The Grammys Won’t Stop Justin Bieber From Fighting With Patrick Carney Of The Black Keys

Justin Bieber and Patrick Carney of the Black Keys Have Beef

The Grammy Awards created some unexpected pairings and delivered even more surprising interactions.

(The latter, me thinks.) Is he maybe kind of attractive with those sparkling blue eyes? (Yes.) Is he completely and utterly ridiculous in the best way possible? (Also yes.)
