The BET, VH1 and SiriusXM host (in your face, Seacrest) joined us on "TMZ Live" to break down Diddy's call for a sort of boycott. There's some debate about whether Puff meant don't vote at all ... or just hold the candidates' feet to the fire before you do vote.
We got into it with Sway, who added -- regardless of race -- it's hard to believe ANY politician.
Ryan Lochte got what he deserved when the USOC suspended him and banned him from U.S Swimming's National Championships, but there's still an upside ... according to swimming great Rowdy Gaines.
Rowdy -- a 3-time gold medalist who knows Lochte -- came on "TMZ Live" and pulled no punches, telling us Ryan's lie in Rio was a huge mistake that forced the USOC to drop the stiff 10 month suspension.
He also thinks Ryan will have plenty of time to stage a comeback, and Michael Phelps is a perfect example of that -- since he was also banned from the National swim meet after his DUIs.
And check out Rowdy's take on the 10 month sentence. Bottom line ... NBD.
Ann Coulter got the shaft on the "Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe" -- not because every celeb on the dais ripped her to shreds -- but because Comedy Central made it seem like her jokes bombed.
That's Ann's version of what went down during the taping, anyway. She came on "TMZ Live" to talk about the beating she took -- even a few liberals have sympathy for the conservative lightning rod in the aftermath of the show.
Coulter told us she wrote her own jokes and claims she got plenty of laughs in the room -- but she has a theory on why that laughter was missing from the final cut.
We've reached out to Comedy Central, but no word back yet.
Geragos addressed the media Friday -- and made it clear -- he says no guns or drugs were found by cops in the singer's home. He also stated reports Brown's 2-year-old daughter, Royalty, was home during the alleged incident are total BS.
It's interesting ... Mark said his office is still investigating the validity of text messages Baylee Curran allegedly sent which show she was trying to set Chris up. Geragos said if it's found Curran did lie, he'll call for a criminal investigation against her.
Geragos was on "TMZ Live" Friday to discuss the case ... and has his own theory on Baylee's motives.
