EXCLUSIVE Mariah Carey wants a divorce and wants it badly, but Nick Cannon will not cooperate ... TMZ has learned. Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ...

Macklemore Explains Why He Has a Nude Justin Bieber Painting in His Studio

Macklemore of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performs on stage at Manchester Arena on April 12, 2016 in Manchester, England. In March, it was the Internet's delight to discover that Macklemore owns a naked oil paining of Justin Bieber with a syrup-drenched pancake draped over his erect -- ahem -- silverware. The piece hangs in the rapper's studio apparently, but we never knew why until now. Watch Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Perform 'Dance Off,' 'Downtown' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' Macklemore told TMZ, joking at first, "It's an investment piece. I think that that painting is going to be worth a lot of money. I search eBay and Etsy for fine pieces of art.

Update on Prince — Died of Opioid Drug Overdose #Prince

Breaking News Prince died from an opioid drug overdose ... according to multiple reports on the medical examiner's testing. The ME's Office has been conducting toxicology testing on the singer, and TMZ has confirmed the results point to an "opioid overdose." We broke the story ... 6 days before his death, Prince had nearly died from a Percocet overdose that forced an emergency landing in Moline, IL ... where he had to get a "save" shot. Percocet is an opioid -- a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen (Tylenol) -- but the AP report doesn't specify what opioid was in Prince's system. As we've reported, Dr. Michael Schulenberg was at Paisley Park the morning Prince died there -- and Dr. Howard Kornfeld's son was also there with opioids used to treat addiction. Schulenberg's attorney has said he did not give Prince any meds that morning.

Zulu Nation Apologizes to Afrika Bambaataa’s Alleged Victims

In early April, former music producer and politician Ronald Savage claimed hip hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa sexually abused him as a teen during an interview with the New York Daily News. One week later, three other men also accused Bambaattaa of sexual abuse. Bambaataa denied the allegations and said he "never abused anybody" during an interview with Fox 5 in May. Zulu Nation, the hip hop awareness organization Bambaataa founded in the late 1970s, initially denied the sexual abuse claims in a statement released to the Daily News. They called Savage "mentally challenged" and said "the N.Y.
