits by him smoking and just inhales it hahaha."

Best we can see, Bincy's back home.  Keep those Funyons away from her, Robin ... they're dangerous.

 April tells us in one of the trips to the vet, although they thought the dog got into the pot the stool sample revealed it was garlic.  It's unclear how the dog got into garlic.

Steve Aoki

Screw Vocal Surgery

LET'S ROCK!!!

5/17/2015 8:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steve Aoki made a weird appearance Saturday ... screaming his lungs out onstage just days after he announced he was cancelling European appearances because of a large nodule on his vocal cord.

Steve threw a huge concert Saturday on the streets of downtown L.A., celebrating the release of his new album, Neon Future II.

He doesn't seem to have a problem with his pipes, which is surprising since he said he was canceling the 5 performances so he could have surgery.

Given the diagnosis, doesn't seem it's just what the doctor ordered. But it's awesome.

NBA's Thabo Sefolosha

Too Injured to Attend Playoff Games

... 'It's Killing Him'

5/16/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0515-MAIN-Thabo-Sefolosha-cast-INSTAGRAM-01ATL Hawks forward Thabo Sefalosha hasn't been able to attend a SINGLE playoff game due to the injuries he suffered during an altercation with the NYPD and he's "devastated" ... sources tell TMZ Sports

As we previously reported, Sefalosha claims he broke his right fibula and sustained ligament damage as cops tried to take him into custody following a stabbing outside of a nightclub last month. 

Thabo underwent surgery ... and sources tell us he's basically been relegated to his home to rest and recover ever since .... while his teammates have been tearing it up in the NBA playoffs. 

"It's killing him that he's not in the playoffs," one source close to Thabo tells us ... "He'd much rather be competing with his team."

Meantime, Sefalosha is still facing criminal charges from the night of the arrest -- obstruction of a police officer and disorderly conduct -- though we're told he's still fighting the case ... and expects to be vindicated

We also spoke with Thabo's lawyer who tells us he cannot comment on the criminal case but says, "They could really use Thabo in the series."

The Edge

Too Close to the Edge

Big Fall

5/15/2015 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Edge still can't find what he's looking for ... in this case, the rest of the stage.

U2 opened up its "Innocence + Experience" world tour Thursday in Vancouver. As the band played its iconic hit, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" ... Edge went flying offstage.

After the show he posted he was fine, writing, "Didn't see the edge, I'm ok!! #U2ieTour." Looks like his arm is badly scraped.

The band is already operating at less than 100% -- Bono suffered a terrible bike accident in NYC last November that required two surgeries.

'Mob Wives' Big Ang

Fingers Crossed ...

I'm One Step from Being Cancer-Free

EXCLUSIVE

Big Ang hit the Big Apple Wednesday night … a month and some change since having a nasty cancerous tumor removed from her throat.

Despite the intense surgery ... it's hard to see any scar, so it looks like the docs did good by the ‘Mob Wives’ star.

Ang gave our camera guy the low down on her road to cancer-freedom. It also looks like she's trying a new diet -- Ang posted a pic of herself hanging at Wild, a gluten-free Italian joint.

Big Ang ain't afraid of change.

Suge Knight

I Got My Mind Made Up

Don't Remove My Tupac Bullet!

EXCLUSIVE

0513-suge-knight-tmz-01
Suge Knight
 has given doctors a piece of his mind ... refusing to have a bullet fragment removed that’s been lodged in his head for the past 19 years ... a bullet intended for Tupac Shakur.

Rewind to 1996 … Knight infamously drove the car carrying Tupac the night of the rap legend’s drive-by murder off the Las Vegas strip.

One of the bullets missed Tupac but grazed Suge's head; a fragment lodged in his skull, and was never removed.

0513-sub-tupac-suge-crime-scene-swipe-klas-01

Here's the problem. Suge's in bad shape as he lingers in a jail cell, and doctors want to perform an MRI so they can figure out why he keeps passing out. But the bullet fragment causes interference with the machine, so doctors want to remove it.  

Suge’s attorney, Matthew Fletcher, tells us Knight thinks he'll die if doctors start screwing with his head and try to remove the fragment, especially given his fragile state.

Aside from medical concerns, you gotta admit ... how cool is it to have a Tupac bullet in your head?

Johnny Depp

Accused of Pup Smuggling

Dogs Get Death Sentence

breaking news

0513-johnny-depp-dogs

Captain Jack Sparrow got carried away with the smuggling -- Johnny Depp's 2 Yorkshire Terrier pups have a death sentence hanging over their heads because Depp allegedly snuck them into Australia.

Australian officials say Johnny and Amber Heard failed to declare Boo and Pistol when they arrived on a private jet last month. Under Australian law the dogs are supposed to be quarantined for a minimum of 10 days ... just to make sure they're not carrying any foreign diseases into the fragile ecosystem.

If Johnny, or more accurately ... Boo and Pistol don't hightail it out of Oz by Saturday -- the country's Agriculture minister says they will be put down.

A rep for Johnny -- who's down there shooting the 5th 'Pirates' flick -- told the AP the dogs are under a "home quarantine" ... but wasn't more specific than that.

Pretty harrrrsh sentence ... but Aussie officials say the law is the law.

Olympian Amy Van Dyken

Standing On My Own

'Biggest Accomplishment Of My Life'

5/13/2015 3:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She's one of the most decorated Olympic athletes in United States history .. but Amy Van Dyken says the biggest accomplishment of her life is STANDING again ... after severing her spinal cord last year.

Her story is incredible -- Van Dyken was seriously injured in a brutal ATV wreck back in 2014 ... but she's been fighting like hell to regain full use of her legs -- and this week, made some serious progress.

In fact, Amy appeared on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" on Wednesday and told us that battling back to stand on her own was "absolutely" the biggest accomplishment of her life ... even greater than winning her 6 gold medals.

You gotta watch the video -- Amy says she's laser focused on walking on her own one day ... and given the progress she's made so far, you'd have to be crazy to doubt her.

Pres. Candidate Dr. Ben Carson

My Latest Speech Lacks Teeth

EXCLUSIVE

0513-main-carson-tmz-01Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson does not lack wisdom, but incisors are a different story.

The Republican hopeful -- who made a name for himself in 1987 as the first neurosurgeon to separate twins conjoined at the head -- was stumping at Tommy's Country Ham House in Greenville, South Carolina where he chowed down on scrambled eggs, grits and ham biscuits when he noticed a bonus on his plate ... his front tooth had fallen out. 

0513-subasset-carson-tmz-01The good doc stared into his plate, thought for a second then discretely placed the errant chomper into his shirt pocket. 

Carson then stood up and delivered an impassioned speech ... with a hint of whistle.

She forgot one hash tag -- #OlympicHero.
