Metallica — Yeah, We’re Into Justin Bieber

Breaking News 1031-metallica-james-hetfield-lars-ulrich-justin-bieber-gettyMetallica — 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
