George W. Bush Kanye Picked a Punk to Play Me
6/25/2016 5:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
In case there was any question, a rep for the 43rd Prez tells TMZ, "In case there was any doubt ... that is not President Bush."
The rep added it should be obvious the guy in the "Famous" video is a fake Bush, adding, "He [W] is in much better shape."
Picking W is an interesting choice ... you'll recall during Hurricane Katrina, Kanye ranted, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."
WOW ... what a CRAZY transformation!

Young Dro No Jail Time For 'Borrowed' Car
6/26/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Young Dro was staring down up to 10 years in prison for stealing a friend's car, but caught a huge break when the judge handed him 3 years probation.
The "F.D.B." rapper pled guilty in May to one count of theft by conversion ... thereby scoring probation instead of incarceration.
The case was pretty absurd ... Dro said he borrowed a friend's car and promised to pick her up after she was done with her shift at the Pink Pony strip club in ATL. He never showed, but cops found the car later with marijuana and a stolen gun in it.
In addition to probation, Dro also has to pay a $1,000 fine.

6/24/2016 8:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West just blew the minds of thousands of people at The Forum in Inglewood, and he's about to blow yours with these images of naked people in the same bed ... and he insists it's the real deal.
Right out of the gate, we should say a rep for Donald Trump insists it's not him. But some of the images look eerily like the celebs.
Kanye premiered his music video for his song, "Famous" and the venue was packed to the gills.
The video is shot like a sex tape, with close up shots of various women, including a topless Caitlyn Jenner ... or at least that's who he said it was.
Could it really be George W. Bush? And what's the deal with Rihanna laying next to Chris Brown?

Johnny Manziel's Dad My Son's a Druggie He Belongs in Jail
6/25/2016 7:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Manziel's father has thrown in the towel on saving his son ... saying if he doesn't get locked up soon ... he'll probably die.
Paul Manziel told ESPN, "He's a druggie. It's not a secret that he's a druggie."
Manziel's father realizes his son's wealth is driving his addiction, and says, "there are two things that are going to happen: He's either going to die, or he's going to figure out that he needs help. But we've done everything that we can do."
Paul has addressed his son's addiction in the past ... but after the former QB's attorney accidentally sent a text message to the media discussing drug habits ... Dad clearly had it.
As for what Paul thinks Johnny needs to get clean ... he says, "I hate to say it, but I hope he goes to jail. I mean, that would be the best place for him."

BET Awards Weekend LAPD On Alert for Sizzurp Sippin'
6/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The LAPD officers just got schooled on sizzurp, aka lean ... but the department swears there's nothing racial about it.
Law enforcement sources tell us LAPD brass has held meetings with cops to go over the basics when it comes to codeine. We're told they've been briefed on how users mix the syrup, how it looks, smells and most importantly ... to be on the lookout for double cups.
The brass insisted it has nothing to do with this weekend's BET Awards show ... which will draw scores of rappers. They say cops will not specially hunt for double cups ... but officers will arrest anyone if they happen to notice during normal patrol.
Interestingly ... one of the LAPD divisions where a meeting was held was near the BET venue in downtown L.A. But the Hollywood Division didn't have such a meeting, and that's where lots of the after-parties will go down. We're told Hollywood cops already know what's up.
