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

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.

T-Pain Don’t Try Me, Beach … Ball to Face Ends Show!!!

T-Pain ain’t down for shots to the face — even if it’s just a beach ball — and his fans definitely know that now after he abruptly pulled the plug on a weekend concert.

We got this video from his Sunday set at the BBYO (B’Nai B’Rith Youth Org.) Convention in Denver, and you see him rapping “Bartender” as the beach ball comes flying through the air, bouncing off the side of his dome! 

It definitely looked funny, but T-Pain wasn’t in a playful mood. He immediately beelined for the exit. Fans at the concert tell us T-Pain was only about 30 minutes into his set when he bounced. 

Tension was building because witnesses tell us T-Pain had already warned the crowd he was leaving if they threw another ball onstage. We’re told T-Pain’s people tried to get him to go back on … but he refused. 

Keep your balls to yourself at a T-Pain show. The more you know! 

Jermaine Dupri Denies Doing SB Halftime Show … ‘No Means No’

EXCLUSIVE

Jermaine Dupri says super producer Jazze Pha is WRONG — he never signed on to participate in the Super Bowl halftime show … but it has nothing to do with Colin Kaepernick

Pha is a producing legend in ATL and he’s super plugged in — so, when he told us Dupri was involved in the show, it sounded legit. 

But, Dupri says Pha’s just wrong — and when we started questioning Jermaine he told us point blank, “You think I’m saying no because it’s a secret? No means no.”

Dupri says he’s not boycotting the NFL over Kaepernick — he says the NFL simply never called when they were putting the show together and he REFUSES to be considered an afterthought. 

“It should have been a decision that they made at the beginning. I’m not something that you call later on in life.”

So, Dupri is out — but Maroon 5, Travis Scott, Big Boi from Outkast and Gladys Knight are all in to perform on Feb. 3. 

As we previously reported, some huge stars like Common have called for the performers to back out over the way the league has treated Kaepernick, but that’s just not happening at this point. 

R. Kelly Inside Alleged ‘Sex Cult’ Studio … Photos Show Bizarre Scene

Photos from inside R. Kelly‘s alleged “sex cult” recording studio in Chicago have just been released … showing proof of code violations and plenty of evidence someone may have been living there.

The photos were taken by Chicago officials when they raided the building on suspicion the unit may be used as a permanent residence. Check out the gallery … it’s a completely bizarre scene inside the studio that was heavily featured in “Surviving R. Kelly.” 

During one point in the documentary, the family of one of Kelly’s alleged victims showed up at the property to try and rescue their daughter. 

As we reported … the studio was hit with a laundry list of building code violations, and Kelly is being barred from using the space for anything other than a recording studio from 9 AM to 5 PM.

Dog the Bounty Hunter Chemotherapy Won’t Stop Beth From Filming New Show

EXCLUSIVE

Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife, Beth Chapman, aren’t letting her cancer diagnosis keep them from making a living, or from being in front of the camera … TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell us Dog and Beth are committed to a recently inked deal with the TV network WGN America for a new reality series called “Dog’s Most Wanted” — where they’ll track down some of the country’s most dangerous fugitives. 

And, by committed … we mean they’re moving forward with filming, even as Beth continues to receive chemotherapy for her throat cancer. In fact, we’re told Beth will be front and center for the show … and that her chemo will likely be a storyline.

Our sources say, if they do choose to focus on Beth’s cancer, it will capture her diagnosis and chronicle her journey. Production starts within a month.

TMZ broke the stories … Beth started undergoing chemo in early January after doctors discovered her cancer had returned during emergency throat surgery in November.

She, Dog and the rest of their family have been laying low in Colorado when she’s not in L.A. for treatment.

Miley Cyrus Crushes It at Chris Cornell Tribute Show … With ‘Say Hello 2 Heaven’

On a night filled with musical acts that brought chills, Miley Cyrus stole the show at Chris Cornell‘s tribute concert … with a rousing rendition of his famous Temple of the Dog song.

The ‘I Am the Highway’ tribute concert, organized by Cornell’s wife Vicky, went down at The Forum in L.A. Wednesday night, and featured an incredible lineup with 42 songs over 5 hours.

Check it out, though … Miley REALLY brought it on the vocals for “Say Hello 2 Heaven.”

Another standout from the evening was Chris’s teenage daughter, Toni, taking the stage with Ziggy Marley to cover his dad Bob‘s “Redemption Song” … after an intro by Brad Pitt. As far as her voice goes, it’s clear the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

Along with all the other famous bands and musicians who took the stage — like the Foo Fighters, Josh Homme, Ryan Adams, Chris Stapleton and Metallica — the show was highlighted by performances by Chris’s old bands … Temple of the Dog, Audioslave and for the first time since his death, Soundgarden.

The tribute show brought in a slew of celebs, as well … like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Courteney Cox, Adam Sandler and many more.

We broke the story … Cornell was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 after a show in Detroit. 

Super Bowl Halftime Show Lil Jon, Jermaine Dupri Involved … Says Jazze Pha

EXCLUSIVE

Two more huge names are helping out with the Super Bowl 53 halftime show — Lil Jon and Jermaine Dupri — this according to mega-producer Jazze Pha

Pha is a producing legend who’s from ATL and is one of the most plugged-in people in town — and when we saw him at LAX, he told us he had just come back from halftime show rehearsals. 

The big bombshell here … Pha strongly suggests Lil Jon and J.D. are now a part of the show — but he wasn’t specific about what their roles will be. 

“I think Lil Jon and Jermaine Dupri and everybody gonna make it hot,” Pha says … “They gonna make it live. Maybe I let the cat outta the bag, I don’t know!”

The issue … there are huge stars calling for African-Americans to boycott the show — including Common, who says the NFL doesn’t support black people

In fact, Common said he wishes Travis Scott would pull out from the show over the way the league has treated Colin Kaepernick.

Now, with two gigantic hip-hop legends seemingly signing on — ya gotta wonder what the reaction will be. 

Either way, Jazze says he was super impressed with what he saw at rehearsals and expects the show to blow people’s minds! 

We’ll see!
