Janet Jackson to Baby Eissa What Haven't I Done for You Lately? That's The Way Love Goes

2/19/2018 11:20 AM PST

Janet Jackson clearly believes in sticking to the mom-damentals of parenting -- which include pushing your own baby's stroller ... and carrying your little one around yourself.

Janet was spotted pushing around her 1-year-old son, Eissa, in London Monday as she joined some friends for lunch -- and even in the rain and all ... she was roughin' it.

We assume the singer has nannies on hand to help with some of the child care, especially since she's back to touring after giving birth last year, and has been pretty busy.

Still ... Janet appears to be quite hands-on as a mother, 'cause baby Eissa has accompanied her to lots of places lately. And Janet's usually the one carrying the kid around ... like here, here and here.

One thing he definitely can't ask in the future ... what did you ever do for me, ma?  

Kate Middleton Time Was Up for BAFTA Dress Change ... She's Preggo, After All

2/19/2018 10:18 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kate Middleton was fighting the clock when she put on her green gown for the BAFTA Awards -- instead of black -- and her pregnancy made a switch near impossible.

Royals expert Katie Nicholl -- who wrote the book, "Kate: The Future Queen" -- tells us the Duchess of Cambridge was in a "no-win situation" Sunday with her wardrobe choice. She was criticized for going against the suggested Time's Up all-black dress code -- but Nicholl says Kate's dress was likely pre-ordered months ago and custom-made with her pregnancy in mind.

Point is ... the dress would've been chosen way before the Time's Up's buzz began in late 2017, and would preclude a last-minute wardrobe change.

There's also this -- Nicholl says members of the Royal family are encouraged to avoid political statements. That could be at play, but taking a stand against sexual harassment -- as tons of celebs have during award season -- hardly seems like a controversial stance. 

So, we're going maternity dress issues for the win.

Kim Kardashian Kanye's Stock-ing Stuffers Have Made Me Even Richer!!!

2/19/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian's Christmas gift from Kanye West isn't going to stop the chorus from grousing she keeps getting richer for doing nothing, because in this case ... it's absolutely true.

As we reported, Ye hooked up his wife for Xmas with $100k of stock from 4 blue-chip companies -- Amazon, Apple, Disney and Adidas ... along with some more traditional stocking stuffers.

Since Kim scored the gifts, 2 of the 4 stocks -- Amazon and Adidas -- have continued to surge, and are up about $24k and $11k respectively. Kim's Disney stock is down almost $2k, and Apple dipped a bit as well.

All in all ... Kim's $400k portfolio is currently valued at $431,800 as of Friday's close.

Not bad at all for doing nothing and just watching the stocks grow.

Beyonce & Blue Ivy Keep Your Eyes On ... Us at the All-Star Game

2/19/2018 7:35 AM PST

Beyonce showed Blue Ivy how it's done in the selfie department during the NBA All-Star Game, but to be honest doesn't look like the kid needs any advice. 

Mother and daughter sat courtside Sunday evening at Staples Center along with grandma Tina Knowles, and her hubby, Richard Lawson. Looks like Jay-Z stayed home with the twins.

Even without Jay, there was no shortage of celebs -- like Dave Chappelle, Common, Cardi BJack Nicholson and many more ... packed the arena.

As for Blue, who's only 6, it's not her first rodeo. The kid had front row seats to last year's All-Star Game in New Orleans. Stole the show there, too.

Like mother, like daughter.

President Trump Blasts Oprah's '60 Minutes' Report ... Hopes She Runs for Prez

2/19/2018 6:32 AM PST
Breaking News

President Trump is ripping Oprah the journalist -- for her report on his first year in office -- but says he's looking forward to defeating Oprah the candidate.

Trump, apparently, changed the channel on his TV Sunday night just long enough to catch Oprah on "60 Minutes" doing a round table discussion with Michigan voters -- pro and anti-Trump. He wasn't impressed, and dismissed Oprah, who he used to know very well, as "insecure" ... and claimed her "questions were biased and slanted."

Trump added he hopes "Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated." Guessing he hasn't heard Oprah declare repeatedly that she's NOT running for Prez.

As for Oprah's report ... Trump's supporters definitely had their say. Maybe he didn't watch long enough. 

Happy President's Day!

Tomi Lahren Yes, Jesus & Prayer Will Stop Mass Shootings

2/19/2018 8:04 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tomi Lahren doubled down on her stance the Florida school shooting wasn't about guns ... it's about a lunatic who wouldn't have slaughtered 17 people if he had more religion in his life.

We got the FOX News contributor at LAX Sunday and asked her about Trump tweeting that the FBI could have thwarted Nikolas Cruz if it wasn't so focused on him and Russia. Tomi dodged that controversy, and stuck to her own social media crisis.

Tomi's getting a ton of backlash online for calling for Christians to pray more in the wake of the shooting, instead of talking about gun control. 

We'll say this ... she's sticking to her story. Backlash be damned. 

Mariah Carey Advice to Fergie ... Don't Listen to the Haters!

2/19/2018 6:06 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It ain't ALL hate for Fergie after that bizarre national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game -- with Mariah Carey dishing out some advice on how to deal with the negativity. 

A glammed up Mariah was leaving Sweet Chick on Fairfax Sunday evening -- when she gave Fergie one very simple tip. 

By the way, Mariah has some experience in this department ... the haters came out in force for her New Year's Eve performance a while back -- but it didn't seem to faze her. 

Aside from Mariah, Takeoff from Migos and NBA star Karl-Anthony Towns also had Fergie's back.

Not everyone has been so supportive ... "Saturday Night Live" star Leslie Jones hated it -- and judging by Draymond Green's face, he wasn't a fan either. 

Still haven't heard from Fergie yet -- but we'd LOVE to hear her thoughts on it. 

Stay tuned ... 

Ex-'LHHA' Star Althea Busted for Smacking Benzino ... In Front of Cops!!!

2/19/2018 6:56 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Benzino's baby mama, Althea Eaton, went upside his head during an argument Sunday night ... according to cops who witnessed it, and quickly arrested Althea.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... LAPD was called to Althea's home in the San Fernando Valley to check out a domestic dispute. We're told Althea wanted Benzino to get out, and he wasn't cooperating.

Responding officers tried to calm things down, but 'LHHA's' first couple of trouble didn't disappoint -- we're told Althea whacked Benzino in the head right in front of the cops. She was arrested and booked for misdemeanor battery.

Her bail was set at $20k, and we're told she bonded out early Monday morning.

As for Benzino, he might be shopping for jewelry ... again.

Diddy Hell Yeah, I'm Down For More 'Black Panther'!!!

2/19/2018 7:21 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Someone get Diddy a script for the "Black Panther" sequel -- because he's ALL IN after the film's record breaking weekend!

Diddy was leaving Nightingale Sunday night in WeHo when we asked if he thought the movie's tremendous success would convince Hollywood to greenlight more black films. His reaction was the most enthusiastic -- and maybe a little booze-fueled -- we've seen yet.

'BP' made $192 million so far, and is projected to top $235 mil once the holiday weekend is over -- the biggest February opening ever.

You can tell ... he knows the numbers, and "hell yeah" ... he's amped about 'em!!

C'mon, Diddy as King T'Challa's 2nd cousin in the music biz ... for 'BP2'? 

Lamar Odom Advice for Manziel Here's How to Keep Your Life On Track

2/19/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom's battle with drugs, alcohol and depression almost cost him everything -- so he's telling Johnny Manziel the #1 thing he's gotta do to avoid the same traps.

"Put higher power first," Odom told TMZ Sports, "Whoever his God may be."

Lamar, of course, was in a coma for days after OD'ing at a brothel in Nevada ... but he continues to party hard despite his brush with death.

Johnny, meanwhile, says he's got his life back on track ... after years of hitting the bottle while he struggled with bipolar disorder.

Lamar doesn't want him to go through that pain again -- telling us he's a big-time Johnny Football fan ... and that he truly believes JM can make an NFL comeback.

But Odom says work's gotta be put in off the field, too ... with a focus on faith.

ESPN's Jemele Hill Jamie Foxx's Fit Over Katie Holmes ... Bizarre, Unnecessary

2/19/2018 6:27 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

ESPN star Jemele Hill says the way Jamie Foxx shut down a live "SportsCenter" interview over a Katie Holmes question was bizarre ... since EVERYBODY knows they're dating! 

Hill's good friend and former "The Six" co-host Michael Smith was the one asking the Katie Holmes question Friday when Foxx stopped the interview and walked off

Hill says she and Smith both respect Foxx a lot -- but in this particular instance, "I thought he unnecessarily made Mike look bad."

"I thought it was kind of bizarre why he acted that way ... like I thought [Jamie's relationship with Katie] was pretty public and that everybody knew, but apparently everybody doesn't know."

Hill has a point -- Jamie and Holmes were sitting together last month at Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party -- a VERY high profile event. So, it's not like people don't know. 

Hill says the question was not supposed to be hard-hitting journalism -- just a jokey, fun question in a lighthearted interview about the NBA All-Star game.

2/19/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios has finally found her Hunny and it's not in DeMario Jackson, despite the two spending Valentine's Day together. 

We're told the "Bachelor in Paradise" star just got a new mini-Pomeranian pup, which she's named Hunny. Corinne got the pooch 2 weeks ago after plopping down a couple of G's.

Corinne already has a chow named Mookie, but wanted Mookie to have a companion since she's working a lot and often not home. 

Hunny was flown in from Tokyo, where the mini-Pom breeder is based. The two pooches look an awful lot alike, apart from the obvious size difference ...  they're already getting along just swimmingly.

As for DeMario, he ain't in the dog house. We're told the two are still "just friends." 

Gold Medalist Eric Radford Trudeau and Canada Embraces Openly Gay Athletes

2/19/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Trudeau makes gay athletes feel lucky as hell while President Trump and his lackeys make them feel like second-class citizens ... that's the sad truth according to the first openly gay athlete to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics.

Canada's Eric Radford says he's gotten a hero's welcome after he and figure skating partner Meagan Duhamel won gold this week in PyeongChang.

It's a stark contrast to the drama U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon's dealing with after snubbing Veep Mike Pence, who invited Rippon to meet with him after his bronze win. Rippon declined ... citing Pence's staunch opposition for gay rights (he once referred to gay marriage as "societal collapse"). 

Check it out ... Radford extends his own invite to Rippon. Guessing he'll definitely accept!
