If there is one thing the world needs right now it’s another reminder of what happened between Kanye West and Taylor Swift at last Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. Thank goodness Jack White is willing to put it all on the line and give the public what it wants, nah, needs.
During a premiere of The White Stripes documentary “Under Great White Northern Lights” at the Toronto International Film Festival, White “pulled a Kanye” while the film’s director, Emmett Malloy, was giving a post-feature Q&A.
Dressed all in black, save for white sneakers, White interrupted Malloy and grabbed the microphone saying, “I’m gonna let you finish, I’m gonna let you finish, but Orson Welles made one of the greatest films of all time!” White is a fan of Orson Welles and included lines from Welles’ masterwork, Citizen Kane, in the song “The Union Forever.”
The documentary follows the band on its 2007 tour of Canada where the duo played every province in the the country culminating with a gig in Nova Scotia, which happened to be the band’s tenth anniversary show. [Source: Spinner]
