On June 9, Justin Bieber appeared to have up to a weekend hijinks. He took into his Twitter accounts and chose to share his urge to confront with Tom Cruise at a physical struggle, stating that he would like to challenge the celebrity into a”battle in the octagon.”
Only a day after, Bieber lasted the battle, sharing a movie clip a lover had established superimposing Bieber’s head within a competition that Cruise confronted against in a film, Far and Away.
But it appears that Bieber has since backtracked from his past struggle, as Us Weekly reports. TMZ approached Bieber to find an in-person opinion concerning the struggle once Bieber was on his way from his spouse Hailey Baldwin’s workplace, along with the pop superstar immediately changed his tune. In that short interaction, he disclosed that”the narrative is, I had seen a meeting with him and he was on my head”
“I don’t know why… it was just a random tweet. I do that stuff sometimes.”
Cruise and his team didn’t end up commenting on the challenge before Bieber clarified that the challenge was just a joke. However, one person did — former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor. The “Notorious” fighter took to Twitter, offering to help host the battle if it were to ever occur.
“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!”
While Bieber doesn’t seem eager to get in the octagon with anyone, there’s a chance Cruise will eventually comment on the situation and offer up his own challenge.
Back on March 10, Bieber got a little vulnerable on Instagram with his fans, sharing a photo with a caption that revealed he was having a bit of a tough time. He commented that he’s “been struggling a lot” and had been “feeling super disconnected and weird.” He then added that he “just wanted to reach out and ask for your guys to pray for me.”
While many individuals impulsively share their thoughts on Twitter, it can be dangerous to do so when you’re a celebrity. After all, though Cruise hasn’t responded to the challenge Bieber set out on a random Sunday, he could very easily have responded and accepted within minutes. Then, Bieber would have found it a lot tougher to backtrack on his unexpected challenge.
