Justin Bieber's wife has slammed Maynard James Keenan's behavior as "very childish" after the TOOL frontman reacted negatively to a news report that Justin was a fan of his band.
On Thursday (July 11),Bieber took to his Instagram account to post some of the lyrics to TOOL's "10,000 Days" track "The Pot". He then asked his followers if they knew which song the lyrics were from. "Don't look it up please I'm curious if any of you know it," he wrote. A short time after Consequence Of Sound tweeted out a link to a story headlined "It's official: Justin Bieber is a Tool fan", Keenan responded, writing "#bummer".
The TOOL singer's comment caught the attention of Bieber's wife, model Hailey Baldwin, who fired back at Keenan, writing on Twitter: "He expressed he was a fan of your music. Grew up listening to your music. You must be unhappy with yourself that you want to make people feel small who express their admiration for you. Very childish and hurtful thing to do. I hope u find security within yourself. Sad place to be"
TOOL's long-awaited new album is scheduled for release on August 30. The band has been playing two new songs, "Descending" and "Invincible", at its recent shows.
