Metallica: 'Yes, We Are Beliebers'
Metal giants Metallica recently gave young pop star Justin Bieber multiple major props, going far enough to dub themselves "Beliebers." Asked by Q magazine to comment on Bieber's recent "Fade to Black" jam and whether or not they're fans, frontman James Hetfield replied: "Are we Beliebers? Yes." Drummer Lars Ulrich chipped in, "Is it possible to have respect for him without being a Belieber?" Lars continued with JB praises, "I think the kid's really talented and obviously to go through what he's going through at that early age must be a mindf--k. So the fact that he still goes out there and does it, I admire that and I think he's super talented, so I guess I am kind of a Belieber. If he likes 'One,' and Liam Gallagher likes him, OK, there you go." Finally, bassist Rob Trujillo shared his two cents, adding (via Blabbermouth), "As long as he stays out of trouble, I'll be a Belieber." As previously reported, Bieber revealed he's a big fan of Metallica on several occasions, singling out "Fade to Black" an "One" as favorite tracks. "Those are my jams," he told GQ magazine. In another Q magazine chat, Justin gave kudos to classic hard rockers Guns N' Roses and the legendary Beatles while talking about online haters. "I would say to my haters, I love you. Thank you for supporting me by hating me. When they write messages on my YouTube page, I get money for that. So they're just giving me money to hate on me," he explained, just to switch to his musical favorites. "I like Guns N' Roses and Metallica," he added. "The Beatles. I like Metallica's 'Fade to Black' and 'One.' It's edgy and emotional with those instruments and electric guitars and stuff."
