The Atlantic examined Jack White and his lyrical output from over the years and determined he's got a real life problem with women, and in particular, women who are in control. The article, Jack White's Women Problem, appeared in Wednesday's online edition of the 'zine, and starts off with:
Blunderbuss doubles down on the White Stripes' singer's long lyrical campaign against females he can't control.
Some other choice passages from the article follow:
White as a lyricist has been obsessed with women for more than a decade now, perhaps to a greater extent than any other rock star in his generation.
What White really seems to dislike is when women choose their own boxes. He's a famous control freak, and in his songs, women are constantly threatening his control, forcing him into playing the role of victim. His response? Vitriol.
