Jack White slams 'insincere' Lady Gaga

2012-12-06 20:59
 
Los Angeles - Jack White has slammed Lady Gaga by saying that the star is "all image with no meaning".

The Freedom at 21 singer and star of The White Stripes, has blasted the pop star, saying he doesn't think she is as sincere as she makes out, and her image and risqué performances come with little depth.

"I don't think she lives it, because it's all artifice. It's all image with no meaning behind it," he told Esquire magazine.

"You can't sink your teeth into it. It's a sound bite. It's very of this age, because that's what people want. They want a Twitter line, a Gif, a Jpeg, and MP3."

Staunch traditionalist

Jack - who is a staunch traditionalist, and presses mainly vinyl records with his Third Man label - also doesn't have time for Twitter, as he doesn't find most of the people using it say interesting things.

"Twitter is the perfect example of modern living. I think the only people who should have Twitter accounts are comedians. Because it's all about one liners," he said during the interview.

"I would love it if Conan O'Brien or Reggie Watts or Stephen Colbert were to walk into a room and tell me one joke and leave. But you don't want Gore Vidal telling you, 'I'm doing my dishes right now.' "
