Jack White: 'Lady Gaga Is All Image With No Meaning'

The White Stripes star also says you 'can't sink your teeth into' her music...

Jack White has appeared to have a pop at Lady Gaga, describing her music as "all image with no meaning".

The former The White Stripes star has told Esquire magazine that he is not a fan of the Poker Face star's material, because there is no substance to "sink your teeth into."


Speaking of Lady G, White explained: "I don't think she lives it because it's all artifice. It's all image with no meaning behind it.

"You can't sink your teeth into it. It's a sound bite. It's very of this age, because that's what people want. They want a Twitter line, a jpeg, an MP3."

Despite criticising Gaga and the popularity of celebrity culture, Jack continued: "The goal of modern celebrity is to make yourself into the lowest common denominator.

"Hey, I'm a guy just like you. I like a beer, a football game'. Especially in reality television, you'll see people will go so far as to make a fool out of themselves just to prove that."

The I'm Shakin' singer added: "Twitter is the most perfect example of modern living. I think the only people who should have [Twitter accounts] are comedians. Because it's all about one-liners."
