Maddie Ziegler

... On Her 13th Bday

10/5/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-maddie-ziegler-birthday-dinner-INSTAGRAM-01Maddie Ziegler just turned 13 and if you're wondering what a kid who's starred in 3 Sia music videos and a reality show gets when they reach teen-hood ... ice, as in a pair of diamond stud earrings.

Ziegler's family surprised the "Dance Moms" star with a birthday party at their family's favorite hibachi restaurant. We're told the youngster was punked by her family and friends, who all profusely apologized saying they couldn't make it out for her birthday.

But when Maddie showed up at the restaurant ... her BFFs Nia, Kendall and Mackenzie from the show all yelled SURPRISE!!! We're told 2 dozen people were in on it, even Abby Lee Miller.

After the group sang happy birthday, they took down a cheesecake. And to top it all off she also got what every other 13-year-old out there wants ... an Apple Watch. 

Next stop for the youngsters ... L.A., where they'll be filming the new season of "Dance Moms."

When we were 13, we ate pizza and played Nintendo.


'Batman' Comic Artist

BAM!!! POW!!!

Near Blind Artist Creates Awesome Illustrations

10/5/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-tommy-castillo-comic-book-artist-MAIN-01The guy responsible for creating dozens of Batman comics with elaborate illustrations is blind as a Batman.

Tommy Castillo is big in the comic world, known for penciling a bunch of Batman spinoffs. Tommy's especially impressive because he's totally blind in one eye and has 15% vision in the other.

Check out the "100 Days of Death" illustration below ... the fine pencil detailing is all the more amazing given his disability. It took a year to complete. And Batman isn't Tommy's only fete. He also illustrates for "Tales from the Crypt."

Tommy lost his vision after blood vessels in his eyes were destroyed because of his diabetes. He was blind in one eye for years, and the other eye lost vision over the last few years.

Tommy used a magnifying glass to assist in his latest zombie-themed work, "100 Days of Death."

Lil Wayne

I Wanted Chanel West Coast

But Birdman Screwed It Up

10/4/2015 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Lil Wayne says he's trying to sign and develop young talent in an effort to keep his music label at the top of the game ... but Birdman is blocking his decisions.

In the long standing legal battle with Birdman ... Weezy claims in legal docs he tried to ink a deal with Chanel West Coast on his Young Money Label ... but negotiations went south when Cash Money refused to give the official sign off.

Here's what's odd -- back in 2013 it was reported Chanel signed with Young Money ... and is still featured on their website as an artist.  According to Wayne's docs though ... the deal never went through ... so it's unclear whether Chanel was ever officially brought on.

Wayne makes it clear though ... Birdman is getting in the way of business and ultimately costing the company a ton of money.

We reached out to Birdman for comment ... so far no word back.
