JACK WHITE INTERVIEWED IN "INTERVIEW" MAGAZINE BY BUZZ ALDRIN
This month's "Interview" features an extensive.. uh, interview with Jack White by none other than Buzz Aldrin. Try to pick yourself up a copy before it leaves stores. If you aren't into reading, there's always the pictures to look at. Here's a teaser. Be sure to click on the link above for the full interview.
"ALDRIN: You have a song on the album called "Love Interruption"? What's that about?
WHITE: Well, as a songwriter, it's really dangerous to use the word love in a song. It's a word that has been used in songs so many millions of times before, and it's the most popular topic to ever write about. So I thought that if I was going to be brave enough to actually use the word love in a song, I better be trying to make people think about it—and make myself think about it. I really wanted to stir up the notion of what love could mean, and what we really want when we say that word. It's a very powerful word.
ALDRIN: When love is interrupted, doesn't that mean you've been jilted?
WHITE: I think so, yeah. I think that sometimes love gets in the way of itself—you know, love interrupts itself. We want things so much that we sabotage them."
