However, it’s not just boxing fans stirring the pot ahead of the rematch: even major celebrities are buzzing about the fight, including Canadian pop star Justin Bieber.

Logan Paul, TwitterKSI and Logan Paul will touch gloves at the Los Angeles Staples Center on November 9 to settle their beef once and for all.

Justin Bieber is no stranger to internet stars, having made friends with Logan Paul via Instagram over the summer – but one of Paul’s September Instagram posts elicited a strong reaction from the singer.

Paul posted another promotional video to hype up his rematch on September 20, which featured a look inside his training regimen as well as his appearance in the September 14 press conference.

Bieber had a passionate stance on the subject, writing in a comment, “Rip his head off” – obviously referencing Paul’s longtime rival and rematch opponent, KSI.

This wouldn’t be the first time Bieber has commented on the YouTubers’ upcoming fight, either: the star likewise claimed that KSI had showed up at his house in another post of Paul’s in late August, where the internet sensation wrote, “…KSI, I’m going to break every bone in your face later this year.”

In fact, things weren’t always friendly between the two celebs, as Logan Paul even challenged Bieber to a boxing match after the singer called out actor Tom Cruise for a UFC match.

The singer even seemed to be up for the challenge, responding to Paul’s proposition of “let’s dance” with, “I’ll fight the both of you at the same time” – although that potential fight has yet to come about months later.

With both KSI and Logan Paul having only two months to train, fans and critics alike are waiting with bated breath for them to settle their beef once and for all – as is Justin Gaethje, apparently.

The Billboard Music Awards kicked off on the night of October 14, and TikTok star Addison Rae was one of the personalities conscripted to host them; but her presentation for winner Harry Styles didn’t go as planned.

Addison Rae is one of TikTok’s most popular (and highest paid) content creators, boasting well over 40 million followers on the app for her cutesy choreography and bubbly, Southern personality.

As one of the net’s biggest celebrities, it came as little surprise that she was assigned to help host the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, alongside fellow TikToker Spencer Polanco Knight and even singer Kelly Clarkson.

However, her presentation for ‘Watermelon Sugar’ singer and One Direction member Harry Styles wasn’t well-received, with many on the net taking issue with her “awkward” demeanor on-stage.

In fact, it doesn’t seem that Rae even opened up the envelope when she presented his award, which she accepted “on his behalf,” since he couldn’t be present at the Los Angeles Dolby Theater for the ceremony.

Her mannerisms incited quite a bit of criticism from online viewers, who found her stage presence to be less-than-ideal, with some also taking issue with a social media influencer taking part in such a prestigious event.

“Why was that the most awkward presentation… EVER?” one critic wrote.

“I feel awkward… does anyone else feel awkward?” another chimed in.

“She looks like she is in a funeral,” one user quipped. “Also, the way in how she announced that Harry won is so cringy. Like girl, put some emotion in it, ‘cause its Harry freaking Styles who you’re talking about, not a TikTok dancer.”

Although Rae has yet to respond to the criticism she’s received since presenting Harry’s award, it certainly is exciting to see influencers break into the space of traditional celebrities — although there’s bound to be some bumps in the road along the way.
