"I was a total dick," says the frontman...
Josh Homme

Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has issued a second apology to photographer Chelsea Lauren.

The band played a show in California at the weekend, during which Josh Homme's behaviour became extremely erratic.

Deliberately cutting his forehead, the singer referred to the audience as "retards" and berated headliners Muse.

Kicking the camera of photographer Chelsea Lauren, the equipment struck her in the face leaving her injured. Chelsea Lauren posted her account online, and promised to file a police report against the singer.

Josh Homme issued an apology online, and has now followed this up with a filmed statement in which he apologises directly to the photographer, his band mates, and his family.

Speaking frankly throughout, Josh Homme says "I was a total dick" and that "I don't have any excuse or reason to justify what I did..."

"I've made a lot of mistakes in my life," says the frontman, "and last night was definitely one of them".
