Music Media Heavyweight Bets Money That Josh Homme Will Go To Rehab


Photographer and founder Jeff Kravitz has bet $10 that Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme will go to rehab following kicking photographer Chelsea Lauren last Saturday at a performance in Los Angeles during KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas.

“$10 says tour cancelled so he can go to rehab to fix his issues. Doubt that will help. You can go visit him there.”

He added, “On second thought I’m not sure there’s rehab for being a douche.”

KROQ’s Nicole Alvarez tweeted, “I hope Josh Homme has a come 2 Jesus with his obvious demons & realizes that most importantly , he is a father. His kids require a role model. He needs to do better. Period. I’m looking forward 2 this being the wake up call he needed 2 get 2 a better place. Dick move. Do better.”

          Not much of an ironic man, are you?

            Nope, that’s Tony Stark you’re thinking of.

    I think rehab can help him with any drinking and such that he has been doing.

    And perhaps rehab will also help in him either being less of an asshole or not one at all.

    These are not very nice comments to make to someone trying to address their weaknesses. What he did was horrible and unacceptable, but this is not how to encourage someone to change their behavior and feel like they’re gaining something and not losing something. Josh should go to rehab and also get in touch with his feelings about people and figure out a way to manage or change them. Musically, he is only getting better all the time.
