Via: NME Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke doesn't think too kindly of White Stripes/Raconteurs frontman Jack White. Speaking to the NME, Okereke said that White was shirking his responsibility to speak out on public matters: "I was amazed when Jack White said it wasn't his job to be critical about foreign policy because he was being paid to be an entertainer. I thought that was treacherous because it's complicit with the capitalist society. "Selling more records is the only thing that's important to him not provoking debate." Harsh words. While I can certainly empathize with Okereke's view that entertainers have a platform to speak out on important issues, I hardly find it "treacherous" or purely capitalistic to decide you don't want to air out your politics in public. What's everyone else think? Is there an inherent responsibility as an entertainer to try and make the wolrd a better place? Leave some comments below.
