Chester Bennington Photo Exhibit Draws Huge Crowds ... On His Birthday

3/21/2019 10:27 AM PDT

Chester Bennington can still attract a massive amount of people in the wake of his death -- just take a look at how many heads showed up to a pop-up gallery on his birthday.

Professional concert photographer Jim Louvau hosted a photo exhibit Wednesday night in the San Fernando Valley featuring shots he'd taken of the late Linkin Park frontman from over the years. It was aptly called Celebrating the Life of Chester Bennington.

The pop-up's date was no coincident either -- it fell on what would've been Chester's 43rd birthday ... March 20.

As you can tell, a lot of folks still care very deeply about Chester, as the event's first showing completely sold out ... forcing Jim to host a second showing, which also sold out. All proceeds are being donated to Chester's wife, Talinda Bennington’s suicide prevention organization ... 320 Change Direction

TMZ broke the story ... Chester died by suicide in the summer of 2017. He hanged himself at his Palos Verdes Estates home, just outside Los Angeles.

Chester is survived by his wife and 6 children. He was 41 at the time of his death.

Michael Jackson Carried by Jesus ... Owning the Devil

3/21/2019 7:25 AM PDT

An art exhibit featuring Michael Jackson right now is controversial enough, but when the King of Pop is depicted as a real king, a holy figure and gets mixed up with Jesus ... things get extra dicey.

Jackson is the focus of an art show at the Bundeskunsthalle museum in Bonn, Germany called "Michael Jackson: On the Wall" ... and the timing couldn't be more curious in the wake of "Leaving Neverland" and the #MuteMichael movement.

The artwork's provocative as hell, too -- literally -- with one piece by David LaChapelle called "American Jesus: Archangel Michael Jackson" showing MJ with angel wings standing on the devil.

Another one of the artist's 'American Jesus' pieces -- titled 'Hold Me, Carry Me Boldly' -- portrays Jackson being held by Jesus. It's akin to Michelangelo’s Pietà sculpture, which portrays the crucified Jesus being cradled by his mother Mary. 

There's also a piece by artist Kehinde Wiley swapping out the face of Spain's King Philip II for Michael's.

You get the picture.

As you know ... Jackson's characterized as the opposite of a Christlike figure in the HBO documentary, which includes disturbing allegations from 2 of his accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

The impact of the doc has been wide-reaching, with many folks calling for an all-out Jackson ban ... and even his episode of "The Simpsons" has been pulled.

Not in Germany though.

'Bachelor' Alum Lauren B. Flaunts Ripped Bod ... Maui Vacay with BF Chris Lane!!!

3/19/2019 10:53 AM PDT

'Bachelor' alum Lauren Bushnell and her country star BF are putting their bods on display and, perhaps, sending a message to their fans: skip Taco Tuesday, get your ass ready for summer!

Lauren B. and Chris Lane are soaking up some rays while on vacay in Maui. They played a little corn hole and looked every bit the perfectly fit couple. She wore the hell out of a navy blue bikini ... and laughed it up with the "Take Back Home Girl" singer, who kept it cool with board shorts, shades and a cap. 

BTW ... Chris most definitely looks familiar to 'Bachelor' fans. He performed his hit song, "For Her," on Nick Viall's season. 

Lauren, of course, was the winner on Ben Higgins' season but they split back in May 2017. A little over a year later, she started dating Chris, whose previous GF was Lauren Barr ... another 'Bachelor' hopeful from Ben's season. Yeah, Chris has a type.

He and Lauren started dating last November and it looks like they're still going strong.

Just like their bods.

Prince Charles Rockin' His Spring Break Trunks With Camilla in Barbados

3/19/2019 10:44 AM PDT

Prince Charles is getting in on the spring break action ... splashing around on a Caribbean beach with his bae. 

The Prince and Camilla are busting out their swimwear for some fun on the island of Barbados. Gotta give props to the 70-year-old for rocking some seriously trendy floral trunks. Go ahead ... soak it in. We don't get to see Chuck in board shorts that often.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are on a 12-day tour of the Caribbean. After getting some Royal business out of the way, Charles and Camilla hit the sand Monday -- armed with a ton of sunscreen, we hope.  

Note to the Prince ... this would be a perfect time to follow your mom's lead and do it for the Gram!!!

Alessandra Ambrosio Sexy Curves And Volleyball Serves

3/18/2019 12:30 PM PDT

Alessandra Ambrosio is serving up a little sex on the beach ... looking stunning as ever during a game of beach volleyball. 

We got pics and video of the retired Victoria's Secret supermodel putting her amazing curves to work, having fun in the sun over the weekend at a beach in Los Angeles. Mother nature gets an assist on this one for turning up the heat so Alessandra could turn heads in a skimpy black bikini. 

The mom of 2 is about to celebrate her 38th birthday ... and she's looking fine as hell! We're convinced this MILF could still work the runway.

Alessandra isn't afraid to get down and dirty ... diving for balls and laying it all out on the court. Sexy beach vball sessions are kinda her thing.

The icing on the cake ... Alessandra shaking her cake by the ocean!!!

Justin & Hailey Bieber Oughta Get Pinched at the Beach ... No Green for St. Paddy's?!!

3/17/2019 5:49 PM PDT

Justin and Hailey Bieber were pressing their luck Sunday, 'cause they opted not to wear any green to the beach in honor of St. Patrick's Day ... tsk, tsk.

The couple hit Laguna Beach with their pup in tow, where, at first, Hailey was wearing a checkered flannel while JB went bare-chested ... showing off his tats in blue and grey trunks. Hailey eventually lost the shirt and revealed her killer beach bod in a pink bikini. 

They got in the water too ... and then got hopped right back out. Chilly much?

Clearly, they look great. But again ... no obvious shades of green that we can see here. They coulda easily gotten nipped by some overzealous kids -- and there was at least one little girl nearby. No sign of a pinch though.

More importantly, it's good to see Justin enjoying himself ... especially since he's reportedly getting treatment for depression. His mom, Pattie Mallette, wouldn't confirm that to us, but says she's proud at how he's handled himself under pressure.

A day at the beach with your smokin' hot wife always helps, we're sure.

Did you know ... Patrick Mahomes' girlfriend is more of a gym rat than he is?! 

It's true -- Brittany Matthews is a budding social media fitness star -- and she showed off the fruits of her labor during an awesome girls trip to Hawaii. 

Brit -- along with a bunch of her girlfriends -- flew to Hawaii for a tropical bachelorette party (sans the Chiefs QB) ... where they partied and hit the beach in tiny bikinis. 

In fact, all of the girls on the trip had custom swimsuits with their nicknames on them -- Brittany's read, "Fit Brit."

Don't worry, besides relaxing in paradise, Brittany found plenty of time to exercise -- hiking and hitting the gym, because NO DAYS OFF!!!

By the way, Mahomes and Brittany have been together for years. They started dating back in high school and continued dating while she was attending the University of Texas at Tyler and Patrick was at Texas Tech. 

In fact, the two were just spotted all over L.A. a few weeks ago, hitting Lakers games and all the finest Hollywood hot spots.

It all begs the question ... who gets a ring first -- Pat or Brit?!?!?
