Yes, I'm laughing as I type this, but this is real, and too funny not to post...

Justin Bieber

As you may have heard, the Black Keys won like four Grammys the other night and Justin Bieber wasn't even nominated. After the ceremony, a TMZ reporter annoyingly cornered Black Key Patrick Carney and asked him questions about Justin Bieber of all topics. Put on the spot, Patrick didn't do the best job of answering the questions, and kind of dissed the Biebs, and in kind of a hypocritical way, even if he didn't mean it to come out that way... as you can hear and see below..

I'm gonna unironically side with Bieber on this one.

Patrick Carney is lucky he has a job.

Yeah, Carney always seems to bash popular artists and fancy himself as some real artist. He needs to get the fuck over himself.

Don't the Black Keys license their songs away for money?

the blues is alive and well thanks to the black keys (said no real bluesmen ever)

Well somebody must have said it. Or do words now materialize out of thick air? Do they? DO THEY?!

"The Grammys are for music, not for money." That's pretty funny.

In the extraordinary event that birth equals love, should we sign our initials to nothing at all? Does the wind have a password?

I think Patrick Carney got his point across. It really doesn't matter whether Bieber won a grammy or not...

And why is May Day on April 14th? I've never understood that, Messieurs.

Did the Black Keys perform at the Grammys? I forget...

Forced to side with Team Bieber on this one

So...the Grammy's aren't about money? I have to side with Bonny Bear on this one.

That's pretty funny.

Posted by zeta | February 13, 2013 7:51 AM

Being a Canadian myself I feel compelled to defend Justin Beiber, unfortunately I can't, it's painful watching him on interviews and seeing him on SNL last weekend confirmed my suspicions that he has very little talent and is only famous due to the media and young teeny boppers that flock to him. Hopefully he'll fade away soon.

Why were the iPods not nominated? They are a band with real diversity from track to track!

If there is any justice in the world, some day the Black Keys will be rich, too!

Actually laughed at 8:15 (I)...

Don't think the Black Keys don't know what they're doing here. You can't turn on a TV without hearing one of their songs. It's a cash grab at this point.

Considering BV's setup, I actually thought this would be a lot funnier.

Bieber is a better drummer than Carney, and they both suck

The "only blue pens" comment is the real story here.

Posted by Anonymous | February 13, 2013 10:16 AM

Well, if you really analyze the tweet, Bieber added the child-like "HaHa" at the end which meant he was kidding.

Posted by Anonymous | February 13, 2013 10:32 AM

The Black Keys were more successful cutting lawns in Ohio than the shit music they put out. Dude needs to give up the Buddy Holly schtick.

Side note - The Auerbach solo LP is the tops!

Black Keys literally ARE the line between making money and making actual music.

I stopped listening to the Black Keys once they allowed one of their songs or wrote one of the songs or did something with one of their songs for one of the effing Twilight movies. Jeeeeez.

Let them feud with Bieber. There are bigger problems in the world.

Posted by Anonymous | February 13, 2013 11:19 AM

Have someone who likes songs from the Black Key's newest record listen to a song from Rubber Factory or The Big Come Up. They probably won't believe you that it's the same band and will probably dislike the earlier songs anyway. It's DBag music now.

Oh yeah The Black Keys only had to pay their dues for like 10+ years before the mainstream started to notice them and they started making money.......

You kiddies could only wish they would play your shitty bedroom,DIY, shoegaze, skrillex-wannabe tracks on commercials.

What are Chris Brown's thoughts on this?

5:48 is the most intelligent comment so far. My thoughts exactly!

the still photo for the video is hilarious. what a cunt. shut up and play music.

Posted by Anonymous | February 13, 2013 1:01 PM

I'm no fan of The Black Keys music, but I also don't think this dude needs to choose his words carefully about Justin Bieber just because his band won a few Grammy's and he's now a "player" in the music business.

Posted by Anonymous | February 13, 2013 1:19 PM

I guess if you're not from NYC, most of the idiots that comment here hate you. Unreal.

The Black Keys spent a lot of years touring in that van before they ever got at all popular and started making any money.

But, I'm sure the Biebster paid his dues...maybe one of you geniuses can provide some details.

BV being a little easy on the Keys, ugh? Being partial isn't becoming. He should have kept his mouth shut and he didn't. No reason to drag cool vs. uncool into this.
