Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme Apologizes For Kicking Photog
Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age has apologized for kicking a photographer during a show Saturday night.
Video posted online appears to show Homme kicking Chelsea Lauren while she was snapping pics of the musician during a performance in L.A.
On Instagram, Lauren said: “My neck is a sore, my eyebrow bruised and I'm a bit nauseous. Assault in any form is not okay, no matter what the reasoning.”
Homme posted an apology on the band’s Twitter account on Sunday. “Last night, while in a state of being lost in performance, I kicked over various lighting and equipment on our stage. Today, it was brought to my attention that this included a camera held by photographer Chelsea Lauren. I did not mean for that to happen and I am very sorry.”
In a video message, the 44-year-old rocker said: “I don't have any excuse or reason to justify what I did. And I'm truly sorry, and I hope you're OK.
"I've made a lot of mistakes in my life and last night was definitely one of them, and I apologize for that to you. I want to be a good man but I think last night, I definitely failed at that.”
