Queens of the Stone Age's occasionally acerbic frontman Josh Homme has spoken candidly about rap mogul Jay Z in an interview with Canadian radio station CBC Radio's 'Strombo Show'.
Homme spent time in Jay Z's company when his band played Jay Z's recent Made In America Festival and said that he felt entirely out of place and said that Jay Z's security were unnecessarily rough.
"That guy's a kook, you know", Homme said in reference to Hova. "He has his security frisking bands on the way in. I just told them 'if you open my bag I'm not playing, so I guess it's up to you whether we're 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]."
Homme continued by saying he felt that Jay Z was entirely disingenuous by how he treated the other bands playing the festival.
"He also gave us some champagne and wanted us to take a photo with it", Homme continued. "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 f*ck off."
Queens of the Stone Age will play The O2 in Dublin on November 17th. Tickets are on sale now.
