The title prizefight will occur at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas — and The Biebs is set to be part of Mayweather’s

Elton John feels “sorry” for Lindsay Lohan and Justin Bieber , and has even penned a song, “The Diving Board” —
also the title of his upcoming album — about them getting “swallowed up” in fame.
While John himself led a booze and drug-fueled life when he was younger, he says the track isn’t about himself.
“It’s about Lindsay Lohan, Justin, all these kids who are out there now not knowing what the hell is going
on,” he tells Event magazine.
He adds, “I hate to think of Lindsay because she had a talent, she was a great actress, and then it became all about the madness, the parties and everyone forgets about what put them there in the first place; they get lost in the idea that they are famous for who
they are, not what they are.”
“I feel sorry for these kids. I was 23 when I got famous. And I made every mistake in the book,” says John, noting however, “But whatever was going on, the drinking, the drugs, whatever, I was still making music, I kept making music and I never stopped.”
He explains in the mag, “It was definitely rehab that saved me but it was music, that work ethic, that sense of ‘this is what I’m here for’ that kept me from totally blowing away in a bubble.”
The 66-year-old rock legend, who recently had a near fatal appendicitis, says he’s still “passionate” about making music, but “I worry that these kids will just get swallowed up.”

Justin Bieber turned the Internet upside-down on Friday when he posted an Instagram photo of a “Bieber”
watermarked Man of Steel sequel script

The screenplay bears the title “Batman vs. Superman” and the description, “Based on Batman: The Dark Knight Falls by Frank Miller & Klaus Janson.”
