Joe Rogan and Tom Segura discussed Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme kicking photographer Chelsea Lauren during a December 2017 live performance on a new Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Alternative Nation transcribed their comments.
Joe Rogan: Did you see that thing with Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age? Kicking somebody in the face?
Tom Segura: Oh yes, the photographer
Joe: What in the fuck was going on
Tom: Apparently the later story was that her flash was really fucking bothering everybody.
Joe: Oh was it?
Tom: She wasn’t supposed to have a flash going, but that was not okay the way that shit went down man.
Joe: Yeah, you’re supposed to go, ‘Hey lady, turn the fucking flash off.’
Tom: Wasn’t part of his thing that he was trying to kick the camera, but he kicked her in the head or something?
Joe: He said he was kicking equipment around, and he accidentally kicked her, he made a bunch of bullshit excuses.
Tom: Its super deliberate you can see it.
Joe: Super! he kicked her in the face! the camera is right here, he kicks it the camera, and it hits her in the mug.
Tom: He fucked her up.
Joe: In his defense though, he might have been super frustrated if that was the case, that someone was flashing in front of his face over and over again.
Tom: By the way, i can totally see losing your shit onstage, i think it’s happened to everybody, but it’s not okay.
Joe: Kicking someone? i can see saying something.
Tom: I’ve wanted to kick someone, for sure, over the course of a career.
