Josh Homme: 'Jay-Z Had Me Frisked Before Letting Me Play His Festival'
As NME reports, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has hit out at Jay-Z after several incidents which occurred at the rapper's Made in America Festival. Speaking with CBC radio, Homme reveals how the rapper had the band frisked before allowing them to play at the event:

"That guy's a kook, you know. He has his security frisking the bands on the way in."

Homme went on to state that he had given the security guard an ultimatum:

"I just told him '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'.”

He also criticized Jay-Z for offering the band a bottle of his own brand Ace of Spades Champagne, before then asking them to pose with it for a publicity photograph:

"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--k off."
