Uh oh! If you ever screw over Green Day’s set time, then you’ll be messing with a very angry Billie Joe Armstrong.
Scheduled to play a 45 minute show at the iHeartRadio festival, their set was cut to 30 minutes to make more room for Rihanna and Usher (who went 25 minutes longer than he was meant to).
Clearly annoyed at the one minute warning on the clock, Armstrong stopped mid-song while playing “Basket Case” to give an angry rant.
“F— this sh–. Gimme a f—ing break. One minute left. One minute f—ing left. You’re going to give me one minute.”
Justin Bieber, who wasn’t even at the show, also got caught in the wrath of Armstrong. “I’m not f—ing Justin Bieber, you mother—-ers. You’ve got to be f—ing joking. I got one minute. One minute left. Now I got nothing left.”
And as he threw his microphone down, the lead singer started to trash his expensive looking guitar and stuck the middle finger out to the crowd.
Yikes! I can see how Armstrong may have overreacted. But to be fair, it wasn’t very considerate for the other artists to take over another musician’s set time.

Justin Bieber is usually very polite in interviews. But during a talk with radio host Mojo from Mojo in the Morning, the singer lost his temper and hung up the phone when he was asked about his mother and One Direction.
Just as a normal interview would go, the chat appeared to be going well in the beginning. However, it started to go downhill when the singer was compared to Justin Timberlake.
Sounding unimpressed, Justin said, “Man that’s crazy ’cause our voices sound nothing alike. I mean, saying I sound like someone else is not really a compliment.”
Nonetheless, Justin and Mojo continue the conversation until Mojo made a cheeky joke about One Direction’s Harry Styles falling for the singer’s mom.
Sounding quite angry, Justin replies, “I think you should worry about me around your mom, bro.”
But wait for it.
This is when the conversation gets SUPER awkward. As Mojo went on to explain that his mother was dead, Justin ends up hanging up the phone. Soon after, his rep calls back to explain that Justin got upset and probably won’t be calling back.
While I can see why Justin would get upset, do you think he went a bit too far? He has gotten in a bit of trouble for his temper, but I really hope the fame hasn’t got to his head!
Listen to the interview here:
Uh…what? One Direction’s Zayn Malik is being under fire by an American blogger for exploiting his Muslim heritage.
According to The Sun, Debbie Schlussel has warned parents to “keep their daughters away” from the British boy band because she claims that Malik had posted tweets for fans about Ramadan and Allah.
“The scary thing is that millions of girls in America and around the world are infatuated with the members of One Direction, including Zayn. He knows the power he has over these mindless girls and is using that influence to preach the Islamic faith. It’s dangerous.”
Continuing her rant, she also said, “With the boy band One Direction, it’s all about pimping Islam amid the deceptive visage of angelic, effeminate boys in a band. Yup, for them there is definitely One Direction: facing Mecca.”
To see this being said is incredibly upsetting. Living in 2012, we should be learning to have more open minds about different religions and races. Not living in a world of fear and hate.
But while Malik hasn’t responded to these comments yet, American Muslim campaigner Wajahat Ali has come to support Zayn, saying it is “empowering” to have a Muslim in a popular boy band.
He said that even though conservative Muslims may disagree with Zayn’s actions (tattoos, ear piercings, smoking), he can “really help open those minds.”
There’s no doubt that there is some pretty crazy shit selling on eBay. But what happens when you arrive on a page with an scary-sounding recorded message?
That’s what happened to this eBay user. To his surprise, he arrived on a page where an eBay seller got incredibly mad when people bought his movie cards when they thought they were buying DVDs.
Wanting people to get the message, he recorded a very frightening message alerting potential buyers.
On another note, this eBay seller recently passed away due to Cystic Fibrosis. RIP, angry eBay seller.
After waiting in sweltering heat for six hours and then two more in the rain, fans waiting for the group were then told the Black Eyed Peas concert in Central Park was simply not going to happen.
“What, Will.I.Am can’t play in the rain? Is Fergie‘s hair gonna get wet,” said Queens resident Brian Moriarty, 26, who lined up with his girlfriend at 3 p.m. hoping to get a prime general admission spot close to the stage.
The pre-show festivities with performances by Taylor Swift, Carole King and Tony Bennet were scheduled to start at 5 but were delayed due to the bad weather, leaving several fans stranded in the heat.
While gates finally opened to concert-goers at 7:45, the police department announced they were shutting everything down due to lightning right after fans had settled into the park.
“We won’t go,” chanted the crowd of some 20,000 New Yorkers (of the 60,000 originally scheduled to attend the performance meant to benefit the Robin Hood Foundation).
And many of them did not. Police had to close in on groups who believed that by squatting in the meadow, they would be treated to the Peas’ musical stylings.
“The heat wasn’t going to stop them, the rain wasn’t going to stop them, but the lightning-it stopped them. It came down to safety for everyone,” according to a statement from the Robin Hood Foundation.
The foundation hopes to reschedule another concert soon, and will provide more information “in the next week or so.”
While BEP can’t control weather, the canceled concert has left a lot of angry fans following a not-so-great performance at the Super Bowl earlier in the year.
With Anti-BEP comments running on Twitter on Thursday night, some haters called it an act of God. But according to band member Taboo from a tweet, Fergie was really upset about the cancellation.
Hopefully, BEP will find a way to please their fans again.
And this time, please no more covers from Guns N’ Roses.
Lady Gaga launched into an angry rant during a recent magazine interview over suggestions that she’s a “manufactured” pop act.
The superstar, who sat down for an interview with Britain’s NME magazine, reacted furiously when she was asked about her public persona and whether her wigs and costumes are all part of an elaborate act designed by her record label.
“Let me tell you something. If you f**king rip my hairbow and my wig off my f**king head, my shoes, my bra, every single thing on my body, and you throw me on a piano with a microphone, I will f**king make you cry,” she raged.
“I feel I have been probed endlessly about who the f**k I am. I have been quite open about it. And still nobody seems to have a clue.”
Gaga was also vocal about songwriters and producers who send her their work, not realizing that she writes her own songs.
“I’m not going to start churning out what you expect. If you want me to be a manufactured act, you can f**k off.”
You tell em’ Gaga! As elaborate your persona is, I don’t think even a record label could create anything as unique and eccentric as you have! Hatas’ gon’ hate!
