Jack White has issued an apology following the remarks he made about a number of musicians, including Meg White and The Black Keys, during a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
Jack White, the former frontman of The White Stripes, has apologised for the seemingly insensitive comments he made in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. White is the cover of June's Rolling Stone magazine and made a series of comments in the accompanying interview in which he appeared to criticise The Black Keys, amongst others, for capitalising on the sound and music style he made so popular.
Jack White has issued an apology to numerous acts.
White's comments about The Black Keys were revealed when his ex-wife, Karen Elson, made public emails between the two which described White's opinions on the band. The revelation was as a result of their ongoing divorce case.

Having never toured Canada before, in 2007 Jack and Meg White decided to finally take to the road and journey North of the border and not only play a couple of dates, but ambitiously play one gig in in each state at venues that don't often have big bands play. "We wanted to play out of the way towns that don't usually get shows.the shows are better, it's better for the people, it's a better experience, it's way more unique, something interesting is going to happen.hopefully."

Jarmusch enlists a diverse cast of indie stars and former colleagues for this modest ensemble, but his uncharacteristically wheezy writing frequently undermines the film's wry humor. Cate Blanchett, in a dual performance, plays an arrogant version of herself as well as her skuzzy, jealous cousin, but the piece's portrait of jealousy and resentment loses steam after you become accustomed to seeing the actress talk to herself. Similarly, The White Stripes' Meg and Jack White provide a brief lesson on inventor Nikola Tesla's Tesla Coil, but save for the creepy, Mao Tse-tung-inspired portrait of Lee Marvin hanging on the wall behind them, the skit is nothing more than an overly long non sequitur. And even a brief appearance by Steve Buscemi can't rescue an insipid bit about two argumentative African-American twins talking racial politics in a Memphis diner.

People have speculated the relationship between The White Stripes almost since the duo first burst onto the music scene, but it seems like now Jack White has finally revealed the truth.
Jack and Meg White, better known as The White Stripes, decided to lie about their relationship because they did not think that critics or fans would take them seriously if they knew the truth. The truth being, that instead of the brother/sister band they claimed they were, Jack and Meg White were actually a husband and wife duo.
In 2002, a Detroit, Michigan newspaper discovered and printed the couple's wedding certificate from 1996. Despite this, the Whites insisted that they were, in fact, siblings, although in a recent interview, Jack White suggested why the lie would have been necessary.

Not unlike his cigar-shop patter with Harvey Keitel in "Blue in the Face," the great American filmmaker Jim Jarmusch has now released a feature length collection of café-style conversation. It consists of eleven semi-fictional segments, the first three of which were released as short films in 1986, 1989 and 1993 respectively. In each, various agents of cool meet at cafes for the title beverage and its symbiotic smokes.
The participants can be as well known as Stephen Wright, Roberto Benigni, Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, Cinque and Joie Lee, Steve Buscemi, Steve Coogan, Alfred Molina, Bill Murray, the RZA and the GZA, or, like the gorgeous Renee French, they can be unknown to everyone except Jarmusch and a small cache of insiders. No less a talent than Cate Blanchett appears opposite herself, playing both a movie star and the movie star's lesser-known cousin.
Nothing much holds the eleven segments together, other than their luscious black-and-white photography -- shot by several different cinematographers over the years -- that only emphasizes the eternal coolness of smart people sitting around and talking about nothing. Certain lines of dialogue pop up more than once, and more often than not the talkers don't really connect on either a verbal or spiritual level; most of the conversations are lively disagreements. None of the world's problems gets solved.
