Black Keys Drummer Reignites Bieber Beef: 'He's a F--king Moron'

As always, new album release is the perfect time for attention-grabbing insults.

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."

    attention grabbing or not bieber IS a dipshit
    yeah. But its true. Bieber is honestly an idiot, along with Cyrus. But I think they just want attention and the media eats it up so we have to deal with it.
    As much as I like Black Keys... it was a bit irresponsible and a little childish for Carney to act that way, even if Bieber did "sic" his dipshit fans on him. Be the bigger man, Patrick. (or just a male in general, in this case)
    Opinion on Bieber aside, the only time I see either Auerbach or Carney in the news is when they're shitting on someone.
    I like the Black Keys but this guy is an idiot. Even though I think beiber should die, or drop off a cliff for us all to see.
    Honestly, who cares? Patrick Carney is not a guy I'd like to have a beer with, I'd much rather have a beer with Bieber, but it's like choosing between plague and cholera.
    Just get over it dude... Insulting in interview doesn't seem to be the best thing to do... You give him credit by responding...
    The headline should read "Ultimate Guitar Decides It's Time to Reignite Carney-Bieber Beef."
    You realize, he's ASKED about this? He doesn't just bring it up. This is a Rolling Stone interview, so of course he's going to be asked the most dramatic questions.
    If you're in the position to 'reignite beef' with Justin Bieber, then maybe you're the douche, Patrick. Focus you're energy elsewhere.
    Actually, I hate to be that guy but "you're" is right in this occasion. "you are in the position..." I hate grammar nazis too btw, never thought I'd post something like this lol...
    'you're energy'
    I'm really glad someone went out of their way to correct my spelling, rather than contribute to the conversation. Now I can sleep tonight. You are the yellow Starburst of human beings.
    2 funny things about this article... 1. I do NOT like Beibers music... but its not any worst then any of the crap Black Keys puts out. I have never heard a descent song from either of them. 2. I would pay to see this turd and Beiber fight. Ill put $100 on Bebs to pound this hipster dork into the ground.
    +1 I think the Carney needs his ass kicked it may do him some good. Teach him to keep his mouth shut.
