The Stripes may have canceled their tour due to Meg’s “acute anxiety,” but it looks like maybe she’s found some ways of relieving it. Of course, when we asked y’all for suggestions about what could’ve caused the duress, we had no idea of a pending (and perhaps involuntary) release of a home sex tape — um, precisely the sort of thing that could fuck with one’s nerves. NSFW screengrab awaits…

The office is split on whether or not this is actually Meg. Could be? Watch here. In any case, the room’s kinda silent, so feel free to use maybe-Meg and partner as metronome and shout out Stripes tunes to soundtrack the fun (“Your Southern Can is Mine”? “When I Hear My Name”?). Too bad she has to keep time with such a small drumstick.

Subject: Regarding your recent Meg White post

Dear Stereogum,

I’m surprised that you would run something like this.

Some people have a very twisted sense of humor and this prank is in
particularly bad taste. The tape circulating on the internet as featuring
Meg White is fake. It?s definitely not Meg.

    Woah! Link NSFW! Link NSFW!

  5. yes, i have been waiting sooo long for this moment. And its finally here!!!

  6. gmak  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    that’s totally not her.
    1- it’s blurry a bit
    2- meg is not that young looking, in fact she looks haggard now, That girl looks way too young to be meg unless this sex tape is ten years old.
    3- that girl is a bit too tan and has a bit of healthy color to her. The White Stripes are a sickly zombie pale white and aren’t even considered human but vampires in some parts of the world.
    so unless this is a ten year old sex tape which Meg would have been having sex with jack white instead of fat guy x then I call bullshit and this tape is bogus.

    wait a minute.. a link to a sex tape is NSFW?? WHY DIDN’T ANYBODY TELL ME THAT WHEN I CLICKED ON A LINK FOR A SEX TAPE, I’D SEE A TAPE OF PEOPLE HAVING SEX?

    Shitgum is bogus. Even if the tape is real. This joke of a site jumps at the chance to host smut of (very) questionable authenticity, while claiming to be about artists and music. And while this is really sad on Shutgum’s part, it’s not a new low. Just par….

    Bad move on the part of Stereogum for posting this story and link to the video. I don’t come here for wholesome discourse, but this is pretty sleazy all around. Shame shame.

  10. stick  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    this blog is for sleazy losers

  11. Katrina  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    wow, i was wondering if you’d actually post on this. i haven’t watched the tape but about a week ago my roommate walked into the kitchen with a traumatized look on his face after watching this. i thought something horrific had happened.

  12. Eugene  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Couldn’t have put it better than T-Bone. It annoys me when people comment on the quality of your music-related posts. However, posting tabloid fodder, ‘specially about Meg White, ain’t cool.

  13. tom  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    I’m telling my mommy………fucking nerds.

  14. “The Stripes may have canceled their tour DO to Meg’s …”

    Umm, not to be a grammar nazi, but I think you were looking for “DUE”. My eyes bleed when I see that kind of mistake. Agreed with the above; show some taste Stereogum. Pretty shitty move.

  16. Dokken  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    There’s a difference between “telling mommy” bullshit, and calling someone out for bad taste. This story is posted bad fucking taste.

  17. Evan  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Touché.

    Grow up Stereogum.

  20. JAck  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Don’t give in to the conservative right Stereogum!

  21. Shut Up  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Oh shut up all you naysayers, there are a lot more things you could be commenting on in the world than a post on a music blog.

  22. Jim-Bob  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Well, it’s obviously most definitely not her, but I appreciate the post if only to get under the collective skin of the prudes, who are the very people that should be subjected to porn.

    Prudes, if you didn’t want to see it, you wouldn’t have clicked the NSFW link. Now go wash your hands and we won’t tell mom.

  23. I agree that SG shouldn’t be linking to NSFW vids…

    But anyway, how many tour cancellations due to “anxiety” or similar reasons do you know that NOT drug related?

  24. chase  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Well, Stereogum can do whatever they want I guess, just as long as they’re okay with the consequences: drawing in teenage boys looking to get off watching a rock star, losing the “prudes” or “conservative rights” that are according to some of you, the only ones that should be offended by this. But if they don’t recognize that there is a considerable crowd of “prudes” that frequent their site for the music, well, that’s a shame.

  25. I agree that SG shouldn’t be linking to NSFW vids…

    But anyway, how many tour cancellations due to “anxiety” or similar reasons do you know that NOT drug related?

    I don’t think anyone sounds like a prude. And no one said they didn’t wish to see it(except for obvious NSFW guy). It’s just that when I want to hear about music I check out music sites. When I want porn I go to porn sites.
    But it’s OK. Shitgum has more creditbility than any other porn site in the music biz.

  28. sorry for the dupe

  29. cyndi  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Show some respect. That is clearly not Meg. Shame on you.

  30. Jim-Bob  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Dear Stereogum,

    On behalf of SG reader Chase and friends, please don’t post anymore mp3s with the words “fuck,” “shit,” “cunt,” “motherfucker,” “asshole,” “cock,” “bitch,” or……”fellatio” in them. Further, please refrain from posting on albums with said dirty words contained therein, or with album cover art that may or may not symbolize a vagina, or photos apparently containing Kevin Barnes’ penis. The full force of the prude nation is directly linked to our power as consumers, so don’t make us use it by boycotting your free site. You’ve been warned.

  31. bryan  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Haters: you do sound like prudes. If you don’t want to watch the video, don’t click the link. Just move on to the next post, morons.

  32. Dégeulasse…. you are stupid to publish that!

  33. jalfredprufrock  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    C’mon, guys… That obviously isn’t Meg – and even if it was – and even if you had to run the story – Was the screen cap & link really necessary? I’m not being prudish, I just think it’s more than a little sensationalistic. Feel the same way about p4k’s Of Montreal dick photos. And any mention of Deerhunter. Ever. That shit’s just uncalled for.

  34. Most people now think this is a fake (click my name for the link)

  35. west  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    It must not be so wrong to post such a story/video if so many people are reading and watching. Stereogum can post whatever they want; they’re (sort of) just reporting what’s going on in the music world. As for the no NSFW warning. Why don’t you people actually work and stop clinking on links about SEX TAPES.

  36. rick package  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    That’s Natasha Nice, not Meg White.

    Look at dem titties jiggle!!!

  37. If it was Meg White, wouldn’t she have eaten him afterwards? Just goin’ by what I’ve heard ’round the ol’ watercooler.

  38. booboojuice  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Mellow Out! have any of you hating on this story actually ever had sex, or are you too busy on here beating off to pictures of arcade fire and dan deacon?

  39. This just in…

    “Prudish Readers of Stereogum cancel their tour of the site due to acute anxiety over seeing Meg White getting plowed”.

  40. Dave  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    that’s defintately way too tan to be meg.

  41. chase  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Jimbob- is this site free? There are an awful lot of banner ads floating around on the page– and since when is not appreciating home-made, maybe stolen video-footage of two people having sex prudish?

  42. Dima  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    First of all, there is no man in the world who doesn’t like porn. Especially, you stupid undersexed indie kids who obsess over music. Rock and porn are a great deal, so why not. Now there may be some consequences to SG but that is neither here nor there. If you don’t want to watch the video, then don’t click on it. Screw you prudes!!

  43. Jim-Bob  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Since forever, Chase, that’s when.

    Now run along..aren’t you due at a Romney rally somewhere?

  44. max  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    you are not a prude if you think a music blog’s writers and readers are pathetic sex deprived losers who have to be sleaze balls about any half decent (which is all any of them are) “indie rock” girl.

  45. The Other Matthew  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    Definitely not her. She looks similar, but there are certain shots in which you can absolutely tell it’s not Meg. I can see where the mistake would be made, though.

  46. Veronica  |   Posted on Sep 24th, 2007 0

    That is SO NOT Meg. I have seen her change before, not nude or anything but bra and undies at a Stripes photo shoot I worked on, and her stomach doesn’t look like that.
