A few days ago, Jack White said some vaguely unflattering things about Lady Gaga. Sample: “I don’t think she lives it because it’s all artifice. It’s all image with no meaning behind it.” That quote obviously got picked up, and now Jack White would like to backhandedly clarify the statement: “I never said anything about her music, or questioned the authenticity of her songs in any way. I was in a conversation about the drawbacks of image for the sake of image … Peace to Lady Gaga and I fully congratulate and compliment her on her championing of gay rights issues and the momentum it’s given to help create change.” Okay, cool.
