Shia LaBeouf Spare Me the Art ... I Came to This Museum to Dance!!

5/17/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Shia LaBeouf made Helsinki's contemporary art museum, Kiasma, his total bitch ... by turning the place into his personal dance studio.

Shia was visiting the Factory of the Sun exhibit by Hito Steyerl when he decided to start dancing around like a maniac. According to another visitor there last week, the exhibit is a 23-minute video meant to be enjoyed while relaxing in lounge chairs. As he tends to, Shia took his own approach ... with a friend.

We're told Shia was part of another project at Kiasma called Alone Together ... which involved live streaming from a remote cabin in Finland to a cabin inside the museum. 

Looks like his desire to dance was more alluring.

5/16/2017 12:07 PM PDT

A cyclist riding in New Orleans got hit by a stray bullet from a shooting nearby ... and the whole thing was caught on video.

Christopher Weiss was cruising along with his cycling club in NOLA, when all of a sudden he shrieked in pain and had to pull over. As it turns out ... he'd been shot.

One of his fellow riders caught the entire encounter on their mounted bike camera, as another attended to his wound. It's pretty crazy -- you can see the exact moment he was hit ... even though you don't hear gunfire.

Luckily for Chris, it was only a minor flesh wound, and he's expected to make a full recovery.

Denmark Soccer Team Fined Fans Threw Dead Rats at Players

Breaking News

A Denmark soccer team was fined some serious cheese after fans pelted opposing players with dead rats ... giant dead rats. 

It all went down when the Brondby IF football club was playing rivals F.C. Copenhagen on April 17 -- and Brondby fans started throwing massive dead rodents at the opposing team.

Brondby immediately hit the rat-chuckers with a 1-year ban -- but now the Denmark Football Federation has stepped in to fine the club 150,000 kroner (roughly $17,000).

The question ... where did the fans even get the dead rats in the first place?? 

What's worse for Brondby, they didn't even win the game ... they lost 1-0.

Rats.

'ANTM' Bello Sanchez My Roommate from Hell Threatened to Cry 'Rape'

EXCLUSIVE


Former "America's Next Top Model" contestant Bello Sanchez thought he'd make some dough renting out his guest room, but says he's ended up with a nightmare roommate.

Bello says he rented the spare bedroom in his North Hollywood apartment to a woman named Shengyu Li who broke his furniture, and threw rotten food on his balcony and his cats. 

Things got so bad he claims Shengyu even threatened to scream rape. He says he called cops after one of her outbursts, and they suggested Bello get a restraining order -- so he did.

Now, a judge has ordered Shengyu to stay 100 yards away from Bello and his car ... which creates an issue, since they're roommates. The judge said Bello will have to go through a different court to kick her out.

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. 

NYC Modeling Agency Sued I Was Fired for 'Hating' Rap Music

EXCLUSIVE

Nicki MinajKanye West and Lil Wayne's music was too much for a modeling agency employee to take around the office, and he says he got fired when he bitched about it.

Talent manager Charles Short just sued his ex-employer, The Lions Model Management -- a big deal agency repping the likes of Irina ShaykStella Maxwell, Alexis Ren and Jessica Hart. According to docs, music was commonly played loudly around the office.

Charles, who's African-American, says he found the repeated use of the n-word in the songs offensive and inappropriate. In the suit, he says he complained once and it stopped briefly, but co-workers mocked him for "hating" rap ... and eventually it started blaring in the office once again. 

He fired off an angry email to his bosses in March, and was told him he was overreacting. He says execs told him, "Some of the models we represent use the n-word." The next day they told him, "It's best if you don't come in anymore."

Charles is suing for discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination. The agency had no comment.

Also, no word on which models are dropping n-bombs.

It was stank on a plane for the Toronto Raptors ... when 7-foot center Jonas Valanciunas blew a fart on the team jet and nearly killed all of his teammates.

P.J. Tucker captured the aftermath (asstermath) on video -- showing stars like Demar DeRozan, Kyle Lowry and others struggling to breathe.

But the funniest reaction is Serge Ibaka -- who looks genuinely pissed about the ass gas at 30,000 feet.

P.J. says the fart was so bad the team needs to burn the seat.

Still better than United ...

United Airlines Would-Be World's Biggest Rabbit Dies Onboard Flight to U.S.

4/25/2017 5:52 PM PDT

United Airlines is catching more flak this week after a rabbit set to become the world's biggest bunny died on-board one of its flights.

The 3-foot bunny named Simon reportedly died Monday night on a United flight from Heathrow to O'Hare -- yes, really.

The breeder, Annette Edwards, says Simon was healthy before boarding ... but was found dead in the plane's cargo hold upon landing. It was reportedly on its way to a new celeb owner in the States.

The rabbits cost around $6,400 to raise, and Edwards sells them for $640 a pop. Simon, who was 10 months old, was expected to surpass his 4-foot, 4-inch dad  ... and snag the record for world's biggest.

United -- which is already dealing with a PR nightmare -- reportedly said it was saddened to hear this news and that it's trying to determine why Simon died.

Seinfeld NYC Architect Nabbed in 'Operation Vandelay Industries'

4/20/2017 9:07 AM PDT

"Seinfeld" is back ... linked to a guy who's been indicted for passing himself off as an architect, and the investigation is called "Operation Vandelay Industries." Seriously.

New York's Attorney General announced a 3-charge indictment Thursday against a guy auspiciously named Paul Newman -- yes, Newman -- for allegedly defrauding construction companies, business owners and others by pretending to be a licensed and registered architect.

The AG says Newman drafted bogus designs for over 100 properties in 3 NY counties since 2010, making tens of thousands in the process. He was also the only employee at his company.

George Costanza would be proud.

Amazon's Jeff Bezos Cut the Crap on My Spaceship! No Bathroom Breaks

4/13/2017 1:39 PM PDT

Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos will someday let you fly into space on his shuttle -- for a price -- and only if your bowels and bladder are running on empty. 

Jeff announced the bathroom ban at the 33rd annual Space Symposium. He was talking about his Blue Origin private spaceflight company, and shockingly said ... there would be no bathroom break requests, or anything to deal with vomiting during the 40-minute flight. 

As he put it, "Go to the bathroom in advance. The whole thing, from boarding until you’re back on the ground, is probably 40 or 41 minutes. So you’re going to be fine."

Pretty ballsy game plan by Bezos. Of course, he won't be on cleanup duty.

United Airlines Another On-board Attack By a Scorpion!!

4/13/2017 8:57 AM PDT

Another attack on a United Airlines flight, and this time it was a scorpion that got its revenge on a passenger.

Richard Bell was on a flight from Houston to Calgary Sunday when a scorpion reportedly fell from an overhead bin and stung him. The flight crew contacted a doctor on the ground for medical advice.

United says his injuries were non-life threatening and medical personnel took care of Bell when he landed in Calgary.

No word on how United plans to make good.

International Church of Cannabis Praising the Most High Starting 4/20 Because ... Duh

4/12/2017 4:44 PM PDT

Weed lovers/worshipers now have a church to call home, and naturally ... it's in Denver, and of course ... it's opening April 20.

Elevation Ministries -- a Colorado-based religious org -- announced the launch of the International Church of Cannabis, which will be a "spiritual home to adults who seek to become the best version of themselves" ... with bud.

Congregation members call themselves Elevationists, and their mission statement sounds right on point: deepening and accelerating one's spiritual journey of self-discovery. Again, with bud.

One more nug ... the chapel is 113 years old and was recently renovated with paintwork from Kenny Scharf -- who's featured at the Guggenheim. So, it's a classy joint, if you will.

2 Chainz is going to be in town that weekend, and we're told the church is hoping he comes to worship. Chances are high, we're thinking.

Let the choir sing ... Puff, puff, pass. Amen. 

Wall Street Statue Creator 'Fearless Girl' Statue Is Messing with My Bull! Wants NYC to Get the Horns

4/12/2017 1:50 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

The guy who created Wall Street's "Charging Bull" says the neighboring "Fearless Girl" statue is screwing with his art, and he's demanding NYC pay him for his trouble.

Sculptor Arturo Di Modica is really pissed about the location of "Fearless Girl" and fired off a pretty threatening letter to Mayor Bill de Blasio. In the letter, obtained by TMZ, he says he was never consulted about the new art piece, despite the fact it's clearly capitalizing on its proximity to the 'Bull.'

He believes she was made out of bronze to make her seem like she's packaged with the 'Bull.' Arturo's not down with that because he says it now seems like his 'Bull' is attacking a child.

Furthermore, Arturo notes the people behind 'FG' know they're taking advantage of his art piece because their original promotion said where she was placed "made her impossible to ignore."

He wants her immediately moved and he wants the city to pay him an undetermined amount in damages. Arturo says he wants to settle this amicably, but we smell lawsuit.

As for Bill de Blasio -- he's making it clear he stands behind "Fearless Girl." And that's no bull.
