Hear Jack White Clown Rolling Stone, Foo Fighters From The Stage

Last night, Jack White played a show at Boston’s Fenway Park, and he opened it up by making fun of the Foo Fighters for having a second guitarist onstage “playing the same parts” to cover up any mistakes. He then pointed out that you could probably read about his comments on the Rolling Stone website the next morning, which led to a long digression about rock magazines running BuzzFeed-style listicles and gossipy pieces: “Brought to you by the Kardasian family, Rollingstone.com! 15 outfits that will blow your mind that Taylor Swift wore this month, Rollingstone.com! 10 reasons why Rollingstone.com didn’t cover the Newport Folk Festival for 50 years straight! 12 reasons why Rolling Stone won’t put a black-and-white cover on the cover of their magazine unless you’re dead!” After talking about Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner’s involvement in US Weekly, White stopped himself: “This is becoming a Kanye West-esque rant, per Rollingstone.com. Because apparently, nowadays, you aren’t allowed to speak to your own fans about anything, lest it be a rant.” He was clearly clowning and not ranting out of his mind, but it’s good clowning. Check it out below.

White has had an axe to grind with Rolling Stone ever since the website ran his comments about Meg White and the Black Keys.
