Justin Bieber's getting a bit feisty in his old age, ripping Patrick Carney on Tuesday after the Black Keys drummer told photogs Sunday night that the Biebs didn't deserve a Grammy.
"Grammys are for, like, music, not for money ... and he's making a lot of money," Carney told TMZ after being asked how he felt about Bieber's Grammy-nomination snub. "He should be happy."
That didn't exactly make the younger musician happy.

"the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha," Bieber tweeted Tuesday.
As of mid-afternoon, his wish had been retweeted by fans more than 36,000 times.
Bieber's had a lot to make him cranky on Grammy Sunday, when he tried to live-stream online counterprogramming of himself against the awards show, only to be thwarted by a blast of Bieber Fever shutting down the streaming service twice.
"since nothing is working and im super upset i feel i gotta make it up to u. i should post a new song on twitter so you can still be excited," he wrote.
Instead, a shirtless Bieber posted an apology video that included a snippet of some of his new music -- and a visit from his little brother and sister.
No word on any apology to the Black Keys.
