It’s been a while since we heard anything from The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney and his “obsession” with Justin Bieber. Considering all the trouble the pop star has gotten himself into since the initial “hatefest” began, it’s surprising that Carney hasn’t said anything.
While being interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine recently, his silence on the matter went out the window when he was asked by reporter Patrick Doyle to chim on on Bieber. “Justin Bieber, like a fucking irresponsible asshole, sicced 40 million Twitter followers on me because I paid him a compliment he didn’t understand.”
For those that don’t remember, it all started when Bieber got upset because he was snubbed for a Grammy. When asked by a TMZ photographer about his opinion on the matter, Carney simply replied with “Grammys are for music, not for the money. He should be happy.”
Of course not understanding humor, Bieber sicced his Belieb-hoard on the drummer by tweeting, “The Black Keys drummer should be slapped around haha.”
During his interview with Doyle, Carney was asked in what sense was his statement a compliment. Carney responded with: “I’m saying that he should be grateful he has a career in music. And he shouldn’t be fucking telling his followers to slap me, and then also be doing anti-bullying bullshit. It’s so irresponsible.”
But that’s not even where it end. He continues to throw more shade at the always-in-troubled one by calling him an even bigger hypocrite referencing to all the times he has gotten in trouble and the next day went online to pledge his love to his fans for believing in him, even when he was being the worst possible person to look up to.
“If you’re a 34-year-old fucking loser like me, and you go on Justin Bieber’s Twitter account like a total pervert every time that he gets in trouble, you should look at his tweets the next day. It’s always like, ‘I love you guys so much, always believe, never stop believing.’ He’s feeding them the Kool-Aid more and more,” he says. “He pours it on heavy, though. It’s so manipulative! And whoever taught him that that was OK, whoever’s watching him and is like ‘that manipulation is acceptable,’ should be really ashamed of themselves.”
