NBC FIRES TRUMP - TRUMP FIRES BACK: NBC has fired DONALD TRUMP over the anti-Mexico stuff he said in his campaign kickoff speech. They network has decided to drop Trump's Miss USA pageant and will be replacing him on "Celebrity Apprentice".

Trump didn't back down though. He posted a statement on Instagram that read in part: "Mr. Trump stands by his statements on illegal immigration, which are accurate. NBC is weak and, like everybody else, is trying to be politically correct. That's why our country is in serious trouble."

He added that didn't plan to continue on with "The Apprentice" and that he told NBC long ago that he wasn't coming back because he was going to run for president. Then he threatened them with a lawsuit over the Miss USA pageant.

But here's the best part: "[NBC] will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won't stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be."

Meanwhile, Trump's departure won't mean the end of "The Apprentice." The network is searching for a new host, and TMZ says they want that person to be a minority -- possibly a Mexican or a Mexican American.

IS THERE BEEF BETWEEN IGGY AZALEA AND BRITNEY SPEARS?!: IGGY AZALEA was chatting with fans on Twitter yesterday and admitted that her song with BRITNEY SPEARS, "Pretty Girls", didn't perform as well as she'd hoped, and many on the World Wide Web of Celebrity Speculation thought she was blaming Britney

"It's difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and TV performances," she wrote. "Unfortunately I'm just 'featured'. I would've enjoyed performing it a lot. I think it got off to a powerful start, but you need content to compete in 2015."

When her followers asked if she was blaming Britney, Iggy replied, "My comment is factual, it applies to any song. I don't have to s*ck the woman's a**hole 24/7 to be her friend, do I?"

After her comments started being reported as an attack on Brit, Iggy ripped into the media, Tweeting, "please stop. its honestly so desperate at this point its cringe worthy. guys, really? is THAT what i said."

Maybe, maybe not, but Britney may have taken it that way. She Tweeted what SEEMS like a veiled shot at Azalea, perhaps referencing Iggy's recently cancelled tour ...

GAGA PROUD BUT CONFUSED: LADY GAGA celebrated the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling by posting a picture of herself on a balcony in Chicago, overlooking a gay pride parade. Or rather, what she thought was a gay pride parade. The gathering below was actually a Mexican music festival.

Gaga, by the way, claims she did NOT make a mistake, Tweeting she is "proud in general."
