Darren Sharper Is a JOKE!!!
3/10/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Darren Sharper" is apparently becoming a slang term for raping a woman ... at least according to Arizona Cardinals defensive stud Darnell Dockett.
The 3-time Pro Bowler went on Twitter the other day and spelled it out ... writing:
"My boy just said 'Man I saw a girl so bad today I wish I had that DS for her.' I said what's DS? He said that Darren sharper."
Sharper has been charged with drugging and raping 2 women in Los Angeles ... and he's facing similar allegations in 4 other states, including Arizona.
One guy gave Dockett the "too soon" treatment on Twitter. What do you think?

Billionaire Warren Buffett didn't just go to see the Creighton Bluejays play the Villanova Wildcats yesterday ... he looked liked the biggest diehard fan in the building.
Buffett -- known as the "Oracle of Omaha," which is where Creighton is located -- was on hand as a guest of Creighton President Timothy Lannon.
Buffett even posed for pics before the game with the school's best player, Doug McDermott.

Quick, buy stock in Creighton.
Jason Garrett and Tony Romo
Hate + Hate =
3/9/2014 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The only way Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Tony Romo could become more hated by sports fans is if they ... oh, we don't know ... threw on a couple of Duke shirts and went to last night's Duke/North Carolina game.
Oh, would you look at that.
The only people who don't find this photo offensive are Yankees fans, Heat fans, Notre Dame fans and anyone who roots for King Joffrey Baratheon on "Game of Thrones," the Yellow King on "True Detective," and the zombies on "Walking Dead."
For what it's worth ... despite being cursed by the presence of Garrett and Romo, Duke beat UNC 93-81.

Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry are calling each other dirty bitches ... in a full-on feud that erupted over that kiss at Miley's L.A. concert last month.
You may recall ... Miley went in for the kiss as Katy sat in the front row. It looked like Miley was going in for some tongue, but Katy pulled away.
Now the feud.
Katy went on Australian TV and explained, "I just walked up to her to give her like a friendly girl kiss, you know, as girls do." Perry then explained how she was stunned when Miley went in for the kill, adding, "God knows where that tongue has been. We don't know. The tongue is so infamous!"
If Katy meant it as a joke, Miley isn't taking it that way, firing back on Twitter, "Girl if ur worried abt where tongues have been good thing ur ex boo is ur EX BOO cause we ALL know where THAT [tongue] been."
Are we bad for LOVING a good bitch fight?

A tiny woman somehow got into Justin Bieber's house Wednesday and found her way into a bedroom ... TMZ has learned.
It's a bizarre story. Just after 5 PM, the niece of the guy who is renting his Atlanta Estate to Justin called the cops and said she came home and found "an Asian female" sleeping in one of her bedrooms.
She called the cops and when they arrived they found 5'5", 110 lb Qianying Zhao waiting outside the home and she had quite the story. She said she had met Bieber on Twitter and was visiting him for a birthday party.
Sadly, she said she realized she was too late for the party so she decided to come to his house and wait for him. She said she found an open door and let herself in.
Zhao was arrested for criminal trespass and placed into "double-locked handcuffs" with her hands behind her back.
It's unclear if Justin was home at the time.
9:25 AM PT -- We just got the 911 call. It's pretty hilarious.
Cyber-Bullying Justin Bieber
You Should Be Ashamed Of Yourself!
3/5/2014 6:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
File This Under: "Pot Meet Kettle" ... 'cause alleged bullying victim Jonathan Martin went online last night to CYBER-BULLY Justin Bieber ... telling the pop star he's an EMBARRASSMENT.
Out of the blue, Martin went on Twitter and wrote: "Never be embarrassed of who you are ... Unless you're Justin Bieber."
Obviously, an attempt at a joke ... but not a great move coming from a guy who was just talking to a class about the effects of BULLYING earlier that day.
Also, don't forget ... Martin left the Miami Dolphins claiming several players were picking on him for no reason.
Martin followed up his tweet with an attempted explanation ... saying, "Don't get it twisted... Biebs is one of the most talented artists out there... He just makes some questionable decisions."
He's not the only one.
Family Party Turns Into Raging Warfare

Whitney Houston's son-in-law got his ass beaten by one of Whitney's nephews at a formal family gathering ... and it's all because of a long-simmering family feud ... TMZ has learned.
We're told Whitney's nephew, Gary Michael Houston, went nuclear on Bobbi Kristina's husband, Nick Gordon … allegedly SLAMMING him to the floor and pummeling his face -- accusing him of talking crap about the family.
Family sources tell us ... it all went down at a Sweet 16 party for Whitney's niece, Rayah. We're told it was a formal affair -- everyone in tuxes and long gowns -- but Nick showed up in a hoodie and knit cap and "lookin' like a thug."
Gary felt Gordon had insulted the family one too many times ... as soon as the party was over, he delivered the beat down. We're told it was a lopsided fight -- Nick didn't even get in a single punch.
The two are now sluggin' it out on Twitter. Gordon posted, "F*** all of em they've tried to fight me (Gary H) jealous ass n***a."
In response, Gary tweeted, "He still kind a sore from that last trip I sent him on smh .... I tried to tell him to buckle up lol."
Puts NBA Player On Blast
Laughs at Relationship, Says Kissing Sucked
3/2/2014 11:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
12:55 PM PT -- We spoke to Andre who tells us, "I found [Jennette's comments] funny. There's a lot of false info in there, but I'll be the mature person about the situation and let it die out."
Andre also posted a Vine video moments ago that seems to be a response to the story in which he says, "Sometimes you gotta live and learn by the mistakes you make. You gotta move on and keep pushing."
"iCarly" star Jennette McCurdy is kissing and telling in a big way about her short-lived "relationship" with NBA star Andre Drummond ... and according to Jennette, the kissing part SUCKED.
McCurdy appeared on Pete Holmes' podcast "You Made It Weird" and spilled her guts about her fling with 20-year-old Drummond.
Jennette didn't pull punches -- admitting she only heard about the guy after he repeatedly chose her as his "Woman Crush Wednesday" on Twitter -- and eventually agreed to talk to Drummond because he "seemed like a big deal."
Jennette says they had some early conversations that "gave [her] pause" but she decided to go out on some dates with him anyway.
McCurdy then describes their first kiss -- which went down after a laser tag date -- saying, "It just didn't go great ... no sparks. The mouths ... the shapes weren't right."
Still, they continued to hang out, McCurdy says ... and he was so into her, he bought her a necklace and got down on his knees during a dinner date and asked her to be his GF.
Even though she wasn't into it, she said yes ... only to break up with him on the phone a few days later.
You gotta listen to the whole podcast ... McCurdy seems to be laughing at Drummond the entire time -- painting him as this pathetic, immature guy who doesn't have a clue about how to court a woman.
But the relationship did start as a public event on social media ... so, fair for Jennette to go public with all the gory breakup details too?

Check this out ... TMZ Sports recently asked Kansas City Chiefs defensive stud Brandon Flowers to name his Top 3 favorite strip clubs in the country.

So, here's Brandon's official Strip Club Breakdown:
1) Onyx in Atlanta -- "I heard that one's pretty good"
2) Tootsies in Miami -- "I heard Tootsies has the best lobster tail and rice on earth."
3) 11 in Miami -- "It's a new club that's supposed to be pretty good so I'm looking forward to 'hearing' about that one."

Urges Senators to Get 'Knocked Up'
2/26/2014 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Seth Rogen testified before a Senate subcommittee Wednesday and pledged allegiance -- to "House of Cards."
Seth went to Capitol Hill to voice his support for legislation to increase funding for Alzheimer's research. Seth's mother-in-law suffers from the disease.
By congressional standards, Seth was hilarious ... and a little too hip for the room.
Safe to say Senator Tom Harkin, Chairman of the Senate Appropriations subcommittee, is not a big fan of "Knocked Up" ... but he was clearly amused.
Check out the video. Pretty funny.
