Kanye West Sunday Service from Coachella ... Spiritual, Emotional & Quite a Show!!!

4/21/2019 12:08 PM PDT

11:50 AM PT -- Kanye's Service has wrapped up ... after an upbeat and emotional couple hours with a lot of help from his friends.

The final hour featured DMX giving a prayer, Chance the Rapper performing "Ultralight Beam" and a huge rendition of "Jesus Walks." At one point it looked like several members of the choir, including Kanye, were moved to tears.

Kylie and Travis were apparently feeling it too ... and were moved to a little PDA. Happy Easter, everybody!

11:05 AM PT -- Though the Service kicked off at 9 AM, Kanye wasn't revealed on Coachella's fisheye lens stream 'til about 9:50, and he didn't get on the mic for another hour after that ... when he performed "All Falls Down." He followed it up by premiering his new song, "Water," with Ty Dolla $ign

He's also rocking purple hair. 

Not that Ye hasn't been busy the whole time -- he's been dancing, playing piano and directing the choir ... while tens of thousands of festival attendees gather around. The show is still going too.

Other highlights so far include the choir and band performing "Beautiful Morning," "Power," "Blood on the Leaves" and Stevie Wonder's "As." Teyana Taylor and Chance the Rapper also performed, and celebs spotted in the crowd include Kim, KhloeKendallKylie and Travis Scott, and La La Anthony.Kanye West is ready to preach his version of the gospel for all the folks at Coachella ... and TMZ will be streaming live when it begins at around 9 AM PT.

Ye will host his Sunday Service, which has become a thing in L.A., attracting lots of celebs. It's more music than preaching, which may be a reason why some not-so-religious people have become believers. Kim Kardashian West was getting the family ready to attend bright and early.

A brand new stage was set up in the campground for Ye, and everyone with a wristband is welcome. Event producers are expecting upwards of 100,000 people. Take that, Joel Osteen.

The Sunday Service will feature a massive choir, orchestra and, we're told, other surprises. In weeks past he's performed both gospel songs as well as some of his hit songs.

During a recent service ... Kanye paid homage to Nipsey Hussle by playing audio of Nipsey delivering inspirational thoughts. It was one hell of a show.

Idris Elba DJ's at Coachella Week 2 This Is How It's Done!!!

4/21/2019 7:10 AM PDT

Idris Elba has settled into his new role as a DJ, looking relaxed and confident as he played to a packed house Saturday night at Coachella, Week 2.

The crowd crammed into the Yuma tent as they watched Idris prepare to start his set. It's fun to watch him fire up, talking to the crowd and futzing with his equipment.

Everyone loved it ... it's turned out to be a highlight of the festival, which has come under fire for going way too pop this year.  

Kanye will probably steal the show a little later Sunday morning with his Sunday Service ... TMZ will live stream the Easter festivities beginning at 8:30 AM PT. 

Childish Gambino Fires Off Brand New Show How You Like Me Now, Coachella?!?

4/20/2019 10:40 AM PDT

Childish Gambino's performance for weekend 2 at Coachella was lit ... literally.

The rapper headlined day 1 Friday night at Coachella and it was fiery set ... literally and figuratively. For starters, last night's performance was completely different from last week's show. He also seemed to be in a friendlier mood this time around. He told the audience last week to put their phones away, but this time around he was in the crowd taking selfies and told the crowd they were dope.

Check out the vid ... Gambino closed his set with a display of fireworks and with his hit "Redbone." 

Childish also got surprised backstage after he performed "This is America." When that set was over, he ran into Chance the Rapper and they bro'd out. Chance never took the stage nor performed. But, clearly, that didn't matter to Childish, who was stoked to see him.

Will Smith I May Be 50 But I Can Rock the House ... Performs with Jaden at Coachella

4/20/2019 7:34 AM PDT

Will Smith surprised the Coachella crowd Friday night during week 2 of the festival by joining his son, Jaden, onstage ... and he did not disappoint. The crowd went nuts. 

Will performed Jaden's hit song, "Icon" at the Sahara tent to a packed crowd. It's interesting ... you may recall, Will did a parody of the music video last year, which became a pretty big hit as well.  

Willow also performed with Jaden, as Jada Pinkett Smith watched in the crowd with approval. Before jumping onstage, Will was next to Jada filming his son and daughter onstage.

Done Did ‘dat! #coachella

A post shared by Will Smith (@willsmith) on

Once up there, Will said, "This is my first time on the Coachella stage, ain't no way I'm going off like that. Run it one more time!"

Remember ... last week Jaden brought out Jordyn Woods, which was a real statement. As you know, the Kardashians are furious at her over the whole Tristan Thompson thing, but Jada came out strong supporting Jordyn and even unfollowing Kris, Khloe and Kim. This was a further showing of support for Jordyn and presumably evidence of the fractured relationship between the Smiths and the Kardashians.

EXCLUSIVE

The second weekend of Coachella is gonna be lit, because there are tons of deals for stoners looking to save some green on their greens ... so prepare to smell the weed smoke from miles away!!!

Potheads get to double dip in Coachella Valley today, because the famous music festival falls on April 20 and delivery services and dispensaries outside the festival grounds are rolling out some sweet discounts for anyone planning to roll up some tree.   

Smoking is not technically allowed inside Coachella ... but there are plenty of reasons to take a break and blaze up. 

We did the legwork and found the best promotions, so you don't have to ... because the last thing weed smokers need on 4/20 is another task between puffs. 

Wanna get 2 birds stoned at once? We found a couple dispensaries planning ahead for your munchies, combining food specials with deals on dank. 

Palm Royale Collective in Palm Desert is catering food for its 4/20 bash, and a DJ will be spinning tunes as they give away cash prizes and gift bags. There's a canned food drive going on too, and you get 10% off your purchase if you bring 2 cans. All the canned goods go to a local women's shelter.

Green Cross Pharma in Cathedral City is offering 50% discounts on all buds and accessories starting at noon, and they'll keep you fed and entertained while you shop with tacos and music. The dispensary also has a 20% discount on vape batteries and a 10% discount on all vapes, edibles, topicals and tinctures.

And, check out these 4/20 promotions for those penny-pinching potheads:  

The Leaf El Paseo dispensary in Palm Desert is giving customers 30% off all Flow Kana products and selling $110 ounces of hybrid strains Gelato and Scooby Doo Dog Walker. Prefer your THC another way? Buy a Beboe vape pen and get the second at half price. For edibles, there's a special Big Pete's Treats pack for $42 (regular price, $78). 

Leef Industries delivery service tells us they're slashing prices and selling $30 quarters (7 grams), and anyone who buys an 8th (3.5 grams) gets another for half price. If you spend $50 on buds, you'll get a top shelf pre-roll for a buck!!!

For those big spenders, $75 of ganja gets you a gift bag worth another $75. Hopefully, all that green makes ya lucky, because Leef Industries is raffling off prizes every 3 hours. 

Festival-goers get special discounts from The Micro Buddery ... just use promo code Coachella2019 for your chronic delivery.

Nobody goes to Coachella just for the music ... and this year you can go for the weed!!!

Olivia Jade Who Needs College? Good Times at YouTube Star's Party

4/19/2019 7:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Olivia Jade's plans for higher education might be on hold ... but it doesn't look like she's sweating it.

Lori Loughlin's younger daughter was hanging at the home of YouTube star David Dobrik Thursday night in Studio City, CA ... with a big smile as some kitchen shenanigans were going down.

We're told Olivia was there with some of her fellow internet celebs, having a good ol' time, but being careful ... asking the group to make it a cellphone-free zone.

Clearly, that didn't happen ... another YouTuber, Heath Hussar, took some vids to chronicle the evening.

Olivia can't be too mad ... these are her peeps and this is what they do. You'll recall ... she has nearly 2 million YT subscribers herself, along with 1.4 million Instagram followers, and made it known she was much more interested in being a famous internet personality than a USC student.

The irony, of course, is that Olivia's parents are facing serious charges and jail time for allegedly bribing her way into college ... and now she's immersing herself back in the world she always wanted to be in anyway.

The people there don't seem to have any problems being associated with her, either ... college bribery scandal be damned.

Kourtney Kardashian 40 Going on 20!!! Famous Friends Get Down

4/19/2019 7:24 AM PDT

If Kourtney Kardashian turned 40 you wouldn't know it based on her never-aging looks ... but the big giveaway was her HUGE birthday bash populated by her famous friends.

Kourtney celebrated the big 4-0 Thursday night in L.A. in one of the most epic celebrations ever, or at least this month. Kim, KhloeKris JennerKylie and Kendall were all there ... as was Kanye and TONS of other celebs ... including French Montana, Paris Hilton and Larsa Pippen. Even her ex, Younes Bendjima, was partying it up.

A bunch of Kourtney's friends also shared some of their best memories of her:

No expense was spared for the swanky shindig ... the Don Julio 1942 bottles were flowing as were the inside jokes inscribed on napkins. If you're a huge fan of "Keeping up with the Kardashians," you know what's up. But, here's what takes the cake ... the damn cake itself!!! It's a massive desert showing off Kourtney's very own cakes.

Robin Thicke and Sia sang Kourtney "Happy Birthday" and a great time was had by all.

Keep aging like fine wine, Kourtney.

Lil Dicky Releases Massive Celeb Single ... Bieber the Baboon and Ariana the Zebra!!!

4/18/2019 9:33 PM PDT

Lil Dicky just dropped his massive celebrity collab single, "Earth," and it's got just about every celeb under the sun from Justin Bieber to Leonardo DiCaprio.

The song -- a call to action to help save the planet -- features a lengthy animated music video with celebs as plants, animals and even diseases with the chorus, "We love the Earth, It is our planet."

Bieber is the first celeb appearance, playing a baboon and singing the lyrics, "Hi, I'm a baboon, I'm like a man just less advanced and my anus is huge." The song is both silly and has a purpose of uniting people ... urging listeners to value their neighbors and take steps to stop climate change.

The animation is pretty impressive ... Ariana Grande is a zebra, Halsey a lion cub, Wiz Khalifa a skunk, Snoop Dogg a weed plant, Adam Levine a group of vultures, Shawn Mendes a rhino and Ed Sheeran lends his voice to a Koala ... just to name a few.

Some of the more odd characters include Kevin Hart as Kanye West and Lil Yachty HPV cells. DiCaprio plays himself and dubs "Earth" the best song he's ever heard. 

TMZ broke the story ... it's Bieber's first musical feature of 2019 ... and the entire project certainly doesn't disappoint. 

Cypress Hill Blown Away by Hollywood Star ... More to Celebrate on 420!!!

4/18/2019 2:25 PM PDT

Cypress Hill is living proof that blazing trails, and trees, can lead you to great things ... like your very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The rap group straight outta South Gate, Cali got their star Thursday on Hollywood Blvd., and the guys tell us they were "blown away" by the honor. Sen Dog says it's something none of them ever expected.

B-Real got even more reflective, talking about how far they've come since they were young men coming up in the biz together. He also got real about the obstacles they've faced over the years due to their unabashed love for cannabis.

Cypress Hill's scheduled to perform at a 4/20 event up in Vancouver Saturday, but there's now pushback from organizers who think a big concert is taking things too far.

The hip-hop legends admit there's an abundance of 4/20 celebrating going on these days, but they're all for it ... and still have every intention of lighting up Vancouver.

Ivanka Trump Ethiopian Dancing Machine!!!

4/17/2019 7:27 AM PDT

Ivanka Trump's doing her best to blend in with locals in Ethiopia, and that means busting out her best dance moves -- and, so far, the locals seem impressed! Or, maybe they're just being polite.

Ivanka touched down in the East African nation Monday and during a reception, she didn't hesitate to get loose on the floor -- putting her hips, shoulders and arms into it as she danced with one energetic guy -- and, at least, seemed to be having a great time.

President Trump's senior adviser, and daughter, is on a 4-day trip to Africa -- hitting Ivory Coast as well as Ethiopia -- to promote a global women's project for economic development. While the trip got off to a fun start ...you gotta wonder if her father's infamous words will come up at some point.

You'll recall, the Prez once used the term "shithole countries" to describe African nations. 

Ivanka might wanna work on her tap dancing too.

Zedd & Olivia Culpo New Couple Alert?!? Flirty Coachella Weekend!!!

4/17/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Zedd and Olivia Culpo are THIS close to setting off the "New Couple Alert" ... 'cause they sure looked like a couple of crazy kids very much into each other after getting all cozy at Coachella!!!

We're told the famous Russian-German DJ and the former Miss Universe were cuddling in the artist area during Ariana Grande's set at Coachella. Check out the vid ... it appears Zedd had his arms around Olivia as Grande performed "God is a woman."

Witnesses tell us they were together for the whole set. His arms were around her as they swayed together. She would lean her head back on his chest ... the universal code for "I'm into you."

And, get this ... Zedd had a performance scheduled a few hours before Ariana's. When he went onstage ... guess who was backstage? Yup ... Olivia and her hot friends. But, here's what else is interesting ... this fling seems to come just days after Olivia was spotted with another star ... NHL's Aaron Varos.

Olivia and the New York Rangers star were on a double date just last week at Soho Hollywood. They were hanging with her best friend Cara Santana and Jesse Metcalfe. So, ya gotta wonder ... was Olivia's date with Varos a one-off and is Zedd more her jam???

Whatever the case ... one thing that seems certain -- Danny Amendola's in her rear-view mirror.

Le'Veon Bell Reps Jet Life At Nightclub Performance

4/16/2019 12:05 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Le'Veon Bell wants to show off his love for the Jets wherever he goes ... repping his new team while performing at a nightclub over the weekend ... and TMZ Sports has the footage!!

The $52.5 million man showed some serious Gang Green loyalty during his 20-minute performance at HQ2 Nightclub at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City ... showing off his new team's logo on the big screen and even starting a massive J-E-T-S chant!!

Bell fittingly performed songs like "Lotto" and "Talk of the Town" during his set... and we're told the crowd loved it.

The NFL superstar definitely ain't shy of getting onstage and performing in front of people ... but he sure as hell didn't show love like this for the Steelers.

Jacquees Drops $40K on Bday Party Fit For 'King'

4/16/2019 10:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

How does the self-proclaimed "King of R&B" celebrate his 25th birthday??? By throwing down $40,000 for a lavish dinner party at a high-end steakhouse!!!

Jacquees pulled out all the stops Monday night for his bday bash ... renting out a private room on the first floor of Mastro's in Bev Hills and hosting dozens of his closest friends for a banquet fit for a king.

Jacquees was lording over the dinner table as he chowed down on oysters, king crab legs and steaks ... washing it down with Ace of Spades and Hennessy. In true royal extravagance, Jacquees and his pals sampled every single appetizer on the menu!!!

As you can see, Jacquees kept the king theme going for his custom bday cakes ... swapping out candles for a crown on one, and slapping an image of him wearing a crown on another.

Jacquees dropped a fat bag celebrating himself, but he also secured a couple too ... his rapper girlfriend, Dreezy, gave him a huge Louis Vuitton bag and his manager, Johnathan, gave him a slightly smaller version. 

The feast started at 8 PM and didn't end until 1 AM ... Jacquees and co. were having so much fun, they kept the staff working an hour overtime to keep the party going. 

Actress Lala Milan and singer Sevyn Streeter were among the guests ... and Jacquees got special bday video messages from Ty Dolla $ign, Chris Brown and Birdman.
