Jack White doesn't enjoy being ''idle'' and crams as much as possible into his days.
Jack White is a ''workaholic''.
The 38-year-old singer, who has released his second solo album 'Lazeretto' and runs Third Man Records in Nashville, Tennessee, claims he can't deal with being ''idle'' and he gets up at 6am every morning.
Jack - who has kids Scarlet, eight, and Henry, six, with ex-wife Karen Elson - said: ''Some days I'll take the kids to school, and when I'm not on tour I'll be here. There's always a lot to do. A friend said recently, 'You're like me, a workaholic'. It's hard for me to talk about it because I might accidentally sound like I'm trying to fulfil some childhood guilt trip my father gave me, but it's not so much about work as a constant need to create something. If I'm idle, I don't think I deserve the right to be called an artist or a musician.''
The former White Stripes star insists it's still ''insanely hard'' to be an artist these days and the trick is to get to the point where it looks easy.
And Jack admitted he can obsess over detail and has to make sure everything is perfect when it comes to releasing new music.
He told MOJO magazine: ''It's just how I am. You really have to pay attention, all the time, to get the details right.''
