While some, like Scooter Braun, were outraged over Justin Bieber‘s lack of a nomination at the 2013 Grammy Awards, others were not as surprised. In fact, some might even say the 18-year-old’s not deserving of one of the coveted honors. One such person being Patrick Carney, the drummer from The Black Keys.

On the night of the Grammys, the rock band cleaned house, snagging wins for Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Album and Best R&B Album. After the ceremony, the group was swarmed by fans and media outlets. And when Patrick was asked if Justin should feel snubbed for his non-recognition, the rocker responds with a simple, “He’s rich, right? […] Grammys are for, like, music; not for money… and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”

However, Justin, who spent the earlier part of his weekend cracking jokes and performing on Saturday Night Live, was not too pleased with the jab. Once he learned of the insult, he turned to Twitter, tweeting:

Now comes the part where you chime in. It would be easy to say you’re Team Bieber all the way, but really think of the situation. Do you think Patrick Carney has a point and Justin should revel in his riches? Or do you believe the Biebs was deserving of a nomination at the Grammys for BELIEVE? And what do you think of JB’s comeback? Tell us your opinions in the comments below or on our Justin Bieber message board!
