'South Park'

Takes on Bill Cosby ...

Baby There's an Assault Outside

12/11/2014 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

South Park Bill Cosby Taylor Swift Song"South Park" took a slightly-pervy sounding Christmas song, infused the Bill Cosby allegations, and the result was a little creepy and kinda funny.

A hologram-version of Cosby attempts to keep Taylor Swift in his home by singing "Baby It's Cold Outside" ... and eventually holo-Cos offers her a drink ... just like many of his accusers say he did to them. 

Later in the episode, Cosby and Swift are seen getting closer -- but, as you can imagine, it's totally a one-sided affair.

Check out the clip ... there's even a Jell-O reference. A rapey one, but it's there.

Elizabeth Taylor is headed to court -- even though she’s very dead -- because a famous gay club and its former employee are fighting over her iconic portrait.

TMZ broke the story ... The Abbey's former VIP manager Jesse Davis has been fighting the club to get back his painting of the late actress. He claims it was a personal gift from Taylor.

Now Davis is suing The Abbey because he says it refuses to hand over the Liz portrait. In the docs, Davis says at least one wasted barfly took the piece off the wall and danced with it. He's concerned the portrait -- which he says is worth $75K -- will be damaged.

Davis does NOT mention wanting the portrait. Instead, his lawsuit only seeks financial compensation -- including the value of the painting and then some.

The Abbey had no comment about the lawsuit. 

Like Liz said, "It's not the having, it's the getting."

[Pics]

Here's Usher charging his iPhone at Art Basel in Miami ... using a battery pack jammed inside of a woman's vagina. 

Usher paid $20 in exchange for 10 minutes of juice Wednesday night. A crowd of distinguished art enthusiasts stood by and watched the entire thing. 

The woman wanted to show how humans have become dependent on technology and she felt a super-charged vagina would help make her point.  We totally get it. 

Don't worry, the vagina was equipped with a second battery pack ... in case anyone had a Droid.

Fun Fact: The woman tells TMZ she could take two phones at the same time. 

Art -- it's deep.

Shannon Briggs

Hangin' Out With 'The Last Dragon'

... I Got The Glow

11/30/2014 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112414_shannon_briggs_instagram_launch Wladimir Klitschko might be in trouble ... 'cause his number one enemy Shannon Briggs is hanging out with an '80s movie star who might posses a weapon capable of dethroning the champ.

The all powerful "Glow."

Briggs spent some time recently with Taimak -- that's right, the dude who played Leroy Green in the urban Kung Fu classic "The Last Dragon" -- and says the two worked on some "deep breathing techniques."

Yeah right fellas ... this was a "Glow" session.

If you're not aware, "The Glow" is an ancient fighting weapon that can only be achieved when mind, body and soul become one.

It covers your whole body in badassness and helped Leroy Green defeat Sho'nuff ... and now Briggs might have this (entirely fictitious) weapon at his disposal.

Sorry Wlad, it's all over. Check out "The Glow" in action below.

Shia LeBeouf

I Was Raped

During Famous Art Show

11/28/2014 10:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1128-shia-labouf-art-wm-2
Shia LeBeouf
says he was raped by a fan during his famous #IAMSORRY art event in Los Angeles this year ... and his girlfriend was standing just outside the room when it happened. 

LeBeouf told Dazed ... the woman walked into the private room -- where he was having silent one-on-one interactions with fans -- and whipped his legs for 10 minutes, then stripped off his clothes and "proceeded to rape" him.

Shia says it happened on Valentine's Day while his girlfriend was waiting in line to visit. Apparently, everyone in line was buzzing about the sexual encounter ... because Shia says his GF came in looking for an explanation, but he couldn't answer since he was supposed to be silent.

He doesn't say if he reported the alleged rape to police.

As part of the Dazed story ... Shia sat down for an hour with the reporter, but they both remained silent while wearing GoPro cams. It's awkward to say the least. The Q&A part was done beforehand by email.

Buyer beware ... unless you're into that kinda thing.

Creed's Scott Stapp

Criticizing Obama

Caused My Downfall

11/27/2014 12:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112714_scott_stapp_radio_launch
Scott Stapp believes President Obama sic'd the IRS on him as revenge for pot shots he took at the prez during a 2012 interview -- which is why he's damn near broke now. 

The former Creed front man spoke with the Roz and Mocha Show on KISS 92.5 Thursday morning in Toronto ... and claimed his accounts were compromised within two months of the Fox News interview.

Stapp adds, "I believe the IRS situation is definitely a result of me expressing my dissatisfaction with President Obama. Absolutely, 100 percent."

As we previously reported ... the singer claims his estranged wife claims he's delusional and is trying to get him committed. Believing POTUS hangs on his every word doesn't exactly help his case.

Check out the interview ... Scott talks about how much money he has left ... and whether his former band mates have reached out to help.

The company that placed the ad -- Beverly Hills Egg Donation -- presumably has a client who wants their kid to be an outlier.

The ad is specific ... white, tall, slender, the right cheekbones and forehead. Anyone with the right stuff can make $30K for 2 cycles.

Period.

EXCLUSIVE

Redneck Island Nipple Ring Beer BongA group of rednecks just took beer bonging to a whole new level ... by introducing a nipple ring into the mix -- and the results are extremely uncomfortable.

Lucas Albert -- a cast member on the upcoming season of CMT's "Redneck Island" -- caught the attention of another housemate for having a nipple ring ... and that's when things got weird.

Eventually they decide to pour liquid gold into a beer bong by attaching the can to his nipple ring ... and well, we've already explained too much.

So just watch ... and don't try this at home -- unless you're a redneck, obviously.

'Pregnant Man'

I GPS'd My Ex

But I Thought It Was Legal!

11/21/2014 1:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Pregnant Man Stalking
Thomas Beatie believes he had every right to track his ex-wife ... so says his current fiancee, who insists the famous "Pregnant Man" LEGALLY GPS'd the woman's whereabouts.

Amber Beatie tells TMZ ... after Nancy Beatie threatened to take off with Thomas' kids ... he secretly placed the GPS tracker on the car she was driving.

We're told Thomas did his own legal research and concluded GPSing her was fair game under Arizona law. He put the tracker on 2 years ago but she didn't discover it until recently.

Turns out he was right ... he was allowed to put the device on the car 2 years ago because at the time he was the registered owner.  

But Thomas transferred title to Nancy more than a year ago, and at that point cops say keeping the device on the whip is plain 'ol criminal stalking ... which is why he was arrested.

Beatie was released from jail Friday morning.

Charles Manson's Wedding

He Can Make Out

And Dine from Vending Machines

11/19/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1118-manson-wedding-fa-tmz-02Charles Manson will be allowed to make out with his bride, but he will never get to second base ... according to prison honchos.

Officials from the California Dept. of Corrections tell TMZ ... Manson's upcoming prison wedding next month at Corcoran State Prison will be G-rated and Spartan. There's no time limit on the first kiss but prison officials will cut it off before it becomes foreplay.  

We're told Manson will not be restrained during the ceremony but he won't be allowed physical contact with 26-year-old Afton Elaine Burton other than locking lips and holding hands during the ceremony.   FYI ... the officials wouldn't say if tongue was fair game. 

The murderer can't wear a tux -- he'll get hitched in Corcoran couture, but the bride can wear what she wants. 

As we reported, the bride and groom can invite up to 10 guests who are not inmates, but they won't be feasting on salmon. The meal will be catered by the company that provides Cup-O-Noodles with the push of a button. The good news ... there are pastries in the vending machines.

And, as we told you, Manson will not get conjugal visits.

This is the wedding where if the groom breaks a glass, he'll go into solitary.

Charles Manson

I'm Gonna Have a Killer Wedding

11/17/2014 2:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1117-charles-manson-and-star-mansondirect-dot-com-01
Charles Manson knows a thing or two about "till death do us part," so he's taking the marriage plunge.

The man convicted of slaughtering Sharon Tate and 6 others got a marriage license earlier this month. The 80-year-old murderer is marrying 26-year-old Afton Elaine Burton, who runs a Manson fan website.

Burton says the ceremony will go down next month behind prison walls. They can invite up to 10 free people.



There won't be any little Mansons running around ... he's not entitled to conjugal visits. Manson does have several grown children. Harvey interviewed one of his sons, back in his KCBS days.

This time the ball and chain are both real and metaphoric.
