Jennifer Lopez looks amazing grinding her ass on Iggy Azalea’s in their new music video “Booty” ... but is it just a desperate cry for attention?
Scratch that -- it IS a cry for attention ... and it's working.
More Fries for Me
9/19/2014 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Now that Mama June's given him the ole heave ho, Sugar Bear slipped off his ring and sought the comfort of an old friend today in Georgia.
Suge was outside the 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' family home sans wedding ring, but he did have the male version of bon bons and boxed wine -- a fountain soda and fries from McDonald's ... supersized, of course.
If he's looking for a silver lining -- nobody likes sharing their fries, right?
Bachelorhood has its privileges.
I Gotta Have 'En Vogue' Again
'Cause I'm Broke As a Joke
9/20/2014 3:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Singer Maxine Jones -- who was kicked out of En Vogue two years ago -- is blaming her old band mates for her massive debt and bankruptcy.
Jones was ordered by a judge last year to stop using the En Vogue name ... which led to her filing for bankruptcy. She said she was over $100K in the red.
In her bankruptcy docs, Jones listed her debts -- including $212K for her house, $22K in CA taxes, $17K in lawyers' fees ... and $539 to Victoria's Secret -- because a girl's still gotta look good.
Jones said she brings in about $3,473 a month -- but not enough to cover her monthly expenses.
So now Jones has gone back to court ... she's filed an appeal -- asking a judge to let her use the En Vogue name again ... so she can book gigs and pay off some of her debts.
Awakens From Three Day Coma
9/19/2014 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
August Alsina's condition was much more serious than his camp initially let on -- the singer was in a coma for 3 days after fainting on stage in NYC ... but he is finally awake.
August posted a gnarly photo of himself Friday morning after regaining consciousness ... thanking friends and family for their "prayers and concerns." In the pic, his head is heavily bandaged and an oxygen mask is strapped to his face.
TMZ broke the story ... BET's Best New Artist of the Year collapsed and fell off a stage Monday night. The next day, Alsina's rep said he was suffering from seizures and was in ICU.
Alsina's rep now confirms he'd been in a medically induced coma since Tuesday, and on a breathing machine.
I'M NOT GOING TO RESIGN
Owners Support Me
9/19/2014 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Roger Goodell says he will NOT resign as NFL Commissioner ... and believes he has the full support of the NFL owners.
Goodell addressed the media at a news conference in NYC -- and for the most part, reiterated that he screwed up in the handling of the Ray Rice case and vows to do better.
"Over the past several weeks, we have seen all to much of the NFL doing wrong, that starts with me."
Goodell believes he should stay in power because "I acknowledged my mistakes."
When asked if he felt the league supports him staying as Commish, Goodell said ... "I believe I have the support of the owners. That is clear to me."
But the best part of the event, when Benjy from the "Howard Stern Show" started yelling and screaming ... and when he was dragged away by security he yelled, "DON'T PUT ME IN THE ELEVATOR!!!"

Kicks Him to the Curb
9/19/2014 10:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mama June and Sugar Bear Thompson are done -- separated -- because she's convinced he's been cheating on her ... sources tell TMZ.
We're told Mama June has repeatedly caught Sugar Bear trolling on online dating sites. One of them is plentyoffish.com, in which Sugar Bear -- with the handle Georgiafighter31054 -- says "i love to hunt fish and ride 4wheelers and have a good time. i luve muddy Boggs and love to ride in the mudd."
Mama June has stopped wearing her wedding ring (technically the couple was never married, but they did have a commitment ceremony).
Our sources say Mama June plans on taking the kids and moving out -- once the latest round of filming "Here Comes Boo Boo" is done ... so she can be closer to her relatives. She hasn't fully decided on the move.
We're told the producers of the show are scrambling to try and figure out what's next.
June and Sugar Bear tell TMZ, "Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship. We are taking things day by day but regardless of what happens the girls will always be our #1 priority. We want to thank ya'll for your support."

Screw the Sex Tape
Simulated Sex w/ JLO WAAAY Better!
9/19/2014 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Iggy Azalea is one big-ass contradiction ... she's running from a sex tape her former BF made, but she just dropped one of the hottest, most sexual videos EVER with Jennifer Lopez.
Just watch and behold the video -- "Booty." Whatever your sexual orientation, you will be turned on. Seriously.
Iggy and JLo grind crotches and slap each other's asses ... with commitment.
It's also very wet ... after they oil up. BTW ... there's also music, but seriously, who cares?
Sorry Vivid Entertainment ... JLo beat you to the punch.
Jamie Foxx & 2 Chainz
Major Party Buzz
New Song Copies Old Song
9/19/2014 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
6:53 P.M. PDT -- According to a rep, "DJ Mustard did not grant any rights to a third party to exploit the recording, "Party Ain't A Party, " and, accordingly, this claim against DJ Mustard has absolutely no merit."
Jamie Foxx callously crushed the dreams of an up-and-coming singer ... by jacking his song -- "Party Ain't a Party" -- so Foxx could selfishly resurrect his own music career, according to a new lawsuit.
Foxx released the song -- featuring 2 Chainz -- as a single this week ... "after being absent from the music scene for over four (4) years," according to court docs obtained by TMZ.
Just one problem -- it's the EXACT same song recorded by a young artist named J Rand a year earlier! Seriously, listen ... the ONLY difference between the two tracks are the singers.
Nontra Records says the rip-off is blatant and shameless -- because J Rand's version and Foxx's version were both produced by the same guy -- DJ Mustard.
Nontra's suing all 3 guys -- Foxx, 2 Chainz and DJ Mustard.

This post appeared -- briefly -- on Joan's Facebook page Friday morning ... clearly the result of a pre-negotiated deal with Apple. Someone pulled a Ron Popeil ... set it and forget it.
The post was removed pronto.

Super-Coolly Subdues Home Intruder
9/19/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Keanu Reeves had his chance to reprise his famous line from "The Matrix" -- "I know Kung Fu" -- because we've learned a woman broke into his house while he was sleeping and plunked herself on his library chair.
Reeves was snoozing at 4 AM Monday when he heard sounds coming from his library ... yes, Ted "Theodore" Logan has a library.
The actor got up, walked in and saw a woman in her mid-40's sitting in his chair, not uttering a peep.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Keanu calmly approached her and began speaking to her. She explained she was there to meet him. He very calmly called 911 and obtusely told the dispatcher cops needed to roll quick.
Police came and took the woman into custody. She was taken for a psych evaluation.
It's another amazing story of an obsessed fan gaining entry into a celeb's house. It recently happened to Sandra Bullock ... the fan ended up at her bedroom door as she was sleeping. Interesting ... that's Keanu's "Speed" co-star.
Keanu lives in an area in the Hollywood Hills tour bus drivers call "Hunk Alley." Leo DiCaprio is his neighbor. Tobey Maguire used to live next door to Keanu. The drivers call out Keanu's house -- which is built like a fort, so it's just amazing someone broke in.
Here's what's even more amazing. Apparently he didn't set his alarm.
I'll Take Detroit Over Vegas
Because They Let Me Play Blackjack!
9/19/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ben Affleck may not be welcome at the blackjack tables in Vegas, but Detroit can't afford to be that picky ... so he set up shop there!
We got this pic of Ben at the blackjack table at MotorCity Casino Hotel last Friday ... where Ben played high-stakes games for a few hours.
TMZ broke the story ... Affleck was blackjack banned for life at the Hard Rock in Vegas for counting cards. Ben says Hard Rock can join the crowd, because he's persona non grata at blackjack tables in numerous other Vegas casinos.
But not so in Detroit. Our spies say Ben had $30K worth of chips at one time. We don't know the bottom line at the end of the evening.
Affleck's in town shooting the new "Batman V Superman" movie and was spotted at the MotorCity. The actor -- who says he's not a compulsive gambler -- was also at the casino Saturday.
We're assuming he was counting cards. Come on, Ben ... Detroit needs that money!

Fallon Fox Has Unfair Advantage
But I'd Still Beat Her Ass!
9/19/2014 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ronda Rousey tells TMZ Sports ... she believes transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox has an "unfair advantage" over naturally born women -- but she'd still kick her ass anyway.
Rousey was at LAX when we asked about Fallon -- a post-op transgender who was born a man and now fights with the women.
FYI -- Fox has won her last two fights ... and beat her last opponent so badly, she reportedly suffered a concussion, a broken orbital bone and required 7 staples in her head (video below).
Rousey -- the reigning female UFC champ -- says she's done a lot of research on the situation ... and ultimately feels Fox needs to be fighting with the men -- especially with the damage she's inflicting.
But when we asked if Ronda would be afraid to get in the Octagon against Fox, Rousey makes it clear ... she fears NO ONE ... Y chromosome or no Y chromosome.
I Can't Drive 55 ...
Or Even 5, For That Matter

Chris Brown suffered the ultimate vehicular humiliation Thursday ... as he tried to act super-cool in a classic whip that couldn't get off the dime.
A full crew and huge crowd gathered as Brown prepared to shoot his music video ... the singer cruising down Figueroa in L.A. in a super-sweet '60 Chevy Impala.
The engine repeatedly turned over but there was no ignition, as a clearly embarrassed Brown stoically turned the key ... with rapper Compton Menace riding shotgun.
Eventually ... the whip moved ... but oh so slowly.
