According to, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE frontman Josh Homme has struck the latest blow in his battle with Sharon Osbourne — dubbing her a musical nobody. The rift began when Homme accused Sharon and her husband Ozzy Osbourne of treating bands like "shit" at their annual Ozzfest festival. Sharon hit back saying she hoped Homme "gets syphilis and dies." Now Homme says, "I don't know what she is or what she's done. Has she ever made any music? No. I don't know why her name is Sharon. She ain't sharin' anything."

In a recent interview with, Homme offered the following his opinion on this year's "free" Ozzfest: "You'll pay, and there will be only one person who will make any dough. And with the music industry the way it is with downloading, to ask artists to play for free … I might as well skip through the English countryside with a flute. One of the things about my generation is that there's this punk rock guilt where people don't know what they're worth and they're embarrassed to ask for anything for what they do. And that's something that we need to get over. I don't need to be the Sultan of Brunei, but at the same time, would you get your hand out of my crotchpouch please?"

He added, "The question is, do I actually care if Sharon likes me? And the answer is no. It's sort of like, 'Hitler doesn't like you.' Big deal. What's she going to do, breathe on me? The people that I've had troubles with are RANCID, THE DWARVES and Sharon Osbourne. I definitely feel OK about it all.
