Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme drunkenly took a shot at Robin Thicke over his role in the state of music copyright law.
The comments were in reference to the lawsuit by the Marvin Gaye estate against Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams over similarities between the hit song “Blurred Lines” and Gaye’s 1977 song “Got To Give It Up”.
Gaye’s estate won the suit, and were awarded $7.3 million, along with a posthumous co-writing for Gaye on the song.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Homme went off on the strict copyright enforcement, and threw in some choice words about Thicke in the process.
“It used to be, if anything had any hint of anybody else, I wouldn’t play it,” Homme said. “Now, I don’t worry about things, even though copyright law is really f***ed up right now because of that dumb s**t Robin Thicke. What a d*****bag. Talk about thick.”
“Now the copyright law is like, ‘If it tastes like chicken, I guess you stole it,’ ” Homme added. “Thanks, a**hole.”
Homme may have also been a little more forthcoming than usual because, as he put it, he was “really drunk from last night, still.”
