Drake to the NFL's Final 4 Fine, I'm Cursed And Now, So Are You

1/20/2019 11:32 AM PST

Drake has finally realized that if he sides with any one sports team, they'll probably lose -- so he's sending the final 4 NFL squads good vibes by equally cursing all of them.

We're kidding, of course ... and clearly, so is Drizzy. He posted a photo of himself late Saturday night wearing a sweater with patches bearing all four remaining NFL teams --the L.A. Rams, the New England Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs and the New Orleans Saints.

He captioned his pic ... "For everyone who believes in the Drake curse good luck tmrw."

In case you're unfamiliar ... Drake has a pretty bad streak of supporting teams ... and those teams being doomed with losing records or big losses in general (just ask the University of Alabama's football team, they're his latest victim).

Drake has also supported Kentucky basketball (title-less since 2012), the Toronto Raptors (zero finals appearances), Conor McGregor (who got smashed up by Khabib) and Serena Williams (who lost at Wimbledon last year). 

As for this latest pledge of allegiance ... it's probably a good idea to remain neutral. Smart call, D.

Oprah Her 'In My Feelings' Challenge ... Is One for the Ages

1/19/2019 2:53 PM PST

Oprah's a little late to the Drake party, but she's got her own take on his viral dance challenge that'll definitely have you feeling some type of way ... weak with laughter.

O was doing a photo shoot this weekend for the new cover of February's Oprah Magazine issue, and it looks like there'll be a spread that captures some of her best dance moves to "In My Feelings."

Her official Oprah Magazine IG account even had a message for Drizzy ... "#Drake, we think it's time to remix #InMyFeelings to, 'Op-rah, do you love me? Are you riding?'" 

Her version is certainly a lot safer than other people's spin on it, and perhaps unsurprisingly ... Oprah's got some killer moves in the old tool belt! 

No official word from Drake yet, but ya know he's gotta be loving the huge plug from O herself. #ScorpionSZN continues it seems ... even 6 months later.

David Arquette Pooh-Poohs Wrestling Tampon Stunt ... 'I Didn't Like It'

1/8/2019 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

David Arquette is open-minded when it comes to pushing the envelope in pro wrestling -- but says the female wrestler who pulled a fake bloody tampon from her pants last month during a match went too far. 

The video of the stunt has gone viral ... wrestler Priscilla Kelly was taking on another wrestler named Tuna at the Suburban Fight event in L.A. on Dec. 30 when she reached down below and whipped out the feminine hygiene product and shoved it in Tuna's mouth. 

The crowd started chanting, "You sick f**k."

"I didn't like it," Arquette told us in L.A. ... "That's not my style."

Arquette appreciated the fact that Kelly's stunt has raised her profile in the wrestling community -- but says there are other ways to make a splash without having to pull anything out of your genitals. 

As for Priscilla, she said she had no intentions of going viral ... noting, "I just thought it was funny."

But, she's suggested that the blowback from fans is based in sexism. 

"Penis is funny and awesome," she tweeted ... "A vagina is disgusting and trashy. #Equality?"

U.S. Open Chicken Tender Fan Cluck You ... I'm Hawking My Cola Sauce!!!

1/7/2019 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The U.S. Open fan who caused a collective gag when she dunked her chicken tenders in soda is now making it possible for you to indulge ... and if you think the food combo makes you nauseous, check out her music video.

Alexa Greenfield, tells TMZ ... she's about to launch her new product -- Cola Sauce! She's unveiling her product 2 ways -- with a video that rivals "Thriller," and an appearance at a chicken joint.

Alexa will make a personal appearance at Hill Country Chicken in NYC on January 26 and 27. It's not just any ol' chicken joint ... it the place she bought the tenders that made her famous.

Truth be told ... the video's kinda fun. It instructs the not faint of heart on how to properly tenderize your tenders with the soda of your choice.

Alexa's going full bore ... she's launching Cola Sauce on her website next month.

With Wimbledon looming ... can fish filets be far behind?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Congresswoman Dancing in D.C. ... Claps Back At GOP!!!

1/4/2019 9:57 AM PST

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking her dance routines to our nation's capital -- brushing off her GOP haters and showcasing the dance moves they shaded ... right outside her Congressional office.

The freshly sworn-in Congresswoman from New York posted this clip Friday morning in response to a right-wing Twitter account digging up video of her dancing with friends back in college. Alexandria said, "I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous. Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too!"

ICYMI ... an old clip showing AOC happily dancing on a roof with other Boston University students surfaced online Wednesday, the day before she was sworn into Congress. The clip was clearly meant to be a smear, though it actually sparked some strong defenses in support of Alexandria. 

We got AOC right after her hallway dance, and she was in good spirits! She even fangirled out for a minute about members of "The Breakfast Club" loving her moves ... before she returned to her congressional duties.

She who dances last ... 

Aaron Schlossberg Sued by Ex-Client ... Your Racist Rant Hurt Our Biz!!!

1/3/2019 1:59 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Schlossberg is the NYC lawyer who infamously went on a racist rant against restaurant employees for speaking Spanish ... and he's also now the defendant in a lawsuit filed by one of his ex-clients.

Niche Music Group wants Schlossberg to pay for screwing it over, because he was hired to rep the recording label in litigation against Sony Music Entertainment. The rub here ... Schlossberg was hired in January 2018 ... before his racist rant in May went viral.

Niche claims Schlossberg's conduct not only reflected poorly on him, but discredited his clients, and as its legal counsel ... he should have known better.

The label says Schlossberg's off-the-wall attack caused its reputation to take a blow and cost it future business opportunities.

You'll recall, Schlossberg threatened to call ICE on Fresh Kitchen employees when he heard them speaking Spanish on the job. 

In the suit, Niche says it had to spend a lot of time and money replacing Schlossberg in order to continue its case against Sony. The label is suing him for breach of contract and legal malpractice ... and wants at least $50k in damages.

We reached out to Schlossberg ... no word back so far.

Notre Dame vs. Clemson Tigers Bald Eagle Lands on ND Fan in Stands ... That's Gotta Hurt

12/29/2018 2:20 PM PST

A Notre Dame fan became a human perch at the Cotton Bowl Classic after a bald eagle swooped down and landed on his shoulder. 

The incredible (and probably incredibly painful) moment went down Saturday ahead of the Fighting Irish's game against the Clemson Tigers at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. Sports Illustrated writer Ross Dellenger caught the landing on camera. 

Somewhat surprisingly, the fan was able to keep his composure as the bird stood on him for nearly 20 seconds. It flapped its wings a bit as people whipped out their phones to take pictures, and the guy kinda seemed more giddy than terrified in the moment.

The eagle eventually flew away ... and obviously left the crowd wowed by its close encounter. For the record ... an adult bald eagle's talons can exert a force of up to 400 pounds of pressure per square inch when hunting. They're also really, really sharp. 

Smile through the pain, bud. It's a once in a lifetime thing, after all.

Trump Supporter Triggers Epic Vape Store Meltdown ... Gets Employee Fired

12/29/2018 1:54 PM PST

A Trump supporter who was refused service at a vape shop captured what might be one of the craziest meltdowns we've ever seen ... yeah, this is just nuts.

Georgia resident Ian Furgeson tried buying something at Xhale City this week in Tucker, GA -- about half an hour outside of Atlanta -- and was apparently told to GTFO by the store employee ... who didn't want to sell anything to a Trump supporter. Furgeson was decked out in MAGA gear, BTW. 

Well, things escalated quickly from there. Furgeson started recording the encounter, and the employee told him to stop or he'd call the cops.

Furgeson egged the guy on, telling him to do it ... and then the employee exploded with a "F*** OFF!" The vape store worker's breakdown only got worse from there, but weirdly enough ... he eventually calmed down and agreed to sell to Furgeson just to get him out. 

Furgeson mocked him by saying, "Capitalism wins again" and ordered the employee to ring him up ... which the guy must not have liked, 'cause he changed his mind and became even more enraged ... again telling Furgeson to leave.

Furgeson eventually left empty-handed and posted the video to Facebook, which went viral. He later went on to say that someone at the company reached out to apologize and assured him the employee had been fired. 

Generally speaking, private businesses have the right to refuse to service to people, so long as they're not discriminating based on federally protected classes, like race, religion, national origin, etc. But, the employee's actions here clearly weren't in line with his former employer's policy.

The company reportedly put out a statement on the matter, saying it values its clients and treats them with respect and dignity ... "regardless of their political views."

Major League Eating We Wanna Eat That 2,800 Pound Steer ... in the Name of Sports!!

11/29/2018 9:34 AM PST

You know that big ass steer in Australia that went viral for being the biggest freakin' thing you've ever seen?

Major League Eating -- the competitive eating org that brought you food-guzzling superstars like Joey Chestnut, Matt Stonie and Takeru Kobayashi -- wants to eat him. 

"Knickers" has become a viral sensation after reports pegged his height and weight at 6'4" and 2,800 pounds. He's a beast. 

The MLE says it believes the animal could be too large to handle at a normal meat processing facility ... so they'd like to help out -- but butchering him and serving him themselves at an outdoor BBQ. 

"Knickers is an extraordinary Holstein and we hope to pay honor by eating him in historic fashion," MLE Chair George Shea said.

"As a point of clarification, we would not consume the stomach because none of our eaters care for tripe."

So ... how many of the MLE's best eaters would it take to finish off good ole, Knickers??

The org estimates it'll take 20(!!!!) of it's best food fighters -- plus donut eating world champion Badlands Booker

Holy cow. (sorry, had to)

You can get your hands on a drawing -- printed on silk paper -- for around $40. Business has been so good ... celebs are now lining up to work with her, including Willow Smith.
