The brouhaha between Justin Bieber and Ronda Rousey might finally have ended. Bieber told Ronda he was sorry, reports Page Six, for the snub that the UFC star said Justin enacted upon Rousey’s 17-year-old sister. Bieber was rude to Ronda’s sister, the MMA fighter said, when Justin was asked for an autograph. It was an event that Bieber said he didn’t remember, but during an interview set to air on Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, Justin apologized to Rousey anyway and added comments about Ronda getting knocked out recently. As of Wednesday morning, the interview video with Bieber talking about Rousey and saying he’s sorry had not yet been uploaded to the Entertainment Tonight video page.
“I guess, supposedly, she asked for a picture with her sister or something, and I guess I said no? But I don’t remember this happening so, Ronda, I’m sorry. Don’t kick my a***! I would like to get better at boxing… Did you see Ronda Rousey? She got knocked out cold! Oh my God, she got knocked out so bad. Yeah no, she got pummeled.”
The fact that Bieber has said sorry to Rousey goes right in line with Justin’s new song “Sorry,” with lyrics, as reported by Genius, that ask if it’s too late for Bieber to say he’s sorry to some unknown love. (Perhaps someone who’s sick of that “Same Old Love“?) Bieber made his apologies to Rousey while promoting his new Purpose album.
It’s been a reformed Bieber who has shown up and cried after performing “Where R U Now?” and “What Do You Mean?” at the MTV 2015 VMAs, as reported by the Independent. Bieber twirled up in the air as Bieber spoke about leaning not on your own understanding, but trusting in God and something bigger than yourself, as seen in the below video.
It’s not the first time Bieber has put his faith on display and boldly talked about his beliefs to Justin’s huge legion of fans, dubbed Beliebers.
“I’m not religious. I, personally, love Jesus and that was my salvation.”

As reported by Complex, Justin spoke of what it meant to him to be a Christian and how much more faith it takes for folks to believe that the world was created by happenstance. Justin spoke about not being a holier-than-thou type of believer who tries to shove faith down a person’s throat. Instead, prior to Bieber saying sorry to Rousey, Justin spoke about how much his belief system has helped him overcome difficulties in life and how much success it has given him.
“I can just trust that God got this under control. I’m the type of dude who always wants to figure it out. Science makes a lot of sense. Then I start thinking—wait, the ‘big bang.’ For a ‘big bang’ to create all this is more wild to think about than thinking about there being a God. Imagine putting a bunch of gold into a box, shaking up the box, and out comes a Rolex. It’s so preposterous once people start saying it. At this point, my faith has gotten me to where I am. My faith has brought me to a whole other level. I love talking about my faith. I think that with Christians, they’ve left such a bad taste in people’s mouths. Just like, overly pushy with the subject, overly churchy and religious.”
While giving promotion to Purpose, Bieber spoke of his wishes to settle down someday. Justin told ET of his plans to get married, have kids — plus enjoy his family along with his indoor basketball court and an indoor pool. Bieber spoke of building his home and finding the perfect location to live.
Meanwhile, as Bieber is apologizing to Rousey for the action he says he doesn’t remember, others like Lady Gaga have dissed Rousey after Ronda’s heavyweight title loss, reports Entertainment Tonight.
