Jack White Says Meg White Is a Hermit
Singer/guitarist/songwriter/producer/probablydudewhogetscoffee Jack White said in an interview with Rolling Stone that he doesn’t speak with former White Stripes bandmate Meg White much since the group broke up back in 2011.
Mr. White said a big part of why he doesn’t speak to her much lately is that she’s a bit of a homebody.
“I don’t think anyone talks to Meg — she’s always been a hermit,” Jack said in the RS interview. “When we lived in Detroit, I’d have to drive over to her house if I wanted to talk to her, so now it’s almost never.”
It probably doesn’t help that Jack himself doesn’t own a cell phone, according to an interview with NPR.
“I don’t have a cell phone,” White told ‘All Songs Considered.’ “I don’t like to carry a wallet with me if I can help it. I just don’t like having things in my hands like that.”
Since the band broke up, little has been seen of or heard from Meg White. But just in case you doubt her coolness, check out this live version of ‘Blue Orchid.’
