"I know Justin wasn't responsible for it [the mashup], but I just thought it was so cool. Everybody thought I'd be p--sed 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, D.C. 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."

The unlikely fan of a recent mashup
between Justin Bieber
's "Baby" and Slipknot
's "Psychosocial" is the rock band's frontman Corey Taylor
! Though most expected Taylor to detest the fan-created collaboration, NME reports
he told Revolver
magazine that he'd love to make the mashup into a reality. The collaboration entitled "Psychosocial Baby"
was uploaded to YouTube back in 2011 and has since had over 12 million hits. Fingers crossed that Bieber responds to the offer!
