Manchester United dedicated their Europa League title to the 22 people who died in the arena attack earlier this week.

Man U just beat Ajax 2-0 to win the title (it's a big deal) ... and Paul Pogba, the team's star player, said the win was for the deceased victims.

"We went out focused to win and we won for Manchester and the country," ... "We played for the people who died."

There was a moment of silence before the game, and Ajax and Man U both wore black armbands in support of the victims of the attack.

Put another feather in Michelangelo's cap -- dude got the First Lady to hold President Trump's hand.

Melania and the Prez held hands under Michelangelo's "The Last Judgment" fresco above the altar of the Sistine Chapel.

The First Couple toured the landmark Wednesday during their visit with Pope Francis.

The momentous occasion comes after Melania twice denied her husband earlier this week, when he reached for her hand in public. First in Israel and then when they landed in Rome.

The Lord works in mysterious ways.

Pics of what appear to be the remnants of the backpack bomb that exploded in the foyer of Manchester Arena have surfaced ... and they show the nuts, screws and trigger used to kill 22 people and injure 59.

You see pieces of the blue Karrimor backpack -- where the bomb was placed, and what appears to be the trigger switch ... found in the bomber's left hand. There's a 12-volt, lead acid battery, the power source.

The photos give a sense of the bomb's power ... it was the deadliest terror attack in the UK since 2005.

Laird Hamilton Sharks Sniff Out Women On Periods (Science Be Damned)

5/24/2017 12:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Surfing legend Laird Hamilton has some simple, and possibly controversial, shark advice -- if you're a woman and you're on your period, stay outta the water ... 'cause you're gonna get bit.

We got Laird in Malibu, naturally, and asked him about the rash of shark sightings on SoCal beaches lately. He downplayed the danger ... well, unless you're a woman.

Look, Laird's like the closest thing to a real-life Aquaman -- it's rare to catch him on land -- so he qualifies as an expert on water activities. He also did NOT seem to be kidding about these tips for avoiding sharks.

That being said ... we can't find any scientific studies to back up some of what he's saying here. So, you might wanna take it with a grain of sea salt.

On the other hand ...

Jamie Foxx Oprah Saved Me From Alcohol

5/24/2017 12:33 PM PDT

Jamie Foxx was on a fast track to blowing his career after he made the movie "Ray" ... and Oprah told him so and scared him straight.

The Academy Award-winning actor went on "The Howard Stern Show" and confessed he was drinking and partying way too much back in 2005 when Oprah staged what amounts to an intervention.

O called him and told Jamie straight-up he was ruining his career, saying, "All of this gallivanting and all this kind of s**t that's not what you want to do. I want to take you somewhere."

Jamie met Oprah at Quincy Jones' house after the call for a come-to-Jesus moment, where Sidney Poitier and other black Hollywood actors were on hand to push Jamie toward more sober and responsible living.

Unclear whether he went to rehab, but whatever he did worked. Jamie went on to win the Best Actor Oscar for "Ray."

The Joker Look-Alike Busted Allegedly Pointed Gun at Drivers

5/24/2017 12:48 PM PDT

The Joker has been arrested ... again ... this time well outside the Gotham City limits.

29-year-old Lawrence Patrick Sullivan -- whose face is tatted up like Batman's archenemy -- was busted in Miami Tuesday after allegedly pointing a loaded gun at drivers passing an apartment complex.

Responding officers say they found Sullivan with a loaded Smith & Wesson handgun in his pocket. Cops were responding to multiple calls earlier in the day about an armed man who resembled the Joker.

He was booked for carrying a concealed firearm, and bail was set for $5,000.

Stand down, Bruce Wayne.

Live Nation Offers Refunds For England Concerts

5/24/2017 11:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Live Nation is sympathetic to people who bought tickets for concerts in England, offering them refunds if they're too scared to attend ... TMZ has learned.

Sources at Live Nation tell us refunds will be available for UK concerts featuring Katy Perry, Iron Maiden, KISS, Robbie Williams, Phil Collins, Depeche Mode, and James Arthur. BTW, Senator Bernie Sanders also has a show scheduled at 02 Academy Brixton, and it's sold out.

Our sources say Live Nation has not made a decision on refunds for other countries, but they are having discussions at offices worldwide ... and they expect to come up with a policy soon.

The decision to refund tickets in England is partly because of the attack at the Ariana Grande concert and partly because the Prime Minister has made it clear ... another attack seems imminent.

One Live Nation source tells TMZ, "We've gotten about a thousand media calls but very few consumer calls asking for refunds."

Dani Mathers Convicted in Body Shaming Case

5/24/2017 11:02 AM PDT
Breaking News

Former Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers has a choice ... either go to jail or do some hard labor, as her punishment for secretly taking a pic of an elderly woman in a gym locker room and then shaming her on social media.

Mathers was in court Wednesday and copped a plea in her criminal invasion of privacy case. The judge told Mathers she could pick door #1 or door #2.

Door #1: 45 days in jail and 36 months probation.

Door #2: 30 days graffiti removal ... again with 36 months probation.

She chose door #2.

You'll recall Dani took a pic of a naked, 71-year-old woman at an LA Fitness and then posted the pic on Snapchat with caption, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

The judge didn't lecture Dani ... it was all business.

Ariana Grande Concerts Canceled at Least Through June 5

5/24/2017 10:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande's concerts have been canceled until June 5 and maybe longer, until her team figures out how to address new security concerns.

Grande's management confirms the story TMZ broke, telling us, "The Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost."

Ariana's team has cancelled the London O2 shows this week and all shows through her scheduled Switzerland concert a week from Monday.  

As we reported, Ariana is devastated by the terrorist bombing after her concert. She's currently with her mom in Boca Raton.

Here is the full statement from Ariana's management: "Due to the tragic events in Manchester the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost."

"The London O2 shows this week have been cancelled as well as all shows thru June 5 in Switzerland. We ask at this time that we all continue to support the city of Manchester and all those families affected by this cowardice and senseless act of violence."

"Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together. Thank you."

Amber Portwood Meets with Vivid, Porn Talks Begin

5/24/2017 10:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-"Teen Mom" Amber Portwood is ready for the next stage of her career -- and it's looking like it could be in porn, because she's met with porn giant Vivid Entertainment.

Sources connected to negotiations tell us Amber and her boyfriend, Matt Baier, met with Vivid honcho Steven Hirsch in L.A. on May 8. We're told Hirsch had reached out to Amber in the past, and since she was already in town for the MTV Movie & TV Awards ... she decided to have the sit-down.

It's unclear if she's signed on the dotted line yet, but ya don't have to be a rocket scientist to know why Hirsch wanted this meeting. Vivid's made a bundle with its Farrah Abraham movies, and since Amber's always been one the most popular "Teen Mom" chicks ... it totally makes sense.

Amber and Matt tell us, "The meeting with Steven and Vivid was very professional and low key." They wouldn't say if a deal is done. Ditto for Hirsch ... who would only confirm he had the meeting.

Something tells us ... we've seen this movie before.


Scott Disick Having a Bella Good and Wet Time

5/24/2017 9:54 AM PDT

Scott Disick and Bella Thorne didn't wait long to pack on the PDA in Cannes -- after all, they have a lot of catching up to do with Kourtney Kardashian and her new guy.

Bella got soaking wet in the pool, fully clothed, then settled into Scott's lap Wednesday at their resort. They were also snuggling in a day bed.

The Lord's been hangin' with the young actress since last week, and decided to jet off to Cannes together Monday ... AFTER Kourt and Younes were already there.

We highly doubt any double dating, but doesn't mean they won't run into each other.
