The first stop on Justin Bieber's apology tour? Ronda Rousey!
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Before kicking off his Purpose World Tour next March, Justin Bieber is working on some damage control.
This week, Justin publicly reached out to MMA fighter Ronda Rousey and apologized for an incident that occurred, unbeknownst to Justin, last year. “I guess, supposedly, she asked for a picture with her sister or something and I guess I said no?” he said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “But I don’t remember this happening, so, Ronda, I’m sorry. Don’t kick my a**!”
His apology comes after Ronda publicly stated her disappointment with the pop star, claiming that he refused to take a photo with her and her 16 year-old sister at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014. As Ronda tells it, the direct quote from Bieber was “I’ve already taken a billion pictures today, OK?” Rousey told Cosmopolitan in October, “I’m not a Belieber. I was, but I’m not anymore”. Zoinks. Hopefully this apology will be enough to bring her back to Belieber status.
In other related news, it was reported today that Justin Bieber will be charging fans $2000 for selfies during meet-and-greets. Hmm. Perhaps this is a way to avoid any repeats of the Rousey situation? Those prices are pretty steep, Justin!
While Justin’s been doling out apologies, he’s also been receiving them. Recently, Seth Rogen and Bieber set aside their beef (Rogen had said some not-so-nice things about Bieber) and hugged it out on The Ellen Show. Also, they posted a totally adorable Instagram of the two running towards one another and embracing set to Bieber’s “Sorry.” PERFECTION.
Justin Bieber’s full interview premieres tonight on ET.
