Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Talks About His Failed Attempt At Collaborating With Justin Bieber

Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor isn’t one to hate on Justin Bieber. Speaking in a fan q&a in the latest issue of “Revolver“, he was asked what his favorite Justin Bieber track was following this fan-made mashup video for Slipknot‘s Psychosocial” and Justin Beiber‘s “Baby“. He replied:

“I’m gonna be a whore and say it’s the “Psychosocial Baby” mashup. I know Justin wasn’t responsible for it, but I just thought it was so cool. Everybody thought I’d be pissed about it, but I was blown away. Like, who the fuck thought this would be a good idea? But I give him respect. He’s a very talented kid and he goes above and beyond for his fans.

Perfect example: I was in Baltimore on my book tour and Justin was nearby in Washington, DC. I tried to get him down to my reading because I wanted to try and do an acoustic version of “Psychosocial Baby” together. But he was actually visiting children’s hospitals. And you can’t say anything bad about a guy who’s visiting children’s hospitals, you know? If you do, you’re a fucking asshole!”

Taylor has since taken to his Facebook to comment on the fan outcry from the failed pairing, offering:

“It’s entertaining reading the comments about me and the Biebs. I think everyone needs to calm down- it’ll never happen haha -HoGaBcontinues”

    Cool.

    Am I the only one who hates Bieber bashers more than Bieber himself? The internet is littered with idiots who claim to hate him, yet can’t stop talking about him. If not for these kids, I would have no idea who Bieber even is. Still haven’t heard a note of music. Still don’t give a fuck.

      Same here. I actually expected more from his music the first time I heard it, but it’s not so bad that I feel the need to spend my time campaigning against it. Little Wayne, on the other hand… I’ve been compelled to start a movement to get him and Nicki Minaj evicted from humanity.

    Wish Taylor cared about his fans that much. Waited out in the rain for like 2 hours to meet his ass one time and he never showed. This was after he berated fans who didn’t want to hear ‘Bother’.
