Black Keys Star Embarrassed For Jack White and Slams TMZ

(Radio.com) The Black Keys and Jack White are still not fans of each other, but at least they admit they have a common enemy in a certain gossip news site. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Black Keys bandmates Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach addressed the former White Stripe, who had expressed his distaste - albeit privately - for the group, going so far as to request that his ex-wife Karen Elson take their kids out of the same class as Auerbach's.

"I actually feel embarassed for him," Carney said of White. "I don't hold grudges, man. I really don't. We've all said f-ed-up sh*t in private, and divorce is hard."

He went on to rail against TMZ, who he believes should be "ashamed of themselves" for "dragging poor souls" into the private lives of people - something about which he believes White has similar feelings.

"Everybody should be scrutinized? I don't believe that," he averred. "I think that if you come off with a strong platform or moral agenda, then, yeah, maybe you should be scrutinized if there's a conflict there.
 Like, if you're a TV evangelist who's doing something awful."

He added: "Those e-mails that Jack White wrote that got leaked, as f-ed up as that sh*t is, that was a private conversation, and it doesn't register to me. You know how horrifying it would be if all of our private sh*t was aired? And people go sniffing around looking for this sh*t. And ultimately it's no one's business." more on this story
