Josh Homme lackar ur

NME rapporterar att Sverigeaktuelle Josh Homme från Queens Of The Stone Age har blivit anklagad för att vara homofob - på rätt lösa grunder. Han fick en sko kastad på sig vid konserten på Norwegian Wood förra veckan och gav den skyldige en rejäl utskällning. Bland annat fick norrmannen veta att han är en "chicken fucking cunt". Tydligen innebär det att Josh är homofob...

I går svarade Homme på media och bloggvärldens rätt korkade anklagelser. Lika underhållande som alltid.

"Member of the Peanut Gallery: Some journalists and citizens on the Internet are wondering: Q? Am I a homophobe because I included a slang for gay in with other 'acceptable' curse words during a verbal lashing I gave a young concertgoer, after being hit by his shoe, during a show the other day? A= Nope. My gay family and friends, as well as myself, KNOW I am not a homophobe. For years now I've known gay is not a choice; one's skin color doesn't determine one's intelligence level; and red hair doesn't mean you're someone's stepchild. You see, it's not the words, it's their intent. I never said, nor suggested, that being gay is wrong, but apparently, based on your outrage to my flu-infused rant, you do! By that logic... I also told that young whipper snapper I'd have anal sex with him... how can I possibly reconcile these opposing viewpoints? I called him a pussy too. Does it mean I hate our one worlds' collective vagina? I never have been nor intend to be politically correct. That's your cross to bear. To me, that PC world would suck more shit than the porta-potty truck at Glastonbury. Homophobic? I'm in QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, for crissake... You say, 'So. Your band name doesn't prove anything.' Maybe not. But it's a helluva lot more definitive than the logic of some watchdog... (sorry canine-American, canine-European, canine-African, canine-Australian and canine-Asian) moralist, keeping score from pure perfectionville? If your glass house is squeegeed that clean and you need to do something, do what the great philosopher Bill Hicks once suggested — forgive me. Or don't. I'm not asking for either, OK? I think you should let both of your cheeks go loose so the stick will drop out. Either way I expect that you'll soon find another injustice from your chair, then roll to your bullhorn and point it out to the rest of us... Because you're so above it all. Or If you'll allow me to translate a wish of mine into your PC lingo: Will you please go have, consensual, sex with yourself. Pretty please with all natural, carbon offset sugar on top."

Tror snarare att det var kommentaren "Turn the fuck around you chicken shit fucking faggot!" som var anklagat för homofobi. Lite osmidigt ord att använda, men han var ju sjuk och det var mitt i stridens hetta :) Vi har transkriberat hela salvan här: blogg.aftonbladet.se/24070

Jag tycker det är skönt att han lackar ur och skäller lite på scen, vilket är rätt så kompromisslöst, men han kunde kanske varit smidigare i ordvalet.

Leo du är klok som en bok. Jag skulle inte kunna sagt det bättre själv. Skönt att han lackar ur men osmidigt ordval. Så är det.
