Green Day’s frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is headed to rehab for substance abuse, RumorFix has learned. The announcement comes just days after the singer went on a profanity laced tirade during the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.
Billie exploded after his band’s set was allegedly cut short from 45 minutes to 25 minutes. ”You’re gonna give me one minute? I’ve been around since 198-f*cking-8,” the singer screamed after being notified while performing to wrap up.
“I’m not f*cking Justin Bieber, you motherf*ckers … You’ve gotta be f*cking joking. This is a f*cking joke. I got one minute — one minute left. Oh, now I got nothing left,” he screams before smashing his guitar and throwing the microphone.
In a statement to The Associated Press, Green Day apologized “to those they offended at the iHeartRadio Festival” and said its set was not cut short by Clear Channel, the host of the two-day festival.
