The epic battle between Justin Bieber and Patrick Carney, drummer for the Black Keys, continues. Carney is not making any friends with Beliebers on Twitter, after changing his profile’s name to “Justin Bieber,” with that trusty little check mark to show he’s verified.
He’s not saying he’s Bieber, but rather he’s the “Justin Bieber DOS virtual buddy.” Bieber fans unleashed the expected Twitter assault on Carney, insulting him and his band. Carney is staying in character, calling people “bro” and referring to himself as Justin.
The whole feud, if you can call it that, started when Bieber wasn’t nominated for any Grammys. When someone with a camera found Carney after the awards show, where the Black Keys won three, and asked him what he thought of Bieber being shut out. Carney replied, “Grammys are for like music, not for money … and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”
Bieber was already in a sour mood after the video chat he tried to set up during the Grammys failed. So, it wasn’t entirely surprising when he responded on Twitter, saying “the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha.” Oh, that Bieber.
This is surely going to lead to the worst diss track in music history.
