Josh Homme Hates Hugs
So Queens of the Stone age were performing in St. Petersburg, FL, last week, when a fan leapt onto the stage and tried to give his rockstar hero, Josh Homme, a hug.
It didn’t go so well for him.
In case you can’t understand what Homme is saying, here’s a helpful transcription, courtesy of The PRP:
“Don’t do that, because I’ll fucking… I don’t care if you love me. You can stay right there dude. I don’t know what you’re trying to do. You’re lucky I didn’t fuck you up bro. I’m here to play for you, not jerk you off, you fucking douchebag.”
“Cause we’re going to be together right? That motherfucker doesn’t know what we’re talking about. We’re talking about being together, I want to play it for, I want to show you something, I want to be together, you know? I wanna… I want to do something together, but I don’t want this asshole to be up on the stage… Fuck that guy. Long live us, but fuck this guy.”
I’m of two minds about this. I think if you get up on stage uninvited, you just dive off immediately, and, yeah, touching the performers probably isn’t a good idea, either (especially in the post-Dimebag era).
That being said, Homme is a rock star and should be used to his fans fawning over him, and, frankly, I think he overreacted. Even if this fan made an error in judgment, it wasn’t so grievous as to make him a “fucking douchebag.” I mean, you know who gets THIS upset when one of members of the unwashed masses dares to touch him? Fred Durst. So, yeah, great company to keep.
Also, “You’re lucky I didn’t fuck you up, bro!” is the kind of phrase used exclusively by fucking douchebags. Just sayin’.
