White Keeps Away From Red Carpet, Avoids Paparazzi

THE WHITE STRIPES frontman JACK WHITE has little sympathy for stars who are hounded by the paparazzi - arguing they should stay out of the limelight. The Icky Thump rocker is rarely seen in the tabloids and credits his relative anonymity to his quiet family life in Nashville, Tennessee. He says, "Being photographed on the street is an invasion of privacy. It's tough. "But we have been really lucky in that sense. It has a lot to do with the fact that Meg (White, drummer) and I don't really walk down the red carpet and go to a lot of L.A. parties to be seen, which I think is sort of false celebrity. "I strongly believe that if you're famous it should be because you did something, and the fame is the side-effect of accomplishment. "In this day and age nobody seems to be looking at it that way anymore."

Well said Jack White but he needs to realize that it is the sub culture of mediocrity whose so called careers cannot survive without never ending daily media plugs.The age is excellence has been railroaded by the likes of Take That and Kylie and Girls Aloud etc etc...they are the pap to Jack White cream of excellence.He does not need the PR ..his work can stand on its own merit ( hoorah) the others cannot.He is an example..not alone but a good one.
