Ryan Adams vs. Jack White

RYAN ADAMS has elaborated on his war with "Little Girl JACK WHITE", calling him a "fucking ponce" and insisting he turned down the role WHITE took in the forthcoming American civil war pic 'COLD MOUNTAIN'.
The alt.country supremo wanted to know if White had answered his earlier jibes delivered in the NME. Adams says the two fell out when White became precious after hearing Adams had changed some of the lyrics of White Stripes songs he was covering in concert.
"Did Little girl White talk back?", he asked. "What a fucking movie star. I don't have a problem with him - he started it. I know that's what you say in school. But what's he doing on the Internet seeing what's being said saying 'I see you changed my lyrics', Fucking ponce."
Hitting his stride, Adams added: "I mean, shit - I get to shop at 40 or 50 more stores for clothes than that guy does. Think of the limitations. Just buy him a gallon of red paint. I don't fucking get it. Whatever...
"I don't really have a problem with him. Good luck to him in Romania. It's supposed to be freezing. He must be hating it. You know they asked me if I wanted that movie role and I turned it down. Anthony Minghella asked me first.
"I was up for the part first and I turned it down. You know why? Because I didn't see acting anywhere on my job application to be a rock fucking star, you know. It's true. That's fucking fact."
He added: "I turned it down because we were touring anyway. I was wanting to tour and do this acoustic thing. And they said 'Well you can come to Romania and we'll pay you anyway and you can have three or four lines and you get to play a banjo made out of a pumpkin.' I'm like 'fuck you man'. I make that money in two gigs. Put it this way - it didn't seem specifically that much to me. And it's three fucking lines. Three lines in a two-and-a-half hour film. I'd rather get a gun and blow my eyeball out. And you got to go freeze your ass off. You do get to hang out with Nicole Kidman, which isn't bad. But its not like she'd be going - so tell me about your life. She's fucking Nicole Kidman."
Jack White has yet to respond to the jibes. His spokesperson said that if he was to, he may keep it private between him and Adams

Ryan versus Jack, gotta love a good fight in the papers.......I'll take Ryan hes got 3:1 odds

I've read that before, Adams sounds like a huge dick in that article to me. Get over yourself, please, both of you. Neither of you provide anything new or original to the scene, grow up.

It's cool, I've liked both of them at one point in time, I still own White Blood Cells.

I just think it's lame that both of them think they're some huge gift to music and think they need to prove that by attacking each other in public.

I dont know, maybe I'm just sick of hearing about Ryan Adams. That's probalby it.

Yeah, its pretty immature, but hilarious all the same, some of Adams quotes crack me up though, like the one about the red paint ...........

Imagine if they decided together to start this fued just for a laugh.......

That would be pretty cool actually.

I just find the whole thing odd considering I remember reading Ryan Adams say in about 3 different magazines that White Blood Cells was his favorite new album.

If it is just a huge joke, they got me.

From what I've read in the press, Ryan Adams has a real attitude problem. To result to name-calling is really really childish.

Of course, isn't Ryan the one who threw some guy out of a concert after saying something about Bryan Adams?

Ryan has really been taking attitude lessons from his good friend Courteney Love. They both think they're bigger and much more important than they actually are. Everytime I open a music rag, Ryan is name-dropping the celebs he's hung out with, name-calling other people, talking about how important he is and that he's a "rock fucking star." Big deal, Ryan.

I'll take Jack anyday.

I always thought that he was an alt-country star....

That's about as un-rocking as you can get...
