Jay Z is being slammed by Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme for his band’s treatment at Hov’s Made in America Festival during Labor Day weekend. The festival featured Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Nine Inch Nails and others, but Homme says his band almost didn’t make it inside the venue because of the rapper.
“He has his security frisking the bands on the way in,” Homme said in a radio interview. “I just told them, ‘If you open up my bag, I’m not playing, so I guess it’s up to you whether we are 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 also claims that Jay is fraud that staged photo ops. “He also gave us some champagne and wanted us to take a photo with it,” the 40-year-old singer said. “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 fuck off.”
This isn’t the first time Jay has been the target of a rocker’s criticism. Back in 2008, he riled the feather’s of Oasis singer Noel Gallagher who claimed Hov should not have headlined Glastonbury that year. Jay responded to the singer’s hate by opening his set with a cover of Oasis’ hit song, “Wonderwall.”

Who’s Really Delusional? Charlamagne Can’t Quite Comprehend Amara La Negra’s Colorism Issues
This is uncomfortable to watch.
Love & Hip Hop Miami star Amara La Negra stopped by The Breakfast Club for a chat about her life, career and experience with colorism. Unfortunately, the interview started of awkwardly when Charlamagne’s first questions was, “What are you?” You see, for whatever reason, the radio host was confused about La Negra’s Afro-Latina heritage. And while there’s nothing wrong with an honesty inquiry, it was the way he asked the question that was off-putting. But, it didn’t stop there.
Charlamange, along to co-host, DJ Envy, repeatedly asked the reality star what was her “struggle”, ignorantly assuming that colorism isn’t a thing anymore because of all the advancements in the entertainment industry that have occurred. Yet, and still, you don’t see artist of Amara’s hue celebrated on any Latina platform such as Univision or Telemundo. The host, with the exception of Angela Yee, then proceeded to deduce Amara’s issue to being a problem that’s “all in (her) head”, even referencing the success of Cardi B. as evidence of La Negra’s delusion. You have to watch this to believe it…
