Beefs 2013: Justin Bieber Says Black Keys' Patrick Carney "Should Be Slapped Around"
Following the Grammy Awards ceremony on Sunday (February 10), Carney was asked by a TMZ reporter what he thought of Bieber receiving no nominations. "He's rich, right?" the drummer responded, before adding, "Grammys are for music, not for money, and he's making a lot of money. I don't know. He should be happy, I guess."
Evidently this didn't sit too well with the Biebs, since today (February 12) he tweeted, "the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha."
As of press time, this message has been retweeted over 30,000 times. Still, this can't quite make up for the fact that the Black Keys won three Grammys (not including frontman Dan Auerbach's Producer of the Year nod) while Bieber failed to get nominated.
Carney has been known to be outspoken before, as he previously made headlines by slamming Spotify/Napster mogul Sean Parker, among others.
