Casey Anthony

Finally Talking ...

For a Price

5/30/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Casey Anthony is ready to sing like a canary -- a well paid one -- because TMZ got video of the acquitted alleged child killer touching down in NYC, and she's about to do a big interview.

Casey flew into NYC late Thursday. Our photog had a strong feeling it was Casey, even though she denied it. But we figured out she's the real deal.

The white-haired gent by her side is a PR guy who was negotiating an interview with the networks right after her 2011 acquittal. As we reported, Casey wanted cash and some networks were wheeling and dealing, but all got cold feet in the end.

But now they're back and she's about to appear on TV for her first sit-down.

Kanye West

Gives Graduating Fashion Students a Realty Check

5/30/2015 6:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Kanye West was the inspiration Friday night for the graduating class at a prestigious fashion school.

Kanye was front and center for the runway show held by graduating fashion students at L.A. Trade Tech College,  we're told he went back stage prior to the event to give the students encouragement, sat in the front row during the show, and then spoke in classic Kanye style.

The most memorable line ... "When you're the best you get hated on the most."

The school is the same place Kanye did his community service for his assault case involving the LAX attack on a photog.  But we've learned Kanye already completed his community service, so he didn't have to show for the event.  He just wanted to.

You Be the Judge

Chris Brown

Baby Mama Nixed

Fab Disney World Birthday for Royalty

5/30/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0529-chris-brown-royalty-birthday-disney-world-GETTY-01

Chris Brown offered to fly his daughter Royalty and the kid's mom to the happiest place for her first birthday, but his baby mama shut down the offer.

Brown's rep tells TMZ,  it's true he was a no show for Royalty's 1st birthday, but it's because he was shooting a music video in Miami. The rep says, "Like any working parent, Chris is doing his best to prioritize the needs of his daughter." 

But Chris had a plan ... flying "the entire family" to Disney World. It's unclear if that included King Ba, Nia Guzman's BF who has been trying to assume the role of Dad. But Chris insists Nia turned him down flat.

Nia's pissed that Chris didn't show for the shindig at Chuck E. Cheese's in Houston, but Chris says he'll throw a special party for Royalty the next time he sees her.

Celebrities ... they're just like us.

Dustin Diamond

Convicted in Stabbing Case

5/30/2015 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0530-dustin-diamond-getty-02Dustin Diamond was convicted Friday in the case where he stabbed a guy in a bar, but in a way it's really a victory for him.

Diamond was convicted of 2 misdemeanors but acquitted of the far more serious felonies.

1226-dustin-diamond-at-bar-fight-christmas-TMZ-02As TMZ reported, Diamond, who was with his girlfriend, stabbed a man in the Wisconsin bar last XMAS, but he claimed self defense. Diamond testified, "I felt like we were being set up for antagonistic purposes."   The actor who famously played Screech claimed he was merely waiving a pocket knife around to fend off aggressors, never intending to stab anyone.

The guy he stabbed didn't even know he was cut until after he left the bar.

Diamond was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct.  Worst case scenario is a 9 month jail sentence. 

'Empire Stars'

Slay at The Grove

5/30/2015 7:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It was like one stop shopping Friday night at The Grove ... you could get a soft pretzel, check out the creepy dolls at American Girl,  and watch a concert courtesy of the fine folks at "Empire."

Jussie Smollett, aka Jamal, Bryshere Gray, aka Hakeem, and others performed for the cheering crowd.  

Before the concert, the audience got to see an episode under stars, and then got to ask questions.

The concert was pretty awesome ... sorry for the shaky camera, but it was pretty crazy.

'Bachelor' Chris Soules

Theme Park Appearance

Turned Into Cattle Call

5/30/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0528-chris-soules-ultimate

'Bachelor' star Chris Soules is suddenly single, and a lot more marketable ... at least to one venue, which is fully taking advantage of his breakup with Whitney Bischoff.

As all of Bachnation knows ... Chris and Whitney ended their engagement Thursday -- and the folks at iPlay America (an indoor theme park in NJ) immediately reacted by relabeling him the "The Ultimate Bachelor" on all its promos.

Soules is the main attraction June 13 at iPlay, and previously the park was simply billing him as a 'Bachelor' star and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant.

Happy hunting ladies -- 'cause we all know Iowa farmers all dream about finding soulmates at indoor theme parks ... in New Jersey.

Justin Bieber

I Don't Do Weddings

... For Any Price

56 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber is either true to his art or flush with cash, because he will not turn into a wedding singer under any circumstances.

Justin was leaving Mastro's in Bev Hills Friday night, when our photog asked about possible wedding gigs.  Justin was clear ... no way, no how.

Fact is ... the way the record biz is going, it's a good way to make a fast buck.  Jennifer Lopez performed a wedding a few years back for an oil tycoon and pocketed a cool mil.   Nick Jonas got $100K for singing 3 songs at a Bat Mitzvah.

Justin will, on the other hand, sing for free when a dude proposes to his girl at a mall.

Farrah Abraham

I Want an Ass Handler

For My Birthday

5/30/2015 7:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0530-chum-lee-farrah-abraham-tmz-02Farrah Abraham's ass was up for grabs -- again.

The "Backdoor Teen Mom" star got a handful from Chumlee  Friday at the Palms pool in Vegas.

Farrah was there to celebrate her 24th birthday.  Her birthday wish was inspiring ... she wanted a hot guy to rub suntan lotion on her body, and the Pawnstars" star delivered.

Chumlee's making a side career in Vegas.  He's coming back to the Palms pool July10 to DJ.  Farrah, who is familiar with the signature DJ move, will no doubt show.

Bruce Jenner

I'm Now Ready for My Close Up

5/29/2015 5:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0529-bruce-jenner-annie-leibowitz-GETTY-04Bruce Jenner will grace the cover of "Vanity Fair" as a woman ... his first such photo shoot at the hands of a world-famous celebrity photographer.

TMZ has confirmed ... Annie Leibovitz will photograph Bruce for one of the magazine's covers this summer.

Bruce has not revealed his new look publicly, so the shoot will get tons of attention.

And Jenner chose right, for sure. Leibovitz has taken some of the most iconic celeb photos in the world ... John and Yoko, a pregnant Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg in a milk bath and Meryl Steep in white face.

It looks like the cover will roll out just about the same time as Bruce's docuseries, chronicling his transition from man to woman.

Joe Budden

Blows Off Court

... Wanted by Cops

5/30/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0528-joe-budden-tmz-01Rapper Joe Budden is so on top of his social media game ... he flat out forgot to show up to face charges that he allegedly attacked his gf -- which is why there's now a warrant for his arrest.

No joke ... Budden went A.W.O.L. for Thursday's hearing in NYC. Far as we can see ... he posted a few Instagram pics and tweeted some random crap that day, but just couldn't make it to court.

Budden is accused of allegedly beating and choking his girlfriend last summer. The judge in the case immediately issued the bench warrant when he skipped the hearing.

We reached out to Budden's lawyer, but much like the court ... we've gotten no response.

Hollywood Hilbillies

Don't Know Much About Menorah-ties

44 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

Those Hollywood Hillbillies have been in Hollywood long enough ... you'd think they'd know more about Jews.

They went shopping for a birthday present for their Jewish manager, David Weintraub, and their level of knowledge is both shocking and predictable. 

Anyway ... they lingered in the chachka store on Fairfax .... they were in no Rosh.
