Bad Bunny may have defeated The Miz at WrestleMania 37, but the WWE champion still has ‘so much respect’ for the musician. Here’s whether that’s enough to demand a rematch.
Mike “The Miz” Mizanin may have lost to Bad Bunny at WrestleMania 37 on April 10, but he “has gained so much respect for Bad Bunny while he was in the WWE the last few months,” a source close to the the two-time WWE champion EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife. The Miz was impressed that Bad Bunny, who as a singer is a newcomer to the WWE scene, “actually respected the process, the business and really showed up ready for their match at WrestleMania,” our source adds. But is that respect enough for The Miz to call for a rematch against the Grammy-winning Latin artist?
The answer is yes, apparently. Last Saturday’s match — which was actually a tag team match, which pitted Bad Bunny and Damian Priest against The Miz and John Morrison — “will forever be known as one of the best celebrity crossovers in wrestling history,” our source continues. So, with that said, our insider leaves us with this: “The Miz would love to have another match with Bad Bunny in the future.”
The Miz sounds far from sour, despite his loss. “They made a lot of magic that night with their tag partners and The Miz for one would love to run it back one more time down the road when Bunny isn’t preparing or being on a tour,” our source adds. On April 11, Bad Bunny announced his El Último Tour del Mundo tour (named after his 2020 album), which is scheduled for performances across the U.S. between February-April 2022.
Despite Bad Bunny’s busy schedule, The Miz is willing to wait, according to our insider. “So even if it takes more than a year to get a match together again, The Miz would be first in line to want to make it all happen,” our source says. “He would be all for it and believes they could actually get something figured out.”

The Miz was pretty confident that he’d come out of their match at WrestleMania 37 as the winner. “Let’s just hope that his fans don’t hate me after I’m done with him,” The Miz EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife on our podcast, leading up to the match. The Miz & Mrs star made sure to pay his respects to his opponent too, though.
“There is no denying the fact that Bad Bunny is a huge megastar in the music world. I mean, he won a Grammy. He was an SNL musical guest. Not only that, but he was with Shakira and J.Lo when they were doing the Super Bowl, like he was involved in that performance. That’s how big of a celebrity he is,” Miz told us.
The Miz couldn’t give his wrestling rival too much credit, though. He told HollywoodLife, “But when you come into my realm, which is WWE, and when you come into our biggest event, which is WrestleMania, and you’re staring at me, who is a two time Grand Slam champion, the only two time Grand Slam champion the history of the company, you’re gonna have a problem. And I’m going to teach him the way of the ropes in WWE.”
From Brooklyn Decker to Patrick Dempsey, many celebrities are choosing to embrace their natural gray hair instead of cover it up. Even younger stars, like Kylie Jenner, love the silvery color!
While some people see gray hairs as something to cover up, not these celebrities. Some stars embrace their natural gray roots, while others purposefully dye their hair for an all-over gray transformation. Either way, gray is such a gorgeous color: so much so, even people in their celebrities in their 20’s and early 30’s are choosing to dye their hair the timeless shade (like Lady Gaga and Kylie Jenner). We put the spotlight on a few gray-headed celebrities below; you can also click through the photos in HollywoodLife‘s gallery above.

Leading the pack of celebrities with beautiful grey hair is 34-year-old model Brooklyn Decker. It’s natural for people in their 30’s (and even in their 20’s) to see gray roots spring up in their colorful manes, which Brooklyn proved with the selfie above. “Grays on grays on grays for days and I’m kinda digging ‘em,” Brooklyn captioned the photo shared on April 6. While Brooklyn admitted that she was getting her roots “colored next week” because she’s “not ready for the full commitment,” the model still “certainly enjoyed” her gray phase.
Meanwhile, Jane Fonda has made grey hair last longer than a phase. While she rose to fame in the ’60s as a bombshell blonde starring in movies like Barbarella, Jane has swapped her sunshine-colored waves for a short spunky ‘do featuring many wispy layers of stunning silver hair. Jane’s mane needs help to maintain, though.
Thanks to the work of hair colorist Jack Martin, Jane showed up to the 2020 Oscars with iced-out hair. Over a year later, the famous actress and activist is still happy with her decision to part ways with the blonde. “I tell you, I’m so happy I let it go gray. Enough already with so much time wasted, so much money spent, so many chemicals — I’m through with that,” Jane happily declared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Feb. 25.

It’s not just the ladies embracing their gray hair, either. There are many male celebrities who look like silver foxes, literally, with their gray-silver hair. Take Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey, for example. While his hair is not completely gray like Ms. Fonda’s, he does sport a signature pepper shade (AKA, a cross between gray and dark hair).
With five kids, you’d think potty training would be a breeze for Tori Spelling. But she made fun of the hardship in a video where son Beau ‘peed’ all over her instead.
Tori Spelling, 47, showed fans how “potty training” with her youngest son Beau, 4, was going in a hilarious Instagram Reel. In the clip, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star was seen relaxing on a pool cot while sipping on what looks like a cocktail, while her son was taking a fake tinkle nearby. Beau then turned and, thanks to special effects, it looked like he accidentally peed on Tori, and let’s just say there is a lot of “urine” involved. Tori captioned the video with the hashtags “#momlife #pottytrainingfail #fml,” the last being “f**k my life.”
Tori looked vacation gorgeous, kicked back in a black floral top with a big ruffled neckline and Daisy Duke shorts. She took a sip of her drink and looked over at her son with his swim trunks down and pretending to urinate on the ground next to her. Tori immediately yelled “Beau noooo!” Then she made horrified expressions has he appeared to turn to her and the liquid kept spraying her, as Travis‘ 2012 hit “Why Does It Always Rain On Me?” played over the video. There was so much “pee” that Tori’s long blonde curls were soaked by the end of the reel, which you can see here:
Beau is the youngest of Tori’s five kids, including Liam, 14, Stella, 12, Hattie, 9, and Finn, 8, who she shares with husband Dean McDermott, 54. The family is currently enjoying a vacation in Palm Springs, CA, where Tori shared another video of herself rocking a fabulous red bikini by the pool at the Westin Mission Hills resort in Rancho Mirage. No pee-related incidents that time!
Leading up to the family getaway, Tori joked that she was expecting baby “No. 6” as part of an April Fool’s prank. Many fans weren’t laughing, and thought the joke was insensitive, especially to couples having difficulty conceiving a child. Tori later explained her thought process behind the prank, writing in an Instagram message, “Every week press and magazine outlets ask if I’m pregnant. To set the record straight, I am not. The fact is, after my fifth baby, my body didn’t bounce back like it had before. That’s when the constant questions of ‘yet another’ pregnancy first began. Unless you’re in the public eye, it’s hard to understand what it feels like to be body shamed so publicly.”
“My post was simply to turn the tables on for once on the press. They constantly create wild and often hurtful stories about me, my body and my family,” Tori added. “For those of you that are hurt, I hear you. I love you. I welcome your stories and I will try my best to be there and support you. Please accept this as a virtual hug to my entire community.” Sadly, she neglected use the words “I’m sorry” or “I apologize” in the statement, causing a number of followers to point that out to the actress.
Luke Bryan laughed while spilling the details on how he and his wife Caroline stay close both mentally and physically, in a new interview.
Luke Bryan, 44, is giving his fans an idea of how he and wife Caroline, 41, stay close and make things work with a little humor and honesty. The singer recently gave an interview to theSKIMM and when he was asked what the secret to his 14-year marriage is, he said, “Communicate and make-up sex” with a chuckle. The lovebirds have been married since 2006 and share sons Thomas, 13, and Tatum, 10, together so they definitely know a thing or two about commitment and family life!
In addition to his marriage, Luke opened up about his fellow American Idol judge Katy Perry, 36, and her new baby Daisy, whom she shares with fiance Orlando Bloom, 44, in the interview. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, he hasn’t been able to meet the seven-month-old tot in person just yet, but he has been able to see her on a video call. “I have FaceTimed on set with Katy’s precious daughter Dasiy Dove,” he explained. “But I haven’t been able to do the baby fat, pinching the cheeks stuff yet.”
Luke also answered random questions during the fun interview like what his dream collaboration would be. He picked the talented Rihanna, 33, for that answer. He also said Lionel Richie, 71, would be the one American Idol co-worker he’d want to quarantine with because his house is “ginormous.”
Before Luke made headlines for his latest interview answers, he did so by getting a hook stuck through his hand during a fishing accident last month. He shared a graphic video of his hand after the incident as well as posts of him waiting to get it out, but luckily all was well after and he went back to enjoying the sport. “Got the hook out. We’re back,” he said in a follow-up video of him giving a thumbs up and smile to the camera.
It’s great to know Luke is both okay and relishing in a joyous and satisfying marriage with Caroline! He recently had to take a break from his position on American Idol after he tested positive for COVID-19, but he’s been posting on his social media regularly and keeping his fans up to date. We hope to see him back on our television screens soon!
Sugar Ray vocalist Mark McGrath was revealed as the Orca on ‘The Masked Singer.’ He spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HL about why he joined the show, keeping it a secret from his kids, and more.
It’s getting down to the wire on The Masked Singer. Another major celebrity was eliminated during the season 5 Group A finals on The Masked Singer. After coming in as a wildcard in a previous week, Sugar Ray frontman and ’90s icon Mark McGrath was revealed as the Orca.
HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Mark about why he decided to do the show. He admitted that The Masked Singer is the only singing competition he’ll ever do in his life. The singer also revealed why he’s so “grateful” for the show and what Sugar Ray is up to right now.
Why did you want to do this show?
Mark McGrath: Ironically, the reason why I wanted to do the show is because it scared the living daylights out of me. It scared me. It’s a singing competition. Now, ironically, I make my living as a singer/entertainer. I always throw entertainer on the back because I’ve had an on-off relationship with keying my whole life. I’ve got more of a tone than a technical singer. So if it was just the singing competition with no mask, I would never have entered it in a million years. You have the fact that you could be someone else you, you could become this character, and that was something that was very attractive to me. So I would never enter a singing competition ever in my life, but The Masked Singer worked for me, in that sense. I have 10-year-old twins, and they love the show, so I said I have to do it.
How did your twins react when they found out you were going to be on the show?
Mark McGrath: Well, I kept it from them. They don’t know. They’ll figure it out tonight. They’re little blabbermouths, so I had to keep it from them, which was difficult because it was during the pandemic. Everybody was locked down. They were around. They weren’t going to school, so we had to do a little bit of dodging and weaving. But somehow we made it happen.
I know that the celebs usually have a lot of costumes to choose from, but what was it about the Orca costume that really stood out to you?
Mark McGrath: It’s so funny. It was the first idea they showed me. It was the first articulation of the costume. They couldn’t have nailed it more. It was right on the bull’s eye. I love the idea of the Orca because I grew up in Newport Beach, California. I surfed and all that. I’m a Pisces. I’m a fish sign. I just felt really comfortable right away. Some of the costumes are kind of crazy, like the Baby Alien and stuff like that, which makes the show fun. I really related to Orca. When I saw the artistic design articulation during one of the meetings, I’m like, this is perfect. It was exactly what they showed on the articulation. There’s a reason why that costume department is winning 1000s of Emmys every year. I couldn’t have been happier with my costume.
What was it like performing in the costume?
Mark McGrath: I could move my arms and legs. The tail was a balance issue. It took a little getting used to. The head was really top-heavy, and I couldn’t see anything. I could see the ground in front of me when I was performing, but I couldn’t see the judges. I couldn’t see anything. That was something I had to get used to… performing for the floor. You could feel the energy, but you couldn’t see anything, and even when I was talking to the judges I kind of just had to go with where their voice was. There was definitely a sight factor that limited your movement a little bit, especially my first performance when there was a lot of choreography going on. It was like a Ziegfeld’s production. It was so amazing. I came down with an anchor. It was unbelievable. There were some choreography moves that I had to do, or at least points that I had to hit, that got a little difficult with the costume but “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” was just more straightforward. With my costume, I felt an emotional attachment to it. In fact, I felt like I let Orca down when I got eliminated. Taking that mask off for the last time, I felt sad because it the last time it was going to be a living, breathing thing. [The last time] to give it a heartbeat, some emotions, and character. As I was taking it off, I felt like I let Orca down. I got such an attachment to the mask.
You dedicated your last performance to your dad. How were you feeling during that emotional performance?
Mark McGrath: What The Masked Singer loves to do is keep you in the dark. You don’t see anybody else. I didn’t see the clue package before I performed in front of the judges. They were super emotional, Robin [Thicke] especially was because he lost his father. He’s got young kids, so he knows what that’s about. It turned really emotional, and I didn’t understand why. You do so many interviews or pre-interviews with the production so they can really dig into history and put these wonderful packages together. I didn’t see the package until the show. When I saw the package I started crying before I started performing. When I was on the show, I said like, “Oh my God. I didn’t know I’d be in an Orca costume shedding a tear.” I meant that at the time because it got really emotional very quickly. I didn’t understand, and that’s because they saw this wonderful package. I’m so grateful to them because my dad was fortunate enough to see the twins being born. He was able to hold them as babies, but my kids have no memory of him. But now they have this wonderful documentation, and that little package that shows how much their dad loved them.
The past year has been a crazy year for everyone. In addition to The Masked Singer, is Sugar Ray working on anything right now?
Mark McGrath: We’re always working. The band does two things if you’re fortunate enough to get to that position: you play live and release music. Obviously, we play live a lot more, and that’s something that’s more visual because I’m promoting it on social and stuff like that. There really isn’t a medium anymore for selling music. My band comes from the years of when we sold millions of records, and then they’d give you a million dollars to go make a record. That was the dawn. But thankfully, we love to write songs, so we always keep releasing new material. And if you want to hear it, it’s going to be available for you. And if you don’t, we fully understand. We are always integrating new songs into the set. We know no one wants to hear new songs, we get it. We’ll always play the hits that we hope some people want to hear, but we also enjoy being creative with writing. It’s fun to do something like The Masked Singer because I always have my day job Sugar Ray to go back to. It’s really fun to get to step outside that and be the Orca, and then come back to Sugar Ray.
