Justin Bieber is a self-professed Metallica superfan, and even posted a cover of the group's song "Fade to Black" online earlier this year. In case you caught the cover on YouTube before the video was taken down and whoever posted it was publicly crucified, Bieber mumbles some words for about 15 seconds, and somebody assumed it was a timeless Metallica cover.
Well, that someone turned out to be Lars Ulrich himself, who would like repay Bieber's for the exposure and now him and James Hetfield claim that "Are we Beliebers? Yes."
Ulrich added, "I think the kid's really talented (what?!?!) and obviously to go through what he's going through (puberty?) at that early age must be a mindfuck (please don't swear around children Lars). So the fact that he still goes out there and does it, I admire that, and I think he's super talented (again - WHAT?!?), so I guess I am kind of a Belieber." Bassist Robert Trujillo continues the Bieber lovefest, saying, "As long as he stays out of trouble, I'll be a Belieber." Kirk couldn't be reached for a comment. He was too busy learning Bieber's tablature for the next "Garage Days" album.
