Ja Rule Andy King's Getting Jobs ... Finally, Some Good Out of Fyre!!!

2/20/2019 7:57 AM PST

Ja Rule's found a couple of Fyre Fest silver linings -- one involving event planner Andy King, who famously offered oral sex for crates of Evian, and the other has to do with Ja's business sense.

The rapper was at Newark Airport when Adam Glyn asked him if he had any insight on the infamous scene in Netflix's "Fyre" documentary ... where Andy King admitted he nearly took one for the team as the festival was imploding. 

Ja says he knew nothing about that happening at the time, but he was grinning from ear to ear after hearing Andy has now made a name for himself.

In fact, Ja Rule says even though he hasn't seen the Netflix doc, he'd love to see more good come out of it. 

Check out the clip ... the rapper -- who BTW is still feeling the Fyre -- says he learned a lot from the experience and even offers young visionaries and entrepreneurs some sage advice.

Travis Scott Thanks, St. Louis!!! (What? We're in KC??)

2/18/2019 2:04 PM PST

Sorry, Travis Scott -- something tells us you're not in Kansas City anymore -- which is info he coulda used before his Astroworld tour made a stop ... in St. Louis! Oops.

The hilarious blunder went down Sunday night as he was wrapping up his gig at Sprint Center. The crowd was roaring and fireworks were going off before Trav shot off, "St. Louis, I love you. Get home safe." Nice sentiment, but a bit misplaced because he was actually in Kansas City, Missouri.

Turns out Travis got ahead of himself -- he's actually gonna be in St. Louis Monday night. Hey, it happens to the best of 'em ... especially when you're living life on the road.

Some perspective ... after his STL gig, Travis will be in Indianapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee and Columbus ... all this week. So, it's easy to see how he got lost. No word if fans went into psycho mode after Travis' gaffe.

The mishap reminded us of this funny Southwest commercial and yes, we're sure Travis wanted to get away. Pretty sure he's flying private, though. Sorry, Southwest!

21 Savage Bailed On Gig ... After Complaining About a Gun

2/17/2019 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

21 Savage skipped out on a paid gig at a club after voicing complaints about the opening act and demanding he be allowed to carry his gun ... this according to the promoter who booked him. 

The promoter, Karen Smith, tells TMZ ... she booked 21 Savage for a fee of $17,000 to play a Sept. 2016 show at Bo'Maz Club in Hinesville, GA, but 21 and his crew bounced without saying a word.

The promoter tells us she caved and allowed him to carry his weapon. We're also told by someone who was at the show ... 21 groused about the opening act -- a local rapper -- and asked the DJ to cut him off but the DJ refused. 21 got angry, and he and his crew beat it.

In video from the club, obtained by TMZ, you see the local rapper performing on stage when 21 and his crew get up and leave ... before he performed a single song.   

We broke the story ... the promoter went to cops in October 2016 and filed paperwork to get a felony warrant against 21 Savage for theft by deception, claiming he walked off with $17k for a show that never went down.

The warrant was issued but sat for more than 2 years. After 21 was arrested by ICE on Super Bowl Sunday, the club owner went to the Sheriff and decided to pursue the criminal case. 

21 Savage turned himself in Friday morning and was booked for felony theft by deception. He was released within a half hour. 

We reached out to 21's lawyer, Abbi Taylor, and she doubled down on her claim that 21 has committed no criminal offense. We believe he'll end up paying the woman and if that's what she's after she'll probably drop the case. 

Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox Arrive in Cabo After Emergency Landing

2/16/2019 6:46 AM PST

Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox are living proof persistence pays off, because they finally made it to Cabo San Lucas after a failed first attempt.

Courteney, Molly Kimmel, Amanda Anka (Jason Bateman's wife) and 8 other women surprised Jen Friday with a trip to Mexico to celebrate her big 5-0. The party came to a grinding halt when their private jet lost a tire and had to circle for several hours to burn fuel before making an emergency landing in Ontario, CA.

The women stayed in the plane for almost an hour while another private jet was rounded up, and the ladies tried again and succeeded.

There was a buzz Brad Pitt was on the plane, which would have been awesome!!! Turns out he wasn't ... strictly a girls' weekend.  

DJ Khaled Days of Summer Cruise ... To Feature Cardi & Post Malone!!!

2/15/2019 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

DJ Khaled hosted a summer cruise music festival a couple years ago -- and now he's back with another one that'll feature Cardi B and Post Malone ... TMZ has learned.

Production sources tell us, DJK has teamed up with Cardi and Post to headline the summer cruise, which goes from Miami to the Bahamas and back again. The ship heads out on June 28, and returns on July 1 ... plenty of time for onboard debauchery.

Khaled teased the announcement on social media, which he'll officially make Friday afternoon.

Just a reminder ... Khaled hosted this same cruise fest back in 2017 with Future, Lil Wayne and A$AP Rocky -- calling it Summerfest Cruise at the time. They passed on back-to-back years, but apparently ... the demand is there to run it again in 2019. 

No word on ticket prices, but if a 4-day voyage at sea with Cardi and Post performing throughout sounds good ... the extra perks will win you over completely.

In addition to the shows, guests will have opportunities for meet and greets with performers, parties with the stars and even a discussion panel. There's also your standard cruise entertainment -- comedy shows, pool parties, casino games, nighttime events ... and a 24-hour buffet.

Oh ... and this is an 18 and over type deal too, so no kids allowed. Beats the hell out of a family Carnival trip, if you ask us. Okuurrrr?

Watson -- who ditched box seats to enjoy the show on the floor with his fellow ragers -- bounced up and down ... and went crazy to Scott's biggest hit!!!

Deshaun even wore a tie-dye Travis Scott shirt for the concert ... saying, "On another planet ..."

Of course, it is the offseason ... but Bill O'Brien had to be just a LITTLE BIT uneasy seeing his QB get banged around like that, right?!

Cardi B I <3 the Grind ... Pre-V-Day Show Proves It

2/14/2019 7:37 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B takes ZERO days off ... even after reuniting with her husband, winning a Grammy and having a social media meltdown -- talk about loving what you do, huh?

The Grammy winner was back at it Wednesday night at Dan Bilzerian's Valentine's Day party in Bel-Air, which was dubbed "Angels & Devils." Considering Cardi deactivated her IG this week over criticism related to her big win (and Nikki Minaj comparisons) ... she sure looked fine here, on all fronts.

She might be grinding harder than anyone in the game and her hubby, Offset, will testify. Check out how Cardi put it on him -- more evidence they're back.

Tyga also took to the stage during the V-Day bash, which also featured Quavo, Swae Lee, DJ Carnage ... and a ton of hotties in lingerie -- very little lingerie -- to celebrate.

Maybe Hallmark-made "holidays" ain't so bad after all.

EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Manziel ain't the only one in his family with moves -- his wife, Bre Tiesi Manziel, put her ass-shaking skills on display at a huge bash in Hollywood ... and we've got the footage. 

Mr. and Mrs. Manziel -- along with stars like Farrah Abraham and Steelo Brim -- hit up Avenue nightclub in Hollywood for the launch of Bre's lingerie line, Se Mouiller.

Tiesi -- who created and designed the lingerie -- has been working on the line for years. Last year, she threw a private party in L.A. to introduce the brand ... with huge stars like Diddy and Trey Songz.

And, on Tuesday night, she went hard -- dancing it up with her friends, including "Bad Girls Club" star Natalie Nunn ... who was also promoting her eyelash line, Natalie Lashes.

Of course, Johnny was on hand to support his lady -- especially when she was grinding up another lady friend. 

Good times!

KISS Farewell Tour ... Historic Show on Sunset Strip!!!

2/12/2019 7:30 AM PST

KISS is on their final tour ever -- or so they say -- and they kept plugging along Monday by going back in time and playing a club they'd never played before ... the legendary Whisky A Go Go, but the show really started out on the Sunset Strip.

The NYC face-painted boys marched across Sunset, from The London Hotel to the Whisky ... stopping traffic to pose in the middle of the street. Think Beatles on Abbey Road ... with way more makeup, hair and platform shoes.

Once inside, the band ran through a ton of their hits, including "Lick It Up" and "Detroit Rock City." Safe to say the packed house of about 500 loved it, along with the listeners on SiriusXM ... which aired the concert.

KISS cofounder Ace Frehley isn't with his former bandmates for this farewell tour ... something Gene Simmons was tight-lipped about prior to the show. As we reported, Gene claimed Ace got the boot for being unprofessional, but Ace fired back ... accusing Gene of groping his wife and being a sex addict.

Fun fact: If this really is the band's farewell, it's a damn good thing they played the Whisky, which has famously hosted the likes of The DoorsLed Zeppelin, and Janis Joplin. Good company to keep.

Travis Scott Fans Pissed Over Postponed Show ... Go Into Psycho Mode

2/12/2019 8:05 AM PST
Exclusive Details

8:05 AM PT -- Tulsa PD tells TMZ ... no arrests were made and no injuries were reported from the chaos. However, investigators are reviewing videos online and provided by witnesses, as well as the BOK Center's surveillance cameras, to try to identify people who vandalized the arena. If police can positively ID the vandals ... they will be charged.Travis Scott's concert in Oklahoma did not go well -- it was called off before it even started, and angry fans stuck around to voice their displeasure ... and to vandalize.

The rapper was set to perform a sold-out show for his Astroworld Tour at the BOK Center in Tulsa Monday night, but at the last minute the venue announced it would be postponed until March 26 due to "technical production issues."

Instead of heading home peacefully, a horde of Travis fans waited and grew more irritated outside the arena ... before one guy threw a water bottle, shattering a glass door.

More fans rushed at an entrance that was briefly opened by security and shouted, "Let us in!" ... but didn't get their wish. Cops dispersed pepper balls into the crowd after they began banging on the doors and moving metal barriers, and eventually ... everyone left unharmed.

For his part, Scott apologized to his fans shortly after the postponement announcement, explaining he didn't want to give them an incomplete show.

Trav's next gig is Wednesday night in Houston. He could use the hometown love.

Future Bails on Pre-Grammys Party Performance That Ciara & Russell Attended

2/12/2019 12:30 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Future bailed on a performance at Clive Davis' pre-Grammys party at the last minute -- maybe not coincidentally, considering Ciara and Russell Wilson were front and center at the event.

Eyewitnesses at Clive's Beverly Hilton bash Saturday night -- which was a who's who of Hollywood event ahead of Sunday's award show -- confirm Future was booked to perform, but hightailed it when his team realized his ex-fiancee and her new hubby were in the front row.

Our sources -- who were present during the exchange -- say someone in Future's camp accused the event organizers of being "messy" by having Ciara and Russ there, and said their guy wouldn't perform. We're told Future was briefed about it outside, and then dipped. 

HollywoodLife first reported Future's departure. Now, there's another side to this story -- sources close to Future tell us he didn't bail because of Ciara or RW. 

Our Future sources say the show was behind schedule by nearly an hour, and he and his team were instructed to shorten his performance significantly, which, we're told, Future wasn't down with. We're told he had no idea Ciara or Russ was there.

Believe who ya want ... but either way, it doesn't sound like Future and Ciara are gonna be sharing any oxygen anytime soon.

2019 Grammys A-List After-Parties Go Head-to-Head ... Who's Got the Biggest Fish?

2/11/2019 6:48 AM PST

After the 2019 Grammy Awards, all the biggest names in music dispersed to various after-parties -- the question ... whose party was the most poppin'???

At least five different get-togethers were going down at the same time late Sunday night all over L.A. Republic Records had a shindig, as did Universal and Sony. Even Mark Ronson threw something himself ... and don't forget the LiveXLive bash.

Each party had its fair share of big fish from the awards ceremony. Republic was able to lure a diverse crowd in Zedd, Paris Jackson, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner as well as Scottie Pippen. UMG's rager featured Earth, Wind & Fire, Eve, Kacey Musgraves and Terry Crews ... and Sony was able to bring in folks like Usher, John Mayer, Maren Morris and Miguel.

Ronson's party was a who's who too -- artists like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry swung by. And, the LiveXLive function had Charli XCX, Rick Ross and Sheck Wes there.

From the looks of these lineups -- we might have to give it to Republic ... or Universal ... or Sony. Or all of them, actually.

Jennifer Aniston Brad Pitt Attends Big 5-0 ... No Hard Feelings

2/10/2019 7:13 AM PST

Jennifer Aniston is turning 50, and what better way to celebrate than inviting your ex-hubby Brad Pitt to the shindig?

It's kinda a big deal ... because their 5-year marriage fell apart when he hooked up with Angelina Jolie and eventually married her.  

Brad snaked around most of the paparazzi Saturday night at the Sunset Tower hotel on the Sunset Strip but you see him from behind as he enters the building. BTW, it's Jen's favorite spot in town ... she's there all the time and, in case you're interested, loves the chicken salad.

Brad was in a holy custody war with Angelina, but this doesn't seem to be a case of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." From all appearances, Brad and Jen remained on friendly terms.

A bunch of other celebs showed up, including Robert Downey, Jr., Reese Witherspoon, Rande Gerber, Pharrell Williams, Keith Richards, Gwyneth Paltrow, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, George and Amal Clooney, David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Barbra Streisand and many others.

BTW ... Brad used to date Gwyneth, so he knew the room!

Jen turns 50 on Monday. Happy BD!!!
