Taylor Swift My Record Broke a Record We're Number 1!!!

11/18/2017 8:14 AM PST

Taylor Swift and her crew gave the world the finger ... WE'RE NUMBER 1!!!

Swifty and the execs from Republic Records mugged for this shot ... released on the heals of the big news that her latest album, "Reputation," broke her personal best ... selling 1.29 million units in the first week.

Taylor's also the first artist in history to have 4 albums debut north of 1 million copies in the first week. Adele has only done it once, the Backstreet Boys and N-Sync both did it twice.

FUN FACT: Taylor and the folks at Republic clearly knew this was coming ... we're told the photo was taken a week ago in Nashville.

AC/DC Malcolm Young Dead at 64

11/18/2017 6:29 AM PST

Malcolm Young, the co-founder of the legendary rock group AC/DC has died.

Young had been suffering from dementia for several years and it appears the condition contributed to his death. The band says Malcolm died Saturday peacefully with his family by his bedside.

Malcolm was the rhythm guitarist who founded the group with his brother Angus Young in 1973. The legendary band produced a string of monster hits, including "Highway to Hell," "Back in Black," "Thunderstruck" and "Hells Bells." 

The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.

Malcolm was replaced in 2014 by his nephew Stevie Young ... this after his health began to deteriorate.

He's survived by his wife, 2 kids and 3 grandchildren.

RIP 

Meek Mill Wins Big Prison Victory Out and About with the Inmates

11/18/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill's been sprung from solitary confinement and moved to another prison with greener pastures ... literally.

An official at the State Correctional Institution in Chester, PA tells TMZ ... the rapper was just transferred to their prison and out of Camp Hill. He's now in general population and he has his own cell.

We broke the story ... Meek wanted out of solitary because he feared it would take a severe toll on his mental state.  

Meek can now hit up the yard in the morning or afternoon. He can ball out on the court or go for a jog. Should he fancy himself with a book, he can read it at the on-site library or in his cell. Gym time will depend on which job he ends up taking ... which, by the way, pays 19 cents an hour.

He'll be assigned a job and has 2 choices -- cleaning cells or cooking.

Kim K & Beyonce No Bad Hubby Blood Spilled at Serena's Wedding

11/18/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Beyonce aren't letting their famous husbands' longstanding feud affect them ... or so it seems.

Sources tell us Kim and Beyonce were more than cordial Thursday night at Serena Williams' wedding ... we're told they exchanged hellos, hugged and showed off some pics of their kids in the VIP section set up to avoid paps lingering outside.

As you know ... Jay-Z and Kanye West haven't spoken in a long time, ever since Kanye attacked Bey in 2016. That was followed by Ye's lawsuit alleging Jay's Tidal owes him over $3 mil.

While Jay and Kanye once had a super close relationship  ... the same can't be said about Kim and Bey. They're not friends -- in fact we're told Bey never really liked Kim, although Kim never harbored a grudge. 

Nevertheless, they still acted friendly around each other ... not that they had a choice. Not only do they have a ton of mutual friends, but running into each other was inevitable with just a handful of A-listers in the tent.

Leave the drama for the papas ...

Farrah Abraham Here's a Big Black Friday Deal for Ya!!

11/18/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham's ass is going bargain basement, as in $1, for the biggest shopping day of the year. 

Farrah made 2 live appearances on the porn site, CamSoda, this year. She delivered on the first, but pissed off fans the second time when she backed out of the anal scene she promised to do.

The site had to offer refunds, but some marketing genius came up with a plan to recoup the dough. CamSoda will hawk all the videos Farrah's done with them -- streaming or download -- for $1.

That's right, you can now call her "1 Buck Butt!" Just for Black Friday, though.

Ja Rule Just Joking About Banksy Search But Now I Got Some Leads

11/18/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ja Rule says he was just playing when he said he was looking for Banksy, but then things got real ... and now he's hoping to score a meeting in a dark alley somewhere.

We got the rapper at LAX Friday and asked him why he's trying to find the anonymous street artist ... but he's pretty secretive himself. What's interesting is he claims he got some "real feedback" from people who know Banksy ... but our guy's not really buying it.

He does tell us he's got a new project coming soon, and suggests he wants to collab with Banksy on it -- if he can find him.

So, Banksy, if you're reading this ...

Urijah Faber Jean-Claude Would Be A Damme Good UFC Fighter

11/18/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

You MMA fighters are lucky Jean-Claude Van Damme is busy as an international movie star ... 'cause UFC legend Urijah Faber says if he wasn't doing that, JCVD could be kicking ass in the octagon.

Faber attended a kicking clinic Van Damme put on in Sacramento this week, a clinic also attended by Faber's Team Alpha Male cohort Cody Garbrandt

Van Damme got busy with his legs (as he always does) but when we talked to Urijah we needed to know if he thought the Muscles from Brussels could ever do it FOR REAL.

"Oh, absolutely."

BTW, this isn't just Faber's opinion, he told TMZ Sports JCVD actually went toe-to-toe with one of the guys from his squad, and things got a little interesting.

"He actually got in with one of our pros and was moving around, and they started going back and forth and he actually caught the guy in the face with a little heel kick and it almost got heated there we had to calm it down."

Guy obviously never saw "Bloodsport."

P!nk wasn't kidding when she said her next performance would be the craziest and most insane ... because hanging off a 34-floor hotel is MADNESS!!!

She's known for her awesome acrobatics, but stepped up her game during a Friday rehearsal for the American Music Awards. We got P!nk hanging by wires off the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Downtown L.A. and doing dance moves, flips and generally floating in the wind.

One look at this video, and you'll understand why she's worried about being able to breathe Sunday night during the show.

And if you're wondering ... yes, the AMAs got a permit for this insanity.

Simone Biles Blasts Gabby Douglas Don't Victim Shame Aly Raisman!

11/17/2017 4:19 PM PST
Breaking News

5:00 PM PT -- Gabby has pulled a near 180, saying she didn't word her reply correctly and "regardless of what you wear, abuse under any circumstance is never acceptable." She's also apologized and says she stands by her teammates.

Simone Biles is publicly attacking her former Team USA gymnastics teammate Gabby Douglas -- and it's all over comments Gabby made insinuating some women invite sexual abuse by the way they dress. 

It all started with Aly Raisman ... their 2016 U.S. Olympic teammate who recently went public with allegations she was sexually assaulted by ex-Team USA doctor Larry Nassar

Raisman -- who famously posed nude for the ESPN Body Issue -- received hate from people who shot down her story because of the provocative pics. 

Raisman clapped back with a message on social media Friday morning saying, "Just because a woman does a sexy photoshoot or wears a sexy outfit does not give a man the right to shame her or not believe her when she comes forward about sexual abuse."

That's when Gabby got involved ... saying:

"However it is our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy. Dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd."

Biles saw Gabby's comment and went scorched-earth ... saying: 

"Shocks me that I’m seeing this but it doesn’t surprise me... honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you & to support her."

She continued, "I support you Aly 💕 & all the other women out there!  STAY STRONG.

We reached out to Douglas for comment -- so far, no word back.
