If the push-up video didn't convince you Justin Bieber's a hard mofo, this should do the trick -- the singer showing off his badass tats in jail ... so police could take photos of them.
The Miami Beach PD just released the pics -- presumably snapped to keep a record of Bieber's identifying marks -- and they're GANGSTA AF.
Not really ... but it's hilarious that Bieber obviously thinks so.
We can't really decide on our favorite -- it's a toss-up between the weeping Jesus face and the inexplicable Native American head (the singer once claimed he was "part Indian").
The real shocker is how Bieber can stay standing with two gold chains around his neck.
Pulls Pack of Chicks with Sick Maybach
(And Brags About It)
3/4/2014 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Tyga's $2 million luxury car made him the Pied Piper of thirsty chicks outside a nightclub last night ... and the video is awesome!
Tyga couldn't resist bragging about his customized Maybach 62 S Landaulet outside DBA nightclub in West Hollywood -- yelling, "$2 million car n***a!"
He added a jab at Birdman too ... for only dropping $1.5 mil on a similar ride.
But money aside ... the best part of the clip is watching the crowd of hot babes following Tyga and his Maybach out of the parking lot -- one of 'em desperately trying to give him her number.
Frankly, we can't understand why Tyga would ever get out of this car.
Teresa Giudice & Husband
Plead Guilty in Bank Fraud Case
Face Years In Prison
3/4/2014 8:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Teresa and Joe Giudice just pled guilty in their massive money fraud case -- and will likely be heading to prison.
The couple agreed to plead guilty this morning in NJ as part of a plea deal -- in which Teresa is expected to face 21 to 27 months in prison ... while Joe could get 46 months. Joe, an Italian citizen, also faces deportation.
We're told Teresa pled guilty to 4 counts (including conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud) and Joe to 5 counts (same as Teresa, plus failure to file tax returns).
Teresa and Joe were initially indicted on a total of 41 criminal counts last year -- all between 2001 and 2011.
Among their alleged crimes -- prosecutors claim the couple used fake pay stubs, tax returns and W-2 forms to inflate their incomes and obtain nearly $5 million in mortgages and other loans. They also allegedly hid money they got from "Real Housewives" and other business ventures after filing for bankruptcy in 2009.
The couple will be sentenced at a later date.
Joins Bachelor Party
Black Holes, Anyone?
3/4/2014 8:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Stephen Hawking took a break from being smarter than everyone else this weekend ... to hang out at a BACHELOR PARTY ... and dude even posed for a picture!
The Hawk was out in Cambridge on Saturday night ... when he was approached by a bunch of guys wearing superhero costumes (apparently, they're all dressed like something called "Bananaman).
Hawking, always the good sport, posed for a pic with the gang.
The most shocking part ... Hawking, who reportedly LOOOVES strip clubs (seriously), went back home after the pic ... and didn't accompany the guys on the rest of their debaucherous journey.
Too bad ... we hear the guy's a real party machine.
Lie Detectors for Everyone
To Find Jewelry Thief
3/4/2014 7:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Call it CSI: Tarzana ... Khloe Kardashian is demanding lie detector tests for EVERYONE who had access to the jewelry stolen from her home ... and she want fingerprints too.
We're told Khloe suspects the jewelry thief or thieves who pilfered $250K worth of items is someone with direct access ... house staff, assistants, filming crews, inspectors and movers.
As we reported ... the thief or thieves made off with watches, diamonds and gold chains that were left in the house, which was recently sold.
It's likely an inside job because there's no sign of a break-in and the house sits inside a gated estate and the house itself is also gated.
Sources say Khloe does NOT suspect Lamar since he's been in Spain playing basketball.
Ellen Called Me a Drag Queen ...
And it Wasn't Funny
3/4/2014 6:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Liza Minnelli didn't like the joke Ellen DeGeneres cracked about her at the Oscars ... suggesting she was actually a drag queen.
Liza and a male companion hit up Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood Monday night ... and Liza made it clear -- Ellen's joke backfired big time.
Liza's note to Ellen: She should have stopped and acknowledged they were friends, but instead Ellen blew through to the next joke, so it sounded mean.
But Liza says she's sure Ellen was filled with the best of intentions.
In other news...
We're not sure how or why it started, but Kylie Jenner was caught rolling around on the floor fighting with one of her bigger sisters.

She Doesn't Own Oscar Pic ...
Guess Who Does
3/4/2014 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ellen DeGeneres does NOT own the picture that broke Twitter ... unless he signed his rights away, the owner of the famous Oscar pic is BRADLEY COOPER.
Here's the way it works ... the person who owns the now-famous photo is the person who actually took it ... NOT the person who owns the camera or organized the shoot.
Cooper was the snapper ... so it's his.
And even if Ellen signed her rights over to the Academy when she signed her hosting gig, the Academy would have no rights to the photo, because Ellen can't transfer what isn't hers.
So unless Bradley signed his rights away to the Academy, he's the copyright owner. Any use of the pic without his permission is a violation of the copyright.
He seemed down with tweeting it out, so Ellen is cool. But any use of the pic on TV shows -- including hers -- would only be kosher with Bradley's blessing. And he'd own the rights to any reproduction.
It all translates into cash. It could come in handy if that "Hangover" money runs out.
Has No Clue Bobbi Kristina Got Hitched
3/4/2014 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bobby Brown is either totally in denial ... totally in the dark, or his daughter just hates him -- because he has no idea Bobbi Kristina is telling everyone she's married.
Papa Brown was leaving dinner last night when we asked him about BK tying the knot with Nick Gordon -- Bobby immediately laughed and said, "No, she didn't get married."
Interesting ... since BK and Nick showed off their rings back in January and announced they're hitched.
Watch Bobby though ... as the convo continues he seems less convinced he actually has a clue, saying ... "If she says she is. I don't know about it."
Daddy knows last.
Khloe and Lamar
Together Again ...
As Crime Victims
3/4/2014 3:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are united again ... as victims of a quarter-of-a-million dollar jewelry heist.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... someone pilfered watches and gold chains inside the former couple's Tarzana home ... which has sat empty for more than a month.
Cops tell us they think it's an inside job because there are no signs of forced entry.
As you know ... Khloe filed for divorce and has moved on. The house was sold to "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco.
The jewelry theft was discovered Monday night ... when Khloe and Kris were there cleaning out the house for the new owner.
As for who did it ... cops are investigating. The house has undergone work over the last month so detectives are focusing on some of the tradesmen.
Styrofoam Cuppin' In ATL
Sign of Sizzurp [VIDEO]
3/4/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
It's better than Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster -- it's Justin Bieber holding one of his fabled STYROFOAM cups on his way into an ATL nightclub ... a clear sign of lean ... and it's all on video.
TMZ has obtained security footage at Tongue & Groove -- showing Bieber entering the club Monday evening holding a tall, white styrofoam cup ... the telltale container for lean ... aka sizzurp.
It's the first time Bieber's been seen holding one of these cups -- and our sources say he had the cojones to continue partying with it inside.
As we reported, Bieber's drug use -- specifically lean and weed -- has spiraled out of control in Atlanta ... in fact, one source said he was constantly high ... drinking more lean, smoking more weed than ever.
We're told the singer has ordered his goons to make sure NO ONE sees him carrying the white cup ... which has resulted in multiple fights with photogs.
We're told even the bodyguards are getting fed up.
How to Guilt a Jet Company
Into a Freebie
3/4/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
There's a reason the Dalai Lama preaches against people seeking riches ... he doesn't have to because he gets lots of freebies ... and not without a dose of guilt.
Dalai's camp tried to squeeze a private jet company into giving him a free jet ride or at the very least a STEEP discount.
Here's what we know. The Dalai Lama was in L.A. last Friday and needed to fly to Minneapolis. His people contacted ZephyrJets to book a flight.
Dalai's people sent an email to ZephyrJets, saying another jet company flew their leader from San Francisco to L.A. gratis, and they wanted to see what Zephyr could do for them on the next leg.
The email says they were asking "a few friends" if they could get a jet for free, but they wanted a backup plan in case the friends didn't come through. They made it clear they didn't want to pay the $44K price tag.
In another email -- sent before their freebie pitch -- Dalai's people greased the wheels with Zephyr by playing the Lama card: "Yes the Dalai Lama will be very grateful."
We don't know how the Dalai Lama got to Minneapolis or what, if anything he shelled out. But it sounds like it was a divine flight.

During Backseat OD
3/4/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In the video, emergency workers pull her out of the car through the trunk ... and a worried Jamie watches on as they handle the situation.

I'm Not Mad at Rihanna
For Banging Drake Again
3/4/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown is all good with Drake doing the midnight jockey ride with Rihanna -- even though she caused MAJOR BEEF between them for years.
Sources close to Chris tell TMZ ... the singer is copacetic over the duo rekindling their romance. Chris has his mind on his money ... focusing on making a comeback.
You'll recall ... all the quien es mas macho over Rihanna triggered an all-out war at WIP nightclub in NYC back in 2012 ... when the Brown/Drake posses got into a bottle throwing fight.
TMZ broke the story ... doctors at the rehab facility where he just finished a 90-day stint have diagnosed the singer with bipolar disorder.
Maybe the meds are working.
