Keith Richards Was Not Impressed With “Wannabe” Justin Bieber

Legendary rocker Keith Richards and skateboard enthusiast Justin Bieber reportedly spent some time together this past New Year’s and apparently Keef wasn’t too impressed with the platinum-haired pop star, labelling him a “wannabe”.

Paper of record US Weekly reports, Richards and Bieber were both holidaying in the Turks and Caicos Islands and happened to show up at the same small beach bar. According to one source, “there was an old guy throwing back drinks who said, ‘Who the f**k are you?’” when the Biebs sashayed into the premises.

The grown-up pop star then retorted, “I don’t know, who the f**k are you?”, says the source. Apparently this amused the 71-year-old Rolling Stones rocker, who later invited his 20-year-old foe round his table for some drinks. It was then that Bieber reportedly learned that the “old guy” was in fact Keith Richards.

“Justin tried to bro down with him,” another witness told the publication, before adding that a seemingly “unimpressed” Richards told the pop star, “Let’s get one thing straight. You’re a wannabe.” According to the first source though, the two actually had a long talk, after which they “swapped numbers” so they could keep in touch.

Justin, apparently, called it “the best night ever.”
