Jack White Ranted About the Foo Fighters and Rolling Stone

At his Fenway Park show last night, Jack White went off on the Foo Fighters and Rolling Stone for 4 minutes in a Kanye-esque rant.

First he criticized the Foo Fighters for having a second guitar player “playing the same parts” to hide mistakes. Then he went in on Rolling Stone for their web content which he joked was “brought to you by the Kardashian family” and said how their articles are now like “15 outfits that will blow your mind that Taylor Swift wore this month” and “12 reasons Rolling Stone won’t put a black and white cover on the cover of their magazine unless you’re dead.”

Three minutes later he said, “OK, I’m officially supposed to stop now, because this is becoming a Kanye West-esque rant. Because apparently, nowadays, you aren’t allowed to speak to your own fans about anything, lest it be a rant.”

No, you’re definitely allowed to speak to your fans about anything. And certainly in an impassioned way like you were doing. Just know that’s the very definition of a rant.

He went on, “So forget ISIS, forget the war in the Middle East, forget any problems at home, forget gay marriage, forget everything you ever thought about everything. This not a rant. This is just me saying, HELLO CLEVELAND!”

Jack White is so cool. He doesn’t like things that other people like!
