Justin Bieber didn’t appreciate being shut out of the Grammys this year, and he really didn’t appreciate The Black Keys’ drummer Patrick Carney saying that he didn’t deserve recognition by the Recording Academy. Carney’s apparent diss happened on Sunday when TMZ asked him about Bieber’s lack of Grammy nominations.
“He’s rich, right?” Carney said. “Grammys are for, like, music, not for money … and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy, I guess.”
The Black Keys picked up two awards at the ceremony.
Bieber, 18, responded to Carney’s slight by throwing a Twitter tantrum. “The black keys drummer should be slapped around haha,” he wrote to his 34.3 million followers.
Carney eventually retweeted the message along with a sad face. “I need to be bare butt spanked,” he added.
