Brad Pitt Ink Ya Know Me??? Flashing Back Tatts on Island Vacay

Brad Pitt is the anti-Justin Bieber early on in 2021 -- instead of covering up his tattoos like the Biebs, Brad's showing off his ink!!!

Brad's ringing in the new year down in Turks and Caicos and doing some snorkeling ... and these shirtless shots of his outing reveal his extensive back tattoos.

It's a rare sighting as Brad's pretty secretive about his ink work.

As you can see, Brad's back is home to at least 7 tatts ... ranging from a tornado to some Sanskrit and a handful of other interesting designs. Hell, there's even a lower back piece that's dangerously close to tramp stamp territory.

Brad's not flying solo in Turks ... Flea, from Red Hot Chili Peppers, is with him for the male-bonding tropical getaway.

These tatted images come days after Justin engaged in a massive tattoo cover-up for his recent music video -- but there's nothing bashful about Brad.

Justin Bieber Tattoo-less for 'Anyone' Music Video ... Massive Cover-Up Exposed!!!

Justin Bieber has found a painless, though time-consuming, method of tattoo removal.

The Biebs, who is thoroughly inked up, engaged in a massive cover-up for his new music video for "Anyone."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Bieber posted this time-lapse video showing makeup artists, pretty remarkably, hovering over him and making the tats temporarily disappear.

Justin's sitting there in his white Calvins as the makeup team works on his legs, arms, torso and God knows where else.

Bieber's caption ... "No tats for the #Anyonevideo." The weird thing about it ... Justin plays a boxer in the video, and lots of boxers have lots of tats.

Justin has talked about the significance of his tats, saying, "I think the thorns symbolize the rough spots in my life. The flower is such a representation of beauty. I think I'm done on my neck.  That's a Hailey request."

The music vid rolled out New Year's Eve, the day Justin performed for a T-Mobile sponsored concert.

Saint West Gives Himself a Haircut ... Kim Says It's a Cute 'Do

Kim Kardashian's son must have known 2020 was the year of self-haircuts, because he got one in just in the nick of time ... and his Mom wasn't too mad about it.

Kim and Kanye's 5-year-old, Saint West, took a pair of childs' safety scissors to his signature curly locks ... chopping off a good portion from right in the middle of his parting line.

Kim shared photos of the aftermath on her Instagram Story on New Year's Eve -- including the kids' shears that did the job -- adding that her boy "Still looks cute tho."

Considering his parents are well-known for their unique senses of style and fashion ... it seems Saint's already a chip off the old block.

Anti-Masker Spews Asian Slurs, Threats ... 'Go Back to F***ing China!!!'

HATEFUL TIRADE
Nextdoor

A couple's refusal to wear face masks inside a Sephora, spilled into a parking lot confrontation where one guy hurled Asian ethnic slurs.

In this video, you see the guy behind the wheel of a Jeep get out of his car as he's yelling "go back to China," and calling the person recording him a "stupid g**k."

According to witnesses, this all started Sunday inside Sephora in Irvine, CA ... and the couple in the video allegedly refused to wear masks, which upset nearby customers ... including the woman recording this video.

They met again in the parking lot just outside the store ... and on top of hurling epithets, the guy charged toward the woman in a threatening way, saying ... "Are you really that stupid? You know that recording doesn't do anything."

Doesn't look like police got involved this time, and the guy threw one more bigoted parting shot as he pulled away -- "Stay home, and thanks for giving my country COVID."

Kudos to the woman who got the brunt of this hate speech -- she's choosing to focus on positives, and posted ... "I understand there's always unfortunate people living in hate. It's pathetic."

What she said.

Hair Cut Rage Aussies Brawl at Barbershop ... No Cutting Line, Mate!!!

BARBERSHOP BRAWL!!!
9 News

A couple of guys came to blows in a barbershop when they disagreed about who was in line first -- and the wild fight video is more evidence of short fuses in a long pandemic.

This melee unfolded at a place called Hayden's Barbershop in Perth, Australia -- where a 30-something reportedly didn't wait his turn for a trim, and plopped down in the barber's chair ahead of another man who was waiting ... and, obviously, not happy about it.

In footage obtained by Australia's 9 News ... you see that, at first, the older man gets up and makes his frustration known to the younger guy, who argues back but eventually gives up the seat. As the older man takes his place, the chirping continues ... until it fully erupts.

The younger man -- who was later charged with assault for this November brawl -- finally swatted the older fella upside his head, and all hell broke loose from there.

Both men were throwing haymakers at each other as the rest of the guys tried to break it up -- and just when it looked to be over ... the fighting spilled into the parking lot, where more punches were thrown.

According to 9 New, the younger guy could spend up to 10 years in jail if convicted. We all need a cut ... but c'mon, fellas!

Salt-N-Pepa Pepa Sues Doctor ... You Botched My Butt!!!

Exclusive

Pepa from Salt-N-Pepa can't shake her thang without pain and discomfort, because she claims a doctor pressured her into multiples butt surgeries and botched them.

Sandra Denton, better known as Pep, is suing Dr. David Sayah for negligence, claiming he talked her into 3 separate procedures to repair damage she suffered in a July 2018 car accident.

In legal docs, she says the wreck made the biopolymer injections she previously had in her butt and hips shift, leaving her in extreme discomfort. Pep says she was referred to Dr. Sayah in Sept. 2019 to help her out, and the plan was to remove the biopolymer material and butt implants to relieve her pain.

According to the suit, the doctor initially convinced Pep to simply replace her butt implants with smaller ones ... because she claims he told her she'd be distraught if she went back to her au natural derriere.

Instead, Pep alleges Sayah performed an unsuccessful liposuction, which required yet another corrective surgery.

Before that one went down ... she claims Dr. Sayah pressured her into a different procedure which caused her buttocks to harden and knot up -- making it difficult and stressful for her to perform on stage.

She claims the third and final surgery was in Feb. 2020 when Sayah finally removed the biopolymer material ... or so she thought.

Pep says she went to another doctor because her butt was still hurting and, after an MRI, discovered a "large amount of biopolymer silicone and dead scar tissue remaining."

Pepa's suing Dr. Sayah for allegedly disfiguring her and says she'll likely suffer from the injuries for the rest of her life. She also says she's gonna need even more surgery.

Lizzo 'I'm Beautiful, I Just Don't Feel it' ... Shares Moment of 'Negative Thoughts'

ONE OF THOSE DAYS
@lizzo/TikTok

Lizzo is going through it -- in a brutally honest moment, she's admitting she lets all the mean crap Internet trolls say get to her sometimes ... but she's also confident it will pass.

Lest you think things are always "Good As Hell" for the singer, Lizzo opened up about an emotional low she hit Wednesday as she was taking a shower -- "I just started having all of these really negative thoughts about myself. Like, you know, what's wrong with me? Maybe everything, [and] all the mean things people say about me are true."

The video is remarkable because it's the kinda honesty we don't often see from celebs ... and also because ya just wanna give her a hug.

Lizzo says, at that moment, she was hating her body ... but adds these are normal thoughts that "happen to everybody, they happen to the best of us."

She's never lacked for confidence, and you can almost see her working through her emotions, because by the end of the clip Lizzo had some inspirational words -- for herself and everyone else who goes through this on the daily.

Alright ... group hug, peeps.

Male HS Student Speaks Out After Nail Polish Suspension ... End Homophobia in Small Towns

FIGHTIN' FOR CHANGE
ABC

6:21 AM PT -- Trevor appeared on 'GMA' and spoke out for the first time since the controversial suspension. He said opting for nail polish is his way to express himself and vows to end "discrimination, sexism, homophobia and racism in small towns that feel like they can enforce a dress code or rules that completely go against how people feel; that completely go against freedom of expression and completely break the federal law at that matter."

Trevor's grandfather, Leroy, said he hopes the school can re-think its policy and drop it. The district, which has a strict dress code, released a statement saying parents are provided a copy of the dress code each new school year and "the district cannot share any information regarding a specific student."  More than 60k people have signed a petition to support Trevor.

A male high school student in Texas got punished for wearing nail polish on campus -- breaking the dress code -- which he's now calling discriminatory.

17-year-old Trevor Wilkinson started a Change.org petition this week after he received an in-school suspension Monday from officials at Clyde High School in West Texas. The reason ... he had painted his nails black and other colors.

When asked to remove the nail polish by the principal and vice-principal, Wilkinson refused ... and got his punishment, which he says he'll continue opting for as a form of protest.

Trevor, who is gay, said, "Imagine your school not allowing boys to paint their nails and giving boys [in school suspension] ... and the whole administration being ok with it, homophobic and sexist? Welcome to West Texas."

As for the school, their district -- Clyde Consolidated Independent School District -- spoke on its behalf with a blanket statement about the dress code policy ... without touching on Wilkinson specifically. BTW, CHS is a public school ... for what it's worth.

Anyway, CCISD says it conducts a thorough review of its dress code each year and make all students and parents well aware of it before the school year gets underway.

Regarding the nail polish rule -- which also extends to forbidding makeup on males -- the student handbook says students are given a chance to correct it in the moment but will face escalating punishment if they continue to violate the policy.

Flowbee Feelin' the George Clooney Effect ... Sales Up, Then Sold Out!!!

Exclusive

Ever since George Clooney revealed he cuts his own hair with a DIY device famous for its old infomercials, people have been going with the Flowbee ... so much that they're now out of stock!!!

Troy Hunts, Vice President of Flowbee, tells TMZ ... the actor's public shout-out in support of the product last week resulted in sales going up tenfold, and its website was so overloaded a lot of customers weren't able to complete their orders.

Hunts says Flowbee had already seen a boost in 2020 compared to recent years due to the coronavirus -- with barbershops and hair salons closed -- but that uptick was nothing compared to what he's calling "the Clooney effect."

The Flowbee VP tells us they've completely sold out and it will be at least 2-4 weeks before they can get supply back up to meet demand.

As for the Clooney boom ... Hunts says it was a huge surprise, because the company hasn't worked with him before and didn't even know he was a customer.

PROOF TO THE PEOPLE
ABC

Of course, Hunts is thrilled Clooney is a satisfied customer ... and loves that he speaks the truth about the product. As we reported ... George even gave a tutorial on 'Kimmel!'

Hunts says the company plans on sending Clooney a thank you package that will likely include some freebie Flowbees. He also hopes the style icon's support continues to encourage folks to save time, money and maybe even a life during the pandemic with its at-home haircutting system.

George Clooney It's Flowbee Time!!! Schools Kimmel on DIY Cuts

PROOF TO THE PEOPLE
ABC

George Clooney's giving all the doubters proof he really does cut his own hair ... with a Flowbee, and Jimmy Kimmel got to see it up close.

As you've no doubt heard, George made headlines by revealing he's a longtime user and fan of the DIY-haircutting device -- famously lampooned in "Wayne's World." It's shocking 'cause Clooney's hair's kinda been his thing, and no one knew ... which is why plenty of folks weren't buying it.

But, he did a live demo Thursday night as George and Jimmy each busted out their own Flowbee. Kimmel's a rookie, but the Cloons gave him a free tutorial on how it's done.

It seems this specific Flowbee has an extension on it that's too long for George's liking, but as he says ... all ya gotta do is turn the buzzer on and "go to town."

Looks pretty easy, but if you try it at home maybe pop in some earplugs ... the dang thing's loud!

*WARNING: Results WILL vary, and you almost certainly will NOT become the sexiest man alive ... no matter what Clooney's claiming.

Homophobic 'Karen' Bad Biz Reviews Pour In After Rant ... Yelp Gives Her a Break

Exclusive
HURLING OBSCENITIES

Gina Bisignano -- the latest "Karen" to let hate speech fly -- received major business backlash for her bigotry on Yelp ... where people loaded her page with negative reviews until postings got temporarily shut down.

Bisignano owns a beauty biz in Beverly Hills called Gina's Eyelashes and Skincare, so after seeing video of her spewing homophobic comments at an L.A. protest of COVID lockdowns ... it seems several outraged Internet users took it out on her shop's Yelp page.

It got flooded with bad reviews, and got so bad so quickly Yelp decided to temporarily suspend the option to leave a review.

If a person tries, they get this message instead -- "This business recently received increased public attention in the news, which often means people come to this page to post their views on the news rather than a first-hand consumer experience."

Here's a sample of some of the reviews that were left beforehand though ...

-- "Owner of this salon is a blatant racist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, conspiracy theorist, tar faced loser."

-- "If you want tarantula lashes and a corpse complexion, please call this bigot for your next KKK gathering."

-- "This place is great. They help create the illusion of beauty on the outside, so I can hide all my hateful, Q conspiracies, and homophobia on the inside."

Yelp says it's working to investigate whether this batch of new reviews "reflects actual consumer experiences rather than the recent events."

As we reported ... so far Gina's only response to the fallout from her public, anti-gay display is announcing on Facebook, "I was attacked online."

George Clooney I Cut My Own Hair ... Been Using Flowbee for Years!!!

George Clooney's been on the DIY-haircut hype long before the pandemic hit -- but he's resorted to what many consider a gimmick product to do it ... and he's been doing it for decades!!!

The actor made the revelation on CBS Sunday Morning -- he told Tracy Smith he's been using Flowbee for quite a while now. So all those dreamy Clooney 'dos you've seen of late ... all Flowbee.

If you're unfamiliar with what the hell that is ... it's a hair cutting device that's been getting hawked on infomercials since the late '80s. Flowbee is part hair clippers and part vacuum -- all you do is run it along your head, and presto!

It might look pretty damn goofy, but hey ... it works, according to George, anyway. And, the best part -- it's only 4 easy payments of $9.99 (prices subject to inflation).

In all seriousness, folks are shocked that George's great looks -- much of which can be attributed to his haircuts -- are the result of a device like Flowbee. You'd think the guy would be spending $200 to $300 per cut at some exclusive stylist in Italy, but no ... he does it himself and gets the job done in 2 minutes.

Funny enough, the Twitter account for George's new movie -- "The Midnight Sky" -- got in on the joke and dropped some Flowbee insight of their own ... writing they could neither confirm nor deny the use of Flowbee on the set.

Considering George says he's still got his trusty Flowbee lying around the house, we wouldn't put it past him to have brought it into the hair and makeup trailer every now and then.

Rudy Giuliani Super Sweaty for News Cameras ... Apparent Hair Dye Disaster!!!

Breaking News
SWEATIN' IT
Fox News

Rudy Giuliani's sweat-fest is stealing the spotlight from President Trump's election battle ... because he appears to have hair dye streaming down his face.

The man in charge of President Trump's legal fight to overturn the election results was sweating profusely throughout a news conference ... often taking breaks to wipe his face and visible beads of sweat on his forehead.

At one point, it got so bad ... streams of what looks like dark hair dye ran down both sides of his face.

As for what's actually being said at the news conference ... Giuliani's continuing to make baseless claims of rampant voter fraud and discrepancies in multiple states, with added ire for Michigan, Georgia and Pennsylvania.

It's truly been a sight to behold -- for reasons far beyond Rudy's bad dye job -- and he's perspiring so much, ya gotta wonder if he's battling an illness. It wouldn't be the first time a Trump-related event included an outbreak.

Brooks Koepka Yep, I Waxed My Ass After Losing Bet to Smokin' Hot GF

Breaking News
AS SMOOTH AS A PEACH

Brooks Koepka and Mr. Miyagi have something in common -- they both believe in a little "Wax on, wax off."

The PGA superstar did a little Q&A on IG with his girlfriend Jena Sims on Monday night ... where the golfer was asked about a rumor that he waxes his ass.

Not only did Brooks answer the question, he totally owned up to some cheeky body hair removal ... and even provided an explanation.

"It is very true," the 30-year-old said ... "I lost a bet to Jena!"

That's when Jena chimed in -- adding, "And, we may or may not have had some friends in attendance!"

Hot wax on the ass party?!!

Jena couldn't believe Brooks talked about it on social media -- saying, "That's a deepest, darkest [secret]."

To be fair, the secret was kinda out ... remember the his and hers thong photo from their 2019 trip to the Maldives?!

We shoulda known!!!

Brooks is currently the #12 ranked golfer in the world -- after winning the PGA Championship in both 2018 and 2019.

He was injured for most of the 2020 season but if he can bounce back from a butt waxing, we're confident he can rebound on the links, too.

Simon Cowell Orders Himself Set of New Chompers!!! ... During Back Recovery

Exclusive

Simon Cowell is still on the mend from his broken back -- and while he recovers, he decided to polish up his smile while he was at it ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the music exec and 'AGT' host recently got a new set of pearly whites from Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist Dr. Apa, at his private practice. We're told Simon came in last month looking for the makeover, and just had new veneers installed this past weekend.

Turns out, Simon was actually in need of a new set -- we're told he was doing away with older, temporary veneers he'd been rockin' -- but had one request ... less Simpson-y and more streamlined. In other words, he wanted a thinner, more natural-looking smile ... and sources say he even had a pic of his OG teeth for reference on the updated design.

After two appointments at three hours a pop, we're told Simon walked away happy as can be -- and even posed with the doc on his way out. As for cost ... our sources tell us Dr. Apa usually charges around $4,000 per tooth. Considering Simon got both upper and lower veneers in this job -- 28 teeth total, we're told -- that can certainly add up to a fat bill.

That said, it's unclear how much he ultimately paid.

The silver lining here -- it looks like SC is back up on his feet again after breaking his back a few months ago and undergoing a grueling surgery process to get it all fixed up. Word is the dude is still healing and in intense rehab mode right now to restrengthen those muscles.

In the meantime ... good for him for taking care of the rest of his body in one shot.

Brian Ortega UFC Star Shaves Off Luscious Locks ... For Korean Zombie Fight

Breaking News

6:56 AM PT -- Ortega's manager, Tiki Ghosn, says the fighter will now donate the shaved-off hair to Locks of Love ... ESPN's Brett Okamoto reported Friday.

#Awesome

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

The man with the best locks in the UFC no longer has hair ... Brian Ortega shaved off his beautiful salad for his bout with the Korean Zombie this weekend -- and we're heartbroken.

We just spoke with the 29-year-old a couple days ago, ... and his luscious slicked-back ponytail was still intact.

But, Ortega clearly broke out the razor in the last day or two ... showing up to weigh-ins bald as a cue ball!!!

Of course, Ortega is still handsome as hell ... but man, that hair was something!!

Unclear if Brian needed to ditch the mane to make weight ... back in 2017, he said he came close to shaving it off for the scale at UFC 214.

As for his thoughts back then on going bald? "I still look pretty regardless, I feel ... I woulda pulled it off!"

He's not wrong ... but, man, pour one out for that hairdo. Gone too soon.
