Black Keys Drummer

Bieber Doesn't

DESERVE Grammys

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.

He's right, Grammys are for real musicians. Justin Biebhead is not a real artist.

So I guess you are an expert, and Simon Cowell is also an idiot. Really" many teenagers slice their wrist and die for "HIM" and you call other people idiots. I suppose you think Chris Brown is a better role model? The grammys are about music that lots of people listen to and like. And I suppose Taylor Swift is ok even though many teens like her pop music. Variety is the spice of life..Try It. Only idiots are close minded.

Absolutely correct. He is not Grammy worthy. He is a spoiled, overrated, pop boy-toy, period.

Being that they have already sold out their songs to commercials, they can't be hurting either. Justin is nothing stellar, but The Black Keys are also nothing earth-****tering.

It's ridiculous for someone his age (18) that has 5 # one songs not to be awarded a Grammy. Whether you like his personally or not he is already a legend , need to give ho hos props.

It really pisses me off when you guys ask people questions and put the on the spot, and then they give an answer and you throw it in their face and turn them into the next headline. If I was a celebrity, I wouldn't tell you what time it was, let alone answer any of your questions.

Justin Bieber is a ****y little ****. He isn't Grammy worthy just because millions of 13 year old girls think he's cute and buy his songs 10 times each. The fact that he had a live stream music session during the Grammys last night just shows how big of a d-bag he is. As soon as his fans grow up and he hits puberty he might be a little more humble.

Freaking hate the Black Keys, sound like a bar band trying out their "new stuff" after doing ZZ Top covers all night. Not sticking up for Biebs but screw this arty douche.

What’s wrong with the Grammy’s is that it is political, that’s why Dick Clark came out with the AMA’s to be fair to everyone. The fans should be the judge of your music, talent, or both without them no one gets a paycheck.
