Billie Joe Armstrong Has A Message For Green Day Fans
Just in case there was ever any doubt that they’re breaking up (of course they’re not, you guys…), BJA addressed the comments on an Instagram live video, which ace fan site Green Day Authority captured, and you can watch below.
“Some of you are asking about Green Day and if there’s anything wrong, or if we’re breaking up. The answer is: no,” Billie Joe says. “I am having some fun with some of my friends. I am what you call ‘a musician’. Some people have a hard time calling it that sometimes. With that said, shut the fuck up. You’re a fucking whiner, and I’m playing music because that’s what I’m supposed to do. That’s what people that play guitar, and drums, and bass, and they sing – this is what we do. So if you don’t like it, then fuck off. And if you do like it, come along, because it’s a lot of fun. Alright? Have a pleasant day.”
Very well said, sir.
