Kanye West Sweats it Over New Album

5/21/2017 7:23 AM PDT

Kanye West is back in his hood, strolling through Calabasas after seeking musical inspiration on the highest mountaintop in Wyoming.

Kanye breezed into his studio Saturday with a few buds, presumably to work on new music. TMZ broke the story ... Kanye's working on a new album and has gone to a Wyoming resort several times over the last month for some peace and quiet.  

The resort is super luxurious and he's spent more than a week each time ... all by his lonesome.

Cher Billboard TV Execs Fear Trump Bashing During Awards Speech

5/21/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cher can't resist going after Donald Trump Meryl Streep-style, at least that's the worry of Billboard Award honchos who worry her acceptance speech could become super vulgar.

Sources tell TMZ ... they're dealing with what they believe is the inevitable -- Cher hates Donald Trump with a passion and will go on the attack Sunday night when she receives the Icon Award.

Here's the dilemma ... show execs don't want to cut Cher's mic, because it will look like censorship and possibly even a pro-Trump move. It could also piss off the anti-Trump audience.

The flip side ... if Cher unleashes her considerable vocabulary of forbidden words, ABC could be in hot water with the FCC.

Cher -- who is set to perform at her first award show in 15 years -- has been vocally against Trump, and has called him an obnoxious asshole and  a "f***ing" idiot. She also said, "He wants the adulation. He doesn't give a s**t about the work."

Nick Carter's Dad Family Wants Autopsy To Prevent More Deaths

5/21/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bob Carter's kids don't want their dad cremated just yet ... they want an autopsy, but not because they believe foul play was involved in his death.

Bob's widow, Ginger, has already signed off on cremation papers. She tells us Bob was in bad health, so she didn't feel an autopsy was necessary. Ginger says doctors already told her the cause of death was a heart attack.

Some of the Carter kids are worried that heart disease might run in their family, but they're in the dark. They're hoping an autopsy would give their own doctors a road map to determine if they also have heart disease ... and if they do they could take early measures to control or even eliminate it.

The medical examiner says a state-funded autopsy isn't in the cards because it only covers foul play. That means if the Carters one, they're on their own. We're told Aaron's agreed to front the $$$.

Ginger's agreeable, so it looks like an autopsy is in the cards.

Riff Raff I'm Outta the Codeine Castle ... It's Yours for $1.4 Mil

5/21/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

End of an era ... Riff Raff's ridiculously purple Las Vegas home he affectionately dubbed the Codeine Castle is up for grabs.

Riff Raff moved out about a month ago, and stands to make a small profit -- he purchased it for $1.3 million 2 years ago ... and it's listing for $1.4 mil. 

It ain't your average suburban family -- every one of the 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms is grey and purple. The backyard doesn't stray from the theme either ... grey lagoon pool with a purple slide. There's also a swim-up bar and another tiki bar in the yard.

The home is listed with Zar Zanganeh of Luxe Estates & Lifestyles.

Geraldo Rivera My Mentor Roger Ailes Made Fox News for Rednecks

5/21/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Geraldo Rivera thinks Roger Ailes was like a modern-day Robin Hood of sorts, taking news and bringing it to the overlooked rednecks, farmers and others by the millions.

We got Geraldo in NYC Friday, on his way into work at FNC where he told us Roger has left an enduring mark on broadcasting and FNC, despite the scandal.

Geraldo and Ailes were tight ... Geraldo even calls him his mentor. He says Ailes and Rupert Murdoch had a vision to bring a different type of news to people whose only option was "progressive" news.

As for the sexual harassment accusations Ailes was facing ... Geraldo touches on that too.

The spotlight is on Liev Schreiber’s good looks!

Here’s a 30-year-old version of the smirking stud in Los Angeles back in 1998 (left) and 19 years later ... the hot dad of two -- whose film, "Chuck," recently hit theaters -- posing for a photo in Hollywood last week (right).

A perfect man.

The question is ...

Meek Mill Meet My New Chick ... We Like to Party

5/20/2017 2:52 PM PDT

Meek Mill's moved on from Nicki Minaj to another hot chick -- looks like he's got a type.

The rapper showed off his new girlfriend -- Nessa Colombiana -- in a few vids of them partying Friday night in Dubai. Meek's there with Nessa for Arab Fashion Week.

We're told the 2 have been hanging out for about a month ... and Nessa accompanied Meek to his big birthday bash in the Caribbean a few weeks back.

We're pretty sure she wasn't with him last week at the strip club, though.

EXCLUSIVE

Bill Pullman waited 21 long years to do it, but he finally got the right stage ... and he delivered.

The actor was the commencement speaker at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC Saturday, and gave the graduates a blast of nostalgia by opening with a line from of his famous "Independence Day" speech ... with a slight revision.

Bill made a political wisecrack, too -- but it may have been an accident -- when he explained the glory of playing President Whitmore. Good stuff.

As for why Pullman chose to speak at WWC ... his sons are alumni.

Bella Hadid Adjusts to the Yacht Life

5/20/2017 11:24 AM PDT

Bella Hadid's used to the high life, but even she had to make a few minor adjustments while cruising around on a baller yacht in France.

The supermodel got some sun and enjoyed a smoke Saturday in a smokin' hot bikini. Bella's in the country for the Cannes Film Festival, but there's always time to hang out with friends on a luxury double-decker yacht. All that's missing are the mimosas.

No word if Bella's planning on meeting up with fellow model Emily Ratajkowski, but either way ... she's living le belle vie.

Kim Zolciak Meets John Legend with the Fam ... No Oral Required

5/20/2017 10:38 AM PDT

Kim Zolciak got her wish -- her whole family went to a John Legend show and even got to meet him ... and her daughter didn't have to put out.

You may recall ... Kim joked with John's wife Chrissy Teigen earlier this month that her daughter Brielle would trade oral sex for VIP access. Some of her followers got upset -- but Kim told us it was an innocent JK.

Kim and Chrissy clearly don't give a rat's ass what anyone thinks. Also, the joke worked ... Kim's son Kash -- who's a huge Legend fan and is recovering from an operation -- got to meet the musician with the whole fam.

Brielle was also down with it ... you'll excuse the expression.

Several members of the Royal Family -- including Prince William and Prince Harry -- arrived at St. Mark's Church Saturday to see Pippa -- sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge -- walk down the aisle and marry hedge fund manager James Matthews.

The church is a 12th-century church just a couple of miles away from her parent's home in Englefield, Berkshire. The ceremony is believed to have cost over £250,000.

This is just awesome ... Harry Styles and Stevie Nicks serenaded 150 people Friday night at the best concert in L.A. ... hands down.

Harry was performing at Troubadour in WeHo when Stevie jumped on stage and the 2 sang her monster hit, "Leather and Lace."  But that wasn't the end. They sang "Landslide" from Fleetwood Mac and then Harry's new song, "Two Ghosts" 

And if you don't feel left out enough ... tickets were $20.
