Jack White

FINALLY Apologizes to the Black Keys

Jack White Apologizes Black KeysThe feud between Jack White and The Black Keys is one step closer to being squashed -- 'cause the ex-White Stripes singer released a lengthy apology Saturday to try making amends.

Rolling Stone published an interview with Jack White Saturday that seemed to further his beef with the Black Keys ... but hours later White backtracked saying his words came out wrong -- so he felt inclined to apologize.

We broke the story ... Jack's ex-wife submitted a bunch of emails last year to a judge saying the rocker was a threat to her safety -- including one message where he called Black Keys lead singer Dan Auerbach an "a**hole" who rips off his music.

Jack says his wife's lawyer only submitted the emails to "villainize me in a private legal scenario" -- and his comments were part of a "bigger scenario that is difficult to elaborate on."

As for the Keys ... Jack says he wishes them nothing but success from here on out ... and apologizes to everybody else he may have offended -- like Meg WhiteAdele ... and the list goes on (he's ticked off a lot of people.)

Apologize for what???? Stating the truth? Pretty much everything he said was right. I am tired of people forced into apologies for their opinions. I am disappointed he caved to PR pressure.

I like Jack White. Always have. I think Karen was trying to use him to further her 'music career'. That didn't go where, as she sucks as a singer. Oh Jack. Women can be mean, evil b1tches. She totally tried spinning the fallout as making you the bad guy (with her emails). I saw right through that. Wash your hands of that crazy woman, and just be thankful atleast you got your lovely kids from that experience atleast!

He isn't apologizing. He is shutting people up. Apology/Not Apoligies are the best. Say it. Don't mean it.

It seems as if these days you're not allowed to dislike anyone or anything in regards to celebrities, movies and music and especially say so out loud..SO STUPID. IMO he doesn't owe anyone an apology. ALSO it's not like he went on The Tonight Show and said these things.. he said this in private. Now a days if you say out loud you don't like someone or something you get called a "hater" ...I cant stand that term..very juvenile IMO.

Black keys were awesome when they were a duo. Now they have 6 people in the band and lost that raw garage sound.
