Fightin’ words: Justin Bieber tweets, ‘The Black Keys drummer should be slapped around’

Burn? OK then.

Much to the chagrin of Beliebers everywhere, Justin Bieber failed to land a single Grammy Award nod this year. He tried (without much success) to put on his own Sunday night show.

The Black Keys took home four awards. When asked by TMZ about the Biebs getting snubbed, drummer Patrick Carney said, “Grammys are for like music, not for money … and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”

Looks like Bieber isn’t happy … with Carney. Justin took to Twitter Tuesday morning to … draw the drummer into a slap-fight? We’re pretty sure that wouldn’t end well for either one of them.

Will Bieber delete the tweet?

A true Belieber.

    Grammy’s are generally awarded for talent and this spoiled brat has very little!

      I think the kid has talent but he has just been made into a parody and remade by Hollywood. Before his discovery, his YouTube videos were quite good. Celebrity ruins people.

        Wait until his voice changes.

      • ReeFungorio

        So now that he’s famous those videos are no longer good? Sounds like the problem is yours, not his.

          You have a real misunderstanding of what I said. His videos are still good, and I think he has talent, but he has been made into something that he probably hadn’t intended.

      The Grammy’s are generally awarded for talent? That’s a damn lie and you know it!

    All of my money and my first-born child on Patrick Carney.

    Such a lovely young lady, to be talking trash like this. /tsk

    I’m not a fan of Bieber, and he should have taken the advice that Steve Young gave Aaron Rodgers when he was waiting for Brett Favre to retire: “Don’t say something [you’ll regret] that will make you feel good for 30 seconds.”

    That having been said, the Black Keys dude was REALLY being a douche. The whole thing was a result of a quickie interview by one of those TMZ tools who ask dumb questions to celebs, hoping for an answer that will stir up hits on the website and get people to tune in to the nightly show. He asked the BK drummer (whose name I don’t know or care to Google) if he thought Bieber — who wasn’t nominated in any category — “was snubbed by the Grammys.”

    It was a set-up; the idea was to bait a “serious” artist into attacking the un-hip, AutoTuned, babyfaced flavor of the half-decade. And it worked. BK guy replied “He’s rich, right? Grammys are for like music, not for money. He’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”

    So, to sum up: It wasn’t enough that the Black Keys won four Grammys. It wasn’t enough that they have the respect of their peers and national exposure they probably never expected. It wasn’t enough that Bieber was neither nominated nor at the event, showing how those same peers that love them feel about the teenthrob. No, they gotta bag on him for being “rich,” as if the Keys do what they do out of the goodness of their hearts and any change people can spare. Oh, the poor Black Keys. They can’t be happy with their success and acclaim; they have to take shots at people with more success and less acclaim.

    Bieber’s barely of legal age. That BK guy ain’t. Pettiness looks better on Bieber than on him.

      You are a Bieber fan, dont deny your fandom.

        Google my name with Bieber’s. Seriously, do it. You will find love for his mother Pattie Mallette who chose not to abort him, but none for his singing career.

  • juli

    Patrick was graceless. Bieber was a asshole.

  • Steve_J

    The “Grammys” are about music. Now that’s funny.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      I have to agree. Alison Krauss got only one nomination and Jerry Douglas criminally got none!

      And the Grammy for Best Ad representation goes to….LENA DUNHAM FOR PLOCHMANN’S MUSTARD! :p

  • NCRelite

    The Grammys are for posers and sellouts. I stopped watching them when I was a kid because I realized how lame it all was

    • TheOriginalDonald

      ALISON KRAUSS IS NOT A POSER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • aegean1

    Didn’t Milli Vanilli win a Grammy? Tell me again why this stupid award show is still around?

      It entertains the simple minded without taxing them.

    I’m surprised that the dem-wits aren’t denouncing Bieber as a racist for calling the Keys drummer, black. Wait for it…

    When Bieber can’t afford bodyguards, he better watch out. He is making enemies everywhere.
