The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney and Justin Bieber got into it with each other at the Grammys. When asked what Carney thought about Bieber's lack of Grammy Nominations, Carney replied "Grammy's are for music, not for money. He's making a lot of money. He should be happy, I guess."
First of all, why the hell is anyone asking the Black Keys about Justin Bieber? What world do we live in where this makes sense?
Instead of counting all his money Bieber turned bratty and tweeted this to his 34 bazillion fans:
the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha

Note that the tweet above was favorited more than 37,000 times, and retweeted nearly 60,000 times. I have no way of knowing for sure, but I am willing to bet that the number of retweets is more than the number of sales of the first Black Keys Album The Big Come Up when it was released in 2002.
You know, a full five years before Bieber was discovered by accident on Youtube. (If only that day turned out differently.)
The Bieber fans for their part, turned frothy-mouthed insane. As is the case. But you can't keep a Black Key down. Carney decided in a fit of awesome inspiration to pull the ultimate troll prank, by changing his twitter name to Justin Bieber, enraging and confusing the so-called Beliebers, with his dead on impression. The reactions from his fans are as priceless as Carney/Bieber's rejoinders. See below.
Carney rules hard. Now, lead singer, Dan Auerbach: It's your turn. I suggest you become Taylor Swift on Twitter now.
UPDATE: Patrick Carney is back to himself. Sigh. It couldn't last forever.
Only thing I remember from being Bieber is that I was really thirsty the whole time.
