Nicki Minaj

Taylor Swift Was Wrong

... And She Admitted it

7/24/2015 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicki Minaj went on TV to tell the world ... Taylor Swift screwed up when she assumed Nicki was attacking her over the VMA noms.

Nicki went on 'GMA' and revealed she and Taylor had a chat yesterday and Swifty admitted she was wrong when she went after Nicki on Twitter, jumping to the conclusion that Nicki was ragging on her over "Anaconda" being passed on for video of the year.

Minaj says everything's now kumbaya between the 2 of them now that Taylor's eaten crow.

Future

House of Blues Concert Shut Down ...

After Crowd Melee

7/24/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Future can't give it away in West Hollywood. His plan to throw a free concert was thwarted a second time Thursday after would-be concertgoers were unloading either smoke bombs or fire extinguishers. 

Future was at the House of Blues Thursday night when the crowd started rushing cops and clouding the joint up ... and that's when the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. came in and took care of business, shutting it down before Future could perform.  

This was the second failed attempt at a free concert ... earlier in the day, cops shut down the planned free concert at the Roxy when the crowd got out of control. 

Third time was a charm ... Future ended up performing at Supperclub in Hollywood.

Birdman

I'm Not Involved in Plot

To Shoot Lil Wayne

7/24/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0723-birdman-lil-wayne-tmz-01Birdman's finally breaking his silence on the Lil Wayne shooting, and despite police docs tying him and Young Thug to the suspect -- he's denying ANY involvement in a murder-for-hire plot.

Sources close to Wayne and Birdman confirm to TMZ what police docs insinuated ... that Birdman got a phone call on April 26, shortly after the bus was shot up in Atlanta. As we reported, police knew the call was placed between 2 phones registered to Birdman.

We're told the call came from someone in Wayne's camp who was understandably pissed, and anxious to tell Birdman what went down shortly before the shooting -- that Jimmy Carlton Winfrey had been kicked out of a club for harassing Wayne.

Winfrey was eventually arrested and charged with the shooting.

Our sources say Birdman assured Wayne he was not involved in any way, and vowed to help figure out who was behind it. 

We're also told the phones being registered to Birdman is not surprising, because they're company phones and everyone using them -- Wayne's people, Birdman, and even Winfrey -- is associated with Cash Money or Young Money.

0723-scott-disick-kourtney-kardashian-INF-AKMGSI-02Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian kept it civil Thursday, when they had a meal together with the kids.

Scott, Kourtney, Mason and Penelope all had lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel. We don't know if baby Reign was there.  

After lunch, they drove in separate cars to Scott's Hollywood Hills home where she handed off the kids so he could spend time with them.  

As we reported, Kourtney was at a Century City building Monday, and although we don't know who she saw, it's the building where attorney Laura Wasser works. She repped Kim and Khloe in their divorces, and we know Kourtney wants to work out a custody arrangement.

Lisa Vanderpump

Barn Stormin'

... For My Mini Horses

7/23/2015 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0723-lisa-vanderpump-pony-tmz-01Lisa Vanderpump just built a fabulous new home where her miniature horses can roam in the middle of Beverly Hills. Sorry, deer and antelope ... you're on your own. 

LV's pal Mohamed Hadid designed, built and painted a mini barn for the mini horses Lisa just bought for hubby Ken's birthday. We're told Mohamed hammered out the project over 2 weeks ... so the lil' Vanderponies could ball out in true Bev Hills fashion.

He painted it pink because it's Lisa's favorite color -- which is weird, since the horses are Ken's gifts ... but whatever.

Never look a gift horse house in the mouth.
