It’s not hard to admit that Hollywood celebrities live in their own bubbles but sometimes the delusion is just too much to comprehend amongst the working class Americans.
You can boil it down to eccentricity but there are other times when it’s too hard to comprehend what was actually going through their brainpan when they did the most arrogant thing possible. It’s no secret they think of themselves as being the best in the world – not just in their particular profession – in any other ancillary activity they think they’re good at it as well.
And superstar worldly acclaimed singer Justin Bieber made the biggest mistake of his life by challenging this A-list actor to a fight in the Octagon.
Yes, Justin Bieber might be a good singer and his songs might be annoying to most people but there is certainly a market for his music; otherwise he wouldn’t be as famous as he is.
He used to be that squawky unruly teenager, frequently in trouble and an all-around annoyance on a global scale to most of the population.
The thing that most celebrities discount is nobody really cares how talented somebody is if they’re complete jackasses while they’re doing it.
An ironic recent example of this is actor Keanu Reeves. He’s had an extraordinary year thus far with “John Wick 3” and cameos in “Always be my Maybe” and a cameo in the trailer for the upcoming video game “Cyberpunk 2077.” Oh, he’s also going to play Duke Caboom in “Toy Story 4,” which is set to hit theaters on June 21st.
The thing about Keanu Reeves is that we all know he’s not a great actor. He’s always been serviceable at best with performances in “The Matrix” and “Speed,” but that has nothing to do with how wonderful of a person he is.
He donates money and time to charities all across the globe. Legend has it that he donated almost all of his salary for “Matrix: Reloaded” to the crew (estimated at $75 million). He’s undeniably a heartwarming genuine soul and everybody loves and sees that about him.
Bieber is the complete opposite end of the spectrum.
The “Baby” and “Love Me” singer tweeted, “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 [sic]. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?”
Dana White is the owner and president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship so it makes sense he would tag him, but is he really serious about this?
What you may not know about Tom Cruise is that he’s one of the most gifted stuntmen on the planet. Most of the time, Cruise doesn’t see a single dime of his money until after principal photography wraps because he does his own stunts and he’s worth too much to the production to pay him upfront.
There was a set-day moment during “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” about 5 years ago when there was a stunt required for a car-flipping scenario with actor Simon Pegg in the passenger seat and Tom’s stuntman wasn’t available that day. Needless to say, productions like this are expensive and it was necessary they filmed it immediately. So, Tom did it. And the stunt supervisor said he was the most qualified to do it.
And why do you think that is?
Do you think it’s because he’s a run-of-the-mill actor slouch who relies on his stuntmen to make him look good or do you think he’s really that good at what he does?
Now Justin Bieber wants to put him to the test? Good luck with that.
Cruise is about 30 years older than him, 4 inches shorter, and would probably still annihilate Justin Bieber.
