Happy Fools Day: Bille Joe Armstrong Slams Meltdowns
Billie Joe Armstrong has slammed the media for calling his onstage meltdown last year a meltdown, according to reports. The Green Day singer was performing at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas when their set was apparently cut short. Armstrong took off in a profanity-laden rant that led to him checking in to rehab for alcoholism. "You're going to give me one f--king minute?' he screamed when festival organisers presented him with a countdown timer to end their set. 'You've got to be f--king kidding me! What the f--k! I'm not f--king Justin Bieber, you motherf--kers. You've got to be f--king joking!" Now Billie is allegedly furious with news sites like Ultimate Guitar for using the word 'meltdown' when trying to explain this complex turn of events in a short headline. "You're going to use one f--king word?' he said. 'You've got to be f--king kidding me! What the f--k! I'm not f--king Justin Bieber, you motherf--kers. You've got to be f--king joking!" Watch Billie's original onstage conversation with festival organisers here:
