Black Keys Drummer Slams Michael Jackson's Xscape Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.14.2014
He says it's BS...
Patrick Carney has been making headlines with a lot of his comments lately, from renewing his feud with Justin Bieber to pranking his own record label. Carney has been making the comments while promoting the Black Keys' new album Turn Blue and he apparently isn't done yet, as he has turned his attention on the Michael Jackson posthumous album that released the same day as the band's. Carney took aim at Jackson's Xscape via Rolling Stone, calling it "bullshit."
Carney told the site, "[Xscape is] some fucking bullshit that sucks so bad that it took them three years after he died to make it listenable. Like he had to be dead for three years for it to be released."
He also stated his opinion that the album was only being released because "L.A. Reid needed a new boat." The two albums are going head-to-head in sales this week.
