Justin Bieber has found superstar fans in Metallica rockers James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich after the heavy rockers branded themselves "Beliebers".
The Boyfriend hitmaker and self-professed Metallica superfan posted a cover of the group's song Fade to Black online earlier this year (13), and it has caught the attention of the members of his favourite band.
When asked if the admiration was mutual, frontman Hetfield told Q magazine, "Are we Beliebers? Yes."
Drummer Ulrich adds, "I think he's super talented, so I guess I am kind of a Belieber."
And Bassist Robert Trujillo also continues the Bieber lovefest, saying, "As long as he stays out of trouble, I'll be a Belieber."
