Justin Bieber is saying that he was just kidding when he challenged Tom Cruise to a UFC fight and that he knows he would probably get his ass kicked if it were to happen. Huh, well I’m glad that’s cleared up. I don’t want to live in a world where two of the most completely sane celebrities aren’t getting along. What would Xenu think?! Justin made it clear that it was all a goof and he can go back to having real fights with David Arquette, Marilyn Manson and french kissing his wife all over Instagram.
According to TMZ:
Justin Bieber wasn’t serious about taking on Tom Cruise in a fight, or maybe he’s simply changed his mind … because he says Tom would kick his ass!
JB played it cool for the paps in L.A. Wednesday as he was leaving Hailey’s fashion line office, telling them he was just goofing around when he randomly challenged the 56-year-old actor to an MMA fight and asked Dana White to make it happen.
He says he had just seen an interview with Cruise so he was on his mind, and decided to tweet out the bizarre challenge… but it was all just a goof.
I’m glad he cleared this up because I was confused for a bunch of reasons. I couldn’t understand why 25-year-old Justin was challenging 56-year-old Tom Cruise to a fight. Also I know nothing about UFC so I only know an “octagon” as a shape, and wasn’t sure how they were going to fight on some geometry. Then I somehow read Dana White as Vanna White, which made me very concerned about who would change the letters on Wheel Of Fortune that day.
I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?

I will say the best to come out of this mess is the 31 year meme challenge. Where you basically find a celebrity who is 31 years older then you and challenge them to a fight on Twitter.
Justin Bieber is 25, Tom Cruise is 56.
Challenge an actor 31 years older than you to a fight. I’ll go first…

Following this new Bieber logic I have to fight someone 31 years older than me. So Stevie Nicks, anytime you wanna go…I’m prepared to get my ass kicked.

I would be fighting (and losing) to Sigourney Weaver which is totally unfair because she trained with gorillas and aliens for christ sake. I need a 51 year challenge if I have any type of shot at winning at fight.
I’m also really proud Bieber admitted he was joking and didn’t blame this on Ambien tweeting like a racist Roseanne. Good for Bieber! Can’t wait to see who he fights with next! I’m just saying that Kirk Douglas better lay low for now.
