Kim Kardashian busted a move and lip sank as Kanye West made a surprise appearance Saturday night at a Superbowl party.

It was actually Rihanna's night to perform at the Direct TV party, when Kanye took the stage.  We got hold of the video, and it's pretty awesome.

It looked like an awesome concert ... lots of stars, including John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Dez Bryant and Mark Cuban.

The night wasn't over when the concert ended.  Kim, Kanye Chrissy and John hit up The Waffle House at 2:30 AM and feasted on bacon melts, and chicken and eggs.

The Superbowl's better on TV, right?

NFL's Titus Young

Football Hits Caused Mental Issues

... Doctors Say

2/1/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NFL star Titus Young is suffering from a traumatic brain injury caused by repeated blows to the head ... which contributed to his alleged violent behavior ... so say the specialists treating Young at a mental health facility in San Diego. 

As we previously reported, the 25-year-old former Detroit Lions receiver was arrested last year after allegedly attacking people in 5 separate incidents ... and was locked up in a L.A. County jail. 

Now, we've learned Young recently bonded out and has been receiving treatment at the Crosby Center in S.D. -- where specialists believe Young's issues come from the hits he took playing football. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Pete Daniels, intake coordinator at the Center, who tells us Young was admitted to the facility last weekend and has been working with a team of specialists and doctors non-stop. 

Despite the short stay, Daniels says the doctors say Young's symptoms include hypervigilance, mood swings, emotional instability and more. 

"All of the these are results of Young taking hits to the head for long periods of time," Daniels says ... "without a doubt."

Daniels says Young has been responding positively to the treatment -- he's feeling better and more in control of his life. 

Young -- who's still facing criminal charges for the alleged assaults -- is expected to remain at the center for least 6 more weeks. Daniels says he hopes the judge will allow him to continue treatment instead of putting him back behind bars. 

"He’s trusting us and he's allowing a family member to stay with him to provide support," Daniels says ... "We should have a good, accurate diagnosis and plan of how to address his treatment in the next 21 days."

He's only 5 months old, but the son of boxing champ Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin is already killin' the modeling game -- booking some pretty big gigs .... and even appearing on the "Today" show.

Quillin -- the former WBO Middleweight champ -- says his son Joaquin just finished up a modeling shoot with Babies "R" Us ... in which his little man is modeling a bassinet. 

Joaquin was also picked to star in a "Today" show segment last week with Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee -- in which the gang gave advice on how to budget for college for a newborn. 

Quillin says everyone loved him so much, there's a good chance Joaquin will be back on the show next week. He also just filmed a bit for TheBump.com. 

"I'm so proud of my son," Peter says ... "Whether he decides to box or model, his mom and I will be his number one fan."

Apparently, Dez Bryant is human after all.

TMZ Sports has footage of the Dallas Cowboys superstar going up for a wide open dunk at a charity hoops game in AZ on Saturday ... only to get STUFFED by the rim.

It was a rare athletic misfire by the NFL superstar -- who, along with several other celebs, participated in the Gridiron Celebrity Hoops XVII charity game in Phoenix this weekend.

The game raised money for Juli’s Kids Motivated to Succeed (Juli’s Kids) -- whose mission is to enrich the lives of today’s abused, abandoned, neglected and homeless children.

As for Dez, we're told the rest of his game was solid -- but more importantly, props for helping out a great cause.

Another boxing superstar is taking a pass on Roc Nation Sports ... with WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder saying he won't "jump ship" to join Jay Z's crew.

As we previously reported, RNS is making a serious run at the top boxers in the world -- and has already signed big names including Andre Ward and rising star Dusty Harrison-Hernandez.

But Wilder -- who demolished Bermane Stiverne during their championship fight two weeks ago -- says he wont be following suit ... telling TMZ Sports he's sticking with his Al Haymon, one of the biggest managers in the sport.

BONUS -- Wilder says he does a solid DMX impression ... and put his skills on display last night at the end of the clip.

Also, even if you're not a boxing fan, you may remember Wilder as the guy who KNOCKED OUT a heckler who famously harassed him at an L.A. gym last year. Good stuff ...

Despite the fact he hasn't played in an NFL game since 2012, Tebow has made it clear he still wants to pursue his dream of playing QB in the NFL ... and has been training hard in case the phone rings.

But Moon says he's a big fan of what Tebow's been doing OFF the field as an analyst for ESPN and as a correspondent for "Good Morning America" ... and seems to think he has a brighter future without pads.

And if that doesn't work out, there's  always golf ...

Win the Super Bowl ... THEN be with you family ... that's how Richard Sherman should prioritize if his pregnant GF goes into labor right before the game -- so says ex-NFL star Ricky Watters.

The former Super Bowl champ was rocking his SB ring out in AZ last night when we asked about the real-life dilemma Sherman could be facing tomorrow.

Brandon Marshall

Cleared for Takeoff

... After Punctured Lung Injury

EXCLUSIVE

0130-brandon-marshall-airplane-getty-01Chicago Bears fans can take a deep breath, 'cause Brandon Marshall's punctured lung is doing MUCH better ... so say his doctors who allowed the WR to begin flying again ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We broke the story ... Marshall had to miss a court-ordered deposition last month stemming from a case in which he's accused of attacking a woman outside of a NYC nightclub in 2012.

Marshall claimed doctors told him it was unsafe to fly since he had just suffered a punctured lung from a hit he took during a Thursday Night Football game. 

But everything's been healing well ... and earlier this month, Marshall told the court he's been cleared for takeoff ... and was willing and able to attend a makeup depo on January 30th. 

Sources tell us Marshall made his appointment and sat for a deposition without a hitch ... or a breathing issue.

In fact, now that he's got the green light to fly, Marshall's been traveling like crazy -- hitting PHX, CHI, NYC and L.A. in just the last few days.

Pharrell Williams has officially passed the wide brim hat torch to a guy who torches defenses ... Steelers star Antonio Brown tells TMZ Sports his fashion forward lid set him back over $600!

Brown is with the rest of the sports world at the Super Bowl in Arizona so when our camera guy ran into the always dapper Pro Bowler we had to ask ... dude, what's with the hat?

That's when Brown swagged us out a little bit, telling us that his fancy lid wasn't any regular dome-shielder ... this one put a $600 dent in his $42 million pockets.

One more thing ... we're not fashion experts ... and far be it for us to question a man's right to expression, but ...

We're pretty sure he's wearing the hat backwards.
