Earlier this week, PATRICK CARNEY of the BLACK KEYS took a shot at JUSTIN BIEBER . . . basically saying that Justin doesn’t DESERVE a Grammy.
He said, quote, “Grammys are for, like, music, not for money . . . and he’s making a lot of money. Well, Justin didn’t like that. In response, he Tweeted, quote, “The Black Keys drummer should be slapped around. Haha.” Not surprisingly, Justin’s fan base attacked Patrick on Twitter.
At first, Patrick seemed annoyed . . . saying, quote, “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. :(.”
He responded to Justin’s “slapped around” comment with a frown-face . . . (CAREFUL) before adding, quote, “I need to be bare butt spanked.” He also joked, quote, “My Twitter today has turned into a virtual Claire’s Accessories.”
But then Patrick started responding to some of the haters by MOCKING THEM . . . for example, he sarcastically said “good one” when one of them called him “gay.”
And when someone said, quote, “You are some one hit wonder. [Justin] has been doing it for YEARS” . . . Patrick responded, quote, “True.” (–But it’s not . . .)
