Patrick Carney Tells Rollingstone: ‘Justin Bieber is Manipulative and Fu**ing Irresponsible A-hole’

Justin-Bieber-Patrick-Carney-fight

The Black Keys’ drummer Patrick Carney calling Justin Bieber “fu**ing irresponsible a$*hole” in a new issue of Rollingstone magazine May 9th.

Justin Bieber, like a f**king irresponsible a$*hole, sicced 40 million Twitter followers on me because I paid him a compliment he didn’t understand. I’m saying that he should be grateful that he has a fucking career in music. And he shouldn’t be fucking telling his followers to slap me, and then also be doing anti-bullying bullshit. It’s so irresponsible.

I just started getting called a faggot, you know? All these kids who don’t know what they’re saying are saying all of these things that are actually wildly inappropriate. And these kids are just dumbasses.

I mean, Justin Bieber is a f**king moron. And that’s the gist of what I was saying. And then he goes and says I should be slapped? Honestly, I feel bad for him. Every single person who works with him should fucking be embarrassed that they don’t. . . No one is doing him any favors, you know? And honestly, I don’t dislike his music. I don’t listen to his music, but he needs to not conduct himself that way. Like, really, you make millions of dollars playing music, you should feel fucking lucky.

If you’re a 34-year-old f**king loser like me, and you go on Justin Bieber’s Twitter account like a total pervert every time that he gets in trouble, you should look at his tweets the next day. It’s always like, “I love you guys so much, always believe, never stop believing.” He’s feeding them the Kool-Aid more and more. He pours it on heavy, though. It’s so manipulative! And whoever taught him that that was OK, whoever’s watching him and is like that manipulation is acceptable, should be really ashamed of themselves.

In case you don’t remember, last year, after the Black Keys won four Grammys, a TMZ reporter asked drummer Patrick Carney if he was upset that Justin Bieber wasn’t up for any awards. Carney answered: “He’s rich, right? I mean, I don’t know. Grammys are, like, for music, not for money, and he’s making a lot of money. I don’t know — he should be happy, I guess.”

Thus began the Great Black Keys – Beliebers War Of 2013. The next day, Justin tweeted “the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha” and of course it only escalated from there. As Beliebers retaliated with some mean words, Carney fired back by changing his Twitter name to Justin Bieber.

  • S

    It was obviously a joke and justin would love to win a Grammy like isn’t that what All artists want?jeesh

  • Lailani

    Wow, is he serious.

  • Lailani

    Justin is like way hotter then he is.

  • Lailani

    Justin is like way hotter then that Patrick guy.

  • Justin’s Belieber

    i hate the black keys drummer now. Who does he think he is when he’s saying that about justin? he’s now another guy i hate. That guy has no room to talk. He’s just another jerk. And i agree with the tweet that justin tweeted. I bet justin would have loved to win a grammy award. The black keys drummer was very disrespectful when he said that about justin. If he’s gonna be so hurtful and rude like that then he can shut his mouth. Does he want us beliebers to attack him on twitter? i wouldn’t be afraid to do that. I’m always gonna stick up for my idol. But seriously, that just made me mad. I want to hurt the black keys drummer.

    • Birk

      He deserved it, what he said about Justin that he should be happy to make money, and he is not talented enough to win or be nominated for a Grammy was disrespectful. The thing is that Justin was nominated for 2 Grammy’s in 2011 for his first album My World 2.0 and lost both, so it’s not like he has never been nominated before. Justin will win a Grammy eventually.

      • Sophia

        Last time I checked, Carney didn’t say Bieber isn’t talented enough to be nominated for a Grammy. Did you know that the album that they were nominated for that year was all written and composed by Dan Auerbach, Patrick Carney and Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton? They worked hard for that album & they deserved it. Plus, their songs actually have a decent meaning. And if you look at it closer, Carney only said that because Bieber was still a new artist. A Grammy is probably one of the most prestigious award. Bieber has yet to prove that he deserves it. And seeing Bieber’s most recent album, I’m not quite sure if he’ll win a Grammy. It looks like that album was actually a flop. And the songs are mostly about sex, girls, heartbreak & partying. There is nothing that sets him apart from the mainstream artists. And his voice is so nasal.

      • Birk

        @Sophia.. If you are referring to “Journals” which was a 2 week digital only release that was only available on iTunes for those two weeks, it did very well considering it was not sold in stores anywhere in the world. “Believe” & “Believe Acoustic” were Justin’s recent full length albums and both of those hit #1. Patrick Carney insinuated that Justin Bieber was not nominated because the Grammy’s are for music, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out exactly what he meant by the remark.

  • Smilesometimes

    Justin is hotter, and he’s talking about bullying, what does he think he’s doing right now to justin

  • m l

    patrick carney must have been looking in the mirror when he composed his remarks to rolling stone. he has a sickness and should be pittied. beliebers should send him twitters of condolence for his affliction. learn to use words effectively.

  • Birk

    Justin Bieber does not nor has he ever manipulated his fans, those Beliebers who were with him from the beginning and are still with him now have gone through years of attacks on Justin every since he first signed his first record contract at 14 years old, and we have heard and seen it all these past 6 years from bullying, from two paternity claims against him when he was only 16 which were proven to be bogus and years of other allegations, lies and rumors. We are sick and tired of assholes like this badmouthing Justin for his success.. Jealousy is the reason behind idiots like this mouthing off. I noticed he brought up money, what a surprise! Justin knows that his Beliebers are the reason that he is so successful and he is grateful for their support and always thanks them because we are the only ones he answers to and will listen to. People like this just don’t get it!

  • ivan

    Simon Cal would disagree with this nerd that Justin should not have gotten a Grammy; Carly Jepsen won it but where is she now? this guy is another attention wanting nerd like the the others. Most people in the street don’t even know who he is; but they know Justin.

  • Lailani

    Justin is amazing

  • Hannah Bieber

    Wow… he needs to shut up bcuzz he doesn’t know Justin at all and he doesn’t know what hes talking about. Justin is happy. We make him happy all the time and Justin works hard everyday making new music and making us proud.hes staying strong from all the hate he gets. Who is he to say he doesnt deserve a grammy -.- hes just jealous bcuzz of how amazing our fanbase is

  • summer

    I seriously don’t understand this Patrick guy. First of all, that happened a LONG time ago. You need to move on, and understand that he’s not the same anymore and he meant is a joke. People just tend to judge him by what he has done and said, forgetting who he actually is. Sure, that was kind of wrong thing to say, but it happened and you shouldn’t hate him for that. Justin was just obviously implying that he would like to have a grammy, since it’s been his dream for a longer while.

    • summer

      *meant it as a joke

    • Sophia

      I don’t think that happened a ‘LONG’ time ago because it only happened last year. Sure, he meant it as a joke. But you know what? Up to this time, he’s been attacked by you butthurt beliebers and knowing how this fanbase works, I’m pretty sure he got a lot of death threats as well. Remember the time he publicly humiliated a belieber for her comment that had nothing to do with what her comment actually meant? He posted it on Instagram with his own caption and got that girl bullied and sent a shit ton of hate. It doesn’t matter, yes, it’s been said and done. But the after effects, the hate Carney has gotten for expressing his opinion over the years. But do you think he deserves it? A Grammy is one of the most prestigious awards. And looking at his most recent album, I’m not quite sure if he’ll get one if he continues on writing songs like that.

      • stringbiebs

        The songs from Journals were fine and he didn’t even do those for awards, they were for his fans and Selena to show how he was FEELING and that’s how music should be about, FEELINGS not preppy bullshit about how the world is perfect or you get all the money and girls. Life is about heartbreak and tough times and having fun that’s what Justin’s music is all about (more now then ever)

      • Bre

        What artist doesn’t get death threats I think that he should be mature enough to not get butthurt about beliebers comments…

      • Sophia

        (stringbiebs) Sure, he didn’t do that for awards but I’m pretty sure that artists produce albums not only for their fans but fro awards and recognition. Well, that’s funny, knowing that the tracks under Journals, most of the tracks had more than 3 people helping him compose them. If they were really about his ‘FEELINGS’ towards his fans & Selena, wouldn’t it be more suitable to know that he actually spent time thinking of the lyrics and how they meant to him rather than paying composers to do it for him? It doesn’t need to be those kind of songs, it could be about motivating & inspiring. Remember that, 90% of his fans are about 15 years old and younger. I’m pretty sure that they have not experienced heart break, partying & sex at that age. He lost focus on the main point why people were attracted to his songs which is believing in yourself. His songs matured way too fast.

      • Sophia

        Artists that have never expressed their opinions on Justin Bieber & One Direction. Oh, we’re talking about being butthurt? I’m pretty sure it’s YOU BELIEBERS who have to stop being butthurt. Getting all apeshit once you hear someone say negative about your god (yes, it’s quite obvious that you beliebers treat Justin Bieber like your god) or once Justin Bieber notices another belieber. You beliebers have to learn to accept everyone’s opinion whether it’s positive or negative.

      • Birk

        Well then, you noticed that it is Patrick Carney who is still to this day holding a grudge and Justin Bieber has taken the high road and moved on. “Journals” actually got Justin Bieber some of the best reviews of his entire career and actually gained him more mature fans who like his new R&B music direction, these same new fans can’t stand his older pop music, but like his more mature sound. We will see what happens when the new full length album Justin is recording is released.

      • Birk

        Justin Bieber is growing up, so is his original Beliebers who are the same age or slightly older than he is. Of course his music is going to change because he is not that same 15 yr old who sang “Baby”. Sophia you have to realize that! There are still some people who think that Justin only sings those kind of pop songs still, and the only way to change their views about his music if for Justin to make more mature music like the R&B he is now into. Mature fans were fine with his new music and many of those bought their first Justin Bieber album ever with “Journals”. So he sang about sex, and other mature themes, that is what people his age, older and even younger are experiencing. He cant’ stay 15 yrs old forever just so people like you can feel happy.

      • Sophia

        Birk, Let me make it clear, Rolling Stone brought that question up not Carney. Carney didn’t blatantly express his distaste over Bieber. Carney was asked a question, he simply gave his full & honest answer. For which, I would like to thank him and unfortunately, agree with him. I do realize that. But his songs are maturing way too fast, maybe if he was about 24 or older, I would understand him singing about sex but at this young age? I don’t think that’s proper. Wait, people his age, older or younger are experiencing sex, heartbreak, girls, etc? I beg to differ. People his age or younger are currently studying or working to make a living. I’m not asking him to stay 15 years old. He can do whatever the heck he wants with his music but my point here is that singing about sex etc are just way too fast. Especially when he has younger fans. What I’m asking for him to do is to tone it down a bit and don’t rush adulthood. It would be much more appropriate for him to sing more songs about believing in your dreams or other inspirational themes which I doubt will happen knowing that he has a song with the lyrics “Are you ready to turn up”. I could name 5 or more artists who write their own songs with little to no help from composers, who write songs most to all of their fans can relate to, who are older than him, and who sing way better than him. I’m not a bieber fan and I will never be but I just hope he can be a little more conscious that our youth is idolizing him. I clearly know that he’s not to blame for all his terrible decisions knowing the kind of people he’s surrounded with and the amount of money he has.

  • ALEKSANDER

    Patrick Carney’s envious & crass jerk !

  • #EMMA♥BIEBERxox

    Let the haters hate and
    Let the #BELIEBERS Believe
    Just ignore that wierd nerdy lookin guy
    Im happy whatever names the kids called you and NERD you dont call us dumbasses or ill come over there and stick one of ur drum sticks up your h…….
    DONT MESS WITH US!!!!!

  • ivan

    These celebrities are envious at the fact Justin gets far more attention than they do. They don’t like a rich good looking kid whose music they don’t like to be that popular.

  • Nicki

    Seriously, that Patrick guy don’t know who he messing with. He is an a**hole. :|

  • stringbiebs

    Justin doesn’t even care about getting a Grammy, seriously it’s just an award, it doesn’t define talent. There are LOADS of very successful and loved artists who never won a Grammy, like Jimmy Hendrix. Yes Justin has money but that isn’t happiness, Justin is doing so much better. Yes, Justin meant it as a joke and SOME STUPID fans sent things to Patrick. Point is awards aren’t important and past is the past and if someone has a problem with Justin they should tell HIM or just let it go, if you love what your doing then what there do doesn’t matter.

    • Lailani

      No one cares about Jimmy Hendrix.

  • Bre

    So if this guy is a 30 something year old guy why can’t he be the mature one…. If he doesn’t like something justin bieber did why does he feel he needs to shrink to the age of 20 to fire back… That carney guy is not an adult he’s an immature teenager who feels the need to cuss about JB ….stupid guy….we’re not morons I hate when beliebers are called names ….were a fan base who believes and cares about justin bieber so when he attacks we are like a family and we all attack ….he probably doesn’t have a family fan base so he doesn’t know what he’s talking about

    • Lailani

      Ok.

  • Lailani

    This is ridiculous. Let’s just m*sturb*te over Justin’s d*ck.

  • Belieber

    u f*ckin’ serious? patrick carney needs to get over himself and leave justin the f*ck alone. He already bashed him a while ago, he needs to stop. Justin doesn’t give a f*ck what people think or say about him.

  • Luigi Severus Fletcher-Bieber-Horan-Tomlinson

    Another clueless hater who knows absolutely nothing…
    Kinda creepy how he is a grown ass man and Justin is 20.

  • Luigi Severus Fletcher-Bieber-Horan-Tomlinson

    Why is it always irrelevant, c-list celebs hate on Justin?

    • Sophia

      It’s funny how you have the nerve to label Patrick Carney as an ‘irrelevant, c-list’ when in fact, his band, The Black Keys won 3 Grammys for their album, El Camino of which Carney was one of the writers and composers of the tracks in that album.

  • munas

    Who is this idiot?

  • Janie

    for all Patrick knows it could be a joke. to me he thinks Justin is a joke, why not embrace being a joke? say a dumbass comment get a dumbass reply. like hes a grown man and its immature for him to say that about another artist. but it was also immature of Justin to retaliate.

    • Sophia

      Oh, so when someone says something negative about Bieber, it’s bullying/hating but when your precious Justin says someone needs to be slapped around, it’s considered a joke? Your logic should be given an award! Carney was asked a question & he gave his honest (and true) answer in the most respectful manner he can. Bieber then replied with an immature and unnecessary suggestion of violence, knowing that he has whole mindless army whose reaction will be to engage in the kind of harassment and bullying he claims to oppose. As vulgar as it sounds, Carney was totally right about his answer in the interview. Carney received tons of hate ever since expressing his honest opinion which is really disappointing. Bieber preaches to stop bullying or spreading hate yet he doesn’t take responsibility to tell his fans to stop sending hate & death threats to the people who have said negative things about him. Our humanity will soon be flushed down the drain knowing that there are ton of people who act & think like you.

  • hayet22

    This is turning to be such an everyday event each day someone pops up says whatever he thinks of justin than we the beliebers jump on board to defend him And u know too much of the thing is never good so we are doing that so much often that people are setting a stereotype for this action, we are called a butthurt beers whenever we’re sticking up for him even if we had the right to do so

  • hayet22

    I think we have the right to hate on whoever hates on justin but we don’t need to be super expressive about it if we don’t want people to be expressive about their hate to justin I mean his comment was just a few words printed didn’t kill anyone or brought anyone to life

  • dialyn ortega

    who he think he is to say that???!!!
