Either Justin Bieber's van had some serious mechanical problems in L.A. today ... or his crew was blazing a METRIC TON of Mary Jane inside -- because when the singer slid the door open and stepped out, he was followed by a Hiroshima-level cloud of smoke.
You gotta see it. It's like something out of a stoner movie.
Bieber -- a noted weed enthusiast -- was arriving for a radio interview at Power 106. Here's hoping he can still form complete sentences.

But I'm Doing it For You

Kanye West is painfully aware Kanye has a gigantic ego, but claims it's not because Kanye is into himself ... it's all for his fans. What a giver.
Ye went on a rant over the weekend in Anaheim, telling fans the media has him all wrong when they say he acts out because he wants to look "doper."
The ever-humble fiance of Kim Kardashian added, he doesn't "give a f**k about looking cool" or being dope ... because he's been dope "since age motherf**king 5."
But you gotta hear his excuse for acting like an arrogant jerk ... because, basically, he's saying it's your fault.

Ryan Seacrest's company X-mas party got REAL cheeky this week in Hollywood -- in fact, some random weirdo was arrested outside on the street ... after dancing all over the place in assless chaps ... and the hilarious scene was all caught on tape.
We have no idea who the mystery man is or why he was there -- but Tuesday night outside Loteria restaurant, this god among men stripped down to assless chaps ... and danced away like there was no tomorrow.
The best part ... he was dancing to Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up." And he's got some impressive moves too.
Okay, we take that back. The best part is when he gets arrested.
Booted From Beatdown Party
Renter Says 'It Was Her Fault'
12/10/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Barron Hilton's bloody beatdown led to Lindsay Lohan getting kicked out of the South Florida mansion where they were partying ... according to a witness -- and TMZ has video of LiLo trying to re-enter the property.
In the video ... Lindsay's at the driveway gate of the home trying to get back inside, but the guard doesn't budge. Lohan's bodyguard then says, "Your brother's still there" ... referring to Michael Lohan Jr., who was also raging that night/morning.
One of the people renting the Star Island pad tells us Linds got booted because she freaked out and begged her pal Ray LeMoine to throw Barron out of the party. We're told her demand is what led to Ray punching Paris' kid bro.
The renter says it was unclear what sparked Lohan's grudge -- but Barron has said Lindsay accused him of talking trash.
Lindsay is adamant she wasn't kicked out, and only left because of rampant drug and alcohol use.
A few hours after Lindsay left, Barron was still chilling at the mansion ... face battered, and waiting to talk to police.

Paul Walker's father Paul Walker Sr. could barely keep himself together today in L.A., claiming the entire Walker family has been struggling to cope with the actor's sudden death.

The whole video is pretty emotional and hard to watch, but it's worth it in the end -- Paul's dad tells everyone how Paul would want to be remembered ... and it's a beautiful image.
Paul Walker Death is 'F**king Horrible'
12/2/2013 6:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Matt Damon finally said what everyone in Hollywood has been thinking -- Paul Walker's death is "f**king horrible."
Damon was arriving at LAX with his wife yesterday when he was asked about the tragedy involving the "Fast and the Furious" actor ... and was as brutally honest as he could be.
Damon said the two knew each other -- though it's unclear how well. It doesn't appear the two ever worked together.
Still, Damon's words couldn't ring more true -- Walker was known around town as one of the nicest guys in the biz ... and was attending a charity event at the time of the fatal crash.
Paul was 40.

Moments before Paul Walker took what turned out to be a fatal ride -- he posed proudly next to the exotic car that exploded on impact in the deadly accident.
Paul was photographed with the red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that belonged to his friend Roger Rodas. They were attending a fundraiser in Santa Clarita, CA.
We're told the photos and video were taken about 30 minutes before the accident.
As TMZ first reported ... Paul had put together the charitable event -- through his Reach Out Worldwide organization -- to support typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines.
Paul was the passenger in the Porsche when Rodas lost control and slammed into a tree. The car exploded, and the Sheriff's Department says speed was a factor.
Aussie Hotel to Bieber
We Love Your Crappy Graffiti
11/28/2013 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Here's something crazy -- the Australian hotel Justin Bieber tagged up this week has ZERO plans to scrub off his crappy artwork from its walls ... in fact, a rep tells TMZ, they're stoked the Biebs left his mark.
We posted the video Wednesday, showing Bieber spray-painting hideous multi-colored monsters onto a wall at the Brisbane hotel where he was staying.
You'd think the hotel would be pissed, but it's not -- the rep for the QT Gold Coast hotel tells us, "It was a coup for the hotel to have Justin want to paint a piece of art in appreciation of his stay."
The rep adds, "This piece of art is now available to be viewed by fans of the artist and we believe that it is a wonderful addition to the colourful Gold Coast arts scene."
It's unclear if they're also preserving the toilet he crapped in.

Queensland cops tell TMZ ... they're well aware of the illicit artwork .. but so far, no formal complaint has been made -- and the GC mayor says he's ordered a cleanup crew for the wall.
Tag on, tagger.
The Great Paparazzi Diversion
Are You Hiding Pregnant Mila Kunis??
11/26/2013 9:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ashton Kutcher got aggressive with the paparazzi outside of a popular restaurant on Melrose Ave. last night -- but the whole tough guy act may have just been a cover to keep his allegedly pregnant girlfriend away from cameras.
Ashton and Mila Kunis were eating dinner at Carlitos Gardel Restaurant in Hollywood -- great Argentinian food -- and it also happens to be smack in the middle of a heavily-trafficked celeb sighting area.
So, the paps (not TMZ) were surprised when Ashton emerged from the restaurant and tried to strong-arm the photogs into leaving the scene.
During the confrontation, one of Ashton's associates can be seen in the background quickly escorting Mila into Kutcher's ride ... as if they're trying to slip past the cameras.
FYI -- Mila was wearing a baggy shirt and baggy jeans. So, the mystery remains.
