Newlywed rocker JACK WHITE has slammed BRITNEY SPEARS and JESSICA SIMPSON
for complaining about the media intrusion into their lives, claiming the blonde
beauties have "asked for it completely".
While the WHITE STRIPES frontman has shied away from publicity and remains
notoriously private about his lovelife, Spears and Simpson have regularly
divulged personal information to the press, as well as expose their married
lives in reality
shows BRITNEY AND KEVIN: CHAOTIC and NEWLYWEDS: NICK AND JESSICA.
Spears recently turned on the tabloids, after initially selling her
engagement and wedding photos to gossip magazines, writing a scathing letter to
"false tabloids" on her official website, who publish "lies" about her and
Simpson and husband NICK LACHEY have repeatedly denied tabloid rumours
their marriage is trouble, after reports the pop beauty was having an affair
with JOHNNY KNOXVILLE.
After wedding supermodel KAREN ELSON last week (01JUN05), White has
pleaded for privacy, insisting he has never courted media attention.
He says, "Anytime I've been in the tabloids it wasn't about me. I despise
celebrity, I think it's ridiculous - it's so disgusting to me.
"When you see things in your private life torn apart it just makes you
really sad - not sad for Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson, they want it, they
have no right to complain because they've asked for it completely.
"I never asked for it, all I've wanted to do is write songs."
