Floyd Mayweather objects to Justin Bieber question: That’s racial profiling

Some clueless, nosy reporter showed up to Floyd Mayweather’s press conference in Chicago this week and decided to question his relationship with fellow entertainers Johnny Manziel and Justin Bieber. Floyd didn’t care for the line of questioning and even suggested the woman was “racial profiling.”

Floyd Mayweather Peggy KusinskiFirst NBC Chicago reporter Peggy Kusinski asked Floyd about his relationship with Manziel and Bieber, which was likely in reference to this photo. Then she specifically asked about his relationship with Bieber. Kusinski wanted to know if those are friends or marketing partners.

Kusinski said to Floyd, “people think that’s the oddest match-up — you two together.”

Floyd responded that “that’s kind of racial profiling.”

As soon as Floyd objected to the question, Kusinski tried to quickly spin it and ask what kind of music he listens to.

The whole line of questioning was a clumsy attempt by a clueless reporter to put down Floyd. She has no idea about “The Money Team.” She is clueless about how Floyd builds his brand. And she is clueless about how long Floyd and Bieber have been homies. And while she tries to insinuate Floyd’s friendship with Bieber is fake, she’s the one who comes off as a phony with those patronizing looks and questions. And she’s such a professional journalist that she admitted she was a fan of Floyd and even threw in a “lol” about her question.

Nice going, Peggy.

No, it’s not racial profiling to question how Floyd is friends with Bieber. But the question is an example of you being an insulting member of the square media who clearly does not get it.

Jay Williams and Justin Bieber bro’d out, and Jay’s Twitter followers didn’t like it

Some tweets just speak for themselves and require no commentary. This would be one of them.

This was sent by former Duke star point guard Jay Williams Monday night after he hung out with Justin Bieber:

As you could imagine, Jay was feeling the backlash rather quickly. These were some of my favorite responses he received over Twitter:

Genie Bouchard off the Justin Bieber train because of his bad image

Genie Bouchard Wimbledon

Genie Bouchard best run at a major came in January and also happened to coincide with the time she first gained recognition among sports fans.

The young Canadian star reached the semifinals of the Australian Open earlier this year and also made headlines for saying she’d like to date Justin Bieber when pressed about her celebrity crush. After reaching the finals at Wimbledon Thursday, Bouchard was asked whether there’s been any progress on the Bieber front.

“I hope so,” Bouchard said when asked if her efforts have gotten her noticed by Bieber. “I’m putting in so much hard work. I want to see this hard work rewarded.”

The media continued to press Bouchard on the subject. She said they haven’t been in touch … and she’s also not sure if they should be.

“And he’s kind of been in trouble recently. I’m not associated with that at the moment,” she said with a laugh. “But if he cleans up his image maybe …”

Wait, so you’re saying there’s still a chance for it to happen? Bouchard definitely seems to have her head on straight, so I don’t think Bieber fits into that picture unless she decides to take the Jennifer Capriati career path. In other words, yeah, she’s too good for the Biebs. Then again, don’t all young girls love a bad boy?

Johnny Manziel hangs with Justin Bieber, Floyd Mayweather

Johnny Manziel has faced a lot of scrutiny for going out and having a good time since he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns. Legendary former NFL players like Joe Montana have even suggested that he tone down the partying a bit. So how does Johnny Football respond? By trying to break the internet.

On Tuesday morning, Justin Bieber posted some photos on the social media sight Shots of him partying with his “boys.” The crew included Manziel, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and rapper/actor Tyrese.

According to TMZ, Manziel, Mayweather and company were partying at Bieber’s house in Beverly Hills. The police reportedly came to the house twice for noise complaints, but one time was because packs of young girls were screaming outside the condo.

Manziel hung out with Chantel Jeffries earlier this month, who happens to be DeSean Jackson’s ex-girlfriend and the young lady Bieber was with when he was popped for DUI. And we already knew Bieber and Mayweather were close friends.

It all finally makes sense. Manziel is doing what all of our college professors urged us to do before and after graduating — networking. Who can blame him?

Justin Bieber reportedly investigated for attempted robbery

This can’t be real, can it?

Justin Bieber is being investigated by LAPD for an alleged attempted robbery, ABC 7 in Los Angeles reports.

Details about the alleged robbery are not in at the moment, but we’re guessing Bieber was busted at a department store trying to steal some skinny jeans and lipstick. Just a guess. Hopefully DeSean Jackson’s ex-girlfriend was not in the dressing room with him when he was trying on the skinny jeans.

Or maybe this could just be some person making up a story about what the Biebs allegedly did to him/her. We’ll update accordingly. We’re still banking on the lipstick angle.

Kobe Bryant and friend have bet over whether Justin Bieber, Katy Perry will implode first

Justin Bieber has officially reached the point in his young career where people have little interest in talking about his music. The general public is more concerned about Bieber’s recent DUI arrest and his tendency to believe he is above the law. Kobe Bryant believes that behavior will ultimately lead to the downfall of Bieber’s career.

In a feature that was written on Bryant for the New Yorker, there is mention of a running bet that Kobe has going with a business associate. Kobe and his buddy, a big Bieber fan, have apparently bet on whether it will be Katy Perry or Bieber that self-destructs first.

Bryant, who wears self-discipline like a badge, has long favored the more predictable Perry’s odds, and found in Bieber’s recent tabloid episodes hints of a looming implosion: talent spurned. As he and the associate walked into the dining room at the Four Seasons, in downtown Miami, in late January, the associate, a Belieber, mentioned that Bryant had been giving him a hard time about it for years. He seemed almost ready to concede. That morning, elsewhere in Miami, Bieber had been caught drag racing and booked for driving under the influence.

Bieber has also gotten into trouble for egging his neighbor’s house and pissed off various NFL stars by speeding through his and their neighborhood. I don’t really follow celebrity gossip too closely, but I don’t hear much about Perry getting into trouble with the law.

As someone who signed his first NBA contract at the age of 17, Kobe knows plenty about reaching celebrity stardom at a young age. I like his chances with the wager.
