Patrick Carney Pranks Angry Bieber Fans
The Black Keys' drummer Patrick Carney has changed his Twitter name to Justin Bieber in a prank to wind up pop fans.

Many were confused when Carney's account, which already includes a 'Verified' badge, shared a fake "world premier" of a new Justin Bieber song - which instead pointed to a Devo track.

It follows Carney's comments last week in response to Bieber shunning the Grammy awards after receiving no nominations.

Angry Bieber fans quickly bombarded Carney with negative comments:

Is this a celebrity war we can all get behind? Go Carney!
