The Grammys might be the only musical awards that could not be persuaded to give Justin Bieber a nomination but that didn’t stop Bieber, his mother and his loyal group of vicious fans from being upset. But there’s one person that we can count on not feeling sorry for Bieber and his “problem”, Patrick Carney, the drummer of now seven-time Grammy Award winners, The Black Keys. Carney was asked by TMZ what he had thought about Justin Bieber being snubbed by the Grammys. To this question Carney responded with: “He’s rich, right? Grammys are for like music, not for money… and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”
Bieber responded to the rocker’s statement on Twitter with: “the black keys drummer should be slapped around hahaha”. You can see the tweet below.
For anyone who is not familiar with Carney, this is not the first time that he had spoken negative things about artists. Last year, Carney blasted Canadian rock band, Nickelback by saying in an interview: “Rock ‘n’ roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world.”
