Justin Bieber might think he's high and mighty these days, but when it comes to Rolling Stones rock legend Keith Richards, he knows his place. The pop singer reportedly got shut down by the guitar player over the New Year holiday.

According to Us Weekly, the Biebs ran into Keith at a bar while vacationing in Turks and Caicos. Things didn't get off to a swaggy start at first.

"'Who the f**k are you?'" an insider said the rocker asked Justin when he first saw him at the beach bar. In response, the pop star shot back, "'I don't know, who the f**k are you?'"

The older dude totally appreciated his comeback and responded, "'You're a man. I respect that,' then walked away," the source added. It wasn't until a few minutes later, when "another old guy and came over and told Justin, 'Keith Richards wants to have a drink with you.'"

Bieber apparently came to and exclaimed, "Oh, s**t! That was Keith Richards?" and then went over to the Rolling Stones member's table.

"Justin tried to bro down with him," the witness said, adding that a seemingly unimpressed Keith told the Biebs, "Let's get one thing straight. You're a wannabe."

Things didn't get awkward or anything. They actually talked for awhile after that, and even swapped phone numbers. Maybe we can expect a Bieber and Rolling Stones collaboration in the future?

What do you think about Keith's reaction to meeting JB? Hilarious, right?
