JUSTIN BIEBER admitted he wasn’t serious about fighting TOM CRUISE. “I don’t know him. The story is I saw an interview with him, and he was just on my mind.  It was just a random tweet.  I do that stuff sometimes.”


SELENA GOMEZ is the 3rd most-followed person on Instagram, but she doesn’t even have it on her phone anymore. She says it wasn’t good for her to use it all the time, but she has it on a friend’s phone when she needs it.


A list of Episodes that Changed TV: the “Who Shot J.R.” cliffhanger from “Dallas”, Lucy’s pregnancy on “I Love Lucy”, the coming out episode of “Ellen”, and Ned Stark’s death on “Game of Thrones”.


The torture never stops. Soon, your kids will be begging you to take them to “Baby Shark Live!”  Dates will be announced next month.  It’s described as, “a fully immersive, one-of-a-kind musical experience.”


Chris Janson, Craig Morgan, and John Conlee asked LUKE COMBS on Tuesday to join The Grand Ole Opry and he was speechless. He doubled over and started crying, and then hugged all three of them. One at a time.  The video is on the Grand Ole Opry Facebook page.  Luke said, “This is the feather in my cap as far as career goals.  It’s #1.  It cannot be surpassed.  It’s something I’ve dreamed about since I made my debut.  It’s such a storied thing.  I was like, ‘I’ll do whatever it takes to become a member.'” In an interview backstage he added, “You never think it’s going to happen.  When they asked, I literally couldn’t believe it.  I didn’t know what to say.  There’s nothing to say but yes, and I didn’t even say yes.  I just cried the whole time.”


Some people aren’t happy with MAREN MORRIS for doing that PG-13 “Playboy” shoot. She posted sample pics Tuesday on Twitter. There were plenty of positive comments, but one person wrote, “No longer a fan.”  Another said, “Oh, Maren.  Why?” So she posted a response on her Instagram story.  She said, “The thing about me is, I make music for myself.  I learned later that it touches others, which is the most wonderful byproduct of a songwriter’s calling.


Taste of Country had JIMMIE ALLEN read a bunch of dad jokes in honor of Father’s Day. Like this one: “What did the janitor say when he jumped out of the closet? Supplies!!!” Jimmie has a five-year-old son named Aadyn.


TIGER WOODS’ ex-wife ELIN NORDEGREN is pregnant. In the photos, Nordegren was spotted without an engagement or wedding ring. It is unclear who the father of the child is.


RON HOWARD is still married to his high school sweetheart.


Kendall Jenner has never eaten a Hershey’s kiss. There’s a clip that features Khloe Kardashian eating one and saying, “Wow. A Hershey’s Kiss is pretty epic.” Kendall replies, “Really?” “I’ve never had one.”


Father’s Day is almost here so JAY DEMARCUS of Rascal Flatts was asked about his relationship with his dad. He joked around saying his dad told him he’d never amount to anything, and that he planned to be “just as crappy” to his kids. The point being that his dad expected a lot, and it worked.  “He was pretty hard on me growing up and I’m grateful that he was.  He was one of those guys that always pushed me to be better and do better . . . and I learned a lot from him.”


COLE SWINDELL will be releasing a live version of “Dad’s Old Number”. It was recorded at Joe’s Bar in Chicago.  He said, “The raw emotion of performing this song live in front of my fans at Joe’s was pretty overwhelming and a moment I won’t ever forget.”


KRISTIAN BUSH of Sugarland has been on tour with Rita Wilson. Rita’s a pretty big draw, which explains why former First Lady Michelle Obama saw their show in Washington D.C. on Tuesday. Kristian Tweeted out a photo of them together, and wrote, “Thank you @MichelleObama for singing along last night.”


Back in 2014 Taylor Swift hinted that there may be some bad blood between her and Katy Perry. Now, the apparent feud is over.  Taylor sent Kate a plate of chocolate chip cookies with the words “peace at last” spelled out in frosting.  Kate captioned the image, “Feels good @taylorswift,” to which Swift replied with 13 heart emojis.  Perry literally extended an olive branch on the opening night of Swift’s “Reputation” tour last summer: an olive branch with a note trying to clear things up.

MAREN MORRIS and RYAN HURD are starting a family. She posted a photo of them as she displays her baby bump.  She captioned it, “The irony is just too rich that after a year of living in the ‘Girl’ headspace, the universe would give us a baby boy to even things out.  See you in…

A new trailer for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” hit YouTube yesterday, and fans are FREAKING OUT because it looks like a very popular character is going to bite the dust. There’s a scene where some little welding droid is doing work on the back of C-3PO’s head, and Poe Dameron asks, “What are…
