Kim Kardashian

I Got a Great Idea for Twitter

7/25/2015 7:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

\

0725-kim-k-twitter-tmz-02Kim Kardashian had a brainstorm Friday night to help Twitter, and the co-founder sucked up to her almost instantly.

Kim tweeted, "I just emailed Twitter to see if they can add an edit feature so that when you misspell something u don't have to delete & repost.  Let's see ..." 

A half hour later, Twitter big wig Jack Dorsey responded like it was a cure for cancer ... "great idea! We're always looking at ways to make things faster and easier."

When you have followers, people will follow.

Taylor Swift

Bows Down to Nicki Minaj

breaking news

0723-swift-minaj-getty-twitter-01Taylor Swift blinked first ... giving Nicki Minaj a full-on apology in an attempt to squash their Twitter war. There's hope for world peace, after all.

Taylor tried to dismiss the whole mess, saying ... "I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke."

Swift took the high road, and seemed to accept Nicki's explanation that her initial Twitter rant about a VMAs snub was not an attack on Taylor ... although she never explained who she WAS targeting.

Anyway, Nicki thanked Taylor for the apology ... and now everyone can play nice.

First Meek and now Taylor? Nicki's not just queen of the Barbs. 

Katy Perry

Taylor Swift Is a Hypocrite ...

Re: Girl-On-Girl

0722-perry-swift-tmz-getty-twitter-01Katy Perry just weighed in on music's biggest bitch sesh -- calling Taylor Swift a full-on hypocrite for accusing Nicki Minaj of taking down a woman.  

Perry thinks it's hysterical Swift told Nicki ... "It's so unlike you to pit women against each other." The joke, to Katy ... is that Taylor went for her neck with "Bad Blood" -- and proceeded to make a ton of cash off the song that's all about throwing shade at Katy.  

Nicki took notice -- and favorited Katy's tweet.

Taylor might wanna call for backup.

Mike Tyson

I'm Not Afraid of Twitter

People Always Told My Secrets

7/10/2015 9:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mike Tyson says he wouldn't have had to worry about being put on blast on Twitter back in his heyday -- because when it came to girls, "They told anyway, so it was just like Twitter."

Tyson was at LAX with his wife Lakiha when we asked if social media makes it harder for celebrities and pro athletes to keep their private lives private ... and Mike told us, for him it wouldn't have mattered. 

Check out the clip ... Tyson also responds to boxer James Toney -- who recently said he'd beat Iron Mike's ass if they get into the ring in a widely rumored comeback fight. 

"I'm 50-years-old," Tyson said ... "anybody can beat me now!"

Yeah, we highly doubt that. 

#TheDress Debate 2.0

What Color Is

#TheShoe?!?!

If that damn blue & black OR white & gold dress debate didn't destroy all your friendships -- try this one out ... #TheShoe.

Just like that freakin' #TheDress -- there are 2 options: Pink or purple? The person who posted this included an answer key, sorta -- the nail polish colors.

Does the shoe match the the color on the left ... or the one on the right?

Supposedly the answer is ... left! Now, is that pink or purple? Commence tearing each other apart. 

Safaree Samuels

My New Chick

Is Hotter Than Nicki Minaj

7/9/2015 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0709-safaree-and-zashia-main-01Safaree Samuels found the perfect way to get over Nicki Minaj … super hot model, Zashia Santiago.

Nicki’s ex couldn't keep his hands off Zashia when he posed for a pic with his new buxom babe -- kinda easy to see why.

Safaree and Nicki have been warring with each other ever since their breakup. They've each recorded break up songs, but with Zashia in the picture ... we're thinking he'll be singing a much different tune.

Maybe it's just us, but Zashia looks like a Nicole Murphy-Amber Rose mashup -- and that's a good thing.

Iggy Azalea

I Don't Have to Suck Britney's A**hole

She's Why Our Song Bombed

6/29/2015 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Iggy Azalea has an excuse for everything ... and this time she's throwing stones at Britney Spears

The song "Pretty Girls" bombed hard, despite a highly publicized music video. Iggy now says it's because Britney didn't get off her ass and promote it. Here's how she put it: "Its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featured."

Then Iggy goes in for the kill, saying, "My comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans a**hole 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls." 

Here's the thing. Iggy never says what Britney was required to do. She also has to know ... doing promotional interviews isn't exactly Britney's strong suit ... as in she's a deer in headlights.

And the song got more promotion than most.

Waaaaa, waaaaa, waaaaaa.

Jimmy Fallon

I Nearly Ripped

My Finger Off

Jimmy Fallon and his single working hand are looking for a little sympathy -- he just gave us a first look at the injury, and an explanation for what happened early Friday morning.

Jimmy's left hand is heavily bandaged and elevated in the pic he posted from his hospital bed. He says his ring got caught on the edge of a table when he tripped and fell at home -- and he damn near ripped a finger clean off his hand.

At least the 'Tonight Show' host can still count on his right hand for important things.

Like tweeting ... and other stuff.

Lance Armstrong

Rollin' with Brett Favre

0622-lance-armstrong-TWITTER-01Lance Armstrong has a brand new riding partner ... NFL legend Brett Favre

The two connected at Lance's bike shop Mellow Johnny's in Austin, Texas Monday ... and decided to go out on a ride together.  

We spoke with someone at the shop who tells us the two came into the shop together this morning -- Brett had some service done to his bike ... and then the two hit the road. 

Brett is just the latest big sports star to have Lance's back -- he just rode in Bo Jackson's charity event in Alabama and former British soccer star Geoff Thomas has called for the public to forgive him.  

Caitlyn Jenner

Ladies' Day Out

6/6/2015 4:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0606-caitlyn-jenner-twitter-01Caitlyn Jenner celebrated her "truth" by hanging with her girls ... and paying her respects to transgender pioneers.

CJ posted a pic from behind herself and 5 anonymous GFs looking out at the Malibu hills ... from what appears to be her backyard. Guess they weren't into the Belmont Stakes.

She included the caption, "Learn from those who have walked the path before you. #TransIsBeautiful."

As we've reported ... Caitlyn's docu-series will focus on her relationships with girlfriends. 

Why does it feel like a Beyonce song should be playing in that backyard?

Obama to Caitlyn

Way to Go!

6/1/2015 3:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0716_caitlyn_barack_gettyPresident Obama has weighed in on Caitlyn Jenner's new journey, by heaping praise on her. 

The Prez just tweeted, "It takes courage to share your story," adding, "Your story matters in the fight for LGBT rights."

It's a huge victory for the LGBT community. It's one thing for the President to acknowledge LGBT rights during a State of the Union address ... it's another to voice strong support for the person who has become the most visible transgender person in the world.

Charlie Sheen

Josh Hamilton Doesn't Need AA

... Have a Drink, Hit Bombs

breaking news

0504_charlie_sheen_josh_hamilton_tmz_gettyCharlie Sheen has a message for MLB superstar (and recovering substance abuser) Josh Hamilton -- "F**k AA" ... have a drink and go hit some bombs."

Sheen is FURIOUS at the Los Angeles Angels for the way they treated the embattled slugger -- claiming they did him dirty by trading him to the Rangers after admitting drug use. 

Now, Sheen isn't just blasting the team -- but the whole concept of Alcoholics Anonymous altogether ... with a scathing new message on Twitter. 

"Dear Josh Hamilton, How you are being treated by the 'Devils' is shameful. F*ck AA. Have a drink and go hit some bombs!"

We're gonna guess AA is going to respectfully disagree with Mr. Sheen's position. We're calling 'em for comment -- stay tuned.

update_graphic_red_bar  12:00 PM PST -- AA says it does not comment on statements made by individuals ... and will not respond to Sheen.  update_grey_gray_bar
