Metallica have pledged allegiance to boy Satan.
The ne’er-do-wells at Q asked the four members of Metallica if they were “Beliebers” now that pop singer Justin Bieber has publicly claimed he digs their music. Knowing an answer one way or the other was likely a dumb move, James Hetfield deferred to Lars Ulrich.
“Is it possible to have respect for him without being a Belieber? I think the kid’s really talented and obviously to go through what he’s going through at that early age must be a mindfuck. So the fact that he still goes out there and does it, I admire that and I think he’s super talented, so I guess I am kind of a Belieber.”
“If he likes ‘One,’ and Liam Gallagher likes him, OK, there you go,” Lars enthused.
Added bassist Robert Trujillo added: “As long as he stays out of trouble, I’ll be a Belieber.”
Wave goodbye, folks. Wave goodbye to the last little bit of respect I had for the band.
