Justin Bieber isn’t having a good week. After failing to earn a Grammy nod, the Biebs decided to host a live webcast simultaneously with the awards show, where he promised to debut new music. However, his rabid fan base quickly caused Livestream to go over capacity, prohibiting Bieber from entering his own room. He was so frustrated he took off his shirt.
Fast forward to later Sunday night. On the heels of his multiple Grammy victories, The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney was stalked by a TMZ reporter as he made his way to an after party. The TMZ reporter asked Carney his thoughts on Bieber’s Grammy snub, for which Carney responded: “He’s rich, right? Grammys are for like music, not for money … and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”
Carney would later follow up his comments on Twitter, writing “It’s cool when you get cornered outside your hotel by a guy with a camera and they ask you a dumb question and then put it on TV.”
However, that didn’t stop Bieber from telling his 34 million followers on Twitter today that “the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha.” It’s nice to know those positive influences are rubbing off on him.
