Homme To Osborne: Kiss My Grits

Aug 16th, 2007 // 10 Comments

hommedontplaythat.jpgQueens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme (number one hunka-hunka I most regret not including in our hottest hotties list) has joined Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson as the latest humanitarian to go after harridan, reality TV show judge, and Ozzy-enabler Sharon Osbourne for the way Osbourne (and her hubby) run Ozzfest:

In a recent interview with KTVU.com, Homme offered the following his opinion on this year’s “free” Ozzfest: “You’ll pay, and there will be only one person who will make any dough. And with the music industry the way it is with downloading, to ask artists to play for free … I might as well skip through the English countryside with a flute. One of the things about my generation is that there’s this punk rock guilt where people don’t know what they’re worth and they’re embarrassed to ask for anything for what they do. And that’s something that we need to get over. I don’t need to be the Sultan of Brunei, but at the same time, would you get your hand out of my crotchpouch please?”

Swoon! Sharon, for her part, wishes that Homme would contract a venereal disease and die. I swear I’m not just siding with Homme because I want to get a sex change in order bear his illegitimate children. I really do find Sharon Osbourne unbearably obnoxious. No word yet from Ozzy himself, or at least any intelligible words.

    I’d be willing to pay top dollar to see Homme skip around the
    countryside with a flute. YouTube just couldn’t really capture the
    sensation of being their for something like that.

    Can I get a package tour of Spoon, Malkmus, QOTSA, and Ted Leo where the bands get paid plenty but are required to perform shirtless? ShirtlessFest ’08!

  3. Sleepyhead

    Malkmus? He’s about as sexay as TMBG.

    I have a thing for scrawny smart-asses.

  5. How do I say this ... THROWDINI!

    @nonce: I’m a dude so I don’t really care in what shirt-state the bands you named perform, but I would so buy tickets for that bill.

    Easy, guys.. I put my pants on just like the rest of you – one leg at a time. Except, once my pants are on, I make gold records.

    I would also pay to see Homme skipping and fluting.

    Queens of Hide and Leather!

    @Sleepyhead: I got a good laugh out of that. Sharon is porn theater mop water-repulsive.

  9. Bazooka Tooth

    I wouldn’t mind a tour where Homme plays facemelting guitar for 9 hours straight.

    I would not mind being the lunch meat in a Josh Homme and former QOTSA bassist Nick Oliveri sandwich.

    And that quote is pretty damn awesome too!
