EXCLUSIVE

Two starstruck fans were on the set of the upcoming '70s thriller, "The Nice Guys" ... but this time the stars were the ones who were starstruck.

Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling went goo goo over LAPD Chief Charlie Beck when he strolled onto the set for a quick look-see during filming outside downtown headquarters. 

The trio shot the breeze and traded war stories, and they must have hit it off ... because we're told Beck invited them to stop by his office later.

As for the cast on Gosling's arm ... it's just for the flick.

Blake Shelton

I Don't Have to See 'American Sniper'

To Blast Celebs Attacking It

1/22/2015 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012215_blake_shelton_launchBlake Shelton has no problem defending "American Sniper" and ripping celebs who trash it, even though he hasn't even seen the movie!

Shelton was leaving 30 Rock (probably after his "Saturday Night Live" rehearsal) when he told us ... he was defending the military, not the movie itself, when he tweeted, "Sickens me to see celebrities or anybody slam the very people who protect their right to talk sh*t.. #truecowards"

Shelton admitted this week he might have been drunk tweeting ... but tells us he does plan to see the movie soon.

Kid Rock also went on the attack against Seth Rogen and Michael Moore, for their 'Sniper' criticisms -- writing on his website, "F*** you Michael Moore, you’re a piece of s*** and your uncle would be ashamed of you. Seth Rogen, your uncle probably molested you. I hope both of you catch a fist to the face soon."

Unclear if Kid was drinking, but chances are ...

Kim Kardashian

I Took Selfies

WAY Before Selfies Were Cool

1/22/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian Selfie Book
Kim Kardashian
was way ahead of the curve ... training a camera on herself when she was just 4.

We're told Kim's "Selfish" book contains pics she took of herself in the year George Orwell made famous. She picked up a camera and instinctively decided there was nothing better than photographing herself ... so she did.

Here's what Kim said in pitching the book, "I took pictures of myself with digital cameras when I was in junior high and high school, and I just got hooked." And this will shock you ... she says, "I was always obsessed with selfies."

And we're told ... the book was Kanye's idea. He titled it and his creative team -- Donda -- came up with the look.

It's due out in May.

Questlove

I Celebrated Birthday 44

By Getting Drunk for the First Time!

1/22/2015 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012215_questlove_launchQuestlove lived the first 43 years of his life without getting drunk once ... a streak he broke by getting wasted for the FIRST TIME IN HIS LIFE on his 44th birthday.

Quest explained to our photog ... he's a bit of a lightweight when it comes to drinking, but he did one too many shots of rum while celebrating his big day on Tuesday. 

He also talked about another first -- something experienced drinkers have known about since turning 21 ... and most likely before that too.

Drake Dad Music
Drake
's dad is making a return to music, but he'll be doing it without his famous son ... because Drizzy was just too busy to hit the studio with his pops.

Dennis Graham put out the word on Instagram ... he was looking for a "classy" female rapper for a new song -- and in his words, "ghetto style" rappers need not apply.

Well, Graham tells TMZ he found his woman in rookie rapper Ze Monroe, and she's going to rhyme on his new song, "Kinda Crazy." The original plan was for Drake to guest star too, but he couldn't fit studio time into his schedule ... but DG says there are no hard feelings.

As for future family collabs? Dennis, who's in his early 60s, says he was asked to do a club gig near Coachella -- where Drake's headlining -- but adds he's not sure he can stay up that late.  

C'mon pops! The Motto?

Joanna Krupa Sues

Hey, Brandi Glanville ...

Keep My Vagina Out Of Your Mouth

1/22/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0121_Brandi-Glanville_Joanna-Krupa_tmz_2Joanna Krupa plans to clean out Brandi Glanville ... finally making good on her threat to sue over months of trash talk about her baby maker.

According to legal docs ... Krupa claims she experienced severe emotional distress when Glanville went on "Watch What Happens Live" ... and told the world JK has a stinky beaver. Now Krupa's slapped her ass with a defamation suit.

Glanville reiterated the scentiment multiple times ... and Krupa went ballistic about it last month.

If Joanna wins the suit -- filed by her attorney Ray Rafool -- she'll finally force Brandi to pay up ... but the move isn't without risk. Krupa's lady parts will now be up for discussion in open court.

The witness list should be ... interesting?

Turnin' Over New Leaf

EXCLUSIVE

Celebrity Weed Dealer
Celebrity weed mogul Milk Tyson has a new way of getting high ... charity.

Tyson owned a weed delivery company that catered to big, big Hollywood celebs. He got really famous after tattooing the face of one of his close party friends -- Justin Bieber -- on his arm.

There was a turning point in Milk's life when he and Justin sold some of the Biebs' spray paint cans and auctioned them off to benefit typhoon victims in the Philippines.

We found out Milk is hooked ... on charity. He sold his weed company and launched an 11-city hospital tour where he recruits celebs who record videos for children fighting serious illnesses.

Zendaya, Travis Barker and a bunch of other celebs have joined forces with Milk and the tour is already viewed as a big success.

Tyson's foundation, FAM -- Fighting All Monsters While Finding All Meaning -- expects to raise millions of bucks with the help of his celeb friends.

Now that's some really good s**t.

Hope Solo

SUSPENDED BY U.S. SOCCER

After 'Belligerent' Behavior During Hubby's DUI

breaking news

0121_hope_solo_usa_soccer_TMZ
Hope Solo has been suspended by the U.S. Women's soccer team ... just days after she got into it with police while her husband was being arrested for DUI.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Solo and ex-NFL player Jerramy Stevens were "acting belligerent" when Stevens was stopped by cops in Manhattan Beach, CA early Monday morning ... with law enforcement sources telling us both Stevens and Solo were "a major pain."

Now, U.S Soccer has issued a statement saying ... "During our current national team camp, Hope made a poor decision that has resulted in a negative impact on U.S. Soccer and her teammates. We feel at this time it is best for her to step away from the team."

Hope addressed the suspension on her Facebook page ... writing, "I accept and respect the Federation's decision, and more importantly, I apologize for disappointing my teammates, coaches and the Federation who have always supported me."

She added, "I think it's best for me to take a break, decompress from the stress of the last several months, and come back mentally and physically ready to positively contribute to the team."

Robin Thicke

Puts Paula Patton On Hot Seat ...

In 'Blurred Lines' Lawsuit

1/21/2015 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0121-paula-patton-robin-thicke-tmz-01Paula Patton could have Robin Thicke by the short hairs ... again -- she's being called to testify in the court battle over whether he ripped off "Blurred Lines" from Marvin Gaye.

According to court docs ... Robin's estranged wife is listed as a witness for the case which still looks like it's heading to trial. Marvin Gaye III and Robin have been warring over 'Blurred' and a handful of other Thicke tunes. 

Paula is expected to testify about the 2011 song, "Love After War" ... which Gaye thinks copies Marvin's "After the Dance." Paula appeared in the 'Love' music video, and we're told she co-wrote it with Robin.

Going through a very public, painful, drawn out break-up with your ex -- and then calling her to testify on your behalf in a major legal battle ... seems like a recipe for disaster.

However, as TMZ first reported ... Robin actually went to a holiday party at Paula's house -- so maybe the dust has settled. We'll see, when and if she takes the oath.

One thing's for sure ... the video was freakin' hot!

Whoopi Goldberg

Deal With It 'View' Execs

I'm Staging Sit-In to Save My Back

1/21/2015 2:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0121-tuesday-the-viewWhoopi Goldberg's got back ... problems and it's creating a rift between her, the other "View" co-hosts and producers of the show -- who think Whoopi's new chair is a major eyesore.

When Whoopi returned from her two-week injury sabbatical Tuesday, she brought a new ergonomic chair for support. All the women used the same chair ... so Whoopi's wouldn't look different.

According to our sources, producers felt the chairs looked clunky on camera ... so they yanked them for Wednesday's episode -- but Whoopi stood (or sat) her ground in the new chair.

And yes ... it stood out.

0121-wednesday-the-viewWe're told Whoopi has no plans to change back, so producers are struggling to find a way to make it more pleasing to the eye.

At least they don't have anything else to worry about ...
