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.

this is an example of the condescending attitude of many in the music business to decide for us what music is or should be. these people are elitist snobs who should realize there are people who don't like his music but do like Justin's music. Furthermore he is just a drummer. Justin can do much more than that. Justin has never said a bad word about another artist-wish they would return the compliment!

ok, yes i am a "hater" which just means i have a critical or a contrary opinion to fans. saying that, the black keys have done nothing but court mainstream success. deeper still, they are spectacularly unoriginal. take an hour to a couple days to do a little backround on their "sound" and a llist of similar/better bands will start compiling in your mind. when zepplin died there was always a great white waiting in the wings. im sure they are great nice guys, but they win grammies, headline coachella, work for major label, and always try and do all it takes to claim "indie" or street cred. these guys need to embrace the machine they always wanted to be. just go to ebay and buy a vinage 70s fuzz pedal, plug it into your guitar and get your cousin to bang on some traps, and voila !!

Justin Bieber's so-called acting and singing performances on SNL were horrible. Pitiful. Childish.

Justin Bieber is NOT serious about music, he onlly cares about being popular that's all, and he is showin it. Plus, Grammys is for TALENTED artists, not someone who uses a voice enhancer and lip syncs. Jus sayin..

JB is like a high school kid trying to win a popularity contest that's all, nothing more. He is manufactured and has no talent. If he had ANY talent, he would have at least been nominated. He's only working hard at making the chip on his shoulder as big as possible.
