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.
Fleetwood Mac’s Neil Finn, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie share new song to benefit Auckland’s homeless

The song was written by Finn about the city’s homeless population after he was inspired by a personal encounter he had at the Mission.
“I live in a pretty fortunate situation and I move in circles that are not in daily contact with homeless people,” he told The New Zealand Herald. “So it’s good to be able to find a pathway in your head to relate to some degree.”
Finn continued: “I haven’t felt compelled to go down that path in terms of speaking out. But in terms of trying to do some kindly acts as you strike situations, I think that’s compulsive and we should all be trying to do that.”
“Fleetwood Mac is a strange creature,” he said. “We’re very, very committed to Neil and Mike [Campbell of Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers], and that passed away a time ago, when Lindsey left. And it’s not a point of conversation, so I have to say no.”
He added: “It’s a full drama of Fleetwood Mac, no doubt. His legacy is alive and well, and as it should be. A major, major part that will never be taken away, and never be down-spoken by any of us. Neil and Mike have tremendous respect for Lindsey.”

Music industry plans blackout in solidarity with Black community following George Floyd death
A host of record labels and other music industry figures are planning a social media blackout on Tuesday (June 2) in solidarity with the black community.
Messages shared by Warner, Universal, Dirty Hit and more set out a plan to “disconnect from work and reconnect with out community” for the day, held as “an urgent step of action to provoke accountability and change.”
The decision comes in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota earlier this week. Floyd was a 46-year-old black man who died on May 25 after being apprehended by a white police officer. Officer Derek Chauvin has since been sacked and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
“Due to recent events please join us as we take an urgent step of action to provoke accountability and change,” the message begins.
“As gatekeepers of the culture, it’s our responsibility to not only come together to celebrate the wins, but also hold each other up during a loss.
“Join us on Tuesday June 2 as a day to disconnect from work and reconnect with our community,” the message concludes, adding the hashtag “#THESHOWMUSTBEPAUSED.”
Universal Music Group quoted Martin Luther King in their Instagram post supporting the blackout, echoing his sentiments that “there comes a time when silence is betrayal”.
The Caroline label wrote: “Our Black friends are not ok, our Black families are not ok, we are not and should not be ok.”
A number of figures in the music industry have spoken about following Floyd’s death. Taylor Swift this week called out President Donald Trump’s inflammatory tweets about the situation, saying: “After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence,” and threatening to “vote [Trump] out in November”.
Billie Eilish also shared her thoughts on the matter, writing: “If I hear one more white person say ‘all lives matter’ one more fucking time I’m gonna lose my fucking mind,” while Run The Jewels rapper Killer Mike sent an emotional message to the residents of his hometown of Atlanta, a city that has sparked into violence since Floyd’s death.

‘None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive’ comes out on July 10, and is The Streets’ first full-length project since 2011 album ‘Computers And Blues’ and mixtape ‘Cyberspace And Reds’.
Mike Skinner revived his Streets project in 2018, playing a number of Greatest Hits tour dates and sharing a host of new material.
Skinner announced his intentions to release a new Streets mixtape last year, which will arrive alongside a new studio album. The album is set to be paired with a new film that Skinner is currently working on.
Speaking to NME about the upcoming mixtape and the new film, Skinner said: “It’s almost like a follow-on from [2004 album] ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’ – that was my life without The Streets.
“That’s what this is; it’s about my life as a DJ but with The Streets removed. I haven’t shot anything yet, but we’ve decided to use real nightclubs. So we’re waiting for real nightclubs to happen again; if it’s not until 2021 then that’s when we’ll do it.
“The film’s just a caper, really; it’s a bit of fairytale, but a fairytale told in the real world.”
