The Mayan calendar must just have been off by a few weeks, because this is totally the apocalypse! Hipsters and Beliebers are in an all-out war as Justin Bieber and Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney share a heated post-Grammy exchange.
“He’s rich, right?” said Carney when asked for his opinion on Bieber’s Grammy snub. “Grammys are for, like, music, not for money…and he’s making a lot of money.” Ooooh, burn… Here’s what Justin had to say in response:

Clearly, both parties have a lot to be happy about. Justin Bieber could build an army of fans bigger than most, and The Black Keys just cleaned up at the 55th Grammys. But who wins when it comes to charity work? Let’s see…
+ The Black Keys Care About Global Poverty
Last summer, The Black Keys played a free NYC show for 60,000 people to raise money and awareness for the Global Poverty Project’s campaign to end poverty around the world. Neil Young, K’naan, The Foo Fighters, and Crazy Horse, were also present for the epic musical event. The Black Keys always find ways to incorporate
vintage jackets charity into their live shows. They’ve paired up with Tickets-For-Charity to donate sales of some of the best seats in the house to Community Support Services in Akron, Ohio, and the W.O. Smith Music School in Nashville, Tennessee.
+ Justin Bieber Cares About Global Education
Justin Bieber is rich, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about the less fortunate. Justin is a huge supporter of Pencils of Promise. “There’s an organization I really believe in called Pencils of Promise,” Justin said in a video promoting the charity. “They build schools all around the world for children who don’t have access to a quality education.” The Biebz has also donated a portion of ticket sales from tours to help afterdisasters, like Hurricane Sandy.
