Stars really are just like us! Justin Bieber wants to pick a fight, so he went to Twitter. But in “actually, maybe stars aren’t really that much like us” news, he didn’t pick a fight by tweeting an “unpopular opinion” or hot take. He full-on announced his wish to physically fight with world-renowned action star Tom Cruise. And not in just any tussle! Bieber wants to battle Cruise in an Ultimate Fighting Champion setup. So naturally, Bieber looped in UFC president Dana White in hopes of making this dream a reality.
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 ?— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) June 10, 2019
Looking at this tweet, we have a lot of questions. Why does a 25-year-old pop star want to fight a 56-year-old movie star? Does he think it’d make him look cool to beat up a man more than twice his age? Does he imagine it’d be the same as squaring off against Ethan Hunt? Does he think he’d have a chance? Did he predict the amount of dragging that’d come from this seemingly cavalier challenge?
Because Twitter has thoughts:

Here I am thinking it’s going to be another regular Monday, and the first thing I read is that Justin Bieber wants to fight Tom Cruise. There’s a lot to unpack here. But….book it?— Christian Navarro (@ChristianLN0821) June 10, 2019
Even Edgar Wright and Mission: Impossible screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie weighed in.
