Sharon Osbourne hopes Josh Homme catches syphilis after the Queens Of The Stone Age frontman blasted her and husband Ozzy for treating bands like "s**t" at their annual Ozzfest festival.
The rock matriarch took exception to Homme's recent comment, made following his experiences on the 2000 leg of the touring event.
When recently asked by U.S. magazine Blender what his worst summer job was, Homme said, "Ozzfest, because they treat the bands like s**t.
"And now, this year, you get to play for free, but it's under the guise of, 'No, we're doing it for the fans!' But it's really for the people who fan Sharon and Ozzy with palm fronds at their house.
"I only make mistakes once, and I won't be playing Ozzfest again."
But Sharon hits back, "I hope he gets syphilis and dies."
