Breaking News Metallica — yes, Metallica — just professed their love and admiration for all things Justin Bieber… and they weren’t kidding … like not even a little bit.
The band was giving an interview with a rock magazine about Bieber”s recent take on their mega-hit “Fade to Black,” when lead singer James Hetfield admitted, “Are we Beliebers Yes.”
Drummer Lars Ulrich backed James up … saying, “I think the kid”s really talented and obviously to go through what he”s going through at that early age must be a mindf**k. 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.”
Bassist Robert Trujillo added “As long as he stays out of trouble, I”ll be a Belieber.”
Right … ‘cause what’s more heavy metal than staying out of trouble and making good clean pop music for the kids
