Queens of the Stone Age played this year’s Made In America Festival. Josh Homme is the singer/guitarist in Queens of The Stone Age. Josh Homme cared not for the Made In America Festival.
When the QOTSA-frontman was being interviewed on CBC Radio 2′s “Strombo Show”, Homme decided to let anyone listening know what he really thinks of Jay Z. Pulling no punches and letting the insults fly, Homme called Jay a “kook.”
As it turns out, Homme didn’t appreciate the fact that he, Josh Homme, was asked by security to show what was in his bag. Homme stressed that in all of his years of playing festivals, he’s never been frisked. “No one’s ever done that,” he said, “you shouldn’t frisk my guys, you should fuck off,” though it seems like there should probably be another option there. He also said that he didn’t appreciate being asked to pose with a bottle of Armand de Brignac champagne, a brand which Jay Z reportedly makes money off of. Homme said, “I was like, ‘That’s not a gift– that’s a marketing tool.’ I destroyed it, ’cause I thought it was rude overall.” There is no word on how many commemorative cans of Budweiser he and the band then consumed.
