Weirdest collaboration ever?
In an interview with Revolver (via NME), Corey Taylor said that he would like to perform "Psychosocial Baby" with Justin Bieber.
The song is a viral Youtube mash-up in which one fan put Slipknot's "Psychosocial" together with Justin Bieber's "Baby". The video has had over 12 million hits since it was uploaded in 2011.
Taylor said: "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... I give him respect. He's a very talented kid and he goes above and beyond for his fans. 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 to do an acoustic version of Psychosocial Baby together. But he was actually visiting children's hospitals. You can't say anything bad about a guy who's visiting children's hospitals."
For those who haven't seen it, here's the mash-up:
