Jack White and Dave Grohl Release Statement About White’s Recent Rant

wpid-jack-white-would-you-fight-for-my-love-vid.jpeg

In case you have been asleep most of the day, you probably have heard about Jack White and his Boston rant last night against Rolling Stone. The former White Stripes frontman stopped himself and deemed the rant to be “Kanye West-esque.”

The rant, like you probably read took jabs at Rolling Stone and how they sold their musical soul to the paparazzi devil by posting such riveting article like “What Taylor Swift Wore” and even took a jab at the Foo Fighters and the fact that they have three guitarists.

Instead of getting into a word debate with White, the Foo Fighters took to their Twitter and posted a playful response to the word vomit with the caption, “Busted…behold, the secret of the Foo Fighters sound….”

Classic.

Instead of letting this spin out of control and become a tabloid making headline (like it hadn’t already), both White and Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl have responded to the audio in a joint statement, well kind of; both White and Grohl actually have the same publicist.

What a way to keep it in the family.

Read the statement below and hear the audio after that.

“Dear dream-makers of the media….

Last night Jack White made a joke on stage!

There was a minor equipment mishap, specifically with his guitar, and in an effort to keep his audience engaged, he made a joke! It was meant to be funny and self deprecating: “hey sorry, you’re stuck with just me up here…” vs the Foo Fighters who have three guitar players on stage and regularly play stadium shows.

Jack has the upmost respect for the Foo Fighters and communicated with Grohl this morning.

So if you’ll let us, we’ll all continue with our day and we assure you: All is well in the rock n roll world.”

Do you think White was just being sarcastic or was it a case of narcissist douchebaggery? You be the judge of that and for the record, White was in Boston (like we said earlier), not Cleveland. When you listen to the audio, you’ll understand.

Drake “Apologizes” to Rolling Stone

drake

Looks like the whining that Drake had done yesterday about losing the cover of Rolling Stone caught up to him because late last night he published a blog post in a way apologizing for acting like a brat.

During the day though, the “Started From the Bottom” rapper deleted one of his tweets where he lashed out at the magazine for waiting last-minute to reveal that he was no longer going to be the cover story; it had been replaced by a memorium for Philip Seymour Hoffman.

In a statement titled, “Tough Day at the Office,” Drake apologizes twice, first “to anybody who took my initial comments out of context” and then “to everybody who took my cover comments the wrong way.” He ends the entire post by apologizing to Rolling Stone for taking a chance “on a kid from Toronto.”

How about that for trying to extinguish those burnt bridges?

“Tough Day at the Office

With today being the 5th anniversary of So Far Gone I figured it’s fitting to return to it’s place of its origin in order to clear the air about an extremely emotional day. I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Phillip Seymour Hoffman. He is one of the most incredible actors of our time and a man that deserves to be immortalized by this publication. My frustration stemmed from the way it was executed. The circumstances at hand are completely justifiable (on the magazines behalf), but I was not able to salvage my story or my photos and that was devastating. They ran the issue without giving me a choice to be in it or not. I would have waited until it was my time because I understand the magnitude of the cover they chose but I just wasn’t given that option and that made me feel violated. I apologize to anybody who took my initial comments out of context because in no way would I ever want to offend the Hoffman family or see myself as bigger than that moment. I am still the same person. Today I was forced out of my character and felt the need to react swiftly. These days are the worst ones. Waking up after a great night in the studio and it’s your day to be picked apart. After dwelling on it for a few hours or days you will come to the conclusion that you brought it on yourself almost every time. So here I am having that moment. I once again apologize to everybody who took my cover comments the wrong way. I respect Rolling Stone for being willing to give a kid from Toronto a shot at the cover. I guess this is a day to learn and grow.

Sincerely,

The Boy”

Drake Claims He’s “Done with Magazine Interviews”

Someone call the waaaa-bulance because Drake is acting like a big baby.

The Canadian rapper is not taking the fact that Rolling Stone Magazine replaced his cover story last-minute to honor the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, lightly. The Nothing Was the Same rapper took to Twitter to express his disgust with the publication after they previewed the interview which included him calling Macklemore’s text to Kendrick Lamar about his Grammy win as “wack as fuck” and criticizing Kanye West’s Yeezus.

On Twitter, he also slams Rolling Stone for putting in the article that he slammed Yeezus when he never even spoke about the album. He also revealed that he would no longer be doing magazine interviews because of all of the issues surrounding this cover story.

His tweets can be read here:
