    Chelsea Lauren is going to press charges, meaning that she's asking for them to be filed.

    Fuck Josh Homme right now. Second apology was better, but he needs to be ready to be held accountable for this. The absolute LEAST he can do is pay her medical bills and replace any equipment that he damaged with his dumbass kick, and that gesture shouldn't lead to any settlements unless Chelsea is OK with that.
    @botley - I thought the same thing about the lights, but he was nowhere near any of them when he swung his leg.

    A shame he has to be a douche right as the band announces a date in my city.

    Usually I have to drive at least 90 minutes to see a decent show.

    For sure. To any people who may think I meant to excuse Josh's behaviour: well, I didn't mean to do that. He's absolutely in the wrong for doing what he did. I do believe he wasn't fully aware of what was happening when he did it, which of course is not an excuse. People hurting other people at a show are wrong for doing so, ESPECIALLY if it's a guy in a band or in another position of responsibility at the show.

    The chattering about "oh, he clearly meant to do it, he's an evil fuck, so much worse because he's a big dude, or drinking, or on drugs, or whatever the fuck else I wish to speculate about"... not necessary, folks. It was just plain ol' wrong. And to me, Josh seemed concerned and upset that he had hurt someone after the fact, and I hope he's never in a position to hurt anyone again with such a juvenile display.

    Look, people have been hurt at NIN shows. Sometimes by the guys in the band. That era is over now, but can you imagine if there was something like Instagram on the Self Destruct tour? Or if, next week at the show in Houston, Reznor throws his guitar in the air during "Terrible Lie" or swings a mic stand around and it lands on a woman's face in the pit? That's rock and roll, kids! It's not really ever been safe. People get hurt (or killed) at rock shows, through no fault of their own, and for no good reason at all, sometimes even by the fault of the artists. I hate that about some of my favourite artists, but it's true. And none of them should get a pass for it.

    I guess he took to the new QOTSA album title to heart then...

    Awful to hear this. I hate any musician who aggressively handles or mistreats a fan in a stupid way. That kick was so exaggerated and out of the way it wasn’t an accident or an “in the moment” event. What a load of bullshit. Hope he pays for bills and damaged equipment for that.

    I don't think we have heard whether Chelsea Lauren is a fan or not. She was working at the show and had been hired by the KROQ presenters to shoot all the bands on the lineup that day.

    I just name dropped the phrase fan. I just mean a person attending in general.

    I’ve seen the video multiple times... I assume he was fucked up on substance(s) thereby misgauging the distance from his foot’s swing to the camera and/or the force behind his showy kick (for lack of a better word). No doubt it must have hurt, but that was not a malicious kick. He’s never really seemed like a particularly nice or warm guy, but I like to think he’s not that much of an asshole and/or idiot to where he’d follow through with what that move ended up costing somebody else (and now costing him), somebody he didn’t even know.

    As for the apology (or apologies), it’s important to read further into to a degree, but some people approach them like a conspiracy theory...it’s almost funny. Unless you’ve had a heart-to-heart with him yourself and are confident in saying you know the guy’s true colors, maybe take a step back, take a chill... That all said, I absolutely think she should have her medical bills comped if that’s not in the works, and who knows what other special treatment I would want to offer her if it was me who kicked her.

    Joshie Poo fucked up. He’s a grown man, the evidence is clear, now he’s to rethink his choices before a show, those that affect both his behavior and abilities up there.
