Katy Perry Blasted for Collab with Migos Over Homophobic Remarks

4/27/2017 12:45 PM PDT

Katy Perry's getting slammed for her new single before anyone's even heard it, because people aren't cool with her co-stars on the track -- Migos.

Perry's new song, "Bon Appetit," will be released Friday, but the backlash has already begun when the cover art revealed she collaborated with the rappers. Fans are pissed because they've made homophobic and misogynistic remarks ... notably, when an ATL rapper came out as gay, Quavo said, "This world is not right."

Now, Perry's getting heat  ... especially after accepting a National Equality Award last month at the Human Rights Campaign gala.

This isn't a first for the pop singer ... she's also been criticized by the LGBT community for her songs "I Kissed a Girl" and "Ur So Gay."

We reached out to Katy's people ... so far no word back.

Scott Baio Backlash Over My Erin/Drugs Comments Fueled Purely by Trump Haters

4/25/2017 2:28 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Baio thinks much of the backlash he's gotten for his comments about Erin Moran's drug issues is driven by his ties to Donald Trump.

Scott told us liberals have been attacking him for linking his former co-star's death to a drug overdose during a radio interview -- but says his haters' political biases are seeping through.

The attacks don't appear to faze him though. Although it turns out Erin died from cancer -- and not substance abuse problems -- he says it doesn't change his strong feelings about the dangers of drugs.

Scott Baio on Erin Moran I Wouldn't Have Raised Drug Issues If I Knew About the Cancer

4/25/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Baio feels terrible for ripping his co-star, Erin Moran, for her drug use and says he never would have done it if he'd known she was battling cancer.

Scott tells TMZ he was wrong to insinuate Erin -- his "Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi" co-star -- had died from drug-related problems. He went pretty hard on her during a radio interview Monday morning.

He tells us he went to bed Sunday reading reports she'd possibly died of a heroin overdose, and went into the interview with that in mind. He was upset he'd lost Erin to drugs after she wrestled with substance abuse for years.

However, hours after he went off the air ... officials in Indiana announced Erin had likely died from complications of stage 4 cancer. Scott says if he had known, he would've kept his mouth shut.

He tells us Erin never disclosed her diagnosis to him -- even after his wife, Renee, spoke to her just last month. He adds ... Renee has battled cancer herself several times, so losing Erin this way hits close to home.

Nick Cannon can't stop, won't stop ... hanging with exes, and Christina Milian is the latest!

The former couple was leaving Sugarfish Monday in Studio City where they were all smiles. Christina says they're still friends and working on some business deal.

As for any chance of Nick reconciling with Mariah -- since they've also been hanging out A LOT lately -- listen and judge for yourself.

BTW ... Nick's had a tough time recently in the medical department, but is this guy ripped, or what?

David Spade Gets Naya Out of the Pool ... Into a VERY Sexy Dress

EXCLUSIVE

David Spade and Naya Rivera ain't a one-off -- they were hanging again, this time on land, and everything about her outfit says he'll be back for more.

The couple did dinner at Nobu in Malibu Thursday night. It's the first time we've seen them together since the shots of them snuggling in a pool a few weeks ago in Hawaii.

Since then David's tried to blow off the relationship, telling us it's NBD. However, Naya's dress at dinner -- cut wayyy up to there -- screams it is. Or at least it was that night.

Plus, let's not forget David's ex Heather Locklear's confirmation ... of the BIG deal.

EXCLUSIVE

The woman 50 Cent punched square in the chest is now going full bore against the rapper ... lawyering up for a lawsuit.

Donnetta Derr has a law firm behind her that will sue 50 early next week. She'll also sue The Lox, with whom Fiddy performed, and the venue, Baltimore Soundstage.

TMZ broke the story ... 50 was performing last week when the woman grabbed his arm and pulled him off stage. 50 retaliated with a vicious punch.

Donnetta later went onstage and twerked ... leading people to believe the beef was squashed ... nope.

Attorney Warren Brown tells us Donnetta went to the hospital the next day and hired him Monday.

Brown calls 50's conduct "cowardly."

Kelly Rowland was unfazed by the fur protest that hijacked her book signing, showing no signs she'll change her wardrobe.

Kelly landed at LAX Thursday and only chuckled when our photog asked about the animal rights protest Wednesday at a New Jersey bookstore where she was hawking her new book, 'Whoa, Baby.'

Kelly was Coachella-bound -- even with her old group mate having to bow out -- and had no problem telling us which performer she wants to see most.

EXCLUSIVE

Kendall Jenner has chosen Coachella as the place she'll return to the spotlight after the epically disastrous Pepsi ad.

We've learned Kendall will host a party for the Bumble dating app in Rancho Mirage this weekend. The company is taking over a mansion in an exclusive gated community and will create a winter wonderland with real ice and snow ... in the desert!

Kendall will also guest DJ at an event over the weekend.

We're told Kylie will be by Kendall's side at both events.

Sean Spicer Anne Frank Ctr. Wants Him Gone For Hitler Remark

4/11/2017 1:42 PM PDT
Breaking News

3:19 PM PT -- Sean Spicer has formally apologized for his comments comparing Hitler to Bashar al-Assad. He told CNN Tuesday, "I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust. There is no comparison." 

Sean Spicer should be fired for saying Syria's president is worse than Hitler ... so says the Anne Frank Center

The Center's executive director said Spicer's statement is "the most evil slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary." He also called for Spicer's immediate termination.

Spicer's been under the gun since Tuesday's press briefing, where he said not even Adolf Hitler sank to using chemical weapons like Present Bashar al-Assad did on his own people. 

Spicer also flubbed while trying to clarify, adding ... "He was not using the gas on his own people in the same way that Assad is doing." The fact Hitler did just that, and in far greater capacity than Assad, has Rep. Nancy Pelosi also demanding Spicer be fired.

Spicer has issued an apology of sorts, saying ... "In no way was I trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust, however, I was trying to draw a contrast of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on innocent people."

Karrueche Tran More Than Amigos with Migos' Quavo

4/11/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Karrueche Tran and Quavo from Migos are definitely the real deal, but their relationship isn't real romantic just yet.

Sources connected to both of them tell us Quavo's been hanging with Chris Brown's ex-GF for a few months, and while it started in the friend zone ... they've gotten much closer lately. They've juggled their schedules to wedge in a few dates.

That includes this past weekend in Biloxi where they rode off together following Migos' concert. We're told neither's calling it "exclusive" at this point -- they're just enjoying each other's company.

Sounds a lot like happily banging ... to us, anyway.

Kendall Jenner Pepsi Ad May Have Crossed Legal Line With San Francisco PD

4/7/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kendall Jenner's Pepsi ad has cops on the soda company's tail ... cops from the police department depicted in the video.

You see an emblem on the cop's shirt sleeve with the words, "San Francisco Police." There's also an eagle spreading its wings ... pretty much like the real SFPD uniforms except the color scheme is different.

Sources at the San Francisco PD tell us Pepsi never asked permission to mimic their uniforms. What's more, the sources say they're working with the City Attorney to determine if producers crossed the legal line by using the logo, which the City considers proprietary.

True enough ... pics of the emblem are featured in behind the scenes footage of the making of the commercial -- footage that was released online and got lots of views, and might now land producers in even more hot water.

Kylie Jenner Locked In 'Savage' Rap Beef ... Who's Your Daddy??

4/7/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner's the prize in a battle between rapper 21 Savage and his rival, 22 Savage ... who just recorded a love song of sorts to woo her.

TMZ got ahold of the track, "Kylie's Daddy," which features 22 S as well as teen sisters, Iliana Eve and DJ Hannahbella and singer, Ziggy.

The track will be part of the sisters' debut album, "Daddy Issues" -- but the real issue here is 22 Savage making such a public play for Kylie ... after 21 Savage made it clear HE wants to make it nasty with her.

21's already got beef with 22 over the whole name thing, and this song won't help. It has 22 and Iliana dropping pickup lines on Kylie! We're told it'll be on iTunes and Spotify in the next week or so. 

BTW, no truth to reports 21 Savage collaborated on the track. Pretty sure this won't be on his playlist.
