This is one scrawny piece of beef if we’ve ever seen one. Justin Bieber and Patrick Carney, drummer for the Black Keys, got into a little indirect tiff over some comments. Carney made the statement when he was pressed to say something, anything, by a paparazzo waiting outside Chateau Marmont. It’s pretty dumb, but as long as we’re not being sensational, we’re not above it. Via Pigeons and Planes:
After the Grammys, TMZ asked Patrick Carney of The Black Keys whether or not he felt that Justin Bieber should have been nominated for an award. The always outspoken Carney responded, “He’s rich right?… 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.”
Here’s Bieber’s “tough guy” response.
the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) February 12, 2013
We doubt Mr. Bieber’s management would allow him to break a nail, so maybe Carney should watch his back for the hired help. However, Bieber does flaunt his drumming abilities whenever he can, maybe they could settle the dispute that way?
