Post Malone 'Wow' Viral Dancer Goes VIP ... You're In My Music Video!!!

3/20/2019 8:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Post Malone really takes care of his fans ... especially ones who pull off epic dance moves to his songs.

ICYMI -- Mike Alancourt, a 40-year-old bald, bearded man from 1 Vibe Dance in Jacksonville, FL went viral earlier this month after Posty, Will Smith and other celebs shared a video of him slayin' on the dance floor to the rapper's hit track, "Wow."

Malone was so impressed, he flew Mike out to Phoenix on Sunday to do some background dancing at his concert. They also shot dance scenes with Mike to be included in the "Wow." music vid ... which just dropped late last night.

We're told Post had already shot most of the video, but as you can see ... Mike still gets some serious face time, especially as a last-minute addition.

Mike's dance teacher and owner of the studio, Jen Colvin, also made the trip to hang out with Post ... on the rapper's dime.

Pretty incredible story ... and it all started with this.

L.A. Rams 'Get Back' Coach Charged W/ Sexual Battery

3/15/2019 2:37 PM PDT
Breaking News

L.A. Rams "Get Back" coach, whose job is to physically restrain head coach Sean McVay from stepping on the field, is now in real hot water ... he's been charged with sexual battery. 

His name is Ted Rath -- and he went viral during the 2018 season thanks to a highlight reel showing him constantly pulling McVay toward the bench so he wouldn't get run over by players and refs. 

Rath -- who's also the team's strength and conditioning coach -- has been hit with 3 misdemeanor sexual battery charges stemming from an alleged incident on June 15, 2018. 

Officials tell TMZ Sports the incident took place at a private residence in Moorpark, CA ... with the alleged victim claiming Rath groped her multiple times without her consent.

The Rams addressed the charges on Friday ... saying, "We take these allegations very seriously."

The Rams added ... "Once the charges were filed, we decided Ted would take a leave of absence from the team as this matter works its way through the justice system.” 

Rath is facing more than a year behind bars if convicted ... and he would have to register as a sex offender.

Rath is due back in court next month.

English Soccer Player Sucker Punch by Rival Fan Helps Him Score Game-winning Goal

3/10/2019 12:19 PM PDT

The opposite of punch-drunk must've been what this English pro soccer player was feeling after getting attacked by a rival fan ... 'cause he sure looked clear-headed when he scored the game-winning goal some 45 minutes later.

Aston Villa's star midfielder, Jack Grealish, was bum-rushed Sunday by a Birmingham City fan who rushed the field in the early part of the first half and sucker punched him in the dome. The guy got a running start to the hit and knocked Grealish down in the process.

The Birmingham fan was quickly subdued and yanked off the field by security. He was later arrested and hauled off to jail, according to local authorities. 

Funny enough, Grealish went on to score the game-winning goal against Birmingham City in the second half of the game, clinching the W for his squad in a 1-0 victory. The goal itself was pretty sweet too ... a left-footed shot to the bottom corner. 

Birmingham definitely were not sore losers either -- in fact, the team issued a statement after the game apologizing to Grealish and Aston Villa at large for what one of their own fans did ... saying the dude would be banned from St. Andrew's Stadium for life. 

Ya know that guy's sitting in a jail cell somewhere knockin' himself for this one. Talk about poetic justice, eh?

Queen Elizabeth Check Me Out On Instagram ... I Don't Do Hashtags

3/7/2019 7:34 AM PST

Queen Elizabeth's first ever post on Instagram is blowing up which is totally impressive ... considering it's just a boring old, OLD letter.

QE2 didn't even remember to add #latergram or #throwbackthursday when she hit the share button. Naturally, there was plenty of royal fanfare for the moment ... they had an actual ceremony for it at London's Science Museum, and she got cheers and applause when a right proper English dude announced, "It's worked perfect."

View this post on Instagram

Today, as I visit the Science Museum I was interested to discover a letter from the Royal Archives, written in 1843 to my great-great-grandfather Prince Albert. Charles Babbage, credited as the world’s first computer pioneer, designed the “Difference Engine”, of which Prince Albert had the opportunity to see a prototype in July 1843. In the letter, Babbage told Queen Victoria and Prince Albert about his invention the “Analytical Engine” upon which the first computer programmes were created by Ada Lovelace, a daughter of Lord Byron. Today, I had the pleasure of learning about children’s computer coding initiatives and it seems fitting to me that I publish this Instagram post, at the Science Museum which has long championed technology, innovation and inspired the next generation of inventors.

Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett My Eye Roll Was a Show of Contempt ... Rep Jordan Needs to Act Like a Congressman

2/27/2019 4:28 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett says her epic eye roll during the Michael Cohen hearing was a sign of contempt for a fellow member who acted more like a WWE wrestler than a member of Congress. 

We got the congresswoman from the Virgin Islands as she left the hearing and railed on Congressman Jim Jordan, who went gunning for House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings.

As Jordan went nuclear ... Plaskett was caught by cameras telling Jordan to pipe down and when that didn't work she doubled down with some serious shade.

Rep. Plaskett has strong feelings about Cohen's testimony. She's also not apologizing for the eye roll.  Plaskett says what you see is what you get. 

DMX Surprise ... I'm Down with Bhad Bhabie!!!

2/25/2019 9:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

DMX is back in action, because he's making a surprise cameo in Danielle Bregoli's new music video ... and it's awesome. 

Bhad Bhabie just dropped the video for her new single, "Bestie", featuring Kodak Black and it features a masked psycho killer clown. Turns out the man behind the mask ... is X. 

Sources close to the music vid's production tell TMZ ... Danielle felt DMX was perfect for the part, and she loves shocking people with her cameo choices. We're told she reached out to DMX, and he was totally down to collab. 

Danielle's only 15, so DMX had already released his biggest albums and starred in tons of movies before she was even born ... but we're told she still considers X one of her favorite artists. 

As you know ... DMX just got released from prison, and he's been looking forward to getting back to work. We gotta say, it's nice to see him back in the music scene. 

If you're wondering why Kodak's absent from the vid ... we're told the rapper just couldn't find time to be on set. 

Miranda Lambert Hot Cop Hubby Already Went Viral ... Dancin' in the Street

2/20/2019 11:00 AM PST

Miranda Lambert's new police officer hubby is no stranger to the fame game -- in fact, his 15 minutes trace way back to 2015 and a little something called the "Cupid Shuffle."

Brendan McLoughlin -- who was already working for NYPD a few years ago -- was cited as the "hot cop" who did the Cupid Shuffle during NYC's Pride weekend that year.

Officer McLoughlin was caught on camera doing his duty ... stepping to the right, to the right, to the left, to the left while shuffling with a bunch of civilians -- including some women who couldn't resist his moves. 

Can't blame those ladies ... the guy's a stud in or out of uniform. In fact, he even moonlighted as a model back in those days. Unclear if he's still doing that though.

As we reported ... Brendan's been temporarily taken off foot patrol and placed on driver duty due to the media attention he's drawing following his surprise marriage to Miranda.

No more flash dances in the street from this dude, at least not in uniform. We're guessing Miranda gets private shows.

Panda Panic Girl Saved by Guard After Falling in Enclosure

2/12/2019 3:06 PM PST

Don't worry ... this didn't end like the Harambe situation, but it did get extremely tense.

An 8-year-old girl in China was rescued by a courageous security guard who hung upside down in the giant panda living space ... pulling her to safety. And, all the drama was caught on video.

The girl reportedly fell backward off a fence last weekend, dropping more than 6 feet into the enclosure at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.

Check it out -- the panda bears approach the girl as the guard attempts to pull her up with a bamboo pole to no avail ... and the crowd begins to really panic. He eventually ditched the pole and stretched upside down to reach the girl with his bare hands ... and pulled her up to safety.

Three pandas -- which aren't always super cuddly and friendly -- were creeping closer at the time, but never got to the girl. They seemed more curious than vicious. 

According to reports, no humans or animals were hurt. The security guard did lose his hat, though.

As we reported ... Brandon's wife told us his heart stopped while he was sleeping in their Northern California home ... and now we know why.

The internet comedian, known as Young Busco, made a huge splash in 2015 after mocking a police officer's shoes as a joke. You'll recall, while his friend was being arrested, Brandon joked about the cop's clunky boots, saying, "What are those?"

The meme caught fire online ... and the catchphrase even appeared in "Black Panther." Michael Jordan was also jokingly asked, "What are those?" during a Q&A session at a basketball camp.

Brandon, who was a father of 9, was 31.

State of the Union Address A Real Snoozefest ... For Joshua Trump

2/6/2019 7:04 AM PST

One of the 13 people to receive a special invite to the 2019 State of the Union Address by Donald and Melania Trump took advantage of it in the best way ... by catching up on ZZZs.

Joshua Trump -- the 11-year-old boy who was reportedly bullied by his classmates for his last name -- seemed to fall asleep during the President's speech while he was reiterating his desire for a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border and called illegal immigration "an urgent national crisis."

It's unclear how long Joshua dozed off, but the shots of him snoozing were enough to make Trump opponents hail the kid as a hero.

The Delaware sixth-grader was invited to the SOTU by the First Lady after his mom told reporters his classmates cursed at him and called him an “idiot” and “stupid” for sharing the President’s last name. The bullying prompted his family to pull him from school and begin homeschooling.

As you know, Melania's been an advocate for anti-bullying as part of her "Be Best" campaign.

Joshua was seated next to child cancer survivor Grace Eline at the address. 

Famous Dex Tells Fan Who Tried Stealing Twin-Engine Jet ... I'm Flying You to L.A.

2/4/2019 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Famous Dex says the fan who tried stealing a 44-seat airplane to fly himself to see the rapper in concert attempted, hands down, the craziest thing ANYONE has ever done to see him live ... so, he's hooking him up.

A little backstory ... Zemarcuis Scott, a teenager from Texarkana, AR, was busted last Fourth of July after cops say he broke into an American Eagle twin-engine jet at Texarkana Regional Airport with the intention to fly himself to see Dex perform in Illinois.

Cops found Scott sitting in the pilot's seat and said he wasn't worried about having zero flying experience ... because it looked simple. Earlier this week ... Scott pled guilty to attempting to steal a commercial jet and avoided jail time with 5 years of felony probation.

Enter, Famous Dex ... who thought the story was a hoax when he first heard about it, but now wants the fan to go through fewer hassles ... by flying him to one of his concerts, and then some.

New Orleans Saints Fans Embrace #BoycottBowl ... In Protest of SB LIII

2/3/2019 2:39 PM PST

Saints fans are still pissed about getting screwed in the NFC Championship game -- and they're protesting Super Bowl LIII the only way NOLA knows how ... partying it up big time. 

The Who Dat faithful took to the streets Sunday by the thousands for a Mardi Gras-style event they dubbed #BoycottBowl. It's basically a festival aimed at calling out the outrageous late-game pass interference no-call against the Rams, which didn't help them win.

This ain't no small thing either -- hordes of fans were out in Saints jerseys and literally parading around town with marching bands and dance troupes ... playing live music and celebrating. There's an entire schedule out for #BoycottBowl too, which includes events like the "Anti-Goodell Protest Bowl" and "Salty Super Bowl Bingo." 

The upside ... everyone seems to be protesting peacefully and trying to make the most out of a crappy situation (for them, anyway). And hey, this has gotta be a boom for local businesses and vendors, who are definitely out in force to snap up customers. Win-win!!! Eh, kinda.

In case you missed it, Nickell Robey-Coleman hit Tommylee Lewis out of bounds before he could catch a pass from Drew Brees late in the game, but it was called incomplete instead of a pass interference ... which the NFL later admitted was a major mistake.

Looks like these Saints fans will never get over that. God bless 'em.
