This Is What A Justin Bieber vs. Nate Diaz Fight Would Look Like

Earlier this month, Nate Diaz, the pride of Stockton, Calif., defeated Conor McGregor at UFC 196. The younger Diaz brother’s victory over UFC’s biggest star was quite the upset. It had fans reeling. Among those was none other than Justin Bieber.

Some dude with a big social media following that used to date Selena Gomez took to Instagram to lament Nate Diaz masterfully choking out fan favorite Conor McGregor. Instead of giving props where props were due, Bieber talked trash about Diaz. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Nate Diaz and his older brother (#FreeNickDiaz), they don’t take too kindly to trash talking.

Amazingly, Nate Diaz brushed the comment off, which is very #offbrand

Last week, Nate spoke with “Extra’s” Charissa Thompson (Wait, really? What is going on here?) about BieberGate. The MMA fighter countered the Bieber trash talk by stating the pop star didn’t know what he was talking about and even hinted at Bieber being a bandwagon fan. Nate Diaz then finished the interview by jokingly saying that he would smack the “Sorry” singer if given the chance.

To be fair, Bieber probably is a bandwagon fan.

That’s Bieber on the right walking alongside Floyd Mayweather, Jr., who’s considered to be one of the greatest fighters of this generation (he also has a history of violence against women, but that’s a topic for another conversation, and it’s unclear whether Bieber actually knows this about Mayweather). You know who happily joins the entourage of an undefeated boxer? A bandwagon fan.

Luckily for us, the Nate Diaz-Justin Bieber fight took place… on the Internet.

Some people love Justin Bieber, but then again some people don’t. For those that happen to fall in the latter category, the thought of watching the pop star get pummeled brings as much joy as a basket of puppies. Thankfully, YouTuber MMAGAME made this matchup into a reality. As would be the case in real life, Bieber didn’t even even stand a chance.

Mariah Carey Fans Are Cheering For Taylor Swift For Knocking ‘Despacito’ Out Of #1 And It’s Hilarious

After spending 16 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, tying the all-time record set by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men for their hit song “One Sweet Day,” the summer smash “Despacito” has finally been knocked down to second place. Billboard reported on Tuesday that Taylor Swift’s new song “Look What You Made Me Do” had jumped from its #77th debut spot to #1 in just a week, knocking “Despacito” to second place. Twitter took notice.

Some were just as unamused as this little girl:

She was just trying to nosh on some mac-n-cheese when Snow Felicia walked up. Bye, Ms. White.

Some lumped it in with bigger, sadder news.

Sad way to start the month, indeed. Although Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15th to October 15th, this pain will definitely linger for the next 10 days.

Some were more interested in keeping Mariah Carey’s record intact.

Mariah “Nunez” Carey will be fine, she’s got plenty of records to keep her warm.

People were also reminded that Justin Bieber was on the remix.

Although the “Despacito” music video made it to over 3 billion views without Bieber in it at all, there was a time when he was getting all the praise for helping the song reach #1, even though he couldn’t even really sing it…

It was a good run while it lasted, and though they didn’t surpass “One Sweet Day,” it at least tied, cementing the song’s spot in history.

Feeling the “Despacito” blues? Listen to it being played on two calculators, that should cheer you up.

Spotify Dubbed Justin Bieber A ‘Latin King’ And People Called Them Out On It

Spotify Dubbed Justin Bieber A ‘Latin King’ And People Called Them Out On It

It’s no secret that Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” remix featuring Justin Bieber singing in Spanish is super popular. The crossover hit has broken records and continues to dominate the charts. However, many people were not happy with Bieber when he appeared to mock the song during a live performance. Bieber also admitted that he didn’t know the lyrics after fans asked him to sing it at a recent concert (they weren’t too happy about that either).

Regardless of how you feel about the popularity of the song or that Bieber sings in Spanish now (sort of), “Despacito” is a cultural phenomenon, so it’s not going anywhere for a while.

Last week, streaming service Spotify featured this sponsored post on Instagram:

Obviously, the post, which called Bieber a “Latin King,” pissed some people off.

Social justice activist Jeronimo Saldaña was one of the people who were extremely upset over the post, so he did something about it.

In his petition for Spotify to take the sponsored post down, Saldaña writes: “Make no mistake about it— Justin Bieber is most definitely not a Latino. In fact, Bieber’s recent antics mocking the lyrics to ‘Despacito’ by singing gibberish instead of the actual Spanish words show a flagrant disregard for Latinxs and our culture. That’s why Spotify needs to learn some cultural competence before launching these types of ignorant ads campaigns. We want Spotify to pull this ad.”

Saldaña tells mitú that he was also upset about the fact that Spotify recently featured a playlist specifically for the anniversary of the Pulse shooting but didn’t have any Latinx artist on the playlist.

“So the Justin Bieber ad was just the last straw,” Saldaña said. “Our cultura is not for sale and recording one song in Spanish does not make you a ‘Latin King’ and most definitely does not define you as a Latino.”

Saldaña adds that “singing one song in Spanish doesn’t make you the king of a genre” and that he’s not sure what the label “Latin King” even means.

When asked which Latinx artists should be featured on Spotify, Saldaña said he likes Chicano Batman, Carla Morrison, and Rita Indiana.

mitú reached out to Spotify regarding their sponsored post and the petition, and this was their response:

“We made a creative decision to feature Justin Bieber in our ad because we wanted to celebrate ‘Despacito’ as key cultural moment when music genres crossover. We realized that this could be seen as culturally insensitive so we have pulled those ads.”
