Miss Israel & Miss Lebanon

Go to War ...

Over a Selfie!

1/19/2015 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
0116-miss-israel-instagram-02Miss Israel and Miss Lebanon are dropping bombs on one another, but it has nothing to do with the Holy Land ... it's about a selfie.  

The two women are competing in the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant and posed for a photo together, which Miss Israel Doron Matalon posted online last week.

But the pic put Miss Lebanon Saly Greige in a hot water in her homeland -- ya know, the whole Israel and Lebanon thing -- so she posted her own version ... with Matalon cropped out. 

0116-subasset-miss-lebanon-instagramGreige said she was very cautious to avoid being photographed with Miss Israel and claims that Matalon in essence photobombed her. 

She wrote, "I was having a photo with Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia, suddenly Miss Israel jumped in and took a selfie, and uploaded it on her social media."

Matalon responded to the cropping, writing, "It doesn't surprise me, but it still makes me sad. Too bad you can not put the hostility out of the game, only for three weeks of an experience of a lifetime."

But ...

EXCLUSIVE
011915_mike_huckabee_launchMike Huckabee is walking back from his Beyonce comments, but just a little bit ... calling Bey a "mega-talent," but wishing out loud she'd be a little more conservative.

In his new book, Huckabee called out President Barack Obama for letting his kids listen to Beyonce's music, saying her lyrics are "obnoxious and toxic mental poison."

But Sunday night at LaGuardia, Huckabee proclaimed his love for all things Bey ... but says she shouldn't feel the need to be so risqué to be popular.

Huckabee also had some words for Jimmy Carter ... who threw shade Huck's way to a TMZ photog last week.

breaking news
0118-joe-biden-getty-01Multiple gunshots were fired outside of Vice President Joe Biden's home in Delaware Saturday night ... this according to the feds.

A vehicle reportedly drove by his home around 8:25 PM and fired off multiple shots from hundreds of yards beyond the Secret Service's perimeter.

The Vice Prez and his wife were not home when the shots went off ... but they were briefed on the incident following the shooting.

Biden's home is located several hundred yards away from the main road where the shots were fired ... and the residence will be searched to figure out if any bullets hit his house.

Shortly after the shooting, a driver attempted to get past the police perimeter ... but was immediately arrested by police.  Unclear if this is the same vehicle, or driver who fired the shots.

Levi Johnston

Baby Overboard

New Kid's a 'Water Sign'

Exclusive Details
Levi Johnston Baby BornNot sure she'll hunt like her daddy, but she may be a swimmer -- Levi Johnston's new baby made a huge splash during a water birth.

The former nearly-Palin-in-law and wife Sunny Johnston welcomed baby girl Indy Rae Johnston on January 11. With a name like Indy, you'd think she came out fast -- but we're told the 7.4 pounder took 4 hours to cross the slippery finish line. 

If you're keeping score, this is Levi's third after ... Tripp with Bristol Palin and Breeze with Sunny.

Sunny and Indy are doing great, and Levi's determined to make her an outdoorsy chick -- she already has pink-camo gear.

Even Sarah Palin would be proud of that.

If JFK is watching ... here's your New Frontier ... two of your niece's children are banging the offspring of the dude who sang "Achy Breaky Heart."

We've learned Miley Cyrus is not the only one getting a piece of the Kennedys ... her brother Braison is dating boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger's sis, Christina.

0114-subasset-braison-christina-instagramMiley and Patrick have been tight since November. We now know a month later 20-year-old Braison began hooking up with 23-year-old Christina. 

So here's the conundrum ... if both couples get married, Braison will be Miley's brother-in-law and brother, while Christina will be Patrick's sister-in-law and sister.  

Camelot meets PBR ... awesome.

EXCLUSIVE
011415_jimmy_carter_launch_v2Jimmy Carter slammed Mike Huckabee Tuesday for criticizing the Obamas' parenting skills.

We got the ex-prez at LaGuardia Airport and asked about Huckabee's barb that good parents don't let their kids listen to Beyonce.  

Carter, who was flanked by Secret Service, didn't contain his disdain for the would-be presidential candidate. 

He's still got it.

111315_justin_beiber_launch_v2There was an elephant in the room at a meeting of gay L.A. Republicans ... and the elephant was Justin Bieber 

The L.A. chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans had a meeting Monday night  at State Social House, one of Bieber's favorite restaurants.

Here's the thing. Justin showed up with 4 friends and wanted his usual perch ... in a placed called The Attic. Problem was ... The gay Republicans were still meetin'.

Justin and his crew were undaunted and just walked into The Attic, sat in the back and ordered chicken wings as the group discussed gay rights in the Republican ranks.

One of the LCR members called in to the Jillian Barberie and John Phillips' show on 790 KABC, and said he thought Justin was just a pretty lesbian ... or a "butcher version of Miley Cyrus.'

He's been called worse.

Barack Obama

Roasts The Spurs

It's Hard to Hate Old People

1/12/2015 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
011215_obama_spurs_launchThe Barack Obama comedy tour continued at the White House Monday ... when for the second time in a year, he roasted a pro sports team to their faces. This time, the NBA champions the San Antonio Spurs were in the crosshairs.  

Among the targets ... THE ENTIRE TEAM ... with Obama explaining why it's hard to hate a team full of senior citizens. 

He also took as few shots at Coach Gregg Popovich and joked about Matt Bonner's aspiring career as a food blogger named "The Red Mamba."

The Comedian-In-Chief did the same schtick last year when the Seattle Seahawks came to visit . 

Remember, tip your waitress.

It may have pissed off his BFF Kim Jong Un ... but Dennis Rodman didn't seem to have a problem with "The Interview."

The Worm was leaving Talesai restaurant on Sunset when we asked if watched the Seth Rogen comedy that became an international political issue over a death scene involving Un.  

Unclear if Rodman actually saw the flick, but when we asked him how he felt about the situation as a whole ... he told us, "It's all good."

No anger. No outrage. Nothing.

Interesting note ... Thursday was Kim Jong Un's birthday.

Last year, Rodman celebrated the occasion by singing "Happy Birthday" to Un in person. This year ... Thai food in Hollywood.

Wonder what changed?

Country Singer on ESPN

Jerry Jones & Chris Christie Are Gay Lovers

1/7/2015 3:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
010715_espn_homosexual_comment_launchGLAAD is probably gonna have a thing or two to say about this one ...

Because a big country music star just took a cheap shot at Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Gov. Chris Christie live on ESPN ... and let's put it this way, he suggested there were shenanigans in the owner's box. 

Kinky Friedman -- a country singer/wannabe politician/author/avid cigar smoker -- just appeared on ESPN's "Outside the Lines" to talk to Bob Ley about the famous hug during last weekend's playoff game. 

His response ... well, you just have to watch the clip. Unreal.
