Jack White Has Never Used A Phone And He Thinks People Look Silly

Yesterday, we got to know that Glenn Danzig still uses a flip phone. Today, we study that Jack White has never even owned a cellphone of any kind. (Presumably, he only makes use of antique rotary telephones hidden in tastefully upholstered furniture.) And he thinks the remaining of us look damn silly staring down at our tiny little screens regularly.

White mainly says as much in a new interview with the UK’s Channel 4 News“For somebody like me, who is one of the few who don’t use a cellphone, it’s pretty funny to walk down the road and see everybody doing this,” he says, miming somebody trying to look down at their  screen.

“I’m an anomaly, and I’m taking a look at everyone and to me, everybody looks foolish,” he states. “And then you definitely like, no matter, that’s their lives. Or who knows, maybe this is the way everything is going to be from now on. I do not know. No person does. Perhaps it’ll turn into implants. Most likely it’ll turn right into a microchip behind our eyeball or whatever.”

White has been a known phone hater. He’s always complained about camera phones at his shows, and since 2018, he’s banned all phones outright, forcing concertgoers to place their gadgets away in particular Yonder pouches. (Not that stopped followers from recording poor-quality audio of his shows from inside the Yonder pouches. Where there is a will, there is a way)
