An Icky Thump Indeed
By Seth D. Olson – TicketNews.com
The White Stripes drummer can allegedly be seen engaging in a variety of sex acts on the X-rated footage which has been leaked onto the web.
On the video, a female bearing a remarkable visual similarity to White is seen having intimate contact with a man on a bed in an assortment of sexual situations. Some claim the man in the tape looks a lot like early photos of the band’s singer Jack White.
The White Stripes, which also includes singer-and-guitarist Jack White, recently cancelled all their tour dates for the rest of 2007 because Meg was suffering from “acute anxiety.” The band had planned to tour in support of their latest, critically acclaimed album “Icky Thump.” . . .
Rumors are now circulating that Meg backed out of the fall tour dates on account that she is humiliated about the sex video.
White Stripes’ publicist released the following statement concerning the sex video scandal:“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.”
The Post Chronicle has posted links to the video and encourages readers to judge for themselves.
In mid September, the band posted the following statement on their official website:
“The White Stripes have canceled all remaining tour dates through the end of the year, this includes all dates in the UK this Fall. They thank you for your understanding and well wishes.
Fans can obtain refunds for their tickets at point of purchase, except for Austin City Limits Festival which is nonrefundable due to it being a festival. If you purchased your tickets for any of the canceled shows via a fan pre-sale on the band’s web site, please email [email protected] for refunds.”
