Nicki Minaj Pays Students' Loans, Tuition ... Who Asked On Twitter!

5/7/2017 10:25 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

11:05 AM PT -- TMZ has confirmed 2 more people have received funds from Nicki, with one payment being for $800. Everyone else waiting for theirs ... sit tight. 

Nicki Minaj didn't just talk the talk (or tweet the tweet) -- TMZ has learned the rapper ALREADY started transferring thousands of dollars to college students who asked for her financial help on Twitter. 

The story is great ... a fan sent Nicki a meme Saturday night on Twitter jokingly asking if she would fork over a check to cover some college fees. 

Nicki replied, "Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious. Shld I set it up?"

As you can imagine, Nicki's timeline BLEW UP with requests from students -- and Nicki responded to more than a dozen offering to hook 'em up. 

Some people asked for help with student loans costing thousands of dollars ... others asked for less in tuition fees, books and other school supplies. Nicki was pretty thorough in her questioning why these folks really needed the money.

We checked in with some of the lucky beneficiaries who told us Nicki has already started to send the money. She asked for bank info through the DMs, and one person we spoke with said he already got $500 from Minaj.

By the way, Nicki says she might open up the vault again in a month or 2 ... so, get those report cards ready! 

Mike Huckabee Cinco de Mayo Plan Salsa and Speedy Gonzales

5/5/2017 7:31 AM PDT

Mike Huckabee has a Cinco de Mayo plan that has people hotter than a bottle of Tapatio.

The former Arkansas Guv said on Twitter he's celebrating the day by downing "an entire jar of hot salsa and watching old Speedy Gonzales cartoons and speak[ing] Spanish all day."

It took about a second for a torrent of hate to be directed Huckabee's way. One person wrote, "Your attempts at humor fail almost as miserably as your attempts to run for President."

Another person wrote, "Everywhere you go you should wish everyone a blessed day in Spanish by saying 'Soy Pendejo'" ... translation ... I'm an idiot.

This one's our fav. 

Kim Zolciak Unfollow If Ya Don't Like BJ Jokes About My Daughter

5/4/2017 11:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak was joking when she said her daughter, Brielle, would trade oral sex -- in fewer words -- to meet John Legend, but if you didn't know it was a joke ... Kim says you can kick rocks.

Kim hit up Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen, Wednesday on Twitter about his upcoming Atlanta show. Naturally, several of their followers thought her joke went too far, or maybe she'd been hacked.

But Kim tells us it was all in jest, and if you regularly follow her and Chrissy, you would know that's just their sense of humor. She added, "If you can't take a joke feel free to unfollow."

So we have to ask ...

The Chainsmokers Crash Chi-Town Senior Prom

4/30/2017 6:58 AM PDT

The Chainsmokers gave a class of seniors in Chicago a gigantic surprise when the boyz crashed their prom.

The DJ'ing duo played a surprise set Saturday night for Chi-Town's Huntley High School at  at the Hyatt Regency hotel, right after their concert across the street at the Allstate Arena.

Turns out the performance was pre-planned -- and free if you can believe it. Some kid from the school had contacted their management a couple weeks before to schedule the "impromptu" show.  Most of the kids at the prom had no idea they would show.

However it came to be ... they rocked the house. 

Barack Obama Finally Disses Trump ... Tweet Storms Ain't the Answer!

Barack Obama took his first shot at his predecessor since inauguration day, lightly jabbing President Trump's speedy Twitter fingers ... and reportedly made a ton of money while doing it.

The diss came Thursday in NYC while the ex-prez was speaking to a crowd of A&E Network's advertisers. While presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin interviewed Obama, she asked how he handled frustrating moments in the White House.

Barack coolly replied, "For starters, by not having a Twitter account."

It was an expensive joke for A&E ... which according to the NY Post, paid Obama $400k for the speaking engagement. He's reportedly making that same amount to speak at an upcoming Health conference put on by Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald.

Michelle's no slouch herself ... she spoke Thursday at the AIA Conference on Architecture in Florida. Not to mention the huge advances both she and Barack got for their memoirs.

Make money money, make money money ...

'Silicon Valley' Star I'm Not Sarah, But Thanks for the Penis Pic, Dude!

4/25/2017 3:32 PM PDT

"Silicon Valley" star Amanda Crew got an eyeful of some guy's junk when she checked her text messages ... but her cool chick reaction made his day.

Amanda says the strange schlong came in the middle of a string of texts from a guy who thought he was texting someone named Sarah. He started, "Hey sexy girl. Can't wait to see you again."

Then came the pecker shot. Amanda let him down easily, and then posted the full exchange. She was nice enough to remove his phallus though.

The lesson: beware wrong numbers while sexting. Ya probably won't be as lucky as this guy.

Skrillex Yo, Elon Musk ... Thanks for Getting Me in Trouble with the Law!!!

4/20/2017 7:15 AM PDT

Skrillex was pulled over and handcuffed Wednesday night, and he blamed Elon Musk.

Law enforcement sources tell us the superstar DJ was driving on the Sunset Strip in his Tesla with music -- his own music -- blaring for all to hear.

Cops pulled him over to deal with the noise issue, but when they asked for ID, Skrillex came up empty-handed. That prompted the cops to order him out of the car and then slap on the cuffs.

Cops somehow figured out he was Skrillex and the car was his ... they uncuffed him, cited him for a noise violation and driving without proper ID, and let him go on his merry way.

Skrillex then took to Twitter and complained to Elon ... but it's really more like a Tesla endorsement.

  

Gisele Tweets Anti-Trump Protest As Brady Bails on White House

4/20/2017 7:04 AM PDT
Breaking News

It's looking like Gisele Bundchen may have been behind Tom Brady's decision to bail on the New England Patriots' White House celebration.

Just hours before the White House ceremony began Wednesday, Gisele promoted an anti-Trump protest called The People's Climate March -- saying, "On April 29th in Washington- D.C. - March for climate, jobs, and justice. To change everything, we need everyone."

It's no secret Gisele dislikes Donald Trump. The day before the election, someone on social media baited her, saying, "Gisele I heard you and tom were backing Trump! Is that true??" She fired back, "NO!"

Gisele clearly has an influence on her hubby. Right after the election, he muzzled himself about politics for what he obliquely called "a good decision ... made for our family."

For some reason few media outlets are reporting the obvious ... Donald Trump feels betrayed. The president has gone out of his way for years to sing Brady's praises, yet at Wednesday's ceremony he made no mention of Brady, despite calling out other players.

As one source said, this is now at feud level ... "When Donald Trump feels betrayed, it's over."  

Fair to say ... the relationship between Trump and Brady is kaput.
