Black Keys’ Patrick Carney fully assimilated, is now Justin Bieber

Approximately 1 billion young girls currently use a photo of Justin Bieber for their Twitter avatar, and now Patrick Carney, drummer of the Grammy award winning duo The Black Keys, is doing the same. For good measure, he’s also changed his user name to “Justin Bieber drums.” Why? He’s trolling the Bieliebers, plain and simple.

Here’s a shot of Carney’s new look, just in case he decides to rethink this career move and change it back.


After Carney suggested that the Bieber-less Grammy ceremony was “for music, not money,” Bieber tweeted that Carney should be “slapped around.” Bieber’s fans descended on Carney, who fought back bravely … until he was assimilated. Now he is Justin Bieber.

Drake Bell’s offhand tweet that he’d “randomly bash” Bieber led to weeks of death threats. Will Carney fare any better?

For good measure, Patrick’s brother Michael has changed his name to Miley.


It seems Carney’s still working out the bugs in his DNA recombination process at the moment. Now he’s Justin Bieber 2.0.

Update: The Beliebers are starting to catch on, and most aren’t pleased with the existence of a second Justin.

    Do you think that these idiots will ever see a time when they look back upon these remarks,and this time;and realize what total D’ bags they are or were?

    • waltzingmtilda

      We can hope so. Heck, I still occasionally do stupid things on the internet and cringe over it for ages.

  • wtf

    All respect for Carney lost…He’s acting like a friggin douchebag now.

    EPIC. Wasn’t really into the Black Keys, but I’m coming around! LOL

    • waltzingmtilda

      I know…this is like my favorite thing on the Internet right now. And I’m actually a JB fan.

    saw the black keys before dweeber’s mouth was Ushers cum urinal. Black keys were a killer opener, some say better than the main act – many left after they opened. Beiber is uses he power for all the wrong things. It is about time someone unmasks the little fuck

  • Tangchung

    Have no dog in this fight. Just would be funny if JB followed thru and slapped the guy around.

      Because he could reach…

  • blueniner

    I like the Black Keys but I hope this Carney isnt a moron like Obamas Jay Carney.

  • mike_in_kosovo

    “Are you gay?”


    So, they really *do* think he’s Bieber?

  • el_polacko

    what the heck is this guy’s obsession with bieber ?? is it professional jealousy or is it love ?

    • waltzingmtilda

      He was asked at the Grammys what he thought about JB not being nominated/invited to perform. His response pissed off the Biebs, and subsequently the Beliebers (yes, that is how they talk). Since then they’ve been tweeting him non-stop…this is just his funny way of responding.

    While I’m no fan of Bieber, I have to say that this Carney loser has problems. If he hates Bieber as much as it seems, why is he obsessing about Bieber?

    Bieber is living rent-free in the guy’s head. Right now, the score is Bieber 1 Carney 0.

    • opticnaut

      Trolling is an art which can never be appreciated by mere mortals. It has obviously left you clueless and dumbfounded at the magnificent work of Justin Bieber 2.0.

      • Garth Haycock

        Trolls are small-minded idiots and trolling is their way of demonstrating their idiocy.

    • mike_in_kosovo

      Actually, he’s living rent-free in the beliebers’ heads…

  • Bristel

    He is the Bieber. Resistance is futile.

  • Diana Dee

    Patrick Carney is adorkable as JB. Big fan of the Black Keys.

  • Ben Bollman

    Glad we can focus on the important things in life

  • LochGates44

    Bieber is nothing but a wannabe little punk. Carney wins this by default.
