Billie Joe Armstong is SO punk. If your definition of “punk” is similar to Avril Lavigne’s. You know, smashing guitars, dissing fellow pop stars, and expressing yourself with your middle finger and the word “fuck,” just in case the audience is deaf.
“You’re gonna give me one minute?! Let me tell you something, I’ve been around since fucking nineteen eighty fucking eight, and you’re gonna give me one minute?! You’ve gotta be fucking kidding me!” he yelled after being told to wrap it up.
“I’m not fucking Justin Bieber, you motherfuckers!” he added. “Let me show you what one fucking minute fucking means.”
Also, he’s 5’7″ and developed a British accent as a coping mechanism. Listen to how he says “joke.”
UPDATE: On Sunday Armstrong’s rep told E! News that he is “seeking treatment for substance abuse.”
