(Los Angeles Times)- 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.

But this may not be as bad as the time a picture of Bieber supposedly fondling a female fan surfaced.

It seems as though ever since his breakup with pop star Selena Gomez, the Biebs has been on a bit of a downward spiral.

Including the time he was photographed smoking pot. So what’s next?
