Josh Homme, Queens of the Stone Age Singer, RIPS Jay Z as "Kook" Who Can "Eff Off"

by at . Comments

Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme is tearing into Jay Z regarding the rock group's treatment at his Made in America festival this summer.

Homme told CBC Radio 2's Strombo Show that Jay is a "kook" who uses extreme security practices and only gave them champagne for a photo op.

“He has his security frisking the bands on the way in," Homme said.

"I just told them, 'If you open up my bag, I’m not playing, so I guess it’s up to you whether we are playing or not.' The idea they frisked all my guys, means you’re in some different place."

"No-one has ever done that [to me]."

It got worse from there, he says.

“He also gave us some champagne and wanted us to take a photo with it,” the 40-year-old singer said. “And I thought that’s not a gift that is a marketing tool."

"So I destroyed it. Because I thought it was rude overall."

"And you shouldn’t frisk my guys, you should fuck off.”

Jay Z had yet to address Homme's comments, but the rocker's remarks stand out because much of the entertainment community is wary of criticizing him.

If the allegations are true, though, it would seem that Beyonce's better half, who has reached full-on mogul status of late, has gotten too corporate.

What do you think of his comments?


Jayz should be holding a Brillo pad in one hand to comb his hair with, and a bananana in the other. He is ugly. Beoncye must just like him for his bringin home tha dolla bills to her crib, yo!

@ Oh+Brother

Am not a fan of either but Beyonce also brings in some big bucks of her own.That was really juvenile & you did not address the article.


You tell 'em, Josh!!


Not to be racist!

@ Havanoot

When someone says "not to be racist", they say it in hopes that it will excuse their racist behaviour/comments.'re a racist you twat.

@ Tori

That's incorrect.Most people use that term when they are being sarcastic or to sum up their opinion of a distasteful comment in an offhand manner.I took this Ibrief comment as this person's awareness of the barbarism spewed by Bananana Boy.You should have raged at the obvious racist instead of drawing a conclusion on that little expression which was just that

@ lola+d.

Oh Tori.So sorry.I was scrolling slowly & did not even get to the posts below when I saw that & beaked off at you. Sometimes little quips like that can be Sarcastic but you were right to take a jab at that Loser.
As you can see, I am an insomniac & had to recharge my battery so I could get this to you A.S.A.P.That comment to you looks absolutely Insane.
Oh Brother & Havanoot, you freaking Morons.,why do you even Comment on Anything. It's all Immature B.S. because you are amazingly Stupid.Leave the space for people who can Think.
Assholes.Tori was right on about you ,Havanoot.Go Away, you Goof. good night, Tori


That black guy must have an ape as one of his parents (human and ape mated?). He is a dead on picture of a monkey. I hope his offspring doesn't look like him:( poor kid...

@ Havanoot

You are absolutely correct: he looks like a gorilla. Hoo-hoo-ha-haaaaa!

@ Havanoot

Your Absolutely Racist ..Assholes

@ WHt

Racist & a few bricks short.

Good for Josh for saying something. I'm sick of people treating like Jay-Z is untouchable. I thought of that before I clicked on this article, and lo and behold, there is another article I can click on within the text that talks about the very subject of people being "wary" or "criticizing" Jay-Z. I've always thought Beyonce and company is an unlikeable control freak (dating back to early Destiny's Child days) and Jay-Z is no prize either.

@ Kats

I also applaud Josh Homme for getting this unpleasant experience out to the Media. Everything you said rings true. This 'Power Couple' are always treated like they are 'Royalty' & why is that? Yes,they are insanely wealthy but so what? Personally, I don't like eithers' music.Some of Jay Z's is O.K, but all of his 'Genius',pretty mediocre to me.Beyonce ,yes,unlikeable and a bit of a Dolt.
All this wariness of The Carters,really weird.Hopefully Josh & his lack of Subservience will shake up their Impervious world a bit.
