Jack White Defends Female Musicians[wppa type=”mphoto” photo=”1674″ align=”left”]Jack White, Hangout Festival (Josh Rhineheart)[/wppa] Jack White at Hangout Festival (Josh Rhinehart)
Meanwhile, in an interview with Pearl Jam’s Mike McCreedy, Jack White says it’s disappointing how women in music are viewed,
“When you have all-female acts or female front people, there’s a different perception. It’s sort of a real shame that if a woman goes onstage with an instrument… that it’s almost a novelty to people, like ‘Oh, isn’t that cute?’” He added, “The ultimate shame of it is that girls have to work twice as hard to really prove themselves.” However, Jack concluded, “In the end, you get something better than any other run-of-the-mill male musician, because they’re really putting it into proving what’s going on there a lot of the time,
because they’re put in a position where they have to.”
Pretty much how it is in every business, right ladies?
FYI, White is releasing his entire performance from Bonnaroo 2014 on DVD, Vinyl Record, etc. on this ThirdMan Record Label. Get Details
