Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme called Jay-Z a “kook” after playing at his Made In America Festival earlier this month.
The band did a 13-song set but Homme got upset with the way he and his bandmates were treated before they went on stage.
He said: “That guy’s a kook, you know. He has his security frisking the bands on the way in. I just told this one guy, ‘if you open up my bag, then we’re not playing, so I guess it’s up to you now to decide whether I’m playing or not.’”
Homme also criticized Jay Z for apparently asking the band to pose with a bottle of his own brand of Ace of Spades champagne at the event.
He said: “I was like, ‘That’s not a gift – that’s a marketing tool.’ I destroyed it, ’cause I thought it was rude overall. You shouldn’t frisk my guys, you should f*ck off.”
No comment from Jay Z or his people.
