Kele Okereke criticises White Stripes man's politics
Speaking in this week’s issue of NME. the singer had a go at White for not speaking out on political matters.
Okereke said: “I was amazing 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.”
