Josh Homme’s 102-degree-fever-fueled tirade against a bottle-throwing concertgoer, which included the epithet “little chickenshit faggot” and threats of buggery, inspired many a comment-thread debate over whether or not Homme was a homophobe, whether or not the kid who threw the bottle was an asshole anyway, whether or not Homme is devolving into Axl Rose Mach 2.0, etc., etc. Well, Josh has responded, and not only did he take a page from one of our commenters and invoke the name of Bill Hicks, he used some really unpleasant Porta-Potty-related metaphors!
While Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme probably didn’t enjoy having a bottle thrown at him during his band’s performance at the Norwegian Wood festival in Oslo, I’m not sure it warrants throwing shit back and yelling “little chickenshit faggot! Lift him up so I can kick him in the fucking face!” while the offending teen is held by security. “I may have a fucking 102 degree temperature, been puking for three days, but I will still buttfuck you in front of all your friends.” Hot blooded!
The new Queens Of The Stone Age video, “3s & 7s,” their second for the track, finds the band replaced by Rock Band avatars considerably more skinny and twirl-prone than their human counterparts. Oddly, the previous video for the song, which attempted to swipe the Grindhouse zeitgeist, didn’t feature much more of the band (p.s. this track fucking smokes, but anyone who plays Guitar Hero III already knows that).
Everybody’s extra pissed off today, it seems. And even if Queen Of The Stone Age and working man Josh Homme lacks Morrissey’s bone-dry wit, he’s just as upset with his corporate handlers at Interscope as Moz is with the NME, railing (in all-caps, no less) against “the glorified groupie with the fucking hundred thousand dollar expense accounts” in this typically entertaining sit-down where he makes the most of the f-bomb and gives Jimmy Iovine the atomic gas face.
Queens 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:
