Justin Bieber says he was “just playing” when he asked Tom Cruise to fight him over social media.

Bieber reached out to UFC boss Dana White on Twitter earlier this week to if she’d be willing to stage a bout between himself and the actor, but he now claims the tweet was just a “random” joke, and wasn’t serious.

When asked if he really intends to fight Cruise, 56, Justin said: “Nah, I was just playing. The story is I saw an interview with him, and it was just on my mind … I don’t know why I thought about it. It was just a random tweet. I do that stuff sometimes.”

And the 25-year-old singer says even if Tom did agree to the grapple, he’d probably lose because Tom is “big” and has added strength thanks to being a father.

Speaking to TMZ, he added: “But I’m pretty sure Tom would … I’m pretty sure he’d whoop my a** in a fight. I’d have to get in good shape, I’m really skinny right now. I think he’d probably be out of my weight class. Because he’s big, you know he’s got that dad strength.”

Dana didn’t reply to Bieber’s message, but UFC champion Conor McGregor was quick to offer to host the fight instead.

He tweeted: “If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout. Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies? Stay tuned to find out!”

A day after his proposal, Justin shared a fan’s augmented clip of a fight scene from Cruise’s movie Far and Away. The fan’s edit depicted a tussle between Cruise’s Joseph and an opposing character, with Justin’s face superimposed onto the face of the actor’s opponent.

The edited clip showed how a fight between the two A-Listers would have likely gone down, resulting in Bieber being knocked out by Cruise. “Damn Tom, this didn’t go as planned,” Justin tweeted.

Selena Gomez might have millions of Instagram followers, but she keeps the app off of her own phone.

Selena Gomez makes an appearance on Live! with Kelly and Ryan yesterday and opened up about her love-hate relationship with social media. “I used to a lot,” she shared about interacting with her fans more on Instagram and Twitter, “but I think it’s just become really unhealthy.” She continued:

[“I think, personally, for young people, including myself, to spend all of their time fixating on all these comments and letting this stuff in. It was affecting me. It would make me depressed. It would make me feel not good about myself and look at my body differently and all kinds of stuff.”]

Now, Selena doesn’t even have Instagram on her phone: “I have it on someone else’s phone, and when I feel like I want to share something with my fans or just mess around with it, I do it then.

Selena’s comments come after she said it was “impossible” to make social media a safe place while speaking at a press conference at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

She said at the time: “I think it’s pretty impossible to make it safe at this point. I’m grateful I have the platform. I don’t do a lot of pointless pictures. For me, I like to be intentional with it. It just scares me. I’ll see these young girls at meet and greets. They are devastated, dealing with bullying and not being able to have their own voice. It can be great in moments. I would be careful and allow yourself some time limits of when you should use it.” She previously took a hiatus from her social media platforms last year, after she entered a treatment facility to focus on her anxiety and depression.

While on Live!, Selena also said would “definitely” date Bill Murray if the movie veteran was 20 years younger. The two really hit it off while they were filming the new zombie movie The Dead Don’t Die, and Selena admits he would be her ideal man – if it wasn’t for their 42-year age difference. She gushed:

[“He’s so cool. I just feel like he’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. He’s so genuine and so kind. I had a blast. “If he were 20 years younger, I would definitely (date him)!”]

Selena previously joked about marrying Bill in a post on Instagram after attending the project’s premiere with her co-stars and director Jim Jarmusch at the Cannes Film Festival in France last month.

“I’m so honored to have been a part of this movie with Jim and the whole cast,” she captioned a photo of the group. “By the way Bill Murray and I are getting married.”

Her remark came shortly after a photo of Bill whispering in Selena’s ear on the red carpet went viral, while they were also spotted holding hands, leading some gossips to link the pair as a couple.

But Selena says the sweet nothings fans think he is whispering to her are simply odd comments:

[“He just says the dumbest things. He’ll just ask me about hot dogs and say something else like, ‘You look nice, Gomez,’ and then he’ll just kinda like, lean in again and be like, ‘Where are you from again?’“]

Meghan Trainor has shared the heartbreaking news of the passing of one of her most dedicated fans, a young woman named Jalisa.

The singer paid a touching tribute to Jalisa, who she hailed as “one of her best friends” as she thanked her for following her around the world and pledged to “never forget” her devoted supporter.

She shared an Instagram collage of several photos of herself and Jalisa over the years and wrote: “I am so devastated by the news of my sweet Jalisa’s passing. Since the very beginning of my career I always had a beautiful familiar face at every single show, all over the world, supporting me and making me smile.”

Meghan went on to say that Jalisa was more than a fan and that she helped build a community of friends everywhere she went – a community called Whalebox, because growing up, Trainor had a whale mailbox.

While it is unclear how Jalisa died, the 25-year-old singer ended her touching tribute by urging her fans to look out for one another and shared the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number: 1-800-273-8255, for people who are struggling.

“We are stronger together. We need to support and look out for each other. Please know that whatever you’re feeling, you are not alone and there are people that can help,”
