Both are musicians from Detroit, sure. But, on paper, total opposites. Poor Julie learned that the hard way on last night’s Jeopardy! when she was given a visual clue — a ghostly-yet-dapper photo of Jack White — and some context about his contributions to the vinyl resurgence … but still answered “Who is Eminem?” In all fairness, perhaps it wasn’t a statement but meant as an actual query: Who is Eminem? We laugh now, but just wait until she sits through an entire Jack White set at Gov Ball wondering where are all the raps.
