Jack White Says Meg White is Type ‘Who Won’t High-Five Me When I Get the Touchdown’
While Jack White is certainly no stranger to music headlines, his ex-wife and former White Stripes bandmate Meg White remains a mystery. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Jack opens up about Meg and their musical relationship — or lack thereof — these days.
“I don’t think anyone talks to Meg. She’s always been a hermit,” he said. “When we lived in Detroit, I’d have to drive over to her house if I wanted to talk to her, so now it’s almost never.”
While Jack wouldn’t go into detail about their personal relationship, he gave some insight into what their musical collaborations were like.
“She’s one of those people who won’t high-five me when I get the touchdown,” he said. “She viewed me that way of ‘Oh, big deal, you did it, so what?’ Almost every single moment of the White Stripes was like that. We’d be working in the studio and something amazing would happen: I’m like, ‘Damn, we just broke into a new world right there!’ And Meg’s sitting in silence.”
