Because he’s still totally punk rawk, above is Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong acting like he didn’t get an Avengers figure in the toy aisle when producers at the iHeartRadio Music festival gave them a one-minute warning that their agreed-upon set time was over. A meltdown that ended with him yelling he’s “not fucking Justin Bieber, you motherfuckers” smashing his guitar all over the stage and then checking into rehab. Us Magazine reports:
“Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong is seeking treatment for substance abuse,” their rep said in a statement Sunday. “Green Day would like everyone to know that their set was not cut short by Clear Channel and to apologize to those they offended at the iHeart Radio Festival in Las Vegas.”
After “Time Of Your Life (Good Riddance)” came out my senior year of high school and taught me to systematically remove/avoid anyone in my life who responded to hearing it with “Ohmygod, this song so makes me cry and think about Smiley Cookies at Eat’n Park after football games,” I vowed to never give one shit about Green Day again. So fuck you, Billie Joe Armstrong, for making me break that vow, I’m going to eat your children even though they’re almost in college now because you’re 40. You’re 40 years old.
