I’m back! And so is Green Day, back in the music news. Their album ¡Uno! dropped in store yesterday and I’m sure it’s being well received but the band is making headlines for some other reasons this week … Reasons that could lead some people to think they’re in a bit over their head. But isn’t that what makes the spectacle so much more enjoyable? It’s like we’re all waiting for the other shoe to drop! Here’s the deal—at this past weekend’s IHeartRadio festival, which features a ton of acts ranging from rock to hip hop, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong lost his cool and snapped on organizers who were giving him the 1 minute left mark. Watch that very entertaining rant below or follow this link.
He then proceeded to smash his guitar like a good punk rocker and threw up a middle finger salute and said there’s your one minute. By the way, Justin Bieber says he’s not mad at Green Day for “making fun” of him … so it’s a safe bet that Bieber won’t get mad at me calling him a douche.
Armstrong in rehab
Anyways! That outburst from Armstrong seems to have prompted another Green Day headline … Armstrong checks into rehab. The story goes that Armstrong was sober for a full year until this past weekend when we got to see the craziness on stage. He’s undergoing treatment for substance abuse, apparently for alcohol. To each his own and best of luck to Billie.
