Young pop sensation Justin Bieber revealed more rockers among his all-time favorite acts. Chatting with Hollywood Reporter, Biebs named hard rock icons Led Zeppelin and nu metal veterans Korn among personal favorites, Artist Direct reports.
This isn't the first time JB is showing his fondness of guitar-heavy sound, as he gave rock community a decent stir-up after performing an improvised singing jam of Metallica's "Fade to Black" tune.
In a separate Q magazine interview, Justin revealed being a fan of more legendary rock acts - US heavy-hitters Guns N' Roses, as well as rock greats the Beatles. The singer touched on the given subject while discussing online hate he's been receiving.
"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," Biebs explained, just to focus on musical favorites. "I like Guns N' Roses and Metallica," JB 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.""
In related news, Bieber's ticket sales and prices have been on constant decline, with most experts attributing such state of affairs to Justin's recent "bad boy image."
