Call him the Black Bon Jovi ... because Shaquille O'Neal got on stage at a college bar at LSU this week and belted out "YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME" ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.
The Diesel hit up Fred's In Tigerland near the LSU campus Thursday night -- his old stomping ground -- when he decided he wanted to jump on stage with a local band and jam out to a rock song.
We're told ... Shaq told the band to "follow my lead" ... and then busted out some Jovi.
As you can see in the clip, the crowd went NUTS ... and Shaq jumped around on stage like a maniac while screaming the lyrics at the top of his lungs.
The best part -- we're told Shaq was dead sober for the whole thing ... not one drop of alcohol.
But we all know Shaq's comfortable when it comes to performing on stage ... right Kobe?

Disney Star Tiffany Thornton
Reconciles with Husband
After Child Abduction Drama
9/20/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Disney star Tiffany Thornton is back with the man she feared so much she fled into the dark of night with her kids ... TMZ has learned.
We're told Thornton and her hubby, Chris Carney, have reconciled ... moving into Chris' parents' house in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where his mom is the mayor.
We broke the story ... Chris filed a child stealing report with police back in May ... claiming Thornton had abducted their 2 young sons. Turned out ... Thornton fled to get away from her husband who went on violent drunken binges. It was so bad Chris' mom helped her escape.
So Chris has pledged to stop drinking and Tiffany is back -- though we're told she made him take a drug and alcohol test first.
We're also told Tiffany and Chris are getting counseling, so maybe things will work out.

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.
