As the Black Keys released their new studio effort "Turn Blue" yesterday (May 12), drummer Patrick Carney figured that the time is just about right to reignite the old attention-grabbing feud with Justin Bieber.
Patrick looked back at February 2013 beef, calling JB a "f--king irresponsible a--hole."
"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," the drummer told Rolling Stone. "I'm saying that he should be grateful that he has a f--king career in music. And he shouldn't be f--king telling his followers to slap me, and then also be doing anti-bullying bulls--t. It's so irresponsible."
Patrick continued, "I just started getting called a f-ggot, 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 dumba--es.
"I mean, Justin Bieber is a f--king moron," Carney continued his lengthy rant. "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 f--king 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 f--king lucky."
Finally reaching conclusion, the drummer added, "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."
