Patrick Carney on Justin Bieber's lack of Grammys: 'He's making a lot of money. He should be happy'
One person not upset about the Justin Bieber Grammys “snub”? Patrick Carney of The Black Keys.
“Grammys are for like music, not for money … and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy,” Carney told TMZ,
This isn’t the first time Carney has taken a swipe at another celebrity. After last year’s Grammys, Carney told EW, “We walked the red carpet, and I just remember everyone pushing us out of the way so that Kim Kardashian and Snooki could get through. It became pretty obvious that it wasn’t so much about the music as it was about the famous people. It was a little bit gross.”
For now, Bieber has taken to the thing he does dominate, Twitter, to issue a response: “the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha.” Comments like this probably don’t help him shed the “Baby” image.
