It’s Guacamole Gate all over again. Jack White has once again taken the internet by storm with something that isn’t exactly true. Now his label, Third Man Records is trying to put a stop to it with a lengthy Facebook post titled “JACK WHITE CLICK BAIT BINGO EXHAUSTION,” which proves the internet doesn’t know Jack about Jack.
After White did a Q&A on the label’s fan forum that covered topics ranging from touring to his relationship with Meg White, some things got lost in translation. Now, Third Man is setting all the “friends, family, journalists, naysayers, believers, tweeter & ‘grammers.” And they’re certainly not happy about it as they state, “fear not because you are in the age of instantaneous negative internet gratification.”
In the post, Third Man shoots off a list of headlines that hit websites after his Q&A like that he is retiring, will never play festivals again and that Meg White isn’t taking his calls.
So, no, White is not retiring and that comment he made about “I don’t belong here” wasn’t about earth, he just meant the fan forum. He is taking a break from touring, but not forever. He is not quitting music, but is getting ready to head into the studio with Dead Weather and is “involved in several projects we’re not even gonna tell you about right now cause we don’t want to ruin the surprise.”
