Justin Bieber responded to the Black Keys' drummer's diss in a tweet, suggesting Patrick Carney be "slapped around."
While Bieber was failing in his attempt to hijack Grammy viewers, the Black Keys were busy picking up three awards. In a post-award show interview with TMZ, Keys drummer Carney weighed in on Bieber's lack of a nomination, telling the website, "He's rich, right? Grammy's are for music, not for money. He's making a lot of money. He should be happy, I guess."
the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha

For his part, Carney seems to be regretting his comments to TMZ, which makes sense given that dissing Bieber isn't good for anyone who doesn't want to be bombarded with angry messages from the pop star's army of fans.
"It's cool when you get cornered outside your hotel by a guy with a camera and they ask you a dumb question and then put it on TV," he tweeted to his 91,000 followers, and later responded to Bieber's tweet with a sad face.
