Black Keys Drummer

Bieber Doesn't

DESERVE Grammys

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber has no business winning Grammys -- at least according to a guy who cleaned up at the award show last night ... Patrick Carney from The Black Keys.

Patrick was swarmed by fans outside Chateau Marmont when we asked if Bieber should feel snubbed -- seeing as how he didn't get a single Grammy nomination this year -- and he simply said, "He's rich, right?"

Then the Keys' drummer threw a major jab, adding ... "Grammys are for like music, not for money ... and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy."

He might have a point -- Justin's never won a Grammy, and does seem pretty happy ... with his Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and such.

The Black Keys took home 4 Grammys last night -- and probably aren't hurting in the money department either.

By the way, you gotta hear what Patrick has planned for his riches.

Yes he does. JB is a very talented young man. Do not upset his hormonal gurl army for they are a force to be reckoned with <3 Celebrate him for the clock is ticking away that pubescence boyish charm that enthralls all the little femittes around the world.

"Grammy's are for like music, not for money....."


With, The True and Living Yahweh, as My Witness:
On February 14, 1995, already armed with high critical and public-acclaim, Hip-Hop visionary (and suspiciously unsigned artist) The Gangsta of Love
unveiled "Don't Jack wit Love", on L.A.'s legendary morning-show "John London and The HouseParty"/92.3 The Beat. Described by one music-critic, as "..as smooth, lush, ballad....imagine a harder-edged Babyface, and you've got the idea.." Approximately seven-months laters, after years without a "Hit-record", "rapper" LL Cool (with BoyzIIMen) released "Hey Lover" - a shameless and undeniable rip-off from "Don't Jack Wit Love".
Cool J would "win" his only "Grammy" for "his"
song.

There is a groundswell insurrection forming against artists absolutely dependent on auto-tune/Melodyne for their pitch. Beiber, Beyonce, Urban... the list is legion. Fully 85% of today's artists have no sense of pitch whatsoever. They create a vocal sound, and the engineer tunes and refines it. Engineers, who make up many of the Grammy judges, are rebelling against this, just as they are rebelling against record companies' loudness wars. The rebellion is a good thing; pop music desperately needs it.

I think Justin Beiber is a very talented young man, and who are the Black keys? Original on the name. I know Justin also plays more than one instument, how about Patrick Carney? and how many albums and #1 songs do you have. I am not a little groupie but I have enjoyed Beibers music. He has earned it, and Patrick do you only want money or to be recognized for your NEW Talent? And who are you to judge anyway?

Bieber is a good "performer" - not a good musician. Yeah, he's okay at dancing, has some stage presence, a mediocre voice that's helped out by sound engineers, and a legion of tweens. Mavis Staples exudes more talent, range and soul while singing "YEAH, YEAH, YEAH...!!!!"

Who knows, maybe one day Bieber can get out of puberty and actually reach a high note before having his voice crack out on him. The same goes for Chris Brown - excellent dancer, but he can't sing at all! I want to listen to music that isn't heavily aided by sound engineers. Plus, he's a jerk.

One more thing, I hate to say it, but Justin Timberlake is actually talented. He's got excellent pitch and presence...even if he's originally from a boy band. I'm not a fan, but I will admit that he's talented.

LOVE THE BLACK KEYS! Was so happy for them last night - and he is 100% right, Justin hasn't done anything to earn a Grammy. Making teenagers slice their wrists and "die" for him does not = grammy. His music is terrible teeny bopper crap and he is now trying to "thug up". It's simply gross.
