When Jane Rocca of Beat magazine tells Jack White he is often referred to as a musical genius, The White Stripes frontman says he tends to focus on the criticism instead. “I was having this conversation with Beck the other day and I was telling him, ‘Isn’t it weird how you can’t get the negative sh** out of your head once you’ve read a bad review, or someone has said something wrong about you.’ People like Britney Spears enter this kind of business for fame and fortune; that has never been my desire. We just make music. Fame hasn’t changed me at all. I am still the same guy.”
Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher fumed to NME that The White Stripes frontman Jack White sold out by recording a song for a Coca-Cola advertisement. “Jack White has just done a song for Coca-Cola. End of. He ceases to be in the club,” Gallagher moaned. “If I needed the money I’d be doing it, but he’s supposed to stand for something else, isn’t he? He’s supposed to be the poster boy for the alternative way of thinking. Coca-Cola man, fu**ing hell! And alright, you wanna spread your message of peace and love, but do us all a favor. I’m not having that, that’s wrong. Particularly Coca-Cola, it’s like doing a gig for McDonalds.”
